The Inspiration Behind SCULPTURA®
A Message from SCULPTURA's Designer
I’ve acquired an abundance of practical knowledge over the years. My SCULPTURA® [sculpt-it-your-way] shapewear dresses are a physical manifestation of the decades of unique experiences and useful information I’ve picked up along the way as a litigation attorney, businesswoman, media producer and host, speaker, and international beauty spokesperson.
When I was 13, I was the victim of a sexual assault by a relative. I didn't tell anyone for years and I remember feeling unbelievably embarrassed and ashamed. I lived my teenage years covering my body and “uglying” myself up because I didn't want to look or feel like I was “asking for it”. It was not until I walked out onto a stage in a swimsuit during a beauty pageant at the age of 41 that I was finally able to let go of all the guilt, fear and shame. To my absolute surprise, I won the title of Mrs. New York America 2006 and on that day, I fell in love with all my imperfections, whether perceived or real, and decided to celebrate instead of hide everything about myself, including my body. This ideology set the framework for my desire to create SCULPTURA®.
A few years ago I was looking to buy a comfortable, high-quality, professional looking figure flattering dress. I came across a few "slimming" dresses, all kinds of bras and shapewear and even some butt enhancing panties, but I wasn't able to find a dress that helped make my bust, waist, hips and booty all look good. So I took out a piece of paper and start sketching some designs. Fast forward several years and countless hours of engineering and innovation and lots of trial and error, and I'm proud to say that I was issued a United States utility patent for the world's first dress system that helps correct figure issues with our exclusive, customizable "Body Sculpting Technology".
I've been told by industry experts that the SCULPTURA® [sculpt-it-your-way] shapewear clothing line may change the landscape of the fashion industry.
