President and CEO
Hips & Curves®
Rebecca Jennings is the epitome of a self-made woman and a successful entrepreneur. She put herself through college earning a Bachelors degree in Psychology. Then she taught herself accounting as a practical and marketable profession. And, in her spare time, she took photography, art and creative writing classes.
Then in 2000, yearning to channel her creative energies into her own business and to have a positive impact on plus size women struggling with their body image, she launched HipsandCurves.com — the now award-winning online lingerie store that celebrates plus size women's desire and right to look and feel sexy.
Armed with only a computer, a credit card and her powerful drive, Rebecca quickly discovered that running her own business satisfied her love of numbers, her creative passions and her desire to help plus size women feel more beautiful.
Rebecca's hands-on approach in every aspect of her business is the key to this company's multi-million dollar success — from her early days of learning html code to ensure her website captured the right look and feel, to today where she's focusing her energies on the strategic development that will ensure her company's continued growth. Most recently, she launched a new private label line designed to further build the Hips & Curves brand.
Rebecca is sought after not only for her industry expertise in the plus size lingerie market, but also for her insights in how women feel about their body image, how fashion influences those feelings, the role men play in buying lingerie — and what helps women accept and love themselves.
Thanks to Rebecca, HipsandCurves.com is in its 10th year of celebrating and empowering full figured women around the world.
