Fall Thoughts

by Robin Lee on 10/16/15

Well here we are heading  into the Fall season and people will be looking for cold weather riding gear.  I am excited that we have added so many new styles for cold weather riding such as more chaps and leather pants and new style jackets and vests. We have also added more big mens motorcycle gear and we always carry the full line of sizes for all of our motorcycle riding gear.   Sonsy is also changing up the way we are shipping, adding Free shipping now,  I am excited again about this business.  Its fun to start a new season, and now we are looking forward to the Holiday season as well.  So get out there and enjoy the beautiful fall weather! Get some  wind in your face and feel the freedom to just ride!

Ramblings of the Sonsy Shopkeeper

Since 2010 SonsyApparel.com has been building a customer base focusing on Plus size women's motorcycle wear. I have been very proud of what SonsyApparel has been able to accomplish in these last few years. We have built an awesome customer base and we are now getting repeat customers as well.  I am proud of my business and take great pride in offering a more personalized shopping experience and customer service that is sometimes lacking in other on line stores.  When someone calls with a question or problem, I am the one they speak to, not a machine or answering service.

In all the years Sonsy has been in operation, we have also had other clothing available in the full range of women's sizes from XS on up, as well as men's leather motorcycle apparel all the way up to Big and Tall sizes. I am hoping in the near future to be able to market to the masses to get the word out that we cater to all bikers' sizes out there. Hence my newest slogan, "Leather Motorcycle Apparel for EVERY Biker Body!

The name has also been slowly evolving to Sonsy Leather which I think is a more descriptive name than SonsyApparel. That name came about as I had a brick and mortar store selling women's leather and plus size lingerie as well. It was more a Leather and lace place.  I would have chosen that name, the Leather and Lace Place, but someone already had it. Darn It!  My original web store and domain was SonsyLeather and I think I like that much better as it is exactly what we are!  Oh I have a few other goodies out there on the web store, but the focus is offering good quality apparel for Every Biker body!  

Fine Tuning Everything

by Robin Lee on 02/15/14

Well it is a new year and we have had some exciting changes at Sonsyapparel.com  We have switched over to a new platform for the store section of the site and despite a few initial glitches, we seem to have things running fairly smoothly now. Several orders have come through and no real complaints! 

I am in the process of making some changes to our product line too.  I have just set up some new accounts for handbags (conceal carry ones as well!) and exciting biker products to add to our line. We are also looking to design a great logo for Sonsy for some t-shirts and tanks that I have in mind for the ladies.
I have also decided to add a new category for some adult products and lingerie for the adventurous souls out there! I carry lingerie in my store now along with some Kama Sutra products and a few little fun products as well and they are fairly well received.
Sonsy is also making a move this Spring.  I am selling the building I currently have in Quincy and have decided to reopen shop a little closer to home in Missouri.  Hopefully this will all be in place sometime mid March! 

Exciting changes!

Along with the plus size apparel we carry for the biker community we will shortly be adding a great line of plus size corsets and some other adult products to the web site!  We have had some requests for some edgier products, and I have searched for some good fitting, good quality products for plus size ladies. I am still working on getting more Stainless jewelry onto the site. I will also be adding more halters, and the line of caftans which are great for loungewear and beach cover ups.  They also make great gifts!  

I have an idea to create a line of Sonsy t-shirts and tank tops for my Sonsy ladies, and we are hoping to have those up and running by next Srping1  

We have had a pretty slow time this summer, and we are hoping for a much busier fall riding season. 

Responses From Viewers

I have to say it is great to hear from so many lady riders and the positive feedback has been so inspiring!  I am trying very hard to find good fitting, quality items for the Plus Size ladies and men too.  One thing I have discovered lately is that I really don't like the term Plus size.  I realize it is a good all encompassing word for men and women, but there has to be a better word.  I love my word Sonsy, meaning voluptuous and full figured, sassy and spirited. Unfortunately, when folks search on the internet they use the words plus size leather or apparel, so I have to stay with that so the search engines will find me. 

I have also receivesd some wonderful inspiring stories from my customers, and I welcome any comments or suggestions for the site!

Thank you all you wonderful Sonsy Ladies!
