MONTREAL, Oct. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Beyond the Rack, North America's fastest growing online retailer announced today that it has launched a new destination accessible through its website called My Curvy Closet - devoted solely to plus-size fashions.

"Listening to and acting upon feedback from our members has always been integral to our success and continued growth."
My Curvy Closet will be accessible to all new and existing members of Beyond the Rack. Membership in the club is always free.
