ABOUT MYA & MORE THAN YOUR AVERAGE
A step outside of the box to live color-fully, More Than Your Average is an outward and visual expression of our innermost confidence through one-of-a-kind plus size vintage finds.
It says, “I’m here, this is me, authentically, always!” Mya Price’s philosophy is concise but cogent: “When we look good, we feel good. When we feel good, we generate positive energy that impacts the way we make others feel.”
However, Price realized the fashion industry did not make “looking good” accessible for a significant segmented woman. She says, “I observed a gap in the clothing selections for women considered to be plus-size. Since middle school, I’ve been a size fourteen. Despite numbers, all women deserve style and choice.”
So, in 2017, Price launched More Than Your Average (MTYA), an online vintage and thrift boutique for women size 12 and up who find it challenging to acquire inspiring pieces in a typical store.
MTYA caters to individuals who want to “step outside of their comfort zone and embrace their originality.” Price says, “I believe all women should be celebrated through fashion, no matter their size or shape. All women deserve equal access to pieces that empower them every day and also put a smile on their face.”
