Philadelphia, Melissa’s home city. While she grew up outside of the city, it was the place where she started her career and her love of comedy. A lot of her friends and family still reside in and around the Philadelphia area so we always enjoy our time in the city.
If you come to Philadelphia to learn about the history of America either through the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall or even grabbing a drink at City Tavern you might be wondering if there are any places to shop for Plus Size Clothing.
After all the city is much smaller than it’s sister city up north, New York City. Well the answer to that question is yes!
