Business Rockstars |

Dora Lau, president of Dora L. Inc., became frustrated with the small selection of beautiful, well priced bras for full figured women and decided to launch Curvy Couture, a collection that uses the latest technologies to create intimate apparel that enhances a woman’s curves and makes her feel glamorous and sophisticated. It was her dream come true to help women feel confident about their curves, and each design is her vision. Lau has married the elements of beauty, elegance and the artistry with the need for trustworthy, targeted, comfortable support designed around the distinctions of the curvy female’s body. The result is an unparalleled product of functional sensitivity and aesthetic. Known for her commitment to utilizing innovative materials and cutting-edge technologies, Lau continues to raise the bar as she introduces new creations each season.
