Since her big break on Glee, actress Amber Riley has proudly been a style role model for plus-size women. And she’s a master of flaunting her curves on the carpet. (Remember this amazing Golden Globes style moment?) Now, she’s letting fans share in her fashion sense by letting them shop some of her favorite looks … from her own wardrobe!

Riley and her sister have teamed up for the online boutique Rileyland Fashions, which allows customers to purchase a number of plus-size designs.

“My sister and I are clothes fanatics and since so many of my curvier fans always express that they like my clothes I thought why not clean out my closet and fill up all of yours,” she wrote on Facebook along with a first-look photo of the site. She added, “The clothes are affordable and most are never worn! There will be an official website coming soon with more than one of [a] kind clothing and more sizes for you plus size cuties!”

The duo even set up an Instagram account to showcase some of the dresses, tops and shoes available — which sold out almost instantly, leading them to post the below message.

We love the singer’s body confidence and the positive message she continues to send to fans. “I don’t deprive myself,” she told PEOPLE back in 2010. “But I want to be healthy.” And overall Riley embraces her entire body. “I love my breasts, my face, my butt,” she shared. “I love myself.”

What do you think of Riley’s online boutique? Would you shop her closet? Share your thoughts below!

I’m so upset that I didn’t have a chance to order anything yet! I will definitely keep this website on my radar. What a great example for not only young women but women of all shapes, sizes and ages.

Don’t get me wrong, I love Amber Riley and loved watching her in Glee and DWTS. She is clearly a very talented young lady. However, I feel she should be focusing on her health (i.e her weight) instead of launching a clothes range for so-called ‘curvy’ girls. There is a huge difference between being curvy and overweight. Amber is overweight and is basically saying that it’s ok to be that way as long as you love yourself. It is not ok to be overweight and Amber will have health complications later on in life if she is not careful. (Diabetes, heart problems.) We already saw that she had problems with her knees in DWTS. America has a huge obesity problem and having one more famous person say that it’s ok to be overweight is not going to help the situation.

Your opinion doesn't matter..... on

@Angezmoi…..First off Amber had problems with her knees and that had nothing to do with her weight….Seeing that many athletes have that same problem Amber had. And they aren’t bigger. For example Derek Hough himself admitted he had to where knee braces before so… Amber is curvy and a bigger woman. But,she has lost weight fact. If you caught handle that get lost. I’m sure Amber want miss you as a so called fan/hater anyway. If you would’ve educate yourself. Amber Riley never promotes being over weight/obesity. And Amber herself has stated more than once that she has started to live a healthier lifestyle. Whether it’s excising or choice of food she puts in her body. Research does help. Stop assuming things about Amber. The only thing she promotes is love who you are and your self. So called fan. Yeah right….. Worry about yourself!
