A Zaftig Woman
By Melissa Miller

Beautiful plus-sized Elite model, Melissa Orange, and her sister, Yvonne Kreusch, created A Zaftig Woman, a boutique of bath and body products, makeup, skincare and clothing located in Dayton, Ohio.

Fortunately for us, they opened an online store. Orange and Kreusch make the bath and body products and scent them in a wide array of fruit and foody scents.

Shea Butter Body Pudding
($12.50 for 6oz) is one of their big, zaftig sellers. It contains 20% shea butter and is rich and moisturizing, yet glides on the skin like water to absorb instantly.

The Body Puddings are available in a scrumptious array of scents including Vanilla Cream Cake, Pineapple Grapefruit, Buttercream, Nectar of the Gods, Cotton Candy, Crème Brulée, Lemongrass Sage, Tangy Pear and Ginger Soufflé.

30% Shea Butter Hand Cream
($10 for 4oz) is super moisturizing and soothing for dry hands; it gives L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream a real run for its money for performance and price.

The Shower Gels ($8.50 for 8 oz.) do not contain SLS (sodium laurel sulfate) and are thick and sudsy. I tried the Shower Gel in Lemon Crème and fell in love with the smooth and soft lemony vanilla fragrance; I now understand why this scent has a cult following.

A Zaftig Woman’s new Body Butter ($14 for 4 oz.) is a thick, buttery mix of shea and cocoa butters that leaves the skin satiny soft, without feeling greasy. Try this in Vanilla Cream Cake – you won’t be disappointed.

My new favorite bath treats are Candy Bath Melts ($6.25 for 8 melts), available in Crème Brule, Chocolate Coconut and Chocolate Chip. Loaded with shea and cocoa butters, these fragrant, creamy melts are wonderful for dry skin.

Other best sellers are Shea Butter Lip Balm ($2.50 for .15oz) in Vanilla or Orange, Sugar Scrub ($16 for 16oz) in Vanilla Crème Cake and the new Honey Butter Soufflé Whipped Body Cream ($14 for 4oz) in Lemon Crème.

Scented Soy Candles ($14 for 11oz, $20 for 16oz), Smellie Jellies (jelly jar fresheners, $6), Perfume Roll-ons ($8 for 1/3oz) and Foot Cream ($10 for 4oz) are also available from
