I have been shopping at Goddess since they opened, and always marvelled at how great an idea it was. I have been delighted with my purchases.and in fact almost my entire wardrobe has been from Goddess. Awhile back I got an email from another store in Prospect, which also specialized in 14+ size. This was interesting as previously there weren't any plus size resale stores in Connecticut and now here are 2 very close together within the state, and how did they get my name? isn't that strange? When I saw the name of Aura it clicked that this was the woman who used to work at Goddess. When she was there I tried to avoid her as much as possible, as she was IMO trying to sell me clothes that were not my style, and was very vocal about her personal religious beliefs, which was a turn off. On a day that I was in Propect saw the shop and decided to visit. She greeted me and told me how happy she was that I found her. When I inquired as how she came to open the SAME type of store as the one in which she had worked, she avoided my eyes and told me that God had told her it was time to move on... oh boy here we go I thought. So I guess God told her to copy another stores original theme, marketing and to contact their former shoppers !?! How Godly can that be? Another shopper at the time overheard my conversation and commented as she left that she felt bad vibes in this store. I agreed and told her about Goddess in Waterbury and how she will be far happier with the staff and the varied selection of clothes, without the bad vibes. I will continue to patronize and send my friends to Goddess, as they have the best and widest selection of 14 and up clothes in the area, the first is still the best!

It was delightful to find this gem of a store tucked away in Waterbury! Usually people are motivated to write a review when they are disgruntled or ripped off but I am compelled to give praise where its due. I am a freelance writer, resale shopper and proud plus size woman. Work brought me down to Waterbury, my best girlfriend told me if ever in this area to check Goddess Plus size Consignment. I drove to the address listed here and found an empty new plaza, but thank goodness I was equipped with my phone and GPS, after calling them and finding that the empty store was their next move, I made my way to their temporary store on Scott street. Being welcomed upon my entry (always a plus), I looked around and thought I had died and gone to "Big Girl Clothing Heaven" . Normally in a consignment store you have to scrounge around to find your size, but here, everything was color coded and sized.(saving me time and dissapointment) The clothing was displayed beautifully and accessorized to demonstrate how you could wear it in ways you never thought of. By the time I had arrived at the 3rd rack of clothing , my arms were already full! Yes, it's THAT good. The place was fairly crowded with other women, who heard me oooing and ahhing another woman asked me if this was my first time here, because of my comments! That day I spent $125.00 for easily $500.00 worth of clothing, (they take plastic unlike some other placed that are cash only). Thank you Goddess for making me look like a Goddess!
That is how I feel whenever I walk into Goddess, just like family! The employees are GREAT!! I can walk thru the door and I am already being brought clothes to try on. The woman there know my taste in clothes and size. It makes me feel that when they receive new items in that they are thinking of me personally, as to say "oh that would look GREAT on......" The clothes are top notch, neat, organized and in great condition!!! I have been a customer for years and there are days I will stop in just to say hi to the wonderful friends I made. Needless to say I generally NEVER leave empty handed. The prices are more than fair. I have also consigned clothes there too, and it has been a wonderful experience. There is nothing better then getting rid of clothes that do not fit and going to the register with my purchases and having money on my account. As I continue to lose weight I will still shop at Goddess, not only to see the WONDERFUL staff but the shoes, purses, jewelry, etc that they sell. I can NOT recommend Goddess enough, I tell EVERYONE I know about it, regardless of size, plus or not you will purchase something there. There is ALWAYS something "to good" to purchase and not "let get away"!!!!!
I went by my favorite store, Goddess Consigment the other day and couldn't believe that my mecca for shopping was gone. But then, I was going to get pizza from Ninos yesterday, and happened to see the sign for Goddess!! Finally!! I was so surprised and delighted to see that my friend Patty and all her Goddess glory with her beautiful clothes and (more!!) beautiful jewelry. She, as usual, rememberd me and greeted me by name and asked how I was. The store, even though disapointingly not as big as the old one, was set up so pretty, I felt like I was at an upscale boutique rather than a consignment shop. Patty and her salesgirl Amy were both attentive and helpful and I found 3 fabulous new outfits. The clothes are always in such great condition whenever I have gone to Goddess, I have never felt like I was buying "used" clothes, and my wallet always thanks me afterwards. I'm so thankful that my store hasn't gone for good- I think that it's great to have such a low cost alternative that is close by, that we more ample ladies can go to shop. Keep up the good work Patty, I will always be a Goddess customer!
As the title indicates that is how I felt when I first walked through the Goddess's Door. Not only was I overwhelmed with the quality and quantity of clothing but by the Staff themselves. They all had SMILES and were laughing and some singing and I just instantly relaxed and joined IN! The clothes are in perfect condition, they go according to color and size and each has it's own rack, so this makes it easy to shop. They also have Four extra large dressing rooms which is unheard of in a consignment shop usually I feel so uncomfortable since other consignment shops dressing rooms are small and the curtains do not close all the way and they are in front of everything at least at the Goddess they are down in the back and out of the way. And the staff always checks to see how you are doing and offer their honest advice which again is unheard of usually it's it looks great and you get home and realzie it doesn't. I can go on and on but I might run out of room. I have been a consignment shopper for YEARS and the Goddess is MY CLOUD NINE as it is my mothers and my friends.
I had weight loss surgery 3 years ago , and have been an avid &amp;quot;Goddess Fan&amp;quot;. Due to my weight loss, I had lots of pretty clothes that I tried to tag sale, but didn't sell much. I found Goddess Plus, and even though I live in Middletown it was worth the trip to Waterbury. This shop only takes new and perfect items, so you don;t have to be afriad to try on.( some shops have dirty and worn out stuff) They took the majority of my clothing, and I made in total about $600.00 which was more than I expected! As my weight decreased I purchased smaller sizes there without breaking my budget .Now I am a size 16, and still can find very reasonalbly priced clothing at the Goddess. They have new unique necklaces, earrings and purses, which I always end up buying something, and I would recommend them to any plus size lady who loves a bargain!
I just have to say that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Goddess store!! I can ALWAYS find great quality clothing, and a lot of the items are brand new!! The sales staff is wonderful, especially Roxanne who is always so helpful. She helped me find a beautiful dress for an evening wedding and she put together 4 other outfits for me. I spent about $130 for 5 outfits!! That would NEVER happen in a "regular" store. I recommend this store to all of my plus size sisters!! This is a great store and you will most always find what you are looking for plus more. I have a weekly addiction to this store. I LOVE IT!
I have shopped at goddess for many years, my aunt introduced me to this store about 4 years ago and this is the only place i faithfully buy my clothes. the clothes are seasonable all year round. and the quality and quantity of clothing in this store is truely remarkable. It's amazing this store is truely one of a kind, Name brands for affordable prices, not to mention the staff! they are AMAZING, always helpfull, they are simply delightful. it isn't just any old consignment store, it's so much more. I would recomend godess consignment to anyone. i love it!
I've shopped and consigned at Goddess for years. The staff is friendly, helpful and they're great at putting together outfits. I'm a 4x and they always have something in my size, dreses and blouses especially, which can be hard to find. The dressing rooms are big and there is plenty of room between the displays and rounders. I highly recommend Goddess for their great prices and fun atmosphere - the store is beautiful and it's a relief to shop with other women of size without concern for bigotry, snickering, and negative comments.
My sister, Lisa D. passed away. She was a wonderful woman and deserved a beautiful dress to be laid to rest in. My wife daughters and friends searched for days to find something that Lisa would have loved wearing. They were lucky enough to remember this store and found a dress that Lisa would have picked out for herself. My family explained to us that Patricia the owner of Goddess remembered my sister and was kind enough to GIVE Lisa this dress. We cannot thank Goddess enough for this kindness. May God bless this store. Robert N.
