Ulla Popken has its roots in Hamelin, Germany, where Johann Popken founded a textile company in 1880. His descendants began operating a baby and maternity store in the 1960s, but became curious when they noticed an unusually large order of maternity clothes. Upon investigation, it was revealed that non-pregnant customers were ordering the clothes because they had trouble finding attractive, youthful clothing in larger sizes. Thus, the company was motivated to evolve into a business specializing in plus-sized apparel. In 1993, Ulla Popken, Ltd. opened as the U.S. division of the company, and over 20 years later, it continues the tradition of providing plus-sized clothing and accessories that are stylish and on-trend. Women enjoy wearing Ulla Popken clothing and feel good about themselves when they do. Ulla Popken is the place to shop for tops, bottoms, sleepwear and swimwear in size 12/14 and up that is both comfortable and fashionable.
