365 New Orleans: By YOU Belles

You know all those Louisiana themed shirts that only fit a size small? Lafitte resident Tanya Fazende was tired of hearing people say things like “I feel like a 5 lb boudin stuffed into a vienna sausage casing” or “I look like a busted can of biscuits” when they talked of all the cute shirts for sale.

By YOU Belles was created for people of all sizes in mind. She aims to give you all the satisfaction of being state proud as well as feeling good in your own skin. It’s the “styles you never knew you wanted in the sizes you’ve always needed.”



1. What products and services do you offer? 

We are a t-shirt company that found a demographic that was being overlooked by other shops. People LOVE sporting their New Orleans and Louisiana pride, but there were no shirts for the older and larger crowd. We filled that gap by designing shirts that filled that gap.

By You Belles is all inclusive. We have shirts for all demographics and sizes!


2. How long have you been in business? 

Officially in January of 2019. We started planning it out in the summer of 2018.


3. How do people find you online? 

byyoubelles.com, Facebook, Instagram @byyoubelles and on Etsy!


4. What is lesser known about your business that you wish more people knew? 

Our all-inclusive sizes come at no extra charge! Any sizes from small to 5X – they are all the same price!


5. Lagniappe Info. 

Currently we are all online, but we hope for a brick and mortar store to come soon!

We will be at the St. Anthony’s Blessing of the Fleet Festival selling our shirts from May 3rd-5th, 2019.


Find By YOU Belles at a festival near you! Check out their Etsy page for purchasing a shirt!
