• Net revenues for the second quarter increased 22.1% to $74.7 million, compared to $61.2 million for the second quarter of 2010.
• Store sales rose 29.0% to $64.6 million driven by a comparable-store sales increase of 14.7% and net store unit growth of 11%.

• The Company opened 7 new stores during the second quarter and operated 221 stores as of July 2, 2011.

Allen Weinstein, Body Central's President and CEO, stated: "Our strong second quarter results reflect continued execution of our strategic plan. We delivered on-trend fashion at value prices which enabled us to achieve 15% comparable stores sales growth. New stores continue to perform ahead of our expectations. Looking ahead, we remain focused on expanding our store base, driving comparable store sales growth, growing our direct business and making further progress on key operating initiatives which we believe will enable us to achieve our long term sales and earnings growth objectives."
