This was and still is my message…so I never considered that sharing this message now — a few sizes smaller — would alienate some of the people I’ve connected to the most. This was like a dagger to my heart — did my message ever truly matter? Or was I just another face wearing nice clothes? 💔
There’s this myth that plus size bodies shouldn’t wear bright colors, as it brings unnecessary attention to our bodies. I definitely fell victim to this way of thinking, that I am big enough, I don’t need any added attention. However, I’ve learned that this couldn’t be any further from the truth!
1000’s of plus size women flock to New York City every year to attend theCURVYcon, a 3 day convention celebrating curvy bodies. I just got back from attending for the third year, learn more about my experience.
