Being Curvy or plus size is something which has been shunned up on in the fashion world for a long time however, recently the tides have been changing. Since 2015 the curve fashion festival has been changing this celebrating all things curvy and plus size. Technically, I can just fit in some the plus sizes ranges due to big boobs and a mum tum the joys of what pregnancy has left me with. As most of them do start around a size 14 which is what I currently am.
The change in my body going from been really slim and athletic to curvy is something which I will admit I struggled with and still do to this day 3 years on. Events like the curve fashion festival show women who are not usually the kind of people who you would find walking the cat walk of London Fashion week instead normal every day women like you and I what looks good. I would love to attend the curve fashion festival because I feel like it would give me the confidence maybe to wear something which is a bit out of the norm for me. Improving my confidence and body positivisy can only be a good thing surely.
If you have not heard of the curve fashion festival previously let me to you a little bit about it.This year it is been held on the 17th November 2018 at St George’s Hall, Liverpool. There are catwalk shows, celeb meet and greets, Q & A’s, a V.I.P area, loads of celebrities including this year Gemma Collins and influencers, the opportunity to shop all your favourite brands.
Instead of been limited to a couple of stores which you may find stock plus size fashion on the high street there is a wide range Missguided, Pretty Little Thing, Boohoo, New Look, River Island, Yours Clothing, Marks & Spencer, and Matalan and Debenhams who are focusing on beauty this year. There is going to be a chance to purchase items from all of these brands so make sure you take some money because for sure you are going to want to purchase some of the amazing clothes on offer.
On the stage it has been confirmed that there is going to be sessions as well for example one of them is been ran by Debenhams who are a sponsor this year they are having How to sessions. As well as bra fittings and we all know that it is so important to be wearing the correct size bra, and been measured is something which we should all do in order not to have a bad back in the future.
