Hey Curvy Cutie!

Another day, another post filled with great news about the TCFStyle Expo! By now, you should see the direction that we are going in and that we meant it when we stated that this year’s TCFStyle Expo would be bigger and better. More shopping options, more brand involved and more information for our industry’s top influencers.

As a plus size woman I know that we have all struggled about loving our curves. I also know that society views us as the”ugly ducklings” because of our size but that is not our truth. It is important that women understand that your size says nothing about who you are, unless you’re buying clothes. We have to learn to have the conversations needed to teach other plus size women to dismiss society’s beauty standards and embrace ourselves for the beautiful women we are- unapologetically.
