One way to curvy?

I am an avid Instagrammer (follow me @girlsofplenty).  And trust me, if you are still questioning whether or not to accept and love your curves, the abundance of curvy girls flouncing about on Instagram will certainly convince you otherwise.  I am so proud that curvy women of all ages have started a movement to love their bodies.  But as a mature woman who is in the center of the curvy girl revolution, I wonder... does loving one's curves mean that you can only wear body conscious offerings?  If you have followed the blog, you know that I love a big, voluminous shirt, a tent dress, or any other excess of fabric.
This day, I decided to wear the "uniform" of curvy bloggers which include a body-conscious dress and high heels.  Because I am obsessed with black, opaque tights, I had to add them.  This of course may mean that I am not confident of my curves, but nothing is farther from the truth.  Add a little faux leather jacket and I feel curvy blogger complete. Now, I feel as sexy as I always feel, tight clothes be damned.  But I have to admit, my true sexiness is often on display when I am wearing my "big" clothes.  It is then, that I feel most like myself.  Am I trying to cover my curves?  Absolutely not. Am I proud of my curves? Absolutely.  Will I wear more items like this? Ummmm...Don't hold your breath.

  2. I totally agree with you on this. There shouldn't be an expectation on what curvy/plus size bloggers wear - as long as you're complimenting your figure in a comfortable wear then there should be a celebration of different looks.

    I wrote a blog post on this: http://bit.ly/WDjbe1 would love to hear your thoughts on it :)
