Well, after months of hard work and planning, the Curvy Lingerie Shopping Soiree
is finally here!!! I couldn't be more excited! After years of hosting intimate (i.e., small) events featuring a single retailer - my girl, Precious Williams
of Curvy Girlz Lingerie
- I've taken the plunge to expand to a larger event featuring multiple plus-size retailers as well as a relationship panel to help you take your sexy to the next level!
Still not sure if you want to come out for all the fun? Well, here are FIVE reasons why you can't miss this year's Curvy Lingerie Shopping Soiree!
1. You get to touch, feel, and hold the product before you decide to buy!
One of the major complaints for most plus-size shoppers is the inability to shop in person at major retailers. Unlike our slimmer sisters who have the opportunity to try on clothes and get a sense of fit, texture, color, etc., very often we are relegated to online offerings only. This is especially true for intimate apparel. However, with retailers like HipsandCurves.com
and Le Bustiere Boutique
on hand, you will have the chance to touch, feel, and see products before plunking down your hard-earned money. (Oh and did I mention that Hips and Curves will be offering a special discount exclusively at the event?)
2. Get your girls right.
Bra fit and celebrity stylist Karima Renee
will offer a full-length presentation about how to achieve your best look through the proper foundation garments. You can book an appointment with her right at the event! I don't know about you, but if she's good enough to work with Jazmine Sullivan, Chrisette Michele, Lane Bryant, and Vh1
, she's good enough for me!
3. Real talk about relationships.
I don't know about you, but one thing I cannot stand is one-sided relationship advice. Every time I go to a panel or forum on dating and relating, it's either a group of women spouting off what they think
men want or a group of men berating the ladies for what they're not
doing. Oh and let's not forget the folks who have been married for forever and a day who have NO idea what it's like here out in these streets today. Nope. Can't do it. And I won't do it. That's why my Curvy Relationship Panel is featuring a cross-section of experts - singles, married, men, and women - to give a diverse perspective on real
issues when it comes to dating, mating, and relating for plus-size ladies. Oh, and did I mention that each of the panelists is offering a special gift for all attendees?
3. Gift bags, door prizes, and dessert!
Everybody loves gifts, right? All guests will receive a gift bag featuring loads of goodies, including coupons from a few retailers who weren't able to participate in the event in person. Also, every guest will have the opportunity to win door prizes like some Curvy Girlz Lingerie
, a bridal gift bag from Pretty Pear Bride magazine
or Secret VII
- a sexy board game for you and your boo! There will also be a complimentary dessert bar with lots of yummy sweets!
Who doesn't love lingerie?
I don't know about you, but there's nothing like slipping into a silky nightgown at the end of a stressful day. And no, I don't have a significant other at the moment. But it's nice to just wrap myself up in that little piece of luxury. And, I cannot tell you how much wearing the *right* bra has enhanced my entire wardrobe. (Seriously, I look like I've lost 10 pounds due to the lift my bras gives me.) My clothes fit better and I feel more confident because I know that I've got the right garments on underneath. These are just a few of the reasons I love lingerie. Come share the love by coming out to the shopping soiree this Saturday!!!
