Curvy Girl Lingerie Shows Women are Sexy at Any Size

San Jose, CA (October 14, 2014) – Curvy Girl Lingerie, the first plus-size lingerie store in the country, is showing women that they can be sexy at any size through its brand new Cover Girl Photo Project. Instead of photos of professional models, Curvy Girl will post pictures of ‘regular’ women in their lingerie, giving website visitors and social media followers genuine examples of curvy beauty, in addition to more realistic representations of how the store’s merchandise may look on them. At least a dozen of the photos will also be used to create an exclusive ‘Sexy at Any Size’ calendar.

“We want to have ALL women represented on our website,” explained Curvy Girl’s owner, Chrystal Bougon. “We will be doing MANY more photo shoots with many more curvy women; we want to see ALL races, ethnicity, age and abilities represented on our website and our social media properties.”

Bougon strongly believes that all bodies are beautiful, and her campaign to embrace sexy at any size is empowering other women. Since beginning this campaign, she’s received feedback from plus-size women excited ‘regular’ models that look just like them are finally proving you can be large and beautiful, and that Curvy Girl is showing everyone that sexy women come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes.

“I think it’s HIGH TIME the world sees how beautiful and desirable fat, curvy women are Continue reading

Dating While Fat : Adventures in Online Dating

Dating While Fat

Well, I never really thought I would write this blog. Been doing the online dating thing for about 3 months now. Something happened via email yesterday morning that made me sort of snap! (I turned down a person for a date. Blasphemy. Fat Girls DO NOT turn down dates, ya know. I mean, we are so desperate and all. Why would I turn him down?) I almost wrote it all and sent it out last night, but I decided I need to cool off first. This was after a very rude string of back and forth emails with someone very hate filled that I turned down for a date. I decided to cool down and wait 24 hours before I blurted it all out here. I am getting so mature in my old age.

So, for starters, I have had two of the most amazing men in my life and two wonderful long term relationships in my life;  I count myself super grateful and blessed. I loved these men to pieces and they loved me back. Total unconditional love and everyone should be loved as well as I have been loved.  Truly amazing men who were great friends, fantastic supporters of mine and some of my best cheerleaders for all of my crazy business ideas. Men that treated me like a goddess and that always made me feel beautiful and sexy. Just so blessed in that department so I have no complaints.

And, for the most part, the online dating adventure has been exactly that. It’s been a really wonderful adventure. I have gone on like 6 “first dates” so far.  And, I’ve gone on a few 2nd and 3rd dates.  I have also had to have that awkward discussion with a couple of them ( “You’re really great. Just not for me” ) and a few of them just sort of drifted off into the never never land that is dating. But, there have been a few interactions that have gone really really bad. I mean, like really bad. As in “you fat bitch” and one that I reported to a friend of mine (who is a San Jose PD Continue reading
