So grateful to all of our sponsors at this year’s 2017 Shamelessly Sexy Curvy Girl Lingerie Fashion Show. Here is the link to the video if you would like to see our Live Stream we aired from our Curvy Girl Page . It was a magical day and we have been high as a kite from all of the Body Love, Fat Acceptance and all of the love in the room.
We gave away goody pages to all of our models, vendors and guests and those little Curvy Girl Make Up bags included $200 off coupons from Big Fig Matress along with their Big Fig Jam, nail files from Coquette, Screaming O Climax Cream and Body Glide Samples from Body Glide. The goody bags were super adorable. We also had some samples from Thigh Society that two of our models wore in our fashion show under their lingerie. (We had some of the anti-chafing shorts from Thigh Society.) Do you feel a theme?
I have had a sample of the Body Glide for about two weeks now and my two favorite ways to use it is under my breasts before I put my bra on (for the underwire rubbing) and as chapstick. Cured my chapped lips overnight! But, most people use it for inner thighs, under arm chafing, heel/shoe blister abatement and saddle sores for people who spend a lot of time on their bicycles.
We gave it to our guests, models and vendors to test out. Often times, for women with no thigh gap (aka: MOST HUMAN WOMEN) we sometimes suffer from CHUB RUB. So, we knew this would be a target rich environment for these samples from our sponsor Body Glide. The glide goes on in a way that does not feel wet or goopy. It is plant based which likely explains how it repaired my chapped lips so quickly. (Went to sleep with it on. Woke up lips that were no longer chapped!) I do not wear a lot of dresses, except around the house, so I have not really put the chub rub to an intense test, but I do love it under my breasts before or after I put my bra on so my bra does not irritate or chafe my under boob. (Under boob is in ya know. I gotta keep that area soft!) But, truly, it has made a big difference for me under my breasts. I wear a 48 DD – so these breasts and bra are SERIOUS.
The Big Fig $200 off coupons were a big hit, too. Maybe next year we will have a sample of the bed at our fashion show. Can you imagine 250 sexy, rad fatties trying to test out the bed in one afternoon? The photo ops would be epic!
Who needs a step and repeat when you have a mattress to frolic on? Next fashion show for sure. Big Fig makes a mattress for the “Bigger Figure” and they have a great hashtag #getfiggywithit ! I have heard from some of my friends that have tried the mattress (Fat Girl Flow, Chubstr, Ready to Stare, The Curvy Fashionista, Fearlessly Just Me) that the love the mattress . I hope some of you try it out so we can get some more input. Be sure to use the code CURVYGIRL for $200 off when you buy one.
I snagged this from the Big Fig Mattress Website about what makes Big Fig’s high density foam mattress unique:
“A reoccurring issue among bigger figure sleepers is mattress sag – those uncomfortable holes or impressions that develop in the surface of the mattress over time. The cause for mattress sag lies in the quality and density of the foam layers.
The Big Fig Mattress is constructed with 3 inches of high-density foam cushioning, with a minimum density of 1.8 pcf (pounds per cubic foot). That’s over 50% denser than the foam in a standard innerspring mattress.”
I love that so many companies are finally taking larger bodies into consideration. I mean, I do say this a lot: “Fat bodies have been around since the dawn of time and we are not going anywhere.” We make up 67% of the population. It is time that brands and industries start catering to us!
Between our lingerie sponsors like Coquette, Intimate Attitudes, the anti-chafing shorts from Thigh Society, the Body Glide and Big Fig – this is just the tip of the iceberg friends. There are so many other needs for our population that are not being met. I am excited that things are finally changing for the better for those of us who exist in a larger body.

Thanks a million to all of our sponsors. We look forward to working with you again in the future.
