Last week I attended the #PlusIsEqual event hosted by Lane Bryant. For those that are not familiar with the campaign it is all about more inclusiveness in fashion. In America, the average woman is a size 14 or greater, but most clothing stores do not carry sizes greater than a 16. Lane Bryant made it their mission to not only shed light on this, but to tell the world that being plus is nothing to be ashamed of. They shot a great campaign with gorgeous women showing off their curves. What better way to kick off the campaign but to have an event in the middle of Times Square in the middle of the day.
Being in Times Square at noon is the biggest tourist trap one can be in, but it was worth it. There were tons of gorgeous women of all shapes and sizes coming together. After being entertained by the Pretty Big Movement dance troupe, and the marching band lead by Wendy Williams and Brad Goreski we went back to the Herald Square store for some champagne and pictures.
I had a blast, it was great meeting some bloggers in town for NYFW, meeting new people and just having fun. I got to meet Amanda Bingson, and she is the dopest. When you see people in magazines and award shows, they look so glam and fab, you forget at times we are just women. We all are the same. We have our strengths and weaknesses and we are beautiful.
If you head to the Plus Is Equal site, you can see all of the advertisements, read up on some interesting facts, and you can create your own billboard like I did. Muah lovers!!
