I have a huge long list of things I've ben meaning to write about (trip to England, Queer Camp, the garden, life, whatnot) but... screw it, I'm just going to write about today.

Today I went with a friend to a plus-size lingerie fashion show. It was FABULOUS!

The models were mostly regular people/friends of the owner, but confident and WOW! Confidence is sexy! I'm not always the best at body acceptance, and the kind of lingerie they were showing wasn't the sort of thing I would wear usually, but it was just a fantastic experience. Almost every woman there was plus size, and almost all of them were dressed up, well put together, gorgeous women. Women who know their size, know their shape, and work with it rather than against it.

Also, the models were all ages = probably 20something to 50something. It was lovely to see that being sexy and sassy isn't limited to just the young and beautiful.

And everything on the website is shown ON A PLUS SIZE BODY - those of you my size know how rare that is! Usually they show a picture of the size 5 model and just list that it goes up to bigger numbers. :P This way you can see how it looks with a belly and big thighs - yay!

I feel so sexy and bold and brave and strong. I'm definitely going back to the shop when it's less crowded - at the very least, I want some of the fishnet stockings with rhinestones up the backseam! :)

Those fishnets are fab, and yeah, that's more body confidence than I can usually lay claim to. Although I have my moments!

I've been feeling pretty great lately - especially due to the new bras in the next post. Nothing boosts my mood like sassy undies. ;) I can't wait to go back and get those stockings....

The fishnets are cool.
I love women who are confident enough to pull of their style. Oddly enough, hubby and I were discussing something very similar yesterday. There was an AfAm woman wearing a tight skirt over belly and she was not skinny. Hubby said he didn't know how she could wear that (since it was Sunday we guessed she'd been to church), and I said that she's comfortable in her own skin. Many AfAm women are. Doesn't always mean they look good or should wear what they are (think 'people of walmart'), but she was rocking it and I had to respect her for that.

I get the impression many cultures that are non-white are a lot more flexible in what is accepted as attractive, wider ranges of ages and body shapes. I think you're onto something, and it's all about confidence. :)

And as we both know, confidence is sexy!

Oh yes indeed!

Glad you had such a marvellous time.
