The Curvy Revolution: Day 2

Day 2 of The Curvy Revolution was all about meeting the vendors at the Expo. I know there are so many amazing products and brands out there for the curvy woman.

I even had the opportunity to get a free bra fitting by Lane Bryant. I found out I’ve been wearing the wrong bra size! What? No wonder I’ve always been uncomfortable wearing under wire bras. Now, I know my correct size and my “girls” will be a lot happier. Maybe I’ll even buy the new Sateen Convertible Plunge Bra. Go get your free fitting today!!

Here’s what I wore:

Sweater: TJ Maxx
Tunic: Abrstract Print Twist Neck Tunic (courtesy of Lane Bryant)
Leggings: Sejour (Nordstrom)
Boots: Dollhouse
Bracelets: Courtesy of Lane Bryant

I got a lot of compliments on the tunic. I love the colors and once again the soft material. Chic and comfy! I know I’ll get a lot of wear out of it. I also wore my favorite leggings by Sejour, they are amazing. Now, let me tell you about the boots. They are very nice to look at but NOT AT ALL made for comfort. I wore them all day and I did a lot of walking; today my legs are aching and my feet hurt. I definitely need some cushioning in there.

Back to the vendors…I met a lot of inspiring curvy women yesterday. I bought a vintage top from Kori at, she has an amazing selection of vintage pieces. Amanda Bennett of came all the way from Australia to show her amazing line of wide calf boots. FYI…they are made from the same leather Prada uses. You’ll see them on Curves and Chaos pretty soon.

I picked up a few samples of PSST (Put Shorts Straight Today). I was so in love with this product. It’s a very simple and convenient way to stop your shorts from bunching up between your legs. I love it!!

The women from Curvy Divas Rock were so cute! I bought one of their tees (below) and I can’t wait to wear it. Because duhhhh…we do rock! I honestly loved meeting each and every person yesterday, it show the passion they have for the curvy community. Very very inspiring!!
