So You Want To Be A Curvy Model?


I first learned about NYC Full Figured Fashion Week from an article in The New Yorker magazine last fall.  I’m a bit embarrassed to admit that this event had evaded my radar for several years even though it was happening in my own backyard; they even have a pretty awesome website.  In fact, this year, FFFW will be taking place from June 14th – 20th, and yours truly will hopefully attend as a blogger, but unfortunately not as a runway model (more on that later).  In fact, I was fortunate enough to meet Gwen Devoe, the creator of FFFW at a meetup in NYC where we discussed the upcoming events, her background and our Virgo connection.  I love everything about FFFW and how it shares Dressing Room 8’s mission of empowering curvy and full-figured women through fashion.

Shape Wear Guide for the Curvy Girl


There’s nothing like comfortable shape wear that makes you feel and look sexy in whatever you slip into. But as we all know, it can be a bit difficult to find the right match.

Here are a few of my favorite pieces that have worked wonders for me depending on what I was trying to achieve.


Short Wonder Shaper Plus by Co’coon #4500

I like this one for lifting the bust and backside while minimizing the waist.  This one also does great minimizing back bulge while helping with posture.  Overall a very versatile choice!
