#thesecurves Torrid Pool Party: 2017: A Body Positive Reflection

How many reading this are guilty of not attending a pool party or swim event because of the way you thought you looked or thought how other would see you?  I know I am guilty.  But I am thankful at the same time that I was able to overcome this fear and with the help of curvy campaigns (and swimwear) such as Torrid’s #thesecurves campaign.

As part of the recent social media campaign #thesecurves, Torrid is on the forefront of the body positive movement and the changing paradigm of curvy acceptance.  This hashtag promotes that women are beautiful no matter what they are wearing, whether in a swimsuit or every day wear.

“The TORRID #thesecurves pool party was beyond amazing! I met incredible women and the body positivity was so inspiring! Love your curves ladies!”

-Lindsey (my #insider source in attendance at the party)

The Torrid pool party held in Orange County, CA at the private Monaco mansion brought together women nationwide for one cause, to grow confidence in themselves and others.  The women in attendance at the pool party  were beautiful, curvy, and confident.  Celebrities, influencers, and guests interacted and mingled growing connections.  A few of the guests in attendance included Ashley Nell Tipton, Gabi Gregg, Nicole Byer, Plus size influencers, bloggers, guests, and torrid search model winners.  Thank you Torrid for bringing the body positive movement into the forefront of communities and helping connect communities nationwide through your campaigns.

Next time your invited to that pool party, find yourself a sexy bathing suit and strut your stuff until you feel it.  Beauty and confidence starts from the inside out and all it takes is a try.  I have a pool party this weekend and yes am also nervous, but after seeing these beautiful, confident, curvy women I know that we are all more alike than we are different.  And because of that we must embrace our uniqueness and our curves.

Since I was unable to be in attendance, I had the opportunity, thanks to Lindsey, to gain a few behind the scene selfies with some amazing bloggers and influencer’s she captured there.  Influencers and Bloggers IG handles are below each photo and  follow my amazing friend Lindsey on IG under @southernlindz
