As ever I expect there to be a barrage of blogger reviews and photos online so I don't want to talk too much about the day, because I think you can read that anywhere! I have to say though, that the day was much better than I expected, for the first ever one it did great. One thing I would say is that the range of models they used was brilliant - I am sure you'll see in everyone's photos that there were short, tall, all sizes, ages and colours which was fantastic. I felt it was a shame that the largest model was a size 26 I would love to have seen the brands showcasing their items in all of the sizes they sold - IE a size 32. But as I mused over the event yesterday I wondered if there were other 'representations' that were missed which I didn't notice because I was too busy thinking about myself. But overall, the range of models was noticeably varied and fantastic!
The Sense of Community
I joke about attending the Curvy Convention with voyeuristic intention, but it is a little like that. There are not many places you can go where you can see hundreds of women who look just like you! I love that I can lust over dresses and ask people where they got them from, with a strong chance that I will be able to wear it too! Watching catwalks, getting up close and personal with brands and chatting to the people who make and sell you your clothes is fantastic. You can speak to them about what you would like to see and they can tell you about their plans it's brilliant.

I wrote a long soppy post on Facebook last night, but I really want to repeat it here.
