LUXE KURVES? What Makes It So Different?
Over the years the plus-size industry has continued to gain more notice and recognition but despite these advances many people continued to feel like something was missing. With all of the great plus-size publications and resources in the industry there was still a gap that I believe needed to be filled.
In fact, throughout history a kurvy woman was desirable, wanted, admired and a prized possession in society
After being in the industry for over 6 years and a kurvy/plus-size girl my entire life, I always thought and felt like the plus-size woman had been knocked off her throne. I know you might be thinking, “What throne?” Well the current attitudes that are prevalent in society related to size were not present in the past. In fact, throughout history a kurvy woman was desirable, wanted, admired and a prized possession in society. Over the years this reality has changed and the smaller figure women have taken the kurvy woman’s place with the help of the media. It has created a barrier where what is thought to be the ideal body is not a realistic goal for many women.
Growing up my grandmother was the ultimate plus-size/kurvy woman. She was bold, fearless, sassy, beautiful, wanted, and desired. She wore furs and diamonds and was always “dressed to kill” as she would say.
I remember growing up and seeing how she was in love with herself and loved her body. You could not tell her anything! She demanded respect when she entered a room and you could see her confidence 3 miles away.
What has happened to that type of woman?
I believe that she has been lost amongst what the mainstream media thought she should be. She was lost with the skeleton figures on the runway and told she had to be skinny to be beautiful and desired.
We are going to put the KURVY woman back on her THRONE where she belongs and prove that woman of all sizes are beautiful.
I’m here to say BS to all of that. LUXE KURVES has been created to do what MUST be done. We are going to put the KURVY woman back on her THRONE where she belongs and prove that woman of all sizes are beautiful. The real woman was looked at as a goddess, queen, and was worshipped for centuries. A kurvy woman can be classy, elegant and sophisticated. We love entertainment, the arts, culture, music, fashion, traveling, and more!
