About

CurvyGirl Network is a non profit entity of The Curvy Express empowering curvy women to be self-confident and body positive through fashion and style. We host free fashion workshops teaching the importance of defining your style and owning it in everyday life. Our mission is to create CurvyGirl connections to empower plus-size women to be self-confident and body positive.

The workshops are currently offered in the North, West, and South Chicago where our guest speakers include small business owners, boutique owners, and fashion bloggers. We discuss with plus-size women the importance of style, owning who they are, and using those tools to build self-confidence, which in turn builds self-esteem.

Majority of our topics will include a makeup segment because beauty is style. Catch us on a great day and receive a small gift bag during our workshops that may include, but are not limited to product samples, such as jewelry, gift cards, makeup samples and other items that may be beneficial to you– sometimes even clothes!

If that’s not enough to convince you to join us, let me say that we have partnered with Breatkthrough Ministries to host our own curvy (and not so curvy) clothing drives as well as other events that may include fashion shows with donated clothes and spa days for the women of the shelter. Whether you would like to give items or receive them, you are always welcome. Come be a part of something special in Chicago!

Last but not least, because we love you so much and want to stay in touch with you, I present to your our FREE CurvyGirl Network Group where we post and attend events together as well as post opportunities for plus-size women interested in the fashion and beauty industry. Our group currently has over 100 members and growing. We have created a curvy fashion sisterhood to help support and uplift those in need.  We would most certainly love to have your presence!

We encourage you to join us in making a difference in Chicago and we get to do it the best way– through fashion and philanthropy!
