Where the World Gathers to Celebrate Every Day

NATIONAL CURVES DAY- Second Wednesday in October

NATIONAL CURVES DAY- Second Wednesday in October


National Curves Day on the second Wednesday in October recognizes plus-sized women and men all across the country.

Its launch in 2015 was celebrated as year one and the groundwork commenced over 100 weeks prior via social media platforms. These efforts to stop body-shaming coexisted with encouraging women to embrace all things plus positive. As the movement grew, so did the urge and desire to empower men who faced challenges battling society’s norms. In 2017, the event became COED (inclusive) and the organization’s mission of Embrace.Encourage.Empower. attained equal purpose.

Initially centered around fashion, the day encompasses so much more. Also, National Curves Day is in the community 365 days through collaborations. Its global ambassadors are promoting, participating in, and hosting all things plus: from fun sip and shops, empowerment panels, to health and wellness tips and classes. The annual celebration kicks off with a meet and greet introducing the everyday curvy bombshell and dapper bomber to industry influencers from diverse backgrounds of employment and stature. The events drive confidence and self-love with an artistic twist.

The pinnacle of these events is the Annual Honors & Fashion Gala, officially registered as #TheMetofPlus. The Honors and Fashion Gala highlights fashion, diversity, and confidence. The event also offers thanks to industry innovators and powerhouses for their contribution to diversity. Attendance is highly encouraged as the experience can’t be re-lived through recap alone.

Expect a fashion, beauty, wellness, fitness, networking, and branding experience; it’s something for everyone! Guests include top designers, celebrity models, bloggers, editors, media insiders, and +influencers from across the globe.
