Plus Size Flashmob (Part 2)

Hello everyone! Apologies for the unintended hiatus - life has been very busy since I returned to London and started my second year of university. Anyway, enough about that! You may recall that, back in August, I posted about a plus size flashmob happening on 1 September - I attended the event and wanted to share my experience with you. I have waited a little longer than I intended as I wanted to share the video footage which was taken on the day.

Firstly, I'd like to thank Anita Bellamy of Plus Confidence In You for organising, Symone Woods for filming and Chris Harvey for photographing the event, as well as everyone that participated.

My experience of the flashmob was that it was an excellent opportunity to meet other plus size and likeminded women, as well as to show the general public that we are comfortable in the skin we're in. It was both exhilirating and confidence building - I left feeling sexy and proud.

I hope that there will be more opportunities like this in the future...and perhaps one day we can take on Trafalgar Square! If you'd like to read more about Plus Confidence In You and the story behind the flashmob, read my previous post or check out the Facebook page.
