Thanksgiving very well may be the best meal we eat all year. Filled with tradition, a true feast of side dishes, and family (chosen or otherwise), this meal is like no other. And while we love our own traditional dishes, we also love drooling over recipes from other peoples’ tables. Any chance to celebrate taken, we met up with friends of Gwynnie Bee: Darlene of SuitsHeelsCurves, Maddy Jones, Editor of PlusModelMag, Margie Plus, Stephanie Nadia, and Bianca from Brooklyn for a Friendsgiving. Food looking so good you want to lick the screen? Never fear, our ladies have shared the recipe for their personal favorite below. Read on for recipes sure to impress at any feast you attend this year.
Thank you, theCURVYcon 2017! We had a blast attending the third year of this exciting conference, created by Chastity Garner and CeCe Olisa. From shopping to meet-and-greets to panels on body positivity, professional development, and special key-note speaker Chrissy Metz, this two-day event was packed. We loved the lively, supportive, love-fest feeling energy of this conference and we loved meeting you!

The hunt for the perfect bra seems unending. Luckily, we had Curvy Couture join us at our pop up, GB Flatiron, for a trunk show highlighting their collection of great fitting intimates. With experts in the house, we had a few questions! Read on to find the best fitting bra, and a special GB only discount off Curvy Couture.
Gwynnie Bee proudly presents Mary Lambert live! This past Saturday, May 6th, we were pleased to host an open concert at our pop up, GB Flatiron, highlighting this charming artist, performing songs from her new album, “Bold.” Following up outfitting her upcoming new music video, hosting her live performance was a great honor. Read on to see photos from the event as well as watch the Facebook Live of her moving and beautiful performance.
Bringing Plenty by Tracy Reese exclusively to Gwynnie Bee in extended sizing is something to celebrate! And with GB Flatiron (Gwynnie Bee’s first NYC pop-up experience) in full swing, we jumped at the chance to show off the collection live in NYC. Sipping champagne, playing with clothes, and watching lovely ladies rock the runway in the Tracy Reese collection, made for the perfect evening. Read on for a recap of this fun event with a special appearance of Tracy herself!
For special events, what we’re wearing is crucial. But we know, finding the perfect fit can be hard – a fact that is true for everyone – even celebrities. Leslie Jones recently called out designers on Twitter when she struggled to find someone to design a dress for her recent movie premiere, and Christian Siriano stepped up for a jaw-dropping red carpet moment.
When the opportunity to kick off theCURVYcon arose, we jumped at the chance! We love a good party — especially when in honor of a community of women we adore. Hosted by Chastity Garner and CeCe Olisa for the second year in a row, theCURVYcon brings brands, fashionistas, bloggers, and more to “chat curvy, shop curvy, and embrace curvy.” Sounds like our kind of scene! Read on for the inside scoop on our evening of cocktails, photos, dancing, and a surprise flash fashion show.
