The popularity of plus size swimwear has soared in recent years as women have begun to embrace their bodies in greater numbers.


Golden, creator of the empowering hashtag movement #GoldenConfidence, has partnered with Rue 107 and Monif C. to offer women in the New York City area, a celebration of curves. The event promises to bring together women of all shapes and sizes as they showcase their unique sense of style at the rooftop pool at the Holiday Inn in New York City.

“I believe in celebrating women, especially plus size women. We’re often considered the undesired ones and are constantly criticized for just existing. This party is about celebrating every single flaw, curve, bump and lump. This year, this is the first I’ve seen so many plus size women become excited for a season we would normally dread. We are buying multiple swimsuits and showing off our curves like never before. I wanted a place where we can all come together and show off our awesome swimsuits while celebrating and supporting each other. That’s what Golden Confidence is about. Celebrating yourself and letting your confidence shine through every outfit”, says Essie Golden.


PLUS Model Magazine is excited to be the media sponsor for this event and will be joining this plus positive movement as NYC gets ready to make plus-size history.

“Not only will this event be the first of its kind, but it’s an event where women can come and feel free of judgment. We are all plus-size and loving our bodies, period!” says PLUS Model Magazine Editor-in-Chief Madeline Jones.

The Golden Confidence pool party will take place on June 13th, 2015 at the Holiday Inn New York City, 440 W 57th Street from 7pm to 11pm.
