Recap: Did You Miss This Year’s Golden Confidence Plus Size Pool Party?

Golden Confidence Plus Size Pool Party

Swimsuit season has officially begun with the Golden Confidence Pool Party in NYC!

The sold-out event took place on Saturday, June 11th and it was a must-attend event. PLUS Model Magazine was in the building as the media sponsor and reporting on location from the event.

Last year, when plus size fashion blogger Essie Golden first announced this event, now in its second year, she had no idea how truly popular and historic this event would be. For two years in a row, the event sold out quickly. It has become not just a plus size event. It became an event for ALL bodies of ALL sizes to come out, in their most fabulous and stylish swim attire and have an amazing time.

Sponsors included Ashley Stewart, Lane Bryant, Rebdolls, Macy’s, City ChicMonif C. and Ciroc. This event was the perfect lead-in to Full Figured Fashion Week that kicked off on Sunday, June 12.

PMM Editor-in-Chief Madeline Jones was at the pool party, looking gorgeous in a head-to-toe look from Simply Be.

In terms of fashion, attendees were rocking beautiful and stylish two-pieces worn with fabulous cover-ups in vibrant colors and prints. When it came to hairstyles, we spied lots of natural curls, beachy waves, braids and hair flowing all over the room. We were loving all the statement necklaces and jewelry we saw, as well as, all the chic turbans, headbands and body chains. These beauties went all out for this event and the confidence was contagious.
