My recent visit to New York for New York Fashion Week included attending theCurvycon. I had the time of my life. My favorite part of theCurvycon had to be the Keynote with Chrissy Metz. If you’ve been living under a rock and don’t know who she is well here’s a quick run down.
Chrissy Metz is an actress best known for her role in the NBC show “This Is Us” were she plays Kate Pearson. The “This Is Us” series follows siblings Kate, Kevin and Randall as their lives intertwine as adults. Kate and Kevin were originally part of a triplet pregnancy. Born six weeks early; their biological brother was stillborn. Their parents, Jack and Rebecca, having expected to bring home three babies, decide to adopt another newborn: Randall, a black child born the same day and brought to the same hospital after his biological father abandoned him at a fire station. The episodes weave through the stories of the past and present of the characters, taking place in 1980, 1989–1995, and the present day. This moving drama has tugged at everyone’s heart strings and made Chrissy a household name. Before taking over evening TV Chrissy had smaller roles on My Name Is Earl as Chunk, and American Horror Story: Freak Show as Barbara/Ima Wiggles.
Remember that time folks got rowdy because I wore a dress? The outpouring of love and support from all of you lovely people has not gone unnoticed. I hope that in some small way an unconventional body wearing an unconventional material opened up discussion, hearts and minds. I truly had no idea it would make anyone feel uncomfortable, I just wanted to try something different. All I'm saying, is do YOU, Boo! Wear what you want, love you love and treat people the way you want to be treated❤️ Now that's out of the way, congratulations to all the winners at the @MTV movie and tv awards, especially our boys @miloanthonyventimiglia and @lonniechavis for winning best tear jerker scene from @nbcthisisus! 🎉 Lastly, thank you to the amazing humans who make this all possible!

Chrissy Metz made a splash at the MTV Movie & TV Awards in an oxblood latex dress with ruffled cap sleeves and a pleated skirt by janedoelatex.
While speaking at theCurvycon Chrissy Metz was asked about her different looks and of course the red latex dress she wore to the 2017 MTV Movie & TV Awards came up. The whole world had something to say about that Latex dress. Chrissy Metz responds to critics of her sexy look by simply saying “The Kardashians do it; why can’t I?” You can see Chrissy speaking in depth at theCurvycon on this look and how people responded to it here.
For the record, I wear what I want, when I want. News flash it’s
MY body. #thankstho

I agree with Chrissy. If the Kardashians do it; why can’t I?! I have been a huge fan of this sexy look latex/rubber look dress. The latex dress idea isn’t new. However, modern day vixens like Kim Kardashian and Nicki Minaj had me wanting one so so bad. If I did see them in plus sizes they would either be too costly and if they were affordable they looked like a Halloween costume. That’s until now. Club L via ASOS has given me all the sexy I wanted in a rubber dress at an pocket friendly price.
I love how I felt in my dress. I felt super sexy and confident. I got the bright idea to wear my dress backwards. The zipper gives the front a little more detail. You can see Danielle Brooks of Orange Is The New Black was feeling herself also in this high shine bodycon Club L dress. Danielle is wearing the dress on as intended.
– Wearing size US 20
– My height is 5’0″
Size I normally order 16/18/20 or 2x
This plus-size dress by Club L is made of high shine smooth fabric. There is added stretch for comfort. It has a scoop neck and sleeveless design. The midi length close-cut bodycon fit dress has an exposed zip-back fastening.
