A Little About Me:
My name is Jerae Broughton. I’m originally from Charleston, SC and I currently live in sunny San Diego, CA with my husband. I’m a Golden Girls SUPER FAN and I enjoy online shopping with coupons LOL. I started my blog Curvyology around 2 years ago in the hopes of inspiring other plus size women to love their bodies through fashion.
Curvyology Prom Mission:
Over the years I’ve heard numerous horror stories from other plus size women about their prom experience. Not being able to find a dress, not having a date, being made fun of at the prom, or just not wanting to go are just a few of the stories I’ve heard. The mission for the Curvyology Prom is to give people that second chance. This prom is going to be a night of redemption for a lot of my fabulous girls and guys. For all the people who didn’t have a great experience at prom, people who didn’t attend but wanted to, or for the people who had a blast at their prom this is your chance to do it over and create some beautiful new memories. WE ARE GOING TO HAVE AN EPIC NIGHT.
My Prom Experience:
My prom experience wasn’t the best and not so much because of the events of the night but how I felt about myself at the time. I went with the guy I was dating at the time. We went to dinner, and had his step dad be our chauffeur. It was honestly really cute! But I HATED MY DRESS! That night I felt so insecure and uncomfortable in my dress. I had a basic black strapless floor length gown with black ballet slippers (not mad about the slippers that was a genius idea my mom had) but I was in a room full of girls with sequin dresses, dresses with splits, backless gowns, everything. Back in 2006 when I went to prom companies weren’t checking for plus size women (I was a 22 at the time) and there was not a huge array of dress for me to choose from. It was basically bridesmaid to mother of the bride type dresses. To top it off I had a major headache from the corset I was strapped in to.
I was 16 at the time and no matter how much my family and friends told me I was beautiful, I really didn’t realize how beautiful I was inside or out. Also at the time social media wasn’t anywhere as big as it is now (all we had was myspace) and finding a plus size women that embraced themselves wasn’t at the tip of my fingers like now days. Going through some old photos while creating the idea for the prom, I realized I looked perfectly fine that night. I was just a little girl that wasn’t comfortable with herself. The years have passed and I am now a grown woman who loves every inch of herself. And like winter, my redemption is coming…
