  • Tonya - I was so glad TLC came up with this show. I’m not sure what happened to SYTTD: Big Bliss, but I was all about that show until it disappeared. So on Twitter, I was one of many who asked TLC to please make this show work! There is an audience for this show. As for the show itself, it went by in such a blur, I had to watch the repeat. I enjoyed learning more about the owners of Curvy Couture. As sisters, they have a great natural chemistry that probably doesn’t take much scriptwriting to capture. I’m looking forward to watching this show each week and plan to run my mouth about it to all my plus-sized friends. Now I know where I’m headed when it’s time for me to buy a wedding dress!

    And thank you so much, Pretty Pear Bride, for all you do and for the constant encouragement for plus-size women, even those of us who are not yet brides!ReplyCancel

    • Shafonne Myers {Editor-in-Chief} - Tonya thanks so much for the encouraging words and for taking the time to stop by and leave a comment. We appreciate that so much! I know we watched the repeat too because we were so busy chatting with everyone during the show that we didn’t really take it all in. We are beyond excited about the show too, it’s so good to have such a positive and encouraging breath of fresh air on TV for us plus size women and especially in bridal! Don’t forget to join us while we chat during the show, follow the hashtags #curvybrides and #ppbcurvybridesReplyCancel
