The fun never stops when you’re setting up a swap!

Happy Hump Day Bold Babes!

One thing we’re super sensitive to (and always have been) is the plus size clothing struggle! From finding the right size to finding the right style, it’s a constant challenge to find clothes to fit every budget. We know this and so do you!

“Shopping for plus size clothing is frustrating for so many reasons,” says Alyssa Roensch of Bold Magazine. “And for women on a budget, popular name brands like Torrid, Maurices, and Lane Bryant are way too expensive.”

That’s why we LOVE, LOVE, LOVE our friend Emily Treischel and her totally bold babes at Big, Beautiful, and Broke! The ladies of BB&B have broken the mold, left their home in Reno, and are hitting the road! We love it! Their first stop was in Las Vegas, last July! We had such a blast dropping off clothes and checking out all of fun items everyone was swapping!

Alyssa Roensch swaps her items for some new goodies!

“The clothing swap was a great way to refresh my wardrobe for free simply by swapping a few items from my closet that I was tired of,” said Roensch!

It was so much fun to watch everyone swapping in the big ball room in Las Vegas last July. We, personally, haven’t seen this in action yet. But, it was really cool to check out! They were so impressive and it was so good to see our friend Emily in action. What a bold boss babe she is!

“Going to Las Vegas to this event and being able to have a wider reach in the plus size community has been a dream come true,” says BB& B owner, Emily Treischel. “I never thought my little idea would take off the way it has. Every single woman deserves to have nice clothes and feel confident in her skin regardless of where she shops. I’m so grateful we can make that happen for people who don’t always have that luxury.”

Well, the fun isn’t stopping in Vegas. The show is BACK in Living Large Chicago event in October! What?? We can’t wait to follow them around the country! They even have an awesome new logo to represent their incredible new growing reputation! 

An excerpt from their event page for Reno (which you should check out HERE because you need to RSVP!):

Come trade your gently used clothes in sizes 14 and up for new, fabulous pieces!

Drop your items off on hangers from 12-2. Earn credit for the items you bring. Come back and shop in a positive environment from 3-5pm using the credit you earned at drop off. Everything is organized by size and easy to find! Nothing over $10!

Awesome raffle prizes, wonderful vendors and an afternoon of fun! Clean out your closets, and we will see you there!
