Erika Hudson, owner of Southern Charmz BBW says “I have struggled with insecurity and body image all my life.”

Maybe, that’s why she created a group in San Antonio that celebrates size.

“I want every person, regardless of size, to feel they are beautiful exactly the way [they] are. I want to help people of size to have the confidence they always wanted. Together we can do just that!” – Erika Hudson

Southern Charmz BBW ( is a group of Texan plus women and men who get together for a yearly Size Acceptance event. And, they are also a proud sponsor of our vision board session for the “Love Yourself” weekend coming up in less than two weeks!

Southern Charmz BBW began in 2016 when Erika started organizing her own events . They are definitely not the first to put on “BBW Events” or “Size Acceptance Events” in Texas, but the focus is for each person to love themselves no matter their size and to feel confident in their skin in an open, loving and nonjudgmental zone.  

“I want everyone to know how it feels to be accepted for who they are,” says Hudson. “Which is why, for all persons who register to Bold magazine’s events…you will receive a discounted rate towards the SouthernCharmzBBW Bash Sept 20-22, 2019.”

Wow! We love this!

“Beauty is the size of your heart, not your pants!! The most important relationship is the one with yourself. Once you love yourself you can appreciate the others that come in your life.” – Erika Hudson
