Plus Size Events; BGP21:44
I have now been to three BGP nights at the Slug & Lettuce, Aldgate and I must say I will probably never miss another.
A few of my model friends had spoken about BGP as they had been “Kittens” at previous nights and they always spoke so highly of it. I was apprehensive before my first event as I didn’t quite know what to expect.
The venue is currently a small London based bar, it’s hidden down a side street in Aldgate so there is not a lot of passing trade & walk-in’s which in my opinion is a real plus point to this event as the patrons are all on a similar wavelength.
BGP for the uninitiated is otherwise known as Big Girls Paradise. It is a club night geared towards creating a fun and safe environment for plus size women to come and shake it loose! The clientele is made up of mainly two types of people; Plus Size babes and admirers of Plus Size women. There are of course people in the venue who are not plus size and I feel that there is no harm in this at all, as long as they are there to have a good time and dance then I say – the more the merrier.
The atmosphere in the venue is lively and exciting, you don’t feel threatened or on hyper alert you just feel at ease and able to relax and have a good night.
The music provided by a rotation of a few DJ’s caters for the masses and they are skilled enough to be able to work the crowd. You can expect to hear your old skool classics, alongside a healthy dose of ragga/bashment & reggae. With some current chart hits, club classics and party anthems, there’s simply no time to sit down. You will be on your feet shaking your tail feather all night long.
The drinks are pricey but not any more than any other London bar.
Dress code is quite simple; Dress to Impress. While the event is populated by Plus Size Fashion Bloggers & Plus Size Models alike you will not be short of beautiful women in gorgeous outfits.
The credit to the event is by far the Kittens. Now I have worked as a “Crowd Starter” in many pubs & clubs in my time so I know exactly how fun it is to do this. These gals are perfect, not only do they look sensational EVERY time, but they are full of energy and smiles and they really know how to keep the crowd going. Well done Kittens.
I love BGP and I highly recommend the night for an amazing night out on the razzle with like-minded people who are also out to have a good time.
The next event is THIS Saturday…are you coming? Let me know I’d love to have a boogie & take a few #Selfies :)
