Good Vibrations celebrated body positivity and sensuality with a very enthusiastic crowd on Friday October 17th 2014 with their Abundance event. Abundance_67

The Sexy at Every Size campaign was developed to promote body positivity, and Abundance: A Sensual Exploration of Plus-Size Pleasure converted that message into a spectacular celebratory event at Good Vibrations’ new Lifestyle Boutique on Kearny Street adjacent to Union Square in San Francisco.

The event premiered new lines of plus-sized lingerie and strap-on harnesses and included personalized fittings and product consultations by SpareParts, Coquette, Oh La La Cheri and Sportsheets.

“I was thrilled to have the support of so many of our vendors for this popular event. We have long sold items in a range of sizes but actually being able to showcase lingerie up to 4x and harnesses that fit up to 5x was revolutionary!” – Coyote Days, Purchasing Manager for Good Vibrations.

In addition to showcasing products, attendees were also provided free vintage hair and make-up demonstrations from Shameless Photography; the body-positive pinup, old Hollywood, and retro boudoir photo studio that works to empower women through makeovers and photo sessions.

Virgie Tovar, author and fat activist facilitated the merriment as the emcee of the evening, interviewing staff experts and guest alike, and promoting the in store drawing with prizes donated by Dreamgirl, Lelo, Perseus Books, Wicked Pictures, and of course the aforementioned vendors working the event.

“Part of Good Vibrations’ #SexyAtEverySize campaign is to emphasize that all body types are worthy of feeling sexy and admired”, said Duran.
