Fluffy GRL Movement is an education and empowerment community dedicated to challenging the status quo and normalizing the experiences of plus-sized and curvy women through innovative workshops, events, and corporate partnerships.

This year, Fluffy GRL Movement is hosting GRL Weekend, a two-day event series created to celebrate body diversity and build community around mental and physical wellness for plus-sized women and their allies.

On August 5, 2022, the Candid Convo Kickoff event will set the tone for the innovative, female exclusive weekend. Women of all shapes, sizes, and backgrounds will gather at the Aloft St. Louis Cortex in St. Louis, MO, for a cocktail style kickoff event to celebrate the first annual GRL Weekend. 

Hosted by Fluffy GRL Founder, Ebbi Nicole, this evening will center an interactive panel discussion exploring the taboo topic of health versus weight with special guest, curvy model and roller skater,  Natural Curvy Terray.


Complete with the soulful sounds of St. Louis jazz vocalist, Katarra, themed cocktails, and lots of GRL time, this kickoff event will be a summer must attend event.

The series will conclude with the much-anticipated Curves N’ Waves Pool Party on August 6 at the Collinsville Aqua Park in Collinsville, IL. In 2019, the pool party attracted over 100 women from across the region.

This year, the event is an immersive experience merging art with plus-sized bodies and movement. Flow art performers and glow in the dark body paint will illuminate the night to the tunes of a live DJ.



Additionally, special activation stations and signature gifts from Dove will be provided for Very Important Fluff (VIF) ticket holders.

GRL Weekend empowers women to amplify their voices beyond societal influence, celebrate self-expression, and understand the strength in diverse communities amongst women.

The series will set the bar for body awareness in the Midwest with an experience that guests will remember for a lifetime.

GRL Weekend 2022 is made possible by Aloft St. Louis Cortex, Dove, and Country Financial.

Created as an outlet for plus-sized and curvy women to build community around self-love and body diversity, Fluffy GRL Movement LLC centers, celebrates and amplifies the plus and curvy experience.

Through innovative events, workshops and transformative corporate partnerships, the Fluffy GRL audience is empowered to be the best version of themselves and share their stories to redefine what it means to live life as a full-figured woman in today’s society.

Fluffy GRL Movement began as a single event in 2011 on the campus of the University of Missouri - Columbia.

Over the past decade, Fluffy GRL Movement has partnered with corporations like Lane Bryant, Bumble, and Dove to educate and inspire thousands of women across the country.
