That Curvy Lane: Latasha Ngwube Of "About That Curvy Life"


What does 'fat shaming' mean to you? If I am to start up this conversation, it will definitely lead to a book or thesis on the realities of numerous stupidity, depravity, unnecessary and unwarranted tales associated with it.

Who told you, you will never find your perfect size? Who told you, you won't look dead drop gorgeous in any outfit because of your size? Who says you won't turn heads and stop the show when you walk into a place? Who told you, you aren't a slay queen?

However, if you are the one that must have managed to convince yourself on that notion, or let others convince you, then babe it's time to stop!!!


There was an experience I had some years back which has left a permanent mark in my way of reasoning: I went out to get something, and two very lovely ladies walked out of a compound, one was skinny and the other was big, like really big.

The crazy thing was every single person stopped to gawk at the lady on the bigger size including me, not because she looked terrible or because her outfit was amazing, but because of the confidence she wore wrapped around her and she smelt wonderful too. The gist here is for you to be confident and bold, which is more than enough statement you can make to get admiration and compliments.



Let's take our inspiration in this latest episode on the Curvy Lane from the very beautiful, confident, vibrant, fierce chic and elegant Latasha Ngwube who is popularly known also as Latasha Lagos.


Latasha Ngwube is a lifestyle journalist, content editor for Vanguard Allure Magazine, and also the founder of African curvy empowerment community website 'About that curvy life.'

She has broken boundaries and achieved greatly for her self. She made history by making the prestigious Lagos Fashion and Design week hold its' first ever plus size show, which ended up being a show stopper.

I haven't met her in person, but from her IG pictures and articles on her website, one can tell she has a great sense of humour, positive vibe and empowering thoughts and confidence with and in her style.


The first picture I saw of her was in a gold wrap dress, and she stunned in it, not only because the outfit was right on her, but because of the carriage, cheerfulness and confidence she used in rocking the dress.

To her "about that curvy life is more than a hash tag or a website, it is a dedication to be kind to myself and love my body, and sometimes that means cutting calories and sweating it out at the gym, sometimes it means speaking to it with love because it's only one we get and other times for me, it's just exhaling in peace without restrictions."



For those of us who still need more inspiration and motivation on being confident, stylish, and god damn gorgeous, why don't you head over to her IG page @latashalagos or better still head over to her website - aboutthatcurvylife.com for more style tips. But for now, let's enjoy her style game below;
