I am about to go through the “plus-size” carnival costumes for Saint Lucia Carnival 2023, but I prefer to call it “full” or “more coverage.” The reality is even leaner women prefer more coverage for various reasons.

You can find plus-size carnival costumes with almost any band you look.  Besides, Carnival is for all shapes, sizes, and COMFORT levels.  The reality is body shape doesn’t dictate what someone should wear at Carnival. Comfort level does! I am honestly not a fan of labeling a costume style with someone’s size. I write this blog referencing “plus-size” because it is how people look for information.  Just know that if you are a plus-size woman looking for a carnival costume, you can wear whatever you want.  You can read my thoughts on this topic here. 


At any rate,  let’s check out the options for this year!

Xuvo Carnival

**AWM’s PICK!** Xuvo Carnival’s theme this year is “Down the Rabbit Hole.” The costumes were designed inspired by the “Alice in Wonderland” theme. My favorite plus-sized costume design is “Wonderland” by Alejandro Gomez. I also love Xuvo because you can choose a carnival costume with more coverage and wear the big feathers.  If you want to check out Xuvo’s costume options for Saint Lucia Carnival 2023, click here.  I played mas with Xuvo last year, and it was a VIBE.  I can’t wait to see them again this year.  Check out the band launch video below.

Fuzion Mas

Fusion Mas’ theme this year is “Feel the Music,” designed with the inspiration of various musical artists and hits.  Be sure to check out their website here.

Just 4 Fun’s theme this year is “Into the Beyond.”  To check out their plus-size costume options, click here.

Let’s Talk About Plastic Surgery.

In this blog, I discuss my experiences with plastic surgery (PS) and the serious life lessons learned along the way. I really dislike public figures that display their bodies but don’t want to admit they got work done. Honestly, I feel like if you’re in the eye of the public, you should come with a disclaimer you got work done. People look to you and damn near kill themselves to get the ass that you just won’t admit you paid for. Confession: My breasts were bought, I got some liposuction, but this ass is real. If you get squeamish, there is a photo below and this blog isn’t for you.
