Iya Thomas

While planning the plus-size friendly events she will attend in 2015 Iya found it extremely frustrating to have to join several Facebook groups and visit multiple websites to obtain the information needed to plan her schedule.

The idea of Shapely was born and Iya decided to develop a website providing a comprehensive list of plus-size friendly events. Based in NYC, Iya often travels to various places nationally and abroad. She is friendly, approachable, and will greet you at any function.

In 2015 we hosted our very first seminar, Rock Your Rolls on May 2nd at the 2015 Cocoa Beach Bash. We've since taken that concept on the road and hosted seminars at various other bashes.  We also held our "Fatty Friendly Day of Fitness” where the goal is to encourage others to be more active as opposed to being skinny. In August of 2016 we hosted our "Rock Your Rolls" fashion show at Ashley Stewart and plan on doing even bigger things in 2019.  Follow us on social media, sign up for our mailing list on the home page, and/or continue checking back on the site to stay updated.
