Plus-size women strip off on London bus as they celebrate lingerie company’s 10th anniversary 

London traffic was stopped today as plus size models and body confident bloggers stripped off to brave the British weather.

Women of all shapes and sizes rode atop the London bus through the city, passing some of the capital’s most famous landmarks including Tower Bridge and Oxford Street.

And members of the public couldn’t help but stop and stare as the bus full of lingerie clad women drove by.

The women were celebrating lingerie brand Curvy Kate’s 10th birthday, with many praising the company for ten years of supporting boobs and body diversity.

Members of the public appeared amazed as they attempted their commute around the bus. 

The influencers wore lingerie sets of all shapes and sizes and while some went for the more conventional bra and knicker set, others stayed a little more covered in stylish bodies. 

While some of those celebrating donned comfortable trainers for the journey, others ‘dressed up’ in heels for the trip.

As the British weather brought a downpour, many sheltered beneath umbrellas or on the lower level of the bus.
