Author: Chastity Garner


Academic by mind and fashionista by heart, Chastity Garner is originally from Brunswick, Georgia, and has spent just under a decade in Atlanta, Georgia. She gained a Master of Public Administration degree from Kennesaw State University. During graduate school, she became a signature model for Jibri plus sizes in 2005. That experience opened up a world of garments and pieces beyond her imagination. By the misfortune of a knee injury, her days with the runway ended, but this opened up a new opportunity – wardrobe styling. Modeling was more about the clothes than actually modeling in her eyes.

Chastity opened up Garner Style to not only offer image consulting services to plus size women, but to the boutiques that serve them. After styling woman after woman, who had mountains of questions about style for the full-figured woman, this lead to the start of “The Curvy Girl’s Guide to Style,” a blog that reviews plus size fashion, gives the curvy girl style advice, and actively interacts with its readers to answer questions on fashion and style.

Recognition that this blog has a credible and solid place in plus size fashion came as increasing guest writer requests were sent from companies such as Dorothy Perkins and Skorch Magazine. Interviews from plus size fashion’s most recognizable fashion mavens, Ashley Falcon of Marie Claire Magazine and famed model, Velvet D’Amour, were granted for this blog as well. In addition, Chastity has more recently started writing for The Examiner, The Dallas Plus Size Fashion Edition.

Chastity currently resides in Dallas, Texas, with fiancé, Brian Valentine, and wonder dog, Sugarsnap, where she is continually writing on plus size fashion and the Curvy Girl Book Series.

    I was exposed to Chastity's book today and fell in love with it. She truly spoke to me and helped me to be more aware of my body type and continue to shop within my limits! I carried the book into the mall and had the Sales Associate writing down the name of the book to purchase! How amazing is that!
