Britain's Miss Plus-Size Pageant Crowned Beauty

Participants in the Miss Beauty Curve 2014 pageantThese buxom beauties prove that big really is beautiful as they strut their stuff at the Miss British Beauty Curve competition.
The pageant for plus-size women saw 30 contestants - ranging from a size 14 to a 26 - flaunt their figures in everything from evening gowns to swimsuits.
A dance number opened the show, when the girls burst onto the stage to Chris Brown's Beautiful People. 
And after a close-fought three rounds, freelance TV presenter and current Miss Norfolk Curve Emily Blake, 24, walked away with the title at the The Lost Theatre, Wandsworth, London, on Sunday night.

She wowed the judges after flaunting her size 16 curves in a daring yellow bikini and a sexy red dress during the finale.
Emily said: 'I feel like I'm dreaming, and I'll wake up and it won't be real.
'I'm so proud that I've won. I love being plus size, it makes me feel sexy and women who are bigger should be confident with their curves.
'When most people think of beauty queens they think of perfect bodies, tiny waists and never-ending legs.
'But I eat healthily and I exercise so I know I'm fit, this is how women should look. It's natural. I'm proof that you don't have to be a perfect ten to be a beauty queen.'
The 30 women, all of whom are at least a size 14, battled it out to be crowned Miss Beauty Curve

While second judge Rio Watchorn, 21, who won Miss British Beauty Curve 2012, said the judges were looking for confidence above everything else in the winner.
'The competition is all about saying, 'yes it wobbles, get over it,' she explained. 'We want everyone competing to be proud of their curvy body, which is sexy and natural.
'I'm looking for a winner who isn't scared to flaunt their curves. It isn't easy to get up on stage in front of a room full of people, never mind when you are wearing a swimsuit, so all of the girls are incredibly brave to take part.
