this just in: the problem with plus size fashion is that plus size women are too mean and critical and full of self-loathing. hey guys, the only thing holding us back is ourselves. if we weren’t so NEGATIVE, we could be in the same place we were years ago and gratefully accepting polyester crumbs. quotes amazing sources like ‘an anonymous blogger.’

Ohhhhh. That totally explains it all.

Tried to put pen to paper with my thoughts on depression after hearing the horrible news and seeing what erupted on my newsfeed.

Has anyone given Gwynnie Bee a try? I recently started the trial for their service and I’m really excited! Got my first package today and if think it’s really going to help me step outside of my comfort zone (since my brain automatically assumes that as a fatty I need to be wearing dark colors and muted patterns).

I love that you can choose to pay for and keep items you really love. I also love that this will enable me to try out all new clothes and wardrobe without forking over a lot of money.

The one thing I wish was different is I wish I could order my closet like a Netflix queue. Because I found a LOT of cute stuff, but it wasn’t summer appropriate so I had to put them on hold so I didn’t get a sweater dress in 90F weather.

god, could this outfit (and the model) be cuter?

How often have you been shopping and you come across something that is just PERFECT, but does not go up to your size? Over 60% of American women wear a size 14 or above, but only 17% of clothing sold is 14 & up. That is a ridiculous disparity.
Moreover, when some brands move into plus (ahem H&M), they throw their signature trendy looks by the wayside in favor of flowy dark fabrics that they think “work” for plus sizes. That is crap. Plus size women want color, print, and structure. Moreover, we want variety. A group this numerous cannot be a monolith, and since style is such a personal thing, we all have different tastes. I want #plussizeplease to be a way to showcase the demand for styles we’d buy and rock, and all the money brands are forfeiting by refusing to expand their sizes.
So here’s how to use it:
1) Snap a picture of a garment you love but does not come in your size. Include the brand and price, tagging the company if possible. For example, I am in love with this Zara marble print dress. I would have purchased it yesterday if it went above a size L. My tweet would be:
“.@Zara marble print sheath, $59. I’d buy it right now if it came in my size. #plussizeplease”
2) Use it on any social media – Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, Pinterest… even Facebook supports hashtags now.
3) Tag anything you’d purchase, whether in store or online.
4) Feel free to include the size range it comes in and/or the size you think you’d need. Sizing can be tricky, so this is definitely not required.
5) Tell your friends! I don’t just want this to be a blogger thing – I want all women who wear size 14 and up to show their purchasing power and share styles they love. Let’s be unignorable!


Um, yes. I will be doing this.

why i hate shopping for plus size clothes

  • Clothing designers: listen fatty, you clearly don't give a shit about yourself so why not wear this burlap sack (available in leopard print) with the word 'diva' across the front in glitter. that's good enough for you, fatty. right? oh and that sack is like $40 more than regular clothes bc clearly your fat ass has money bc you eat so much. ps we hate you
