I'm getting married in a few months and have a gorgeous dress. But I don't really have a waist in it. I was wondering of anyone could suggest some inexpensive corsets for me.
Unfortunately, “inexpensive” and “corset” are not words often found together, especially in plus sizes. I don’t have any resources to offer, but I’m opening this up to the masses - followers, any suggestions?
Hey FuckYeahFatPositive! I am an admin for the blog FatBabesOfLA and I was wondering if you could publish this? We are a blog dedicated to building a community of fat acceptance for all genders, races, lifestyles, etc in the Los Angeles, California area and anyone who is interested can join and submit stories, artwork, events they're involved with, and generally participate in the blog. Thanks!
If you're up to treating yourself a bit (and by that i mean they're a bit pricy) addition elle has cute shorts and also very good jeans! them and penningtons have some good stuff. they sometimes put out coupons so its worth being on the mailing list uwu. i find addition elle has more in the way of clothes for younger people and penningtons had a bit more active wear.
Oh, another question: Do you know any sites where I can buy cute plus-sized shorts? I can't find of my size, and I'm dying to own a pair! Thank you! <3
I’ve had surprisingly good luck at Walmart with a pair of rolled-cuff short shorts that came with a cute little skinny belt as well - much as I hate supporting their business model, when you’re broke and fat and still gotta clothe your body, you do what you have to do - and, when I was financially solvent, Lane Bryant. But I’ll open the floor to better suggestions - followers, where do you buy your shorts?
so im fat. ive pretty much always been fat and i have skinny siblings AND parents so its always been a wonder where it comes from. anyway, my older sister is newly pregnant and i gave her some of my old clothes for her to wear for when she gets bigger with the baby. i think this would bother other people, but not me in the slightest. my body is fine the way it is. just wanted to share my story :)
Awesome! I myself have found some pretty nice tops in the maternity section from time to time - one I didn’t even realize was maternity until months later. :-)
Hey! I am a 44 H, and Caciques Strapless bra keeps me up. I usually use it with the clear straps for comfort but I don't have to. It's pricey, but solid and really well made, and at a 44 H to keep me up without straps also must use some sort of magic, so worth the price.
Replied to one of the posts with this -- but wanted to make sure it got posted, since this place is a godsend. Google "bravissimo" — This is a MAGICAL UK-based bra/swimwear store for women with D-L cups. CHECK IT OUT, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
Here’s a link for anyone who wants to check it out!
Edited to add: with the caveat that, as far as I can tell, they only go up to a 40 band. So that may not actually be all that helpful for us larger people in need of bras. But, if you’re a 38 or below and a D or above, go check it out!
In response to the girl who asked about strapless bras, I wear a 36D but I am almost 100% sure they carry 38DD id suggest any victorias secret convertible bras as a good strapless, sure the prices are steep but they are totally worth it!
I have to say I’ve never found anything over a D cup in a VS store, but then, I haven’t been in one for about a decade, so things may have changed. Worth checking out, perhaps!
I'm sure this has been asked before, but I need some suggestions for a good strapless bra. I'm a 38 DD and most strapless bras won't stay up on me.
Followers, any suggestions? I’m a 42F and have pretty much given up on the idea of strapless anything for myself, so I can’t really help you, but I’m sure there are people out there who’ve found better options.
