Let suburban-legendsss know that there are really cute and cheap plus size clothes at Forever 21. They have shitty business practices, but doesn't everywhere, and it's not like we have a huge range of places to pick and choose from. There's also Lane Bryant and Torrid, but their stuff is much uglier than F21. Torrid's good for jeans, though. Also, H&M does have a plus size line as well, but it's pretty rare in stores.
so, i'm 13 and am a little big for my age. i'm a size 12-15 us pants and have a pretty big belly. i really love myself now thanks to blogs like yours, so i thank you. i really wanna step out as far as clothes go. i'm currently at the top of the juniors section. what are some good stores for bigger girls who want clothes that fit but don't wanna look like a business lady, with things like floral pants and sweaters and what would likely be classified as "hipster" or "vintage"?
This is to the Anon asking about Fat-friendly Doctors in the LA area....I will recommend Dr. Michael Klein at the Verdugo Hills hospital. I just met him for the first time the other day, he has wonderful bedside manner and is friendly. I am making him my primary care physician. He is technically an "internist" (I guess that would mean specializes in internal health. I believe he is also a surgeon, so.)
This is a stupid question but every time I hit up my doctor and mention a pain, she asks "where" then 2 seconds later, "lose weight, it'll get better." I was wondering if any of your followers know any size-friendly or fat-friendly doctors in in California (Los Angeles area)? :(
Because Fat Frodo offered me the One Fat Ring and now I am a Fat Queen, beautiful and terrible as the Morning and the Night, Fat as the Sea and the Sun and the Snow upon the Mountain. All shall love me and despair.
OR, alternatively, we have to have some parameters for submission to make sure we are not inundated with pictures of skinny people slouching down, grabbing their stomachs, and calling themselves fat.
Go to fuckyeahfatpositive.tumblr.com. Click “submit” at the top of the page. Click “Submit a text post.” A drop down box will appear; click on “Submit a photo.” Then choose a file from your computer. Add a caption if you want. Make sure to check the box that says you’ve agreed to terms of submission. Pick any tags you want to put on the post, then submit!
Hey! I've been debating about buying the Extraordinarily Longer Thigh High socks from sock dreams. And it says that they fit up to 27in thighs. Mine are 29in. Has anyone ordered from here? Are they true to size?
(TW: size discussion) I am thinking of submitting a picture because I meet your minimum guidelines (US 12) but I'm pretty sure I'm not considered fat because my doctor says I'm only about 20% body fat. Suggestions? I don't want to submit and then get comments such as, "Another skinny girl pretending she knows what it's like to be fat."
Are you fat? Yes? Submit. No? Don’t.
Basically, if someone submits a pic, and my first reaction is “omg what is this skinny person doing submitting here?” your pic will not get posted. Otherwise, we do err on the side of inclusivity.
HOWEVER. Just because a person is a US12 doesn’t necessarily mean they are fat. The guidelines are just that: guidelines. If you are fat, then submit. If not, don’t.
