Fashion Is Political: About The Curvy Con

I would not call myself a fashionista, and clothing definitely isn’t something that makes me wildly excited. But I am excited about the fat community, our determination, and the noise we are currently making, that is slowly but surely tearing down oppressive boundaries that society has set. So, I was pretty hyped to be at…

Don’t Yuck My Yum; My Eating Disorder Story

Since starting this blog there have only been a few topics that I purposefully don’t discuss. One is anything involving my loved ones. This is because I’m not down with talking about people and their emotions and shit without their consent. The other, is my eating disorder. This story is incredibly personal to me, and…

Dear Panera, Just Make The Bagels and Let “Clean Eating” Die

My dearest bagel makers, I don’t need your weird marketing ploy to love you. You’re a bakery for Christ’s sake, your recipes involve things like cream cheese and frosting, your appeal is already solidified for me. But here we are, with another “clean eating” ad. See, you could have chosen to run ads that talk…

Plus Size Boudoir

Plus Size Boudoir

This is the first time I’ve ever modeled for a professional photographer (excluding my wedding, but I was not modeling!), and god damn what a way to experience having my picture taken!!!! My plus size boudoir shoot was everything I could’ve wanted. Many of you know that I have been a nude model for many…

Fuck Being Healthy

“I don’t care what you look like as long as you’re healthy” We’ve all heard it. Many of us have nodded along in agreement, quietly disengaging from the well-intentioned person saying it. I wonder how many of you stay quiet, like myself. I feel the words bubbling up in my chest every time, but they…

I hadn’t planned on sharing these photos this weekend, but that beautiful man making me smile was sick most of the week and I was testing out my ability to do that whole “in sickness and in health” thing. It turns out, I will do just about anything for my partner, even face down some…

#PLUSISNOTEQUAL

Last week Lane Bryant hosted an event in Time’s Square that was supposed to… ummm… I don’t know. Someone tell me what the fuck this event was supposed to do? Did it make Lane Bryant’s clothes less matronly? Did they suddenly stop running constant and ridiculous sales so that we could just get moderately priced…

YOU’RE DOING IT WRONG: STOP BLAMING THE CONSUMER FOR THE PLUS SIZE INDUSTRY’S FAILINGS

I think we need to have a very real discussion about a few things happening in the plus size clothing industry right now. Recently I’ve seen a lot of “call outs” from bloggers and influential people in the plus size community that basically consist of “Quit bitching about the things you don’t like and start…

NOBODY ASKED YOU: WHAT I THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT MY BODY POSITIVITY

NOBODY ASKED YOU: WHAT I THINK ABOUT WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT MY BODY POSITIVITY

Body positivity does not ask for your opinion, or unsolicited advice. It doesn’t ask for you to decide if you think it’s something that is “good” or “bad”. It’s never asked you to change who you are, or what you do with your own body. It seems some people still haven’t got the memo, so…

GLORIFYING OBESITY

GLORIFYING OBESITY

This week on Instagram I was told something about my body positivity that people like to throw out pretty often. I’m told that body positivity is ok, however “glorifying obesity” is dangerous. I of course responded with something short and snarky, because people on the internet that like to harass me do not get to…
