I have googled every last variant of “fat beach resort” and -lo and behold- I think the internet just exploded. But seriously, folks, if there are specialized resorts for everything, why can’t there be a beach where I don’t have to worry about being ridiculed for my jiggly thighs or poked in the belly by a local? I know, I know- we are supposed to be proud and just rock it, and I am and I do- but on a honeymoon, you want errrything perfect, yes? The only thing The Google had for me was a sketchy 10-yr old website for some place in Mexico- does NOT seem legit…is this a business I NEED TO START MYSELF?? WHERE THE BIG GIRLS SWIM AT??
Long Beach, California’s Club Bounce caters to fat people “who might have some trouble getting past the velvet ropes at other night spots because of their size.” And where there are happy fat people, there’s controversy! The semi-reasonable controversy that attends any fat-specific gathering or…
AMAZEBALLS! REBEL YELL Y’ALL!
WTF, Target? You know I need my Liz Lange maternity and deep-discount So Delicious coconut milk, don’t make me take my fat bucks elsewhere! Susan Clemens points out this bunch of bullshit on Twitter: What the. #wtfplus #fatchicksrule
neiman marcus, “cayene alisha printed ankle jeans,” $130
it’s not that these are ugly- whatever. it’s that this is the model neiman marcus is using for their plus size line. in fact, all of their plus size models are very thin. for some items, they just use the picture from the ‘straight sized’ version (which i still think is fucked up), but some of these clothes don’t come in ‘straight sizes’.
look at this crazy shit
while it’s technically good that they have so many items where the sizes extend from 0-22, why use the same size models for all of it (and why default to the straight sized model)? also, the plus size versions are $25-$60 more than the straight sized versions. why even sell clothes for us if you don’t want to show pictures of us?
this is a plus-sized model, therefore, I will be walking the runway at the next NYFW…wtfplus please keep up this amazing blog!
Not sure what on earth is going on here but it’s cringe worthy. It looks like they couldn’t decide what kind of bodice to put on this dress and so they put both.

editor’s note: i’m really confused by this- it’s like they wanted to give us the illusion of the classic plus size andre the giant single sleeve but weren’t brave enough to just go for it.
Pardon me if this is incorrect, but is that model wearing some sort of deep-vein thrombosis compression sleeve on her arm?
Am I, like, totally awful b/c I think this is kind of cute? I mean, I think i could rock it, although, the bottoms are meant to be swishy and they probably wouldn’t me on ye (me) olde thighs of thunder.

editor’s note: i really love rompers. i really do. i have the perfect kind of round body where i think i look adorable in everything. in a bathing suit i look either very sexy or like a very large cute baby. this is not a cute romper. this is like someone was trying to make the bare minimum to be considered ‘clothes’. this is like the bored teenage daughter of a clothing designer wrote ‘shirtpants’ in magnetic poetry on their fridge and they were inspired.
I’m like 99% sure this is how the process of upsizing straight sized dresses goes down

AMAZE AMAZE AMAZE!!!
THIS. if you were born with a thigh gap, embrace it, it’s beautiful. And if you were born without one, then that’s beautiful too! All body types are beautiful the way they are, so please don’t try to change something that you really don’t need to.
Honestly. How far apart your thighs are doesn’t determine how healthy you are. It’s bone structure. If you don’t have a thigh gap and you’re all “I NEED ONE”, the only real way to do that is basically restructure your bones and that’s just no.
Oh I like these comments, I had some others saying how body oppressive it was because I was saying it wasn’t okay to have thigh gaps or be thin and proud of your body or something. This wasn’t my idea at all, it was meant to be about how ridiculous the obsession with the female body ideal is all together; not some comment that body acceptance means being a certain size/shape. Siiiigh sorry just thought I should explain myself, it’s unnerving when people have these massive rants under a drawing about how wrong it is. But that’s what you get for doing Internet I suppose.
here have the fruits of my 4am google search for “gay cat”
