wtf, plus size clothing manufacturers?: hey ! i need your opinions !how do you guys feel about the good...

hey ! i need your opinions !

how do you guys feel about the good number of people who post in fatshion tags who wear sizes that don’t necessitate plus size clothing/wear sizes that are like… US 10-14?

i generally err on the side of being inclusive, but i sorta feel like entertaining the idea…

I fit in that weird gray area too! i constantly ask myself “am i a fat skinny person, or a skinny fat person?” i don’t like that my mind drifts to questions like that. why can’t i just be a cute girl who likes fashion?! it sucks being left out of regular fashion because I have size 38G boobs on a 5 foot frame that usually wears a 12-16. If I don’t consider myself plus sized then what am I? Should I start tagging my outfit posts with #short but big boobies? If I’ve felt fat my whole life and someone just decides one day that I can’t have that word anymore then what should I identify as? I feel the pain of all plus size ladies because I’ve always been the fat best friend. 90% of my friends are skinny or straight sized and I’m 100% sure they consider me “fat” even though they think its rude to confirm that. I can admit that I have it easier than ladies on the larger end of the plus spectrum when it comes to shopping and clothes…but I refuse to accept that I am not “fat” enough for all the hate and insults I’ve experienced in my life so far.


On a different note I totally use this “fatshion” blog as research for the exclusively plus size clothing/vintage shop I’m planning to open online!

Love this response. I wear a 16w-20w or around 18 misses currently, but at my very smallest I was a 12. I often find that I need up to a 3x in tops b/c I’m extremely busty with a G cup (even when I was smaller) and I’m really short (only 5ft!). I can get away with shopping xl/xxl at Old Navy and Gap still but find there is a lot more for me in plus sized stores! I consider myself “fat” and don’t think it’s fair for other’s to judge us as too fat or not fat enough. a size 12 on a girl who is only 5ft is still quite overweight, so it really depends on the person! To each his or her own!
