There simply is not enough work in this industry, especially as a BBW, to make this a career. It doesn't pay your bills. It just won't.

I unsubscribed to The Knot's wedding planner app when it alerted me that I had not "started a fitness routine to get in shape for the wedding."

Somehow, I thought this process would be easier for me. Because I was going to design clothes for me, the plus-sized girl who loves fashion but, like many others, becomes annoyed and nauseous at the prospect of actually shopping for it.
plus size
I see more and more people recoiling from the term "plus size" like it's a total slam. What's up with that?

I talked with the singer-songwriter about beauty, body image, sabering open a bottle of champagne with a sword, and OH YEAH, those two Grammys she's up for on Sunday.
body issues
I'm not fat and I'm not skinny. So what am I?
plus size
I get it, I really do. Dressing a fat body is not the easiest thing in the world. The paucity of fashionable clothing aside, the pressure to "flatter our curves" is a constant, all-consuming one

I’m not trying to be hard on you, fashion magazines. It’s just that you seem to be indulging some weird phobia about putting a plus-sized woman on your cover in any circumstances other than a flapping tent or an extreme close-up.

"The fashion and media industries have been dominated by one ideal for so long and it is time for more diverse body shapes to be admired."

Because fatties should be able to look like delicious giant cupcakes on their wedding day, too.

"Being healthy is something that's very important to me, especially because people like to stereotype that being plus size is not healthy! I’m healthier then some of my younger/skinnier friends!"
fashion
If you go with a straight-size model you're hit with suggestions she isn't a 'real woman' (utter nonsense) and if you dare to use a plus-size model, then she isn't quite 'plus size enough' or deemed not 'real plus size'.

In 1988 I was the Usain Bolt of breast development and no-one in the entire school could catch me.
