Full disclosure: I did not attend the Lane Bryant #PlusIsEqual rally in Times Square. However, I have been reading accounts of it and paying attention to the campaign as a whole. And I have to say, it’s disappointing.
Thick thighs are great, until you want to wear a dress in the summer. Then you have to figure out the best way to keep from enduring the most horrible pain of warm weather: Chub rub.
If you’re not into DIY costumes, it can be hard to find good ones to fit. The packaged ones in those pop-up Halloween shops are usually “one size fits all,” where “all” is smaller than a size 6. Even when they have “plus size” options, they’re rarely larger than a 12.

Even if you don’t totally recognize the name Nancy Upton, you have seen her pictures everywhere. For the last two weeks, news outlets and blogs have been abuzz about the woman who entered American Apparel’s Next Big Thing Contest by sending in pictures of herself bathed in ranch dressing, eating in a pool, and covering […]
Here’s the part where I tell you how cool I am because I’ve known Leslie Medlik, star of TLC’s Big Sexy (which airs tomorrow, Tuesday, August 30th at 10PM ET/PT), for years. She is one of the excellent and flabulous shop girls of my favorite plus sized store, Re/Dress NYC. I’ve always dug her style […]
(Editor’s note: frank discussion of weight follows.) Velvet D’Amour is a Renaissance woman in the truest sense.
