Fat Favorites of May

Happy May Everyone! In an attempt to use my (privileged) powers for good, I want to share some info on a few products that I’ve scoped out recently. If they’ve made my life a little bit easier and more enjoyable, I want to tell you about ’em! So, I figured I would try out a  monthly-ish “fat favorites” list to share my glorious finds. Here are my fat favorites of May!

Both Big And Tall!

Okay, so I’m not actually tall. I’m fairly short. But because of the way my belly hangs, I often find myself wanting a wide and “tall” shirt – for the length. I don’t dig not being able to lift my arms into the air without unwillingly turning my t-shirt into a crop top. Its just not my jam. I wrote an article recently about my disappointment with buying long shirts from the menswear section at ASOS, you can read about it here.

So, my comfy shirt quest continued. And it led to the first of my fat favorites. I’ve tried King Size Direct in the past and I haven’t been super excited about their styles. But I knew that if at the very least I wanted some plain or striped t-shirts that actually fit me, that would be where I’d find them. This 5XLT striped v-neck is actually big and tall. That’s right, it’s long enough to not show my tum when I lift my arms!

Pictured above is a cute fat butch who feels comfy in their skin and isn’t deterred by the “no stripes on fat people” rule! Go grab yours, they’ve got a bunch of colors and it goes up to 9X in this style!

Unexpected Fat Favorites

This one might be a bit of a surprise to some folks, but I’ve always wanted to learn an instrument, like the guitar or ukulele. The problem is, my arms and fingers are short and fat, and my chest and round tum get in the way of being able to comfortably play. So I went to our local music store and tried out some different ukulele styles!

This Beginner Concert Style Travel Size Ukulele is absolutely one of my top fat favorites. Here’s why. With a travel size uke, you’re getting an instrument that is only 1.96 inches in width. That’s nearly half the width of your general, cheap, beginners style uke.

The concert style boasts an arched back for “greater resonance.” Since I’m a newb, I can’t really speak to all that. But I do find it helpful to have the slight curve on the back to rest against my belly!

My Pants Have Never Been So Secure

My. Pants. Always. Fall. Down. I mean, always. It doesn’t matter if I’m wearing tight skinny jeans, “boyfriend jeans,” swim shorts, or leggings. The shape of my body just simply does not allow for pants to stay secure. So, unless the goal is to show the general public my cute Tommy Hilfiger boxers (in some instances I do want to show them off, grocery shopping is not one of those times), I need a belt. However, they rarely come in my size.

My partner found this amazing stretch elastic braid woven waist belt over on amazon. I can’t brag enough about this product. It comes in a 67″ and it stretches! Like a lot! The greatest part is that it doesn’t actually have any predetermined holes to put the peg into. So you just put them through the woven fabric wherever it feels right. This belt is a game changer. And it looks cute too.

Oh, and it doesn’t dig into my belly like those firmer belts in the past have. It may seem simple, but it feels so good knowing I’m not going to moon anyone if I’m carrying groceries and don’t have a hand free to keep pulling my jeans up!

A Beach Chair?!

Well, not quite. This Guidesman XXL Steel Folding Patio Chair is actually made for patio and camping like adventures. But that didn’t stop me! Getting up and down on the beach is really difficult on my knees. It’s also just sort of hard to sit comfortably on the ground and hold myself up? So, I purchased this guy from our local Menards store and it has a 600 pound weight limit which is incredible. 

 

 

I’ve never felt so certain of the sturdiness of an outdoor chair before. Though it isn’t super light, I was able to carry it across the sand to give it a try. Y’all. It is magical. Is this what thin people feel like? They’re just out here not worrying about breaking an outdoor chair? Amazing.

Also! This is considered an “extra-wide” chair. The arms were no where near digging into my hips/sides which is basically unheard of for my size 30, barrel-shaped, bod. I am so pleased with this purchase, I wish I could buy them for every one of my fat friends!

Thats it for my Fat Favorites of May! Found any products recently that you love and think I should try? What are your fat favorites?

    If you haven’t already, check out destination XL for t-shirt. They are more expensive than King direct but the quality is much better. They also have physical stores that you can try on.

    • Dressed head to toe in @kingsizedirect thanks to winning a pretty sweet contest hosted by @can.we.all.go !! Feeling real blessed tbh. Ive always wanted a pair of shorts with the rolled cuff at the ends. Also one of these hoodies which I NEVER thought I’d find in my size!

If you could win big money to ANY brand in the world where would it be? Doesn’t have to be clothing either👌🏼

    • Shout out to the weirdos, the outsiders, the creatives, the fatties, the underrepresented, the ones who live outside the binary, the ones who look to media and wish they looked different because they dont see themselves in anyone being praised or admired. I admire you. For your strength. For your persistence. For not having your shit together. For choosing authenticity over conformity. For refusing to be defined by strict societal rules. I admire you for being visible. You inspire me and Im thankful for you.

    • We’re working on training this lil guy and getting him more socialized out in the world and its WORKING! Look at him lay down all comfy! He is very anxious and gets easily distracted and disrupted by basically all sounds. Except for in his very specific safe spaces. He had been displaying some aggressive and protective behaviors regarding us and our home, (hes like 15 months old). So we’re taking him out more, slowly letting him adjust to learning that yes, there are other people in the world, and sometimes they exist NEAR us and its OKAY😂 He’s been to official training, gotten some doggy meds, and is responding super well to positive reinforcement (all the treats). anyway Im just really proud of his growth over the last few weeks and of @fatgirlflow for really taking the lead and using every opportunity for a learning moment! His name is Taco by the way. I tend to call him Tacho/Dacho.

    • The irony of me wearing this shirt today is that Im a bundle of anxiety. Anxious negative vibes. Im coming up against some new challenges professionally right now. And I have a really hard time with feeling defeated by new hurdles when Im not immediately great at things. I get so frustrated with myself and just want to throw in the towel. Does anyone else have experience with this? Extra points if you’ve got insight into how to tackle it.

Big thanks to @bigboyseason365 for gifting the shirt (which I love even on my hard days lol) and to @fatgirlflow for being the sweetest gem to me while Im learning and growing. Growth doesnt always look like flowers and sunshine. Sometimes it looks like cocooning yourself in bed and reflecting on things you need to reach out to people for help with.
