Its been a while since I’ve done a post like this! I originally created this blog to share resources and products in both Big & Tall fashion as well as accessibility tools that make life easier for us plus size folks. We deserve to be comfortable and to feel good! And while I love writing about the hard stuff like the intersections of fatness and gender, I’m really excited to share these fat favorites of February with you! This list includes items I’ve accumulated over the past few months. You can read my last post like this here.

Been thinking a lot about how fatness impacts my gender expression. Or rather, how other peoples perception of my fatness impacts how they interpret my gender. Fatphobia’s a bitch. People think my rolls, chest, curves, voice etc determine who I am and how they should refer to me. They think they have some sort of claim over my fat body. Im working toward a world where we are all able to be exactly who we say we are. Freely and safely. Im tellin’ y’all exactly who I am. Its time we respect that. .

Amazon has got the GOODS

I’m really loving the way Amazon is stepping up their game and finding more ways to include plus size fashion in the mix. They started with their Daily Ritual line which mainly consists of plus size women’s clothing. Up to 7x! I’ve been doing some research and found that their Amazon Essentials line has a few gems as well for those who like menswear! Lets go over the outfit in the above Instagram post first.

Big & Tall 5 Pack Crewneck T-shirts

These are available up to 6X and fit me very comfortably. They’re super soft and an incredibly affordable option from DXL. For $21 you get 5 shirts! I think people typically wear these as undershirts but I love just rocking a plain white tee.

Columbia Men’s Steens Big & Tall Full Zip

 

To be fair, I was hesitant about this one. Specifically because it’s fleece and I was concerned about feeling overheated. However, I’ve been so pleasantly surprised by this Columbia fleece jacket. Not only is it available up to a 6X, but it is roomy enough to zip up fully for me without it feeling restrictive. Its just warm enough and breathable enough so that I don’t feel like I’m getting sweaty in it. Plus you get to look like a well dressed dad.

Teva Men’s M Ember Lace Slipper

Okay look, I know these say they are slippers but I’ve been wearing them like boots. Teva is redefining what counts as “slippers.” They are SO comfortable. Plush, roomy, and with a rubber sole. They totally provide a solid shield against snow and such, so I’ve been really impressed with my warm, dry, feet this winter. Grab yourself a pair and I promise you’ll feel that delicate mix of comfort, sturdiness, and protective material you’re looking for in a casual winter boot.

Fat Trunk Jeans

I was lucky enough to have this awesome new company Fat Trunk, reach out and send me a pair of their custom off the rack stretch denim. Y’all. These jeans are so comfortable. Fat Trunk has a mission of creating jeans with a “mens” cut that’ll actually fit our fat bodies. They’re super soft, have just enough stretch, and have me feeling sexy as hell. Sign up for their newsletter and let em know what kinds of issues you’re having with the big and tall denim market currently. They’re lookin’ to right those wrongs!

Bean Products Yoga Bolsters

I’m not exaggerating when I say I use this exact yoga bolster every single day of my life. I find that with my particular body pain, I need extra support for my back when I sit on the couch. This bolster is firm, large, and supportive. I also use it to sit on when I want to get down on the floor and stretch my legs. Adding that bit of height dramatically changes my experience of sitting on the floor. It is so much more accessible and comfortable.

Essential Medical Supply Chrome Foot Stool With Handle

If you’re anything like me (short and stout that is) you have a hard time reaching things. You also, like me, might be afraid to step on top of anything to get that extra height to reach something, in fear of it not being able to hold your weight. I had the brilliant idea to look into medical grade foot stools and whaddya know! This medical supply foot stool supports weight up to 500 pounds and even has a handle. Perfect for those hard to reach cabinets at home or those home improvement projects that require reaching up high!

RMS Sock On Device

This is actually a life changing item for me! Above you can watch a video of me trying the RMS Sock On Device for the first time. It is certainly true that the more practice you get with this device the easier it becomes. I use this item anytime I want to wear socks, which, in the winter is nearly every day. It might feel a little strange at first to use but it really is one of my favorite accessibility tools thus far!

Thats it! This list includes my Fat Favorites of February! I’m always open to trying out products for accessibility and/or plus size fashion. What items have you been using or wearing lately that you absolutely love?

  • I use they/them pronouns. Do you? Whether its my Mx. hat from @genuinevalentine , the pronoun pins I made with my love @fatgirlflow , my various tees, or my whole damn they/them arm tattoo, I always welcome more opportunities to have something to wear and point at whilst I awkwardly correct people who misgender me😂 Check the link in my bio to grab a shirt for yourself👌🏼
.
Ps. Im wearing a 5x. It fits surprisingly well for someone who prefers a 6x. Still, I wish they had larger sizes available, too.

  • I’ve got mental health and wellbeing on my mind. What are some signs that tell you you gotta reach out, get support, or work on your mental hygiene in whatever ways work for you?
.
For me, its when Im not reaching out to my friends. Its when I notice them asking me how Im doing and I respond with some shit like “good and how are YOUUU” because my scorpio ass loves to listen and not talk about my shit!!

  • Hi 🌸 Hope all is well. Here’s a pic of me “glorifying obesity” as they say, on this lovely Tuesday.
.
News - I just updated my amazon shop where you can look through categories Ive set up like “Plus Size Swim” and “Big & Tall Button Ups” to find affordable clothing and accessories. I try and make sure everything is available in at least 3x (and above). The “Personal Care” category is where Ive added tools to help with self care and fat accessibility. Theres furniture, foot care, and even anxiety tools. Oh, and I just added over 50 items to the “FALL FUN” category if that is your thing😂 Link is in the bio!

  • This is my first time trying yoga in a really long time. My body looks much different than the last time I did. In a way, I feel like Im learning my way around my body again. Figuring out how to move my belly around to reach optimal comfort and stretch. I started using joyn recently (@letsjoyn); an online streaming service for accessible yoga, dance, meditation and more. Its been such a meaningful experience to see bodies that look more like mine, moving and knowing their bodies. I wrote up a blog post about my experience with joyn and you can find the link in my bio and my stories! Thank you @letsjoyn for bringing accessible yoga into my life!

  • Hi I love this new tee from @bigboysarecute 👋 My fat body is politicized, scrutinized, and even dehumanized by a culture obsessed with thinness and dieting. My fat body is more regularly than not outcasted, forgotten, and made a mockery of. Its discouraging and Im exhausted by it. It really does feel like My Body vs Society a lot of the time. And I feel empowered bringing that to light with this tee. A good tshirt can be a great conversation starter. I love letting people know where my values are right off the bat!

In what ways do you feel like its “your body vs society?” What would make you feel more empowered?

  • I want to write a book. I want to travel the world. I want to make people smile. I want to teach classes. I want to create clothing. I want financial stability and even further - financial comfort. I want to make a difference. I want to own a home. I want to live in Mass part-time. I want to take care of my family. I want to learn how to manage my anxiety. I want to move my body more.
.
Just thinking about my goals lately and trying not to feel self conscious about sharing them. Im 27 and I don’t really know what Im doing. But I appreciate y’all for the love and kind words and for being here with me. What do you want in life? Whatre your goals?👇🏼
