Fat Favorites – Boxers, Binding, and Big Boy Threads

Whats up my lovely fat friends?! I’ve got some new products for you that I’ve been seriously digging the last couple of months. I’ve been fortunate enough to have been gifted some really great items this time around, (none of these brands have paid me to review them). So you can know that the items discussed on this post are my genuine recommendations. Finding clothing items that are available to plus size/big & tall folks who live their lives toward the super-fat end of the fat spectrum are hard to come by. I’m excited to share these pieces with you. Lets get to it!

Bear Skn

Okay! I’m so incredibly excited about this new brand I found called Bear Skn. They create men’s underwear with truly the big guy in mind. Note: You absolutely do not have to be a man to wear these ultra comfy boxer briefs, as proof from the photo below!

 

Their site boasts that they’re “2x softer than cotton” based on their combo of cotton plus material made from bamboo and I tell ya, they’re right. These babies feel luxurious. And they truly wick moisture away. They don’t bunch up so I haven’t dealt with any of that painful chub rub.

Also, they have this neat mesh built into the undercarriage which like, yeah, of course that makes sense! Why didn’t we think of this before? Air that shit out baby, no matter what kind of junk you’ve got, that breezy, uncluttered feeling is good.

I got five pairs of these Bear Skn boxer briefs in the mail and immediately threw away five of my old pairs. Leveled the heck up.

King Size

I recently won a pretty stellar gift card to King Size through a contest that the folks over at AllGo were hosting, (check out AllGo for an app that allows users to rate restaurants, public spaces, offices etc based on accessibility). I was so stoked about what I found for products on the King Size website. Generally, when I shop big & tall, I tend to find that there aren’t a lot of trendy pieces available over a 3x, if at all. It feels frustrating to narrow the size down to a 5-6x and only see a plain black t-shirt and a lackluster grey zip up sweatshirt available. King Size has definitely upped their game here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This sweatshirt was the piece I was most excited to get in the mail. I’ve been looking for a cutoff hoodie that actually looks baggy and cute on me for years. And finally, King Size heard me. I’m wearing a 6x in the photo above and could not have been happier about this purchase. Its soft as hell, true to size, and stylish. Catch me wearing this hoodie at any chance of a light breeze for as long as I can!

gc2b

This brand isn’t super new. In fact they’ve been around long enough to have been my first experience with binding back in 2015. At the time, I was still struggling with internalized fatphobia and often ordered clothing items that were 1-2 sizes too small. Oftentimes those were the only sizes available and I’d buy them in hopes that they’d fit someday. (PS that’s a super toxic diet culture-y thing to do and it doesn’t serve us any good to hold onto clothing hoping for a new/different body someday! Throw that shit out the window. Along with the clothes that don’t fit. Wait, donate them. Yes, thats the best plan).

Anyway, back in 2015, I ordered the biggest size they had, knowing it would not fit. This is incredibly dangerous when binding. (The binder should feel fitted enough to make an impact on flattening your chest. It should NOT impact breathing, leave painful marks on your body etc.). I held onto that binder for years, stuffing myself into it just long enough to take a couple of photos and then somehow maneuvering my way out. However, gc2b extended their size range in the years and I finally got my hands on this 5X nude no. 4 tank binder. My face says it all. Relief. Excitement. Freedom.

 

Big Boy Season 365

And finally, the last brand I’m sharing with y’all is a new up-and-coming brand for big and tall folks. Big Boy Season 365 gifted me two shirts that I’m really into. They’re printed on your standard Gilden comfort tee which is great news for us bigger folks, as that means they offer sizes up to 6x! The average Big Boy Season 365 shirt costs just 25 bucks and you can feel good not only supporting a small business, but also rocking a tee with that masculine style fat boy positive vibe you’re looking for! Check me out in my new fav “Positive Vibes Only” tee!

What kind of help do you need when looking for plus size/big & tall clothing options? What category of clothing are you struggling with finding? Dresswear? Workwear? Sleepwear? Let me know! I’d love to help find what’s out there for ya and make navigating the world as a fatty a little easier.

  • 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?👇🏼

  • Thanks for teaching me not only HOW to travel but that I CAN travel. Im allowed to be bold, take risks, and see new places. And comfortably, too. I learn so much from you @fatgirlflow 💕#fattravel #psblogger #plussizetravel
  • This photo gave me dysphoria yesterday. Today Im lookin at it feeling nothing negative at all. Bad body days happen, y’all. Its not our fault. Its not our body’s fault. Some days its just in the air. I try and remind myself of that when Im in bed crying about not liking my body. This too shall pass. It always does.
.
Remember one of those times recently that you felt hot as hell? Like confident, sexy, beautiful etc. Think of that moment when you’re not ok. Ask yourself, “whats so different about me now? In this moment? Is my body any different?” The answer is most likely no! Nothing is that different. We dont drastically change overnight. Its more likely that you saw some shit on tv that made you feel insecure and its bubbling up. Remember that. Its not you. Its really not.

  • I am trying SO HARD not to be wearing a hat every single day and in every photo but its difficult my friends.  Not sure why, but its become quite the security blanket for me to always have a hat on hand. Its like, the second I put one on I feel so much more at ease. As if it ups my chill factor x10. So Im trying to just recognize that my face is just a face and my hair is just hair and Im the same level of chill with or without a goddamn hat😂 (hint: barely chill - I am riddled with anxiety).
.
What does your security blanket look like? Do you have one and is it for keeps?

Outfit is @kingsizedirect 👌🏼
