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 heard there was a #bootyrevolution ??? 😂 jk but HONESTLY I was just telling my babe that anytime I wear anything other than @bear_skn boxers Im disappointed!! Theyre just so soft, moisture wicking, cute af, big enough for my fat ass, and they have mesh underneath for breathability. Im obsessed. They aren’t paying me to say this yall. Though they did just gift me this new cactus pair and it definitely brightened my day!🌵

  • Swipe for a picture of a picture for #throwbackthursday of a grumpy lil J!! I cant believe some of y’all are young enough to have all of your childhood photos just like...available to you whenever you want WHEREVER you want because someone has them somewhere digitally?? Thats so awesome Im so thankful for the way technology progresses. My childhood photos are all hard copies stored away in boxes at my parents house back in Mass and I have to dig around and take pictures of them when I visit because my parents dont know how to use technology😂 I can imagine how old they must feel.
.
Just another one of those random realizations that Im growing up. I do think it’s a privilege to grow older. But little observations like this make me FEEL ancient. What makes you feel old?

  • Hanging outside at one of my favorite lunch spots, I started feeling insecure about my belly. I tugged at my shirt as people walked by. I wanted to try and hide it, which I know doesn’t REALLY make a difference. I am fat, no shirt placement can hide that.
.
I mentioned it to Corissa, saying I was “feelin that internalized fatphobia right now.” I can feel how my presence makes people uncomfortable and when I name it, like I did today, it reminds me that my body is not at fault. Its not a problem, an inconvenience, nor an eyesore. Its purely a vessel for me to get out and enjoy my life in!

  • I wrote the piece “Advocating For Yourself At The Doctor As A Fat Person Isn’t Easy - Here’s Where To Start,” (link in bio) because I want others to feel empowered to stand up to medical professionals. I don’t want us to be afraid of seeking help anymore. We have a right to individualized care. We have the right to be seen as people and to be treated holistically, as opposed to being seen as a statistic and doctors initiating fat protocol on us without even listening to our concerns.
.
For anyone who thinks Ive got it all figured out, I don’t. I still avoid seeking medical care because Im afraid sometimes. I have to work myself up to it. Its a struggle that I have yet to master. Had I worked on this before, I would have had my knee issue checked out and dealt with 6 years ago when I injured it.
.
How would your life be different if you could trust medical professionals to treat your properly?

I have a blog called Comfy Fat where I write about things like gender and fat activism topics. I recently wrote a piece called “Advocating For Yourself At The Doctor As A Fat Person Isn’t Easy - Here’s Where To Start.” You can check out the link in my bio to take a read❤️
.
Look out for weekly “Lemme Cheer You On” Mondays and Bad Advice in my stories. We have fun with it! We also have a lot of fun over on youtube. My handle is /comfyfat over there
.
I try and keep it pretty transparent. I have good days and bad days. Im honest about that. I don’t have it all figured out. Some things I do know a heck of a lot about. And its okay to ask questions, I truly want to be a resource to y’all. I just ask that you keep it respectful👌🏼Thanks for joining me and of course for all the love! 💕🌈
.
What can you celebrate about yourself today? Big or small!
