  1. I’m not geeked at all by any of this, sad to say. Most of those designers/labels/stores that are participating in this are willing to design for fat women, but only if you’re just a certain size fat. Once you hit a certain size, you’re just out of luck and can’t shop there – and that’s usually anything over a 3X.
    As for Lane Bryant and their “slimming jeans” and their new Tighter Tummy Technology, if I wanted to make my stomach look smaller, I’d wear a girdle, thank you very much. I happen to love my body just the way it is and I don’t need any slimming jeans or Tighter Tummy Technology to make me look good in my clothes. They’re not selling clothes that make me look good, they’re selling body shaming, and I’m not buying it, or  their “slimming jeans” or their pants with the TTT.

    1. Hi Vesta! 

      Thank you so much for stopping through and sharing! WHere are you located? Because I know that the Avenue goes to a 5x as well as Re/Dress NYC… the boutiques usually carry a wider range or can have it special ordered for you! 

      As far as the jeans- I personally never took or take garments like these as body shaming… but I do see your point. I have a pair of these jeans and I like them because they hit higher on me… but it is a personal preference. 

      I would love to see who and what is available for you in your area! 

      1. I’m in Minnesota (2 hours west of the Twin Cities), and so far, the only place I’ve been able to shop in an actual store is Catherine’s. The rest of the time, I have to shop online, and even there, the pickings are slim unless I want solid color tops (I can’t wear blouses that button, they aren’t made for someone with a rack of doom, the shoulders are too wide, and the sleeves are too tight, among other problems). I wear a 5X in tops and a 3X in pants (and don’t do dresses at all, ever).  Woven fabrics just aren’t an option for me, so I usually end up going with cotton/spandex blends for my tops (mostly tees and tunics in prints and solids).
        Believe me, I’ve looked for places to buy clothes, but when your measurements are 62-54-62 and you’re 5′ 8″, you’re pretty much out of luck for finding anything to fit in an actual store.

  2. I hear Linea Pelle is doing a FNO in New York with Henri Bendel.  They have the most beautiful belts that fit plus size girls, while still being the most fashionable belts I have seen for a girl of any size.  I can’t wait, FNO in New York is so exciting!
