I'm just a fat gal with a blog and an opinion. Well, lots of opinions.

Fats In Winter Wear!


Since many parts of the world are getting colder right now I thought why not try something different than the old Tank Top Tuesday posts and go in the opposite direction: Winter Wear! I also hope to do a coat shopping guide/options post soon.  Please see below for information on how you can submit your own pics and info for future posts. Thanks.


This week’s Fats in Winter Wear submission comes from Heather!

This is from last christmas! Beautiful sweater from Torrid and the necklace was made by me 🙂 sterling silver cypress leaf with quartz chips and swarovski crystals.  Finding good, attractive, winter clothing for fatties is not an easy task! We’re often stuck with sweaters with pictures of kittens- which is fine if you really love kittens, but it’s just not my style. I hate high necks, so I really love the low neckline and the gathered fabric and this has become my number one favorite winter sweater.

Thank you so much, Heather! It’s true, winter gear for fatties is, well, a pain in the ass at times! This is precisely why I wanted to feature fats in their chosen winter wear. Perhaps we will shake things up and prove that we can work anything out, even when our options are limited. Fatshion, Ho!

    Not at at all on topic, but I just had my first full on fat acceptance rant. Despite an early night bring planned, free beer and food at a lock in was too good to miss. feminism somehow came on topic, cue my soliloquy on equality. yeah!
