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 Cia in Scandinavia! And a Lovely submission it is:

This picture was taken at a Christmas market in my little town last weekend. My friend, who took the picture, and I like to dress up for all town events and pretend that we live in Stars Hollow. A little silly, I know, but it gives us joy. The snow is unusually late this year (so I could wear those cute shoes), but it was really cold, so we got into the cozy Christmas spirit anyway.

Coat: H&M (and a steal at half price! It was from their regular selection, ie for non-fat people, but it’s just a little snug at the biggest size and sometimes I just choose to live with that.)
Dress: Indiska – they don’t have a plus size section, but a lot of their clothes are really fat friendly. I could grow in this! 😀 I don’t know if they are outside Scandinavia, though.
Tights: Lindex
Shoes: El Naturalista (they’re organic!)
Hat: Vero Moda
Scarf: Glitter

It’s a great idea to write about this, because winter clothing is a special challenge as a fat! Living this far north can only layer so much before the hard winter sets in and we all need thick, sturdy coats and those coats are few and far between in plus sizes! I’m still searching for one that I can comfortably close while wearing thick wool sweaters underneath.

Hugs from Cia 🙂

Thank you so much, Cia! That coat is gorgeous and I love your picture with the vibrant red accents beside you…lovely!

    Cia: Thanks, hun! You were the first and so far the only submission. You did set the bar a bit high maybe, with your super stylish self!

    O noes! They should see me on one of those days when it’s cold as hell, but I have to layer sweaters instead of wearing a proper coat, because I don’t own anything that matches what I’m wearing underneath. That would even things out. ;P

    Cia: I say forget about matching, warmth takes priority always! I sort of feel like a coat is more of the wrapping on a gift though. Like I may have a fabulous or ugly coat, but what’s underneath is a big surprise! Thanks again for your submission.
