Love For Love Honey Lingerie

I always find it exciting to stumble upon new plus size lingerie retailers, like Love Honey. So when they reached out to me to collaborate on a review post I was excited to browse their online store. Not only do they offer lingerie in a variety of sizes but they also offer sex positive toys, including their new collection from Broad City. Click through to see more pictures and read my full review of this brand and their collection of goodies. Continue reading “Love For Love Honey Lingerie”

“Big Gal Yoga” Book Review

As a fan of yoga who also happens to be plus size & a fat activist, I am proud to display “Big Gal Yoga: Poses & Practices to Celebrate Your Body & Empower Your Life” by Valerie Sagun on one of my coffee tables. The book offers something for yogis of every size but in an activity that is usually represented by ultra thin instructors, having Valerie guide us all through the poses is refreshing. This book made me feel better about my body when most other exercise based books have made me feel worse about it. So here’s to my fully visible, yoga loving, belly rolls!

The Beginning of 2017’s Swimwear Summer

Last year may have been my first Summer of Swimwear but this year I am back and even more confident than before. So I’m excited to be out by the pool for the full 2.5 months it is open during the summer. My first journey out to the pool was in this gorgeous floral print high neck bikini from LoraletteContinue reading “The Beginning of 2017’s Swimwear Summer”

Dressing Down Cocktail Dresses

Here’s the thing, I like to dress up. I prefer wearing skirts and dresses but it often doesn’t suit the weather or the occasion dress code. So I have started exploring ways to dress down cocktail dresses and evening wear, without coming across way too extra.  Continue reading “Dressing Down Cocktail Dresses”

When The Dress Is Perfect, Except…

I love this dress so much! Except, for one thing… it shows off way too much cleavage. I love the length of the dress, the v-neck, the bodycon design, the all black with lace details, the arm length, everything! But then I realized the center is sheer and it is 100% not appropriate to wear to work, which is where I hoped to wear it most often. Continue reading “When The Dress Is Perfect, Except…”

Classic Black High Waist Pant

Personally, I love a high waist pant. I think they are more comfortable to wear and I think they emphasize the curve of a woman’s body. However, for exactly that reason, I have not always loved them. The more I embrace my body, the more I embrace wearing clothes that I used to avoid.  Continue reading “Classic Black High Waist Pant”

CLEO by Panache – The Fun Collection

As I will discuss more in my next post featuring Panache, they have a few distinct collections. This blog post talks about CLEO by Panache, which I would define as their fun line. Some might refer to it as their younger line but I don’t like defining things that way. Perhaps we could meet in the middle and call it their trendier collection. Continue reading “CLEO by Panache – The Fun Collection”

Panache Black – The Sexy Collection

Panache has three main collections; Panache, Panache Black, and Cleo by Panache. They also have Sculptresse which is their plus size based brand. This blog post focuses on the Black Collection from Panache, specifically the Ardour set. It is their sexier collection. The one made for those who want to show off a little bit. Keep in mind Panache is a large cup brand, not necessarily a plus size brand.

You Are Not Body Positive If…

Here’s the thing, a lot of people focus on the sentence, “body positivity is for everyone” and then completely drop any critical analysis around what being body positive means. So I’ve written a post about 6 things that I have seen in the bopo community that aren’t body positive at all. In fact, some of these things are downright oppressive. I talk about the ways the movement can be racist, ableist and more. So if you really want to be body positive, make sure you never do any of these six things.
