Our Mission
SSBBW / FA Quote of the Moment

"What do I like about being an SSBBW? There are a couple of things that come to mind. I love that SSBBW's seem to represent all the goodness and kindness of the human race. We exude love; love for people, love for food, love for life. Also, on a personal note, I have found an advantage to being an SSBBW. Our society is shallow. Putting looks and thinness above all other qualities. As an SSBBW, we have a way of weeding out those shallow people, and find the "good" people; the people that dont care about size, and see us for the people we are inside." ~ Ceci [SSBBW]

"I loved your review on pants but I must tell you the best pants ever are the new jeans at Catherines called The New Knit jeans.

I haven't worn jeans in about 25 years because they were just not comfortable on someone my size. I am now currently into a 4x and these jeans are wonderful. They feel a little snug going on, but with in a few moments they have stretched to fit and go with your body. They don't make you look like a sausage, or have the wide wide pant legs that some larger womens pants seem to have. Why do they feel if we have a belly that means we have huge legs too? So far I have gotten a few girl friends to go and try on these jeans, they haven't worn jeans in years either. Both promptly bought a few in their size. It sure makes you feel sexy when you buy clothes that not only fit, but feel great." [Sheila]
