SSBBW / FA Quote of the Moment

"Being attracted to a SSBBW, I can say with honesty and certainty that I find everything about a SSBBW to be a beautiful thing. From the large and soft curves of her body, to her large and open heart. A large woman often sees life as others do not; seeing everyday as precious, every moment as a moment to laugh and love, and those around them as people to treasure. Being a SSBBW is a blessing. With lots to offer, every large woman is unique, yet not alone. I am proud to be a man who loves and appreciates all you have to offer. Be proud of what you have, flaunt your beautiful curves, and let the world see that big smile." ~ John [FA]

Plus Size Halloween Costumes

Fall is upon us and if you're anything like me you are in your element. Leaves falling, cool temperatures, cute boots and sweaters, and pumpkin spice are everywhere. And the countdown to the very best holiday, Halloween, is on. I'll admit it; I'm a Halloween freak. I live for spooky stories, horror movies, jack o' lanterns, and costumes. But as a plus size woman it is admittedly very hard to find an attractive Halloween costume that is well made and actually fits. But I've done the research for you and found the five best places to get a plus size Halloween costume.

Fat Positive Blogs

Blogs are a wonderful source of information. I have found them to be a useful Fat resource, especially when it comes to body positivity and fatshion. It is so helpful to see what clothes look like on bodies that are shaped like ours. It is also helpful to know that there are others out there who have the same life struggles that we have. You might get a different perspective on how to deal with things, based on the experiences of others.

I recently joined a group of plus size bloggers. We are taking one fashion topic a month and doing a blog hop. Our first topic was leggings. We all did a blog about it, linked our blogs, and published them at the same time. It is so great to see the many different ways an item can be worn on a fat person, from smaller plus to super plus.

Here is a link to my blog. In it, you will find the links to all the other blogs.
