Finding The Right Fit With Torrid Jeans

I’ve got money in these jeans, so they fit kind of snug. In my whole entire adult (and teen) life I never thought that my belly button would make an appearance. Plagued by memories of ill fitting lowrise jeans that caused severe muffin tops as a 13 year old, I figured there were no lowrise jeans for big girls. Those jeans were not made for bellies. Maybe it’s just me, but it seems like a

Back To School Plus Size Clothes

Back to school clothes shopping as a plus-size teen back in the day…. yikes Forever21 Plus asked me to create a back to school look and holy shit was I triggered thinking about how hard back to school shopping used to be for me as a kid and teenager.

None of us are made the same and comparing yourself to someone else’s

The Chunky & Funky Plus Size Retailers and Plus Size Designer Roundup

Killer Mike once said, “I’m fat, but I dress nice.” It seems like Killer Mike and I have a lot in common. Many moons ago, options were pretty darn limited for all the chunky girls and women out there. There was Lane Bryant, Ashley Stewart, Torrid, and a whole lot of mu mu dresses. Shopping was always a nightmare because some lines only carry up to a 10 or 12. On top of all that,
