This is amazing!
The intent of this group of photos is to illustrate the countless comments fat women are told by their peers, elders and countless random people on how exactly they should dress. We’re told our bodies are offensive. That the only way to resolve the suggested “problem” is to cover up, to make ourselves more appealing by putting clothes over our stretch marks, our cellulite, our so-called “imperfections”. We see magazines with How to Get Your (Very Unattainable) Perfect Bikini Body as highlights and heaven forbid a fat woman with a stomach be seen in a bikini. We are encouraged to buy cover ups to go over our sad one piece because “no one wants to see that big of a stomach”.
People have told me my shirt is too low-cut “for a fat girl to be wearing”. People have told me “those horizontal stripes make you look even worse”.
People have told me that I need to wear pants instead of shorts in 100+ degree Texas weather because my cellulite is showing.
People think they have the right to dress you as a mannequin because they feel better when you aren’t visible under the clothes they drape over you.
You do you, you dress you, you do whatever the hell you want and what makes you happy.
And for all the people who have contributed to this ridiculous notion that we can’t seem to dress ourselves, this is a not so subtle FUCK YOU.

I love these thigh highs!
This is the “Beth Ann” honeycomb style by Kix’ies.
I’m well above the “weight” limit for the size “D” and they fit me wonderfully, The band is genius (it stretches, flexes and really grips… but, is still super comfy!) They don’t slide down, roll down or fall down… and they don’t need garters to hold them up. They are durable and come in a variety of wonderful styles (more to come in March, including the “Lola” which features a classic backseam!).
You can get $5 off by using code: Vivi
Try them. You’re going to fall in love.
Everyone (in a variety of sizes) that I’ve told about Kix’ies just LOVES them!
They ship internationally, too!
