Fat Fashion

This is your semi-regular thread in which fat women can share pix, make recommendations for clothes they love, ask questions of other fat women about where to locate certain plus-size items, share info about sales, talk about what jeans cut at what retailer best fits their body shapes, discuss how to accessorize neutral colored suits, share stories of going bare-armed for the first time, brag about a cool fashion moment, whatever.

Well, since I've been sick for ELEVENTY MILLION YEARS, I definitely haven't been feeling like buying any new clothes, nor taking pictures of myself. But I thought everyone else might be ready for a fresh Fat Fashion thread, so here it is!

Right now, I'm wearing one of my favorite red sweaters, and here's a picture of me wearing it from last December:

It still looks the same and so do I!

I'm always so excited when fall rolls around and the temperatures start cooling off so I can bring out my sweaters again. Love a day where a sweater and jeans are the perfect outfit.

Anyway! As always, all subjects related to fat fashion are on topic, but if you want a topic for discussion: What's your favorite fall item? Have you bought anything new for fall this year? Or spring, if you're in another part of the world!

Have at it in comments! Please remember to make fat women of all sizes, especially women who find themselves regularly sizing out of standard plus-size lines, welcome in this conversation, and pass no judgment on fat women who want to and/or feel obliged, for any reason, to conform to beauty standards. And please make sure if you're soliciting advice, you make it clear you're seeking suggestions—and please be considerate not to offer unsolicited advice. Sometimes people just need to complain and want solidarity, not solutions.
