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.

Two threads ago, I mentioned having purchased a couple of t-shirts from ModCloth during their big 70% off sale. Here I am sporting one of the new tees I snagged, along with my oft-pictured burgundy moto jacket:

Honestly, I think ModCloth's t-shirts are overpriced for their quality at regular cost, so I'm really glad when I can get them at a discounted price.

Anyway! As always, all subjects related to fat fashion are on topic, but if you want a topic for discussion: T-shirts! Do you love them? Can you leave them?

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.
