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.

My new favorite shirt, care of Torrid:
This isn't an overtly political shirt, but trust that I am wearing it because there are a lot of damn people in this country—including and especially the president—who could use a Schoolhouse Rock! refresher course on how shit works.
Anyway! As always, all subjects related to fat fashion are on topic, but if you want a topic for discussion: Got a favorite political clothing item?
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.
