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.

Cheery duds for my therapy appointment!

I really loved the outer piece I'm wearing here when I saw it in a photo somewhere, and I searched everywhere until I finally found it — at Montgomery Ward!

It's at the end of its season, so the bad news is that a bunch of the sizes are sold out, but the good news is that, if it's still available in your size, you'll be able to grab it for a discounted price. I managed to get it at the discounted price while there was an additional promotion going on that lowered the price even further. Woot!

Here, I'm wearing it over this Double Layered Chiffon Cami from Torrid. That color is almost sold out, but if you search for "chiffon cami" at Torrid's site, you'll find a lot more options. Torrid's also currently having a 25% off sale online, btw.

Anyway! As always, all subjects related to fat fashion are on topic, but if you want a topic for discussion: What's in your closet that you wear if/when you want to dress yourself in something cheery?

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.
