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.

Me in "My Favorite Girls Tee" from Fashion Nova, sold for $15. (As always, I'm not receiving anything in exchange for this post. I just like the shirt!)

It's a crop top, but it's pretty long on my short torso. I'm wearing it in today's daily selfie, which is taken from an angle in which you can see the belly action, if you want a better idea of whether it might work for you.

A colorfully reverberating GIRLS crop top seemed like the perfect way to start the summer!

Anyway! As always, all subjects related to fat fashion are on topic, but if you want a topic for discussion: Have you bought anything new for summer? Or winter, depending on where you're sitting in 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.
