Ok, so we all know that I am a thrift store whore, but certain things I don’t believe in thrifting and swimsuits is on that list. There’s something I don’t trust about that–could be my raw vajay going where someone else’s has been. I don’t want it. So I don’t mind…

Spring Fatshion: The Denim Shirtdress

My favorite trend for Spring is the denim shirtdress. Dress it up or down. Wear it with boots, sneakers, flats, and sandals. It looks great with scarves, jackets, and cardigans when it gets chilly at night. Cinch it up with a belt and you are good to go! How else world you accessorize this piece?

Rompers, Judgment, and Hypocrisy: Wear Whatever the Hell You Want

I used to be very judgmental of women for what they wore: You’re dressing too young. You aren’t a little girl. You don’t look professional. No one will take you seriously. Those leggings aren’t doing anything for your figure. That shirt looks trashy; it’s way too tight. Don’t you think those heels are a little […]

3 Reasons it’s Hard to be a Fatty on the Move

Contrary to popular belief, many fat people are physically active, and enjoy sports, dance, yoga, Pilates, and other forms of exercise. I like canoeing, and ballet, and walking around the city. I like to go to shows and dance. With the amount of criticism fat people receive for allegedly not caring for our bodies, coupled with the […]

Swimsuit Followup and Poll

My two new suits from Forever21 came in the mail yesterday. I was dubious because I’ve not had great experience with that store in terms of quality and sizing. They notoriously “size down” in that I am a street size XL or 1X anywhere else, but I am a 2X at F21. I went ahead anyhow and […]

The Fat Word’s 2014 Swimsuit Roundup

Here in Seattle, the sun is shining, and it’s hitting 60 degrees. That means it’s time for us to emerge from our wintertime flood bunkers, squinty-eyed, clad in skirts and sandals in celebration of the fact that it has stopped. Fucking. Raining. Soon, it will be warm enough to venture into the many bodies of […]

No LBD

Help dress me!

Every year I attend a charity auction to raise money for the scholarship fund at my school. I have done the LBD in all of its infinite variations and want to do something different this year. I have two outfit ideas and was hoping to get some feedback from my fashionable readers. POLYVORE, ACTIVATE! These two […]

5 Things Shiloh Doesn’t Hate: March Edition

Believe it or not, dear readers, but I don’t hate everything. There are certain things I am quite fond of, and I want to share some of them with you to help break up the repetitive, indignant ranting that makes up the bulk of the content on TFW. I can be positive! The constant hating […]

Why I Haven’t Written My First Fat Blog

I’m too busy. It’s conference week. I’m working through some family stuff. The truth is, I don’t like the word fat. When I saw the web site up, IT, FAT, had the ability to shock me. I found I didn’t want the word associated with me. It surprised me how strongly I felt. I was […]

Fat, Foxy Style — A Pinterest Roundup

Adorable animal clothing need not be relegated solely to the closets of cute, thin hipsters. Fat hipsters must also have access to such adorableness. We need not shy away from attention-grabbing graphics and dresses with cute prints. How cute is this skirt? Fox in the flowers, indeed! What I really like about this skirt is […]

JC Penney and the Fat Lady Unicorn

Because the 86th Academy Awards were somewhat lackluster this year, I ended up paying more attention to the advertisements. One advertisement in particular caught my attention, encouraging women to shop at JC Penney. I felt like a cryptozoologist waiting patiently in a bush for days, suddenly glimpsing a rare creature whose existence and behaviors were […]

Chromatophobia Exposure Therapy: Fat Girls Wearing Cobalt Blue

Spring is upon us, and we will soon run out of excuses to wear our black-on-grey-on-black outfits. A lot of bigger gals shy away from bright colors for two reasons: We are ashamed of our bodies and don’t want to draw attention to them, and We just can’t find cute clothes in bright colors (society’s […]

The Strange Economy of the Fatshion Industrial Complex

I was talking to my good friend Danica the other night about the seemingly unfair cost structure for plus-sized clothing. It’s fairly common knowledge that an item of plus size clothing costs more than its straight size counterpart, but why? Is it the cost of the cloth? A manufacturing difference? Availability? Not enough buyers? I […]
