Body Positive

#PLUSISNOTEQUAL

Last week Lane Bryant hosted an event in Time’s Square that was supposed to… ummm… I don’t know. Someone tell me what the fuck this event was supposed to do? Did it make Lane Bryant’s clothes less matronly? Did…

A LITTLE REFLECTION AND A BIG THANK YOU

Since I started blogging in April a lot of things have happened, and huge gigantic leaps forward have been made in my body positive journey. My first ever post was about my dreams of wearing a crop top out…

KILLIN’ IT IN MY FAVORITE PLUS SIZE SKIRT

I am so in love with this skirt. It appears to be a normal a-line plus size skirt, but it is the most comfortable, soft, stretchy fabric ever. Every time I put it on I end up keeping in…

GLORIFYING OBESITY

This week on Instagram I was told something about my body positivity that people like to throw out pretty often. I’m told that body positivity is ok, however “glorifying obesity” is dangerous. I of course responded with something short…

I WON’T LET OTHERS DICTATE MY BODY POSITIVE JOURNEY

I’m going to make the introduction to this post quick: I’m a nude model. Some times I’m reminded of the great divide that lies between body positivity and the plus size industry. Recently, a friend of mine let me…

LIVING AND LOVING MY BIG FAT LIFE

A video posted by Fat Girl Flow (@fatgirlflow) on Jun 22, 2015 at 12:14pm PDT For far too long I was held back by the idea that my life would not start until I lost weight. I was sure…

FAT PEOPLE DON’T OWE YOU SHIT

Recently Cosmopolitan.com picked up my campaign for Diversity in Plus Size Bodies (holy shit, I know!). It’s been met with a truly awesome response and people have been so kind and wonderful about it… mostly. Now, I’m not one…

WE EXIST: DIVERSITY IN PLUS SIZE BODIES

Why do I keep seeing the exact same bodies being celebrated in the plus size community??? I’ve been a part of the fat community for about 5 years now (though I have been fat much longer than that), and…

RETHINKING CONFIDENCE

Be confident. That’s what people tell us now. Fat people can be beautiful, you just have to be confident! Confidence is the new pretty. You can achieve anything as long as you’re confident. But while we’re being told this…

MY FAT SO CALLED LIFE

  When I was a kid I used to think that everyone who got to follow trends and dress like the kids on My So Called Life were soooo cool. They all had some effortless appeal to them that…

CAREFREE AND CASUAL

Let’s be super clear about something. When I say “carefree” I mean… braless. Every time. I was heading out to get a shoulder tattoo redone and needed to wear something that was comfy and also accessible for the tattoo…

SICK DAY!

  I’ve been stuck at home for the last two days with this weird allergy/cold/sinus thing I get about twice a year. I always have the hardest time when I’m sick because I feel like it’s me against my…

FAT GIRL SEARCHES FOR HER FLOW

      I’ve got something really important to tell you. I feel like I’ve lead you on a little bit. This is not a style blog. I am not a fatshion expert. Whew, ok… Now that this huge…

Outfits In Motion

Rarely (ie never) do I choose an outfit based on how how damn GOOD I’m gonna look. I know what is aesthetically pleasing. I know how to make myself look perfectly palpable to the masses. But I got a…
