Hot Topic is now offering their much beloved Disney swimwear in plus sizes (some are available all the way up to size 28, I hear) AND we've got hottie blogger Sarah Sapora showing off her curves in an itty bitty bikini all over the news!
So if you're ready (or not) the Summer is starting NOW! Read more about Sarah, as well as the HotTopic Disney bikinis below.
I only recently discovered The Fitness Marshall (I know, I'm the worst) and love his moves as well as his instinct to include different size backup dancers. Plus, what a beautiful surprise to see my girl Whitney Way Thore, from TLC's hit show "My Big Fat Fabulous Life" in his latest dancercise video for Usher's Yeah!
Watch (and get your but up to dance it out with them) below
Uber finds itself in hot water again as a fat driver Fat Shames model Tess Holliday, as seen on her Instagram. She captured the encounter on video, and captioned the post as follows:
Hey @uber I don't pay more to use your "black car" service to be told that there's no way I could possibly be healthy because I'm fat & then questioning it. No one should have to tolerate this at any level of the services you offer. I'm fat. I also have a fat wallet & will no longer be using your services. Ever. Also after I told him I was healthy he turned the radio off & changed the subject. #putmymoneywheremymouthis#uberdriver #uber
Edited to add: saying my driver is fat was obviously being used as a descriptor & not to insult him. Also I did not show his face or use his name when filming, it was to be able to show what I deal with daily & why this behavior is unacceptable from anyone.
I don't usually like to include Amy Schumer when discussing Plus Size matters, but that's my problem, not yours. As a "Curvy Woman in Hollywood", she should be included in the PS conversation. But especially as she continues to be the target of body-shaming while unwaveringly defending herself, Schumer has solidified her place among us big girls.
Amy Schumer graced the cover of InStyle magazine's "Beauty Issue" flaunting a white Lauren Ralph Lauren swimsuit. While the comedian received a lot of love, one swimsuit designer was not so kind. In response, Schumer took to Instagram to show off her other swimsuits, most of which were sexy af two-pieces.
The other big Schumer update: she has stepped down from the highly anticipated live-action Barbie movie where she was slated to play the titular doll due to scheduling conflicts.
No word yet on who will replace her, but here's hoping it's another curvy lady.

This is HUGE news!
New York Fashion Week - a week of glitz, glamour, and couture - has been increasing their Plus Size visibility inch by inch each year and this year, according to AOL, 27 plus models walked down the most sought after runways!
It looked like many Plus Models walked for multiple designers, and some designers (like Christian Siriano) used a whole lot of plus models, yet most of the old-school designers chose not to even include one.
Check out 8 models and designers that extended a welcome as well as their sizes (below).
Sports Illustrated: Swimsuit Edition is extra curvy this year with a Kate Upton on the cover (she considers herself curvy, and is a bit bigger than your average straight-sized model), plus ads for Lane Bryant featuring model Denise Bidot and her stretch marks, and of course former SI covergirl Ashley Graham modeling for Swimsuits for all. But the biggest surprise of all (pun intended) was Hunter McGrady in a body-painted swimsuit!
