Swimsuit Season?! Oh Hell Yes!
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.
An Amy Schumer Update
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.
Chubstr Turns 6!
TFGS doesn't discriminate and celebrates all plus size, body posi achievements including the birthday of Chubstr! The plus size men's outlet celebrated with LA's The Plus Bus, which I believe has started carrying menswear in honor of the anniversary.
