My first foray into fat fashion was through the Livejournal community Fatshionista several years ago. It was there that I started to see fat girls like me share their outfits through OOTD (outfit of the day) photos. They were beautiful, and they all loved fashion.
The community encompassed a lot of things, especially when it was thriving. There, people talked about self-esteem and self-worth; the struggle to find beauty within ourselves despite not being “conventionally” attractive; discrimination; life tips and stories; fat politics; the Fat Acceptance and Health At Every Size movements; living while fat; and, of course, fashion.
Although I’d always been interested in fashion, I never quite felt like I “deserved” to be part of the conversation because I wasn’t thin. Fatshionista and all of the community members helped change that. I couldn’t be more thankful for that community introducing me into the incredible world of fat fashion (“fatshion”).
Thankfully, these days, plus-size fashion and style is becoming more prominent and existing in spaces besides Livejournal communities.
