The era has begun. This is gonna be a 3 part series where i will be exploring not only my own experiences and struggles of being plus sized, but also shedding light on other thick girls and how they feel. There will also be some fashion tips, so stick around and learn what it is or how to be a PHAT GIRL.
At age 24 I gained rapid weight in 2 weeks (yes December wasn’t good to me). The only bad thing about it was the fact that i was unable to deal because this was a new body, new layers, new stretch marks. It killed me everyday when i had to put clothes on and take them off just because they didn’t fit the same way.
I faked it till i made it.
I love my body, I love my big ass, and I love my voluptuous curves. So I’m proud to call myself a PHAT girl.
When i walk into the room, you better be scared, I might not have confidence in my jiggly bits but I do have confidence that I attract enough attention to keep my ego on top.
I recently did a #Spotlight on Serena Williams where she was our #superNatural because of her big and gorgeous physique.
When i looked at what the definition of a plus sized model is, I was appalled because these
b*tches aint thick let alone plus sized. I was out raged because at size 36+ it means I’m really really big.
Each time I ask my husband about my weight or stretch marks, he seems not to care or not to think its a big deal, It’s still hard to believe that men don’t think weight gain is a big deal, but think a certain way about people who have always been big.
There is always a stigma when it comes to sexuality and big women. The names I’ve heard:
BBW, Big momma, code 10, winter blanket, wale, Mc Donalds, etc.
There are a few movements and campaigns I’ve seen that are only about plus sized women. Whether its fashion, health, or even lingerie.
A campaign i recently saw was #Loveyourlines showing off women body and their stretch marks. Nice to think that someone is doing good out there.
Here is a list of my favourite PHAT girls.
- Queen Lathifa
- Mo’nique Imes Jackson
- Mellisa Mc Carthy
- Jill Scott
Are you a PHAT girl. Hit me up and tell me how you feeling.
Always be a #SuperNatural xxoo 🙂 ❤
