i’m beautiful, whut whut
Hi. My name (at least virtually) is Elisabeth. I’m 5’5” and 250 pounds. I also have an A-Cup bra-size, which has always been strange for me, since it seems that the main thing that is sexualized about us fat girls is our boobs, which I don’t seem to have an abundance of.
The dress I’m wearing is from the ASOS maternity line. It’s the first time I’ve ever tried a maternity dress. I spent most of my young life loving a very femme practically fairy-tale princess-like fashion ascetic. Owning an actual dress was my dream, but no clothing shop carried a dress that was made in such a way as to properly fit my tiny chest and my big big big everywhere else. I’ve been living in China for the last few years, and getting stuff custom made by the tailors here is super easy, so at this point in my life I own more than enough dresses to make up for lost time.
However, finding a retail dress that fit me so much as the one pictured does was a pretty big deal for me. When it comes right down to it, I don’t care that much that it’s maternity, and I wish the idea had crossed my mind sooner. I could have been wearing dresses all through out college, instead of jeans that I hated.
So, anyway, the main point is that I’ll gladly wear maternity clothes and be proud of it. The label doesn’t mean a thing. Looking at something and knowing that it fits and makes me happy with my own appearance means everything.
Anybody know anybody who’d be interested in some womens’ size 3x clothes? I’m going through my closet, and there’s a few things I’m not interested in keeping - mostly shirts, but probably a couple pairs of pants and a skirt or two, too. I suppose I could just take them to a consignment shop, but I’d rather they go to someone who needs ‘em, y’know?
Anyway, drop me a line if you want to be mailed a box of clothes. :)
