Have a look at hipsandcurves.com, asos curve and forever21 plus. I haven’t bought from them before, but a lot of my followers have suggested them for plus size clothing.
I’ll leave this open and hopefully someone has some other suggestions :)
Thanks for your message!
Thank you :) my aim with this blog and my others is to help people to be more accepting of themselves and to love themselves at every size. Self esteem is important and I hope that I encourage a lot of people to feel better within themselves with what I post :)
Select images from South African photographer Jodi Bieber’s series Real Beauty, photographing everyday women in South Africa in their underwear, leaving the images untouched so as to counter the incredibly narrow ideals of commercialized beauty propagated largely through popular media.We’re getting used to seeing big women on occasion now. But an old woman? Go old woman! Go Jodi Bieber!
This is perfect!

I’m so glad that GPC can help you with your confidence. Just remember that you are a beautiful and amazing human being, no matter your size. You’re wonderful :) Thanks for writing :)
With parents, I think they just want the best for their child and, with weight being such a touchy subject, they don’t really know how to approach it, that’s why, I think, they say “Oh, you’d be much prettier if you lost weight.” You know, everyone wants to be pretty, and I think parents think that is usually the way to go about it, but it often does more harm than good.
Not to mention all of the “GET FIT BY FRIDAY” and “HOW TO PACK A HEALTHY “SLIM KID” LUNCH!” type garbage that is just everywhere these days…
As for your class mates, it’s none of their business, and they should focus more on their own bodies rather than bothering to be nasty about yours.
I don’t even really need to explain doctors. You could walk into a doctors surgery and have a gaping head wound and they would sit you down to talk to you about your weight.
Let your parents know that when they say that you’d be prettier if you lost weight, say that it hurts your feelings and makes you feel like you’re not pretty now and how damaging it can be. I’m sure they’ll be supportive of you.
Also, you’re still young, there’s a pretty big chance that you’ll lose that “puppy fat” as you mature.
The most important thing is to do what feels right by you. If YOU want to lose some weight for your own reasons, health conditions or just because you want to, go for it, but if you’re happy and healthy the way you are, then why should you change? There isn’t anything wrong with being plump.
Don’t listen to your peers because they’re just nasty and it will serve you better to close your ears to them.
I suggest talking to your parents though, let them know how you feel and that you’d appreciate their support on your body love journey :)
