I think plus size fashion/fatshion bloggers are such a wonderful resource for all women when it comes to accepting your body as is or experimenting more with fashion. Just seeing someone with a similar body to you - or a body that society tells you is wrong, and needs to be covered - playing around with fashion and taking risks, has certainly helped me to feel better about myself.
While everyone is at different stages in their self-confidence, bloggers such as Kirsty of Fatty Unbound is 100% confident. Her incredible style and positive message led her to be interviewed by Cherry Healey for Cherry's Body Dilemmas on BBC3, which brought the acceptance message to the mainstream. Her section comes around 25 minutes in, and it's so refreshing to see her talk frankly about her experience as a fat woman.
Kirsty is a vintage and car boot sale addict, and loves a fashion bargain. Happily for us, she's also a fan of Yours Clothing! I got to do a mini q&a with her, and here's what she has to say:
You recently were featured on BBC3, talking about fat acceptance with Cherry Healey. How did you find the experience and what was the response like?
What do you think of Yours Clothing? I know you're a huge bargain hunter, and so are we!
Do you have any favourite Yours items on the site?
What fashion advice would you give our lovely Yours customers?
