-Melissa writes about fat fashion and opens up a thread (which is now closed, but is a great resource) to share pictures, recommend brands, and ask questions. I also like Sarah’s reflections on that post and her experiences putting together a wardrobe from very limited resources.
Balancing fashion and religion with plus size fashion blogger Sakinah Azman.
