The shit just got real. Fattie in tight ass pants.

Emotionally I can't be angry any more this week. I am not going to be.

Today's post is brought to you by me in my first pair of skinny jeans.

Breakdown all black clearly.
Torrid Jeggings size 1
Tank- Walmart? XL
Cardigan-thrifted no brand size 16/18
Black doc martens- size 7

For reference I’m 5’3-4ish dunno how much I weigh. Most my clothes are XL-XXL 14-18-ish. I had on some jewelry earlier but had taken it off. Foto taken by Uniballer of course.

I thought I wanted to talk about fat shaming and whatnot but really, I am just not in the fucking mood anymore.

So how about let's talk about something I am kind of amazed about?

So this skinny jeans things. I have to confess I turned my nose up at this trend since it started. I'm not a tight pants person. I wasn't a tight pants person when I was really thin, not now. It's just never really been my thing.

It started with all of the interesting leggings options. Cut outs, lace, leather, slashes, patterns, exquisite details. The leggings that are out now are the sort i had wet goth fashion dreams about when I was still a chubby baby goth.

It had to lead to the skinny jean cut Jeggings.

My big problem with tight pants has not been an OH NOES I'm too fat to wear tight pants thing. It's always been a proportion and fit thing.

Normally the way pants are cut from crotch to waist band, my body does not follow that line. My waist is way high up under my boobs and my low waist measurements usually mean that I have to get a size or two up which then means the ass. hips and thighs are too big. we all know I do not want.

So when I have wanted pants a lot of the time if it wasn't slacks or twill pants I've bought pull on pants.

It works for me.

I will also say that as I mentioned to Tangerine Jones on Twitter, and that you already know if you've read me for awhile; I lack bootymeats.

I am a fat girl without a fat booty. And by fat booty I mean I have a lack of roundness in the buttocks area so a lot of pants, especially pants that are specifically plus size make my ass sad.

I started this on Friday I wore that outfit on Thursday.

So to sum up the above jeggings are a win. I would like them to have a slightly higher rise but whatever. I dig them.

And holy wow thank you SO MUCH T. You made me cry. Thank you.

And let me point y'all towards awesomeness. Awesomeness in the form of a post by Jiz Lee about (for serious not work safe y'all..no really)Body Positivity. I have to confess having a wee bit of a crush on Jiz. Smart, sexy, kind. Awesome. You will be greeted with a fantastic Adiposivity shot of my homie Mollena too.

I will talk more about Jiz tomorrow.

Uniballer and I celebrated our 7th anniversary together today with an epic meal, a lovely walk and some frolic in Rite Aid. It was lovely.

kay post is done. I'm out of steam and full of seafood. I have yet to wash my hair and whatnot so goodnight my darlings. I hope your Halloween was lovely.

Tomorrow, no rage. Tomorrow is all about love, solidarity and some stuff I want everyone to know.

Until then keep comfy. Love yourselves and other people.

Be awesome my homies and haters, be awesome.

Homo Out.

I am so glad you found a pair that work (and, not that you care what I think of how you look - or should - but I have to say, I find this aesthetic super awesome!) - I have similar pants-structure problems, and am relieved to hear of an experience with ones that actually work! I may try this out. . .
