The F@ Diaries: Bum bags

Fanny packs. Bum bags.

Even the words themselves kind of evoke a giggle and a flashback to the nineties. I still remember standing in the video shop with my mom, waiting in line behind a dad with four kids. He wore a black one made out of canvas. It was actually positioned above his butt, and it had key chains hanging off the zipper.

Today, the bum bag has circled back around with a mighty bang, in all its sparkly, studded gloriousity! Read More


Dear Girdle,

We need to talk. I haven’t been comfortable in our relationship for quite some time. Truth be told, when we met I wasn’t feeling good about myself and didn’t know I deserved better. You were just so smooth and I thought I needed you. But the truth is, I don’t. Read More

SPOTLIGHT: Body Love Badass Tess Holliday

DvL14_AuKYtxAT8OSUlXKvJWgyaqYismksJg2PkoN_0Ever since People Magazine featured Super Model Tess Munster on their front cover, she has become recognizable worldwide simply as Tess. As of late, of course, she’s taken on the last name of her fiancé, Nick Holliday, and we must admit Tess Holliday certainly has a nice “ring” to it. Tess is the badass who coined the hashtag “#EffYourBeautyStandards.” And if you haven’t yet started follwing this stunning siren, where have you been? She has close to 1,000,000 Instagram followers whom she helps, just by being herself, explore their journey of self love. Witnessing Tess take on the world with her message that beauty comes in all sizes is mesmerizingly powerful.

FullSizeRenderWe have the pleasure of knowing Tess personally as she has interviewed with us, stayed with us and even watched the Superbowl with us. So believe us when we say, she is everything that you hope and expect her to be. In fact, she’s more than just a #bodypositive power house. She’s a sincerely warm and kindhearted person. For example, after her interview with #Fattitude, Tess took the time to FaceTime a friend of ours who is a huge fan of hers. She’s genuine. She’s gorgeous. She’s funny. And she’s cool.

In the last few months, Tess has gone from successful model to worldwide supermodel. Along with suddenly being thrust into the limelight, she has become a perceived spokeswoman for the #bodypositive movement. It can’t be easy to suddenly have the world critiquing her appearance or making harsh judgments about her personal lifestyle choices, but time and again, she has represented our cause with style, grace, intelligence, and more than a splash of effervescence! We have been thrilled to witness Tess’ success and we are so grateful for all she does to help #Fattitude achieve the same.

Bravo Tess! xoxox

SPOTLIGHT: Body Love Badass Chrystal Bougon

BlissConnection-Chrystal-BougonChrystal Bougon, the badass founder of Curvy Girl Lingerie, is comfortable in her own skin and her hope is that all women, no matter their shape or size, feel the same way. Chrystal sees sexiness in every woman and believes they are all deserving of sensual boudoir experiences – especially those who have been made to believe the shape of their body makes them undeserving of such. She’s a warrior. A champion. And, truth be told she’s a modern Glenda – a good witch who can heal others. Read More
