Today I’m grateful for:

The Fatkini & GabiFresh

Being fat and plus size, or whatever you wanna call it, and also having a long torso (thank God I don’t have large breasts or this post might be a lot longer and a lot whinier) has meant that I’ve been destined to really not quite fit into any bathing suit for years. And yes, I know, most women hate shopping for swimsuits, but coming from the land of frump and “Oh my God … what is that weird skirt thing?” and “Really? That was the best fluck*ng floral they could find?!” makes shopping for a bathing suit a much bigger challenge. Pun intended. So today, I’m giving thanks and shouts out to Gabi Fresh and the acceptance of the Fatkini. That isht is here y’all.

Dear World. I’m Not Really An Hourglass.
