Before I learned that I could be fat and stylish, summer was a rough time. Trying to stay cool in 90 degree weather while still hiding my arms, belly and thighs made it close to impossible. When I discovered other plus-size women who were comfortable in showing some skin, it made me feel like I could too. Sometimes all you need is a little inspiration.
