I'm a really big girl and I nothing looks even remotely flattering on me. I can't even bring myself to go clothes shopping anymore because it brings me to tears every time. Any advice on getting past that?

Oh my darling. 

First of all, say these words to yourself: “FUCK FLATTERING”. The whole concept of “flattering” is rooted in mainstream beauty ideals that women have been torturing themselves to fit into for far, far too damn long. 

Secondly, decide what sort of style you want to wear. Goth? Mori girl? Pastel princess? What styles call to you? What styles make you happy whenever you see examples of them?

Thirdly, keep repeating “FUCK FLATTERING” to yourself. No, I’m serious. You need to keep telling yourself this, because you are a wonderful, magical girl, and you deserve to like (love!) yourself.

Fourthly, Start searching the internet for plus size fashion retailers. I know there’s a list that periodically goes around on tumblr that lists a bunch of them, and if it crosses my dash again, I’ll reblog it. 

Fifth of all, start accumulating clothes that are in the style you like, AND WEAR THEM. Know that you are dressed the way you want. 

If people dare tell you that what you’re wearing is “not flattering”, or if your own body image demons start up a chorus of insults, hold your head high, remind yourself that you deserve to look the way you want to, and that I, your Auntie Jilli, have faith that someday you will believe that.

Other peeps reading this: do you have fashion links and retailers for big girls? Please reblog this post with those links!

Once again, my darling anon: you are a wonderful girl, and you deserve to look the way you want to.

Okay I’m sorry for this rant but a blog that I used to follow (and I’m sure who many of you follow as well) just totally plagiarized my saved URL page that I took the time to write out myself and make it’s literally the same wording except they changed one or two words around in the sentence to make it look like it’s their own. I’m sorry for this negativity but I really cant keep quite about this and let it brush under the rug because I find this very wrong. 

I do not like having any of my writing of any kind stolen and changed around no matter how big or small it is.

I will not call out that blog here because I’m trying to be the bigger and more mature person about this but this is not the first time that I have had an incident with this same blog/person. 

I will not report this if that saved URL page gets taken down or if that person actually uses their own head to come up with something of their own

If any of you are willing to reblog this so the word gets spread around I will be forever indebted to you.

Plagiarism of any kind is not acceptable and should be made aware of it’s not just art that can get stolen but writing as well and it’s not cool!

Thank you.
