    One other question.So I recently bought this shirt that is mostly backless. However, I don't have a bra that doesn't show with it.Are there any good plus-size backless bras.The only one I can really find via Google is this one: http://www.barenecessities.com/fashion-forms-go-bare-ultimate-boost-backless-strapless-bra-16540_product.htm?pf_id=FashionForms16540&search=Not sure if I quite trust adhesive for my DDs. Has anyone had any luck with these? I seem to recall they used to make ones with just plastic, see-through backs. Do they still make those?

    Hello and welcome to another edition of #TransparentTuesday! During #TransparentTuesday, we remove the rosy filters of social media and share real life.  Between travel and tonsil abscesses and ER visits, I broke my workout streak. Balance and consistency are things I’m working hard on, so the workouts on my calendar felt so good to cross off. Honestly, it’s one of the few areas on my life where I felt in-control. I felt stronger and like I had more endurance. Even when I was traveling and sick, I noticed I wasn’t huffing and puffing as I lugged my bags through the…

    Hi,So, I've recently gotten comfortable enough in my body to start dressing a little more sexy. And, as it is swimsuit season, I decided it was time to get myself a sexy swimsuit. Only I can't decide. I'm leaning towards a bikini, for the first time, though I also saw a couple sexy one pieces I liked.So if people could tell me which of the options below they like best, I'd really appreciate it.1. http://www.swimsuitsforall.com/Swim-Sexy-Darling-Dot-Plus-Size-Underwire-Bra-High-Waist-Bikini2. http://www.swimsuitsforall.com/Swim-Sexy-Scarlet-Crochet-Plus-Size-Tshirt-Bra-Bikini3.

  • Torrid coming to Canada

    23 May 2015 | 8:01 pm
    I saw a sign in the Toronto Eaton Centre the other day that mentioned new stores that would be opening in the mall in September 2015, and Torrid was one of them. I then Googled "Torrid coming to Canada" and found out it was indeed true, and would be the first shop of theirs in Canada with hopes to open more.I know lots of American posters here have major issues with Torrid, and I agree with some of the issues. I especially think that it is overpriced for what it sells and I know the overpricing will probably be even more ridiculous in Canada since the exchange rate is so crappy right now.That…

    So I know I asked about Southwest before and the early bird check-in was super helpful since I was able pick a row and my friends were able to sit next to me. The seatbelt ended up not fitting (by 2-3 inches!) and I had asked for a extender but both times the attendents forgot I asked so I went seatbelt-less to and from. Which I don't mind but I don't think I'll be so lucky this time and I'm traveling alone. Has anyone (preferably size US26+) had experience with these airlines- their seats, seat belts, attitude from attendents or trouble at the gate? I've researched SeatGuru and these are my…

    This year marks the 10th birthday of WordPress.com and our parent company, Automattic. We are proud to have served this community of millions: from writers, photographers, artists, and small and large publishers, to business owners and entrepreneurs. A quick bit of history: WordPress itself started as an open source project in 2003. WordPress co-founder Matt Mullenweg then built our company, and the free, hosted version — WordPress.com, what you see now — opened for business in the summer of 2005. Ten years, 2.5 billion posts, and 3 billion comments later, Automattic is stronger…

    You recently accused me of wanting you to be fat. Here's what I've been thinking. . . . Long after we part ways, I'll remember the sound of your voice, the tender and emotional moments we shared, those times we burst out laughing together. I'll have little memory of what you weighed.I have no investment in wanting you, according to your eating disorder, to be fat. What I care about is your brain, that it's nourished sufficiently for you to think clearly and be yourself again. I'd like to see you return to the you you were before this ugly illness hijacked your anatomy and convinced you to…

  • Helping Patients with Binge Eating Disorder Drop the Weight (Mentality)

    22 Apr 2015 | 5:31 am
    A woman, who reported she struggles with Binge Eating Disorder, contacted me recently online. She was scheduled to participate in a medical weight-loss program but wondered if she should address her BED first. Unfortunately, this woman is not the only person with BED who has fallen prey to the weight-loss industry.One of the most challenging things in my work with patients with BED is disavowing them of the diet and weight mentality. Most patients come in with a significant diet history and, despite many failed diet attempts, are intent on losing weight in treatment via the latest diet…

    A couple of weeks ago, I had the honor of speaking at Miami-Dade College for Women's History Month.

Here's a panoramic shot of the students with their projects, their professor, and me:So wonderful, right? And here are some of the individual projects close up. The first is a visual representation of the emotional pain and body distortion inherent to anorexia:The second collage highlights the relationship between eating disorders and…

    It is hot as hell outside and my shorts game is pretty weak, so it’s likely you’ll continue to see lots of short dresses from me in the summer. I was watching “Bridesmaids” for like the 200th time and now every time I wear a short dress when it’s hot, I think of this (and not in a pervy way, just practical!) I think this dress will look great on everybody. It’s a great color, it’s a great length, it’s fun. You can twirl, you can – you can move in it, you can spread your legs apart.
