I’ve seen CorsetAuthority before and I’m impressed! Thank you for this helpful message!
At 195 lbs I’m the heaviest I’ve ever been in my life. But damn if this corset doesn’t make me feel pretty. (Sorry for the cut off head, bad hair day.)
Oh, Jesus Christ.
You know, I knew I was going to get a message like this someday. I just knew it.
I’m sure you mean well, but there are so many problematic elements to your message, that here’s my dissection of it:
1. Fat is an adjective. It is an adjective that has had stigma for far too long. I desire looking up to and admiring fellow fat women, but I can’t use “curvy” or “plus-size” considering those words have lost some meaning. Google those aforementioned words, and you’ll get a few images of fat girls that are drowned among women that are smaller than a size US ten. I will reclaim the word and you can pry it out of my dead, chubby hands, I will not let it go.
2. “Anorexic thin” is both an insulting and inaccurate phrase. Fat people can have eating disorders. And it isn’t that surprising considering the vitriol they are thrown at frequently. Let me repeat this once more: fat people can have eating disorders like thin people. Fat and thin people with eating disorders should not be demonized for that. If anything, it sounds like you’re blaming women with eating disorders for the low self esteem millions of women have, which, you know, is problematic to say the least.
3. And please don’t say that you disagree with fat women calling themselves fat. They have a right to their identities and should not be policed by anyone over that.
4. Also, fat people can be healthy. Not that matters. And how can you tell if the people here or me are healthy just by looking at our images. You don’t know anything about us. And even if any of us are unhealthy, guess what? So what? That’s their business and if anyone else makes it there business, well, I would think that’s something called “ableism.”
5. You want women to love and embrace themselves but you also want them to limit themselves for your comfort. I’m sorry, but that is not the body positivity you like to think that is.
Sorry but good day to you, anon.
Not safe for work.
Meaning, it’s best not to look at that in a place where any minute now your boss is going to walk in on you.
(Whoops, never mind the submission without the picture!)
This blog helped me make the decision to start wearing corsets, so it’s fitting that I post the first picture of my baby here!

Saying that behind a blank gray face is horrible so nyeh nyeh!
