Tuffy Luv Helps You Dress For the Body You Have

Yes, it's nice to be skinny, but whenever my best friend and I are shopping, I can't help but be jealous, because shirts always fit her nicer because she's a size 34C AND she's as skinny as I am.

Friday Faves: Just Because I’m Thin, Doesn’t Mean I Have an Eating Disorder

I always hated the day when we would watch movies involving a girl with an eating disorder in middle school and high school. Suddenly people would be leaning back in their chairs and furrowing their brows at me. I could never escape their concerned glances, the way they watched me eat my salad I had packed that day.

One of These Women Is Not Like the Others

The woman in the middle and the one on the right are both very slim. They are ideal according to the “thin is in” mentality glorified in the media, but in all likelihood quite a bit smaller than the average American woman.

I Remember: My Journey through Fatness, Skinniness, and Healthiness

People can be monsters, and I don’t mean in the Lady Gaga sense. They can be downright vicious to others without even realizing the irreversible damage they cause in the process. Though I keep it hidden away in a corner of my mind, I have a lot of memories of this kind of often subtle ruthlessness. I spent most of my young life as “the fat girl.” This is what I remember.

Wardrobe Wish List: Fragile Pull-On Pants

The pants look like jeans, but function somewhat like sweat pants in that you basically pull them on and button the single button at the top. They feature back pockets, faux front pockets, and no zipper, so you can imagine my surprise when I took them off the hanger and unbuttoned them in the dressing room to discover… pants that were not actually jeans.

The Morning After: Nice To Meet You, Neighbors!

It was the first party in our new house. Our boxes weren't even unpacked yet, but our new neighbors (who all happened to be very cute boys) were having people over so we thought we'd join in too. I rifled through my duffle bags to find a low-cut shirt and a pair of jeans to wear, dabbed on a bit of makeup and was ready to mingle with my new friends.
