Episode 14 - Jovial Chubster Plumpstress

We're baaaaaaaaaaack! 

Are you as stressed out about this election as we are?? It feels both super important and overwhelmingly inescapable (feel free to skip about 14 minutes into this episode to avoid hearing us talk politics.) We feel like we're constantly being inundated with the awful things that Donald Trump has said/is saying/will continue to say and our rising blood pressures were a gentle reminder to take some time for self-care in these super-stressful times.  Rape Abuse & Incest National Network (RAINN.org) is great resource with information about how to avoid and deal with triggers. 

 

You hear all sorts of things about being pregnant - swollen ankles, heartburn, stretch marks! But it's not all bad. It's an excuse to invest in a new (temporary) wardrobe - luckily we've come a long way since the potato sacks of the 60's and 70's. Maternity fashion is getting better and better and for once it looks like there are benefits to starting your pregnancy on the plus size side! Fabrics are stretchy and you're SUPPOSED to show off that belly.  Liza has been liking Pink Blush Maternity (#nosponsor- they just have cute stuff for straight sizes and plus sizes!)  

Ok so we're a bit split on how the new Lane Bryant campaign makes us feel- what do you guys think? Have they finally started to move towards showcasing a more diverse range of body types or are they just putting us in a terrible shopping headspace?

Our very own Lillian Bustle is a cover girl! Here she is on and in Jersey City Magazine promoting her Speakeasy Burlesque which if you're local you HAVE to check out.  It happens every 1st Tuesday of the month at Talde in JC.
