We’d planned on having a fairly directed conversation about where plus sizes begin, and why fatshion is political. But somewhere along the line it turned into Marianne and I discussing the Lane Bryant lingerie ad, and then both of us unleashing our still-smoldering rage on the subject of Old Navy pulling plus sizes out of their stores (it’s not that their clothes are so great, y’all — it’s the PRINCIPLE).
Hence, this is part one of another two-parter. Part two will be released in the middle of next week.
Perfectionist note: I am still working on getting a better sound quality given the limitations of Skype, and truth be told I’m still not thrilled with the sound on this recording or the subsequent one. I think I may have found a way to improve it, so fingers crossed that the next will be amazing….er.
