Chubstr in the Los Angeles Times

Last night, as I’m sitting in my fancy hotel room, traveling on some “Official Chubstr Business,” I received a message that said was receiving traffic from the Los Angeles Times. I did a bit of research, and it turns out that they included us in an article! It’s a great piece written by Rene Lynch about beauty, body image, self-acceptance, and the effect the internet has on how people (especially younger people) see themselves.

If you’re reading this, you’re probably aware of the darker side of all of that – how anonymity allows people to do or say things online that they’d never say in real life. Rene covers a lot of that in this article. She also covers the brighter side of things – body positive blogs, like Fat Girl’s Guide, Curve Appeal, and Chubstr. It’s surprising and gratifying beyond belief to be noticed by someone from an organization like the Los Angeles Times, let alone included in an article as something positive for people to take a look at. It feels like we’re making a difference, however small it is.

If you have some extra time, take a look at the article. It’s a great read. And don’t worry, we’ll be back to our normal shenanigans next week – you know – bringing you reviews of the company that lets you put your twitter feed on rolls of toilet paper. Something upstanding like that.

I've shopped old navy and seems like they are one of the only people that try remotely to cater to plus size mens clothing, however i find their jeans fit wonderful through the thigh area but not so much through the legs... i wear a 46 to where the jeans fit they look good, but i have found that the leg area they use too much fabric... even when I've tried their slim & skinny jeans. I just wish that they would test more and try making them look more tailored, without them being to tight or to big through the leg. I feel like a lot of stores really don't pay attention to this side of the size spectrum, probably because it costs them money. You don't see very many extended sizes in store for some reason and what you do find a lot of the time is over sized generic clothing basically drapes which seems like they guessed at what the size it might look like. Although stores like Casual Male XL has decent clothing... and you can find most extended sizes, its completely over priced, and since I'm young i do feel like they don't have styles current with younger generations, feel sorta like shopping with my dad. Although  it might seem like I'm bitter, not gonna lie kinda am I'll take what i can get and make it work, just wish some of these companies would pay us big guys and gals a little more attention and give us something stylish current and with a great fit!
