Several update emails later She is announcing it's release. Here are a few (although I love them all) that I truly adore. Shop these looks!

The Top 6 Misconceptions of Plus Size Women

Have you ever had a conversation with someone and shared things you have done or wore and they seemed surprised. Although we live normal lives, there are some people that believe our lives are anything but like theirs. I have complied the top 6 misconceptions of plus size women. Do you relate????

#1 Plus size women are lazy....

Most plus size women are not lazy. We enjoy getting out of the house and doing activities. Just because we are overweight does not mean we sit on the couch all day.

#2 Plus size women are totally unhealthy and near death lol

While I do understand some risk factors with our health, not all plus size women are having health issues. It is very possible to be over 200 pounds and still live a healthy lifestyle.

#3 Plus size women do not work out

I can admit not all plus size women get it in in the gym but I can say many of us do. Doing at least 30 minutes of some sort of exercise can benefit everyone. Just check out #pspfit on Instagram.

#4 Plus size women all have low self-esteem and confidence

I don't know where they find a large group of ladies like this, but I have noticed that plus size women have amazing confidence and self-esteem. A lot of us really do love the skin we are in!

#5 Plus size women are desperately seeking and will settle for less

I have heard horror stories about this but I can say with the times changing confidence is not the only thing on the rise. The type of men we choose to date is a reflection of how we feel. We have standards just like everyone else.

#6 Plus size women has no fashion sense

People are still living under a rock. Plus size fashion is one of the biggest fashion industries today. We want more and we want better. Those moo moos are long gone.

Have any of you experienced any of these?????
