Lane Bryant: Actions Speak Louder Than Words

Yesterday, Lane Bryant hosted a #PlusIsEqual event in Time Square. I wasn’t there, but it didn’t take long for all of my favorite fat babes to start posting, tweeting and instagramming the whole she-bang.

Sadly, the news was not good but also not surprising: Lane Bryant missed the mark again. See the thing is, they held an event to say that “Plus Is Equal” but then hired entertainers who used their stage time to talk about their weight loss victories and how eating too much is bad for you any of their fucking business. They also made up a bunch of t-shirts for the event, but you were S.O.L. if you wanted to wear something above a size XL.

In any case, ultimate babe Virgie Tovar wrote an awesome piece about the event for Ravishly, and I highly recommend it. You can read it here:

#PlusIsEqual But I’m Not Sure I Understand The Equation

And after you read that piece, I suggest boycotting Lane Bryant until they can get their shit together.
