Big : stories about life in plus-sized bodies / edited by Christina Myers.

Myers, Christina, (editor.).


Pop culture stereotypes, shopping frustrations, fat jokes, and misconceptions about health are all ways society systemically rejects large bodies. This is a collection of personal and intimate experiences of plus size women, non-binary, and trans people in a society obsessed with thinness. Twenty-six writers explore themes as diverse as self-perception, body image, fashion, fat activism, food, sexuality, diet culture, motherhood and more. These stories offer a closer look at what it means to navigate a world designed to fit bodies of a certain size.
