Today I’m going to share with you a fashion essential that I couldn’t live without. Something that make my life easier as a fat girl. I’m also giving a huge shout out to a brand that lives and breathes body and fat acceptance — Snag tights. I am going to rave about them but I do not have an affiliate links or other incentives to write this post. I just think they’re a fabulous company who deserve all the recommendations they can get.

Why I love them

That’s simple, they helped me massively expand my wardrobe. For years I didn’t wear tights or dresses because tights were so uncomfortable and I couldn’t be bothered faffing around with stockings. As Snag pointed out, all tights were the same size, the bigger sizes were just longer. The result was they dug in, rolled down, sagged, and were generally uncomfortable. I gave up on wearing them, and that meant giving up on any clothes that needed them.

And then…

One day while browsing Instagram I saw a sign that said tights didn’t fit everyone and so they fixed them. It was Snag of course! They aren’t a plus size brand. They are an everyone brand. Tights in sizes that will fit a petite size 6 all the way up to a size 28 woman who is 6ft2! This is brilliant!

Believe it or not, I don’t like plus size brands. I hate going into clothes shops which are either just for fat people or the large sizes are in their own section. It feels like we’re undesirables. We’re being quarantined from the “normal” people.

Fat people are people!

We do not need special seats, special sections or special stores. We need a world that is truly inclusive for people or all sizes and abilities. I love that Snag acknowledges that and is doing their part in the fight, both with their tights and their social media posts. Snag, I salute you! You’re all awesome 🤩

Over to you Snag…
