As a plus-size woman, there are a few things left unsaid between me and my thinner friends. (Like, for instance, the best angle for a selfie.) Don't get me wrong, I love my skinny friends! There are just some tiny, not-a-huge-deal things I'd like them to know... 

Pretty please hold the camera UP when we're taking selfies together. Low angle selfies are not a good look for my chin(s) :)

I love shopping with you, but a lot of your stores don't carry my size.

Just because he's chubby doesn't mean you have to try and hook me up with him.

Just make sure we have more in common than BMI ;)


I can't wait to be in your wedding! But I might need a different dress style than the other bridesmaids, cool?

Even if you forget all this I'll still love you. Yr my BFF and we in this for life.
