Clothing Stores and Designers
Are you curious where you can find the best clothing to fit your body?
Well, we've got you covered for a wide range of cost! Finding clothes that fit you and your style shouldn't be a hassle. Fashion for fat people has evolved a lot in the past couple of decades. Fortunately, Portland is a hub for fat clothing options!
You will find a description of style, size range, location, and contact information for each store and designer.
Are you ready to flip the script on all things movement?
Many fat people have not been allowed to experience movement in a pleasurable, joyful, and/or intuitive way. Often we associate it with obligation, punishment, some previous terrible experience. Each of the resources in this guide are vetted to be warm, welcoming spaces to be in your body in the way that feels best to you on the day you show up! There is a range of accessibility options, movement styles, and facilitators.
You will find a description of the type of movement, accessibility, location, and contact information for each offering.
Want to know what it feels like to be in a room with predominately fat people?
I know, right?! You're probably used to being the only fat person or the fattest person in any given setting. Connecting with other fat people in a fat friendly and affirming environment can be one of the most healing experiences for those of us who aren't used to being celebrated without taking anymore effort than showing up. Something magical happens when we can come together.
You will find description of the event, accessibility, and location information for each event.
Physical and Mental Health Care
