On the Plus Side is the only company in the world that offers quality and stylish plus size women’s clothing in sizes 22-48 (1X – 8X). Unlike almost every other plus-size company out there, we only make plus-size clothing. We specifically design the fit and style of our clothing for women size 22+ to allow us to focus on what will look good on you instead of ramping up a size 6 and hoping it will work. Our designs celebrate your curves! Our clothing is of the highest quality, constructed from the finest fabrics with stylish designs. Along with offering beautiful and stylish plus size women’s clothing, we are a socially responsible and environmentally friendly company.

abundiaAbundia is a community of women who come together to support each other in living lives of fat acceptance and Health at Every Size. What began as a small gathering in 1994, has become a yearly retreat and on-going community of love and support. Women who identify as fat or as of size are welcome to join us at our retreat for educational workshops on self-esteem, HAES, size acceptance, fashion, healing art, movement and more!

adipositivityThe Adipositivity Project aims to promote the acceptance of benign human size variation and encourage discussion of body politics, not by listing the merits of big people, or detailing examples of excellence (these things are easily seen all around us), but rather through a visual display of fat physicality. The sort that’s normally unseen. The hope is to broaden definitions of physical beauty. Literally. The women you see in these images are educators, executives, mothers, musicians, professionals, performers, artists, activists, clerks, and writers.

everything_logo_turquoiseAmplestuff is a unique company which was established in 1988 to serve the special needs of the millions of men and women who are plus or supersize. Some of our products are plus-sized versions of items that are readily available to average size people—such as our fanny packs, socks, or hospital gowns. Other products—such as airline seatbelt extenders and size-positive books and videos—are designed especially to solve the unique problems of larger people. We believe that no matter what your size, you deserve the best possible life right now. In fact, our company motto is “Make your world fit you!”

NAAFA will pursue this goal through advocacy, public education, and support.

Jileon Rain Boots About 9 years ago, on a Sunday afternoon in the UK, we were preparing to head out for a family walk when we noticed our sporty sister in law squeezing herself into a pair of ugly mens rain boots, which had been cut up the side with scissors. When we asked why she did not have a feminine pair, she said that she simply could not find any to fit her large calves. And Jileon was born!

We have remained a family run business, focused on providing a range of high quality wide calf and funky rain boots at a good price, backed by exceptional customer service. We are now expanding into the US after exceptional demand for our boots.

Fat Safe Medical’s goal is to facilitate fat people helping other fat people find good, fat-friendly medical care. Fat folks are invited to (anonymously or non-anonymously) submit reviews of doctors/medical establishments/therapists/etc; we’ll post the submissions tagged with the city/town of the doctor so that folks looking for doctors in that area can search the relevant tag..

Big Fig Mattress is the first mattress built specifically to meet the needs of sleepers with a bigger figure. The father and daughter duo saw a need in the mattress industry and developed a mattress that is supportive, comfortable, and durable for bigger figured bodies. Big Fig's mission aligns with the Body Positive movement, a vision based on self-love, body acceptance and positive life choices.

Even our own OTPS experts, Chardline and Alysse, love their Big Fit Mattress!
