If you’ve seen me on social media lately, you might notice that I have a pretty fun new profile photo. It features me in a T-Shirt that any cool mama will recognize as COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY NECESSARY to their wardrobe! I mean it, ya’ll! This shirt is essential fashion for all moms out there.
Yes, that is a quote from Mean Girls, and if you didn’t already know that, then you can’t sit with us.
Finding really great options for plus sized women is tough these days. I see my svelte friends sporting the cutest clothes all the time, but it just doesn’t work on me. I am always on the lookout for companies that have amazing options for those of us sporting a little extra cushion. I’m also the type of woman who will say to strangers, “I used to be thin! My kids ruined my body!” Haha. Again, I’m kidding.
Graphic print tees are a big bone of contention for me, as well. When you’re plus sized or have any sort of boobs, often t-shirts just don’t hang on you well. Or you get stuck with the really gross kind of stale-feeling shirts that make you look like a box.
This particular shirt (and the maxi skirt I’m wearing) come from Modbod. I’ve been asked again and again where it came from, and the truth is that it’s from a very cool and VERY local company here in Utah. Modbod is a national chain where every piece is made BY women FOR women. How cool is that?
I’m a big believer in supporting local businesses. I’m a big believer in supporting smaller businesses. And I’m a big believer in supporting women-run businesses. Modbod ticks all the boxes, and I can’t say enough good things about it!
This shirt is seriously so soft and lovely. I probably could have gone a size larger, but I like my shirts to be form fitting. Even if my form is slightly wobbly and has a few bumps!
As a big part of my identity is wrapped up in being a mother, this shirt is at once relevant to my life and relevant to non-moms who have seen the film a thousand times and still quote it all the time.
And perhaps one of my very favorite things about Modbod is their mission to give back. On their clothing tags, it reads: “When you buy from modbod, a portion of your purchase goes to organizations that empower our youth. We are committed to giving back and making this world a better place… one piece of clothing at a time.”
The shirt comes in sizes XS – 4XL, so if you are a mother and you want an awesome shirt to wear, head on over to the site and grab one up. I promise you will start many a conversation!
