Fat Tuesdays : Fuck Solstice Intimates

EDIT :

Before you go all commenting, half cocked, this issue has been updated and resolved, as far as I'm concerned.

Y'all, I cannot with shitty customer service and people trying to feed me bullshit. I have those words on repeat right now. But here is a video regarding my beef with Solstice Intimates and their lack of representation of fat people and subsequent super shitty customer service, poor business ethics, and general asshattery. Links below as well as a couple of screenshots!

  1. Great video!!

    It would be great to see this resolved nicely instead of left hanging. I think too often people take criticism or just other ideas way too negatively and feel attacked when that was not the case at all. Hopefully Natalie will be able to see this and have a discussion with you!

    1. Girl, that would be nice. It would be so nice if everyone stopped getting all scared and defensive and was just like, "Yeah, we don't have x, y, and z, but we do want those things, so we're gonna try that." Whatever. People just get all butthurt. Ugh. But this is the end for me. I'm not really interested in pursuing this any farther.

  2. I find it so utterly ridiculous that you’re going out of your way to attack a small business because you feel underrepresented. There are plenty of larger women on the solstice website/instagram . In fact, there are women of every shape , size and COLOR which I think is amazing. Unfortunately , when she was starting up she probably didn’t have the time or resources to represent everyone and that’s okay. It would be amazing to have every body type represented but it’s not a small business’s, particularly not this business (I don’t know why you singled them out specifically , maybe you just wanted free stuff) to represent you. You came off as aggressive and egotistical. Then giving her photos and telling her to use them in exchange for free things ? Lol, why should she promo someone she doesn’t know , who attacked her business at that as well as give them free HANDMADE items. This was ridiculous and honestly so shitty to attack someone’s business and character because they couldn’t give YOU what you wanted. The world doesn’t revolve around you , honey!
