Fat / Feminism / Lessons from the Fat-o-Sphere

Books and Bikinis, Plus Size Edition

Since yesterday, my Twitter feed has been full of links to an oddly compelling website that matches book covers to bathing suits. The images are really cool, but with one exception, none of those bathing suits come in (anywhere near) my size. So I thought I’d put together a little gallery of my own.

Suit purchase info is in the captions. Book purchase info (ahem) is available when you click the images.
