What's New

Welcome to SSBBW Magazine

A brand new online magazine for SSBBWs and written by SSBBWs.

As SSBBWs we need to realize that our size does not make us second-class citizens! We are mothers, sisters, daughters, wives, girlfriends, teachers, doctors, lawyers; we are everywhere and we make differences in the lives of the people around us. It is our mission to build a support system for super-sized women everywhere.

With each issue, we plan to offer educational and entertaining articles, inspiration, motivation, advice, super-size clothing sources, recipes, tips on how to cope with our size, and so much more. We even have a section dedicated to FAs written by FAs and a forum for keeping in touch with our new friends.

We would like to thank you for your support and wonderful comments. We are continually striving to make this magazine better and to offer the best information, advice, and inspiration to you.
