We love podcasts and we know that you do too, in fact, podcasts are so huge right now! Which is pretty great because of the whole ‘lockdown’ thing. There’s actually over 900,000 of them for our listening needs covering everything from history, comedy, dating, and fashion. Here we wanted to share with you some of our top plus size fashion and bopo podcasts to subscribe to right now!
We'll be sharing Spotify links but you can find these podcasts on most podcasting channels too.
For your weekly dose of funny bopo chats, be sure to check out Fat Chat from Secret Recordings. The new podcast launched in December of last year and binging it is definitely getting me through this lockdown. The hilarious trio of George of Fuller Figure Fuller Bust, Hayley of Curves n Curls and Rivkie of Slink magazine talk candidly about body confidence; everything from periods, diet culture, dating, and being the ‘fat friend”.
If you've ever played bingo then you will know that ‘two fat ladies’ is bingo speak is for the number 88 so when we saw that this was the name of the podcast from Ella of Fat Girl Fashion Inspo and Sarah of Sarah Brown Design, we were totally on board.
The Eighty-Eight podcast talks about body-image, shopping, plus-size fashion, and well-being with a feminist and freelancer perspective.
Catherine Feeney shares her love and advice on all things fashion in this fashion emergency hotline. From sending a dm to leaving a voicemail Catherine is here to talk FASHUN...darling!
We love her down to earth style tips that are so relatable and love her fashion brand of the week segment!
The Chenese Lewis Show
We can’t talk about plus size fashion and bopo podcasts without talking about the #1 podcast for plus size women; The Chenese Lewis Show. The iconic live podcast first aired way back in 2008 and has featured interviews with some of the biggest names in the plus-size world and some of our favorite brands. We love the episode with the creator of The Curvy Fashionista, Marie Denee. What's your favorite episode?
Yes and Body Politics
It’s all about empowering people and boosting body positivity on the Yes and Body Politics podcast and Youtube channel. Since 2018 Tresla and Guru have been starting conversations about fashion, body image, self-esteem, sex, online dating, feminism, pronoia, and everything in between.
We love the girl talk in this supportive and uplifting podcast, so perfect for lockdown listening.
Fat Girls' Club
From funny anecdotes to embarrassing stories, Jessica Torres and Liesl Binx talk frankly about what life is like as a fat person with hilarious results. Topics covered in the Fat Girls' Club include fashion, love, life, Netflix, the body positive movement and everything in between.
Fat Lot Of Good
Comedian Helen Thom brings us a funny and honest podcast offering a safe space to talk about our bodies. The Fat Lot Of Good podcast is all about exploring our relationship with our own bodies and how it changes with age. Listening to new episodes has up stitches; we love Episode 21 about fannies, flaps, and pelvic floors. Which eps have you loved listening too?
Oldies But Goodies
These podcasts may have stopped bringing us new content but are 100000% worth a listen:
Cocktails and Confidence
Whether you are learning to love your body, flaunt that new outfit or start your own business, it’s all about confidence. Over 3 months, the founders of the CurvyCon CeCe Olisa and Chastity Garner talked about confidence over cocktails. Including career confidence, body confidence, self-care, and more.
The Sister Space
Simone Powderly and Grace F Victory co-host The Sister Space podcast: a safe space to talk freely about subjects that we often see as taboo. From sexuality, motherhood, self-care, mental health, and orgasms. We love how frank and these chats are. The podcast may only have 6 episodes but we would highly recommend that you give it a listen.
The Body Protest
The Body Protest podcast for the Pink Protest group is all about our journeys to self-love.
Nadia Craddock and Honey Ross combine their personal experiences with scientific fat and research in their talks about race, eating disorders, toxic masculinity, the impact of the media as well their own struggles with self-love.
