Are you a plus-size human who would like to shop in the same place your straight size friend does? Are you searching for an affordable basic fashion staple? Have you have a bad shopping experience because of your size? Would you like to shop in an empowering body positive space where the size range is XXS - 6X+??
Join me as I talk with Mallorie Dunn of SmartGlamour - an affordable, fashionable, customizable, and ethical clothing line for people of all shapes, sizes, heights, ages, identities, and styles. SmartGlamour has three main very broad goals: to empower our customers through clothing and help them on a road to body acceptance, to make good quality clothing that is sold at affordable prices, and to cut away at hatred that stems from insecurity and the belief that beauty and brains can not go hand in hand.
Mallorie Dunn is the owner and designer of SmartGlamour - a body positive customizable clothing line offering sizes XXS-6X and beyond. She has degrees in both Fashion Design and Art + Design Education and has been residing in NYC for over 10 years. She launched SmartGlamour in Spring of 2014 to combat negative self image by offering ethically made clothing for all bodies and depicting humans of all sizes, shapes, heights, weights, ages, ethnicity, identity, and ability accurately in look books, ad campaigns, and runway shows.

Today’s episode features Shannon, who is the founder of FabUplus Magazine, and Tone, of the Cosmic Rogue Tribe podcast!
Shannon is breaking the media mold by offering a plus-size, body positive, health, fitness, weight neutral, and lifestyle PRINT magazine!! Listen in as she describes her leap of faith that has lead her on this awesome journey.
Shannon’s body positive journey began in the summer 2015 when she was just done, done with the body hate and the shame she felt over how she looked.
In July 2015 Shannon was on a mission, a mission to get thin.. she couldn’t stand her body any longer. At 250 pounds, She had been running 23 kilometers a week for 2 years and not getting the results she wanted.
She was eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly, why was she still fat?
She made an appointment with her doctor to explore weight loss surgery as an option. Bottom line, it wasn’t. Her tests showed she was healthy, fit, and therefore NOT a candidate for surgery.
Shannon set out on a mission, a mission to find others like her. She discovered a whole community of amazing plus size women living their lives to the fullest. Right then and there she knew the plus size community needed a media platform that was designed for them. A place that wouldn’t try to change who we are, but one what would celebrate our diversity. FabUplus was born!
