It is after whining to my friend LP about the lack of technical fabric-made apparel in plus sizes that he told me that there was a store on St. Laurent (Montreal’s main street) around Laurier, in the Mile-End, that caters to plus-size women sports apparel needs. ►►►
After a (public) exchange on Twitter with @gotravel during which I mentioned my Indian epic adventures that included being kicked out by our Couch$urfing (C$) host in Goa, India (they were not “tagged” as you can see, just mentioned), they suggested I should write a reference, a thing I was reluctant to do up to now in order to maintain a certain “peace” and avoid public fights and retaliation. ►►►
So I decided to give it another shot and to be more specific. Maybe they didn’t understand what I meant…
Inspired by Sarah, a.k.a. Queen Sized Flava, someone I recently met and who successfully (after being turned down again and again) made the Forever 21 plus-size collection available in the province of Quebec. ►►►
The idea of flying as a plus-size passenger can turn to a phobia for many of us, chubbier travelers. While leg room is an issue for almost all adult passengers, the width of the seat is our very own plus-size nightmare.
Most of us already know that when you are flying plus-size, you can ask for a belt extension in order to buckle up while flying. But I found out at my own expense that belt extension + exit row seat = problems! ►►►
