100 Episodes in! There have been occasions when I have not expected to reach 100 episodes. As anyone knows, who has a podcast, there is a huge amount of time and effort that goes into putting even 1 episode together, especially when it is created by one person from conception to release. So why do it? Right from the beginning, I wanted people's stories to be told. I didn't want anyone else to feel as lost and confused as I did when Perimenopause hit. It seems there are thousands more people like me and I have the honour of meeting just a few of them - to share their stories, their expertise, knowledge and energy. I love meeting these brilliant, inspiring people - they lift my day and I hope they lift yours too. Imagine my joy, when the gorgeous Lisa Stockman, a truly inspiring stylist - reached out and we ended up meeting in person - for real - in person and she came all the way from Melbourne to London! So we had to do things a little differently and film an episode. I will be the first to admit that it doesn't work so well as a podcast in audio-only form but we had so much fun and I hope it goes some way to showcase Lisa's talent. I know I left feeling inspired to up my getting-dressed game (buttoning my shirt properly and zipping my fly is a start - see video

Zach Miko grew up wary of heading to the beach or pool for fear of being judged for his body. Now a body-confident, plus-size IMG model and influencer advocating for fellow “big boys” living their most joyful life, Zach found himself fed up with the lack of fashionable big and tall swimwear options and decided to meet this need himself with the launch of the first collection from Meekos, his very own big and tall lifestyle brand. The swim line ranges from L – 8XL in size and features more modern styles of big and tall swim trunks than those typically on the market, along with a tank top, hoodie and additional shirts.

Zach is nominated for the 2023 Outstanding Big and Tall Model at the Full Figured Industry Awards!

Welcome to a conversation that dares to challenge the status quo of the hospitality industry. Our latest episode confronts an issue that has been largely whispered about - the urgent call for size-inclusive amenities in hotels. Are we ready to shed the one-size-fits-all approach and welcome a world that recognizes and respects body diversity? We aim to provide a platform for this essential dialogue, with the help of prominent plus-size influencers who are courageously leading this change.Join us as we dissect the deep-seated issues around size inclusivity, not just in hotels, but also in airlines and other public spaces. The controversy is real and the questions are tough - should society stretch its dimensions to accommodate those who struggle with weight management? Are we promoting self-acceptance or inadvertently endorsing unhealthy lifestyles? It's a layered debate that we navigate through, armed with perspectives to challenge your preconceived notions.But we're not just stopping there. We're going a step further to scrutinize the underlying theme of personal responsibility and how it fits into this puzzle. We're taking a critical look at how the hospitality industry is reacting to these demands, and making calculated predictions about future trends in this space. The conversation might make you uncomfortable at times, but it's a necessary discomfort that sparks growth and understanding. So, get ready for a thoughtful exploration that is bound to make you question conventional thought and possibly, open a door to progressive change.Support the show

Focused on the challenges faced by plus size travelers, particularly with airlines like Air Canada, we spark a conversation on the industry's lack of consideration and the difficulties in securing accommodating seats. We also venture into the pervasive issue of fat-shaming worldwide, discussing initiatives like the sugar tax, and offering budget-friendly solutions like WestJet's premium seat bidding system to enhance comfort.

Welcome to season 5!! This episode we have the marvelous Dr Sara Wickham back in the cauldron with us talking all about what's in her new book Plus Size Pregnancy. Sara talks to us about:· How women and families want, need and deserve better answers to their many questions about higher BMI and birth, and that midwives and birth workers need to know what the evidence says. · Clarification of what is the BMI and as Sara says “it's a racist, sexist, classist” index created for complete different reason than for health! · We look at why a higher BMI comes with so many tests and limitations for birth and Sara talks us through the existing evidence.· Are women with a high BMI more at risk of caesarean section, and if so what are the real reasons behind this?· Why the phrase morbid obesity is utter nonsense and rooted in a much darker context.· Sara delves into diet culture, it's myths and the marketing behind it. · Weight bias and fat shaming in healthcare.· And why using BMI is problematic in maternity care.You'll hear all this and much more in this fabulous episode.

We are back this week to talk about swimsuits. And not just any suits, but Swimsuits for All! #slayallday Shopping for swimsuits can be a stressful, vulnerable, and frustrating experience. It's doubly so when your favorite store doesn't carry a cute style in your size, or when all the ones in your size were clearly treated as afterthoughts. #rude As the online swimwear leader since 2005, Swimsuits For All is known for swimsuits with superior construction, expert fit and innovative designs. Today they continue to push the boundaries of style and size in the women's swimwear space. The brand makes stylish, size-inclusive women's swimwear in sizes 4 through 44. Yes, you read that right. Your favorite personal stylist – Holly Katz - has been a fan, a customer, and a big promoter of Swimsuits for All for many years. Its lineup includes one-pieces, bikinis, swim dresses, tankinis, and cover-ups, and most of its suits cost less than $100. #amazeballs Even for the ones that cost more, you can usually get them at a generous discount during one of the brand's many online sale events. Through perfect-fitting swimwear catered to EVERY BODY, Swimsuits For All inspires women of all ages, shapes and sizes to be confident and carefree in the swim they're in. Join Holly for an exclusive interview at the NYC headquarters of Swimsuits For All with their Director of Design, Kristina Guilmain and VP, Brand Manager Bryan Bance. MEET KRISTINA AND BRYAN: As the Director of Design, Kristina and her team create swimwear that fits well, looks beautiful and encourage confidence through masterful design and construction, cutting edge fabric technologies and size inclusivity. Kristina is a swimwear expert and is a passionate swimwear lifestyle person who, she says, was basically born on the beach. Bryan serves as VP, Brand Manager, and comes to the brand from Levi's (did you listen to our last episode??). Bryan brings his experience of understanding the personal fit issues of jeans to the very personal fit issues of a swimsuit. Both are fashion areas that are hard to fit and require a deep understanding of how the customer feels about their body. Knowing their core customer and learning about their “pain points” when considering swimsuits is key to the brand's success. Once they understand the issues or concerns of their customers, the real design and construction work begins. THE ANATOMY OF A SWIMSUIT: #veryimportant Interior Components: The interior of the suit is what gives your body the support it needs. Swimsuits for All uses a power mesh layer that firmly holds you in from the inside. This lining lets the fabric on the outside be bump-free and smooth while supporting, slimming, or lifting from the inside. “The support of the swimsuit is within.” Other Key Elements: Underwire is your friend, especially when it is wrapped and made to be comfortable. Added to this support area is the “bust band.” The straps are not what hold your boobs up it's the band. Truthbomb: One size does not fit all. Customers often need different bra cup sizes for each swimsuit size, and adjustable back clasps. Adjustable shoulder straps are the last line of defense for support. They should never dig into your shoulders, and they are not meant to hold the full weight of your breasts. BUTT COVERAGE: Depending on when and where you are wearing a swimsuit, your desired butt coverage may vary. Swimsuits for All offers 3 main coverage options: Cheeky Cut: shows your cheeks! Full Coverage: covers your cheeks! Modern Coverage: in-between full and cheeky and offers a cut that is still sexy and modern. SIZE RANGE: Inclusivity sizing means just that: sizes for everyone. They offer swimsuits in sizes from 4-44. But not every suit is for every body. So, providing a multitude of styles is critical to offering a wide range of sizes. IN CONCLUSION: The success of Swimsuits for All is based on meeting their customer's needs in the swimsuit category: Bust support: they offer the most options. They serve a segment in the market for women who cannot find the fit or the product they are looking for. They offer a wide range of real sizes (XL at a box store is not Plus Size), inclusive sizing and mix-and-match sizing. STYLE MANTRAS: Designer Kristina: “Swimwear is not a “throw-away” piece. It can be an investment piece. Buy something that serves more than one purpose. We achieve that with the versatility of our pieces.” Marketer Bryan: “We want to give you the gift of confidence. We want to make sure that, when you are out and about in a swimsuit, you don't care what someone thinks about you. You are not thinking about what others think because you love the way you look and feel" Connect and support brands the brands we love, starting with Swimsuits for All.

We are so honored and thrilled to have our Fashion Bestie, Supermodel EMME, back with us on the podcast this week! She is here to share her favorite summer fashion picks and give us a short recap from our last show where we interviewed the winner of her “Fashion Without Limits” competition, Nina Chen. Go back to EP 152 and have a listen! EMME's Favorite Summer Fashion Picks: Our BFFF (best fashion friend forever), EMME spent some time in Mexico this summer at Rancho La Puerta, a wellness resort in Tecata on the Mexican border - and as you can imagine - it was HOT and SUNNY! So, what are her secrets for beating the heat while staying in style? A large reed beach bag that she cannot leave home without. A large sun hat, long sleeves and clean-ingredient sunscreens! Anything linen. She says breathability is key, so go with the wrinkles if you are hot! Smocked Tops (you may even be able to go without a bra if you do it right). Any sort of tunic which will provide cool and stylish coverage – think Morocco. NYDJ skinny jeans. Gladiator sandals. Fresh pedicures (due to a “hiking toe”). Bathing suits that will stay on her body because she likes to move around in the water. Favorite swimwear brands include Anne Cole and Nautica – whose designs bridge the gap between coverage and style. Hot Tip: check out Swimsuits for All* for the best selection of women's swimwear! *As we speak, Holly is wrapping up an interview at the SWIMSUITS FOR ALL headquarters in NYC. Stay tuned for that episode! EMME's vision for Fashion Without Limits Design Competition To recap: Supermodel Emme is a Division 1 college athlete who put “athletic curvy” on the map and rose to fame in the mid-1990's as the world's first plus-size Supermodel, and is once again shedding light on size inclusivity in the fashion industry. After beating cancer a few years ago, EMME felt strongly about creating a legacy project. The result of this vision was the creation of the Fashion Without Limits Design Initiative. Teaming up with her alma mater Syracuse University and online plus-size retailer OneStopPlus (OSP), the nationally recognized advocate for body positivity, health and wellness is promoting fashion inclusivity in the classroom with the 8th Annual Fashion Without Limits (FWL) Design Competition. Emme enlisted the help of fellow advocate and veteran plus-size fashion designer Zahir Babvani, head of design & style for OneStopPlus, to inspire a new generation of up-and-coming fashion designers to put their talents to work for the silent majority -- the estimated 70 percent of American women who wear sizes 12 and up! #FACTS Emme says that she created this competition to galvanize the design school community around the exciting career opportunities in one of the fastest growing, yet most under-served, segments of the fashion industry. The 1985 Syracuse University grad, athletic Hall of Famer, and Fashion Without Limits founder says, “Learning from successful designers like Zahir Babvani shows young designers that this is a rewarding career path. Syracuse University is at the forefront of making inclusive design an exciting area of concentration, giving tomorrow's designers the skills, and ability, to enact real change on the fashion landscape. We hope this program will become a template for other schools moving forward.” According to Emme, curvy women are professionals, celebrities, mothers, daughters and sisters. “All women want to feel special, confident, and secure in their clothes. At Fashion Without Limits, we believe that love, happiness, and success have no size limits. Our goal is to offer fashion design students an inclusive curriculum that enables them to provide women of all shapes and sizes with the apparel they want and deserve.” – EMME It has been so fun catching up with the delightful EMME. We will continue to follow her Fashion Without Limits program, and her mission to change fashion for the better with size-inclusive styles. #YAAASSSS! Thank you, EMME! VOTE FOR US!

Is the behind-the-neck press the secret to well-developed delts? Does cardio actually boost muscle growth, rather than hindering hypertrophy? Are we becoming "desensitized" to obesity and what're the repercussions? In this episode, we'll explore the latest scientific studies that shed light on these questions. This podcast is another installment in my Research Review series of episodes, where I give you concise and practical takeaways from studies that I think are interesting and that can help us gain muscle and strength faster, lose fat faster, perform better athletically, feel better, live longer, or get and stay healthier. There is a ton of scientific research that gets published every year, and even if you narrow your focus to fitness research, it would still take several lifetimes to unravel the hairball of studies on nutrition, training, supplementation, and related fields. That's why my team and I put a lot of time into reviewing, dissecting, and describing scientific studies in articles, podcasts, and books. Oh and if you like this type of episode, let me know. Send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or direct message me on Instagram (@muscleforlifefitness). And if you don't like it, let me know that too or how you think it could be better.
