If you're a fat woman who dares to exist on the Internet, you are sadly inundated with a lot of "advice." Trolls will creep out of every corner to shame you for "promoting obesity" and give you a laundry list of all the things you shouldn't do as a fat woman. And plus-size blogger Loey Lane has had more than her fair share of advice

  • As a confident blogger who wears whatever she wants, whenever she wants, Loey's gotten a ton of unsolicited advice.

  • So she made an epic video sarcastically teaching other women what the unofficial "fat girl summer dress code" is -- and it is glorious.

    "I can say personally, as someone who has been overweight several summers in a row, that I have been informed many times about what I am and am not allowed to wear," she says in the vid. "And if you're starting out this video thinking, 'Can I just wear whatever I want?' No. No -- why would you do that? Why would anyone wear what makes them feel confident and happy, and not think about how others feel about the garments that they're putting on their own bodies?"

  • The advice she gives is pretty hysterical, calling out jerks who say bigger women can't wear tight clothing, crops tops, and, of course, bikinis.

    She sarcastically noted:

    "How can anyone think they can rock a crop top successfully without offending everyone around them? Do you see that sliver of skin -- do you see it?"


    "You are completely expected to spend the entire summer in full-length leggings and/or jeans. ... It's still nice to wear a turtleneck and leggings -- maybe another pair of leggings over the leggings too, just so you're not showing any signs of any kind of cellulite underneath those."

  • Lane ended the video acknowledging that shaming happens to everyone: Whether you're thick, thin, or even a man, you're susceptible to Internet hate.

    Her advice?

    "Be comfortable, be cute, feel awesome in what you're wearing, and just be confident. If someone reminds you of the dress code, tell them it's outdated ... and their opinion doesn't matter."
