[quote=mergirl;1293884]Ladies.. Do you use your bellies as a muff? You know like a hand warmer? I know if i had the type of belly for which such a thing was possible i would do this. I already keep my hands warm under my boobs (sometimes even when i forget people are there).


Nope. I kinda sit on them. I also will just pull my arms up the sleeves, then wrap my arms around myself.

Nope nope nope, not the only one who does this. In my case it's more of a tucked under the tumtum with hands between legs thing. I sometimes do that underboob handwarming, too, which I've fortunately not done in public (yet!). Another comforting/warming thing I do is to stick my hands up my sleeves so they're sandwiched between my arms and sides. Then there's always sticking my fingers between the top of my thighs and tum to either warm them or give my shoulders a rest.

I'm not sure if it's my getting older but my shoulders seem to get the coldest now. I wish I could stick them under something! Must be time for the granny shawls.

Actually, I have done this. In the winter my hands get cold, and I have arthritis. The warmest place for me to put my hands is under my belly.
I only do it at home though - not out in public. People wouldn't understand.

Guilty as charged on both counts; but it's an even exchange for me. Yes I am warming up my freezing hands, but also using my freezing hands to cool down over-heated areas especially under the boobies. Though I have managed not to do so in public, so far...

Guilty. I tend to tuck my hands in between my thighs for warmth and comfort too. Just feels relaxed....I have so far resisted the urge to do so in public

I do this too. And I think I do it in public too - its not like I'm moving my hand around that someone could mistake that I'm playing around down there.

I actually do use my belly that way, but mostly at night when I'm sleeping. I also use it as just a place to put my hands when I'm sitting down. I try not to do that in public, but sometimes I just do it without thinking about it. Then when I do think about it, I think "well, maybe people who aren't fat need to get used to seeing the way fat people do things, and if they think it's gross then they just have to deal," and sometimes I just decide I might not feel like dealing with any stares so I put my hands somewhere else, like I'd gather the material at the bottom of my shirt and make a sort of pocket for my hands.

...it's not sleazy, no worries. I do the same thing, but I can only do that if I'm leaning sideways since I can't close my legs while I'm sitting upright.

If I'm alone, the warmest place is definitely under my big titty (mentioned in another post) so that's where I go if my hands are absolutely freezing. My belly fat doesn't really roll in a way that's convenient for hand warming

This forum is about celebrating the beauty of all BBWs but some invariably get more attention than others, especially from men. Does this bother you? Do you feel that certain beauty ideals are to blame?

My next question is about something women commonly do in other forums to be "nice". Have you ever felt compelled to compliment a girl's picture even if you find it distasteful and/or unappealing simply because the guys are clearly sidestepping it to rave about the girl who posted after her? Do you feel that this is less of an issue in female-dominated forums like the Fashion forum?

Interesting questions...

Beauty ideals... I'm hopeful that there's a niche for all types of beauty in the world. Jealousy is one negative emotion I've somehow managed to escape so it hasn't been an issue for me in that regard. On some occasions, I am hurt that another big chick might have a significant other or look great in a dress and get a compliment... but it isn't meant to take away from their beauty. It's just a genuine "ouch" moment where I realize myself as less than for whatever reason and it stings.

Complimenting others... nope, I compliment where I feel the need to share. I don't feel any pressure to acknowledge anyone and haven't on past message boards. If anything, the opposite is true, I might pass on offering someone a compliment they deserve because I see that a good number of people have already chimed in on the topic.

I'm always resting my hand/s on my stomach and rubbing it, it is always the warmest part for some reason, i sometimes find myself accidently doing this in public but not because of the warmth, it is just a really bad habit i have.

I something place my hand on the chest area about the boobs and below the collarbone as this is part is generally always cold to touch.

As a photographer myself I refrain from complimenting on pictures I don't like. I see so many taken as paysite promos from unappealing angles, bad lighting, and just generally poor composition that I simply keep quiet. It would come off as not supportive or hypercritical, but in my head I am thinking if only they did this and that the picture would be so much better. I guess that is the photography teacher in me and the desire to show fat women in their best light. Snapshots are one thing, but when taking a portrait I would like to see them done to show the aspects of the woman that make her beautiful. However I guess if their clients are lapping it up who am I to critique?

Wimmins, have you ever found yourself thinking "I will/would do this/that IF i was thinner??
OR- have you ever thought it in the past.. if so how do you look back on thoughts like those now?

1. There was this woman who moved into my neighborhood when I was a teenager. I cant remember her name but she was an SSBBW. She was such a great woman. Always a smile on her face! She seemed super happy and was married to a gorgeous guy and had a sweet child. It was then I realized not all beauty came in small packages. Cause to me she was gorgeous!!
2. I still dont consider myself attractive
3. Queen Latifah...yes I know she lost weight, but she is not skinny by any means and is unapologetic about it.

My next question is about something women commonly do in other forums to be "nice". Have you ever felt compelled to compliment a girl's picture even if you find it distasteful and/or unappealing simply because the guys are clearly sidestepping it to rave about the girl who posted after her? Do you feel that this is less of an issue in female-dominated forums like the Fashion forum?
Doesn't bother me at all. I wouldn't expect every person on the street to think I'm beautiful, it'd be kinda silly for me to expect it here. And I don't really think it has to with certain beauty ideals; clearly there are men (and women) who find beauty outside of the mainstream. Everyone has their own personal ideals anyway, so I don't take compliments or lack thereof too personally.

As for the second question - I refrain from making comments. I give credit when credit is due. If I don't really feel a shot is becoming/tasteful/etc, I keep my mouth shut regardless of whether guys are raving about the next girl or what have you. I operate that way on any part Dims; I don't feel the urge to compliment for the sake of complimenting. It seems rather disingenuous to a degree. It might be less of an issue on the Fashion Forum simply because alot of guys don't frequent that area.

It has never bothered me. I have seen the same thing happen with the SS/BBWs when it comes to complimenting the SS/BHMs who post pics. What does irk me is I have seen certain men repeatedly thank (and flirt) only with the SS/BBWs they have an interest in; while totally ignoring others who have complimented them and that is not right. Certain people like certain body types and are naturally going to (sometimes overly) compliment those who match those ideals, while ignoring others. However, that is no excuse to be rude. If a person thinks enough of your picture post (the general you/your not "you" Cors - lol) to take the time to post a compliment, take the time to say a simple thank you and then go thank/flirt with whomever.

I can't speak for my sister BBWs, but if I compliment a picture it's because I mean it. If I don't say anything, I either haven't seen it, or I just didn't think much of the photo, and chose not to say anything. I have never felt personally pressured to compliment anyone.

Yes! The bellie or under the boobs...both are good hand warmers.

I loved this stuff since it didn't have the yucky medicinal smell of regular Gold Bond nor the powdery smell of some body powders. It seemed to be designed for this purpose, actually, and I still keep a bottle just in case.

I do the exact same thing...under apron, boobs, fat rolls... I'm glad someone else does it too!
