Hi, I'm Natalie...
I am 5'2 and a size 18, which means I am petite AND plus size. Those two sizing terms might seem like polar opposites, but full figures come in a variety of shapes and sizes—one of those being short! As a petite plus size fashionista, it has been extremely difficult to fit into fashion and find clothing made for my body. But I'm here to share my petite plus style tips with you and to show the world that short, plus size women belong in fashion!

I'M FAT, HE'S SKINNY...SO WHAT'S THE BIG DEAL?

Chicago Plus Size Petite Fashion Blogger and model Natalie Craig, of Natalie in the City, discusses being in a mixed weight relationship, finding love in Instagram DMs, losing weight for love, and dating long distance.

On Instagram, I posted a video of my boyfriend, Terry, writing a blog post for me because I was too tired to write one myself after I got home from work. The messages started pouring in, but not the kinds I expected. Immediately, I heard from some of my followers—most of which are plus size women—that they had given up on love because they were convinced they weren't worthy of love because of their bodies. I don't know why I was so shocked. I had felt this same way most of my life—until recently. Sad and wanting to help, I asked my followers to send in any questions they had about dating as a plus size woman, as well as any questions they had about my relationship with Terry. We ultimately decided to sit down and answer these questions one by one in this video.


If you make it to the end of this video.... don't judge me for these bloopers.
