Counting Down

Hello all! I’d like to apologize for the radio silence this week.  I’ve been dealing with a summer cold/sinus infection all week and cold medications are not conducive to writing… it’s kind of like trying to make sense when you’re drunk.  Just doesn’t work. We’re less than 48 hours away from the end of our …

Pushing Limits

We seem to live in a culture that glorifies pushing our bodies until it hurts.  Take the t.v. show The Biggest Loser for example.  From watching that show, you might get the idea that a work out isn’t successful unless you puke at the end.  Or fall of a treadmill.  When in reality, pushing yourself …

Questioning Possible

I think at some point we’ve all had something that we’ve chosen not to do because we feared we were somehow physically or mentally unable to do it.  This happens a lot, especially for women of size.  Well, women in general, but larger women especially.  We think that we’re “too big” to try canoeing or …

Constructive Criticism

I saw a critique somewhere out there on the interwebz today, the person writing felt that the fit on our sample garments was poor and didn’t do us justice in our photo shoot.  That’s a completely valid opinion.  I’ve mentioned it before, but we are still fine tuning the fit of the patterns, making them …

I really struggled with how to share this story with all of you.  I knew that I would share this story, but how to write it has escaped me.  I tried writing while I was still angry, but I think that narrative is best left in the recycle bin on my computer screen.  I tried …

If I had a nickle…

Have you ever heard the phrase “If I had a nickle for every time someone told me….”  Sometimes it’s a dime.  Sometimes it’s a quarter.  The denomination seems to depend on the speaker’s history and penchant for hyperbole.  I’ve even said it myself a few times. I remember hearing a story as a kid.  This …

3 a Week Update

About two weeks ago, I issued a challenge to the Flying Pig Apparel readers to set different goals and aim for three 30 minute work outs every week.  How is that going for you?  Have you forgotten about it already?  If you’re just joining us, the idea is simple.  A total of 90 minutes of …

And we have liftoff…

Here it is, the much anticipated link to our Kickstarter campaign. If you’ve been reading anything we’ve had to say over the last month, you know that we believe that everyone should be able to be active in clothing that fits them well, is durable, and looks good on their body.  We believe strongly that …
