Remember when FatGirl Speaks started their annual summer celebration of everything chubby? Chunky Dunk, the body positive swim group, is back! The event aims to provide a neutral recreational space for bodies of every shape and size. According to the website:
“We know it can be daunting to put on a suit and swim in public. We’re not going to let anything stop us, or you, from enjoying a refreshing summer cool-down! Chunky Dunks are a safer, fun environment to test the waters of your own empowerment and swim, lounge, splash!”
Even though Chunky Dunk has been around since 2007, lately the internet has been abuzz about summer-y size acceptance. fat fashion blogging icon Gabi Fresh even got to talk about her fabulous fatness and the fatkini phenomenon on The Today Show!
