FatGirlSlim From Bliss

Today I got an email offering 30% off of fatgirl products from bliss spa (the spa that’s at so many W hotels).

Curious, I clicked and found 3 products: fatgirlscrub, fatgirlsleep and fatgirlslim. Were there not a “slim” version and were they not all about getting rid of cellulite, the term “fatgirl” could have been used in a positive, affirming, take-back-the-meaning-of-the-ugly-ways-this-phrase-is-often-used kind of way. But as it is, the term just sounds mean. Could this be why they have to put these products on such a super sale to try to sell them?

Not so blissful after all.
