LF plain cotton plus sized underwear

I have been buying plain cotton underwear from Hanes and Women Within for a while now, but the customer service is really bad and they don't keep track of my orders online very well at all ( like I can't find orders I made in my account a year ago). I want to buy reasonably priced plus-sized cotton undies online from a place that does these things better. The reasonably priced = $4-5 apiece at most. (These are non frilly non fancy plain underwear. The kind you buy in multipacks.) Does anyone have favorites they recommend?

Etsy seamstress?

Have you worked with anyone who does custom sewing through Etsy or some other online platform? I want a set of jersey knit women's pajamas with piping made from fabric I designed at Spoonflower, and I don't know where to start. Thanks for any suggestions!

Athleisure / work-from-home clothes from small or smallish businesses?

After less than a week of working from home, I've realized that I don't have nearly enough t-shirts, sweatshirts, leggings, sweatpants, cozy socks etc. I'd ideally like to buy these items online from small-to-medium sized businesses. Bonus points for purchases that support: workers who have lost work due the current crisis, efforts against Covid-19, and progressive causes. [more inside]

Vain-filter: I miss my original hair color!

For the last year, my hairstylist has been covering my (multiplying) grays with an all-over "Demi color" that is more of a gloss. It coats the outside of the hair follicle and make my hair shiny, and my roots aren't noticeable for about 6 weeks. The good: because it coats my hair, it's not damaging and my hair is shiny and soft. The bad: my natural hair color was a brownish-blonde with natural highlights, and this demi color is dark, almost black. Mefites with brownish/blonde hair, how have you handled covering grays?

Name That Shirt!

I found this wonderful shirt with all of its tags and labels removed. It's dark heather gray stretchy fleece with light gray non-fleece trim, and seems to have been intentionally designed without buttons despite the buttonholes. What is it, who made it, and how can I get more? [more inside]

comfort uber alles

Although I make cursory efforts to coordinate my clothing, I don't really wear nice outfits because they don't seem very comfortable. Some days, I think, wouldn't it be neat if I paid more attention to my clothing? If you were ever similar to me but then became somebody who dressed nicely... how did you change this? [more inside]

Keep your hair on: Surf edition

I would like to learn to surf. I love being in the ocean and swimming. However, a few years ago I started wearing wigs full time due to alopecia. I don't have the kind where I'm bald, but I don't look like Jamie Lee Curtis with my short hair tho. More like the twin brother from Arrested Development. I haven't been in water higher than my knees since I started with wigs. [more inside]

Please Help Give My Hands Something to Do Other Than Touching My Face

In the interests of keeping myself and others healthy, I can wash my hands for twenty seconds, no problem, but stop touching my face??? Unpossible. At least, not without something to redirect my hands to. Do you have any recommendations for specific necklaces or kinds of necklaces that are good for fidgeting with? [more inside]

What vegan belts and shoes are durable?

What vegan belts and shoes are durable? I am especially interested in men's items that are fashionable. There are many belts and shoes constructed from man-made materials, but they often fall apart after a short period of time compared to items made from leather.

Men's shirts: bold, interesting prints, large sizes?

Help me, fatshionistas of Mefi! I am a fat woman who really likes men’s shirts with bold, interesting prints. Examples: Everything Tan France wears on Queer Eye, Alex Horne’s octopus shirt, this shirt here. But even when I can find things I like, I can't find them in sizes large enough for me, because men's shirts don't tend to be sized for the proportions of a cis woman with big hips (50") and chest (49"). Where should I be shopping? [more inside]
