: In spite of the prevalence of large women in our culture, they are not as visible as the statistics suggest. Where are they? Are they "weighting" until they reach some imaginary right size? Can they live a fulfilling life regardless of their size? In Bountiful Women, psychologist Bonnie Bernell, herself a bountiful woman, answers these questions with a resounding "yes"! This book is both a celebration and a how-to: affirming size while offering strategies for handling challenging situations such as negotiating a tight squeeze on an airplane or fielding judgmental comments about size. Filled with practical ideas, Bountiful Women is about the many choices available to large women today.
