Body Positivity & Fat Liberation: A Panel Discussion
Body positivity as a movement has been life-changing for many of us: we have learned to accept our bodies as they are, feel more comfortable in our own skin, and embraced our own definitions what’s beautiful. But there are times when the body positive movement falls short: when we fail to recognize systemic factors that keep folks disadvantaged, when we exchange society’s oppressive standards of beauty for an equally oppressive standard of “health”, or when we center folks who most closely conform to “worthy” as defined by the cultural elite. At this special event, we’ll bring together a vibrant group of panelists living in larger bodies to discuss the difference between body positivity and fat liberation. We’ll look at ways to embrace our bodies but also move beyond that to issues of justice that affirm our individual humanity. You won’t want to miss this rich discussion.
Our panelists include a fantastic group of local body positive folks excited to chat about fat liberation. The panel will be moderated by Amber Karnes, Founder of Body Positive Yoga.
Body Positivity & Fat Liberation: A Panel Discussion
Based on the excitement around last spring’s lingerie event, we’re bring it back on an even larger scale! Not only will you have the chance to shop lingerie and intimate fashions, we’ll be screening a short form documentary we’re creating around fashion, body confidence, and plus-size folks feeling sexy in our skin. We’re thrilled to bring this event to you during this fall’s Fashion Week Minnesota.
Cake Plus-Size Retail and Deeva Rose have teamed up to bring the Twin Cities it’s very own Full Bodied Burlesque Review! This dynamic duo has assembled a cast of multi-talented full bodied babes, ready to entertain audiences from far and wide. A show designed to celebrate radical self- love and all larger bodies.
Sexual pleasure is for people in ALL kinds of bodies – yes, yours too! Sometimes larger bodies need a little something more when it comes to experiencing the full spectrum of sensual and sexual pleasure, but it can feel overwhelmingly vulnerable to know where to find the information.
In-person and virtual tickets available.

As a small business & mostly one-woman-show, it's important for us to be able to take some time away every once-in-a-while! Instead of closing at a "traditional" time (a.k.a. when everyone else is off and wants to shop), we've chosen a week during a typically cold and quiet sales time. . .as well as a week when most folks in the city seem to be getting out of town or staying in to avoid crowds.
Please come visit us before our after our week off! Thanks for your support!
If you happen to be in town for the Super Bowl and were looking forward to shopping at Cake, get in touch and we're happy to set up a personal shopping appointment for you!
