11 Body-Positive Stores With Amazing Black Friday Sales

Before you shop, make sure you're supporting companies that support you.

557

Nothing brings out the worst in people like Black Friday shopping. Elbows are thrown, coffee is chugged, and children sit crying in their strollers at 11 p.m. on Thanksgiving night. It's the real life Hunger Games — may the sales be ever in your favor. All this to say, we still participate in the mayhem, for the sake of a killer deal.

We've been seeing Black Friday ads for weeks now, broadcasting who has what deals and when those deals are going down. While it can be easy to become overwhelmed with discounts, Black Friday is the day company ethics are often buried under the wallet-saving price. It's clear that millennials and Gen Z care about supporting brands that line up with what they believe (Victoria's Secret just canceled their yearly fashion show due to backlash), but hey, a sale is a sale...right?

Wrong. With an election year quickly approaching, we all know the importance of a vote. The first and foremost way to vote? With your wallet. That being said, there are plenty of body-positive stores that are bringing their best to Black Friday this year, so you can score big while continuing to support what's important to you!

1. American Eagle 

American Eagle has made moves the last few years in regard to body positivity. Carrying a wide variety of sizes and fits, AE has a pair of jeans (and a sweater, and dresses, and accessories) for everyone. They are currently offering 40 percent off everything, in-store and online, so Black Friday shopping can start early!

2. Aerie 

American Eagle is the gift that keeps on giving. Their loungewear brand, Aerie, is having the same 40 percent off deal, adding 10 for $35 undies to the shopping cart.

3. ASOS

ASOS, the British online retailer, joined the body positivity movement a while ago. They do not airbrush their models and strive to showcase different body types in each piece of clothing they sell. This has gained high praise from shoppers. This Black Friday, you can get up to 70 percent off through their site.

4. Fabletics 

Fabletics, most commonly known for its subscription nature and beginning deal of "2 for $24 leggings," took its body positivity mission up a notch in 2017, when they extended their sizing to meet the athleisure needs of more women. The company has continued to provide positivity, with partners such as Demi Lovato joining their ranks.

Last year, Fabletics offered 50 percent off site-wide, so you're sure to score some stellar athleisure wear.

5. Old Navy 

After moving plus-size options to online-only, Old Navy is back to representing every shopper in their stores! This means everyone can join the crowds of shoppers this year to get their favorite looks. While Old Navy does have deals all week leading up to Black Friday, they are offering 50 percent off EVERYTHING from November 27th to November 29. Oh, and you can get $1 "cozy socks." So yes, Old Navy is worth adding to the list of Black Friday destinations.

6. Dressbarn

In 2016, Dressbarn launched its "More Than A Name" campaign, fronted by body positivity icon Ashley Graham. The campaign was intended to highlight women who had been marginalized for one thing or another, and the company has continued to support these demographics ever since. Last year on Black Friday, Dressbarn offered 50 percent off site-wide, so get ready to update your wardrobe with some professional pieces!

7. Modcloth

Since its establishment as an online retailer in 2002, Modcloth has sought to represent its real-life customers in their advertising and in the products they offer. They also don't skimp on the Black Friday bargains. Each day leading up to Black Friday, we're seeing new products in their "24-hour deal" category, with prices cut as much as 55 percent. You also get 20 percent off everything, 30 percent off orders of $100 or more, and 40 percent off orders of $200 or more.

8. Dear Kate

Dear Kate first came to the attention of body positive individuals everywhere when they responded to Victoria's Secret's "Perfect Body" campaign in 2014. The period panty retailer is taking a once-taboo subject and recognizing that women everywhere need a little help during their time of the month. On Black Friday, you can order period panties of your own, receiving a higher percentage off when you order more panties.

9. Dove 

Dove has been a household name in body positivity since their #RealBeauty pledge to use women who represent their customers in their branding. They've continued to spread the positivity in campaigns like the Self Esteem Project.

You can find discounted Dove products at your local CVS, Walgreens, or Target. Many products are marked at least 25 percent off.

10. Target 

If there's one store that knows how to do Black Friday, it's Target. Target has also continued to make moves for body positive actions over the years, so you can snag all the sales guilt-free. We're talking discounts on winter jackets, sweatshirts, jeans, pajamas, accessories...pretty much everything your closet needs and then some.

11. Lively

Last, but not least, Lively has brought body positivity to women's underwear and loungewear since the day they opened in 2016. Offering sizes, shapes, and specific fits that the bra stores of our mothers' day would've never imagined, this company is bringing their A-game to serve the masses. They're not limiting their seasonal sales to just Black Friday, you can get a deal of the day just by checking their website! Today is free "Hustle socks," so don't waste another second!

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

17 Things To Make You Feel GOOD This Week

Because some purchases are just necessary.

Y'all, we're struggling. You don't even have to tell me, I know. What a mess we're all in, right? This year is not going how we planned and the world has turned into one giant struggle bus. I guess you could be super philosophical about everything happening for a reason, but sometimes life is just hard.

There are plenty of ways to bring yourself out of whatever rut you're in. You could go for a run, have a snack, or read a book. Or, if you're really looking for an adrenaline rush, go shopping. This is obviously not going to solve the world's problems with one swift click of the "checkout" button, but hey, it may just give you the little boost you need today.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
