What is Broadist? Broadist is a personal style blog that aims to promote radical self acceptance by addressing broader bodies and minds – starting with our own. We want to continue to learn how to value ourselves, and help others to do the same. We want to look and feel maddddd fly. Most of all, we want to be a part of the conversation.
Where is Broadist based? We are based in Brooklyn, NY.
Who do you write for? Do you do anything else for work? (Caroline talking, now). My work can be found in Brokelyn, xoJane, Thought Catalog, and other places on the internet. In addition to writing, I work at an indie music promotion company. Say hi if you see me at a show.
Where do you like to shop? I like to pick up things here and there at thrift shops in Brooklyn, vintage stores throughout my travels, and the slew of malls of New Jersey and Pennsylvania when I visit family. I am also really into swaps and have a soft spot for the sale racks at Urban Outfitters and Bloomingdales.

Height/weight/measurements? I wear a US size 12 that can range anywhere from a 10 to a 16 depending. Size 8.5 or 9 shoe. If you’d like to send anything to review, please email for specific measurements.
How do I get a hold of you? All contact info is available in The Broads section!
You totally rule, but I totally rule too! How can I be on Broadist? Do you take submissions? Since Broadist is almost entirely original content, we don’t accept submissions in the traditional tumblr sense. Please email if you have anything you’d like to share or if you’re interested in contributing. There’s also “Some Babes We Liked on the Internet” and “Introducing: A Broad.”
What is “Introducing: A Broad”? It is a space on Broadist where we feature people that we know (on and offline) that have a bangin’ sense of style. We want to get to the core of others who show unapologetic self-acceptance, body positivity, and cool style.
What’s “Some Babes We Liked on The Internet”? It is an amalgamation of people we find attractive or inspiring, as seen on tumblr or various fashion and style blogs. We always link back to the original source!
Why aren’t you following me? What the heck?! If you see the tumblrs “roxvrox" or "shadood" following you, just close your eyes and imagine that it’s Broadist. Because, well, it is. That’s us. Though, you sadly won’t see any new posts from Roxy.
What happened to Roxy? She passed away on November 24, 2013. Read more about it here (by Caroline) and here (by Alex) and here (by Scott). Also here (by Louis) and here (by Cari) and last but not least here (by Lisa). <3
