Overweight for a Day

Having been overweight myself many years ago, in 2013 I decided it would be interesting to put on a fat suit and re-experience what it felt like. With a facial prothesis created by the Beauty Department of Leicester College, a ‘Little Britain’ fat suit taped around me and wearing a 20lb ‘fat jacket’ I walked around town. What shocked me was how I felt. By just wearing the costume, I found myself adopting the persona of someone who was significantly overweight and it taught me a very important lesson.
