Welcome to Amplestuff Online's
Links and Resources Page!
Below is a short resource list for products and services for people of size. We will be updating this page as we gather more links, so check back often.
If you have a link or know of one you would like to submit for possible inclusion on this list, please feel free to contact us with the information.
Our Links policy: We provide links to other websites solely as a service to our customers, and not as part of formal “link exchange” programs or marketing agreements. While we do not specifically endorse any link included in the list, we do not knowingly include any link that discriminates against persons of size, or that specifically promotes controversial methods of weight loss, including dieting or surgery. We also do not link to sites that have little to offer the larger customer, or have a primary focus on social networking or dating services.
