Finding sturdy big and tall bikes can be very hard if you don’t know where to shop or what features to look for. The adult bikes at most bike retailers are only designed for small to medium adults – typically up to about 200 or 250 pounds. Whether they are big retailers or smaller bike stores, most bike retailers tend to inventory bikes with frames, wheels and brakes which are not designed for larger weight or taller passengers.
There are many body acceptance books for kids. Some of the books focus on self-esteem, some focus on celebrating all shapes and sizes and some add messages of treating others with kindness. The more books kids are exposed to, the greater the chance they will start to accept and celebrate their body and the bodies of those around them.
Shopping for a big and tall recliner with extra width, extra length and lots of stability can be difficult:
- Weight capacity – Some retailers only sell recliners designed to hold a person who weighs 250 pounds or less.
- Description – Some recliners may be sold as “oversized;” but, this only refers to the seat width, not the weight capacity or the fully reclined length.
- Length – Some recliners may hold more weight; but, a tall person will also need a recliner that has a taller back and a longer length when fully reclined.
- Delivery time – Some retailers can order a sturdy recliner designed to hold someone who weighs up to 500 pounds; however, they require a special order that may take months to deliver.
Several of the big name recliner companies are now making and stocking recliners which are perfect for the larger or taller person. Prices tend to be cheaper online; so, our editors recommend checking them out in a retail store environment and then ordering your recliner online.
