This article connects the study of transnationalism with the growing area of fat studies. It proposes that a 'trans-sizing' approach to the body has the potential to illuminate both accounts of transnational migration and the body. I conclude by outlining two research agendas with the aim of expanding the focus of work on fatness and transnationalism; first, through focusing on (anti)obesity discourse in China, and second, on the relational experiences of migrant encounters in global cities. © 2013 © 2013 Taylor & Francis.
