As a plus size fashion blogger…
WELL. There are a lot of ways I can finish that sentence. I am a plus-sized woman and plus size fashion blogger. Therefore, I know what it's like to feel ignored by the fashion industry. I know what it's like to compromise style and fit for what you can find in your size. It sucks being told fashion isn't for you. I know what it's like to feel ignored by the fashion industry.
For all of those reasons, I'm thankful for the internet. I'm thankful for the variety of bloggers of all shapes and sizes. I'm thankful to find women who share a body shape similar to mine: plus-size bloggers.
There are a hundreds of plus size fashion bloggers out there. I wanted to highlight a handful who I love and whose names get recommended over and over again. These ladies promote self-love and the continued growth of plus-sized fashion. Not only do they have swoon-worthy style, but they are all bright and educated. They are also all thoughtful bloggers in their own right, all helping cultivate and change the landscape of fashion. Here is IFB's round up of our top ten favourite plus size fashion bloggers.
IFB's Top Ten Plus Size Fashion Bloggers.
What I love about this group of bloggers is the diversity. Even within plus-size blogging, we aren't limited to one cultural idea of a beautiful plus-size body. They show that the full figure doesn't have to be clothed a particular way or we don't have to shy away from particular fits, colors, patterns, or styles of clothing.
When we talk about how fashion blogging need to be feminist, plus size fashion bloggers are a great example of this in motion. They're advocating fashion for all. These ladies challenging our society's standards of beauty. They are women rallying for fat acceptance and believe in health at any size. Women who are sexually and ethnically diverse, and whose great style traverses the globe. They work alongside brands to develop and market clothing that is fashionable and accessible. They consistently prove you can work in fashion and be stylish, without the impossible goal of being a 5″10, sized-two blonde model.
These are just a few handfuls of our favorites — I'd love to hear who your favorite plus-size fashion bloggers are in the comments below!
