TOP 10 PLUS-SIZE FASHION BLOGGERS YOU NEED TO FOLLOW ASAP
I was shocked recently to find out that I hadn’t published a fashion blogger roundup for a whole YEAR.
I’d intended this series to be a regular thing… I LOVE writing these posts, researching and finding new-to-me bloggers (and promoting my favourites). They seem to go down well with you guys too.
My featured bloggers lists take some time to compile, and none more so than today’s topic: plus size fashion bloggers. I have been wanting to write this post for ages – there are SO many amazing, incredibly stylish plus size girls out there.
As always with these lists (I’m glad to say), their styles differ wildly from one to the next. If you’re looking for plus size fashion inspiration, this is your one-stop shop for every style imaginable – from urban, edgy chic to romantic and ladylike, from office chic to everyday casual. There should be something for everyone.
I do believe, however, that you don’t have to be plus size to take inspiration from them. I never restrict myself to only being influenced by women whose body shape is like mine, or whose outfits I would wear from head to toe. I like to be inspired by colour combinations, by shapes and silhouettes, by accessories. Whilst it’s of the utmost importance that EVERY size/shape/colour/ability, etc. of women is represented in the media and online, that’s not to say we should dismiss those that “don’t look like us” when it comes to great style.
I’ve also, as I always try to do, hopefully found some bloggers that don’t show up on the usual “Top 10…” blogger lists. For example, I always get frustrated with lists of over 40 fashion bloggers (I mean those compiled and written by journalists, not bloggers) because they tend to list the same names every single time. It’s lazy journalism. What I think they must do is Google search “over 40 fashion bloggers” and get a list come up. They rewrite said list, and ignore all the incredible lesser-known bloggers who are DESPERATELY deserving of attention.
I don’t ever want to do that, hence the reason it takes me a while to write these posts – I hope the results are worth it!
So this list has taken a long time, however, it has meant that many, many gorgeous, talented and creative girls have not made my list. I had to keep it to a reasonable number that I could cope with – I usually feature between 8 and 10 in these lists so 14 was a lot! I hope I’ve found some bloggers you may not otherwise have found or known about yourself.
I’ve included Instagram handles for each of them – but they are all bloggers. No Instagram-only influencers here. I still believe blogs have a LOT to offer – Instagram is merely a little slice into someone’s world. Please show your support and read, subscribe to and comment on their blogs if you become a fan.
And as I always like to say, I hope you love this list of fabulous fashionistas as much as I do…!

P.S. DO NOT MISS the swimwear special at the end. Images too inspiring to add in one or two here or there, I wanted to showcase these gorgeous women showing us that EVERY body is a beach body. We don’t have to showcase our own on the internet if we don’t want to, but these lovely ladies are out there proving to the world that no one who WANTS to wear a swimsuit or bikini should be denied the right to wear one. Oh, here I go with #iwillwearwhatilike again…
