The mainstream film industry and fashion magazines may not cater to the preferences of plus size women. But fashion and personal style have nothing to do with size. That is why plus size bloggers are enjoying success and loyal followers. Many of the plus size bloggers are not only stylish but inspiring. Their audience isn’t limited to other plus size women. All women dot on their fashion choices simply because their outfits are a breath of fresh air. If you haven’t come across the amazing fashion choices of plus size bloggers, here are a few choices for you to start. These seven plus size fashion bloggers have followers all across the world.
This award-winning blogger has definitely shattered stereotypes with her work. Her blog 'Girl With Curves' has taken her to prominent fashion magazines and fashion weeks. This Indian fashionista often uses her popularity to speak about self-acceptance and body positivity. Her work as a plus size fashion blogger started back in 2011 when she started simply posting her everyday looks while working in the tech industry.
Her fashion choices are a message of assurance for all women who are insecure. She once wrote on her blog: “Why am I always so afraid? Afraid of rejection, afraid of failing, afraid of letting people down? It all comes down to my own inner insecurities and today I’m done with it because guess what? Bad, embarrassing things happen and they’ll continue to happen. I’ve failed before, I’ve been rejected before, people have laughed before, and more important than letting anyone else down, I’m constantly letting myself down by not following through with things I love, out of fear and insecurity. So forget all of these silly feelings I’m letting take over my life at times because I’m done with insecurity.”

Nadia Aboulhosn is a Lebanese plus size fashion blogger who has grabbed the attention of most of the top fashion magazines including Vogue Italia and PAPER. She is known for designing clothing lines for Addition Elle. Nadia has been relentlessly working towards bridging the gap between mainstream fashion and plus size fashion since the age of 17. Her blog covers fashion, beauty, and lifestyle.
Nadia didn’t start blogging as a plus size blogger or influencer. People assumed that she is a plus-size model/blogger because back in 2010, many weren’t used to the idea of a woman who isn’t skinny posting fashionable photographs. According to her interview with PAPER in 2016, she doesn't mind being considered plus-size; it puts her in good company with other curvier bloggers and models who have shifted fashion and given many women a voice.
