International Women’s Day: Inspiring Plus-Size Fashion Bloggers to Follow

In honor of International Women’s Day, I want to celebrate and share some inspiring women in the fashion community. These are five of my favorite plus size fashion bloggers, entrepreneurs, models, and body positivity advocates that prove women should be celebrated on more than just one day. It is refreshing to see women with bodies like mine, changing the fashion world and encouraging others to be bold. They have proven that fashion is not just for one body type. Their unique styles and shared message of self-love inspire me and others everyday. I am grateful for these plus size role models for being themselves and sharing their stunning fashion looks in the process.

Here are some of the beautiful, fashionable, brilliant, and influential women I look to when I am in need of inspiration:

I want to thank these five incredible women and others for continuing to inspire me in all aspects of my life, from fashion to self-confidence. They have motivated me to celebrate my body and express myself through fashion. Young girls need positive role models of all sizes to encourage self-acceptance and individuality. It is important for women and girls to know that they don’t need to fit a certain mold to be beautiful. I hope to see more extraordinary plus size women like these influencing mainstream fashion in the future.

Happy International Women’s Day!
