As a small fat blogger myself, I have received some backlash in the past for associating myself with the Plus sized community. Surprisingly of all, this often comes from within the community, but it’s not often from bloggers. The facts are that I’m a size 16, which to many brands is plus size. I’m also 5 ft 10” and rather in proportion. There is a large privilege with being this size/shape in that most (not all) clothing brands stock my size. I am well aware of this privilege but pledge myself to the plus community because I adore their whole ethos. I love the body positive lessons I have learnt from being a part of this community and I have so much to be thankful for. If you haven’t heard about small fats or their privilege before then this post by Em is a great read to get you started. If you’d like further reading then head to Bustle’s article. You’ll probably be following a few small fats already and not have noticed, but here are 7 small fats you SHOULD be following!
Em at Terrible Tumbles
The whole reason I started blogging is because I saw someone else a similar shape and size to me looking absolutely incredible in her size 18 body. She had no cares about showcasing her fabulosity and it gave me a confidence I hadn’t felt before. This blogger was Em, from Terrible Tumbles. She’s definitely one to follow as looks absolutely bangin’ in every single snap she posts.
Charli at CurvyGirlThin
I’m tired of this dull weather and refuse to let it seep into my clothing so I’m already dressing like it’s spring … silk shirts and colour pops all the way! . . . #ukstyleblogger #ukblogger #styleblogger #plussizestyle #asseenoneme #asoscurve #asos_loves_curve #silkshirt #denimlove #theuncoolclub #colourpop #colourstory #ssc_springinmystep #psblogger #plussizeblog #plussizeblogger
This babe is one who has held my heart since I first clicked ‘follow’ about 3 years ago. If you’re wanting lingerie inspiration, cosy country walks, or gorgeous photos of dogs then she is your girl. Think of country style with sassy lingerie and you’ve got Charli!
Zoe at IKIWN
Oh don’t mind me, I’m just lounging around feeling like a million bucks in this gorgeous wrap maxi dress by a new plus size brand Love4All ❤️✨ They’ll be launching their website v.soon, which I’m told will have all available styles modelled by people of 3 different body shapes and sizes (how awesome is that??), but in the meantime keep up to date with all the latest from them over at @love4allplus
All HAIL the Queen that is Zoe. I mean look at her hourglass figure. She’s stunning! Vintage style with a modern twist she really gives me ALL THE VIBES when I’m looking for new clothes. If you’re not following her I suggest you go nosey… now! You’ll love what you find.
Chloe from Chloe Pierre LDN
The girl who taught me everything I know about posing in front of a camera, Chloe is a goddess. With an athleisure look meets swanky vibes, I’m all over Chloe’s wardrobe in every snap.
Tanesa from Girl With Curves
Every day should be #nationalstripesday! Remember friends: you CAN wear stripes at any size (horizontal stripes included!) and look amazing! Scroll to see some of my fave stripe looks for proof 😘 #stripes (PS – all of the clothing you see is super old and sold out, but I’ve linked to some similar items, including shoes, as well as my fave strapless bras, the accessories I’m wearing – the link is in my profile or http://liketk.it/2vd29 #liketkit @liketoknow.it) . . #girlwithcurves #curvystyle #curvyblogger #curvyfashion #taneshaawasthi #stripers #ootd #whatiwore #styleblogger #outfitinspo #outfitideas #style #fashion #fashiondiaries #igfashion #psfashion #psstyle #bopo #bodypositive #bodyconfidence #styletips #sanfranciscoblogger
Absolutely killin’ every outfit of the day snap. Tanesa’s snaps have me clicking ‘check out’ on almost every item.
Louise from Style Me Curvy
You’ll have seen Louise modelling for most plus size companies. Totally understandable when you check out her outstanding poses and killer fashion sense.
Could I count?
This stunning floral number by @simplybeuk has gone up live on the blog today. I think it’s one of my favourite looks so far 😍. Have you got an item of clothing that just makes you feel bladdy brilliant? 😛 . . . #ootd #psootd #simplybe #simplybestylish #floral #fashion #fblog #psblogger #psblogging #thesehappysquares #retro #vintage #teadress #spring #tall #wearecurves
Without being TOTALLY out of place. I’d love to be included in this list. I couldn’t write this post without showing my own face, so here it is in all its glory. Size 16 and loving being part of this community.
