Plus Size Bloggers That Don’t Just Blog Fashion
Plus size fashion blogs give me so much motivation – they are my favourite thing to read. That said, I know there are loads of plus size bloggers that talk about more than what they’re wearing and I love those too, especially when fashion is something they just dabble in now and then. Here are some of my favourite plus size bloggers that don’t just blog fashion.
I have to admit, I might be biased because I have known Leighanne forever, and Darcy since she was born. However, I love the mix of content that Leighanne has on her blog. Even if you’re not a parent, you can enjoy what she writes about. I love her posts on days out with Darcy. She also does restaurant reviews, hotel write-ups and cooking tips. The effort she puts into making her content look good definitely pays off!
I don’t often read blogs from people outside of the UK when it comes to fashion blogs. This is because I get major envy when they blog something I’d love to wear, but can’t get without spending a small fortune. I really love Jay’s blog because they have taught me a lot regarding non-binary genders and the correct way to approach things. I follow them on Twitter and I love the fight they have for fat rights and other important topics such as gender and sexuality. If you’re looking for someone to enlighten you a little bit, I thoroughly recommend them.
I first discovered Rebecca when she would blog about fashion and fat politics. I love basically everything she wears, so it made sense to follow her on social media. Now she blogs about all sorts of literature and you can see she has a passion for reading different genres. If that’s something you’re interested in, I would recommend checking out her blog.
Although I have never tried yoga, I often see Jessamyn’s pictures and posts pop up on my news feed and they always make me smile. I really love the fact that she puts herself out there as being a yoga enthusiast and showing that it is something that is totally accessible to larger bodies.
Sometimes we can get carried away with the fact that plus size bloggers simply must blog about being plus size fashion and being fat. Although I think these voices are SUPER important, I love plus size bloggers that don’t just blog fashion, they just go about their lives without the focus being on size and what they wear due to their size.
Our very own Sophie home educates her children, and Wildling Wishes is her space to talk about her life home educating ‘The Wildlings’. Sophie is a 28+ blogger but Wildling Wishes doesn’t talk about fashion – instead, she talks about parenting and different education philosophies, with pictures of happy children thrown in for good measure!
Rachel is just one of those ladies who instantly makes you smile, and I love her work here on She Might Be. Heart Rachel talks about self love in many forms, from yoga to literal self-loving sessions as an asexual woman. Her work is positive and uplifting and, though it is a new blog, I can’t wait to read more.
And of course, the blog that spawned it all! As we all know, She Might Be is the brainchild of Georgina Grogan from She Might Be Loved. GG’s blog covers everything from beauty to pets, and has a healthy dose of fashion sprinkled across the posts whenever possible. I love looking at Georgina’s blog for lifestyle updates, learning more about her disability and of course – cute cat photos!
