Fashion is a business that has been historically exclusive – it’s not just about the clothes. But, with digital innovation and demand for inclusion, fashion is transforming.
Plus size models and designers are gradually entering the mainstream fashion scene, which is redefining what plus size fashion can mean. The inclusivity of this movement means that all body types can participate in this new form of fashion.
It’s easy to see how Instagram has played a huge part in boosting the popularity of plus size fashion among women who are not traditionally considered fashionable from a size-related perspective.
Surrounding myself with fashionable women whose bodies, shapes, and figures resembled my own was instrumental in becoming more comfortable with fashion. It was imperative to provide myself with fashion forward examples of what was possible, especially for a visual learner such as myself. Intentionally following plus size fashion bloggers kept me in the loop of top tier designers and finding creative ways to wear clothing. Most importantly, it allowed me to see myself and actually imagine the bomb ass options available! Here is a list of my top bloggers on Instagram!
Frankie serves as an art director, creative, entrepreneur, and model. I was instantly drawn to her fiery personality and the clear value she had in her presentation. Not to mention her love of her family and incredibly cute pup Frank. Frankie isn’t a head turner, she’s a neck breaker! She exudes how to feel at any size and if there’s one thing Frankie will do, she gon’ show some leg! Frankie is also the owner of Frankie’s Tees and has had multiple collections with Fashion-to-Figure.

I found Ashley’s profile in 2021 and was instantly obsessed with her attention to budget friendly fashion! Ashley has described her style as stylish, comfortable, and effortless (right up my alley)! She is go-to for looking relaxed, yet like a million bucks at the same time.
