Industries who tell us what to buy and who to aspire to be, have crafted a certain standard of beauty. The use of the typical tall, willowy model has always represented femininity and beauty and in turn, has affected the way we view ourselves.
When it comes to fashion, a market not yet aware of the normal female existence, with a long list of “don’ts”, what can we do? Should we follow them? Should we care about these rules?
Instagram like other digital platforms provides the opportunity for individuals to express themselves freely. It is a source of inspiration and has a lot of influence on its viewers.
To look flawless -no matter your size- is to be who you are and be proud regardless of the ‘rules’. Here are some of our favorite plus-size bloggers that serve as an inspiration to the fashion industry and the body positivity movement!
Jamie Hamilton @jamie_jetaime
Have you´ve been told to not match prints? Jamie is the queen of matching things that you thought all your life were not compatible in fashion. If you like to mix Jamie is your girl.
Lisa Schoenberger @mustangsallytwo
“Fat girls shouldn´t wear stripes” yeah right. You tell ´em, Lisa!
Shomaila Maurer @emiratesfashionista.
We are being told all the time to not wear things without sleeves because our fat arms can´t look pretty. Well, Shomaila speaks for every one of us. Gorgeous as usual!
Shahd has an impeccable style Everything she wears looks fantastic. One of the things we are being told as plus size women is to not wear white. She proves us all wrong.
Sarah Alexander @fromsarahlex
Fashion doesn’t stop in a certain size, is not just for some and Sarah shows every time so. Fashion should be for all.
Hanane Fathallah @curvynounzie
“Skinny jeans are not for plus size women” there it goes another rule that may or may not be for you. Hanane Fathallah broke that rule with some simple and cute styling that you can follow.
These women have surely pushed the boundaries of the fashion industry and are lending to the body positivity movement one fabulous pose at a time!
