See Who Made the List of The Top 25 Plus Size Fashion Bloggers in 2016
By Erik Krupp
After doing tons of reading and research, I have finally compiled what I would consider to be the top 25 bloggers that cover plus-sized fashion.
Plus sized fashion and bloggers that are covering this hot new topic are a hot new craze. Curvy women are starting to feel more comfortable with their body image. They are no longer satisfied with the scant selections of size 12+ clothes offered in many online and retail stores. As a result, they are actively seeking for fashion options and fashion and beauty advice. Because of this, they are searching on the internet for experts that understand fashion and beauty from the perspective of a plus-sized woman. The bloggers featured in my Top 25 list are such experts. I would recommend that you check them out. Some will resonate with your sense of fashion and some will not. I am sure, however, that you will find at least one or two blogs that will speak to your unique style and fashion sense.
Blogs that cover plus-sized fashion are some of the hottest sites searched on the internet.
The popularity of blogs devoted to plus-sized fashion is not surprising when you consider that 65% of American women are plus sized (http://www.cnbc.com/2015/04/08/retails-plus-size-problem-designing-for-larger-sizes.html). In fact, the average woman in the United States is a size 14.
Plus-sized women are frustrated and are actively seeking advice about fashion and beauty on the internet.
Although the plus-size apparel market is generating over $17.5 billion a year, there is a large number of curvy women that are still frustrated when they go out looking for fashionable clothes that will fit their body. Currently, only 17% of apparel sold in the US is available in a 12+ size. Because of this problem, many plus-sized women are actively searching for advice about what to wear and where they can purchase fashionable and stylish clothing. The bloggers featured in thin Top 25 List have also experienced their reader’s frustrations. Each blogger brings a unique perspective on how to complement their curvy body with beautiful and fashionable clothing.
Most of the bloggers in this Top 25 list have been featured in many of major fashion magazines.
Many of the plus-sized fashion bloggers in my top 25 list have appeared in major publications such as New York Times, New York Magazine, Vogue, Glamour Magazine, Refinary29, Seventeen Magazine, and Marie Claire and Redbook. Some them have also been guests on major television programs such as The Today Show, Dr. Oz, CNN Living, NY Daily News. The common feature of all of these bloggers is that they are all plus-sized. As a result, they have all had to deal with the difficulties associated with their size, including the difficulty in finding fashionable clothing and dealing with their body image.
In this list, you will find a very diverse group that will give you a unique perspective on plus-sized fashion.
One of my goals in creating this Top 25 list was to feature a diverse group. By doing this, you can get Some of these bloggers are professional plus-sized models. Another is a lawyer and Washington DC lobbyist. One blogger on this list is a television producer. The bloggers in this list also live in many different parts of the world including a variety of cities in the United States, North London in Great Britain, Australia, Canada and Japan.
The following is the list of the top 25 plus-size fashion bloggers in 2016.
Please note that you should not infer a hierarchy based on the numbering in this list. Each blogger brings a unique perspective and solutions to how they achieve beauty and fashion in their lives. As a result, readers will find that they resonate better with one blogger over another.
