In fashion, it’s the stereotype that thin is always in, but if you’re a curvier, carb-loving lady like we are, you know that it’s sometimes difficult to gauge how we’re going to look in the season’s hottest trends against those overly Photoshopped, matchstick-thin fashion models. That’s why we love it when we see women outside of the cookie-cutter model shape ‘n’ size take on fashion trends and make them fiercely, fabulously their own! Enter five fashion-minded ladies behind some of our favorite style blogs that gear toward curvy and plus-sized fashions. With their amazing sartorial sensibilities, these five beautiful blogging babes are sure to inspire readers of any size!
Gabi “Fresh” Gregg caught our attention when the size 18 blogger confidently sported skimpy bikinis, including a killer black and white number, for xoJane’s Fatkini Gallery: 31 Hot Sexy Fat Girls in Skimpy Swimwear, which went viral, even getting picked up by Jezebel and featured on “The Today Show.” And all the attention is definitely deserved, with Gabi curating one of the best fashion blogs around, no matter if you’re a size 2 or 12. Originally known as Young, Fat and Fabulous, her blog GabiFresh showcases her fabulous personal style, which always stays on trend but never follow style rules or the status quo: “If you love fashion but you’re sick of being told to wear A-line skirts, wrap dresses, boot cut jeans, and slimming prints, this is the blog for you.” Well said Gabi!
