Finding fashion inspiration as a plus-size woman is challenging for so many reasons, but this is quickly changing. As more women begin their journey towards self-acceptance, shattering these preconceived notions of what fashion is or should be, more sources of plus-size fashion inspiration are appearing everywhere. And it’s not coming from fashion magazines, TV, or any other mainstream big names out there.
Real women everywhere are finding their voice online through blogs or social media, connecting with people who are in desperate need of fashion inspiration. Together, we’re paving the way towards a more body-positive future that includes women of all shapes, sizes, backgrounds, and skin color. The challenge is finding the sources of inspiration when you haven’t started looking yet.
You might find many women giving you advice that just doesn’t match what you’re trying to accomplish with your style, saying this or that will make you look skinnier.

To help you get there and avoid useless advice like this, here are some of the most inspiring plus-size fashion sources that’ll help you shine the way you were meant to.
There isn’t a lot of fashion inspiration for plus-size women who want to show more of their bodies.
