Current fashion market does not really provide plus size women with a big choice. Most women often get the answer "We don't have your size" in the shops. But fortunately that keeps changing. There is a growing number of plus size models and bloggers, who inspire women not to shy away from their curves, but to try wearing everything desirable. 

Cropped tops, bold patterns and bodycon dresses used to be no option for curvy women but that trend is changing now and women with beautiful forms can be fashionable with no restrains. Above I've selected the best plus size bloggers who are making a difference in the fashion industry and creating more opportunities for women.
