Always a heated topic, the fashion industry’s minimal use of realistically proportioned models creates an ongoing discussion…
I was looking on the Refinery 29 site today and saw a post about the growth of blogs directed towards the more generously proportioned fashion lovers.
Some valuable tools these blogs offer are fashion resources and tips for full figured women. These blogs are not much different, nor should they be, from any other fashion or style blog, except for the fact that they portray women with curves in a refreshing way while offering style tips to incorporate these key pieces in your own wardrobe. You’ll see collages of trends for instance, and the model pictured will be in the larger size range. Realistic attire for the modern woman.
Here’s a list of the top plus size blogs being talked about (and please don’t be offended by their play on words, these blogs are out to make nice!)
