SSBBW / FA Quote of the Moment

"I like to be the old fashioned gentleman. Nowadays, it is hard, though - because few women take it for what it is! But, with an SSBBW, it is almost granted - because she gets so much value from those small gestures that she generally will let them happen!" ~ Mogens (BC, Canada) [FA]

7 Fashion Bloggers to Follow on Instagram

The internet has made communicating and connecting with people all over the world so easy! And social media has gone further to bring it closer. We can see and buy anything we want - any style, fashion or trends from shops and fashionistas in different countries and cultures with the click of a button. No more excuses, no reason to wear the same things over and over again.

This month, we've put together seven Instagram accounts of plus-size bloggers who are savvy, style conscious and have an eye for the finer things of life.

We hope you draw some fashion and style inspiration from their accounts and maybe visit their blogs from time to time.

Crystal Coons @sometimesglam
Crystal Coons is a fashion and travel youtube blogger with deep love for the beach and showing off her body in bikinis. She loves her body and flaunts it in fashion statements which look simple yet look amazing. Check out her account for beachwear and travel inspiration.

Tanesha Awasthi @girlwithcurves
Tanesha Awasthi is a blogger and chief editor of girlwithcurves.com. Her account is filled with style advice, fashion tips, health nuggets, family and good living. She struggled with self- esteem and self-acceptance for a long time before gaining the confidence to share her personal style with the world. Luckily, what started as a personal style blog has grown into a lifestyle site inspiring other women to take charge of their lives.

Rochelle Johnson @iambeauticurve
Rochelle Johnson is an avid follower of fashion and a plus-size style expert. She is a queen who adores her body and adorns it with unique fashion statements. She uses instagram as a platform to catalogue her fashion adventures and share them with the world. With her growing audience on instagram, she has created a blog to share more content on fashion, travel and beauty. You can find her blog here.

Nicolette Mason @nicolettemason
Nicolette Mason is a contributing editor at Marie Claire. She partnered with Target to launch Ava & Viv, their plus-size line. She's also a Creative Consultant and lover of fashion. Her personal blog is a hub for authentic style.

TrendyCurvy @mskristine
Kristine is a plus-size blogger with an innate longing to stay trendy and stylish. She is a realist when it comes to fashion and believes that not every fashion item works for everyone. As such, she shows plus-size ladies how to wear outfits in the most flattering styles possible. She runs a blog too.

Hayet Rida @hayet.rida
Hayet Rida battled with weight loss and constant weight gain for some time. When she realised life was bigger than dieting and losing weight, she embraced her body and curves, and strived to be healthy and happy. Her instagram page exudes confidence and trendy fashion. Visit her blog.

Gabi Gregg @gabifresh
Gabi's instagram page has over 1000 pictures displaying the style of a beautiful lady. After graduating from college, Gabi realised a gap in the resources for young women of size 14 and above. Hence, she created her blog to share her fashion advice, to encourage plus-size ladies to have fun in styling themselves and ignore the mainstream fashion advice of "dress for your body type".

I really love these bloggers! They keep creating fresh content for fashion inspiration for women of all sizes. Ever have one of those days when you can’t think of an outfit? Check out their accounts for inspiration. Something's sure to fit and look great!

Fat Positive Blogs

Blogs are a wonderful source of information. I have found them to be a useful Fat resource, especially when it comes to body positivity and fatshion. It is so helpful to see what clothes look like on bodies that are shaped like ours. It is also helpful to know that there are others out there who have the same life struggles that we have. You might get a different perspective on how to deal with things, based on the experiences of others.

I recently joined a group of plus size bloggers. We are taking one fashion topic a month and doing a blog hop. Our first topic was leggings. We all did a blog about it, linked our blogs, and published them at the same time. It is so great to see the many different ways an item can be worn on a fat person, from smaller plus to super plus.

Here is a link to my blog. In it, you will find the links to all the other blogs.
