Even though plus-size fashion is becoming more mainstream with the increasing popularity of models like Robin Lawley and Tara Lynn, there is still a large gap in the marketplace for curvy fashion that is both flattering and stylish.
If you're stuck for some fashion inspiration, look no further than these plus-size fashionistas from Ireland and beyond. With some bloggers, stylists and models in the mix you're sure to find a style soulmate!
We love these ladies and the positive body image message they're sending to women across the globe:
1. Louise O'Reilly: @stylemecurvy
This Dublin native is one of Ireland's most notable plus-size models and is on the books of eight agencies around the world. Wow. As well as a stellar modelling career, Louise also has an award-winning blog, Style Me Curvy, which "aims to promote fashion, beauty and style for every kind of curve and body type." Sounds like a winner to us!
2. Margie Plus: @margieplus
This New York-based stylist and blogger has a really edgy style with lots of punk rock notes. Check out her IG for some creative outfit ideas!
3. Allison Teng: @curvygirlchic
California girl Allison has been blogging at Curvy Girl Chic since 2009 and has been featured in Glamour, Seventeen and Marie Claire to name but a few. We love her easy, classic style!
4. Sian Howell: @bowfabulous
24-year-old UCD graduate Sian started her blog, Forever Fabulous in Bows, to combat "a severe lack of Plus Size fashion blogs from Dublin/Ireland." Follow her on Instagram for some seriously glam outfit posts.
5. Nadia Aboulhosn: @nadiaaboulhosn
This half-Lebanese stunner got her break when she won American Apparel's XL Model Search back in 2011. She has since worked on shoots for a number of high-end fashion magazines but is best known as an amazing street style fashion blogger.
6. Candice Huffine: @candicehuffine
Candice is definitely one of the most influential plus-size models in the world, having been featured on that iconic Vogue Italia cover along with fellow curvy ladies Robin Lawley and Tara Lynn. We adore her sleek but edgy style choices.
