27 Canadian Plus Size Fashion Bloggers You Need To Know

Bloggers are changing the world and it's a revolution. They are quickly rising not only in popularity, but in influence as well. Brands cannot ignore the tremendous impact bloggers are having on retail, fashion, beauty and so many other industries. Through their tireless work (because blogging is VERY demanding), investment (yes, in many cases, they actually have to buy the items they style) and their unique and uncompromising sense of style, they are giving a voice to consumers about trends, sizes, prices, availability, diversity, quality and needs.

They are unapologetic. They are awesome. They are fearless. They are trailblazers in the body positive and beauty diversity movement. They stand courageous every day against criticism from trolls and fat shamers, to remain true to their principles. With utmost vulnerability, they pour their hearts out in the hopes of touching and inspiring a human being with a similar reality.

This blog is a BIG resounding, glorious, grateful tribute to them. I've rounded up 27 of the Canadian Plus Size Fashion Bloggers who have touched me in one way or another. I hope you take the time to visit them, leave a comment, follow, encourage them, and let them know that their work is not for naught.
