Body-Positive Fashion Icons to Follow

Written by: Carla De Guzman/Sunday, Feb 25, 2018 11:33 AM

In a world that loves an ideal body type, it’s easy to feel like the ugly duckling when you’re a size over the "ideal." But the body-positive woman knows that the world isn’t as small as it often seems. While our bodies can change, and we always want to be the healthiest we can be, there is a lot that goes into remembering to love yourself, whatever size you may be. 

To celebrate your newfound love for your body, we’re listing six body-positive fashion icons that we love, and why you should follow them for your daily style inspiration!

For a lovely dose of plus-size vintage and sophisticated style, look no further than Girl With Curves herself. Tanesha’s looks are always polished and beautifully put together. If you needed a little inspiration for your work looks, we highly recommend giving her Instagram a follow.

Nadia is honestly one of the most gorgeous plus-size models slaying the Instagram game. Her looks are a little more daring, more casual, but always oh-so-sexy. If the rockstar vibe is definitely something you want to channel, Nadia’s the Instagram girl to follow. 


Nicolette Mason | @nicolettemason

Nicolette rose to fame with her blog and with her Marie Claire fashion column. Her style teeters precariously on the edge of classy and wild (green cheetah print coat, anyone?) but gives you a bit of that New York/LA vibe. Plus her pug is really cute, too!


Stacy and Danah Gutierrez |

In our recent interview with the plus-size wonder sisters, we couldn’t help but talk about fashion. Their Instagram page highlights body positive and skin-loving quotations, along with showcasing the girls’ fierce, sophisticated style. 


Ragini R | @kittehinfurs


A post shared by Ragini R (@kittehinfurs) on

There’s something inherently sweet about following Ragini’s Instagram feed. Aside from gorgeous aesthetics, her vintage style captures the essence of being a woman in the older eras, when curves were much preferred. Who doesn’t love a bright pop of red? 


Jassmyne Jay | @jazzmynejay


A post shared by Jazzmyne (@jazzmynejay) on

Street style to the extreme is how we would describe Jazzmyne’s feed. As a producer at Buzzfeed, she’s not afraid to explore the wilder side of style—including her beret collection. Also, matching a gorgeous tube dress, opera gloves and fur with Adidas superstars is everything. Everything.
