Not all fashion blogs are geared towards size zero. Carmen Chappell Elkin looks at some of the best blogs for women of all shapes and sizes.
It’s a generally accepted truth that the fashion industry is geared to slim, somewhat unrealistic body shapes. As you progress on your weight loss journey, you might find it a bit of a challenge to stay on trend. A changing body shape means your style could also change. If you’re seeking inspiration from more realistic sources than fashion magazines, check out these fabulous bloggers. These girls are all dedicated to scouring the shops for the best styles available in a wider range of sizes, and offer loads of tips on how to style outfits.
