1. Girl With Curves
Although the stereotypical fashion image is of an ultra-thin model showcasing the latest clothing designs, the reality is somewhat different. Few of us have the ultra-slim profile. Many people carry a few extra pounds and struggle to imagine themselves wearing what you typically see on the catwalk.
Girl With Curves targets everyday people, who don’t fit the traditional model’s profile. It describes itself as being “a multimedia, award-winning platform made possible by people who believe women deserve to look and feel beautiful, regardless of weight, shape or size.”
It was created by Tanesha Awasthi who has now become one of the world’s favorite plus-sized fashion bloggers. She tries to help “real women” solve their fashion problems, along with the other areas they struggle with like self-esteem, body, image, and motherhood.
The blog includes trends, style tips, beauty advice, parenting, and wellness – all with its plus-sized audience in mind.
