Who hasn’t turned to Instagram when looking for style inspiration? I know that I have! Bloggers and influencers in the plus-size community are not only changing the world with their endless inspiration with fashion, but also for sparking a dialogue on marginalized bodies in media. It’s hard to ignore the tremendous impact that these Canadian influencers and bloggers are making, with their unique and uncompromising sense of style and their commitment to their platforms.
While they are unapologetic and fearless, these babes are also pumping out great content for everyone on the Internet to enjoy. And honestly, if you aren’t following them yet, you need to head over to Instagram, like right now, and give that ‘follow’ button a smash.
Here are 10 of our fave Canadian plus size bloggers and influencers, in no particular order.
I adore Margot who is representing for all the alt-goth cuties out there. She always has the perfect way to style an outfit. I love visiting her channel for all her makeup tips, and of course – reading up about her cats!
Although TiKa isn’t a blogger, I fell in love with her channel after she launched a side project, “The Fat Femme Sisters”. A Canadian musician and film composer, she uses her channels to advocate for the lack of representation for fat, Black, and femme folks in the media and online and I am so HERE FOR IT.
Sarah Anne is a bi-coastal babe bouncing between Toronto and Boston. While she regularly updates her YouTube channel, what we love about her pastel-soaked Instagram channel is the heavy fashion inspiration and honest refrains on life.
This self-described plus-sized Elle Woods is one of our favourite plus-size bloggers in Canada. Lisa has a zest for life that is unparalleled, showcasing through her channel that no matter your size, you can love yourself. Plus, her fashion is impeccable! We also love it when she does photoshoots with her mom!
In 2010, Musemo aka Mo of Miss Lion Hunter lost her job and rather than feel down and out – she launched her blog. It focused on sharing her style and her experiences as a fat, Black woman in Halifax and beyond. The Internet (and I) immediately fell in love and she was named one of Canada’s best dressed by the Globe and Mail in 2017.
Sister to Syed (aka The Prep Guy), Sara’s feed is full of stylish editorial-like shots with jaw-dropping outfits. You’ll totally want to go shopping in her closet, stat. But if that’s not possible, not to worry: she gives great tips on how to shop for your own next Insta-worthy look.
Assa is one of the original Toronto plus-size bloggers in the game, and one of the very first people I discovered when I started my plus size fashion journey. She gives incredible tips on styling and also talks openly and honestly about parenting too.
I don’t remember how we found Marielle Elizabeth, but I’m absolutely obsessed with her style. She has a minimalist vibe, which I adore. Plus, on each of her photos, she offers incredible tips on how to build your own body confidence.
There is a infectious vibe that Kaitlyn emits through her Instagram, and honestly, you just want to be her friend. Not only that, but she has an incredible fashion sense that’s displayed in all of her photos. Sometimes she will post hilarious Instagram videos with her friend, @thekarikemp and they are 100% worth the watch.
You may recognize Brittnee as a former Big Brother Canada contestant. But now, she’s a booked and blessed plus-size model walking runways in North America and looking goddamn fab on the ‘gram. Honestly, y’all need to follow this babe as she’s always glowing up the feed.
