For YEARS women have been on the front lines for the body positivity movement and fought with fashion clothing companies to design clothing that fit plus size bodies because everybody is different.

And coming from a male perspective, their efforts should be applauded. They opened the doors for body positivity, body inclusion and forcing the hand of popular fashion companies to produce clothing for women of all sizes. However, it reaches beyond the realm of fashion and body positivity, plus size women are no longer being forced into stereotypical roles. So, the advancements that men have made in the fashion and body positivity, we definitely owe it to the countless courageous women that have been on the front lines.

Within the past two years, we have seen a rise in plus men’s fashion.

There is a rise of plus male models and influencers are rising. Trust me, I am here for it all. I applaud the men that are putting themselves in a position to empower others and share their experiences. There are men with all different heights, weight and body types.

Many of us are familiar with @zachmiko, @thebigfashionguy and @builtuprealnice. Here I will list some of my favorites and hopefully, you will get familiar with them too!

Here are some plus male models and plus influencers that you want to make sure that you follow.

1.What does it mean to you to be apart of #WeAreBigAndTall by @dghramm ? • • What being part of this project with Darnell and my fellow Plus models? It means that we are choosing to stand up and kick down those walls and barriers that society has put in place that Plus men can’t model, Plus men can’t inspire or do what our smaller counterparts can. YES we can and YES we will. We all come in so many different shapes, sizes and backgrounds but we all have a common purpose and it’s to inspire those that feel they can’t and show them they can. • • Photography: @tonytrottphoto • • #BigAndTall #streetfashion #streetstyle #urbanfashion #malemodel #mensfashion #beardgang #beardporn #malefashion #bigmensfashion #bigandtallmodel #malestyle #fashion #fatshion #plussizemalemodel #plussizemodel #effyourbeautystandards #brawn #plussizemenswear #plusmenrevolution #brawnsquad #BodyPositivity #WLYG

#WeareBigAndTall is a project I wanted to bring to life to shed some light on the under representation & misconceptions of plus male models. My mission is to represent & show what the Big&Tall Man are all about. . Because we're Big&Tall, it doesn't mean we're not capable of doing the things a industry standard size model can do or that we shouldn't have the same opportunities. Doesn't mean we're not worthy of proper representation or respect in society or be fairly represented in the fashion industry, because guess what? We wear clothes and have killer style too! Our appearance, height, body, size & shape should not be seen as "outside the norm. No more society or industry standards. I mean, who even set the standard? . I’m not here to be “The Standard”. I’m here to go against the norms of life and the industry by simply being me, not a mold. To show and inspire people to love themselves and make there dreams a reality, amongst all the criticisms and “No’s”. Anything is possible & I’m a walking example of it. – @dghramm 📸: @tonytrottphoto . . #celebratemysize #goldenconfidence #effyourbeautystandards #bodypositive #plussize #plussizefashion #plussizemodel #honormycurves #plussizeblogger #bigandtall #bigandtallfashion #plussizemalemodel #brawn #bigandtallmodel #mensfashion #menswear #menstyle #mensstyle #fashionblogger #styleblogger #model #antm #styleandcurve #hypebeaststyle #fashionbombmen #statemgmt #drmartens #drmartensstyle #liveinlevis
