Check out these 15 Plus Size Models Who Proudly Embrace The Term Plus!

This past week Ashley Graham BROKE the #plussize internet when she responded to a follower on Instagram and said ” she never claimed plus-size”. The comment was on @ashleighchubbybunny instagram post about her new collection with Pretty Little Thing.

#embracetheplus

To many the news that the face of “plus-size” in main stream fashion and media would claim to have never embraced being a plus size model came as a shock.

Others, were disappointed and decided to unfollow her. I decided to take to my personal page and chatted with numerous people about this issue. So many people were feeling hurt so I decided to end the week on a positive note. I asked for them to send me the Instagram profiles of the plus size models who are out there working that they feel are not being recognized in a bigger way AND embrace the term #plussize #embracetheplus.

Below are 15 of many models who were submitted for recognition:

When asked how you would style the new @OldNavy Rockstar Denim with Secret-Slim Pockets, you gotta say “I can show you better than I can tell you!” I had the most fun styling these jeans for the fall and I am honestly in love with the fit! The angled pockets are designed for curves and the hidden elastic waistband eliminates any chance of awkward gapping – my personal denim nightmare! Head to @Bustle to read about my personal style and to see how else I styled these fall must-have jeans!✨LINK IN BIO✨ #OldNavyStyle #sizeYES #Ad . . . . #plussize #plussizefashion #plussizemodel #plussizeblogger #plusfashion #plusmodel #plusblogger #psootd #psmodel #psfashion #psblogger #psfashionblogger #goldenconfidence #effyourbeautystandards #celebratemysize #whowhatwear #whowhatwearing #curves #blackgirlswhoblog #bblogger #whatfatgirlsactuallywear #beauty #curlyhair #naturalhair #naturalhairstyles #denim #fallfashion
