There is a constant tension between idealistic and realistic perceptions surrounding body image and these plus-size fashion influencers are championing a positive outlook that helps to liberate every woman around the world. Whether a model appearing alongside stereotypically svelte figures in magazines or creating an original space online through social media, these plus-size fashion influencers are taking the world by storm.

So much so, in fact, that many of the plus-size fashion influencers are now branching out into bigger projects. A key example is Chastity, owner of Garner Style. She spearheaded the #BoycottTarget hashtag, which got the attention of the retailer in a big way. Now she's part of its latest collection, which is geared towards more full-figured women. It's comprised of accessible and affordable stylish clothing.
