Loving yourself, wasn’t a thing for woman who didn’t have size that used to be written in some unknown book of beauty standards. Women dreading to lose and envying those who could dress up didn’t enjoy any attention, care or even acceptance from anywhere.
This changed. Most people perhaps started to notice when the change started to go viral with the brands and they started entertaining plus size women. Credit goes to strong women who decided to take hold of the situation and changed the fashion world forever.
You probably know some of them or most of them. Here is another refresh of who they are and why it is totally amazing to have them online.

About the very well-known Gabi Gregg of Gabi Fresh blog
now, it is hard to believe that once she couldn’t land herself a job. It’s no sad story as Gabi comes from a very supportive family led by bi-racial and super confident parents. But Gabi did face her problems when her chubbiness and bi-racial self was not very well accepted but she dared to face it. It was because of unbeatable confidence induced in her by family that Gabi picked up on idea of blog quickly after her graduation in 2008. In most of her online interactions, she boldly admits that women in online communities were the first one to inspire her.
Once she did it, new ways opened up for her. The way to the admiration of fans and the way to entry in meaningful fashion advice panels like Create and Cultivate Summit where she is one of the advisors. Her work with the swimsuit collection in 2015
is an important turn around in “Fat turns fabulous” chapters. The swimsuit designs for the fat-fab fans, perfectly explains why this fashion journalist doesn’t appear with the new post everyday coz when she does, it’s something worth noticing.
The number one Beyonce fan (as she claimed in an interview) and believer of quality over quantity uses her confidence and attitude in every look she carries. For closer connection with this body image celebrity, people can follow her on Instagram
where she is more active.
