Be inspired by 100 of the very best plus-size street style images from fashion influencers and tastemakers from around the world.
Plus-size fashion is daring, experimental, and deeply personal. There’s no longer any shame in not fitting the traditional ideals of beauty, as proven by Gabi Gregg, Tess Holliday, Beth Ditto, and thousands of bloggers and models around the world.
The online plus-size fashion community is loud, international, and confident. Millions of #ootd photos are shared every day, showing off amazing style and beautiful people. Plus+ gathers together the very best, and celebrates all shapes, sizes, and aesthetics—a beautiful, sharply designed, glossy collection to inspire everyone, plus-size or otherwise.
“My style is practical, stylish, feminine (at times) but most of all, true to me.”
– Quote by Chloe Pierre
PLUS + is a must buy coffee table book.
Are you a plus size woman?
Have you ever been told that you couldn’t wear a specific outfit due to your size?
If so, PLUS + is the book for you. With photographs of plenty of plus-sized women wearing whatever they want, this book will easily become your go-to when you need some inspiration in your day.
Each professional photograph is accompanied by a quote from the model.
These quotes range from:
“I dress for the celebration I want my life to be”
all the way to:
“Fuck flattering! No rules. Just Style.”
The included quotes run the gamut from sassy to demure, and from angry to inspirational.
Finally there is a book that celebrates fashion for regular sized women, rather than for stick people with no curves. Body positivity is the message.
As an added bonus, each photo layout includes the @ tag for each model which allows readers to go online and follow their favorite model even after finishing reading this book.
If, after reading, you do not come away feeling better about your body, and your personal style, then you are missing the point and I suggest you read it again.
I rate PLUS+ as 5 out of 5 Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ and I hope to see this book become the go-to present for all your female friends regardless of their dress size.
***Thank you to #NetGalley for providing me with a free copy of this book.***
