When it comes to plus size visibility, it’s so important to show the beautiful diversity of the plus size community. That includes larger fats and those of all different body types and those in more marginalized communities.
One underrepresented community in plus is definitely the Asian American and Pacific Islander communities. We want to change that narrative, and continue to amplify and support plus size Asian American and Pacific Islander influencers, models, and creatives bringing their unique voice and perspective to the plus size fashion community!
8 Asian American & Pacific Islander Plus Size Influencers We Love
By amplifying and supporting Asian American and Pacific Islander plus size influencers and public figures, we actively fight the harmful stereotype that says that all Asian women are supposed to look a certain way.
Unfortunately, the harmful stereotype that all Asian women are meant to be petite is still highly prevalent. But, the influencers and activists mentioned above and many others we may have missed are actively working on smashing that harmful narrative and showing that no one body type is more ideal than the other.
Who are your favorite AAPI plus size influencers?! We are always looking for more folks to follow and get inspired by!
