Another great hashtag was created by popular model denisebidot, who also happens to be a wonderful woman, and thus her insightful tag #thereisnowrongwaytobeawoman doesn't surprise me. There is also  #nowrongway  How right she is!

calliethorpe is another UK lovely with the sweetest Welsh accent you ever did hear! Her awesome blog is, From the Corners of the Curve, and has led her to much success. She has a delightful new Instagram, theconfidencecorner which is described as, "A feeling of self-assurance arising from an appreciation of one's own abilities or qualities." which you may be featured in if you add the hashtag #theconfidencecorner 

Megastar theashleygraham began the #beautybeyondsize hashtag

Edith Dohmen for Mart Visser

edithdohmen is a stylist known for her emphasis on the 'inbetweenies', those women considered too big for mainstream high end fashion, and too small to fit in the Plus category.  She hails from the Netherlands and her movement is perfectly summed up in her hashtag #styehasnosize     

Sexy Australian/Italian model stefania_model began the controversial #DropThePlus  movement, as she believes- "Maybe the plus-size label served a purpose to begin with, but it's now time for complete acceptance, for us to all just be called models and to stop the industry pigeonholing us." Her point is further accentuated with her tag #DropTheStigma

honorcurves is a self-love advocate and founder of the popular #honormycurves and #honorcurves 

 margotmeanie started the #alternativecurves hashtag to help "celebrate diverse alternative, quirky, goth and non-mainstream plus size fashion"  Way to go!

World traveling, style guru itsmekellieb created her blog, "And I Get Dressed" and the adjoining hashtag #andigetdressed She is a marketing maven and that definitely shows in her carefully curated site.

I was fortunate enough to cross paths with Kellie in London and my only regret was not having enough time to get to know her better!

The delightful megastar of the Plus size movement, gabifresh, first made her mark back in 2010 when she was voted to be MTV's first-ever Twitter Jockey. Since then her cutting edge blog GabiFresh has led her far, she coined the well known phrase #fatkini  which went viral and she ended up teaming up with SwimsuitsForAll to create her own line of stunning swimsuits which offers up to size 24 #gabifreshxswimsuitsforall Tag yours!
