Male Plus Size Fashion Vloggers to Follow! by Francesca Tysse
Fashion vlogs are the newest trend to get fashion inspiration, tips, hacks, advice and more, but where are the plus size male fashion vlogs? The fashion industry forgets to recognize the heterogeneity of body types and genders, but thanks to YouTube’s platform the plus size male community has the opportunity and affordances to express themselves, discuss topics that are not being covered, share advice and wisdom on subjects from fashion to life which fosters an inclusive community. With the uprising trend of plus size men of all sizes creating YouTube channels, there is now an existing support system out there for larger men who are insecure about their bodies and lifestyles.
Representation matters for all. Through the act of creating dialogue on plus size men’s bodies and clothing, vloggers are demanding to be seen, heard and respected not only online, but in fashion, work and life. Change across all industries for plus size bodies will occur once experiences, hardships, challenges, discrimination are all discussed, shared and heard. YouTube vloggers are taking on the platform’s opportunity to speak upon their experiences and hardships they face not only in fashion and clothing but also everyday life.
Want to follow inspirational plus size male vloggers? Here are the up and coming vloggers to know and follow.

It’s important to recognize and showcase love for all body types. Embracing the body that one is in and spreading the love they have for it, is a radical act. These vloggers are challenging the dominant society’s idealization of body image, self-love, self-respect, attractiveness, fashion and more! Creating an online presence has the ability to reach those who do not have a community or a support system. Always seek out inspiration, and share your experience, knowledge and advice with all. I hope to see more plus size male vloggers within the next year or so as we all continue to talk about how beautiful, valued, worthy and appreciated plus size male bodies are.
