Fashion is fascinating to me, because it intersects and connects art, commerce and politics.
Particularlyyyy body politics.
As body positivity and body autonomy have become more popular, alongside the rise of plus size fashion bloggers – there’s been a noticeable lack of plus size men! (Or “husky” or “big and tall” or “fat” – whatever descriptor you want to use!)

Because women’s bodies are more policed, it makes sense that women would be leading the charge! However, when you look at straight size creatives, there does seem to be a noticeable difference in the number of straight-size verses plus size men!
So, I thought I should share some of my fave big and tall guys, and help y’all mix it up a little bit. Here’s a round up of plus size male models and bloggers to follow on social media!

Akeen is another plus size model, with some ink that I love! I love how this Brazilian creative mixes in selfies with modeling content.
7. Plus Size Male Model & Blogger – Troy Williams @ABearNamedTroy
Honestly, I had a REALLY hard time picking my fave photo of Troy. Troy is a plus size creative and gay man living in Los Angeles, who is doing a fabulous job of breaking down gender norms and stereotypes.
Troy isn’t afraid to shop in the “women’s section” and has a really keen eye for mixing colors and textures.
