Fat Asian Babes to Follow

We couldn’t let Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month pass without spotlighting a few people that you should follow for a dose of wanderlust, style inspiration, or motivation. Some of these humans are American others are not and since there is such little fat-positive Asian representation I made this list global.

Scarlett Hao

Scarlett is an influencer, marketing and fashion consultant, and the creator of the #asiangotcurves hashtag. Follow to add a pop of color and whimsy to your feed!

Aarti Olivia Dubey

Aarti of Curves Become Her has been inspiring us for years! They were recently featured in Vogue Singapore for the work they do to fight against fatphobia, mental health stigma, and ableism. This mental health therapist turned activist has also recently come out as non-binary.

Isabelle Yong

Plus size model Isabelle may look familiar to you if you follow this blog and our Instagram. She has been featured countless times on our Instagram because she takes stunning travel photos! We also interviewed this Malaysian-born and Austrlian-based model a few years ago.

Sarah Yenko

Follow Far for a bit of honesty, vulnerability, and lots of sexy! This Malaysia based babe is the fat baddie every one needs to be following.

Ratnadevi aka Sapphire Splendour is another person that has been inspiring us for years. From fashion and dating to mental health and religion this babe talks about it all! Watch us chat about the tradition of arranged marriages and Indian matchmaking.


Sydney is that friend you call to vent about work and boys then end up on the phone for hours talking about fashion and skincare. How do I know this? Sydney is that friend for me!


Faiza Tasnim is the self love advocate, color loving fashion stylist you need to follow yesterday. Her lewks are eccentric and bold in the best way. Her personal style is a combination of modest and club kid with a rotation of hats and wigs to match.
