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 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 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.
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 is a Filipina digital creator based in Vancouver, Canada. We’re obsessed with her vibrant photos and funny travel videos!
Karen is our queen of Disney style and the mom of the cutest little munchkin!
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.
This hottie also happens to be a contributor to this blog. Read some of her work here.
Vera is surviving motherhood and taking us along for the ride through her beautifully curated feed.
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!
In my opinion Catherhea is a creative genius! I’d been in awe of her work for years before reaching out to book a session. My visits to Malaysia going forward will include a session with this visual artist! Read her Fat Girls Guide interview here.
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.
Calla is a new kid on the block but we love her aesthetic. Her style changes with her mood and we’re here for all the bold accessories and fabulous prints.
Who did we miss? Are you following fat Asian travelers that should be on our radar? Let us know in the comments.
