7 Curve-Friendly Lifestyle Bloggers And Models EVERYONE Should Be Following on Instagram

So, it's no secret that the fashion and beauty industries are finally starting to realize that beauty doesn't begin at a size two and stop at a size ten. For the past couple of years, the fashion industry has really started to rally behind women, (and men, too), of all shapes and sizes, and for that, all of us can be eternally grateful.

With that being said, if you're anything like me, you're probably not a size two or four, and you're probably looking for some curvy Queen inspiration from someone who looks more like you do than say, Gigi Hadid. (Not that she isn't absolutely gorgeous in her own right.)

A little while ago, I started searching for lifestyle bloggers and swimsuit models on Instagram who looked more like I did, and I was absolutely blown away with the amazingly empowering and self-affirming results that I was able to find.

It's such a breath of fresh air to be able to find prominent figures who look like most of us do. I'll make one thing clear though, it doesn't matter if you're a size 2 or a size 22, we all deserve to feel absolutely freaking gorgeous in our own bodies.

With that being said, here's a list of 7 curve-friendly lifestyle bloggers and models that I feel everyone should be following to add a bit of inclusive inspiration to their Instagram feeds.

This absolute queen rocks any look and gives women like me the courage and empowerment to take that bikini pic we've all been too scared to take.

Caitlin Cunningham


Her post the other day about the realities of how it feels to be a plus-size girl is spot-on!

Saving the best for last, because her feed is the stuff that my women's empowerment-needing dreams are made of!

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!
