There’s long been a disconnect between reality and the fashion world. The average clothing size of the American woman is reported to be between 16 to 18 and plus-size clothing accounts for 19 percent of the U.S. apparel market as of May 2021. Despite that, many clothing lines only go up to a size 12.

But things are changing. The rise of popular plus-size fashion influencers and bloggers is playing a role in helping the fashion industry see that many of their fans aren’t built like the size 0 models most companies use in their runway shows or online and print ads.
