lets be real, finding social media artists and celebrities that look like you is hard as a fat girl, even harder as a fat girl of color. so, im here to help out my fellow chubby bunnies w/ a list of my favorite plus size youtubers and bloggers! they cover everything from fashion, makeup, and hauls to romance, friendship, sex, advice, etc all from the perspective of fat girls! ive found these ladies to be very inspiring and helpful in the journey of self love. i hope its the same for you : )

sarah rae vargas

  • who? my personal favorite! she has such a laid back and warm vibe to her, you really feel like you’re a good friend while watching her videos. 
  • what? what i like i about sarah is that she isn’t chained to one ‘genre’ of youtube videos. there’s tons of hauls, makeup, and other fashion related things but my favorites series of hers are “lets talk about sex” (i learned to be so confident during sex because of this series), “ask sarah” a general faq and inquiry series, and her other chit chat videos
  • where? youtube - instagram - website - @ravingsbyrae

Sometimes, there’s a really fine line between Self-Confidence and Conceitedness… XD
