There’s a new world of men on Instagram who are posting positive messages of size diversity. These trailblazers face a lot of the same issues as women, especially when it comes to language and self-identifying.
For women, we use terms like curvy, fat, BBW and plus size, while in the male world it’s big, chubby, king size, big & tall and brawny.
Here’s a few Instagram accounts to follow for big men’s style inspo and all-round male body positivity.
