Plus size chic fashion bloggers?

I used to be very 'put together' but have put on a shit tonne some weight and am struggling to style myself (I'm a size 18/20).

My go to items were always very fitted dresses which now make me look like an overstuffed sausage. I'm 34, happy to wear some fashion pieces but prefer a more classic (but not frumpy) look.

I thought I'd follow a couple of fashion bloggers for inspiration but not sure who...

The few 'plus size' I hate that term bloggers I've seen have either been aimed at women in their 20's/wear quite cheap clothes or are seriously into the whole retro/50s/pin up style which I think looks fine but probably not for the office grin

Any recommendations of plus size bloggers who go for the chic/quality/put together kind of look?

Hi I like Callie Thorpe a lot - I am also looking for other inspiration so hopefully some other ideas will be suggested! X

I can't be arsed following fashion bloggers (I'm one of those into the retro 50s thing but only half heartedly for the office LOL) I'm same size as you, but older.
Have you had a trawl through these?
( I started, but again, can't be arsed smile )

Can't remember how I came across Becky Barnes but she wears some lovely things in a mix of prices & she doesn't just write about fashion.

I like that Grace Francesca girl. She's in her 20's but dresses normal x
