Given the current style and the number of women with curves today, I wanted to introduce you to a series of bloggers with amazing style and fresh looks. They’re not only killing the game right now, they’re also challenging it. As the Curvy Fashionista, I’m in love with plus-size style and the women who inspire me daily; it’s something I’ve have built my work around. We know it’s important to show women’s style in all shapes, sizes and colors. But too often, curvy and plus-size women aren’t represented.
Enter the game-changers: us, you, them. We’re changing the game. All of you reading this column are changing the game—daily. Remember, style is personal. It’s not about size, it’s not about money. It’s about the expression of ourselves. In the first of this series, I showcase some of the amazing sisters I know who rock their curves with passion, grace and style.

Stylist and icon, Chastity Garner gives real women real hope. I love her candor, how she styles herself, and her perspective on fashion and life. She challenges the status quo head on and looks gorgeous doing it.
Amarachi Ukachu of AmarachiUkachu.com
Always daring and pushing the envelope, I love how Amarachi Ukachu wears items we don’t see everywhere. She’s the epitome of someone creating new trends and working outside of the box. Not to mention, she’s sewing and creating the looks when she can’t find them in her size.
