The world of curvy fashion bloggers has exploded over the past few years, with dozens of chic, relatable and downright gorgeous girls giving us serious wardrobe envy across social media. Some of them have become so influential that they now model for leading retailers or even design their own fashion ranges. See, all that posing and pouting in front of their garden gate is totally worth it.

Our favourite curvy bloggers come in a variety of shapes, sizes and styles, but they have two big things in common – great taste and stellar confidence. So, we asked them for their secrets when it comes to making themselves look AND feel as great as possible every day, in the hope that some of their magic might rub off on us…

 'Don't listen to the label! If you're a size 24 but love a size 20 dress, just give it a try. You can style things to be small or oversized and every brand measures up differently. Don't be put off by the number and you'll find so much more fashion available to you. I have things in my wardrobe ranging from 18 to 28!'

'If shapewear or comfort shorts tend to roll down on your body, create your own by cutting up a pair of leggings into shorts. I've been doing this for years to avoid the dreaded chub rub and it’s really easy! Simply measure the length and cut them so that they'll provide maximum comfort while remaining hidden under your favourite dress. They'll still give you a smooth silhouette under your clothes but they'll fit you perfectly and save you money at the same time.'

'Try outfits on with your hair and make-up done, or semi done. This can really change the way you feel about yourself in your clothes. I know: I’ve tried items on when I've just got out of the shower, looked at them and thought 'ugh' but as soon as I've got my face on and my hair done I can look at myself completely differently.'

'When you want to try a trend, don't feel obliged to follow it to the letter – choose an element that you're comfortable with and that makes you feel fabulous. The most fashionable thing on Earth is to praise other women and to accept praise yourself.'

'Step outside your comfort zone. Horizontal stripes are a yes. Patterns are a must.  Cool jumpsuits are a YASSSSSSSSSSSSSS! As long as you feel happy and you aren't about to get arrested then wear it and wear the hell out of it.'

'When shopping at high street stores, especially brands that are not exclusively plus, I try to size up whenever possible. Big box retailers often skimp on fabric, and I find that I get a much better fit when I go up a size or two from what's reflected in size charts.'
