Default Pinterest and plus size?

Does anyone have or follow any plus size fashion boards? All I seem to find are either fetishy or pin ups or some other type of subculture, which is fine but not exactly fitting for my lifestyle. My taste tends to run toward J Crew, Anthropologie, Banana Republic, Gap, a few things from Garnet Hill and Boden, etc. If only those stores stocked my size.

I do not like what I see in Lane Bryant, Avenue, Fashion Bug, Catherines, Dress Barn, etc. That's just not me. Obviously I'm trying to lose weight to get into the stores that carry things I like, but in the meantime I need some ideas.

I love looking at whole outfits on Pinterest but it would be great to look at things I could actually fit into.

agreed! I love and pin whole put together outfits on pinterest, but can't fit into most of those skinny jeans and boot styles. It is becoming annoying.

I typically look at tumblr myself... it's a little different in mostly people just posting their outfits, usually listing the stores where they get them as well. I follow lots of tags such as chubby fashion, plus size fashion. another big one is f***yeahchubbygirls, which i think has the most activity.

Def. not as neat and organized as pinterest but it certainly gives me ideas/confidence to try new outfits!

Did you hear of navabi? It offers exclusive designer plus size fashion in sizes 12 to 28. I love their styles, elegant but not out of date. Maybe you could find your style there.

I pin a mix of plus size and non-plus clothes. But most of the plus stuff is the usual suspects: Lane Bryant, Torrid, Forever21, and Eloquii (which sadly already closed). I haven't really found any good boards to follow though. I follow gabifresh on instagram, she has a blog too. She's adorable. http://www.gabifresh.com/

I follow Torrid. I get a lot of ideas for outfits from them, and I think they have plus-size bloggers pinned on their page that you can follow. I know they post things on their Facebook which showcase some plus size bloggers.
