5 Big & Tall Instagrammers You Need to Know

It’s no secret that men of larger sizes and taller stature often have trouble finding well-fitting (and fashionable) clothing. Menswear, however, has come a long way in recent years, with minor and major labels catering to a broader customer base by providing extended sizes.

Why the sudden change? We can thank the body positivity movement and social media influencers for pushing the boundaries of what it takes to be stylish.

These influencers have charisma that has garnered them a strong social media presence. They primarily use Instagram, but many of them have their own websites, YouTube channels, and/or blog, where they share snippets of their day-to-day life, styling tips, and #OOTD (outfit of the day) inspiration for dressing as a big guy.

We’ve rounded up 5 plus sized male instagrammers you need to know if you want to dress to impress for your size.
