More than likely, you are part of a Facebook Group or two (or three or four or five…). Whether it be one for where you live, or a shared interest, the Facebook feature is blowing up. Sometimes, it is the only thing in our notifications. But did you know that there are quite a few plus size Facebook groups?
Ohhhh yes. These groups, as Mark Zuckerberg stated, “are by far the fastest growing areas of online communication” in a blog post labeled A Privacy-Focused Vision for Social Networking.The rise in popularity for this is due to people craving connection, but in a more private way; the “digital equivalent of the living room.”
This is in contrast to public profiles and posting on your personal page because “privacy gives people the freedom to be themselves and connect more naturally, which is why we build social networks.”
So how does plus size fashion fit into all of this?
This is where these plus size Facebook groups come into play. To satisfy the need to have a safe space with like-minded individuals with the comfort of having a private group.
So, we’ve rounded up just a FEW groups that you MUST know in this space!

Plus Size Outfit Share
Insyze’s Facebook group didn’t want to focus on selling plus size clothing. Instead, they wanted to create a community of people who wanted to share looks they’re proud of, ask for advice and share plus size fashion tips.
In just over a month, the group has almost reached 1,000 members who actively participate in discussions, offer compliments and hit that like button more often than not.

These are just a few of the plus size Facebook groups we have come across! BUT! There are so many different plus size Facebook groups to suit a variety of your interests and needs.
We are lucky to be surrounded by such inspirational and beautiful people on Instagram daily, but there is a large number of our community that aren’t as comfortable sharing their lives in such a public display.
Did we share or miss your favorite plus size group on Facebook?
