For people who wear seemingly in-between clothing sizes, the topic of fashion can be quite complicated. The truth is, it doesn’t have to be—just check out these mid-size content creators for your next fitspo.
Apart from the unsolicited comments of our Titas during a family reunion and the struggle to find half-decent clothes that actually fit from top-to-bottom, being mid-sized in the Philippines is easier said than done. From the get-go, I’ve been totally obsessed with trendy magazines, outfit ideas from Pinterest, and playing dress-up. But if you’re like me – a 5-foot-3, 150-pound woman – we’ve always had a love-hate relationship with fashion. We love the latest looks and putting pieces together, but we hate when brands don’t accommodate mid-sizes or only showcase their clothes on specific models.
For some reason, there’s a lack of representation for fashion girlies who fall somewhere in the middle of the clothing-size spectrum. While petite and plus-size fashion are featured everywhere, what about in-betweeners?
Mid-Size AKA In-Betweeners
Before we dive deeper, let’s clarify what we mean by being mid-sized. These are bodies larger than women’s straight sizes (typically ranging from 0 to 8) but smaller than plus sizes (usually starting from 18 and above). AKA ‘in-betweeners,’ it has become the go-to phrase for labeling this often-overlooked size range.
Thankfully, there are content creators who are showing our for the mid-sized girlies. Besides spreading messages of body positivity, they talk about their personal style, share shopping recommendations, and provide plenty of inspiration for every body type that’s in between M-XL. If you’ve ever wondered, ‘what will that look like on me?’ here are five fashion influencers to follow ASAP.

@curvygirlcoco I grew up hearing that I was wasting my tall (5’8”) height because I was ‘chubby’. No matter what I did to try to be skinny, I always go back to my same body. When I finally said f* it & just let my body be – I was living a more happier stress-free life. #curvygirlcoco #bodyneutrality #selflove ♬ original sound – every7thng
