What is midsize Fashion? Midsize refers to people slightly larger than society defines as ‘traditional’ but not quite into the plus size category. In recent years, the term “midsize” has boomed, particularly in light of TikTok’s body positivity efforts and Gen-Z’s emphasis on size.
Fashion lovers are sharing their favorite styles that fit them best through midsize influencers and bloggers on social media.
