8 Best BBW Dating Apps For Plus-Size Singles

Are you looking for BBW dating apps for dating beautiful plus-size singles? 

With so many new dating apps and dating sites aimed at the general population, it can be really hard to find the type of person you’re looking for.

Big and Beautiful Women and big handsome men are definitely out there, but the last thing you want to do is spend all day searching through profiles of people who are not interested in dating someone of a bigger size.

Not to mention, people on apps like tinder can be really rude to plus size women and men so you definitely wanna make sure you're on the right platform.

The good news is that there are plus size dating apps that are exclusively focused on BBW dating. And it’s exactly what you need in your dating life right now. 

In this article, I’m going to take a look at the best plus size dating apps. I’ll be taking a look at how they work, and how much they cost, and I’ll also be sharing with you my personal experiences using these BBW dating sites. 

Best BBW Dating Apps & Sites:

1. WooPlus

With over 200,000 active users each week, WooPlus is the OG of the BBW dating site world. Its zero-tolerance approach to fat-shaming/body shaming has helped to seal its popularity. While the male-to-female ratio is 2:1, there are still enough curvy women. The signup process is a breeze and takes a matter of minutes because Woo. Searching for other users is free but you can’t message someone until a) you match with them and b) you upgrade your account.

I was slightly put off by the male-to-female 2:1 ratio before I signed up. But I soon learned that the number is completely irrelevant. As long as you upload your best pics and be your charming, most flirtatious self, you’ll do okay. 

I landed two dates within my first week on WooPlus app. I typically started by sending gifts to other members (although sometimes I “poked” them), and I found that this was a better way to grab people's attention than a direct message. 

That said, I made sure to add lots of details to my profile (the profiles on WooPlus tend to be very detailed) and I made changes and improvements as I went along. A lot of my success hinged on my witty answers to the personality questions. The funnier you are on this app, the more success you’ll have. Read WooPlus review.

Pros

  • The best site for Big Beautiful Women,
  • Lots of active profiles,
  • Zero tolerance toward body shaming,
  • If you upgrade your account, you can send messages to people who aren’t even a match, too. 

Cons

  • The male-to-female ratio isn't the best.

2. LargeFriends 

LargeFriends

LargeFriends is another BBW dating site aimed specifically at plus-size singles. It’s ideal for both casual and long term relationships. With around 15,000 active weekly users, LargeFriends isn’t the biggest BBW dating site around. But, it comes with a blog that is a great way to meet curvy singles, and everyone who uses the site is open, friendly, and non-judgemental.

The sign-up process takes 5 minutes max, and you need to fill in who you are, what you’re looking for, your age, your location, and a few other basic details. You’ll also need to write yourself a catchy headline and fill in a brief description of yourself, and what you’re looking for. 

Then, you can either search for members one-by-one via a feature called Spark, or you can glance at multiple members at the same time. To send messages, you need to upgrade to a premium account. You can also add people to a list of favorites, and – if you’re not sure what to write – you can shoot them a wink. 

You can upload as many as 26 pics, and I made sure to upload numerous that showed me from different angles. I also posted a few blogs and made several contacts that way. Overall, I found LargeFriends to be a very body-positive dating app that can be used to land dates and make new friends.

Pros

  • Lots of great features 
  • Aimed specifically at BBW/curvy women
  • Can add as many as 26 photos

Cons

  • Need to subscribe to send messages.

3. eHarmony 

eHarmony

eHarmony is a premium dating app for singles who are seeking long-term commitment, and possibly even marriage. If you’re looking for love, this could be the best dating site for you. Creating an account takes a good 10 minutes, and you need to fill out a compatibility quiz and a personality test, as well as add some pictures. 

Once your profile is ready, you can send winks to other users, but you need to upgrade to send messages. If you’re not a fan of writing opening messages, the app lets you ask a series of automated questions to a potential match. If you both like each other’s answers, you can then reveal your whole profile. 

eHarmony is a great dating app for long term relationships, but it's not aimed specifically at BBWs. There are BBWs out here, but you’ll need the patience to find them. 

Pros

  • Romeo is popular in northern Europe and mainly in Germany.
  • A good gay app for gay men who are traveling in Europe.
  • Women can enjoy the premium features for free.
  • The overall quality of matches is very good.

Cons

  • It isn't for casual daters.

4. BBWCupid 

BBWCupid

BBW Cupid is a popular BBW dating app that claims to have 40,000 active weekly users. It’s especially popular in the U.S.A, Canada, Australia, and the UK, and can be used for long-term dating or friendship.

The signup process (which includes a mandatory personality test) takes around 3 minutes and is fairly hassle-free. Once your profile is up and running, the app automatically puts a few matches in front of you. There’s also a free search tool to find other users, and you can send instant messages as soon as you’ve upgraded your account. 

Success came easy for me on BBW Cupid because it specifically pairs up BBW or BHM with their admirers (like me!). The key to success on this app is to be polite and respectful at all times because this is not a hookup app. It’s simple, clean, and easy to get to grips with. 

Pros

  • One of the few BBW dating sites with a considerably big user base.
  • Landing a match is easy. 

Cons

  • The free version is very limited, basically ineffective.

5. Match

match.com

The match is a popular dating site used by millions of people around the world who are looking for romance, love – and even marriage. It’s also the second-largest dating site in the world. Match.com isn't specifically for BBW dating but because of its massive user base, you'll easily find women of every size.

Signing up to Match is free and doesn’t take more than a few minutes. You can also search for other users for free, but to see who’s messaged you (and to message someone back) you need to subscribe.

The match is so confident that it will help you find the plus-size woman or man of your dreams that it even offers you 6 months' worth free if your first 6 months yield no success. 

Once my profile was up and running, I was deluged by visitors and winks. In a nutshell, Match is a very busy dating app that people take seriously. However, it’s for people of all shapes and sizes, so if you’re looking for a BBW, it might take you a bit of time. After one month of using it, I was able to land two dates with a BBW (Big Beautiful Women). 

Pros

  • One of the biggest dating sites with women of every size and type.
  • Lots of genuine users who are looking for long term relationships.
  • Don’t need to match in order to start messaging someone.

Cons

  • Usually Takes a little bit more time to find someone as compared to niche BBW dating sites.

6. OkCupid 

OkCupid

OkCupid is an LBGTQ+ friendly dating app that’s full of open-minded, non-judgmental people. While it isn’t aimed specifically at BBW singles, the fact that its millions of users are so tolerant means you shouldn’t find it too hard to find what you’re looking for. 

Signing-up takes a few minutes and you’ll need to answer a few personality questions. However, unlike most dating sites these days, OkCupid is free to send messages. 

There is a catch, though. The other person can’t see your message until they’ve matched with you, and you can’t see someone’s profile once you’ve sent your introductory message until they’ve matched with you. 

Because OkCupid isn’t aimed specifically at BBWs, it can be a little tricky to find what you’re looking for. However, I found that there are lots of plus-sized singles on here, and it’s simply a matter of having a bit of patience, filling out a detailed profile, and sending interesting (and funny and flirty!) messages. Success will then come, as it did for me. 

Pros

  • Free and easy to use.
  • LGBTQ+ friendly dating site.
  • Women of all sizes are there on the site.

Cons

  • Can be hard to land a match thanks to restrictions 

7. Plenty of Fish 

Plenty of Fish

Plenty of Fish (POF) is a very popular dating site with people of all shapes and sizes. It’s free to send messages, boasts almost a million daily logins, and is used by people who are looking for casual dating or something longer-term. 

POF makes you answer a very lengthy personality test before your profile is ready, and you will need to add a headline to your profile (to help it stand out in the search results) as well as some lines in your bio. Searching for other users is free, as is sending and receiving messages. To see who’s “liked” you, you’ll need to upgrade. 

It’s also not difficult to find BBWs here. For every page of search results, I’d say there was always at least one BBW (Big Beautiful Women) in my experience. 

Pros

  • It's free to send and receive messages.
  • A lot of search filters to find someone of your choice.
  • It's pretty popular app with 4 million daily active users.

Cons

  • A lot of time is wasted on conversations.

8. Tinder

Tinder

Tinder was the world’s first “swipe” app that’s still used by millions of people today. It’s ideal for casual sex encounters, friend with benefits, and long-term dating. 

Creating an account and sending messages is completely free. You can add anything you like to your profile, or leave it totally bare. However, there’s no search function – instead, you’re given an endless queue of potential matches which you have to swipe right or left on. If you match with someone, only then can you send them a message. 

While Tinder isn’t aimed specifically at BBWs, there are lots of plus-sized singles who use the app. If you’re seeking a (Big Beautiful Women) BBW, you should do what I did and state this in your profile.

Overall, I landed 5 dates in 2 weeks with Tinder. 

Pros

  • You can achieve great success with the free version only.
  • There are millions of active members so you won't run out of options while looking for BBW women.
  • You will get more matches and likes than on other dating sites.

Cons

  • Because of the huge user base, you'll face a lot of competition to grab attention.
