Tess Holiday too fat and too short to model, now she appears in Vogue magazine

January 25, 2015 10:29 pm

29 year old was bullied for years about her size. She was
told that she was too short and too fat to be a model but she’s now
managed to do something that took Kim years to achieve (with the help of
Kanye of course) and that’s land in . She also landed a
modeling contract.

The mother of one, who stands at 5 feet 5 inches, a size 22 and weighs
260, is the largest professional plus-size model in the business. In her
words:

“‘I feel like it’s breaking ground, this  is a milestone. I never could
have imagined that I could be here. It took a really long time to get
over things that had happened to me during the vital years of my life,’ she said.

Tess is now signed to MiLK Model Management after she was discovered on
instagram. She’s the first plus-size model of her size and height to be
signed to a modeling
agency.

As a teenager, Holiday endured years of bulling during her small town
upbringing in Laurel, and the abuse she suffered would continue through
to her adult life and career. Holiday has a nine-year-old son, a
husband, she works out with a trainer, and is now getting a steady
stream of work. She posted some of these pictures from Disney Land. No
matter how you look, there always a place where you are valued. Just
keep trying.
