Embrace your Curves ladies!!
I’ve selected 5 gorgeous plus-size models posing in Boudoir to show you how beautiful, sexy and confident they look.
1. Tess Holliday
Ryann Maegen Hoven (born July 5, 1985), known professionally as Tess Holliday and formerly known as Tess Munster, is an American plus-size model based in Los Angeles. Holliday is 5 feet 5 inches (165 cm) tall and claims to wear a US dress size 22 or 3x. She weighs 280 pounds (130 kg).
Holliday also self-describes as a "body positive activist". She embraces the word 'fat' and advocates that people should be able to eat as much and whatever they want without suffering from social ostracism. In 2013, she started her #effyourbeautystandards movement on Instagram. The movement shows women that they do not have to be a certain size to love their body (big or small) and that their size should not dictate their fashion choices. Her favorite part of her body is her buttocks.
2. Ashley Graham
Ashley Graham (born October 30, 1987) is an American model. She has appeared on the cover of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Glamour and Elle.
In 2017, Graham released a book, A New Model: What Confidence, Beauty, and Power Really Look Like. In this memoir, she provides insight into her experiences as a model and as an advocate for body positivity.
3. Jennifer Maitland
Jennifer was born and raised in Ft. Lauderdale. She graduated from Florida State University with a degree in Marketing. Her favorite hobbies are scuba diving, fishing, playing volleyball, horseback riding and shopping.
“My cousin was a model and she mentioned that I should try it. After College I began working with an agency in Miami and began a modeling career. Not too long after, I packed my bags and headed to NYC to see if it would work out and I've been here ever since. Keeping my curves in shape has been fairly easy for me. I've played sports my entire life which has helped, and I workout 3-5 days a week doing spinning and weight lifting.”
4. Tara Lynn
Tara Lynn (born July 26, 1982) is an American model from Washington. She is best known as a lingerie model for plus-size clothing.
When Lynn was the covergirl for Elle, the picture was accompanied by the tagline 'The Body' implying that hers is the shape women should aspire to - rather than a slim figure. In an interview she admitted to being bullied at as a teenager: 'I was a size 14/16 (UK size 18-20) in high school, and it wasn't the easiest thing. (...) As a 16, I definitely felt like my weight was holding me back. I was supposed to have these bones protruding from my body and clearly that's not the case, and not the way my body's meant to be.'
5. Candice Huffine
Candice Huffine (born October 15, 1984) is a plus size fashion model represented by IMG Models. A former teenage beauty queen, she signed her first modeling commercial contract in 2000 and has since crossed over from the commercial world into high fashion.
In 2016 Huffine founded Project Start, a collaborative initiative with Women's Running Magazine to encourage and inspire women to begin their running journey.
