It used to be Size and Height Matter in the runway until the discovery of plus size models who defied the odds and flaunted their curves. One of them is the gorgeous and beautiful Tessa Holliday who stands 5-foot-5 and a size 22. In a world where ladies get so obsessed in being skinny going through the extreme of eating cotton balls or starving themselves, trendy plus size clothing models like Tess are sending us girls some powerful message, “Dreams do Come True” and “Nothing is Impossible”.

The gorgeous plus size womens fashion model has a retroussé nose and pouty lips. Her auburn hair is as rich as it is wavy which makes her a real stunner.

Get a therapist, phone a psychic or eat a fuckin’ burger… grow up.”

Because of bullying, she was forced to drop out of school at 17. She still received hundreds of comments up to this point. She mused that people cannot accept that she is still happy despite her size.
While her father acknowledged her pretty face, she received some criticism due to her weight. Her father told her she couldn’t achieve anything because of her size. More so, she was told she couldn’t get a hot and a nice boyfriend, she must choose one. Proving that she can have both flourishing career and love life, Tess met her fiancé Nick online.
