January 26, 2015 2 min read

Tess Holliday is making history by becoming the largest plus-size model to be signed by a mainstream modelling agency. Tess2 At 5 feet 5 inches and a size 22, Tess is thrilled to be officially signed to MiLK Model Management -- and so is the agency's owner, Anna Shillingslaw. "She's such an important role model for so many women," Anna tells the NY Daily News. "I think we're the only agency with a model of her size. She is by far the largest model I have in the Curves division." Tess started on Instagram by establishing herself as an advocate for body-positivity. She started the #effyourbeautystandards campaign and regularly flaunts her body in front of 300,000 plus followers. "It's okay to be yourself, even if you happen to exist in a fat body." Tess Instagram is also where she was discovered by MiLK Model Management. Tess has now modeled for countless fashion lines and has even been featured in Vogue Italia. [bctt tweet="First Size 22 Model Signed To Major Modelling Agency"] She is well aware of the critics out there, stating that despite what people may think, she works out on a regular basis, taking part in various physical activities, including hiking and swimming. She also has her own personal trainer. Tess4 "I see a lot of negative comments as well, and I ignore those. I know she's healthy and active," says Anna. "We're all built differently. She goes hiking, she's in love, she has a son, she has a gorgeous husband. Maybe people can lose weight if they walked more and ate less, but it's so easy to say that. Everyone has their things in life." Tell us what you think about Tess's modeling achievement and the body-positive movement in the comments below!
