World's First Size 22 Supermodel Lands Major Magazine Cover

May 21, 2015 2 min read

Tess Holliday has just hit a major career break through. She will be on the cover of People magazine's body issue. peoplecover   The 5'5", 280 pound dynamo has become a social media sensation with awesome tattoos and her sexy lingerie clad selfies.  Now with over 800,000 likes on Facebook and 700,000 followers on Instagram, she's started a hashtag, #effyourbeautystandards, to spread her message of self-acceptance. tess2   Holliday says that she is in the modelling industry to inspire others to love themselves as well. "The whole reason I do this is to show women that you can be beautiful regardless of your size," she told People. "You are allowed to dress how you want without feeling ashamed of your body." This 29 year old from Laurel, Mississippi, wasn't always so confident. When she was 9, her mother was killed by a gun shot wound to the head during a domestic violence incident. tes3 "That time's a blur; I chose eating to cope," she admitted. The teasing and bullying became worse as she gained more weight. "I was a size 12 when I was 12," she said to People. "I was shoved into lockers, getting death threats at my house — it was awful." tess4   Holliday attended plus size model castings where she found she was shunned for not fitting into the standard definition of beauty. "They said, 'You have a pretty face, but you're too short and you're too big,'" she recalled of a casting she attended at age 15. Things started to take off when, at 24, Holliday was the star of A&E's Heavy. She found a legion of fans and hasn't looked back. After all this ground breaking, barrier shattering work, what is left for Holliday? Being a positive role model for her 10 year old son, Rylee. "I just want my son to grow up loving himself without any restrictions," she said. We should be that lucky, to love ourselves without any restrictions. Time to hear from you. More forward momentum for the body positive movement or more glorification of obesity?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.
