10 Hottest Plus-Size Models And Influencers
Does a model need to be slim? If you search this question on Google, the largest search engine will fill your display with several plus-size models. Yes, most models are indeed slim and they maintain their figure but it doesn’t mean that plus-size women can’t become modes.
Let’s not exaggerate the topic and see the profile of some hot plus-size models….
- Barbie Ferriera
If you have seen Ford Models, you can recall this name. Ford signed this plus-size model when she was just 14. But it was just a start of a great modeling career for this sweet-fourteen model. Later she got extensive media coverage through leading fashion magazines including Vogue, Teen Vogue, and Elle. These magazines covered her success story and soon she became a household name. Brands also started running after her to take advantage of her popularity. She did many shoots for brands like Ralph Lauren.
- Kate Wasley
The next on my list is Kate Wasley who’s an Australian body-positive activist turned plus-size model due to her curvy body. She’s also a social media influencer with a huge following. But what I want to highlight more is the coveted spot in the 2018 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue. And it became the beginning of a great modeling career. I don’t know how you will react on seeing a plus-size woman in a swimsuit but Kate Wasley took it positively and co-founded Any Body Co, an initiative supporting body positivity.
- Tara Lynn
Tara Lynn could be a role model for many plus-size women trying to get a foothold in the highly competitive modeling industry. She’s a plus-size model from America and she takes her body size very positively. It can be argued that she could be under influence of a body-positive activist but it hardly matters. She started her modeling career in 2006 when she was in her early twenties and continued to grace leading fashion magazines with her beauty and look.
- Tess Holiday
Tess Holiday is a surprise for many because there was a time when she was found to be too short and too big to fit into the attires of a model. But she proved all those predictions wrong with her confidence. She stands only 5 feet and 3 inches tall. When she appeared to become a model at the age of 15, the selectors simply rejected her profile. In 2013, she started a social media movement to protest against the world’s beauty standards and became a celebrity. Today she aims to champion body positivity through her social movement.
- Paloma Elsesser
Paloma Elsesser is a plus-size model who had the opportunity to walk the ramp for some top designers. She had dreamt of becoming a model since her childhood but she was continuously told she couldn’t become a model due to her curvy body. And I must say that it is a trauma for a child. Like every other child, Paloma Elsesser also had a dream and there’s nothing wrong with this. After her graduation, she moved to Paris where she was cast in the Marc Jacobs show. And that proved a turning point in her life.
- Brielle Anyea
It would be an injustice to call Brielle Anyea an aspiring model because she has already a popular name in the modeling industry. She hit the limelight after getting featured in the 2019 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Search Finalist. She was among the top 67 finalists and it was a proud moment for her. Today she is a successful model, social media influencer, and a leading body-positive activist. As a model, she has worked for top labels including ASOS, Nelly, Nike, Kohl’s, and many more. She even launched her swimwear line in sizes XS-X4 and makes deliveries across the globe.
- Nadia Aboulhosn
Nadia Aboulhosn is better known as a fashion blogger and designer. She’s also a plus-size model but she’s more popular for her views on fashion. As a model, she has worked for leading brands including Torrid and Lane Bryant. Since she’s a fashion designer by heart, she moved on to launch her clothing brand. In 2017, she co-founded a plush-size clothing brand Eloquii. Her sister Hayley Aboulhosn became her co-founder. Aboulhosn also has a YouTube channel that gives tips on beauty, fashion, and lifestyle topics. And she enjoys a huge following on YouTube.
- Felicity Hayward
Felicity Hayward is a British model, but I will like to call her an accidental model because her introduction to modeling was a pure coincidence. She was spotted partying and dancing in an East London Pub. Soon she was offered to become a model for celebrity photographer Miles Aldrige. She agreed to the shoot that was published in Ponystep Magazine in 2012. From here started her modeling career and she made it bigger with her positive attitude and a strong determination to take challenges.
- Jessica Leahy
Jessica Leahy is an Australian model and one of the few plus-size women signed by IMG. Her modeling career formally started in 2008 when her face was chosen to grace the cover page of “M” magazine and two years later she was published on the cover page of “V” magazine. She is a plus-size model but her size is her strength instead of her weakness. Today she is a successful model and has worked for leading international brands including American lingerie brand Maidenform, German sportswear brand Puma, and Italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana.
- Tabria Majors
Tabria Majors isn’t only a plus-size model but a social media personality as well. Her modeling journey is also co-incidental. She got her modeling assignment in 2013 when she was working in a clothing store in Tennessee. She was discovered and she accepted the offer. Since then she has been featured in advertisements like Macy’s, Desigual, and Lane Bryant. She’s doing well in the highly competitive field of modeling despite being a plus-size model. And the audiences weren’t surprised to see her walking at New York Fashion Week in February 2017 at Bryant Park.
