2018 is definitely turning out to be a good year for plus size models and it makes me so happy! As a plus size girl that has been scrutinized her entire life for being bigger, I never thought in my wildest dreams I'd see an actual plus size model on the front of cosmo.
Our very own Tess Holliday made that fantasy a reality today when Cosmopolitan UK announced that she would be their featured cover for October that comes out on August 31st! The cover was met with mixed reactions. A lot of people praised Cosmo for Tess as their new cover and a lot of people shamed Tess and the magazine when the announcement came via Instagram!
Phew, I’m literally a COSMO GIRL!! Can’t believe I’m saying that! 😭😭 Thank you @cosmopolitanuk & @farrahstorr for this incredible opportunity 🙏🏻 If I saw a body like mine on this magazine when I was a young girl, it would have changed my life & hope this does that for some of y’all 💕 Issue hits stands 8/31! 🎉🎉🎉🎉 Photo by the incredible @wattsupphoto #effyourbeautystandards
