Congrats to Tess! And it's about damn time the fashion industry woke up.

Her Name Is Tess Munster And You Should Know Who She Is, Even If You Don't Give A Whit About Fashion

Tess Munster has been modeling for years. But it's her work on #EffYourBeautyStandards that really got her noticed. She got sick of people telling her she wasn't beautiful enough to wear bikinis or lingerie, so she took a bunch of pictures of herself wearing exactly that. They. Went. Viral.

Then:



This is a BIG DEAL (pun intended) because MiLK Management is no slouch in the fashion world. By signing Tess Munster, they made her the very first size-22 professional model.

But that's nothing compared to the effect it's having on real people all over.

Here are three reasons why Tess Munster's contract is a big deal:

It's giving people the courage to take risks they'd never taken before.



It's reminding people that it's just fine to love yourself the way you are.




People are standing up for everybody's right to feel beautiful.
