Victoria’s Secret’s most iconic model reveals how she hid weight gain from the company – Yahoo Finance

The beautiful Tyra Banks was the curviest of the Victoria Secret angels and is also never one to hide her truth. The timing of this story seems perfect since the launch of the new Lane Bryant #Plusisequal campaign has gained so much success.

When I would gain weight and I had a big Victoria’s Secret shoot, say they wanted me to shoot the cover of the swimsuit issue, I would just make my hair bigger to make my booty look smaller,” – Tyra Banks (according to an interview with People Magazine)

Curvy Swaggerette: Tess Holliday, Curvy Supermodel


The model on the cover of the June 2015 issue of People magazine may have been bullied at one time but she’s enjoying some serious redemption with a successful modeling career. Tess Holliday (aka Tess Munster), supermodel is the creator of the “EFF Your Beauty Standards” movement and building a major curvy brand.

“Tess is a Plus-Size Model, Make Up Artist, Body Positive Activist and Blogger based in L.A., who turned her hobbies into a successful career. She says she is now doing what she always dreamed of.

Tess was born in a small town in Mississippi, July 1985. She always longed for a life bigger than what her small town could offer. She had always been different than other girls growing up; Tess was teased for being curvy, fair skinned, and short. The bullies at school were relentless, but she kept her head up. Knowing that she’d never quite fit in never kept Tess from dreaming.” – excerpt from

It takes a lot of courage and confidence to pull off a career like hers. Being featured on a mainstream magazine like People is pretty impressive. I’m sure it will not be long before controversy will follow. At size 22 there will be many that have much to say but for now I’m celebrating a curvy woman with the title “Supermodel” beside her name.
