Recently, she accused Victoria's Secret for encouraging only size zero.
She is a 30-year-old Los Angeles based American plus size model and calls herself "body positive activist".
She has slammed Victoria's Secret as they don't manufacture plus size lingerie. They glorify zero figures and have raised the beauty standards in America significantly. They praise beauty which only comes in small sizes.
She is proud of being fat. She thinks that no one is born fat or wakes up fat, but one should be content with his or her body style. She basically thinks that if you are fat, there is nothing to be ashamed of.
She thinks that diets don't work. She claims to not have followed any diet plans or workout plans her whole life. She urges everyone to be proud of their body shapes. She does not want to change her body shape or size and feels that she is perfect in her own ways.
She even speaks about her idol. She believes that her idol is Miss Piggy as she was one of the first plus-size models in the industry. She likes her because she enjoyed her body shape. She wore the best of brands in the best possible ways.
Tess wants to start her own plus-size clothing range. She wants all the women of her size to never feel ashamed and bored of a particular set of clothes. She will make her clothing range different from all the other boring stuff already in the market and the best thing about it would be that it would come in all sizes!
She has posted various pictures of herself in lingerie and showed everyone that only zero-size models don't look sexy in lingerie. She believes that if the high-end brand starts selling plus-size stuff, it would definitely be a huge step towards achieving her goal of making every size the same.
