Agency: Natural Models
Claim to Fame: After becoming a finalist in their “Swim Search” competition, Majors traveled to the island of Belize to pose for the legendary Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue clad only in palm leaves and confidence. She shared in a behind the scenes video for the brand that even though she was “in the water about to pose,” she still couldn’t believe that she had been chosen.
If you’re searching for physical evidence that one can be happy and healthy at any size you need look no further than Tabria Majors. Instead of resembling a rigid washboard the model’s taut stomach muscles settle into her midsection to perfectly compliment her soft curves instead of eradicating them.
Majors casually breaks necks on sets and on social media in swimsuit pieces featuring narrow strings and strategic cut outs that actively disprove the misguided belief held by some retailers that plus-women and the models meant to represent them exclusively belong in high waisted swimwear.
To think just a little over a year ago I was still working part-time as a maid, literally scrubbing floors after I completed photo shoots, constantly questioning if this “modeling thing” was going to work out. Suffice it to say, I think I’m doing pretty well :) I cannot believe that I get to be apart of this great legacy that is @si_swimsuit! Thank you @mj_day and the SI team for taking risks and being a champion for diversity. I am incredibly grateful for this opportunity and want to remind everyone to always believe in yourself, trust the process, and never give up. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷 @yutsai88 MUA @paulyblanch Hair @djquintero Suits are tagged
But just because you’re drop dead gorgeous with a ridiculous body doesn’t mean you’re always blessed with the ability to stay f*ck boy free. Majors and her friend writer Mindy J. recount their plus-size dating misadventures in “The Thick Podcast” which they describe as “weekly conversations about love life and lipo but mostly love.”
The show is a hilarious corner of the internet where chivalry is, in fact, dead and curves aren’t a trend that can be ushered in and out by reports on Page Six.
Instead of nipping and tucking her face and body into socially acceptable standards with apps like facetune Majors chooses to stand out on Instagram by using the platform to promote body positivity.
I got to be in @si_swimsuit this year, and if you want to see me in next year’s issue click the link in my bio and vote! You can vote as many times as you like through March 2nd. Thank you guys so much for your continued support! 😊 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷 @yutsai88 MUA @paulyblanch Hair @djquintero 👙 @andi_bagus
She faced the issue head on writing in one of her captions “maybe I’ll be a Victoria’s Secret angel for Halloween since it ain’t happening in real life.”
Maybe I’ll be a Victoria’s Secret Angel this year for Halloween, since it ain’t happening in real life lol. Just paying homage to a few of my favorite pics/outfits from VS here and showing that curvy girls can rock (and sell) lingerie just as well as straight size models. _____________________________________ 📸 @allgoodthingstv 👚 @victoriassecret
Angel or not she’s worth some major attention.
