Tess Holliday:”I don’t want to be called “curvy sexy-licious,” that’s ridiculous”

4696410A00000578-5105441-image-m-57_1511305291254 - Tess Holliday:"I don't want to be called "curvy sexy-licious," that's ridiculous"

On how she doesn’t like the fact that certain plus-size models don’t want to be called ‘plus-size’:

“If someone googles “model” they’re going to see Bella Hadid, or Gigi. If they google “plus-size model” they’re going to see me. I think it’s incredibly frustrating that all these women capitalize off a marginalized group and when they become famous they are too good for it. One of them was just in a Lane Bryant campaign.” (seemingly referring to Ashley Graham).

“How can you build your career from taking money from plus-size women and then turn around and say the term’s not good enough for you? I don’t want to be called “curvy sexy-licious,” that’s ridiculous. It’s insulting! We can’t even be who we are. I get the whole “not being into labels,” but it’s for a plus-size woman being like “I’m plus-size, she’s plus-size, I’m fat, she’s fat.” It’s not a hate-term, it’s how I describe my body.”

… says 32 year-old Tess.

On being criticized:

Haters will say it’s photoshopped. Some will tell me to cover up. Others will say I’m promoting obesity. Whatever they say, I will still get up in the morning with my head held high, wrapped in the arms of a man who loves me and my fat body and to my kids smiling when they wake up and see their mom… So really, I will stay winning.

l - Tess Holliday: "Fat people have sex. A lot of it"

On how being overweight never stopped her from enjoying sex:

Shot some #polaroids with @anastasiagphoto in NYC last week💋 When I saw them, & how hot (& obviously unretouched) they are, I was reminded of a ‘Tess Holliday’s Advice for Life’ that are all throughout my book. It goes: “Fat people have sex. A lot of it. And it’s really f~~~~~~ good.” That’s all 💁🏻💅🏻✌🏻 #effyourbeautystandards #notsosubtletess #thenotsosubtleartofbeingafatgirl

On releasing her new book called ‘The Not So Subtle Art of Being A Fat Girl’:

I’m so happy to finally share my book cover with you‼️💕📚🎉 ‘The Not So Subtle Art of Being A Fat Girl’ is available now for presale (link is in my bio) & I will soon be announcing dates for the US & UK book tour (+possibly more)! It literally took a team around the world 🌎 to make this happen, & I’m so grateful! 😭 Writing a book right after having a newborn baby was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done, but I did it because I think it’s important to show the world that it’s okay to be a visibly FAT plus woman/wife/mom/model & THIS lady has a story to tell! 🍾🎉 To my fans, THANK YOU and this book is FOR YOU!

On being real:

@makeupbyjmonroy captured this BTS from my cover shoot yesterday & it’s totally unretouched & I’m sitting in a way that isn’t “flattering” but that’s why I love it. It’s real. My gorgeous, supportive husband (who has held my hand the entire time through this book) is laughing behind me & I’m just hanging out in shapewear takin a 🤳🏻Wearing makeup doesn’t make me less of a feminist, & neither does wearing shapewear. It’s all about our choice to wear & do what we want with our bodies. I will keep resisting, with perfect coiffed hair from @hisvintagetouch too ✌🏻#effyourbeautystandards #NotSoSubtleTess
