The fashion industry is notoriously hard to break into especially if you do not fit the once strict ideals of perfection. However, over the years, we have seen a shift in the industry.


From only hearing about Ashley Graham when anyone mentioned plus-size models to now having a dedicated section of the industry celebrating women who have curvier bodies, fashion modeling has come a long way. Here are just five plus-size models who have become household names.

1. Ashley Graham


Ashley Graham has turned the modeling world on its head. She was the first plus-size model to feature on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit edition. She was also on the Forbes’ 2017 list of the World’s Highest Paid Models.

“Don’t fall into the trap of sacrificing your self-esteem for affection and acceptance. No matter what your size, you are a sexy goddess. Remember that.”
