We love watching what other plus size bloggers are doing around the world.

We are constantly amazed to see the empowering community within the curvy community. We are excited to show you one of our favourite curvy bloggers from the USA, Tess Holliday. Ryann Maegen Hoven, known professionally as Tess Holliday is a famous plus size blogger from the USA.

From a young age she was bullied but that never stopped her from embracing her own style and fashion sense. Not only this but it never took away from how much she loved the skin she was in. Constantly standing up and believing in herself.

Setting the standards for plus size modelling, Tess is constantly proving that you are only as good as you let yourself be. She shows everyone, both old and young, that loving yourself will lead to complete happiness. After growing up with tough childhood, she shows us that no matter what knocks you back, you can always get up and achieve your goals.

Missisippi born and L.A. bred, Tess has been modelling since 2010. She cut her teeth working for many indie designers and brands. She continues to work for some to show support for those who support her.

In early 2015 she broke boundaries when she was signed to Milk Management in the UK, making her the first model of her size to be signed to a major agency

She has appeared on the cover of People Magazine, LA Weekly, and been named one of the worlds top plus models by Vogue. She started the body positive movement in 2013, and continues to pursue this avenue to empower people from all walks of life to embrace the body they are in right now.

Size guide

All of our swimsuits are true to size. This means you should follow your normal sizing.

The best guide is your underwear - so what you would wear in a bra and undies is the size you order from us in tops and bottoms. For example, in you wear an 18E bra, you should order a size 18 swimsuit top from us.

If you are looking for a one piece and are in between sizes, say an 18E bra and a 20 in underpants, we recommend choosing the larger of the two sizes - so a size 20 in this case.

If you have any issues with your new swimsuit, we do 30 day refunds for full priced items and exchanges for all items - so you can swap to a size or style that is more suitable for you!
