Tess Holliday has beaten critics and made the cover of fashion magazine Cosmopolitan - and the result is peak body positivity.
The plus-size model, who is often the target of horrible comments online and who subsequently started the #effyourbeautystandards campaign, shared the cover of the magazine with her 1.6million Instagram followers.
Thank you @cosmopolitanuk & @farrahstorr for this incredible opportunity 🙏🏻 If I saw a body like mine on this magazine when I was a young girl, it would have changed my life & hope this does that for some of y’all
People are celebrating her cover as a step in right direction for women's magazines diversifying the meaning of beauty.
You give me confidence I always felt like I was never pretty because of my size but I'm slowly starting to accept the size I am an love myself for it. Thankyoy [sic]
"Not only the cover," another added, "but in a bathing suit too! This cover is going to be a game changer for so many girls and young women!"
Holliday’s Twitter is blowing up as well, and people are praising her for being an 'inspiration'.
