Major news from the plus-size modeling community today: Plus-size model Tess Munster just became the first model of her size (size 22) and height to be signed to a major modeling agency. MiLK Management signed Munster to its Curve division, which exclusively represents plus-size models.
Munster shared the news via her Facebook page, saying, "I can finally share my big news!!! I'm now represented by MiLK Management in London. I'm the first plus size model EVER (I die) my size & height to be signed to a major agency!"
While Curve has long represented plus-size models, most of them fall between a size 8 and 16. With the fashion world's ongoing battle to feature ladies of different sizes, we consider this a significant step in the right direction.
