Plus-size model’s magazine cover prompts debate

Drive 21/09/2018

While plus-size model Tess Holliday's appearance on Cosmopolitan UK has been applauded for its body-positivity, others are not so pleased.

The model shared her October cover with her social media followers.

"If I saw a body like mine on this magazine when I was a young girl, it would have changed my life and hope this does that for some of y'all,” she said.

But critics argued that the cover "promotes obesity" just like skinny models have been slammed for promoting disordered eating.
