Plus Model Tabria Majors is One of the Featured Models in Sports Illustrated!

No stranger to the plus size community and industry, Tabria Majors becomes the 2nd black plus size model featured in the swim edition of Sports Illustrated and we could not be more happier for her!

Sports Illustrated has just released their 2018 Swimsuit Edition and this year, not only was Hunter McGrady featured, but they also featured plus size model Tabria Majors! Plus size models are a new addition to the Sports Illustrated magazines thanks to Ashley Graham’s explosive debut in 2016. However, Tabria can also check off that she is one of the first plus size black models the magazine has featured!

On the heels of Precious Lee’s Lane Bryant Campaign in Sports Illustrated, Tabria wows in this milestone accomplishment for her career. This ladies, is the type of inclusivity and representation that we like to see! Beautiful women of all shades, shapes, and sizes being celebrated.

Who is Tabria?

Tabria is beautiful inside and out. I remember following her on Instagram via the Explore tab some time ago because I was so struck by her beauty.

The follow stuck when I realized she was also a champion of body positivity! Not only has she harnessed the power of vulnerability, but she is hella funny to boot!

This is a major feature for any model within the industry, but this accomplishment marks a major goal checked off early in Tabria’s modeling career!

“To think just a little over a year ago I was still working part-time as a maid, literally scrubbing floors after I completed photo shoots, constantly questioning if this “modeling thing” was going to work out,” the model wrote in her Instagram caption. “Suffice it to say, I think I’m doing pretty well :)”

Get it Tabria!

In the feature, Tabria is modeling swimsuits from Milk Baby Bikini, Born 4 Bikinis, Andi Bagus, and Luli Fama.

“I am incredibly grateful for this opportunity and want to remind everyone to always believe in yourself, trust the process, and never give up,” she added.  ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Now, if Tabria’s face looks familiar it’s because she is literally modeling at almost ALL of your favorite plus size fashion brands. From Fashion Nova, Forever 21, Hips & Curves, and so many more!
