A lot of Plus Size models are making big moves this year, and we've broken another barrier with Shay Neary, the first Plus Size Trans model to land a campaign with retailer "Coverstory".
According to Yahoo: Heidi Kan, founder of the clothing retailer for full-figured women, was intent on featuring a trans model in the brand’s first-season campaign. “When Hari Nef signed with IMG and Caitlin Jenner graced the cover of Vanity Fair I knew it was time to promote and feature plus-size transmodels,” Kan said to Revelist.
Shay hasn't been modeling that long and almost didn't do it at all, "After much hesitation, and remembering how many of my friends telling me I should model... I took a chance, and applied, thinking they weren't going to be interested, because of my size," she told Revelist.
As PS Models continue to conquer new frontiers, I can't help but wonder: what's the next mold we break?
