Tess Munster “Munster Inc.”

Tess-Munster-for-SwakDesignBy Leah Vernon

I first laid eyes on this vivacious model on a blog on She had on a two-piece bathing suit; her hair and make-up was done flawlessly as she peered over her shoulder, slightly pouting for the camera by the pool. I saw her a few weeks later on I think she may have been in lingerie that time. Today, I read an article from entitled, Best Plus-Sized Models: Who Is Dominating The Industry Right Now. I wanted to know more.

I read down the list and at #8, Tess Munster was there holding rank. At first glance, Tess reminded me of a mix between Sara Rue and Katy Perry with a pinch of tats and a scoop of huge boobs. The structure of her face is amazing, vibrant. And I must say that I hate her for not having a double-chin. Her style is impeccable and her confidence is even more alluring. She looks like the kind of gal that can go out and just have fun.

Tess does everything. She blogs. She models. She does make-up. She’s an activist. And she may even be on a little screen near you, a reality show called “The Big Girl’s Club” which she explained during an interview with Plus Model Magazine. In the interview, she explained the hardships of being in the public eye and being plus-size. Not only are plus-size women in the media criticized by some straight sized audiences but by some of the plus-sized audiences as well: ” I got a lot of really hurtful things said to me by some Torrid fans because they didn’t think I was big enough to be a Torrid model. I remember thinking, “I’m an 18/20 and I don’t necessarily want to be!” [laughs] They would want to see their sizes of 26/28 and I told them that Torrid does pick real women.”

Can’t we all just get along? Gosh. This may be off topic but everyone needs to practice acceptance. Everything in the world does not fit into a certain mold. Plus-size can be any size that is curvy, voluptuous, thick, or whatever. All love here. But Tess is strong and perseveres in her quest to be all she can be…the fabulous woman she is.

Let’s hope she goes far in her endeavors.

Here are a few pics that I really enjoyed:

I am my own worst critic. There’s many things that I loved that I stopped doing because I “wasn’t good enough”. Because what I looked like was “disgusting”. The things I wrote about would “disgrace” my family, my religion, myself. For five years, I didn’t do anything. And, resented the fact that I wasn’t living in my purpose. I was floating along life, mimicking what I thought people like me did. They didn’t model. They didn’t cuss. They made their husbands happy. They stayed out of the way. But, most of them were doormats. I chose to put it all out there. On the internets and become myself 😂🤣 There will always be critics. People who don’t read nothin you say or have no idea what you stand for but will look at your body and judge you based on that and that alone. The person in the next slide (swipe over) keeps referring to my body as “that” which means they don’t see my fat glory as human. He/she calls me disgusting. Calls me a disgrace. But, their profile pic says “Inspiration”. My body is my temple. I am a queen. I appreciate what my body does for me despite my size. Period! 👏🏾 And, a reminder for you if you are struggling with body hate—from yourself or others or society—your body is a grand temple. Adorn it. Hug it. Nourish it. In what ways do you overly criticized your self, your body? What advice would you give someone who is critical of their self? Let’s chat.
