Tess Holliday has taken the fashion world by storm by showing us that women can be gorgeous at any size, from a size two to, in her case, a size 22. In a recent Instagram post, Holliday called out the vast inconsistencies in clothing sizes for plus-sized women like herself.

Holliday rose to prominence on Instagram with her signature hashtag #effyourbeautystandards. The hashtag has nearly 850,000 entries on Instagram, with women sharing photos that show confidence is really the key to true beauty.
