Tabria Majors recently made history when she became the first plus sized black model featured in Sports Illustrated. A year ago, the voluptuous swimsuit model was scrubbing floors as a part-time maid. But all that has changed for the 27 year old natural beauty who was born in Nashville, TN. Now, instead of scrubbing floors, she is known for showcasing her curves on the red carpet at the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue party last week in New York.
According to Daily Mail, Tabria – who now has 698k social media followers – was selected to model for the magazine from an Instagram submission she made just nine months ago, under the hashtag ‘#SISwimSearch’.
During the Swim Week show in Miami, Tabria drove the crowd wild and impressed Sports Illustrated with her passion for body diversity and universal beauty.
