Paraiso Miami Beach Swim Week is back for the summer 2023 season, and although brands haven't always been inclusive regarding body types, quite a few have showcased some sexy and trendy styles this year.
To help with that is model Tabria Majors. In a short, seven-year span, the Nashville native has worked on campaigns with brands such as Savage X Fenty, Skims, Boohoo, and Fashion Nova. This year, Majors designed a collection in partnership with Cupshe, which debuted on the runway. The collection marks the brand's first-ever plus-size collaboration and includes an assortment of styles that harken back to the neon-filled beach hangouts of the '80s and '90s.
"My swim collection with Cupshe is inspired by LA living and my personal style. I wanted to incorporate bright colors, bold patterns, and stylish silhouettes. Typically, swimwear for extends sizes tends to lean to more conservative patterns and styles, but I strive to prove more contemporary pieces for those who want something different," says Majors.
Majors is not only a model but a body-positive advocate. For her, it seems like the right thing to do.
"I feel like at the time when I was modeling, [being body-positive] just came with being a plus-size model," she notes. "I feel like you couldn't be a plus-size persona and not be an advocate for body positivity. It wouldn't make any sense not to do that. I definitely embraced it and still do. I feel like it got co-opted by a lot of other people, so it's not what it is today. I'm still here for it, though."
