Tara Lynn Facts
- Unlike many other plus-size models, she understands why fashion designers go for regular skinny girls. She has confessed that it is indeed difficult to make clothes look great on big women.
- Tara has taken training in classical singing and retains a keen interest in works of 19th-century French composers such as Debussy and Fauré.
- She takes private vocal lessons in her free time. However, a career in singing is not on cards yet.
- In her free time, she likes to read, write and paint. She also likes to see opera in her leisure time.
- She studied jazz music while in college. She also performed in the vocal jazz choirs at Bellevue College and Pierce College.
- Tara got into modeling to help pay her tuition fees while studying at university. She had realized that she couldn’t do conventional work while studying and modeling would give her more freedom.
- Before she took up modeling, she had a job at a bank. But that job made it difficult for her to focus on her studies.
- For the initial couple of years of her modeling career, she worked solely in the Seattle area and didn’t have any New York representation. So, after completing her university studies, she moved to New York City to expand her career.
- She got her big breakthrough after she was photographed by Sølve Sundsbø for the V Magazine “Curves Ahead” editorial feature.
- When it comes to the plus size tag, she has a different view than many of her plus size colleagues as she doesn’t have any issue with the term as humans come in every size and it is only wise to place half the size in one category and half of the sizes in another.
- For her holidays, she likes to go out to destinations known for hiking trails.
- She has been featured in many magazines and editorials like Elle Spain, Harper’s Bazaar Spain, and Cosmopolitan USA.
- She was bullied in school due to her size. In an interview, she said, “I was a size 14/16 (UK size 18-20) in high school, and it wasn’t the easiest thing. (…) As a 16, I definitely felt like my weight was holding me back. I was supposed to have these bones protruding from my body and clearly that’s not the case, and not the way my body’s meant to be.”
- Once, she spent an entire year barefoot. She also likes to use a cycle to get around.
