Maria Gimena is the 2017 Face of Torrid

Maria Gimena Wins Torrid Model Competition

Maria Gimena

 

Plus model Maria Gimena was selected from the four finalists as the competition winner and was named the Face of Torrid for 2017.  Maria wins a modeling contract and a wonderful wardrobe from Torrid as well. This curvy beauty is 24 years old and was born in Uruguay. She is now a New Jersey resident. She is also multi-lingual(Spanish, Italian, and English) and quite the stunner.

Like many young women, Maria experienced criticism from some of her peers about her appearance and size but eventually overcame those experiences. Now she is very confident in herself and her looks; and very justifiably so.  Looking forward to seeing more of Maria in the coming year.

The competition strives to celebrate healthy curves, a positive body image and diversity.  Curvy Kate Marketing Manager, Hannah Houston, stated, “We truly believe that our customers should model our lingerie as these are the girls who will be buying it. Our model search isn’t just a one off – it’s here to stay to prove how gorgeous the shapely figure looks in lingerie – wobbles, bumps and all. If you can wear Curvy Kate lingerie – you’re in.”

“We have found a great mix of models since our launch in 2009. From E to J cups and from size 10 to 18 girls – each and every one brings their own personality to our brand and we’re really looking forward to meeting the US winner.”

After 5 successful competitions in the UK and Australia, by the award-winning, Curvy Kate, women in America now have their opportunity to compete for some fabulous prizes and recognition.
