American plus-size model Tess Holliday was in Toronto on Wednesday, specifically at Union Station.

Holliday was joined by nine women, and together the group took off their shirts, and held signs to support body diversity.

The LA-based model shared her Toronto experience with her 1.4 million followers on Instagram, and over 1.6 million fans on Facebook.

“Today something amazing happened & I got to share it with these amazing women,” Holliday wrote in her social media posts. “Yes for body diversity. Yes to walking through Union Station in just your bra & jeans. Yes to us embracing our bodies at all stages.”

The event was part of a campaign organized by curvy clothing brand Penningtons, who shared the Union Station event live on their Facebook feed.
