Has plus-size model Robyn Lawley fallen victim to the fashion industry’s high standards of what a model is supposed to look like?
The 24-year-old, who built her career on having a fuller figure, sparked controversy today when she Instagrammed a bodfie (selfie + body), which showed off her slimmed-down frame.
“The best kind of exercise? The one when you jump and dance around like there’s no tomorrow to awesome music!!” she captioned the image.
