17 Plus-Size Models Confess Their True Thoughts Toward The Industry

"I'm a plus-size model. Secretly, I hate the industry. But someone has to show that it's OK to have curves."

Plus-size models have been making headlines more than ever in the past year as more and more brands aim to promote diversity and inclusivity. Models such as Ashley Graham and Iskra Lawrence have become household names and other plus-size models have graced the pages of magazines and walked NYFW runways. But, what do these models really think about the industry? 

Several used the Whisper app to anonymously confess their thoughts and feelings towards modeling. Their confessions reveal how empowering modeling can be as well, as shed light on some of the struggles they face. We hope sharing these confessions will help to continue the conversation about more inclusive opportunities for women and men in the modeling, advertising, and entertainment world.
