Is Plus-Size Model Robyn Lawley Too Skinny?

In what world do we live in when we constantly try to bring each other down? Fans of plus-size model Robyn Lawley are criticizing the Aussie beauty after posting an Instagram image of herself looking rather trim. As a fellow curvy girl, I know how difficult it is for those of us who aren't a size four or smaller in a world full of beauties like Adriana Lima, Gisele Bundchen, and Candice Swanepoel. But thanks to Lawley and those before her like Crystal Renn, we were able to feel like big could be beautiful on the runway and advertisements.

Much like Lawley, Renn was heavily criticized when she decided to live a healthier life and shed pounds. I have always made my opinions known when discussing this topic since it's so close to my heart. Could these two women have fallen victim of an industry where the skinnier you are the more work, and in turn money, you make? Or could it be that they simply wanted to be more fit for themselves?

At the end of the day it doesn't matter because they've done great things for women, both curvy and otherwise, and what they do with their life is their choice. You don't have to support people if you feel they no longer represent whatever it is you admired about them. But what do you get by insulting them and calling them sell outs? They've already made waves and opened up the channels for future curvy/plus-size models of the future.

No matter what size, shape, color we are, we are all just human beings going through similar struggles. The fact that we're all different is what makes us special.

We're all beautiful!
