Iskra thinks the label plus-size is too broad and it is condescending to women who are normal size. The fashion industry has long been known to have an unrealistic beauty standards. It’s those standards that led to Iskra being rejected my a modeling agent because her “hips were too big.”
✨???? what does confidence mean to you? I wanna know tell me below❗️???????? here’s what It means to me???????? Accepting who you are and realising you are perfectly imperfect. You are me at to be you, and you are a gift to this world. Knowing that perfect doesn’t exist so loving your so called “flaws”… your back rolls, ⚡️⚡️ & ???? strips because you are good enough???? #iskralawrence #everyBODYisbeautiful ???? @themagdalenaexperience for @simplybeuk
