On posting sexier photos on social media because she is more confident:

I’ve been working on myself for the past year, more so than I’ve ever worked on myself. I’ve surrendered to the process of just learning to love yourself and I think it shows through my pictures. I post more bathing suit pictures online. I want to show my fans that it’s possible that they can get to that self love too.

On being brave and posting a picture where she didn’t like the way her legs looked:

I’m a perfectionist. So I decided to post it anyways. I thought, ‘it’s me, it’s who I am and I love my body. So I’m just going to post it. I posted it because I look so happy.

On feeling sad for the haters:

I’ve taken away the power from the negative comments and the haters by not listening to them. If I do see [negativity], I just feel sorry for them because who leaves a negative comment on somebodies profile on the internet? You have to be kind of sad to do that so I’ve taken away the power and it feels great.

Nina Agdal: “Some days I’m a sample size, some days I’m a size 4, some a 6”

Untitled-3 - Nina Agdal: "Some days I’m a sample size, some days I’m a size 4, some a 6"

On being rejected for not being thin enough:

Today, I’m disappointed and appalled at the still very harsh reality of this industry. A few months ago, I agreed to shoot with a creative team I believed in and was excited to collaborate with.

When my agent received an unapologetic email concluding they would not run my cover/story because it “did not reflect well on my talent” and “did not fit their market,” the publisher claimed my look deviated from my portfolio and that I did not fit into the (sample size) samples, which is completely false. If anyone has any interest in me, they know I am not an average model body – I have an athletic build and healthy curves.
After a tough year of taking a step back from the insensitive and unrealistic pressures of this industry and dealing with paralyzing social anxiety, I walked into that shoot as a 25 year old WOMAN feeling more comfortable in my own skin and healthier than ever before. Some days I’m a sample size, some days I’m a size 4, some a 6. I am not built as a runway model and have never been stick thin. Now more than ever, I embrace my curves and work diligently in the gym to stay strong and most of all, sane.
I am proud to say that my body has evolved from when I started this crazy ride as a 16 year old GIRL with unhealthy and insufficient eating habits.

So, shame on you and thank you to the publisher for reaffirming how important it is to live your truth and say it out loud, no matter who you are or what size. I decided to release an image to draw awareness and support of an issue that’s bigger than just myself and affects so many people not just in the fashion industry, but in general, with the goal of bringing women from all over together in a celebration of our bodies. Let’s find ways to build each other up instead of constantly finding ways to tear each other down.
