On getting her body back after giving birth to her first child a year ago:
My body isn’t the same and while some people are like “oh no it is” it really is quite different…it’s a body I am getting used to in terms of modelling. I’m not Miranda Kerr unfortunately. So my body still needs some help and I just need to work out for a few more months.
… says Robyn.

On the biggest misconception about plus-size models:
“I guess it would be that we are overweight, which just isn’t true. Most curve models I know are so fit and healthy but we are also really tall so it’s impossible to be a smaller size.”
… says mom-of-one Robyn (who is 6’0” and a US size 12), while looking quite Taylor Swifty on th Maxim cover.
On her body after giving birth to her first child 6 months ago:
The quest to be perfect is always immense and it’s always out there. I tried to distance myself from carrying to much about it because it’s a losing battle. I’ve got a few new marks, which I’m waiting to fade. A lot of models get back into swimwear three months after giving birth. That’s not me!
… says Robyn in Who Magazine’s The Body Issue.

Robyn Lawley, first ‘plus-size’ model that appeared in Sports Illustrated, on accepting her body:
My agent Chelsea Bonner was the only agent to put me on contract upon meeting me 6 years ago. When she met me, the first thing she told me after years of having to diet too extremes, having to go to castings and not fit a thing to being embarrassingly sent home constantly, and hating my naturally sized Aus 14-16 body “You don’t need to lose any weight, you just need to be you, you’re perfect just as you are”
You have no idea how happy and amazing that was to hear as a teenage girl. ACCEPTANCE. She promised me work and travel and for the first time in years I believed it. I know people can get outraged at times that my body constantly gets referred to as plus size but I think you should check out what she’s written @bellamodelmanagement It’s time we started to embrace #sizediversity EVERYWHERE
I will tell you a secret, the first time you give up diets, or terrible fat free, sugar free toxic whatever foods and embrace real food the happier you will ever be. I will NEVER diet again and I made that pact to myself 6years ago #loveyournaturalsize #changeiscoming #realfoodftw #robynlawleyeats
