Robyn Lawley: “I can’t be skinny, that’s just my bone structure”

lawleyparis2 - Robyn Lawley: "I can’t be skinny, that’s just my bone structure"

On how women shouldn’t try to change their natural shape:

Don’t try and force yourself down — I can’t be skinny, that’s just my bone structure. Even at my absolute skinniest, I wasn’t skinny enough to model. It was a really traumatic experience, I was 16 … to hate your body so much, to hold it responsible for not working and for holding your life back. It was a huge turnaround when I started plus-size modeling. I gave up and stopped caring. I fell in love with food again, I started a food blog and dedicated my life to just loving food.

… says Robyn.

“dedicate my life to just loving food” ?? I would never wish to reach some goal like this,sounds like addiction and empty life. she doesn’t respond to her own statement though,because she is slim and her body is far from the one of someone who eats like eating is the best thing.

Erica

People can dedicate their lives to loving food and not be obese gluttons! Look at all the chefs and food writers out there who make food their life’s work – they’re not all fat! Although I think her choice of words is a bit over the top, I don’t think her life is empty or she’s addicted to food.

yes you know..or you make a carreer out of it or you remain with nothing as I said. despite the fact that I can remember a bunch of obese very famous chefs(not all,not nobody of them), if you make a carrer about cooking you are also dedicating to making money out of that. I heard people willing to be able to cook like a pro, studying, even teaching in high-cusine classes! that don’t like to eat. one of them after making such plates and table for guests, told me “oh I don’t eat cause I don’t like food(food in general… Read more »

I think you’re looking into this quote way too much, she’s just saying she’s enjoying food and its a hobby for her. Its a hobby for a lot of people, a lot of thin people. Its quite a common hobby, it only gets dangerous in excess and Robyn doesnt look like she’s stuffing her face with lasagna all day.

If Precious or Christina Hendricks had said this id be a little more concerned, but Robyns healthy and not annoying like Jennifer Lawernce.

you are right, but dedicate her life is what she said. I think too that a written quote may not correspond to her actual thinking since she just spoke a thing quickly. I appreciate your comment and let me just annoy people again with my thought: as you say better than my own words, her quote if really meant, gets Dangerous. It’s like claiming anorexia: not all the people who love activity or eat little or to stay slim are anorexic, but still I don’t think everybody will be ok with someone telling she is dedicating life to just love… Read more »

Um, but this woman IS overweight, and maybe obese. Obese is 30 percent body fat, and she looks close to it.

You think she looks obese/close to obese?! Wow – that’s amazing to me. According to the charts I have found online, obese body fat % seems start from 30%+ to 39%+ depending on the website. Most put it beginning at 32%. Robyn looks perfectly ‘normal’ for her height to me – probably around 25-28% body fat. She’s obviously not lean, but she’s not really fat either. If she’s outside the ideal weight range for her height at all, it wouldn’t be by much. She is 6’2″! Even at 190lbs, she wouldn’t be truly overweight. I think we’re so used to… Read more »

25% is overweight. Watch “Super Slim Me” I think it is……..Dawn Porter has the same ‘reaction’ you did. An MD tells her she is obese (30% fat) and she gets hysterical. She looks the same bodyfat percentage as Robyn here. No one is saying she is rolly polly. But the eyes can SEE fat, no matter what shape or size a person may be.

Let’s be clear, bodyfat% NOT weight determines whether someone isobese or overrweight, and Robyn is def. overweight, she looks 27prct. to me. Iam agreeing with you by the way.

Also, I just did a home tape measure body fat % test (supposedly pretty accurate) and it came out at 26%. If you saw me, you would not believe that is right as I look fatter than Robyn!

To quote my favorite character of all time, “I hate everybody.”

Also, I am never visiting this website again. You people can sit here and discuss how models are fat all you want, but I just realized I’d rather continue staring at the air.

And no, I’m not fat, I’m a average-thin person.

Savoring and enjoying food is not the same as hoarding food.

I can enjoy a nice piece of steak, or a good salad, or creme brulee.

Does not mean that I am going to eat 10 plates of it.

It could also be that she is referring to cooking and enjoying the ART of food. Aspiring to get better at an art is a fairly common and valid goal for many people, and I say that as someone who isn’t even artistically inclined.

Erica

Her weight looks absolutely healthy and normal for her frame here – I can’t imagine her as thin as Karlie Kloss, for instance, they’re of similar stature, but Karlie’s bone structure is much smaller overall.
The only thing I have never liked about Robin is how small her head looks in relation to her body – nitpicking, but it does stand out to me, for some reason! She’s striking though and I think she sounds moderate and intelligent from the quotes I’ve read.

No, she is medically overweight and eats everything and says before she does not exercise. Fat women will do anything to rationalize being fat.

Erica
Guest

Why do you say she is ‘medically overweight’? Do you know her health stats – or even her BMI (which hardly anyone pays much attention to anymore)?

Your comment is pretty offensive. Plenty of fat people (and I don’t count Robyn among the fat, personally) don’t rationalise their weight at all – many are trying to improve themselves. And from what I’ve read, Robyn does say that she exercises. Believe it or not, you can be heavy and get plenty of exercise – there are even obese people who are into sports and keep pretty fit!

MH

She’s 25% fat, that’s why. Oh, I commented to you already.

Tiina

And you were wrong then, too. Body fat percentage above 25 is considered obese only if you’re a man. With women 25-31% is considered normal and obese is +32%.

25 is OVERWEIGHT. 30 is obese. Fat women love to rationalize, all that energy and time you put into rationalizing, you could be running.

People always make the bone structure excuse, and it’s completely false. I am a medical student and I have seen what bone structure looks like when you strip away the fat. Just look at a CT scan or an MRI and you will see just how much of people’s girth is really due to fat — not bone or muscle.

It’s ok if people don’t want to restrict their food intake in order to be thin. But they shouldn’t blame their figure on their bone structure or their genes.

How can one not? No matter how much I try to slim down (and I’ve gone to extreme to slim down-to a weight that was extremely unealthy for me) I still couldn’t look like my sister or fit into cetain sizes that I thought I would b able to w my extreme weight lost. I’m just built wider n thicker compare to some…how can u not Jane?

I remember being more sad that I couldn’t fit into a 0-2 daisy dukes like my sister can when I should have been worried about that I was starving myself and at a very unhealthy weight. the best I could squeeze into was a 4 n even that was tight. it was such a sad time in my life I equated weight and pant size to my self worth.

Isabel
Guest

@GeDe: I have the same with my hips. Even when I am super skinny (I have been) my hips stick out like crazy. And that is not fat, just bone. Even at my skinniest (I looked and was very unhealthy, just skin and bones) I was never a size zero,even if i wanted to. The only way to achieve that was taking a chainsaw and slice off part of my hips xD

Liv

I agree. I have such narrow hips and while other women who weigh the same and the same height as me (a few of my friends) have wide hips and/or broader shoulders. I have a very narrow frame. To say that it’s just fat is silly to me.

You are correct, and you are your own unique shape because of genetics-genetics passed down and your own unique genes-these things can determine how we distribute weight on our bodies. Like i mentioned before my mother is vry petite size 4 and eats what she wants and never exercises, I am the opposite and never get below a size 10. Also if I do gain weight I put it on in my abdomen.

Um, I don’t really understand how you can be a medical student and say that differences in bone structure are completely false (or that using it as an excuse is always false)?! It’s extremely obvious that people’s bone structure varies – as does the propensity to gain weight in certain areas, etc. I gave an example above of Karlie Kloss – she’s the same height as Robin basically, but her frame is obviously more fine-boned – I don’t need an MRI of them both to see that it’s not just fat that makes Robin bigger, it’s the width of her… Read more »

I am a physician who specializes in adolescent health and works at an eating disorder clinic in a major childrens hospital.

Makes sense to me EmmMD!

It certainly seems to me that the causes for obesity and the variations in people’s genetics (as they relate to their body mass, shape and inclination/disinclination for weight gain) is a fast-evolving area in scientific understanding. It’s clearly a complex issue and people trying to dismiss anyone who is ‘bigger’ than that person’s preconception of ‘normal’ as lazy and/or gluttonous is plain wrong and unfair. No one is naturally obese, but some people are certainly naturally ‘smaller’ or ‘bigger’ than the ‘norm’.

thank you! 5″3 and 300lbs is not a normal weight, and not something you can blame on genetics or “bone structure” but I would consider myself to fall into that “naturally larger” section.

She does not look like she exercises regularly, and looks like she loves food and eats whatever she wants, which is most likely the Standard American Diet. So, yes, you can look at someone and tell if they are getting enough physical activity. Guess what? She’s admitted to both. She’s said she does not exercise regularly and ‘loves food’ and has talked about her love of high carbohydrate foods, which anyone who works in diabetes and obesity research will tell you, is a detrimental factor in obesity.

Maybe it’s not bone structure but I do think there is some genetic predisposition to be a certain body weight. I have a friend who NEVER works out and eats poorly and she is very slender and toned. I work out every day and eat healthy/clean 80% of the time and am still thicker than her. You can’t tell me genetics have nothing to do with that.

Guest

How can you not blame your body type on your genetics? Genetics determine so much of who we are. Some people have slower metabolisms, some people have faster metabolisms. Some people store fat primarily in their limbs, some people store fat primarily in their abdomens. It’s foolish to say that what determines our appearance is solely based on our actions. In high school, I was practically underweight, but because of my build, I didn’t appear as thin as I was. And, short of plastic surgery, my legs will never be stick thin. It isn’t in the cards for me. However,… Read more »

Jane, When people use the “bone structure excuse,” they’re not literally referring to bones. It’s a misnomer, but what they’re actually referring to is the body’s disposition. Some people inherently store more fat, and some people inherently have better developed muscles. And this is a very real thing. For example, I have very crappy muscle development, to the point where if I don’t weight train regularly, my weight is underweight. This is regardless of my diet. My body’s genetics don’t allow me to have a lot of muscle “naturally.” Likewise, for some people, it is the opposite. And the same… Read more »

This reminds me of the whole body type thing: mesomorph, ectomorph, and endomorph. Some people develop muscle very easily and some don’t.

I was never able to find the scientific evidence behind those three specific body types… but it seems reasonable enough.

Maybe the “basics” are the same but you just can’t determine where the fat goes the fastest, not to talk about muscle. There’s definitely a difference how much muscle one’s body maintains in a certain weight. When I loose weight it doesn’t come of from my hips or upper body and arms easily and have wide hips. I thought I was fat when younger and entering puberty because my father’s lady friend said that I should be able to wear the “kids clothes” that run with the height, 140cm, 160cm etc. But i was already growing to be a (short)… Read more »

People might take liberties with falling back on frame size as an excuse, but it is medically relevant for determining healthy weight ranges. If one pelvis measures several inches larger than another, those people are not going to have different ideal pant sizes. I’m sure as a med. student you can appreciate that human beings do have variation in size of their skeletons and that the size of one’s skeleton does set a lower limit on what size that person can be and still have flesh.

While I completely agree with and believe that some people have a higher set weight point than others (with contributing factors like naturally large breasts or naturally muscular thighs) the “bone structure” argument just doesn’t make sense. Yes, you can have a wide rib cage or pelvis, which might make you look wider or have a larger pant size, but those are really the only bones that would make you look bigger, and that’s not going to make you overall “fatter” or give you a beer belly, etc.

Annie

Well, I for instance am quite slim but have wide set hips and bigger bones in my legs. Therefore I will never have skinny calves, no matter what – which sucks.

Bethany

Right, and I have a wide rib cage, which makes my stomach wider but it doesn’t make it or me overall fatter, if that makes sense. Having wide set hips or leg bones might make your calves larger (and some people just have naturally large, muscular calves) but it won’t make you fat all over!

It does make sense. It’s not all about bones and muscles, it’s about fat deposits, too. Everyone has fat, regardless of how much most people try to get rid of it all, and everyones fat deposits differently around their body. I’m 5’10” and 145lb, have a larger bone structure and I’m also pear shaped so I carry the majority of my weight on my hips, thighs and butt. I could lose 20 more pounds and my upper body would look emaciated, but I would probably still be a 8-10 in jeans because of my shape. I can never lose all… Read more »

Her skin looks like plastic in these photos – not a fan. I just don’t understand why we can’t have models who are inbetween ‘high fashion size’ and plus size. Nevertheless, Robyn looks stunning.

Erica

But I would say Robyn is one of those models who is ‘in-between’. She’s not skinny, but she’s certainly not fat either – and her dress size is (reportedly) a UK 12, which is a US 10 – for 6’2″ that is hardly ‘plus size’, imo.
What I’d like to see is shorter models who are in-between – say a size 6-8 – that would be unusual and refreshing!

You’re right, a short girl can look good alone in a photoshoot if she has good proportions. The first problem with that is most short girls don’t have good proportions, taller people have better leg and limb proportions. The second is on runway or photoshoots with other models they look stumpier, if I’m explaining it right. Longer lines look better so yes height does determine it a lot.

Why are 99 percent of models taller than 5’9? Kate Moss was very thin thats why, and she was an anomaly. Fashion insiders even said she looked out of place because she had short bow legs.

This is if we put one short girl next to a bunch of tall girls, they would look less stumpy if there were more of them. 99 percent of models are taller than 5’9 because currently the fashion industry uses models as a “hanging rack” for clothing but what would be more effective would be girls of all shapes and sizes so that everyone can get an idea of what clothing looks good on all body types. I am in the opinion that some clothing look better on different body types. There are some things tall, thin girls pull off… Read more »

Yes it does, there are no beautiful short women, attractive – yes, cute – maybe……but not beautiful. It must be something about bone structure and facial dimensions, height that is, all the women with beautiful faces – Brooke Shields, Christy Turlington, countless models…….all of them are tall. And tall just looks better than all shrunken limbed andshort anyway. Eva Longoria looks like she had stunted growth due to nutritional deficiencies. In fact, grains caused a loss of height in human evolution, but that’s another topic.

Agreed! This “anonymous” person is a nut job. It’s like she NEEDS people to agree that tall and skinny models are ideal. Sounds like insecurity to me.

I’m short and curvy but I can find beauty in taller girls, thinner girls, girls bigger than me, whatever. I don’t NEED people to agree that short and curvy is better. Who the hell cares that much? Insecure girls with body issues, that’s who.

She’s not a UK 12, she’s about a US 10-12.

Erica

Oh, okay – I tried to find her size and saw it on the Daily Fail so assumed it was a UK size they were referring to. Her measurements are supposedly 36-32-42, which should make her a US 10-12 as you say – and a UK 12-14? I get so confused by dress size conversion – some stores put it at one size difference, and others two between the US and UK. In my experience a US 12 is usually like a UK 14 but sometimes 16……

A US12 is meant to be a UK16 but there is no standardised sizes I know when I try on American clothing I can be anything from a 0 to a 4 when in UK clothing I am usually an 8 sometimes a 6.

Erica you just want all models to looks exactly like you do, because you are so insecure with your own looks/body, which is obvious since you bad mouth anyone who doesn’t look exactly like you do. You seem to think you are the poster girl for all things “attractive” and how it should be you and people like you in the magazines. you are so transparent. I can see right through your tactics. and I think it’s quite pathetic! It’s funny how you have an opinion on everything and everyone.

I don’t know how unusual it is. Hillary Duff, Jordan Sparks, Penny from Big Bang Theory, Kate Winslet, Britney Spears are all women who (to me at least) tend to be thick, muscular, and just bigger framed in general but not fat. I’d say it’s actually relatively common

I think I’m thick too because I’ve got large bones and it shows: even when I’m at my lowest my wrists or calves remain quite large, I’ve got big hands, strong legs and it comes from my mother.

One of the most stunning faces in the industry, regardless of her size. Though I disagree with her quote about bone structure…being “big boned” does not mean you cannot be thin..plenty of models have larger bone structure and are very thin. its quite rare to be a 6 foot tall woman and not have wider bone structure than someone several inches shorter. she may not fit into a size 2 (nor should anyone that tall), but that certainly doesnt mean she cannot be slim…its all relative.

BTW I’d post the links to AGE’s, but they have to go through moderation first. Wikipedia…….. I think it’s “vegetarian”, has a paragraph on the aging of vegetarians, and AGE’s……don’t normally recommend Wiki, but the reference used for the info on AGE’s is a trustworthy one. Bye.

Erica

AGE’s are advanced glycation end-products, right? Well, they are not just in the blood of vegetarians from what I’ve read – they seem to be present in a higher concentration in vegetarians though. From what I’ve read (a couple of sites) they are often formed in cooking as well as in the body – so barbequed foods are high in AGEs and vegetarians seem to have more than meat eaters in their own bodies because the carnosine that meat eaters ingest helps to reduce AGEs in the body.

That’s what I understand of it anyway.

Lectins: Foods with high concentrations of lectins, such as beans, cereal grains, seeds, nuts, and potatoes, may be harmful if consumed in excess in uncooked or improperly cooked form. Adverse effects may include nutritional deficiencies, and immune (allergic) reactions.[15] Possibly, most effects of lectins are due to gastrointestinal distress through interaction of the lectins with the gutepithelial cells.

You are eating these lectins and toxins in excess, if you are a vegetarian, I think that’s the point trying to be made here, not that a serving of rice will kill you, but that a veg diet is by it’s very nature, high in those toxins MH is talking about. Don’t know how anyone could be into nutrition, and not know that a vegetarian diet is unhealthy, and fat promoting. Baffling.

Yes, that IS the point I was trying to make. Also, many nutritionists are just people with 4 year nutrition degrees, and nothing else, they are not MD’s, or evolutionary biologists, or physical anthropologists – who in fact, often have a better understanding of the human body and human evolution as it relates to diet. I have seen many practicing dieticians, who haven’t even heard of lectins, and still think there is such a thing as an ‘omnivore’ GI tract. Baffling indeed.

Frame size is relevant to where your measurements are going to land even with low body fat, and it certainly is a factor in healthy weight ranges.

And like she had to be a model of some sort? Her face is bit dorky and she really isn’t as lush as I’d like a plus sized model to be… I have ‘better’ curves than her and I’m not plus sized. Anyway there’s truth in her sayings!

Yeah, even at my thinnest I have wide hips and a wider torso, some-what like Kim Kardashians torso – so I still look bigger even though slim. So I totally get where she is coming from, good for her though…. nothing wrong with loving food.

It is normal and healthy that she is the size she is given how tall she is. I think she looks good, much better than that Tara Lynn( who is overweight) Robin is healthy and about 6ft tall. It isn’t the same as a 5ft 5 inch woman being her size. She doesn’t represent the “real women brigade” because how many women are as tall as Robin is?

Christina Hendricks is a big woman, if you can’t see that then you must be blind. Why does it offend you so much? you don’t seem to have a problem with people bad mouthing thin women.

She’s like an Amazon: gorgeous, curvy and my god, towering stature! Just beautiful. Love her quote as well. Though I’m not a fan of the plastic-looking photoshop effects.

Bones have nothing to do with how much you gain, that’s genetics, she is fat because she has a genetic tendency to be fat. She also does not exercise regularly, and eats everything, according to her own words, so…….she’s full of it, both ways haha.

she’s overweight, but she hardly looks obese. especially not enough to be lumped into the same category as Gabby Sidibe…

Wow! Too many posts on this blog! I don’t really care for a medical or scientific reasoning behind why people are different shapes & sizes. However, u cannot say everyone who eats “right” & workouts will look like Gisele bundchen! That’s just down right crazy!!! For example just looking at body types alone, u can tell that Ashlee S. & Jessica S. have completely different body types. Even in her daisy dukes days, Jessica never looked like Ashlee. because she’s more muscular and her body is “bigger” compared to her sister ….. Heck even Kendall and Kylie have different shapes… Read more »

33% is too high to start at obese, it’s not 33, it’s 30, and Robyn is close to it, she’s got too much fat on her to be attractive or to be healthy, she admits she eats everything, I have read her quotes before, she eats tons of grains, she doesnt exercise hardly at all. Nothing to envy, or emulate here I must say.

No, I never told you to look there, I only mentioned reputable sights.

The “Paleo Diet”, is the diet man evolved on, they ate very MUCH meat, and were taller and had wider skulls and jaws and were physically better developed more than modern man. My cholesterol and blood pressure are not high, I never even mentioned them, nor am I underweight. You sound like the fool now.

I don’t see MH mentioning his or her cholestrol or blood pressure or weight. And both of you are incorrect. The level of meat the paleolithic people ate, depended on what period of the paleolithic area and where they lived. Some ate very little animals, some ate nearly their entire diet of animals. But none of them were vegetarian. Vegetarian diet is not how man was intended to be, it is unnatural, and not healthy, for the reasons listed here.
