Australian plus-size model Laura Wells (size 12 US) recently shared some details about her experience living with straight size models and the extreme measures they follow in order to maintain their skinny figures for Fashion Week. Here’s what Laura said:
‘It goes to the extremes. No food being eaten, prescription dietary pills, agents telling girls that they’re only allowed to have one cracker and a couple glasses of water leading up to fashion week per day. It’s completely unhealthy, not only for their body but mentally as well.’
‘These girls are going to extremes to look like that, and then not being booked for any jobs. And then living with a plus size model who’s working every single day and comparing themselves to me. I eat healthy, I work out, but I’ll let myself have a treat every now and then and have a glass of wine. They couldn’t fathom the fact that they were putting themselves through so much stress and I was so happy with myself.’
