Ideal forms made the model feel emptiness and suffering.
27-year-old English plus size model Iskra Lawrence is known not only for her successful modeling career, but also for her negative attitude towards photo retouching.
Spark recently revealed on her Instagram account what she looked like 10 years ago. Who would have thought that this cheerful girl previously met the "ideal" model standards and was very unhappy.
I remember how proud I looked during that shoot. Now people call me fat, and I'm just happy to be healthy and grateful for my body, which I call home. I used to get encouragement from the fashion industry and try to be “perfect”. I thought that if I looked like "her" (unrealistic ideal of beauty), I would be successful, beautiful and loved. But all I got was emptiness and misery …
And here is the same snapshot. The photo on the right was taken a couple of months ago, and the photo on the left is 10 years ago.
Iskra also said that she sacrificed her hobbies and spent all of her time on grueling diets and exercise.
The best thing I've ever done in my life is to focus on myself, on taking care of myself. Listen to yourself, your body and feed them without feeling guilty.
At her current weight, Iskra looks great, but most importantly, she is happy.
