This Model Is Smashing Beauty Stereotypes In The Fashion Industry. When You See Her Figure, You’ll Understand Why.

This is Stefania Ferrario. She’s 23 years old, comes from Australia, and refuses to be classed as a “plus-size” model.

In the fashion industry, a plus-size model is anyone bigger than “average”. Stefania, with her stunning curves, are always classed as plus-size.

But the Aussie girl is hitting back, and campaigning for the fashion industry to #DropThePlus and accept that whatever their shape or size, all models are just that — models.

Stefania slams the modeling world for the effect they have on young girls, as teens are told that any size that isn’t super-skinny is a “plus size” — and that can’t be healthy.

“I am a model,” says Stefania simply, “Unfortunately, in the modeling business you get called ‘plus-sized’ if you’re a little larger than average.”

“I think this can have a negative effect on a model’s chance of success.”

And Stefania isn’t afraid to celebrate her curves — she’s a sought-after lingerie model thanks to her gorgeous figure.

We agree with Stefania — it’s time to drop the plus and accept that every body is a beautiful body.
