Model Iskra Lawrence is one of our favorite chicks to follow on Instagram. How stupid it is that people call her a “plus-sized” model when she’s anything but:

I HATE that term. It’s used by fashion publications and websites to indicate that a woman has curves without saying explicitly that she has curves. It’s kind of a clever synonym editors use in empowering body image posts to tip-toe around pissing models off.

But the reality is that SOME women who *don’t* consider themselves “curvy” or “plus-sized” or whatever get offended by that type of categorization, just because their body type goes against a modeling norm. It actually *is* kind of insulting when you really think about it. Like back in 2012, Christina Hendricks almost lost her shit when the reporter referred to her as a “full-figured woman” in a television interview.

Anyway, /end rant. I just don’t think there’s anything necessarily “plus-sized” by this British lass Iskra Lawrence. The term “plus-sized” suggests some sort of traditional norm that she’s compared against. She’s just a beautiful chick who isn’t built like a twig and takes sexy ‘grams. Plenty of wonderful babes like that in the proverbial ocean.

Now she’s back in the news for “declaring war on the fashion industry” for RunwayRiot, a “fashion-focused site that speaks to women of all sizes.” She posted this video the other day, which is actually a pretty empowering, body-positive message:

But look… I’m not naive. That’s not why you’re in the post. You’re in the post because you want a check-in on her Instagram account. We just did and we can tell you that it is still absolutely glorious.

Keep on keeping it real, Iskra Lawrence.
