Last year, Robyn Lawley became the first plus-size model to ever be featured in Sports Illustrated magazine. But at a size 12, Lawley doesnt think she should be defined as such in fact, she thinks we should do away with the label altogether.

E! News caught up with the Australian stunner earlier this week as she got ready for the magazines annual Swimsuit Issue party.

Despite it being an honour to be the first of her body type to be featured in the magazine, Lawley explains,

[the plus-size label] was given to me because models are literally half my size. Compared to regular models, who are incredibly skinny, I look plus to them. But to the average everyday person, Im just like them. So its a tag we dont really need.

The beauty insists her size is quite common outside of the modelling industry. However, she says, curvy women tend to be underrepresented, because the industry is “so stuck&rdquo. On the idea that thin bodies are somehow better.

While being unfairly labelled as plus-size can be frustrating or discouraging, Lawley says it’s important to,

…accept your natural body weightand work with what you've.

In other words: Own your body, love it. Forget about the labels others may put on it. Because if youre comfortable and confident, thats all that matters.
