Iskra Lawrence, best known as the plus size model who stripped down in the subway, was recently criticized for not actually being "plus size".
While fans appreciate her posting non-retouched photos on her Instagram, they cant' help but point out that she's in no way bigger than the average woman.
According to Revelist, Iskra responded "'I'm considered plus-size by the fashion industry because I do not fit into the U.S. sample size 2,' Lawrence insisted. 'As a 12, I am closer to the plus-size samples in size 14.'"
One fan pointed out, "No shade becase I think she's beyond stunning but, how is she a plus size model? yes she has beautiful hips and bum. her body is the definition of an hour glass figure but i don't get how that is plus size. Just looking at my body towards hers makes me look obese."
While it's not Iskra's role to facilitate the "what is plus size" conversation, it's nice to hear that this particular model's mission is to remind people that "Every Body Type is beautiful and we shouldn't have to change ourselves to fit a certain mold."
