Curvy Laura Coleman started her career as a skinny size 8 model.
However, opting for a healthier figure, is said to have ruined her catwalk and magazine career.
The 22-year-old blonde has gone up a dress size to a perfect 10 and now is being shunned by modeling agencies for being too fat.
Coleman said, “I really think the curvy girl should be promoted more as a positive image in the media. But the agencies seemed to have a problem with me when I wasn’t skinny any more.”
Eating disorder specialist Emmy Gilbert added: “The fashion world endorses an ideal which can be unattainable or, if achieved, highly dangerous.”
Laura is set to take part in The Miss World pageant in Johannesburg, South Africa, December 13th.
