Agdal said she is proud to say her body “has evolved from when I started this crazy ride as a 16 year old GIRL with unhealthy and insufficient eating habits.”
“So, shame on you and thank you to the publisher for reaffirming how important it is to live your truth and say it out loud, no matter who you are or what size,” she said.
Agdal said she released the image “to draw awareness and support of an issue that’s bigger than just myself and affects so many people not just in the fashion industry, but in general, with the goal of bringing women from all over together in a celebration of our bodies.”
“Let’s find ways to build each other up instead of constantly finding ways to tear each other down,” she said. “#bodyshaming #bodyimage #selfimage #dietculture #mybodymybusiness.”
