It's official—Robyn Lawley is on FIRE. Not only does the 2015 SI Swimsuit rookie sizzle on her first MAXIM Australia cover, but she's also offering insight on what it’s like to work in an industry that so often represents one shape, size and standard for beauty.
In her cover interview with the magazine, the Australian beauty reveals the most common stereotype she’s encountered:
“I guess it would be that we are overweight, which just isn’t true,” Robyn said when asked about the biggest misconception about curvy models. “Most curve models I know are so fit and healthy, but we are also really tall, so it’s impossible to be a smaller size.”
This isn’t the first time Robyn has shot down stereotypes, and here at SI Swimsuit, we think her body-positive messages are so fierce.

Last year, Robyn proudly called out Instagram for banning the search term “#curvy” from its database, deeming the censorship “ridiculous” and “shameful.” She later showed off her “badass #tigerstripes” after giving birth to her daughter Ripley, encouraging women to embrace their stretch marks and post-baby bodies. How's that for bold and beautiful?
