Underweight Model Posts Exposé on the Fat-Shaming Modelling Industry

19-year-old Agnes Hedengård, a 5ft.11 in tall Swedish model with an “underweight” BMI of 17.5. She has been modelling for five years, but as of recently, has been rejected by agencies for being “too big”. In exposing the absurd expectations of the industry, she filmed her reflection in her undergarments.

“I don’t get any more jobs since the industry thinks I’m too big. They think my butt is too big, and they think my hips are too wide. According to the modelling industry, you cannot look like this. You need to be thinner.”
