Plus-Size Model Robyn Lawley: ‘The Fashion Industry is Starting to Include All Sizes Now’
When we spotted her at theBergh Ballat Manhattan’s Plaza Hotel last night—an event that raised more than million toward protectin homeless, abused and abandoned animals across the U.S.—we had to know if she’s seen any improvement in the industry since she initially made those biting (and true) observations.
“I think it’s doing really well at the moment,” Robyn (wearingIsabel Toledo’sexceptionally chic new plus-size line forLane Bryant) revealed to StyleCaster at the event. “So many of my friends are doing such amazing things; my friend.It’s definitely moving in the right direction. I get to do normal straight-size work now, which is awesome. That’s what we wanted from the beginning. I think it’s really shifting; they’re starting to include all sizes now. Especially with girls likeKate Upton.”

And what of the sample sizing problem she spoke of before?
“Sample sizes are just designed for runway, and [designers] are kind of stuck in their ways with that,” Robyn confessed. “That’s the final frontier for including different sizes. That does suck to me, because when I go to pick a dress, sample sizes are all a 0 or a 2, and I’m like, ‘I can’t get into any of these dresses!'”
Regardless of her size (or anyone’s, really), this is one beautiful, intelligent woman who isn’t afraid to speak her mind.
