Sabina Karlsson Pens Emotional Message To Her Teen Self About Body Image

During Christian Siriano’s spring 2017 NYFW 2016 presentation, the former Project Runway contestant brought out five plus-size models alongside the “straight size” models. The models were; Precious Lee, Georgia Pratt, Marquita Pring, Sabina Karlsson & Alessandra Gracia and they all wore his ready-to-buy collection, modeling long gown and bodycon numbers no designer would have dared put on a curvy lady five years ago.

The audience was touched, fans took to Instagram, posting thanks by the dozen to Siriano for showcasing women in many sizes, but, in a strange twist, so were the models. Swedish model Sabina Karlsson was one of the curvy women who walked in Siriano’s show, and she wasted no time sharing how his creative choice affected her.

In an emotional Instagram post, Karlsson wrote,

When I started of as a straight size model (US size 4) I thought that the only way to be beautiful was to be skinny. I was never naturally that size. I had to work out up to 3 times a day in order to maintain those measurements. It was a struggle.

Yesterday I walked for Christian Siriano @csiriano in a gorgeous body conscious dress and I loved it!! I wish that someone would’ve told 17 year old Sabina that one day you’ll appreciate the body you’re suppose to have. Not once yesterday did it cross my mind that I wasn’t beautiful – I was proud. This is a milestone for me.

So people, try to love yourself more – Be Confident & Be You.
