Each month, PLUS Model Magazine spotlights a new up and coming plus size model. This month, meet Danielle Roux of Sydney, Australia.
What made you decide to become a plus size model?
When I was younger I was a straight size model. I never could maintain the ideal weight. I had a 25 inch waist and my agent kept telling me I had to have 24 inch waist to get work which lead to me to have a bad body image of myself. I had an amazing figure and always thought I was too fat thanks to being told my waist was too big. Luckily as I got older and had my son, met my partner (who really appreciates a curvy figure) I developed so much body confidence/love that I decided to try modeling again – this time as a plus size girl. I felt I needed to show everyone that you can still be beautiful no matter what size you are!
