The Dirty Side of Modeling: ‘They told me to do PORN’ Sexy plus-size model spills all modeling industry

News

A GORGEOUS model refused to bow down to beauty standards after being told her body was only suited for the sex industry.

Stunning plus-size bombshell Olyria Roy is on a mission to spread body positivity.

When she first started modelling in her native Russia, the blonde beauty was told she would never be a success because of her body type.

But Olyria now has 85,000 followers on Instagram alone and is set to launch her pop music career.

She told Daily Star Online why it was so important for her to ignore the critics and defy unattainable beauty standards.

“When I started out it wasn’t fashionable to be plus size if you wanted to be a successful model.

“I was told I needed to be skinny and I even had agencies tell me ‘if you want to be a model you need to cut off your breasts’.

“They told me that with my body all I could do was porn. But it wasn’t what I wanted to do. I wanted to prove that plus size women were sexy.

“It really hurt me. I was upset but I always thought ‘I don’t agree’.”

Everything changed for the Olyria when stars like Ashley Graham made being curvaceous sought-after.

“It was so amazing because suddenly curvy models started to gain popularity and agencies in Russia wanted more plus-size women,” she said.

“They realised that models that were not a size zero could do a great job too.”

The stunner – a dead ringer for Marilyn Monroe, who she calls her ultimate inspiration – was then invited to take part in a beauty pageant for curvy women.

She won by a landslide and was crowned Miss Curvy Russia last year.

“I was overwhelmed with the reaction,” Olyria said.

“After being told by so many agencies that the way I looked was wrong for modelling – that really got to me.”

Now the busty babe – who splits her time between Russia, Barcelona and the US – is soaring in popularity and gearing up to release her first single.

“I couldn’t agree that plus-size models couldn’t be successful. I refused to let it stop me,” she said.
