Plus-Size model says she wants to take off her ‘fat suit’ for work

Plus-size model Karoline Bjørnelykke says she wears bras when modeling for several plus-size clothing brands. Many of these brands offer sizes too big for her, she said, but they use her as a model because “they want the neck and face to look slim and sharp.”

“Not only does that create unrealistic standards,” she said in a TikTok posted on November 30, “But standards don’t work.”

Bjørnelykke also says that it’s considered “polite” to wear padding or a “fat suit” to photo shoots. Her video received more than 300,000 views.

“So if the outfit looks really good from the front, it might look like a bad thing from the back,” says Bjørnelykke, who explained that some of her photos include Includes padding and strategic pins of clothing. “My suggestion is to only use women of real size. Because there are so many gorgeous plus size women out there. ”

Bjørnelykke’s video isn’t the first time plus-size models have revealed they’ve been instructed to wear bras for a photo shoot. British model Katie Green talks to Daily mail about her work with padding in 2014 and several other models have told Oil Refinery29 about their “fat pads” that same year.

Reactions to Bjørnelykke’s TikTok range from sadness around the use of cushions during photo shoots to outrage at the modeling industry.

“This explains the middle parts that never make sense,” wrote @happilyeverbaxter.

“This is why I am so self-conscious about my face shape,” commented @bendygendy.

“The [modeling] the industry really hates oversized models,” wrote @nelly_svenson.

The Daily Dot has reached out to Bjørnelykke via email for comment.
