Today, I’m disappointed and appalled at the still very harsh reality of this industry. A few months ago, I agreed to shoot with a creative team I believed in and was excited to collaborate with. When my agent received an unapologetic email concluding they would not run my cover/story because it “did not reflect well on my talent” and “did not fit their market,” the publisher claimed my look deviated from my portfolio and that I did not fit into the (sample size) samples, which is completely false. If anyone has any interest in me, they know I am not an average model body - I have an athletic build and healthy curves. After a tough year of taking a step back from the insensitive and unrealistic pressures of this industry and dealing with paralyzing social anxiety, I walked into that shoot as a 25 year old WOMAN feeling more comfortable in my own skin and healthier than ever before. Some days I’m a sample size, some days I’m a size 4, some a 6. I am not built as a runway model and have never been stick thin. Now more than ever, I embrace my curves and work diligently in the gym to stay strong and most of all, sane. I am proud to say that my body has evolved from when I started this crazy ride as a 16 year old GIRL with unhealthy and insufficient eating habits. So, shame on you and thank you to the publisher for reaffirming how important it is to live your truth and say it out loud, no matter who you are or what size. I decided to release an image to draw awareness and support of an issue that's bigger than just myself and affects so many people not just in the fashion industry, but in general, with the goal of bringing women from all over together in a celebration of our bodies. Let's find ways to build each other up instead of constantly finding ways to tear each other down. #bodyshaming #bodyimage #selfimage #dietculture #mybodymybusiness

Sports Illustrated model Nina Agdal has hit back at the modeling industry after an unnamed magazine refused to run a story about her because she didn't fit into sample sizes.

The 25-year-old Danish beauty took to Instagram on Friday to share a topless photo of herself taken at the shoot while sharing an important message about body image and the importance of living your truth.

'Today, I’m disappointed and appalled at the still very harsh reality of this industry,' she wrote. Nina explained that she had agreed to do a photo shoot a few months ago with a creative team she was excited to work with. However, the editorial never ended up running.

'When my agent received an unapologetic email concluding they would not run my cover/story because it "did not reflect well on my talent" and “did not fit their market," the publisher claimed my look deviated from my portfolio and that I did not fit into the (sample size) samples, which is completely false,' she said.

'If anyone has any interest in me, they know I am not an average model body - I have an athletic build and healthy curves,' she added.

Although she had taken some time off from modeling to deal with pressures of the industry, Nina said she truly felt proud of her body on the day of the shoot.

'After a tough year of taking a step back from the insensitive and unrealistic pressures of this industry and dealing with paralyzing social anxiety, I walked into that shoot as a 25 year old WOMAN feeling more comfortable in my own skin and healthier than ever before,' she said.

Nina explained that her body fluctuates, and sometimes she is a sample size and some days she wears a size four or even a size six.
