The world of modeling is much more depressing than you think. Every day, hundreds of thousands of Tyra Banks-wannabes sacrifice their well-being just to meet the industry’s unbelievably unrealistic standards.
But with the initiative of a few front-runners, there has been quite a big change in the industry thus far, particularly on how we depict models. Saowaluk Hirokajung Ping Anawong, for one, is a thriving model in Thailand not in spite of, but FOR her chubby body.

Aside from her gorgeous face, Saowaluk’s game-changing take on body image has catapulted her to fame. After all, when was the last time that anyone rebelled against the beauty standards of Thailand, the famous land of cosmetic surgery? (The country is also famous for television shows featuring ‘ugly’ locals winning a total makeover through plastic surgery procedures. Yikes.)
Really, this chubby model and her body positive perspective are a movement in itself. And we get exactly why she’s standing out in the midst of all the generic models in her country – As the saying goes, “There’s nothing sexier than a woman being confident in her own skin.”
