A model was deemed “too fat” to walk in a fashion show – despite weighing just over 8st.
The fashion industry is notorious for upholding unrealistic beauty standards for women, which often leaves many people feeling insecure about themselves.
And despite the work of the body positivity movement, some designers still want models to be extremely thin in order to wear their clothes.
Arisce Wanzer has now spilled the truth behind the fashion industry after experiencing what it is like first hand.
The stunner dueted a TikTok with model Snezana Pisar after her modelling agent said she was not "skinny" enough for Paris.
She hit the gym to shed some weight and added: "This is absolutely true information, when I was modelling in New York I was 6'1 and 123lbs and was told that I'd have to lose 10lbs to be considered for Paris Fashion Week."
According to the BMI, weighing 113 pounds would be dangerously underweight as if you measure in at 6'1, a healthy weight would be from 140.2lbs to 188.7lbs.
And, by looking at the comments this comes to no surprise to fellow models who have experienced similar remarks about their weight.
One beauty claimed: "I'm 5'10 and needed to be 108lbs for Paris. I made it to Paris but also made it to organ failure."
Another shared: "Same I was 135lbs and 6'1 and told to lose weight. So I quit and now I'm 150lbs and much happier."
Whilst a third model related: "5'10, 114lbs and was told I'd need to lose 5lbs. I quit everything that day. Cancelled shoots already planned, DONE. I was over it."
Others fled to the comments to share their shock that the modelling industry is still 'toxic'
One person commented: "That's so toxic! I lost my period when I was under 120lbs at 5'9."
Another user added: "It amazes me that this type of modelling still exists when everyone knows how incredibly dangerous it can be. Like can we PLEASE get rid of the phrase "human coat hanger" like I understand it's high/couture fashion but PLEASE use more "average" sized people."
Someone else noted: "I can't even understand that. We are most beautiful when we are healthy. Why is being sick a fashion standard?"
As a fifth user applauded: "Good for you for outing this bizarre standard."
