The 29-year-old shared snaps of different women wearing her Swimsuits for All collection on Instagram, which garnered a number of harsh comments suggesting they suffered from diabetes and heart disease.
“Next Type2 diabetes would be a thing of ‘fashion’ for big girls,” wrote one commenter.
“I’m sorry, I love these bathing suits, I love the confidence… but I cannot and absolutely never will promote obesity as something good,” another said.
In a series of stories, she asked her followers not to make ignorant remarks other people’s health in relation to their appearance.
“Don’t make comments on my page about health, especially if it’s not your own body,” she said.
“Your health is your business. Don’t put your insecurities onto other people. Beauty comes in all shape and sizes. Media should be showing a more diverse group of women and their different skin tones, bodies, and ages altogether.”
