Swimsuit model is sick of being body-shamed


Model Nina Agdal is sick of being body-shamed.

“I’ve been modeling for 10 years . . . and I’m over acting like it’s fine,” she tells The Post at Aussie brand Zimmermann’s Fashion Week show.

Last month, the Danish beauty took to Instagram with an emotional story: A magazine — subsequently identified as Venice: Fort Lauderdale – had declined to run her “cover/story” because it did “not reflect well on [her] talent” and “did not fit their market.”

According to Agdal, the publication also claimed she didn’t fit into sample sizes on set — an accusation she angrily denies.

“After a tough year of taking a step back from the insensitive and unrealistic pressures of this industry . . . I walked into that shoot as a 25 year old WOMAN feeling more comfortable in my own skin and healthier than ever before,” the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue mainstay writes.

“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.”

Though the experience took a toll on the model — “I cried for like half an hour,” she tells The Post — her words quickly went viral.

“I’ve gotten so much feedback from girls I know, girls I don’t know, girls not just in the industry but from all around the world who are going through the same things,” she says. “I felt super vulnerable . . . but it was the most liked and commented post I’ve ever done.”

Last month, the magazine issued a statement to “Megyn Kelly Today”: “We think Nina Agdal is a beautiful and extremely talented model. That is why she was the focus of a 10-page story published in our Winter issue. Regarding the cover, while the images from the shoot were lovely, they did not yield one that we felt worked as the print cover. To clarify our choice, it had nothing to do with how Ms. Agdal looks in a bathing suit – her physique is enviable by any criteria.”
