We live in a world where the perfect body may or may not exist, but more often than not we receive all kinds of mixed messages indicating what society perceives as beautiful.

From a size six to the term plus-size, the reality is that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, and it's unrealistic to think otherwise.

Hayley Hasselhoff - daughter of David Hasselhoff - has been modelling in the plus-size world since the age of 14, and is more than proud to advocate for woman in and outside the fashion industry.

"People always want to go to the extreme negative side of things, and it's the same with plus-sized models. Plus size in the industry means curves.

"Let me break it down for you. Straight-sized boards are models size zero to six. Plus-size boards are models starting at a 10.

"If a size eight girl was 5' 11 and curvy, she'd be on the plus-sized board, because there's nothing in between," she tells

These women work out to be healthy, happy and confident that's it.
