Plus-Size Model Iskra Lawrence Shows How Easy It Is To Fake A Thigh Gap

Iskra Lawrence remains a model who technically falls under the “plus-sized” label, but, at size 14, doesn’t fit the stereotypical bill. Most folks realize the fashion industry’s unyielding ways and tendency to place every body into a specific box. Iskra is proud of her body and absolutely detests being Photoshopped. She doesn’t mind her stretch marks and even shows them off whenever the opportunity presents itself. The last time we caught up with Iskra, she was mocking those who call her fat. She recorded the best video and photo session of herself enjoying potato chips while giving the finger. She also pulled off a hilarious American Beauty parody while surrounded by empty snack bags. She continues the trend by eating chocolate in slow-mo.


Iskra began a new mission a few days ago when she posted a fantastic “before and after” set of selfies. She set out to obliterate the thigh-gap trend that’s wildly popular on pro-anorexia websites and — unsettlingly — the whole of Instagram. She figured out how to fake a thigh gap and explains her process in the photo’s caption:

“I’ll be the first one to tell you pics are all about good lighting and angles. Always remember social media’s not real life, never let anyone else’s pics make you feel insecure about yourself. If you don’t look like her and she doesn’t look like you that’s how it’s meant to be. You are meant to be YOU, no one else, your body is your home so love and respect it. When you look after it beautiful things happen.”

Then Iskra posted two photos from the same selfie situation, and her posture differed wildly. Behold the power of a magically appearing thigh gap.


And in an instant, every thigh gap on Instagram will look completely fake after learning this simple and ridiculous method. Let’s see what else Iskra has been up to lately. Lots of Aerie modeling and tons of fun.
