An Australian model is getting a lot of attention for a photo that is going viral.

Robyn Lawley, 25, is considered a plus-sized model but a photo that she posted on Instagram has many people wondering why.

Lawley says she was unhappy with some of the plus-size swimwear she was seeing, so she decided to create her own line.

Recently, the model took to Instagram to show off one of those designs.

Hundreds of people liked and commented on the photo.

“Plus size??? Are you freakin kidding me??!! If this is plus size, then everyone I know is morbidly obese. Wow,” said one commentator.

“In what world is she a plus size???” said another.

“The fact that this is plus sized makes me sick. She is flipping gorgeous, long and lean!” said one mother on Instagram.

While many people are upset that her body is considered plus-size, some people were angry Lawley would feed into the system.

“You are not plus sized. You are a regular sized individual. No more, no less. It is an insult to people with real weight issues that you title yourself with this. #getreal,” said one commentator.
