At a U.S. size 12 and a UK 16 Robyn is the curvy exception to the stick thin rule, and she says the impossible Hollywood ideal is making models miserable.
'There is always a fear that you are not going to make it so women force themselves down into a size that does not really match their body,' Robyn toldRadarOnline.com.

'You are putting your life on the line. I would be so miserable if I got told to lose 30 or 40 pounds. I don’t think I could do it!' she said.
Robyn, who is signed to Australian agency Bella and recently posed for a sizzling swimwear shoot for Australian Cosmopolitan as well as landing a contract as Ralph Lauren's first plus-size model, has been a model since the age of 18.
Talking about the swimwear shoot Cosmopolitan's Fashion Director, Nicole Adolphe, who cast Robyn ahead of 'regular' sized girls said: 'Robyn totally embodies what a real woman is, and our readers adore her - so I HAD to shoot her for our special swim issue. And what a shoot, she simply oozes sexuality and is the ultimate Cosmo girl.'
She has also posed for fashion tomes French Elle, Vogue Italia and Marie Claire and sent sales of smalls soaring for UK lingerie brand Boux Avenue as the body of their latest campaign.
She added: 'I just don’t get it, that heroin chic look isn’t my cup of tea. It isn’t for a lot of people out of the fashion world. That starvation look isn’t for everybody, why not have someone who is a little bit bigger?' .
When she was signed to model for the company Robyn said: 'The brand is striving to promote a healthy body image, they are making beautiful lingerie accessible to every woman.'
