Lucija revealed that she had on several occasions gone on really extreme diets just to loose some weight to enable her fit into a certain stereotype, an action which made her end up being admitted in the hospital.
She revealed further that due to her size, she was unable to find clothes she loved in Croatia, which made her end up dressing in Skirts and dresses.
I am happy to be able to break the prejudices surrounding women’s bodies. After I came on the scene there were many girls with plus sizes calling the agency, interested in becoming a model like I am.
People should get used to being open and honest.
The plus sixe model added:
In the past I spent endless time trying to conform and lose weight, but now I am happy and just do some Pilates to stay in shape and keep my health up.
Some man once said to me: If you look like this now, what will you look like when you are 40?
I ignore stuff like that. I get more positive comments than negative ones.
For some I am too fat, for others too thin. Some even say that I am ugly, but I manage to overcome all of that.
Lucija Lugomer, who is most comfortable in underwear revealed that, she was spotted at a meeting by an agent which gave birth to her modelling career.
