Women come in all different shapes and sizes.

"Slowly I see small changes, but I think think it’s crazy we even use the word 'plus-size model' like what the actual f*ck ! Can’t we just have models of all shapes and sizes?"

Matthews' followers were supportive of her honesty. 

"Loved you then, love you now! Always have always will. But definitely glad you were honest about the coke because it’s so true, 99.9% of bodies do not look that thin naturally, people should at least be honest on why they looks like that. I’m so glad you are living a better life now. I can totally relate, I used to be a partier and I don’t regret those times cuz they were fun but living a clean healthy life now is so much better."

"You are amazing!!!. In a world where everyone is always trying to project that they are “perfect” you are a breath of fresh air. Thanks for keeping it real."

"I think you are gorgeous in any size!! I need this inspiration, as I am unhappy with my body.. I always feel like I need to be thinner no matter what and won’t listen to people when they tell me otherwise .. it’s all In my head, I’ve never actually been bullied or told I was fat I’ve done it to myself ...To have someone I look up to think this isn’t desirable makes me feel a tad better !! Thank you for your honesty some of us girls really need it."
