She quickly catapulted to fame by rejecting the fashion industry's insane body standards and gained a large following for refusing to retouch her photos on social media.
Seemingly overnight, Lawrence suddenly became one of the most well-known faces in plus-size fashion.
But when it comes to representing the curvy community, many people are divided on whether Lawrence is *actually* an accurate representation of "plus-size."
Over the weekend, Lawrence uploaded a series of bikini photos, showing off her curvy frame.
"Savage Saturdays," Lawrence wrote. "Where the fudge sticks are the tacos[?]"
Many fans applauded Lawrence for posting unretouched swimsuit photos...
"Thanks for sharing positive minded body images!" one follower exclaimed. "It's much needed to all girls around the world!"
... but others were alarmed to see fellow commenters refer to Lawrence's body as "plus-size."
It's important to remember that plus-size bodies come in all shapes and sizes. Lawrence has fuller thighs — but she also has a flat stomach, a tiny waist, and a size-12 clothing size.
Lawrence never once said she aimed to represent ALL plus-size woman, but many people found it disheartening to see her smaller-than-average body being called "plus-size."
"No shade because I think she's beyond stunning but how is she a plus-size model?" one commenter asked.
"Yes, she has beautiful hops and bum, her body is the definition of an hourglass figure, but I don't get how that is plus-size."
Lawrence quickly jumped into her comments to set the record straight.
Although she personally doesn't define herself by size, she reminded her followers that the fashion industry does indeed consider her "plus-size."
"I'm considered plus-size by the fashion industry because I do not fit into the U.S. sample size 2," Lawrence insisted. "As a 12, I am closer to the plus-size samples in size 14."
She attempted to finally put an end to the "label debate" once and for all.
The fashion industry may call her plus-size, but she doesn't want to limit herself to that label.
"I've never defined myself by size," she concluded. "I have always said, 'I'm Iskra.'"
