Margaux Deckers is a big advocate for body confidence.

In a statement Margaux released to us she says:

“As a dancer, I don’t have size zero, but size 36-38. The fashion world is changing bit by bit and I see that more and more strong brands love to work with models with normal body size. Models that are happy with themselves and feeling good! It’s all about working hard and finding the right people to collaborate with, people and brands who love you for the person you are and not for the size of your hips!! #bodyconfidence #nosizezero
