It's no secret that beauty standards are ever-changing, but one feature which has been "in" over recent years is a large derriere (thanks for that one, Kardashians).

However, despite the current popularity of big bums, one Instagram star has now claimed that her butt was once "too big" to get modeling jobs.

Arabella Chi, who rose to fame on the British edition of Love Island, revealed that when she began modeling, she was told to lose weight from the age of 16 by agents who deemed her behind to be too big for their catwalks.

Explaining how her behind got her blacklisted by some fashion brands to The Sun, she said: "I love my bum but I think it is because I've learned to love it. It's what makes me proud.

"My hip measurement was always a measurement that modeling agencies told me I had to get down. But when they measure your hips, it's actually your bum.

"I used to cast for really big shows and for Fashion Week and they would always tell me, if you didn't have a bum you'd walk for Chanel and Dior… and I'm like, I can't do anything about it."

The 29-year-old model added that her agent told her that it was in her best interests to lose weight and reduce the size of her behind, which is why she is now loving the recent embracing of larger butts.

"I went to Milan, and they said, 'You're bottom-heavy'. So I was constantly fighting my bum."

"But it's been amazing to see the whole world change, that everyone now wants a bum, and now I'm like, God, I'm so glad I have a bum - I'm glad I struggle to get into jeans. I love that I have to wiggle into them."

This revelation comes after Chi recently joined the online subscription platform OnlyFans to share exclusive pictures and videos - naturally, of her butt.

However, despite the popularity of OnlyFans with sex workers, Chi maintains that she will "never ever be tempted" to make explicit adult content.

"Being a social media influencer, so many people are so intrigued about what you do [to keep fit]," she said.
