HAYLEY Hasselhoff has opened up about her relationship with her figure saying she has good and bad body days’.
The plus-size model, 27, revealed shes banned the word confident when talking about her body.
The daughter of actor David Hasselhoff says she instead focuses on being connected, and that learning to accept her body has been a journey.
She told Superdrugs Dare magazine that after she began modelling aged 14, she became an advocate for beauty coming in “all shapes and sizes”.
Since the the launch of her modelling career as a teenager, Hayley said it’s been a “continuous journey”, and she has “good body days and bad body days”.
She said: I never like to use the word confident when I talk aboutmybody.
“I use the word ‘connected’ because I feel Im very connected to my being, my self-worth and self-love, so if Im having a bad body day, I can change my mindset, remember who I am and that my body doesnt define me.”
She added people often have a preconception about what we should look like, when its what we feel like which should matter.
Hayley reflected on her recent foray into singing after appearing on Celebrity X Factor, after she wasnt selected for the live shows.
Despite the setback, she told the mag she still “loved every minute” of the experience.
Ultimately she said that she never set out to become a role model, but hoped people would be inspired by her journey.
After being a “voice” for plus-size fashion growing up, Hayley praised brands for catering for more sizes now, saying the shift was a long time coming.

Hayley added: Now, Im not saying it shouldonlybe curve it should be all shapes and sizes but I think people are starting to wake up.
