Publisher's Summary

When she suffered a seizure that saw her hospitalised with a cracked skull and facial injuries, Robyn Lawley started to reassess her future. Australia’s leading plus-size model had always called out body-diversity blind spots, but now wondered whether she could continue working in an industry with such a rigid view of beauty.

So Lawley embarked on Every Body, a journey to redefine physical beauty, in which she looks critically at the #BodyPositvity movement and asks: who does it leave on the margin, and what is a better call to action? 

Lawley talks to actress Jameela Jamil (The Good Place) about chronic illness, comedian Bridget Everett about the healing power of laughing, actor Ryan O’Connell (Special) about dating with Cerebral Palsy, actress Dascha Polanco (Orange in the New Black) about how race informs her identity and iconic model Paulina Porizkova about ageing in the fashion industry.

Lawley talks to people thriving in bodies with Tourette’s Syndrome, Down syndrome, mastectomy scars, burn scars and those with bodies who were born different, such as Paralympian Kobie Donovan who competes at just 3’10 tall. 

Every Body examines the stories we all carry in – and on – our bodies, providing an inspiring roadmap for how to accept our imperfections and even come to celebrate them.

Essential listening for anyone who inhabits a body

Enlightening, inspiring, challenging and plainly brilliant.
Five stars seems an insult to this perfect body of work.

A triumph

I absolutely loved listening to Every Body. Huge congratulations to Robyn Lawley and Naima Brown. It covers so much. So many angles. It’s raw, open and honest and is everything that is right with dialogue around the human body at the moment. Every human. Every body. Every single beautiful human thing.
I would recommend this to anyone - have a listen - it’s awe-inspiring.

Thought provoking

Developed by someone who works in the fashion / modelling industry and aimed at confronting the body positivity trend. These episodes shine a light on what diversity really is. Wide ranging and interesting.
