The 25-year-old Croatian stunner was unashamedly pinching more than an inch in the snap she shared with her army of followers on the social media site.
She said: “There is a lot of false perfection on Instagram so I wanted at least today for you to grab some honest and happy energy, to inspire you and relax you.
“This is me. Honest and happy! And no, I don’t need anyone else to prove or confirm that to me.”
Lucija, from the Croatian capital city of Zagreb, got more than 8,000 likes for her refreshingly undoctored photograph.
Netizen ‘yaroslavbas2018’ reacted: “Amazing pose and I respect your self confidence”, while ‘selimovicsara90’ added: “Bravo, congratulations on the bravery and support you gave to many with this photo. You look gorgeous.”
The brunette, who is said to be her country’s first plus-size model, regularly shares pictures of herself flaunting her ample curves online with her fans.
Lucija, whose role model is US plus size model Ashley Graham, 31, last year married 35-year-old sushi chef Danijel Grlic.
She says she is now comfortable with her body shape but admits that it was not always the case and that she was subjected to bullying annd teasing at school over her weight.
