London, Oct 12 : Wonderbra model Katie Green, who quit her job after being told she was 'too fat', has been signed by Ultimo.
The 21-year-old, who's a size 12, was left devastated when a top-modelling agency said she was needed to lose two stone.
However, a few days later, her confidence received a big boost, when Ultimo signed her up.
"I really didn't know where my career was going to go after the depression of being told I was too fat," News of the World quoted her, as saying.
"But when you published my story, Ultimo contacted my agent to sign me up with a prestigious new contract.
"My life has been completely turned around in less than a week-and it's all thanks to News of the World," she added. While Green, of Chichester, West Sussex, was modelling for Wonderbra range, the lingerie firm suggested her to sign up with Premier Model Management, which asked her to diet to a size 10.
"It knocked my confidence for six and really embarrassed me. Had I lost the two stone, I would have looked like a bag of bones. I won't sacrifice my health," she said.
Green is now modelling Ultimo's D-G range.
Ultimo boss Michelle Mone said: "Katie's figure is beautiful and she looks so sexy in our latest designs."
