A curvy model loves her "saggy boobs" – and wants people to know all breasts don't need to be big and perky.
Paula, 24, has been flaunting her curves in front of the camera for four years.
She wanted to be a model since she was just 13 years old, when she looked up to the likes of Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss.

But the British lass soon realised that agencies – at the time – only signed women who were size 6 or smaller.
Desperate to follow her dreams of being a model, Paula convinced herself she needed to lose weight.
And in the process, she ended up developing an eating disorder at 15-years-old in an attempt to shrink herself into the industry 'standard'.
After battling with her mental health for three years, Paula started to recover and started to focus on her health.
She now embraces her curves instead of hiding them away – and inspires others to do so too.
Paula – known as Spicy Mami to fans – now has thousands of followers on Instagram and TikTok, where she posts body positive content.
Speaking exclusively to Daily Star, she said: "[Modelling is] honestly my passion. There’s just something so beautiful about standing in front of the camera and creating magic.
"I feel empowered, beautiful and I feel like I am creating something that I never thought I could.
"As TikTok got more popular I started to post more on there and it is amazing just to see how many people can relate.
"The messages that I get on both Instagram and TikTok are amazing, people relating to me and telling me I’m an inspiration is all I ever wanted.
"My aim is to make people feel good about themselves."
Even though Paula loves her curves, not everyone is so kind about her.
She often nasty remarks from trolls – with men calling her breasts "udders" and labelling her as "fat."
Paula thinks this is an issue due to there not being many models with saggy boobs.
And she wants to show that you can still be sexy – even if you don't have gigantic perky knockers.
"I think a lot of men constantly see perky boobs and fake boobs in adult movies and social media," Paula said.
"This then creates an idea that saggy boobs like mine are not attractive, as saggy boobs are usually associated with having children or being old.
"I think it is insane that this is the way our society thinks.
"But I also don’t blame men for feeling this way since this is what they have always been exposed with, especially the younger generations.
"I think most of the comments I have received have been from younger men."
While she loves modelling and is confident in her own body, the reality of being a plus size model isn't easy.
Working in an industry where her body shape is not universally accepted can be difficult.
Many people associate saggy boobs with parenthood or being old – even though Paula is neither a mum or pensioner.
"Being a curve model and just being curvy in general is definitely not easy, I don’t mean it in a 'I want people to feel sorry for me' way," the stunner said.
"But, people unfortunately are still stuck in those mindsets that everyone should be slim and athletic and have perky boobs.
"Once you don’t fit that category, you are seen as worse or unattractive.
"Putting yourself out there does attract hate and negative comments, my saggy boobs have always been an insecurity of mine and I definitely sometimes still feel insecure about them.
"Saggy boobs are associated with being old or having kids, the comments I’ve heard from people are insane – mostly men as well!
"I used to worry about what people said about them, but now I just ignore the comments or simply block that person.
"I don’t need that type of negativity in my life. I realised that a lot of people who behave like that have secret insecurities themselves.
"Like how can you hate on someone who loves their own body – not in a cocky way!
"I’ve literally hated my body for most of my life. Sometimes I still do, don’t get me wrong.
"But, I try not to worry about it as everyone is different and forever hating your body just creates a lot of sadness.
"It starts to make you compare yourself to others and as they say, comparison is the thief of joy."
