A glamour model has claimed she is ridiculed daily for her 'inappropriate' breast implants, fake tan and lavish dress sense – all because she’s a mum.
Bella Vrondos says she is constantly taunted by strangers who believe her love of wearing tight dresses, lingerie and high heels mean she doesn't spend money on her kids.
The 33-year-old model and beauty boutique owner, from Mascot in Sydney, claims people tell her she should dress modestly and adhere to ‘appropriate parental clothing’ but she thinks there is no right or wrong way a parent should look.
“Someone said to me that they’d rather spend their money on their children, but just assuming I don’t spend my money on my kids is ridiculous,” the Kim Kardashian fan said.
Bella said the judgment started as soon as she got her breast augmentation surgery – mostly from other mums.
However she doesn’t care and says she will continue to dress as she pleases while out in public.
“I didn’t get plastic surgery to look like a porn star but because I’ve had three kids and my body totally deformed,” she said.
“I did it to be happy and to feel confident with my body.”
In March Bella, who has thousands of followers on Facebook, received hate online after she posted a photo with of herself wearing a tight beige-coloured dress with her three children at their school.
“I posted a photo on social media of me and my kids at school with their awards and the photo went viral because apparently the way I was dressed wasn’t appropriate for school,” she said.
“People were commenting saying I had my boobs out and I shouldn’t have worn that dress.
“My daughter Keira is exactly like me, she’s the prodigy of Bella. My kids love me for me and don’t want me to change.”
The boutique owner and lingerie designer works hard to be able to afford her lavish looks which includes working 20-hour days and running two businesses.
“My aim is to give everybody the same kind of confidence that I have achieved within those years of looking after myself,” she said.
“When people see me, they get intimidated but when they talk to me they realise that I’m just a normal person.”
