Pregnancy looked great on supermodel Lara Stone — but apparently one client didn’t think so.

In a new interview with the London Evening Standard, the Calvin Klein underwear beauty divulged that she experienced some workplace discrimination during her first trimester. Stone said she booked a campaign, then felt a need to tell the company she was expecting, though did not think much of it. When she arrived for the gig, however, she was informed she had been replaced.

“I hadn’t yet had my three-month scan and I felt really vulnerable about everything. I no longer had a job,” the 30-year-old model said. “That was it — I had to just stop everything that I knew; the way my life was.”

The frustration, sadly, didn’t seem to end after she gave birth to a son last May. Stone said that in addition to enduring body dysmorphia, she still feels sized up by an industry that isn’t all too welcoming to changing bodies.

“I’ve had a few meetings because when they hear pregnancy they freak out a bit, so they need to see if I fit in their clothes,” she said.

In 2012, Stone modeled for the advertising campaign of Euphoria perfume by Calvin Klein.

It’s an industry drawback she’s endured from the start, she said, with her (now) famous curves and gap-toothed smile often a source of criticism for bookers. After seven years of attempting to make it in modeling, she finally broke through (and snagged a Givenchy campaign) after switching to an agency that obviously seemed to market her better. It’s an industry she’s refreshingly honest about:

“Everyone’s so nice to you all the time. And it’s like, ‘Ugh,’ you don’t have to be. It feels quite alienating because it’s like everyone’s just lying to you. Because everyone’s like, ‘You’re great!’ And you’re, ‘Well, obviously I’m not.’”
