Former Miss Ireland Emma Waldron is showing off her hard earned results at the gym.
The top model (26) is currently living in New York where she is signed to MSA Models, and has been carving out an impressive niche for herself in the Big Apple.
Waldron, an avid Instagrammer, proudly posted photos of her enviable bikini body in a black two piece swimsuit as she soaked up the sun at the Dream hotel.
"It's a hard life but someone's gotta do it! #summer in #NYC," she captioned the photo.
Emma, an Irish size 10, is being marketed as a 'curve' model and has already landed high profile modelling gigs with Macy's department store and rubbed shoulders with legendary supermodel Tyra Banks.
She is also an avid fitness fanatic and has increased her workout regime since moving Stateside.
And the body confident beauty said that she doesn't get caught up in labels.
"My body is my body - it doesn't matter what label they put on it," she explained.
It's called the 'drip drip' effect. When messages fed to consumers over a period of time sink in and stick. The 'drip drip' effect on women is in relation to the thousands of images we see each day of emaciated, malnourished models and celebrities.
