Yes. Bridget revealed on an Instagram post that a client had fired her for gaining half an inch around her waist.

Bridget credits this as the final straw which made her seek help.
"I have been rewarded with my highest profile clients when my hips were at their smallest (33 inches). And when I gained half an inch from that, I lost those clients – being told that my body did not look good enough...I’m thankful that the sheer insanity of being rejected over half an inch of gain (which was not enough to get my periods back, or stop my hair from falling out) was enough to get myself into recovery from my eating disorder.”

“If you feel the need to alter your looks, then I am never, ever, going to judge you for it, and I acknowledge the power of choice in this circumstance,” the model said. “However, I wish there was more of an investigation into why women feel the need to do this – especially at a young age.”
