Marisa Miller's Advice To Plus-Size Models: 'Have Confidence' (VIDEO)

Marisa Miller knows how to perform under pressure. The actress and lingerie model who got her start modeling a $3 million bra for Victoria's Secret is no stranger to the challenges that come with public presentation.

So it makes sense that her fans want to know her secret to success. When Marisa came to HuffPost Live on Thursday to talk about her role in "R.I.P.D.," Dr. Kanesha Waites of Mrs. Plus America asked for pointers: "What is your advice for plus-size models?"

Marisa answered instantly: "I think it's so important just to have confidence in your body." Models, it's that simple. She continued, "Everyone knows that confidence is sexy, and it's knowing your assets, your strengths, and just playing those up."

We couldn't agree more. As the divisions between so-called "plus-size" and "straight-size" models fade, the single quality that will set talent apart is the ability to project a positive image. According to Marisa, it's obvious when a model tries to hide her insecurity -- so why should she worry when she can instead spend time celebrating what makes her unique?

Watch the segment above to hear more of Marisa's advice. What does confidence mean to you?
