Last week, Sayantani wrote a widely shared post on Instagram, in which she spoke about the sexualisation of breasts, the importance of self-love, and why women shouldn't tolerate such comments.

In a new interview with a leading daily, she recalled one of the earliest instances of body shaming that she had experienced, when she was still a teenager looking to break into the modelling industry. “One of the first instances that I recall is from when I was 17-18 and doing a modelling shoot in Kolkata," she said. "While we have always conceived models to be tall, skinny, and slim, I was slightly on the heavier side. A woman came up to me and passed a distasteful remark about my breasts. Often, I have seen that it’s not just men but even women who make us feel bad about our bodies. A lot of these issues stem from our conditioning and mentality which needs to change. We have so much modern tech at our disposal but if our thinking is still limited to how a person should look, then it’s sad,” she continued.

Sayantani was inspired to share the Instagram post, titled 'Does size really matter?' after she was asked by a troll about her bra size in an interactive session.

"Yesterday in one of my interactive sessions someone asked me my bra size! Though I gave the person a befitting reply (which btw a lot of you appreciated) still I felt there is so much more I want to talk about.. Any form of BODY SHAMING is BAD!! Period. But particularly, I struggle to wrap my head around the fact that what is this fascination towards female BREASTS ?? As to what size it is ?? A cup, B, C or D etc ?? And it's not only the boys, even us girls have this sort of a conditioning!” she wrote.
