Last week, Hayley Hasselhoff made history as the first plus-size model to cover a European edition of Playboy — but judging by her experience behind the scenes, the magazine still has work to do on the inclusivity front.

During her appearance on “Tamron Hall” Thursday, David Hasselhoff’s model daughter, 28, told the talk show host that she had to wear her own clothes for her groundbreaking shoot, as the glossy didn’t have anything in her size available on set.

“You know there’s still a long way to go when it comes to availability for fashion,” Hasselhoff said. “When it came down to actually fitting my figure in this lingerie, it’s all me. It came from my wardrobe.”

Continued the curve model, “At the end of the day, I’m so used to it. And it’s sad to say that I’m used to coming onto set and sometimes not having the right pieces [available] because of my size.”


Still, Hasselhoff chose to look on the bright side.

“To be honest with you, it made me feel more confident and comfortable on the set anyway because I already felt good in these pieces,” she told Hall of her looks for Ellen von Unwerth-shot spread, which included a red satin robe and a black lace bra-and-briefs set styled with a matching cape.

“And I’ve done a lot of research … growing up as a curvy woman with a bigger bust and having to find the right brands that have availability for my size that are also sexy and beautiful.”

And the blond beauty is still incredibly proud of her latest career milestone.

“I am overcome with emotion around what this cover signifies for inclusivity and its greater purpose towards female empowerment,” she wrote in a lengthy Instagram post sharing her Playboy cover last week. “I wanted to use this platform to express that you have the power to love your body without hesitation because of societies’ standards of beauty.”
