MAFS star’s incredible ‘revenge body’
She won plenty of fans on Married At First Sight, and Elizabeth Sobinoff is continuing to wow them with her post-show transformation.
On Thursday, the store manager shared a photo on Instagram of her posing in a pencil skirt that showed off her midriff, sending followers into a frenzy over her "revenge body" and "that waist".
"Omg! That waist with your curves! So envious!" one commenter wrote.
Sobinoff has an auto-immune condition similar to lupus and blood disorder porphyria.
"I think I always look fabulous. I've thought that when I weighed 49kg and when I've weighed 90kg … I'm actually dealing with some health conditions that cause my weight to fluctuate," she said.
"I may gain weight again and that's OK. The most important thing is that I've always been mentally strong."
Alongside the interview, Sobinoff posed in a bikini for an accompanying photo shoot, sharing the photos on her Instagram account.
While the pictures were met with a mostly positive response from her fans, several accused her of promoting double standards and claimed the pictures were Photoshopped.

One more from this shoot 🖤 let me just say the people who left negative comments about these pics, shame on you. Talking about thigh gaps, I have a thigh gap, I’m not the most tone person on the planet I have really big hip bones and the top of my legs don’t touch, apologies for my bone structure offending you. If you are choosing to ‘zoom’ in look at my stretch marks and dimples and where my tan has worn off. Look at my rolls even in this picture. People saying you lost weight how is that body confidence. Honey, I was posing in bikinis way back when. Do me a favour read my articles or click the link in my bio. People say I hope ‘that’ comment didn’t get to you. No. It didn’t. Let me say this, YOUR comments are the things that affect people, I’m open about my weight fluctuations due to illness. I’m cool with me but there are people with similar issues who are sick and tired of your nastiness. Everyone cops comments on a daily I’m just speaking out loud for a lot of people. The attention comments, are you serious? Grow up. I’m putting myself out there so others can feel better about themselves. I’m risking a lot to raise awareness. I’m going to keep posting my body. Teach body love. Maybe those comments come from insecure people. Who don’t love their bodies. Why are we conditioned to hate our bodies, and if you love yours, it’s like, how dare you?
However, Sobinoff clarified this wasn't the case, writing on her Instagram story while there was some editing involved, it didn't include altering her figure.
"Someone said in my last post it was photoshopped! Um no, take a look, laughable. Yes there would (be) brightening techniques but no sweetheart," Sobinoff hit back.
Sobinoff's weight was criticised by her partner on the show Ball, who received plenty of backlash for describing her as a "bigger" girl.
"I've never really dated girls as big as Elizabeth in the past," he told producers after seeing her for the first time at their "wedding".
