Kate Upton to Bring a Healthier Body Image to Victoria's Secret

Does Kate Upton Bring a Healthier Body Image to Victoria's Secret?

OnSugar blog The Fash Pack raises an interesting question about Victoria's Secret's attempt to portray a healthier image. Read what she has to say and tell us what you think!

Meet Kate Upton, the Victoria's Secret model who's charged with bringing a healthier, more attainable body image to the lingerie brand. Just last week, model Candice Swanepoel was criticized for looking "shockingly thin" at an event (even though she's never exactly been on the heavy side), and other Angels have previously been known to cut out food groups and work out for two hours a day for months before the Victoria's Secret runway show.

These photos of Upton, an 18-year-old and former Sports Illustrated swimsuit-issue model, just came out this week, allegedly showing that Victoria's Secret can be for people with more realistic shapes. What do you think? Does it bring a change to the brand?

I do think that Kate Upton looks a lot more curvy and healthier than most of the victoria's secret models. I am seventeen and I know that ads, campaigns, etc make young women feel more self conscious about their bodies. Although Victoria's Secret does make their models wear smaller bra sizes, Kate is a 33D. Not a DD

I personally see a more realistic figure here..the kind most 18 year olds have without being anorexic.., the days when you can eat whatever ,whenever...she looks healthy to me. www.marsoline.onsugar.com

Are you kidding me? I'm confused -- what about her is "more realistic"? She's still stick-thin...she just looks like she hasn't been on the yoga mat all day like Madonna.

seriously. You cannot find anything above a DD, and those are hard to come by too.

She mainly looks like they gave her a bra that doesn't fit to make her chest look bigger or "curvier". She should seriously be wearing a cup above.
