If they really want to get woman to love their body then maybe they shouldn't have Victoria Secret models doing the advertising.

They need to follow an example set by a German magazine (sorry forget which one) and go for a mix of sizes.

Body by Victoria is a bra collection, that's what they're talking about.

It's gotta be tough to love your body when you look like that ^^ .

@Pistil, #8: I liked those comments, as well. I think a lot of people focus on how touched up the face and overall body types of such models look in the end result, but it also applies to overall skin appearance. If you've ever looked at yourself naked in a full-length mirror in bad lighting, it's easy to see all the teensy imperfections of regular skin, from blemishes and moles to scars and discolorations. And of course you don't see those things on models, who look like mannequins most of the time, because of lighting/touching-up/make-up/etc.... Still, it's nice to be reminded that even the models know they don't REALLY look like that in real life.

how to tell your man he smells bad: make a slightly bad smell face. lean in when he is aware of you and what you are doing.. smell the air around him. sy "... oh.." make a vaguely grossed out or dissapointed face..He'll either ask, or figure it out himself! men are not idiots, and if he's really "your man" you can just tell him "sniff.. you smell.." or "... did you shower today?"

@ Anon #7 - yes, because of how they look. They're models, and I think they do an excellent job of modeling lingerie. I didn't claim it was "deep." I'm sorry, did I give you the impression that I expected to have some sort of transcendental experience while shopping for nude bras to wear under my work shirts? It's just underwear. I'll be the first to admit that I don't look like a VS model since I work out a lot and thus have a more athletic looking body. But I guess I'm lucky in that my entire sense of self-worth isn't based upon whatever VS ad happens to be running in this month's Vogue, so it really doesn't bother me that it features women who are thinner and prettier than me.

I'd model that underwear. And then all the VS models and photographers would laugh at me. :D I love my body because it has had a baby and can hike right up a mountain...but dude, it looks like it's had a baby and hiked right up a mountain or two. That's why I'm not an underwear model.

I love the Victoria's Secret models too. They are beautiful to look at and I enjoy looking at them. It's part of their job to look perfect even if it involves makeup, props, and camera tricks. I'm pretty sure the love my body campaign is a play on words to promote the body by victoria line. I think what they are really trying to say is love these bras. I could be wrong though.

"I do believe in chicken fillets," she tells the paper, describing the rubbery breast enhancers that help ladies achieve a fuller and perkier looking bust. "I'm not saying you have to use them, but if anyone knows me and sees me in a photoshoot, well, there are friends in there. I've been known to have three in at a time for shoots -- plus padding."VS model Selita Ebanks fessed up to "about 20 layers of makeup on my butt alone." That makes me feel better about my body :) To photograph well and look good under spotlights, models wear layers upon layers of make-up. And then there's the touching up of the photos afterward. The resulting pictures are far from reality.

They're gorgeous and all, but um, that's not doing anything to help me love my body. Maybe if VS invented a pill that would keep me at my current weight and then stretch me 6 inches and give me some boobs. Then I'm sure I'd be all over this campaign.

i like the VS models too chloe, it just bothers me that they're trying to "help you love your body" by doing the same thing they do in every catalogue. if they didn't have that stupid slogan, i wouldn't care at all!

Yeah...what kind of self esteem issues would you need to have to *not* love your body if you looked like a VS model?
chloe-bella chloe-bella 5 years
I love the VS models. Yeah, they have better bodies than 99% of the women out there but (drumroll please . . . .) that's the point! That's why they're MODELS. When I walk past the Lane Bryant store in the mall and see 175+ lb women modeling underwear, well, it sure doesn't make me want to buy it.
