OMG I hate that! I can only wear their bathing suit bottoms that tie (size L). I can’t wear the ones without ties because they cut into my hips and thighs giving me some muffin top. Sad thing is I’m not overweight at all (6′ normally 160 lbs) so you would think I could wear something by them…but nope!

I absolutely get what you’re saying and I agree with the fact that this kind of thing (the pre-show ritual) shouldn’t be something that is used for a prolonged period, and I’m glad I won’t ever have a need for it in my actual life. I’ve also heard that body builders can suffer greatly from dehydration cramps if they try to drop water weight too much, so I’m surprised we don’t see anyone falling off theor stilletos from a foot cramp (ouch!!)
You also bring up a good point about what these ladies look like on a “real life” day vs the runway – very interesting!
+1, I at least eat Baked Cheetos while I watch it instead of regular ones… 😉
Heck, last year at my lowest weight (5’11” and 150 pounds) I had to buy an XL swimsuit bottom at Target… And I hardly had much of a butt!! WTH?

We can agree to disagree.
Totally fine. Im glad you work hard to be what you find ideal. Not everyone agrees.
@Treejewel19: I’m sorry but these particular women in this particular setting should not be an inspiration to anyone.
Yikes. I’m sure a lot of them are just super super healthy, but its sad that some are not…
I would love to see a variety too!! 🙂

+1! When I was 150lbs, I couldn’t wear them, either! I’m 5’7″. When I was a size 2-4 on our honeymoon (125lbs), the bikini bottom I bought was a size L! Their bikini bottom sizing is definitely funky…

it has nothing to do with what I or anyone else finds ideal. It has to do with you being snarky about other women’s bodies. We can agree to disagree on that though.
I don’t think it’s fair to make comments about underweight, ideal, or overweight women. It’s all bodyshaming.

I dont mean it to be snarky. I truly find some of the models weights concerning. I dont believe that they are all healthy. So I find it alarming when thats what our society is aspiring to look like and some are hurting themselves to do so. Not everyone, but some people will literally kill themselves trying to be that thin.

eh if i could trade bodies with someone i would go with jennifer lawrence… definitely not a VS girl.
that being said, are they “too skinny”? i can’t say, i don’t know their health status. but based on looks alone i prefer a little more fat in the midsection and limbs.

@Barbiestylez: They look amazing in my eyes. Fit, healthy, and beautiful.

I don’t think that’s so true anymore. Karlie Kloss, Joan Smalls and the like are definitely off the HF runways and fronting Dior campaigns, etc.

I’ve watched the show a few times before and always thought they were just right. This year, however, I thought they were too skinny.

I definitely agree this is body shaming. It’s ok to bash skinny women, but not larger women? Anyone who says anything snarky about larger women on the Bee gets crucified. Every. Single. Time. But this is ok? I think everyone should focus on their own bodies and learning to love themselves instead of caring what others are doing with theirs.

Thank you! I thought I was taking crazy pills a la Zoolander. Look, Givenchy to Victoria’s Secret in 60 seconds….
(I also think she’s stunning, they need to get a black angel pronto, but they may not want to pay for her)

I think they’re pretty hot. Realistic? No. But I wish all high fashion models looked more like VS models. I prefer the fit look to the skinny look.
I like food too much to ever have abs like that, but they’re nice to look at.
