No one can argue with the fact that Body Image is a massive problem in our Society and an issue that gets talked about a lot. When you are watching the absolutely stunning Victoria Secret Models walk down their AHmmmmazing fashion show, i bet you are thinking that they would have absolutely NO problems with Body Image! Well guess again, what they have to say about body image might surprise you.
1. SARA SAMPAIO
"People need to realise that models get [professional] hair and makeup, incredible lighting, and we know how to pose. I've been doing this job for almost 10 years so I know how my body looks good from different angles. But I don't look like that in real life. I'm like every other girl; there are things I wish I could change about my body, but I try not to think about them too much." — The Edit, 2016
2. ADRIANA LIMA
"I can't say that when I was younger I was totally confident. The industry is hard, and when you're an unknown model, you could either get great jobs or be rejected. Rejection is never easy, but you have to have grit in order to keep going and hold your head high. Becoming an adult and having children has helped me become more confident in who I am as a woman. I've become more self-aware and understanding of my strengths on a deeper level, which helps me become more confident on the outside. So my best advice is to forget everything and everyone, and just feel good." — Byrdie, 2016
3. ALESSANDRA AMBROSSIO
"After having Anja I only had three months to lose all the weight [before doing the 2008 Victoria's Secret show] and I was on this 1,200-calorie-a-day meal-delivery service that I hated. I couldn't do that again. [Show prep generally] is so stressful . . . there's so much pressure on us all — not just in terms of shape — and the energy gets sucked out of you, so my favourite thing to do afterwards is dance all night long." — Elle, 2016
