How Victoria’s Secret Swimsuits Look On Everyday Women

This revealing photo-series compares models wearing Victoria’s Secret swimsuits and everyday women working for BuzzFeed. The shoot took place on a beach in Malibu where each woman tried to re-create the pose and look of the original Victoria’s Secret shot. Although there was ample opportunity to feel self-conscious, the experience yielded some insightful commentary.

One woman reflected, “I think everyone should get photographed on the beach in a bathing suit at some point in their life…it is a really fun experience that kind of helps you to get over any insecurities.” Another shared a similar sentiment: ”We may not all be models, but the world is a runway for ALL of us.”

Kristin

“It’s really hard to be objective about your own body — so when someone says something nice about you, you should believe them”

Nina

“Don’t compare yourself to the model. Very few of us are the model”

Sheridan

“You don’t have to look like Behati to wear a swimsuit. Do what makes you happy and you’ll be OK in the end”

Lara

“We may not all be models, but the world is a runway for ALL of us”

Allison

“I think everyone should get photographed on the beach in a bathing suit at some point in their life… it is a really fun experience that kind of helps you to get over any insecurities”

Kirsten

“Having airbrushed skin and zero fat doesn’t make you beautiful, having confidence and radiating that confidence makes you beautiful — ‘flaws’ and all”

I agree, Christy! They actually look truly gorgeous, a lot better than I would wearing them!! And it's not about making myself feel better about my body, it's about knowing that those photographs haven't been airbrushed and still look amazing.

My fav is Alison. Because shes most like me. Its nice to see an article about 'every day women' that includes 'athletic slim build' for a change rather than what the world deems as 'curvy'
