Bold And Beautiful: Victoria’s Secret Swimsuits 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.”

    It's a universal struggle to view our bodies objectively; thus, when someone pays you a compliment, trust their sincerity. Embrace the positivity and let it bolster your self-esteem, for their words are a reflection of the beauty they see in you.

    "Remember, comparing yourself to a model is like comparing apples to oranges. The truth is, very few of us align with that ideal, and that's perfectly okay."
