10 Victoria's Secret Models Share How They Really Feel About Their Bodies

February 06, 2015 4 min read

"I'm a woman, of course I still have curves on me, and that's OK." Have you have ever wondered how the Victoria's Angels actually feel about being in their own skin and about their "perfect" bodies? Here are a selection of quotes that show that they are actually pretty humble and normal sounding. Although it must be amazing to be blessed with a body that was considered "perfect" by pop culture standards, I'm also left wondering what kinds of pressure and insecurities comes with that role as well. As great as I'm sure it is, on some level the totality of your professional value (and to a certain extent your identity) is based on just your physicality - and nothing else. How would that actually feel day in day out, and would you be constantly aware of your own shelf life? Screen Shot 2015-02-06 at 1.55.01 PM 1. Alessandra Ambrosio "Every woman has a different metabolism and different genetics, so rather than compete with one another, concentrate on yourself and be the best you can be. Everyone has days when they don't want to show anything. That's what the good ol' jeans and a T-shirt are for. So many times, I haven't felt ready for shoots. I'm like, why didn't I work out more? But it's life." — Self, 2014 Screen Shot 2015-02-06 at 1.56.24 PM 2. Adriana Lima "My body has changed a lot since I gave birth — it happens. I work out and I look after myself. I take this seriously because it's my job... After you have kids, you realize the real values in life. Today's women are so independent, with their own jobs, able to stand up for themselves, that gives me a lot of confidence also." — Us Weekly, Dec. 3, 2014 Screen Shot 2015-02-06 at 1.56.37 PM 3. Doutzen Kroes "I have to work really hard. My body — I have a voluptuous body. I am not one of those skinny girls. I like to enjoy life. I am a totally healthy girl that eats but eats in moderation and I take care of myself." — Associated Press, 2010 Screen Shot 2015-02-06 at 1.56.50 PM 4. Karlie Kloss "I don't think people realize half of the things that we do [or eat]. We are humans, we are normal — I live my life, I have a wonderful, happy, healthy life. I indulge! But I also work hard. I work out and I train and I'm very active and always healthy, but, you know ... I have a sweet tooth. It's about balance, because that's the only way to [keep your routine] sustainable. I don't diet; I'm not a fan of diets or fasts. I just do my best to stay healthy." — Cosmopolitan.com, Dec. 4, 2014 Screen Shot 2015-02-06 at 1.57.05 PM 5. Lily Aldridge "I'm a woman, of course I still have curves on me, and that's OK. I had a baby and I've worked hard. And I don't think women should have to feel that kind of pressure. I've done it really healthfully, and I took my time. Even though four months is really fast. I think you have to ignore those things, because I'm a human, and I did as much as I can." — The Huffington Post, Nov. 7, 2012 Screen Shot 2015-02-06 at 1.57.22 PM 6. Jourdan Dunn "As a teenager, I wanted to be a dancer or an actress. I hated looking in the mirror because I was so tall and thin. People kept saying, 'You should be a model,' but I couldn't think of anything worse than doing a job that highlighted my height and weight. I think, actually, it's something I've only recently got used to. If I could tell my younger self anything, it would be to learn to love your flaws. It's OK to look in the mirror and feel really confident about yourself." — Daily Mail Online, Nov. 8, 2014 Screen Shot 2015-02-06 at 1.57.32 PM 7. Candice Swanepoel "The secret to body confidence for me is obviously working out and doing as much as I can, staying healthy at the same time, doing as much I can for the show, and knowing I tried my best. And knowing what attributes you have to show off." — SheKnows, Nov. 9, 2012 Screen Shot 2015-02-06 at 1.57.41 PM 8. Elsa Hosk "It's important for the people who watch this show to know that we all train like it's the freaking Olympics. We work hard to look the way we do, and it's not something that will come by starving yourself or not taking care of yourself. It's really like a full-time commitment." — Celebuzz, Dec. 2, 2012 Screen Shot 2015-02-06 at 1.57.49 PM 9. Joan Smalls "I just want to continue to break barriers, and to show the industry and the world that beauty is diverse, and you don't have to be a certain stereotype to be beautiful. When you look at the world, the world isn't just one palette. It's a beautiful rainbow, and why not have someone to represent that rainbow?"— CNN, Sept. 7, 2012 Screen Shot 2015-02-06 at 1.58.01 PM 10. Martha Hunt "I also don't want to overdo it because there's only so much you can do — you don't want to get too thin. You have to have a balance. So, I am working out everyday, and I don't do too much cardio… I've realized they do want their models to have curves and support that. For me, it's a relief to have a company that is down with that. Most of the time, you always feel like, 'I could be thinner.' VS likes you better when you look healthier."— Harper's Bazaar, Nov. 8, 2013 Reposted from Cosmopolitan Magazine

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
