Former Victoria's Secret Model Slams Company for Making Her Pose Seductively

Former Victoria's Secret model Kylie Bisutti has lashed out at the famous lingerie company for making her pose seductively. Kylie opted to leave her job as a model for religious reasons back in early 2012 and now she has even penned a book about her experience, named 'I'm No Angel: From Victoria's Secret Model to Role Model' which will tell all about her career. 

Kylie says she decided to quit when a photographer working for Victoria's Secret said posing seductively clad in lingerie "is what Victoria's Secret models do". She then had a realization:

"That's when it hit me, I was being paid to strip down and pose provocatively to titillate men. It wasn't about modelling clothes anymore; I felt like a piece of meat. The next day, I broke down and started sobbing. I was in my bedroom and dropped to my knees and started to pray, saying: 'God, why did you have me win the Victoria's Secret Angel competition if it was going to make me feel this way? I'm not honouring my husband. I just want answers!'"

She also says she didn't like how Victoria's Secret models made other women feel bad about their bodies because they were constantly comparing:

"I realised that I didn't want to model anything that sold sex, at the time, a Victoria's Secret lingerie show was airing on TV, and I was looking at Twitter and saw loads of tweets from women comparing themselves to the impossible image of the models. I realised my career was sending a bad message to women about confidence and body image."

Kylie comments that she is happier now and even working on her own clothing line of "modest clothes":
"It spreads my message, which is that beauty isn't about what you look like, it's about what's in your heart, that's the most important thing."
