Answering a Reader Question #277

Hi Dania!! I'm Julia and I've been wanting to be a VS model since I was little I'm only 12 years old, I meat all the requirements except for the breasts, I don't have big breasts (aww!!). OR maybe their just growing slowly.....

Do we have to have big breasts?? Because I really, really want to be a VS model. Thanks!! 

Hi, Julia! First off, you're 12, sweetie...you're not supposed to have big breasts yet. Lol. There are some girls your age that may have them but in general, you've still got a few more years to grow physically. You are NOT supposed to have a Victoria's Secret body at your age. Please understand that the VS models are 18 years of age and older. So for now your bust size shouldn't be a major concern. Besides, you can't do lingerie modeling until you are 18 anyway so you've got some waiting to do.

You don't have to have big breasts in order to be a VS model. Many of them are between a B and C cup. What many people don't know is that in order to sell the bras better, the VS models wear bras that are 1-2 sizes too SMALL so that their cleavage pops out a lot. It just photographs better and is a marketing trick. You'll find that not all of the VS models have these enormous breasts that many people believe they do. Remember, nothing is as it seems in modeling. :-)

For now, please enjoy being 12 and do not agonize over how your body currently is. Being young only lasts a short time and being an adult lasts forever, haha, do don't be in a rush to grow up just to be a VS model.
