Answering a Reader Question #360
First off I want to thank you for all the information you put out here, it is great to have all these questions answered. I was wondering about photoshop though with all the articles going on lately, do the VS angels have "real curves" or do they photoshop them in? Im a 34B and would love to transfer over from IMG to Elite/Ford but curious if my chest is big enough?haha I was to embarrassed to ask that in person:) Thanks!! - Julieann
Hi, Julieann! You're very welcome, I'm happy to have you as a reader! :-)
VS angels have real curves BUT there is a lot of Photoshop magic involved in the final images. Airbrushing so that their skin appears flawless and without blemishes (and even adding a bit of toning/ab lines) is one of the most common photography retouching tricks that happens with VS.
However, there are others. You definitely don't have to worry about your chest size because the VS models aren't all naturally big C or D cups. To make their cleavage appear more "enhanced," the bras the VS models wear during their shoots are actually one size smaller than their real size--hence, the major cleavage. Being that the bras are already super padded and have push-up underwires, wearing a smaller size gives their chests that extra oopmh...literally! For their regular clothing that is sold in the catalogs, the items are pinned in the back or sized to be much smaller so that they fit the models perfectly. That's why most VS clothing people order never fit them right or look the same as it does in the catalog.
So believe me when I say you can't always believe what you see in the VS photos. Remember, modeling is about selling the product and creating an ideal illusion. Nothing is ever what it seems.
