Too Fat for Wonderbra? Go Stuff Yourself!
Gorgeous underwear model Katie Green is taking her curves and laughing all the way to the top. A modeling sensation in the UK, 21-year-old Katie made headlines earlier this month when Wonderbra used the 5’10, size 10 stunner for their “real women” campaign and then shamelessly blasted her for being too fat. She’ll now debut as the new face and body of lingerie firm, Ultimo.
“I really didn’t know where my career was going to go after the depression of being told I was too fat,” she said after Wonderbra execs asked her to lose upwards of 30 pounds. “They got great publicity out of launching me as a ‘real’ curvy model. Then I was told that I had to lose lots of weight and become like all the other girls on the catwalk or I was finished. What a joke.”
Devastated by the demand, she quit the firm, telling friends she refused to sacrifice her health to look like a “bag of bones.”
“Katie’s figure is beautiful,” Ultimo boss Michelle Mone said. “I was appalled to hear that she was told she was too fat to model lingerie. She has an incredible shape and represents real women throughout the UK. She looks so sexy in our latest designs.”
WTF, Wonderbra? Since when is a size 10 “too fat”?! Does this woman look like someone who needs to lose 30 pounds?
