An Open Letter To Kate Upton’s Curves

Hey there blondie,

First, I’d like to congratulate you on your second cover for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition! In case you haven’t heard, you and Tyra Banks are the only two who’ve done it back to back. Just like after you landed your first SI cover, people got critical about your body. Harsh words were spit out by haters left, right, and center. Buzzfeed found some tweets about you that are clearly ridiculous.

“Why is Kate Upton so fat…and she still makes it on the cover of SI”

“What is the obsession with Kate Upton? She’s a tall chick with bad legs and saggy boobs. Pancake status. Like a trash bag with water in it”

Clearly, you can never please everyone. And these people need to get their eyes checked. On the other end of the spectrum, you have your fans (me me me!). I’m not just talking about your fans who think you’re drop dead gorgeous, though. I’m talking about the ones who appreciate your healthy body and how you stand up for it. You’re not afraid to have a few cupcakes, french fries, or a burger once in a while. You’re about being real and healthy and that’s what us young women need to see more of.

“I’m not going to starve just to be thin. I want to enjoy life, and I can’t if I’m not eating and miserable.”

Your body isn’t the typical cookie cutter model shape, and that’s what we LOVE about you. You have a real body with meat on it. You’ve got curves. And you know how to rock that body! So here’s a thank you from all of us girls and guys. Thank you for being so proud of your body and thank you for another amazing Sports Illustrated cover!


A girl who’s friends thinks she’s too crazy obsessed with you.
