A Victoria’s Secret model has ended her stint with the company after being told to lose weight.
Despite being much leaner than the average woman, Heatherton was pushed to uphold the company’s outdated standards beauty, and she decided to leave Victoria’s Secret instead.
“I think every female should be happy in their own skin and if you see a curvy woman, that’s beautiful,” Heatherton said during the finale of American Idol.
She added that the point of modeling should be to share your natural beauty with the world instead of fitting a catalog’s depiction of beauty.
