I don’t see whats so great about this girl?! Yes, her breasts are nice and her face is cute but as a total package she’s definitely nothing to write home about. She has no hips, no a– and for a swimsuit model she’s a little on the chunky side. I don’t know if you girls remember that Sports Illustrated model search reality show that was on TV a few years back but the way those judges were TEARING into those models (many of whom looked WAY better than Kate) I’m very surprised Kate was chosen to model for SI once… Read more »

wow my comment sounds mean. What I meant was: I’m sitting here next to my dad and I’m seeing a photo of a girl my age, topless on the cover of a magazine. Just imagining what my parents would feel if I was in that situation gives me the shivers

no you’re being nice, i mean the first one was bad enough, borderline penthouse with the barely there panties, but this one, ew, she looks bloated and inflated, like she drank 5 kegs before the shoot. i just think she’s trashy

She looks like she’s gained weight since last year. You can see it on her face, b❆❆bs and stomach… even thighs a little bit.

cklowds96
Guest
cklowds96

i think part of the reason it may look as if she’s gained is because of the posing. Yes she is definitely top heavy, but it to me it just looks like she is slumped over more so she has less ab definition in the second cover.

MissMarilyn

i agree… i don’t remember them ever looking THAT big even with the weight gain. I don’t understand. Is it photoshop or just the way they made her pose?

Because if Sports Illustrated photoshopped Kate’s b❆❆bs to be bigger than they need to be kicked in the head. Her b❆❆bs are pretty much why she is so well-known and are clearly pretty popular at their actual size. Why you would need to change that I don’t know.

Mara

The constant use of the word “ignorant” is getting tiresome.
ignorance, -n, lack of knowledge, information, or education
What does that have to do with someone finding Kate Upton’s b❆❆bs too big? It’s called an opinion. Aesthetic judgements are not based on knowledge. If you like them or not, calling someone ignorant for having them makes YOU sound ignorant.

Fielding
Guest
Fielding

I believe that ‘ignorance’ was used in the sense that, any time a girl has big b####, ‘saggy’ is trotted out as the standard insult.

Also, “ignorant” as in – people have become so accustomed to fake t–s that a real pair are automatically deemed ‘saggy’.

It’s like a before and after comparison. She looked like she was in much better shape last year than this year. I think both look horrible though and I don’t like her. She’s too ordinary. She has this Anna-Nicole smith look to her. I wish these types of magazines would stop and women would stop thinking it’s such a huge achievement to be on the cover or anywhere in the magazine.

They’re still trying to make her happen huh? It’s sad but all people (men especially) see when you have b❆❆bs that big, is B####. No offense to those with larger chests but it’s true. They don’t see you as a person with thoughts

bretzel

I don’t think they’re trying to make her happen, it sounds like an absurd business decision. She just sells.

Also, I’m a 32E and as much as I admit people will stare if I “expose” them by wearing anything tight or showing some cleavage, I usually just cover them, dress in a way that hides them, and people do seem to listen to what I have to say. If you want to make people forget about them, you can.
Then some girls complain but won’t make a choice between showing off their assets and getting the right kind of attention.

Robin

I think that if people don’t take you seriously because of your cleavage, they are the one that need to change, not you.

Stephanie

Very much agreed, Robin. You shouldn’t dress according to other people’s standards just for their brains to be mature and take you seriously.

Laci Green covers this subject amazingly well on her YouTube video “Comments about my BODY” in which she states how ridiculous it is for people to tell her ‘I can’t take you seriously because of your breasts and that’s why you should cover them up”

idk, common sense

annabanana
Guest
annabanana
well as a person who has had this happen to them, when you find people staring at your breasts instead of your face, yes you want to cover them up. The truth is, everyone is going to keep staring at your breasts if you don’t, whether they “should” be staring or not. So dressing modestly is the most effective way to avoid the problem. Period. You can make some ethical/moral argument about how it SHOULDN’T be that way, but that is not going to change how it actually is. And it is an unpleasant enough experience that I feel compelled… Read more »

annabanana, see i agree with you to a certain extent, but in some cases “covering up” can result in looking matronly and frumpy. which at my age (20 years-old) is one of the last things i want. having large breasts and covering them up can sometimes make them look even bigger, and not in an attractive way, because it makes you look heavier overall. which is why i usually stay away from turtlenecks, even though i love them with certain outfits.so yes, when i feel fed up and annoyed with that kind of attention, i will do up the top… Read more »

I find calling them out on it to be more effective. Most people get embarrassed when you point out that you know they are staring and then they feel bad. Some still don’t care but then at least you know they aren’t worth your time.

@annabanana

Even if you cover up, if you have big b❆❆bs it doesn’t change a damn thing. One day I was at the shopping mall wearing a simple t-shirt and some jeans, and still some dudes beside me told loud enough to let me hear: “What a rack!”, so it’s unnerving when people say “If you cover up it doesn’t happen”, because it’s pure bulls— <3

bretzel
Guest
bretzel

Sadly I was going to reply the same as annabanana. I wish people were a certain way, yet there’s only so much I can do about it. In theory I agree I should maybe try and change people’s attitude around me. But in practice it would make it something I’m about and I just don’t care enough.

annabanana
Guest
annabanana

well my breasts are not extremely large, just decently sized, so I think that changes my experience- meaning when I cover up, I dont really get people staring too much (and it doesn’t necessarily make me look matronly either, unless I wear the totally wrong shirt). If you have very very large breasts I’m sure it doesn’t make as much of a difference whether you cover or not. and aafje- unfortunately not all of us are that brave! I wish I was haha 😉

Cilla B

Big b❆❆bs are quite the burden indeed. My b❆❆bs used to be huge and people felt as if it was okay to make jokes about them or even touch them. But if you really want people to look at you, you can either cover them up or just tell them straight up that they are not being polite. Just make sure that you don’t end up thinking that every guy only looks at your b####, because sometimes thats between the ears.

Aafje

I have large b❆❆bs and I have found that as long as you act like an intelligent person most people still treat you respectfully (of course there are always some assholes…)

Observer

Um..obviously she HAS happened, or we wouldn’t see so much of her. Sheesh, people need to think a little before they type. 2 SI covers and you really think someone’s TRYING to make her happen?
Why didn’t Candice get the cover instead? Hell, most of her fans actually believe she has an a$$ and b####. And Candice has clearly “happened” as well.
Kate’s PR is just an oversexualized disaster, and I think she does better modelling regular clothes because she then represents a different body type compared to contemporary models, and that’s where her focus should be.

Fielding
Guest
Fielding

I also think that she would have lost weight if SI had said ‘girl you are too fat, lose 20lbs before next season.’

No, Kate is ‘fat’ for a reason. It makes her b❆❆bs bigger, and that’s what sells. Don’t think for a moment that her weight is not a discussion with clients and her agency. If she is ‘chubby’ right now ITS ON PURPOSE.

serena
Guest
serena

I don’t think she’s chubby, just very top-heavy. But if you look at candids from this shoot (one is posted below) you will see SI clearly photoshopped her for the cover by slimming her midsection quite a bit. So yes Kate’s best asset is big b❆❆bs and that’s why she’s hired. But body-wise she’s pushing it; nothing that Photoshop can’t handle for now but she can’t gain anymore. In Hollywood there is always another busty bubbly blonde waiting in the wings!

MissMarilyn
Member
MissMarilyn

lets be honest; Kate is not fat. Yes she does have a chubbier mid-section and bigger b❆❆bs than we’re probably all used to seeing but if you look at all of her body fat it certainly does not put her in the overweight range. if her body fat were more evenly distributed she would not look chubby at all; and if you look at her legs and arms they are always very slender.

just because she carries most of her weight in her midsection/breasts does not mean she’s fat.

Fielding
Guest
Fielding

At her skinniest, Kim Kardashian probably carries more extra pounds than Kate in her a– and thighs. But no one complains about Kim b/c she has the magical *small waist*.

serena

Lol Fielding you’re either joking or very oblivious. Kim K is easily the most hated person on this site and everyone calls her fat and makes fun of her giant butt and thick body – I admit I do too. You’re so melodramatic when it comes to Kate Upton, I’m sure the poor wittle heiress/bikini model will be ok.

Yes, of course, she will be fine.

Haha well I’m sure you realize entire site is about objectifying women’s bodies! Hey I used to deny it but that’s the reality and honestly I’m fine with it. I try to not be harsh and find a positive quality in everyone, but at the end of the day I’m objectifying like everyone else… 🙂

Fielding
Guest
Fielding

@serena

yes, but there are different kinds of objectification

anyways, if women are going to be objectifying other women, it’s also kind of hypocritical to then complain that those women are ‘objecitfying’ themselves 😛

also, a lot of the women here engage in sl** shaming, which I addressed near the end of the comments section.

I don’t agree with this comment and I don’t think it’s really reasonable to make such sweeping generalizations. Even if this statement were true, however, why should I care how men or any other person perceives me? I know I am an intelligent woman and someone else thinking otherwise because of the size of my breasts is not going to change that or make think any less of myself.

No, I really don’t think it is. As a size 2-4 with a 26 inch waist, I have to say that I really think her waist is larger than mine. It might’ve been 25 inches last year, but she’s definitely gained weight around the midsection.

artemis
Guest

wow, her midsection looks HUGE in that pic :/ and it sticks out x_x my bf’s and a lot of guys(without 6 packs) midsections would look better on a girl than hers lol
oh yeah, definitely closer to 35(which i guess it’s also her hip size). her lower hips are smaller and her butt is flat so ya, pretty equal

her midsection is not even masculine (maybe then i’d find it attractive in a weird way…). it’s just too wide.

Daniela

I understand that it may sound like an exaggeration to you, but I truly honestly think she is fat. Not even chubby or “soft”, just fat for my standards (which are not only influenced by models/actresses I see in the media but also by the people I see walking down the street every day. Kate is way above the weight of the average woman I see on my daily life and she certainly doesn´t look healthy to me).

And usually, ‘classy’ refrain from calling other girls ‘trashy’ even if they consider them to behave like it. I dont love Kate Upton, but all i can say is Kudos man. And even tho there’s the cat daddy deal and everything she’s endorsed lately, she has WITHOUT a doubt handled criticism like a LADY. What that VS whats-her-position-model-scouter-whatever said about her was completely ridiculous, because one thing is saying that a certain model doesnt fit the aesthetic you are looking for in the company you represent, but her statement was something Regina George would have written in the burn book.… Read more »

I used to have b❆❆bs like her, they don’t at all look pretty in real life and since I have a broad back they made me look a bit manly even.

In the first pic her b❆❆bs look really weird, the tops of them are so high they look like they’re not even attached to her pectoralis muscles. But no worries, I’m sure they’re going to hang down to her hips in 10 years, they’re so saggy already…

The magazine used to be beautiful and I find this comment sexist and prudish. Elle Macpherson, Paulina Porizikova, Tyra Banks. These girls were top models. Yes the magazine is cheap and tacky now, Bar, Kate, but it wasn’t always. Posing in a swimsuit isn’t inherently tacky, it depends on the photographer and model.

WTH? SI has never been “classy.” Are you trying to be funny? I agree 100% with Gemma, it ain’t no damn high brow art exhibition, the SI cover models have always flaunted T&A in some way or another. And so long as the target audience (men) doesn’t change, they’ll continue to do so. Lol to think in terms of “class” regarding how women’s bodies are portrayed in men’s magazines it just silly and naive imo.

This always gets brought up on Kate Upton posts. It’s not that people hate big breasts or women with big breasts, it’s the fact that they feel that she is very average aside from 1-2 features, and is succeeding it in a market where generally you need to have the whole package. After seeing her candids of this photoshoot, I was very surprised that she made a cover. I mean, big b❆❆bs are rarer than small b####, and yes GENERALLY SPEAKING, men like larger breasts, but they’re not that uncommon either. Meaning, I think there are better looking women with… Read more »

Guest

IDK, in this particular post, a lot of the negativity was boob-orientated. As an E-cup owner, it’s disenheartening to hear the word “ridiculous” and “too big” used to describe big b####.
Anyway, surely her success is good news for us average plebs? Although, since she mainly models for straight men (who obviously don’t find her boring), not women, why is everyone so annoyed by her? I just don’t get it. She’s hot. She’s distinguishable. Men like her. The annoyance is unjustified, IMO.

Fielding

She does not deserve success b/c she has the wrong body type. Oh, and she isn’t ‘classy’ apparently.

Naressa Khan

Yeah I agree with you. Shouldn’t we be happy that someone so called average looking is living it out and representing the rest of the average Janes in the world?

Good for her.

As for her shape. It’s not an unfortunate shape. A woman with an apple shape can look her best, in her own way. Kate just needs to tone up, that’s all.

Erica

It’s not just on Kate Upton posts that there are a lot of seemingly anti big-boob comments (Christina Hendricks gets a lot too). I personally don’t find Kate very attractive, but the size of her b❆❆bs has nothing to do with that. I’m busty and I definitely feel there are a lot of comments on this site that are negative about big b❆❆bs – I’ve read plenty before saying they would hate to have big b❆❆bs because of the sag, describing normal looking larger breasts as saggy and sometimes just using language that is disparaging (‘they’ll be on her knees… Read more »

Yes Erica, how awful for people to be saying mean things about big b❆❆bs because as you say, you are busty yourself so it offends you.

I am one of the people who criticize Kate a lot. But it is not because of her b❆❆bs (I do think they are saggy and mive too much on the runway but I have no problem with big b❆❆bs per se). I find it ridiculus that prople call her a model. She has no model-like characteristic.

She’s a pin-up, that’s a type of model. And if you look at models throughout history, you will find that what is considered desirable changes. The 1970s saw such HEFFERS as Christie Brinkley and Cherly Tiegs. They were OMG MORBIDLY OBESE and plain by todays standards. But in those days, sexy pin-up was in. Back in the 1950s, the sexless, ‘elegant’ looking girls were popular. For the last 10+ years or so, sexless has been in. kate upton is the return of the more buxom, sexy pin-up model. She’s not HF, but she’s definitely popular amongst people who like OMG… Read more »

I like the whole antartica/ snow bunny theme, its a nice departure from the tropical shoots they do all the time. I think Irina shayk would have looked way better On the cover, but Kate looks cute too. Not sure if she warrants two covers in a row though. The jacket covers up her lack of waist and emphasizes her b####, which I’m pretty sure is the look they are going for.

She’s very pretty but she needs to stop taking her clothes off to feel worthy I feel like they only hire her to take off her clothes her face is classier than the way they photograph her body they make her b❆❆bs look giant and the smallest under wear I have ever seen.

mishya

I agree! She has a very pretty face, and a beautiful healthy body, but she always seems so oversexualized. Obviously, the fact that she is quite busty will always show, even in her classier shoots, but I feel she is always stuffed into these tiny, ill-fitting bikinis for men’s magazines. It seems almost dehumanizing and doesn’t do her justice as a model.

Last thing I want to see on a swimsuit cover is a ski jacket. Show me the bikini!!

Also, I think it would be a sexier photo if her b❆❆bs were pushed together a little less. They’ve crossed the line into cartoonish here.

So airbrushed… In the candid photos from that photoshoot (the untouched ones), she was bigger. She’s a pretty girl with a healthy looking body, but she’s also overrated and generally she looks better in classier/more high fashion photoshoots.

I can´t believe I am the first person to comment on how fat she is. All I can see in that pic (beside the b####) is her terrible stomach and huuuge thighs. A terrible picture and a terrible “model”.

Agreed 🙂 You said exactly what I’ve been thinking! I was just worried people would get angry if I said it – good on you 🙂 My agency would consider her too big for this type of work.

It’s not just you guys. To me, she actually looks fat here.

I agree, she looks really bloated to me in the cover shot as well, her stomach looks terrible 🙁 I can’t believe they used this shot on the fromt of the magazine!

Thank you girls, I was beginning to worry my standards were too messed up. Actually I first saw this picture because my boyfriend showed it to me saying that he couldn´t believe how fat this girl was.

Out of curiosity, do you consider Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian to be ‘fat’.

I would say that both of those two have been heavier than kate – but it goes on their behind’s and their thighs – so is easily hidden.

Even 2 extra lbs is super obvious if all of it goes on one’s stomach.

Daniela
Guest

I definetely think Kim Kardashian is fat. Jennifer Lopez is far from being skinny but at least in the last couple of years she has put a lot of effort in her body and is looking fit and not flabby. Kate has the most unfortunate body shape and doesn’t put any effort in her body, she could look decent (similar to Brooklyn Decker) if she lost 30 pounds and started exercising.

Fielding

And she is not putting effort into her body. Or so it seems

Loads of money, millions of dollars, are riding on Kate’s success. If her weight was a problem she would have been taken aside and told ‘shape up or no more jobs.’

Her ‘morbid obesity’ is BY DESIGN.

I wouldn’t call her fat, but when I saw the cover photo, my first thought was definitely – “wow, she’s gotten chubby!” I actually thought she looked pretty chubby and horrible in the Mercedes Super Bowl ad as well.

I used to think she was sexy, but I’m starting to actually not like her body, and I only ever thought her face was pretty (which pretty does not warrant a supermodel, sorry!).

Any other girls find it demeaning that instead of putting an actual female athlete (many of them have amazing bodies by the way) on the cover of a “sports” magazine, they just choose the model with the biggest breasts they can find? While there is absolutely nothing wrong with Kate Upton’s body or other women with her body type, it would be more empowering to see an actual athlete on these covers, one with a body that has been worked hard for and that represents the strength women are capable of. Strong women can be sexy women too. Shaking my… Read more »

…it’s the swimsuit issue…Sports Illustrated has every other issue of the year to put female athletes on its cover. yet they rarely do, but when they DO it’s for something related to the sport they play rather than to prance around in bikinis (which would be even more demeaning imo) and personally, i prefer it that way. i’d rather (scarcely) being respected by what they do, than being turned into “snow bunnies”. this issue is a “tradition” now and they make quite a pretty penny off of it. i doubt it would make as much bank off of female athletes… Read more »

Well, to my knowledge, there is an average of one female on the cover of sports illustrated per year. One. That fact might be excusable if Sports Illustrated was published once a month, but this is a weekly magazine. Out of the 56 annual cover subjects, less than 2% are females– excluding the two bikini issues, obviously, since those are the only two times a female is guaranteed the cover slot. The magazine doesn’t specify itself as an analyst of solely male athletes’ performances, but the cover says otherwise. If you receive the magazine weekly (like I do), you’ll see… Read more »

i agree that it’s awful and sexist. i just don’t feel like the solution to this is to have female athletes model in the swimsuit issue. it’s a swimsuit model’s job to look sexy in a bikini and a female athlete’s job to excel at whatever sport it is that she participates in. the swimsuit issue is pretty much synonymous with sex nowadays and making female athletes the models will just make people take them even less seriously.

I remember reading an essay by John Steinbeck back in high school where he complained about how Americans had taken to sexualizing child-like women (and technically blond hair was considered a youthful feature although at this point it is so prevalent in mature women that I doubt that any man associates it with youth anymore) with overdeveloped breasts. At the time, I thought he was being kind of a grouchy old man, but I think he’d be rolling in his grave if he saw Kate Upton.

Is anyone else disturbed by how baby-ish her face is?

Ana

And she still is very young IMO, to be doing these kind of shoots.

I just cannot like her. Her b❆❆bs are her livelihood, which is annoying. She doesn’t have an amazing body to go with them and her face is meh, in my opinion. I can see that now that she’s getting so much work, she has obviously decided she doesn’t need to exercise as much or at all. For a sports magazine cover, I’d expect a more “fit” body.

violet

Oh, her face…it’s just not striking at all. I’m trying to be kind 🙂 lol her face is meh..her body is not extraordinary. Her b❆❆bs are huge but there are more beautiful “curvy” girls with large breasts so what is the obsession with this girl? I seriously don’t get it.

Am I the only one who gets unreasonably annoyed when tabloids post “no make up pictures” where the person is obviously wearing make up. She has heavy eyeliner on. Do they just assume we are blind or don’t understand what make up is?

I find it annoying when people say it’s “annoying” that her breasts are her livelihood. Yet everyone is totally fine with other models who are famous for the same bikini shoots with their asses pushed out and their b❆❆bs padded to twice their normal size. I mean, come on. everyone says if they want big boobed bikini models they should find someone who doesn’t need to stuff their bra. Well here she is. Pardon her if the rest of her body isn’t up to your “standards”. FYI all models rest on their physical assets and Kate is no different. If… Read more »

I know “Polar Bare” was supposed to be a pun on Antarctica, but Polar bears do not live in Antarctica, they live in the Arctic! Penguins live in Antarctica. As for Kate – putting her on “Sports Illustrated” is surely a joke? I can’t imagine her even running a mile without those knockers flopping around like crazy – hey maybe that will be her next hit video! They say work with what you’ve got and Kate has surely mastered that skill.

Aww Aafje that must have hurt! My sister is a DD and she used to be so uncomfortable running without a supportive bra. Kate looks bigger than that, maybe an E or F? Btw yay for field hockey players! 🙂

See that model “Hannah Davis” behind Kate? She is cute, I loved her in the Ralph Lauren ads. Ver.sus should feature Hannah Davis on this site instead of certain overexposed models.

For a woman who supposably has “all-natural b####” (lolz), the magazine sure has a way of making them look fake.
Why are they bigger than her head? She looks like a bunch of grapes. Maybe each one of her b❆❆bs should have a hat as well.
