If you are female and you haven't actually read the thread, I recommend doing so.
The majority of us haven't said she was "fat" a few people have but they are probably 5'4" dudes that weight 130lbs themselves... so relatively, she is.
But this all started because I said I'd rather see women that are actually fit and clearly work out wearing swimsuits than women who need to be photoshopped to look like they do.
I don't think that Kate Upton is fat. I know a lot of women her size. But I do know a lot of women who also have her same frame that have amazingly toned asses. My sister is one of them. She surfs almost every day and runs marathons as a hobby.
I do think she has a beautiful face and if she truly did work on her body to tone things up yeah, she would absolutely deserver her spot. Its just when you see her in her real life photos her body isn't impressive.
In no way were most of us trying to judge other women. We're talking about a woman who gets paid to look beautiful and as she gets older and gains more weight, things just get photoshopped more. And the fact that she claims she's 120 - 130lbs at 5'10" is just promoting to the world that she thinks that's what a healthy size for a woman who looks like her is, which is also entirely unrealistic considering that's my weight and I'm 5'7" and obviously small framed. There are just so many things wrong with promoting a "real woman" and manipulating every aspect about it. At least we all know that thin super models are unrealistic.
