Success in Modeling and Beyond

She has been open about her early career challenges, including criticism for being “too curvy” after rising to fame with a Sports Illustrated cover in 2011. Despite facing backlash, Upton noted the industry’s positive change towards body diversity and credited her resilience for overcoming initial negativity to rebuild her confidence and success.

“I wish I had smaller boobs every day of my life as I love to wear spaghetti tops braless or go for the smallest bikini designs,” she told The Sun about her famous breasts.

“Every single day, I’m like, ‘Oh, man, it would be so much easier,’ especially if people didn’t constantly bring them up,” she added about her universally admired boobs.

She was born on June 10, 1992, in St. Joseph, Michigan, and is best known for modeling with Sports Illustrated and gracing the cover of the magazine’s swimsuit issue in 2012 and 2013.
