Victoria’s Secret uses model with stretchies – world doesn’t implode

Nothing send us on a diet and exercise guilt-trip quicker than clapping eyes on a parade of Victoria's Secret Angels.

And while we love nothing more than tuning into the annual fashion show, it takes a lot of positive thinking and frantic whatsapping with the girls to remember that these women are paid to look… well… as close to perfect as possible.

Considering this, it's heartening to see that the company – which uses some of the most beautiful women in the world to promote their lines – have released images that reminds us that these women also rock the same marks and bumps as the rest of us.

After the brand shared behind-the-scenes snaps of Jasmine Tookes modelling their Fantasy Bra during the week, the public realised that Jasmine rocked – wait for it – the same stretchmarks as the rest of us, and the company hadn't digitally removed them!

We know – we had to have a quick sit-down too.

Jasmine – the first black woman to model the Fantasy Bra in nine years – looked nothing short of breathtaking in the shots, and the marks on her bum did NOTHING to detract from that.

Whether the move was an intentional one on behalf of the brand or not is unknown, but that hasn't stopped fans of the model taking to social media to congratulate her for "proudly showing off her stretch marks".

Now, let us all take a moment to salivate over that underwear set.
