    The Before and After Files #8

    Not only did they adjust my shirt to change the color and remove my underarm, they gave my chest some oomph as well. I think that’s pretty funny, considering that I was a body double for Victoria’s Secret models!

    If photographers feel the need to add to MY breasts, I can only imagine how teenage girls must feel when they look at magazine ads. Remember…those perfect breasts on the model are probably computer enhanced!

    See the full picture here!

    Do you think editors should stop airbrushing models in their magazines?

    Nicole Weider is a Salem, Oregon native who moved to Los Angeles and quickly found success as a fashion model at the age of 17. Today, Nicole is an active wife, mom, producer, actress and author and has made it her mission to share her personal story, the bright moments and the challenges, with young women around the world.


    1. All the Victoria’s secret models are really airbrushed. I used to want to look like them but realized that their standard of beauty isn’t real, it’s enhanced by a computer. This is really eye-opening to read, I appreciate it. All my friends need to look at this too because some are struggling with eating disorders and one of my best friend’s wants a boob job and I keep telling her she doesn’t need one. its sad that they are telling girls to look like this!! 🙁

    2. The breast thing is an issue because I’m someone who has a tinier waste than I do breasts. I always feel pressured like mine are supposed to be smaller, and a lot of cute clothes don’t form to me properly… Also I don’t know why your shirt color had to be changed, it looks weird when it’s bright turquoise.. And the arm thing reminds me completely how magazines trick us.

    3. wow, i cant believe they do that, i mean so many women are beautiful just the way they are! i understand putting on makeup, but airbrushing? that is them saying the women arent beautiful and they need to make them pretty. idk, thats how i see it…

    4. I think they shouldn’t alter your breasts. I am very tall and lanky so I have close to nothing breasts. But I also like it better when people aren’t airbrushed. When you have smile lines and laugh lines it makes you look like you know how to live life.
      You look great:)

    5. I would never want to be a model because it seems like it would hurt that they would always keep “fixing you”. I’m so glad that you realize that the editing is ridiculous and you’re going further to showing girls the truth as well. You are even more beautiful without all that fancy editing 🙂

      • You looked perfect before you got all edited, I think that breast issue is a pretty big one, I have like, nothing, and I am a bigger girl so … Yeah, I think I have looked at magazines and thought about wanting bigger breasts but a smaller everything else, but its scary to see how much they edit this stuff! The stuff some girls want to look like is just simply artificial.

    6. Ugh. I hate photoshop. I have a eating disorder, and I’m really struggling with it. I have super low self esteem and photoshop doesn’t help. Thanks for posting these images! I’ve needed to see them! BTW- you are beautiful without photoshop!
