Kate Upton’s SI Cover May Be Too Risqué For Stands - What Do You Think?

Kate Upton has landed her third Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition cover, and the special edition will feature three collector's covers. Upton says she's proud to be part of a campaign that celebrates all kinds of female body types, but some people are pointing out a slight oversight.

Upton's personal trainer, Ben Bruno, said the model worked hard to get into shape this year for the swimsuit edition. “She worked so hard and did it the smart and healthy way, both in the gym and with her diet,” he reported on Instagram. "I’m very proud of her hard work and hope it can be inspiring to women who are hesitant to embrace strength training.”

Upton says she chose to focus on strength training as a new approach to fitness. “Changing my workout and focusing on weight training helped me do that. It helped me think about my body as a machine and less of something people can judge me on. People feel ashamed when they look bad one day, but it’s OK not to love yourself every second of every day. Appreciate what your body can do,” said the glamorous woman.

There is some controversy stirring, but it actually has nothing to do with how the Sports Illustrated model looks. Rather, it has to do with what she's wearing — or, more to the point, what she's not wearing: swimsuits.

Only in one of the images does Upton appear in a tiny bikini bottom. Instead of a bikini top, she's wearing a snug print jacket, left open to expose her cleavage.

On the other cover, it looks like she went to some unsuspecting grandma's home and snatched a macramé plant holder, then threw it over her neck and tucked the remaining end between her legs. The only thing actually covering Upton is her arm.

In the final cover, she drapes an arm over her bosom and stands on an angle with one leg slightly up to cover her private parts. This shoot didn't even attempt a makeshift swimsuit. She's just nude, adorned with necklaces and one of those belly dancer waist chains that are supposed to go over a skirt.

It is a real stretch of the imagination to call any of the outfits ‘swimsuits,’ but then, when has the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition ever really been about swimwear?
