Sofia Vergara Bathing Suit Photos Give Real Women a Bad Name

Sofia Vergara is an absolutely smokin' hot mama who plays a trophy wife for good reason on Modern Family, but don't go getting any ideas about calling her a "real woman."

It seems like whenever hot bathing suit photos are released of a star like Vergara, everyone starts freaking out over "real women" and how curves are in. Well, I have news for most women: the likelihood of looking like Vergara is just about as high as looking like Kelly Ripa in her size 0s or Gwyneth Paltrow, whose starvation diet could make you light-headed. Her body isn't any more "real" or attainable for every woman than theirs, sorry to say.

This whole notion that there is one kind of body that "real-life" women have (curvy) and one that stars have (super thin) is kind of laughable. Vergara embodies what "curvy" truly means, and ladies, her body is just as impossible as Gwyneth's. Maybe even harder. We can all starve ourselves, but those DDs don't grow on trees.


At 38 and as the mother of a teenager, she is hot, hot, hot. But the notion that she is some kind of poster girl for "real women" is kind of amusing. Go to the grocery store if you don't believe me. Then report back. How many women did you see who look like Vergara? At my Whole Foods, I would be a lot more likely to see a tall willow-y "yummy mummy" in her yoga pants than I would someone as voluptuous and gorgeous as Vergara.

She looks incredible, but don't mistake that for attainable. It's unclear when "curvy" became a euphemism for overweight, but they aren't the same thing. Many actresses are curvy without being fat and then there are people who are overweight without being curvy.

Vergara is a gorgeous, curvy actress whose body looks incredible in one-pieces, bikinis, and dresses. Most of us will never even come close to looking like her. The body of a "real woman"? I think not.

Do you think Vergara looks like a "real woman"?
