Feb 20th 2006 3:22PM I think that Molly Sims is portrayed very beautifully in this photo, and to echo what another person said, she chose to do this, it isn't like she was forced. I doubt that this was taken to try to degrade women in any way, it is showing how perfect the female body is, and can be. The bikini is just an adornment, albeit an expensive one...but money like that is spent by many designers! As far as the "hair" situation goes, there are alot of women who get waxes. If you watched the SI special, she says right on there that "this is why bikini waxes are done!" Also, if you notice most of the blogs that are talking negatively about the photo, are women. It is just plain jealousy. More power to the women who are confident enough in themselves to appreciate beauty, and sensuality!
