The curvy swimsuit model also has fellow models defending the crude criticism about her weight by some celebrity watchers.

Alyssa Miller said that everyone has got to stop being hyper-critical of women.

Chrissy Teigen added that we should learn to embrace all body types.

"I don't think people realize we read everything," she said.

Meanwhile, it has been revealed that Upton caught frostbite while posing topless fore the photos that would eventually be a part of her cover shoot.

The curvy 20-year-old model claims her body began shutting down from the cold after a sexy photoshoot in the Antarctic, which saw her cavorting around semi-nude in extreme temperatures of up to -20°C for Sports Illustrated's swimsuit issue.

She confessed during an appearance on the 'Today' show: "It was freezing. I had frostbite when I came back. I was worried about my body. I was losing hearing and eyesight as my body was working so hard to stay warm. My mom said, 'I told you not to go there.'

"My body was shutting down, it was working so hard to keep warm. I could only do 10 frames before I couldn't take it anymore, and everyone came with a blanket or coat and I even got this huge pink sleeping bag to keep me warm. That is the only way I could do it."

Kate - who was named one of the sexiest women of the millennium by GQ magazine - has posed for Sports Illustrated a number of times, and the raunchy shoot marked the buxom blonde's second front cover for the infamous swimsuit edition.

She said: "Sports Illustrated really launched my career and I have a lot to thank them for."
