Despite the fact that Kate Upton has been featured on the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover three times, she still struggles to deal with her bikini body.

“I’m still not confident in a bathing suit!” Upton told Yahoo Style. “That’s why you eat healthy and work out, to feel your best.”

“You always have struggles. It’s not like I always feel my best. Everybody has moments where they don’t feel confident in a bikini. It’s what we’re striving for: self-love. We work our way up. When I don’t feel my best, that’s OK,” the swimsuit model said.

The 24-year-old blonde admitted that the fashion world has caused her to approach weight differently, but she’s no slave to the scale and apparently doesn’t even own one.

“Honestly, because coming from the fashion world, weight — when I first started modeling — was very important. How much you weighed, how much you needed to lose, whatever it was,” Upton explained.

“I’m not trying to be fit for a number on a scale. Whenever I’m happiest, I try to maintain that. I don’t need a number.”

Sure certainly seems to be confident in these swimsuits.
