Kate Upton ''loves'' her body.

The 20-year-old swimwear model has blasted commentators who pass judgement on her curvaceous figure and insists she is comfortable in her own skin.

She takes great pride in the fact her voluptuous physique is inspiring women around the world to feel better about their own figures.

Speaking in the June edition of Vogue magazine, she said: ''The things that they're rejecting are things that I can't change. I can't change my bra size. They're natural! I can work out and I can stay healthy and motivated, but I can't change some things.

''I really just live my life. I love my body. It's what God gave me! I feel confident with myself, and if that inspires other women to feel confident with their bodies, great.''

Kate - who was recently romantically linked to P. Diddy after the pair were spotted on a night out together in Miami - also defended her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit shoots and says she worked hard to make it into the pages of the iconic magazine.

She added: ''I always had career goals. And I figured out a path I wanted to take to accomplish those goals. If that meant calling the best modelling agency in the world, that's what it meant.''

When she's not busy working, the blonde beauty enjoys browsing social media and finds herself drawn to its ''authenticity''.

She explained: ''It's just me sharing my life, I like it if it's authentic and in the moment and happening. Growing up, I didn't buy the magazines that had models on the covers, because I didn't know them. So I think it kind of gives me, as a model, a personality that people can connect with.''
