Erin Heatherton: 'Wearing sport sweaters looks super-sexy'
Erin Heatherton's job involves posing in lingerie and skimpy bikinis but she feels just as "sexy" wearing sport jerseys.
The Sport Illustrated model, who is dating Australian musician Felix Bloxsom, reveals she loves watching sports with her family and wearing her favourite teams' jersey.
"My boyfriend loves the New York Knicks, but I'm a loyal Chicago Bulls fan. Movies and television are great but sports are stories of triumph and drama," she told Britain's InStyle magazine. "Also, wearing your boyfriend's sports sweater is super-sexy."
The 27-year-old model adds that she was always very athletic as a teenager and enjoyed playing basketball and running track. However, she never focused on improving her flexibly and really enjoys incorporating Ballet Beautiful into her routine now.
Erin, who previously dated Leonardo DiCaprio, works out almost every day for at least an hour, and finds the dance movements beneficial for her overall wellbeing.
"The movement and strengthening make me feel more graceful," smiled the blonde beauty, adding, "All the moves stem from the core, which is important for holding myself properly when I'm shooting all day or if I'm doing events in heels."
The model adds that she is "quite a connoisseur" of athletic and dancewear and likes to wear it all day long.
"When I first started going to classes in New York, I felt like I had to go really dressed up, but now I just throw on my workout gear and stay in it all day," she said.
Meanwhile, Erin has opened up about her struggles with body image in a candid Instagram post on Thursday (10March16).
"I was struggling with my body image and the pressures to fulfill (sic) the demands of perfectionism upon me," wrote Erin. "I am not perfect."
She goes on to say that she has been able to grow from the experience and hopes other women will support her in being a "catalyst for change".
"To create a channel for women to become the truest versions of themselves, along with me," she said.
