It’s not easy modelling for Victoria’s Secret.

The women have to diet and exercise very intensely before the annual fashion show…and they also sometimes have to roll around in the sun during a bikini shoot, which can be downright exhausting, as PINK models Devon Windsor and Rachel Hilbert recently told PopSugar.

“After shoots we’re usually pretty exhausted,” Windsor told the women’s website.”Especially after a beach shoot — the sun wears you out.”
