    Good for her! I am so pleased to see a beautiful young woman choosing moral values over money and fame.

    Don't make money off of your decision, and I would respect it more.

    "I believe that the types of images I took when I was a lingerie model brought a lot of men into temptation", stated Kylie Bisutti. I am genuinely shocked that someone has said this out loud. Talk about a great role model for personal responsibility - Kylie is it!

    I am very impressed. It takes a lot of conviction and courage to refuse the money and fame that comes from modeling for Victoria's Secret. Her husband is a very lucky man.

    @Say What?
    The purity in one's life isn't found in one's overt actions but in the heart. Some people hide to find purity, some are hiding impurity, some people appear pure but have evil intent and some people are just pure evil (thankfully very, very few).
    The real question is to ask our selves....which are we.

    Re. Say What?. So what is your point?

    In my mind, the word "seduction" fits better with Victoria than "secret". What's so secret about an open display of what's falsely called "beauty"? Kelly Bisutti has discovered true beauty, which bears no resemblance to the provocative displays on the runway.
    I remember some Navajo ladies pantomiming the fashion divas for a couple of LDS Missionaries in an unflattering demonstration of "moves", then teaching the pair about "Hozho", a Navajo word we often translate as "beauty". But "hozho" has a deeper sense of living one's life in a joyful, harmonious, even spiritual manner--"walking in beauty", somewhat related to the Christian view of walking the straight and narrow. (That's an oversimplification, but readers should get the idea.)
    I hope Ms. Bistutti sticks with her message and her commitment to being a role model. It's sorely needed when young girls and especially young boys are surrounded by models of another sort.

    A nun leads an even more pure life.

    An excellent and rare example of someone putting God and her marriage first.

    Mrs. Bisutti is correct: The images that were taken of her can lead men into temptation and even porn addiction. Before the internet, "porn" came in the guise of the SI Swimsuit Issue, Sears Catalog, etc. These images can lead to more and more graphic ones as the addiction takes over.

    I congratulate her on taking a stand; not only for her faith and marriage, but for speaking Truth about the over-sexualization of our country...

    What a great example to young women of faith and virtue! As a father of a ten year old girl who even at that young age is constantly bombarded by worldly messages of immorality and promiscuity I find it very refreshing that some women are willing to stand up for virtue and chastity, even if it means sacrificing their careers. That takes a lot of courage and faith to do something like that, and I applaud her and thank her for standing up for her beliefs, and will support her in any way that I can. If she is hired to be a model or spokesperson for a family oriented company I will support that company.

    An intelligent young adult taking responsibility for the effect her work has on her fellow human beings... she is a role model of us all.

    Wow someone who can see the light and not the money. Good for her. I have the most respect for her and her decsion. Wish more would stand for what the right. She will be a much better example for little girls including mine.
