(NEW YORK) -- Victoria's Secret model Kylie Bisutti is done showing off her body for anyone other than her husband.
The 21-year-old winner of the 2009 Victoria's Secret Model Search competition dropped off the supermodel radar last year, declining to appear in December's televised Victoria's Secret Fashion Show.
Bisutti explained her decision then by tweeting, "For all of you that were looking for me in the Victoria's Secret runway show this year, I wasn't in it. I have decided not to model lingerie."
Bisutti went on to say her strong Christian beliefs were the reason. "My body should only be for my husband and it’s just a sacred thing," she recently told Fox News. "The more I was modeling lingerie -- and lingerie isn’t clothing -- I just started becoming more uncomfortable with it because of my faith."
"My marriage is very important and with divorce rates rising I want to do everything I can to protect my marriage and be respectful to my husband," she added.
Bisutti hasn't abandoned modeling altogether, however. She recently appeared with Jennifer Lopez in a Kohl's commercial for Lopez's clothing line.
