Kate Stoltzfus has stripped down for the new issue of Maxim.

The 'Breaking Amish' star has traded her demure bonnet for a blue bustier and black shorts in the pages of the men's magazine, a radical departure from her prim and proper Amish lifestyle in Pennsylvania.

The reality TV series, which debuted on TLC last September, follows a group of youngsters trying to break free of their traditional lives and exploring a more modern lifestyle in New York City, before deciding whether they want to return to their Amish faith.

The aspiring model told Maxim: ''There are definitely a lot of Amish women who have great bodies, because they work hard. They also eat really healthy, since they grow their own food. That's one big thing I miss about home, being able to garden and take care of plants.''

The 22-year-old brunette now has some modelling experience under her belt and is gradually getting accustomed to the idea of flashing her flesh in photoshoots.

Kate explained: ''Before I had even signed a contract with a modelling agency, I did a test shoot to see if I could photograph well, and the first outfit they put me in was a bathing suit! I have to admit it was a little intimidating, but now I enjoy doing it.''

However, the reality star still maintains some of her religion's more traditional values, especially when it comes to boys.

She added: ''A guy would have to prove himself to me before I'd bake him something special, like my peanut butter blossoms. Most of the time I just make them for my roommates and me.''

Kate has since been shunned by her family for opting not to return to the Amish way of life, which preaches simple living, plain dress, and reluctance to adopt most conveniences of modern technology.
