Victoria Beckham's 'Harper's Bazaar' UK: My Body Is Average

Fri, March 30, 2012 4:40pm EST by 9 Comments

The super thin star not only flaunts her post-baby body, but she insists her tiny frame represents the ‘general public.’ Though her photos are stunning — do you agree with her comment?

Posing for a 10-page spread in the May 2012 issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK, mommy-of-four Victoria Beckham has clearly lost any extra weight she gained since giving birth to 8-month-old daughter Harper. While she’s known as one of the skinniest stars in Hollywood, it’s a bit shocking to learn that the former Spice Girl thinks her slender body type represents the average woman.

In the surprising interview, the singer-turned-fashion-designer says she prefers to test her products on her own body, rather than going by how it looks on some young, tall model.

“We always joke that we have this fabulously gorgeous 17-year-old model who is six-foot-whatever and then I say ‘OK, I’m going to put it on. I stand for the general public here.’ It’s how I work,” she tells the mag.

She also adds that trying on clothes while sporting a baby bump wasn’t an easy thing for her.

“I found it really difficult when I was pregnant and I couldn’t do that. It’s part of the process – I’ll stand here in my knickers and start draping fabric over myself,” she says. “It was very hard when I didn’t have my body.”

What do YOU think of Victoria’s claims that her body represents the general public? Is she way off?

Of course in her world and the people she hangs around being that skinny is normal. In the real world NO WAY! I’m 135 and 5’7 I think that’s about normal.

Actually, 135 is the norm on a 5’7″ woman, as I am one myself and I checked. Others would say we are “fat” however. The celebrities and their bodies! And this Victoria saying how it was “when she had her body.” She ALWAYS “had her body!” She used it to carry, nourish, and birth a child as many of us do. She never LOST it. Do these clebs talking like that make you as riled as they make me? I couldn’t be a celeb – I’m too “normal!” Lol Take good care, and never let anyone tell you that there is a thing wrong with your size. Doctor’s charts say that we are the weight we NEED to be to be healthy for our height. Worst about all this is that young girls read these things and begin to think that, for instance, being 5″7″ and weighing 110 is “fat.” They become ill after a while, some even die. Remember Karen Carpenter? (God rest her soul.) Again, take care of YOU and have a Merry Christmas!

She lives in a world where she’s surrounded by extremely thin women. The wealthy women I see on a regular basis on Long Island and NYC are typically very very thin. It may be BDD or it may simply be lack of perspective.
