Victoria’s Secret Model Candice Swanepoel Emaciated: Is Her Shocking Weight Loss Too Drastic?

Posted Thu, March 31, 2011 9:18am EST

So much for Victoria’s Secret models being  ‘curvy’ — cover girl Candice is scarily, skeletally, stick-thin!

Does Candice Swanepoel look like a size 8 (yes, eight) to you? That’s what her modeling card claims, but new photos from March 30 suggest she’d be a size sub-zero if that existed. Click inside for more shocking comparisons.

Just look at the legs — so skinny, they look like straight lines. (That’s not how the human body is meant to look.)

Likewise, her waist appears to have disappeared completely.

Candice was the cover girl for the 2011 Swim issue, a huge honor, and her body will land in the mailboxes and on the coffee tables of women worldwide.

The days of “curvy” Gisele Bundchen and — remember Jill Goodacre, for goodness’ sake? — are long gone.

Is this the way VS wants the world to see women? Are you shocked — and dismayed?

Maybe they mean a UK size 8? That would be an American size 2-4

Omg she does not look scarily, skeletally, stick thin!!! What’s up with people these days? So what they’re saying is that it’s totally okay to hate on skinny people when it’s not okay to hate on bigger people? Okay, she does look pretty skinny, but she’s not that bad! Her ribs aren’t showing and her waist does not look “disappeared completely”! And very obviously, she didn’t look even close to a size 8 before! No one can possibly shrink from a size 8 to a size 0 because you can’t change the size of your bones. Candice looks fine! She’s gorgeous and that will never change! <3

Well she did look better before but I think people really exaggerate how bad it is. I think its worse that nowaday being fat is considered normal. Rolls of flesh are in no way “womanly” or “sexy”. in candices case, just a few more pounds are needed, no more.

Check your facts. IMG lists her SHOE size is an 8, her dress size a 2.

What the hell? She doesn’t even look THAT bad! She is clearly bending her back backwards and leaning forward. Everyone’s legs look thinner when that happens. Yes, she has lost weight and it is quite dramatic but she has stated in interviews that she loses weight when she is very busy and under a lot of pressure. She’ll get her curves back but i do think Victoria’s Secret are being very biased as in this photo she is about the same size as Alessandra Ambrosio. Soo many VS models are thinner than Candice so maybe they should be focusing on them and not Candice. iLoveyou Candice!!! xxxx

Will everyone stop overreacting?! Go look at some pictures of ACTUAL underweight people, then you’ll see the difference. Yes, she’s slim, but she’s healthy and that’s all that matters. Victoria’s Secret would not allow their models to become underweight and unhealthy. She looks fine, so shut up.

Just saw some pics of her without being ‘treated’ with photoshop. In those pics there is a huge gap between her thighs and barely any meat on her bones. I used to dance ballet so I know when someone is skinny (and more or less healthy) but this girl clearly looks anorexic and weak. Awful!!! Moreover, I highly doubt she could do it based upon mere will-power–I think, and what is really scary, that such extreme dieting on the long run can only be achieved by some drugs (whether legal or not) Scary!

Alessandra Ambrosio (5’10 and 110lbs) is way worse. She’s got a BMI of 15.8. Anything under 17.5 is underweight. Adrianna Lima is close to that being 5’10, 112lbs with a BMI of 16.1 Miranda Kerr, also slightly underweight, BMI 17.

Seriously VS is being hypocritical as hell. They need to check all their models because Candice actually seems like one of the healthier looking ones! At least there’s no gap under her sternum like Alessandra in the most recent Victoria’s Secret catalogue.

When will the fashion industry realize that the “superthin” look is soooo yesterday. The new modern woman is looking more healthy, has curves, and wants clothes that represent that fact. And as far as what “real” anorexia looks like, well, I think she is right at it’s doorstep. For anyone to say that this woman has “fat on her abdomen”, all I can say is you are so ignorant that your opinion is as worthless as the words we all scoffed at.

Nonsense. You don’t have a clue what real malnutrition looks like. As a Recreation Therapist I have worked with genuine anorexics. This girl has a nice cushion of fat over her rectus abdominus muscles (lower sixpack), her gracilis muscles are clearly deleanated, her biceps are good for a girl her age, and the area around her hips has plenty of fat. She is in fine condition and clearly works out. Google and compare real pictures of anorexia and malnutrition before you irresponsibly label someone. Some people are naturally slender. As she grows up, she will gain more weight. Then you’ll be complaining that she is too fat.

Anorexics don’t IMMEDIATELY become emaciated looking, it takes kind of a long time. As a “Recreation Therapist”, you get these girls when they’re at or close to rock bottom. I am a recovering anorexic, I was able to hide my condition for almost eight months and I looked pretty normal for plenty of that time.
People who have ancestry in populations that were systematically starved for long periods of time (I’m half Chinese, and there’s a long history of starvation in Chinese bloodlines) tend to have bodies more resilient in the face of starvation; that is, they still look relatively healthy even if they’ve only eaten half an apple in the past month.
As far as the abdominal fat Swanepoel has, it’s fading fast.

She’s probably under pressure to be thin right now and keep her job. What she has to realize is that women don’t buy bras and panties based on the model wearing them. They pick based on style and colour. Modelling/fashion/photography is an art form which is solely advantageous to the fashion house, photographer and brand involved. That’s all it is. No consumer thinks about the models the moment they leave the store. For her, having to starve and work out compulsively just so VS can keep up an artsy image is really no different than hanging the Mona Lisa in a museum. Spectators look, they go “interesting” then look at the next thing. I don’t buy VS. It’s one of a million lingerie stores, with hard, unhealthy-looking women dolled up with feathers and boots and flash trying to sell underwear. Whoopee.

she’s a beautiful girl, but she looks sickly, and a spray tan can’t change that fact. A sure sign soemone’s wasting away is when their head looks very large for their body, and that’s what is happening in the “after” shots.
