Candice Swanepoel is Too Skinny For Victoria’s Secret

April 1st, 2011 // 360 Comments

If you’re wondering that sound you’re hearing is, it’s thousands of “real women” clapping their bacon cheeseburgers together after hearing Candice Swanepoel might be fired from Victoria’s Secret for looking too skinny at its 2011 Swimwear launch this week. E! News reports:

Like all Angels, Swanepoel, 22, is expected to be “healthy and muscular,” according to her Victoria’s Secret contract, says our source.
“There is a really clear criteria for both Angels and the catalogue. Their career path is Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue then to Angel, it’s the highest paying contract there is, period. The image is about being voluptuous, it’s not fat, but it’s curvy,” says the insider.
“But if you start to look skinny and ‘editorial print-like’ like fashion mag models, like undernourished, it gives the image the company does not want. Their shopper is older, their target is the Macy’s shopper. These are young women who feel pressure these models, she [Swanepoel] could lose her contract if she gets too thin.

Candice, who last fall blamed her figure on “traveling,” has responded to the concern over her weights in predictable fashion:

“I am healthy and happy,” Swanepoel tells PEOPLE. “I’m heartened to know how much everyone cares about me, but in this case, everything is normal and good.”

While everyone’s getting all up in arms about this, I think we’re losing sight of an important fact here: Anorexic chicks don’t get their periods. Which is nothing. I had absolutely nothing to add to that. *walks away whistling*

    She’s still beautiful, but she has looked better and could definitely gain a few. It’s funny how no matter how much weight you lose, you’ll still feel like it makes you look more attractive… even if you end up looking sickly.

    That said, women are hypocrites. They say that “real women” are ones who are bigger and curvier. Well then, what does that make the women who are naturally thinner? Are they ugly? Get real, ladies. Yes, this chick does look like she’s getting really thin (aren’t most of the VS models super thin anyways?), but you have to keep in mind that she naturally has a waist smaller than the other models, and being thin doesn’t necessarily make her uglier than one of these so-called “real women.”

    Cut her some slack.

  6. I’ll fully admit, next to alessandra ambrosio and Adriana Lima, the blonde chick just doesn’t even register on my radar.

    No lie, and I’m not one to berate chicks for being ‘too skinny’. That chick has absolutely no muscle tone to her. I think that’s what really turns me off in the end.

    I don’t get the appeal. I really don’t and I usually like model-y looking chicks. I suppose if she did runway work it’d work better, but not swimsuit/lingerie work.

    The bottom line here is that she receives a paycheck from VS to look and act a certain way. Maybe they’re no longer satisfied. Yes VS models are ALL thin, but Candice seems to be losing some T&A- and those things are what make VS famous. They want their models to fill out the lingerie with their assets. Girls who are thin but not much else model in very different ways. Would I kill to look like Candice? Yes. Girl is hot. But maybe she doesn’t fit VS anymore. This doesn’t need to be a fat/thin debate.

      Didnt you go home yet?

    • Alexandra

      None of them fit VS. Rosie Huntington said they not only put those fake silicone things in her bra, but also stuffed it more and then they digitally enhance their boobs too.

      I’m actually interested in what Miranda Kerr would look like next to them. She is a size 0.

    HAHAHAHAAHAAH anorexic chicks don’t get their periods!! I love you Fish, you are so funny. (And I get my period, so let me know if you ever want to make this happen- there will be a bacon cheese burger waiting for you!)

    • Mila Kunis

      Ya but as lovely as I am sure you are, I think Fish LIKES that annie’s don’t get their period it means he can’t knock them up and be on the Daddy hook, then again he’s playing by the delusional notion that a girl this thin actually wants or has the energy for sex, even lying there and getting plowed whilts complaining that you are on her hair would require more energy than she has. She passed out after these pics and only came to when they hooked her up to a diet coke and cocaine IV.

    I agree with Victoria’s Secret here. If the models in the catalogs are too skinny, I might as well masturbate to National Geographic.

    Look at picture 3, and you tell me seriously that she isn’t WAY too skinny. She looks like a holocaust survivor there. If you look at a side picture of her, her legs are thicker than her mid-section, it just doesn’t look normal at all. Shes pretty, and….interesting….. to look at, but that’s about all.

    With someone with this low body fat you should see every muscle and sinew. You don’t see anything on this chick. She has NO fat and NO muscle at all. She just looks like a artificial person or something.

    Look, there’s no doubt Candice is beautiful, but she just doesn’t look healthy. Anyone who makes Adriana Lima & Allessandra Ambrosio look fat is just flat-out too skinny. End of story.

    I guess Victoria’s Secret is cocaine.

    Even if she is skinny, she is really curvy. Obese women have hijacked this word, so it feels weird to even use it (appropriately for once). She has like an abnormally low waist-to-hip ratio.

    i saw this on tv and remember thinking that she looks way skinnier than usual. it didn’t help that she wouldn’t stop getting into this pose, which is a universal trick to look skinnier in a photo.

    I know what the hell, she doesn’t look too thin. I mean she’s gorge no matter what, but she looks fine here. In the other pics I am slightly concerned for her health.

    Alright listen up, retards. I’m going to give you a little gem of advice, and you should listen because I’m way smarter than you.

    You CANNOT make arguments by amplifying your opponent’s point by a million degrees. This is the tactic of stupid people and far-right political pundits. JUST STOP. IT’S RETARDED.

    SAYING THAT CANDICE SWANEPOEL IS TOO SKINNY DOES IMPLY THAT ANYONE LIKES OBESE WOMEN.

    Jesus Christ, I wish all you stupid people would stop fucking and multiplying.

    seems to me the prerequisite for being a VS model is having boobs and an ass to hold up the lingerie. If you want to starve yourself, then you have to get implants to get the job done. Personally, I prefer a slightly muscular set of abs rather than being able to see someone’s spine from the front. But hey, that’s just me.

  31. gigi

    nah… I’m an average-sized chick, and I think Candice is fine. She’s just tiny – a natural ectomorph body that doesn’t have a lot of fat on it. If you look at some of the shots Adriana’s ribs are showing way more than hers. hm… wondering what’s up Victoria’s Secret’s sleeve… probably something lame & attention grabbing… So with that, I’m definitely in the mood for a burger now… mushroom swiss baby!

    Victoria’s Secret is crazy, she’s totally healthy. In fact, I just counted and she’s not missing a single vertebrae!

  33. If Victoria’s Secret fires her she can always work for Frederick’s of Hollywood. She does anal, right?

    If by “traveling” you mean “massive cocaine addiction,” then yeah.

    Scientists estimate that 40% of overweight women believe that their weight is normal. What scientists don’t know is that all of these women read The Superficial.

    • Jovy

      Hahaha. Her legs gross me out and are, in my opinion, too skinny. The chick on the right is just downright manly and emaciated looking as well. I’m not trying to be mean, I’m stating my opinion. And no, I’m not fat. I’m actually underweight and suffering from an eating disorder, something I’m not proud of. Maybe if I turned off the TV, stopped looking at sites like this, and focused on myself more I wouldn’t have such a fucked up mentality.

    She is thin but amazing. If anyone ever watches the VS show on tv every year, you should know she is not even close to the thinnest girl on the runway. They have chicks on there who have barely hit puberty and not only do they have no chest but they are runway models (meaning as skinny as they come).

    Look at her arms, they are like cami diaz arms. She works out. This pic is deceiving because she is in a position that makes her legs look as skinny as possible. Most girls know that pose.

    At her “model size” she’s a BMI of 16 and right now she’s below that. Sick to encourage women to be like this. We’re human beings.

    I had two roommates who were naturally thin and weighed 85 lbs – they still looked bigger than this chic.

  49. thisisjustlogic

    i am a 5’2″, 135 lb female. no man has ever found me attractive and every time i go to the doctor, she tells me i have about 2 weeks to live, on account of i’m so fat. i’ve accepted that my fat brain has told me that those women are skinny, but that if i worked out and ate properly i would lose 35 pounds and grow six inches so that i could be loved. sadly, i am too lazy to eat properly and work out, so i live alone in a cave of ice cream. i’m sorry i couldn’t be prettier.

  50. wow

    Yeah is she really skinny? Yeah she is but they all are! And alesandra ambrosio is way skinnier! It’s really unfair. There all basically the smae and shes the one everyone thinks is the hottest.
