Honestly, at this point, I’m inclined to believe that, that’s better for your country. At least they are not like my country…with healthcare prices skyrocketing because the majority of people are overweight and need extensive treatments for diabetes, heart disease, and etc, because they just won’t say no to second portions.

“Because they just won’t say no to second portions.” What an insensitive and silly comment. It’s just that simple and easy right? The obesity problem in our country all comes down to that?

Alana

I definitely agree with you that there are way too many overweight and obese individuals who are making healthcare more if a pain BUT being this underweight is also very unhealthy and using the healthcare system to help them get better as well. Treatment for eating disorders is long-term and costs a LOT of money.
I think people should aim for being healthy and staying in their BMI range, exercising and eating in moderation… the same stuff people have been saying for years but nobody listens to.

Casey
Guest
Casey

Yes, eating disorders are a issue too, but let’s look at it objectively. About 2.6% of Americans suffer from an eating disorder. About 60% of Americans are overweight. I don’t want to downplay the disorder or anything like that, but I think it’s safe to say that eating disorders, while a problem, is not the biggest problem facing my (ours if you’re American) society, and its healthcare.

i see you drank the republican/libertarian kool-aid.

healthcare prices are skyrocketing because we allowed healthcare to be a commodity on which insurers can make a profit.

did you know that people working in insurance get a bonus every time they refuse to provide coverage for something?

but sure, blame it on the people. if it makes you’re “i’m skinny” candle burn a little brighter, go right ahead.

The antagonism in your comment was completely unnecessary. While I don’t define myself as a Republican OR libertarian, I am irked by the fact that you bring that up and say it as if it was an insult. That’s very biased and narrow-minded. I agree with the rest of your comment. However, I don’t think people are blame free either. I have come across plenty of information which has led me to the opinion that I posses. I’m not sorry that it doesn’t agree with yours, because I’m allowed to posses it.

Second portions!!! You should third and fourth as well!! Seriously why is obesity in western culture so high and by western I mean US/UK? I mean it’s scarily ridiculous. I was in the US recently and the police were nearly all over weight and the odd obese one too, now I understand why they carry guns they’re too fat to chase you so they may as well try to shoot instead. I be terrified if UK police were given guns also. But what with junk food available on every corner its not surprising. That said malnutrition can occur if under/overweight… Read more »

Briana Hunt

Okay I’m a bit overweight but you know what I don’t eat alot, and yeah okay some people really pack it away but you can’t just make it sound like every overweight person over eats because that’s NOT the case. People can actually be with a bone structure that will never be a size 4 you know. That’s not an excuse for someone being 300 lbs, but it does mean that a person may always be 200 lbs just because they have a certain bone structure. So stop being such an ignorant jackass and pick up a book sometime. [:

hey i agree with you. I’m not from USA either, i’m from Romania and here everyone puts pressure on girls to be as thin as possible. I don’t encourage obesity but neither anorexia. Balance is the key. When you turn on the TV they show us only extra tall and extra skinny girls who are “celebrities” because they married rich old men and so on. Honestly I’m tired of them! Can’t we just see normal people? 🙁

Svetlana

Umm, a sandwich won’t make her overweight??!?!

I also think she would look better with 15 more pounds on her – she would enter the ‘normal BMI’ range this way… plus, the pounds would go just to the right places, so she can afford it.

Casey
Guest
Casey

I didn’t say it would. I think she would look better with 15 pounds as well. She has spent a little too much time at the gym, clearly. I liked her 2 years ago when she was a little larger and softer.

But Jackie’s comment was that she NEEDS a sandwich. No, not really. What is the reason for her needing one? Because she’s thin? Why, we don’t have enough average-sized and overweight people to look at that even the thin ones need to become average-sized or overweight? She would look better, maybe, but she doesn’t NEED to do anything.

lc
Member

Yes, she does not NEED a sandwich. Is there something wrong with looking the way she does? Um, no, not at all. She’s pretty near perfect, if you ask me.

Ha, I like that. Candice “needs” a sandwich, but Tara Lynn, need to lose weight? Why, whatever for? She’s fine being her size. RIDICULOUS.

Casey
Guest
Casey

I didn’t check out the Tara Lynn thread but if that’s the general consensus then my opinion is confirmed. I think people find thinner bodies threatening in some way and so they don’t want them to exist, when in reality, they shouldn’t be threatening. Women who are as thin as Candice are not the norm in real life. There’s plenty of gorgeous normal-sized or even overweight girls, so Candice doesn’t NEED to do anything. Her figure doesn’t look unhealthy either. I agree with some posters that in this picture her hips and small torso look freakish. However, I saw her… Read more »

Alana

For me personally it’s hard to look at people who used to look “normal” or “average” who drop down to a waif/bony body-type because in my family there was always an emphasis on being thin and that food was bad and I developed an eating disorder and almost died from it so I’d rather see an average woman than an underweight one because it makes me wonder if they are doing bad things to look how they do. But at the same time I’d also rather see an average person than an overweight person because overeating is unhealthy too.

jjj

She certainly doesn’t need a sandwich. She has a perfect body now and she looks best at her current weight. She would not look as good with 15 pounds as she looks now.

lp23

I think she is one of these women that would look better with more weight on her. Her body shape is naturally very curvy. Kelly brook is the same.

Who wouldn’t be in awe of her? She has the perfect body proportions, and then a beautiful face to top it off. She is a rare specimen!

Nicole
Guest
Nicole

I think she is stunning – face and body. but her waist to hip ratio is pretty extreme in comparison to other models so it seems kind of grotesque

Not saying she is fat or hip-py, just saying her waist seems so ridiculously minuscule that the ratio of that circumference to her hips (something that can’t be changed as much due to bone structure) is large

Leah
Guest
Leah

i wouldn’t say it’s grotesque. more like incredible. i mean, is it possible to have a too-small waist if you’re at a healthy weight? she’s pretty much as close to perfect as it gets

mel
Member

Yeah, I get that WHR is a good thing, but hers is a little too extreme for me sometimes, to the point where it looks somewhat odd. I actually would prefer a wider waist (I know that sounds crazy, but still) because her waist looks kind of bizarre at some angles.

kate
Guest
kate

i know, it’s tiny, i would guess it’s like ~21 inches. my best friend’s is 23″ and she’s 5’9 like candice’s measurements say, and her waist is “broader”.. candice’s is soo small, to me it’s a bit too small to fit her body somehow. but she still looks amazing

Kate1st
Guest
Kate1st

I don’t think her waist is under 23 inches, it’s more just the extreme waist/hip ratio which can make the waist look even smaller than actually is!

kate
Guest
kate

her hips aren’t wide, if you imagine her with a bigger waist. to me, her waist is so teeny that it makes her hips look big. its definitely under 23″ but I don’t know to what extent

Kate1st
Guest
Kate1st

Well a 23 inch waist and 35 inch hips would look pretty extreme (even though 35 inch hips are technically small)….it’s comparable to Kim Kardashian’s 26-39/40 just Candie is much longer and thinner!

Casey
Guest
Casey

I agree, her waist looks extreme especially in these shots. But I don’t know, I kind of like the extreme-ness. Like I said, I saw her in person and she reminds me of a Barbie doll.

I think she’s probably around a 0.65 WHR? I’m somewhere around a 0.72, and I do wish my waist was even smaller. It may look a bit weird in underwear/bikinis, but I think that kind of WHR looks great with clothes/dresses.

Kate1st
Guest
Kate1st

I agree Casey, am guessing her waist is about 23″ and hips 35″…so that’s about 0.65/0.66

Serafiina
Guest
Serafiina

I think it is even smaller.. Mine is 0.66 and my waist is much bigger than hers

Kate1st
Guest
Kate1st

Well unless you are 5ft10 with a 23 inch waist, I’d imagine most people’s waists would look bigger!

Casey
Guest
Casey

Kate1st, I think so too. Maybe even 22″ for the waist.

I remember reading some comments on other threads putting her waist at 19″. I was like, “really?” *big eyes*

I think VS models look really petite because of their thinness, that people forget that they are 5’10 glamazons. They’re much larger than you would expect in person. A 22/23 inch on a 5’10 frame is pretty tiny.

Serafiina
Guest
Serafiina

I meant that I think that her WHR-number is smaller. I realise my waist looks bigger than hers because I am shorter, but same goes with hips, so I think she is more like 0.63

tina
Guest
tina

I’ve got a 23″ waist and 35″ hips but I’m about 5’5. I do look a little like Candice except her hips look bonier for some reason. I personally think the shape of her waist looks a little odd … notice how it’s straight, and then widening out? As to why it looks so small, it’s probably the broadness of her shoulders + the shape of her waist and hips more than anything.

mel
Member

@tina I have around the same measurements as you, weirdly, and am also around the same height, but my waist/hip area doesn’t look anything like Candice! Measurements look different on everyone, so I don’t think we can really pinpoint exactly what her measurements are.

Kelly
Guest
Kelly

I looked her up. her waist is 23.5 and her hips are 34

Casey
Guest
Casey

Don’t trust measurements put up by modeling agencies. To them, every model is 34/23ish/34, when they clearly don’t all share the same proportions.

I think Candice is 32/22/35 (if you look at candid pictures).

Leah
Guest
Leah

i’m not sure i’d say 22, maybe 22.5/23. i mean, she is 5’10”. but yeah, i’d say 35″ for hips

mystic
Guest
mystic

She’s pear shaped and probably starving to try keep her bottom half from getting bigger, thats also why her waist is tiny in comparison. I don’t get her appeal to be honest, she’s all limbs and flat chest what’s the big deal? but thats just my opinion.

Luella
Guest
Luella

She looks about a C-cup, that’s not flat chested.

And you should be more careful when saying that she doesn’t have appeal because she is *flat chested*. It’s a little insulting to women who do have smaller cup sizes.

Chrissy
Guest
Chrissy

and that’s not pear, look at those shoulders.

However, Luella is correct. flat chested girls have lots of appeal

Kate1st

If she is ‘flat chested’, then I must be concave : S

Casey
Guest
Casey

“She’s pear shaped and probably starving to try keep her bottom half from getting bigger,”

Because there’s no such thing as a slim pear shape…Pears aren’t overweight figures…they just describe a weight gaining/fat storing pattern. Someone’s actual weight and frame are independent of their shape.

And besides, she’s not a true pear. She’s a pear/hourglass mix.

She has ridicilous hips, awsome. At least on some of the photos… I don’t know which ones are the most shopped but i think i recall seeing some candid-type pics of her where she also seemed to have a great WHR. I don’t like her face though. I can see why someone would, and in a way i find her beautiful, i.e. i’d call her pretty, but at the same time i see her as plain and somehow annoying looking, if not ugly.

I think the first picture is airbrushed… Candice does have a low WHR, but her waist isn’t that small in all her other bikini pictures. Silly, they shouldn’t air brush women, because it isn’t real.

anabel
Guest
anabel

Honestly, I used to love her body a lot, but now she’s just way too thin for me, I have to say. She’s got amazing proportions, she’d just look way better with a bit more weight IMO. Some of these pics are actually kinda painful to look at, though she certainly has a beautiful face and, as I said before, great proportions.

Erica
Member

I completely agree with you! The last time I saw bikini pics of her I thought her stomach looked a little too flat, but she didn’t look this, well, I almost want to say emaciated, but that’s too harsh! She is scary skinny now though! She would look so beautiful with a healthy amount of body fat because she has such amazing hourglass proportions – just as you said.

Nkeon
Member

I kinda agree with you.

I don’t usually comment on Candice posts because she doesn’t appeal to me as she seems to do for the majority of posters here.

Granted she is a very beautiful woman with a lovely shape but I’m not in awe of her. However, I don’t think these photoshopped pictures do her any justice at all. I’ve seen candids of her and she looks loads better in those.

Rochelle
Guest
Rochelle

I agree… Candice looks better in candids. These airbrushed pictures are silly. Why do you need to airbrush a naturally slim woman with a good shape?

Rashiba

I am from the Arabic world and I can tell you for a fact that here, she would not be considered attractive (body-wise, though facially for sure yes) because of how thin she is. Here women who are at least Beyonce’s size are considered beautiful.
It bothers me that Americans forget sometimes that they are not the entire world.

aj
Guest

Interesting comment. I kind of wish I was born in the fifties where in the western world it was nice to be on the curvy side. I know some guys still like the curvy look and some like the thin look but its this constant war between the two that is so tiresome. I’m not from America but from Australia and the thin trend has spread there and many parts of Europe, New Zealand, England, western world in general really. So fair comment, but its not just America that has this body image problem.

mel
Member

But on the reverse side if we lived in the fifties, then girls who weren’t curvy would hardly get any appreciation! So I actually like it like this, where there’s pretty much an equal balance of guys who prefer curvy and guys who prefer thin. And if you’re curvy and thin, like Candice Swanepoel or Megan Fox, you’ve pretty much got the male population at your feet.

solaxia
Guest
solaxia

I personally wouldnt call Megan fox curvy at all…I dont think her whr is all that curvy really…it appeared curvier when she was meatier. Candice to me though, even though she is ‘curvy’ is still far too thin looking imo. Also, i think when women are curvy and thin, they can often be seen as ‘bigger’ as i was saying in a previous post…simply because of how curvy their frame is

CurvesRule
Guest
CurvesRule

The majority of males prefer curvy/hourglass, as established on previous threads.

Candice is much better to look at than the Giselle’s and Alessandra’s out there because of her curves. She would be absolutely stunning if she had another evenly distributed10 pounds on her.

mel
Member

I see that you always have to point this out. Anyways, I guess I should have said there is a good balance (from my experience) of preference for thin (and by this I mean healthily skinny/slim, not anorexic)and curvy vs. meaty and curvy.

I know that, but that’s not what I meant. I am talking about the fact that Americans think that the whole world shares their perceptions of beauty (because yes, they are more globalized through media), while in fact, half the world prefers other body types than Candice. Because even in this forum I have read: ‘How can you NOT find her attractive? are you insane?’ -type of comments.

Sharen

What does that even have to do with this photo shoot?!

Ashes

She’s just stating her opinion. I don’t think you need to relate all comments directly to the shoot. If she’s inspired to say something as a result of other comments here she should just say it.

Rashiba

What does it have to do?? I’ll put my ideas in more simple words:
Candice is beautiful in today’s media trends and Hollywood glamorized thinness philosophy, but she is not beautiful where I come from.
Now is it connected to the post enough for you?

nazle

No, I still find the “it bothers me that Americans forget sometimes that they are not the entire world” unnecessary. On the other hand, Ashes comment has convinced me, so go ahead and say whatever, I’ll do the same.

Casey
Guest

I agree with you Sharen. Nobody said, “‘How can you NOT find her attractive? are you insane?’” as the original poster claims, nor did they bring up American beauty ideals and generalized them to all cultures, so the, “Americans think that the whole world shares their perceptions of beauty ” comment was incredibly unnecessary and out-of-place. What I’ve seen here is people saying Candice is an ideal in THEIR eyes. I think the original poster is generalizing that all the posters here are Americans and that they are not aware of differing beauty opinions, when they are probably not all… Read more »

wow, this is an ignorant comment, but i support your right to have it and voice it.

Rashiba
Guest
Rashiba

@ Casey, I said that on this forum, not on this particular thread I read comments like that.

@ Nicole, I don’t think I am ignorant, since I feel that I am very well informed and well traveled. I lived in America and although I loved many things, the truth is that the majority of people really have no idea about the things that are happening outside their country and that includes economics, geography, … and yes, beauty ideals.

mel
Member

I agree to some extent – other countries such as Africa and Latin America, for example, tend to prefer a fuller look, but a lot of European countries tend to idealize slimmer women as well. For example, since Paris is the capital of haute couture, I think runway influence rubs off on people there, because I’ve always heard French people say they like the svelte look.

Rebecca
Guest
Rebecca

Thanks for pointing out Paris … lots of slim girls on Parisian runways, that’s for sure!

What’s ironic, to me, is that Candice is from Africa. I think it boils down to personal preference. Just because the majority likes something doesn’t mean that everyone does.

Laura

Well, I think nowadays no country prefer a fuller figure, maybe an hourglass figure but not fuller, most men desire a skinny girl with curves, it’s rare to see a man who desires an overwieght girl, even if she’s an hourglass.

mel
Member

I do agree with you that the majority of countries prefer a slimmer figure, but I’ve been to Africa and read about it, and most people there don’t have very much food, so a larger woman will be more attractive to them. Whereas in countries that have more food, such as America, the reverse is generally more desirable. It’s all an issue of rarity – if everyone was a skinny hourglass, people would not aspire to be that way.

Abby

This is in reply to Mel comment. Just because you have been to Africa and read about it does not mean we are all starving and prefer curves. I am in fact from South Africa where Candice is from, and although we have underprivileged individuals (like all countries do), we are very much a developing and western-like country. Candice made it big here before working overseas, We as a country prefer the slender look. So just as the Americans do not want to be put into a generalized category, Africa is a massive continent with varying degrees of preference. The… Read more »

I 100% agree with Sharen and Casey. Not all posters here are American, and I found the OP’s comment about Americans to be offensive. This shoot was not done in America, nor is the model from America. So obviously the opinion that her figure is attractive is very widespread.

Every culture has different norms for beauty. If the U.S norm of beauty bothers you, you can easily find the websites that provide different ideas conforming to your culture. If you are curious about what other culture considers beautiful, you can always venture into their territory and enjoy different viewpoints, absolutely no need to attack them because they’re different from your perspective. I’m not American, and have no idea which culture I have to describe for myself because I’m half Japanese half French, born and raised in Singapore(later in France), went to college in the U.S., and took a job… Read more »

Well it’s pictures like this which prove that the standards for models and what is considered beautiful in general have shifted. There used to be this whole thing about proportions which seem to have been thrown out the window (I think Heidi Klum was the first example). I don’t know about you but personally? That tiny ribcage against those womanly hips looks terrible! Or at least…strange?? I don’t know. It just doesn’t look normal..

the curves on her body are nice but she could really use like 10 extra pounds on her.

mystic

Yeah but another 10 – 15 pounds on a pear would go straight to her hips and not evenly over her whole body.

Rochelle
Guest

It wouldn’t all go to her hips, though – probably about 60% to her hip/thighs, and 40% to her torso.
When people gain weight, some of it does go everywhere. No one is like a size 0 torso and size 20 hips lol!

kate1st
Guest
kate1st

She has a great figure and lean body BUT like with most VS models they are always very thin, ectomorph body types.

I’d like to see some more VS models with slighltly larger builds and more than a size 2. For example 5ft10, 130lb-140lb, size 4-6 as opposed to 110lb-120lb and a size 0-2 (but same level of body fat). There are perhaps a handful of VS models who fit this description, but the majority don’t.

Of course they have to be ectomorphs to be models. What else would they be??

The point?? I was stating some facts about how Candice’s beauty would be perceived in various parts of the world. Or these ‘other parts’ are not relevant and my point is not valid because I am not from Europe or USA?
Everybody who is saying that she looks amazing is voicing the ideas of their society, culture and country, no?
I don’t see why comments like ‘she is the ideal’ are on point and my comment which is ‘she is not the ideal’ are not on point.

yeah, I get what you are saying, I was thinking more about the photo shoot than her… And what I meant with “she’s advertising an American company so I don’t see the point” wasn’t that your opinion wasn’t valid because you are not American, but that since it’s an American company I don’t think they have to worry about what is considered attractive somewhere else… which is maybe more related to somebody else’s comment above than yours, sorry. On an unrelated note, but following Ashes advise above, it kind of came to my mind that in a lot of those… Read more »

In what countries is it better to be considered unattractive??And what would be the reason?? Brazil-not at all.Beauty is kinda everything. The same in India,Africa etc.The difference is that they have a different image of beauty.Only because people from other countries don t get that think it s better to be unattractavie in those countries? Sure she s thought of as attractive in Europe.Europe has similar images of beauty with the US. I always find her waist-hip-ratio irritating.Like she had a surgery to get rid of 2 ribs.(like the wife of Ice-T)but I don t think she actually did that.Her… Read more »

No, not at all, I was just thinking that it might be safer to be unattractive in some countries, like in South Africa, where one in 4 men admits to rape, and 1 in 2 women will be raped at some point in their lives… or in some Latin countries and in India, where cute poor girls are kidnapped for prostitution… I think that if I was living in those countries I wouldn’t want to attract attention men’s at all, I’d rather be kind of disgusting to their eyes… I wouldn’t want to look like Beyonce.

Without wanting to wade into the whole debate about American standards of beauty, I want to say one thing about the “it’s safer to be unattractive in some countries” comment. Firstly: I think I understand what you actually meant, and I agree with your sentiments in theory (avoiding rape = good). However, I think I should point out a small flaw in your reasoning. Whilst the causes of rape are varied and extremely complex, “being too attractive” is hardly ever a contributing factor. Most rape is opportunistic and most rape is about power and control, not necessarily about sexual desire… Read more »

I completely agree with ‘edith the elf’
Rape has nothing to do with attractiveness of a woman and everything to do with twisted minds.

Implying that you’ll get raped only cause you are pretty is one of the most absurd things I’ve heard. I donot wish to offend you..but somehow when I read what you had written it appeared to me as though you blamed the woman for the rape.

I understand what you are saying there Sharen…but i think rape a lot of the time is about power. You hear of older women getting raped who may not be seen as “attractive”…and kids that do who would also not be considered “sexually attractive”…i think a lot of the time rape has a lot to do with how a woman will present herself and carry herself. Not saying its a womans fault AT ALL! just saying if they go out wearing more revealing clothes or looking less secure and confident then they are more likely to be targetted. You could… Read more »

except studies show how you dress has nothing to do with chances of being raped.

there really is NO way of doing a specific thing, to prevent a rape. Not wearing something, or acting in a certain way.

I wish people would realise this, and therefore take measures to protect themselves that are more geared for defence. I’d rather have a pepper spray then trust nobody will target me, because I am conservatively dressed.

Oh noes, I just made a similar comment above, without seeing yours. And I wrote a novel, too! Sorry 🙂

edith the elf

I think suzushii hits the issue spot on. There is nothing the victim should do or not do to prevent rape. The only thing you can do is be prepared and have knowledge. Rape is something that transcends barriers of age, gender, income, education, ability – pretty much everything.

edith the elf
Guest

Solaxia – I have a lot of issues with this comment “just saying if they go out wearing more revealing clothes or looking less secure and confident then they are more likely to be targeted”. This is not true at all. And it kinda makes me sad that you would think this. I am currently doing my doctorate in criminology and the psychology of masculinity. As part of that I am studying men who have raped or molested children and adults, and I have interviewed quite a few sex offenders – so I think I have a fairly reasonable insight… Read more »

I also have a problem with ths post. It just comes off as very ignorant. First you say its about power, which is a category of rape “power rape” then you go on blabbing about women’s presentation.. which is NOT a subtype of rape and countless studies have proven it does not matter how s—ty a woman dresses, she IS NOT “asking for it”

She’s not 90-60-90, which is the European ideal — she is more like 85-55-90. I don’t think she has ideal proportions — her waist is too small for her hips, and her chest isn’t big enough to balance it out (although her shoulders are).

Kimberly
Guest
Kimberly

I’m not sure why beauty should be based on the “European ideal”. That’s just really odd to me. Science has proved the beauty of woman’s body depends more on her overall shape than exact measurements. Some people consider her the ideal, some don’t.

julia
Guest

Yes you are correct, she doesn’t have perfect proportions at all, just an extremely small waist which being a pear shape comes as standard. Kelly Brook in my opinion has the perfect body. I can only assume all the posters who say she is perfect are pears themselves.

Casey

“I can only assume all the posters who say she is perfect are pears themselves.” Then that would be like me assuming anyone who doesn’t think her proportions are perfect is an apple shape who is jealous of her figure. It would be ridiculous. I’m a slim pear, but I envy Candice’s proportions because they are typical of an hourglass. I am a true pear, she is NOT. She may have pear qualities, but she’s not your average pear. But either way, I don’t see why you would think that people liking her figure is only because it relates to… Read more »

Serafiina

Yeah, I think her waist would look better and not so extreme if her her ribcage was a little bigger giving her more curve to her upper waistline, since it is quite straight. All the curves are in her lower waist. It would make her look more proportionate, now it looks a little odd because she has broad and quite strong shoulders. But I know this is nitpicking because she cant help what size her ribcage is. And she has had that same thing when she is heavier too. Still think she should gain a little.

I always thought that I liked girls with a nice WHR, and honestly I used to adore Candice’s WHR, but she just looks weird in some shots. I was more stunned by the strangeness of the first shot than impressed by her body. Personally, I don’t really like these photos.

Yes, I think that too. Like if her natural waist wasn’t small enough. 0_0 Not that it looks terrible with the airbrushing, though. I just think there can’t be more appropriate proportions for her than her actual ones.

Versus what is her body shape, she looks like an exaggerated hour glass to me, but I could be wrong. She might also be a very skinny vase, by the looks of the second picture.

She’s a goddess, but I can’t shake the feeling that something looks a bit unusual about her waist-hip-ratio– it’s too pronounced and uncanny. It looks as though she had ribs removed. Am I the only one who thinks this…

Casey

The “I’m a man” note is frequently used by “men” on this site to somehow add extra credibility to their opinions.

What these men fail to realize is that we are discussing celebrity’s looks, not how celebrity’s looks relate to men’s tastes. So being a man is irrelevant; that would only be relevant if we were discussing “How Attractive is Candice to Men?” Then I would be inclined to weigh a man’s opinion more heavily than a woman’s.

Ashes
Guest

Actually, a lot of women when they talk about female bodies rate them in terms of their attractiveness to men. I’m not saying that all people on the website do that, but I’m sure I’ve read comments that say that such and such a woman is many men’s idea of perfection or something like that. Also, maybe he just feels the need to state that he is a man because the majority of commenters here are female. Personally, I think it’s nice to know that he’s a man.

My boyfriend looked over my shoulder at what I was looking at and said “Her hips look weird.” I love her figure, but I can see where everyone’s coming with the weirdness-talk. Usually on a thin girl with hips, the waist meets the hips at a diagonal. With hers, they’re round which you usually see with a girl with a little bit of meat on her.

Candice really has some amazing proportions and I know that many people on this site consider her perfect. I love WHR but……..her ribcage is a little small compared to the broadness of her shoulders. In many photos, she looks really disproportionate. If she had a larger ribcage with bigger boobs, she would be considered perfection in my book. I’ll give her a 9.

Brittany
Guest
Brittany

Perfect body? I dunno about that…she has the top half of a 12-year-old boy and then the hips of a childbirthing woman. Pretty cute face thought and she looks like she’s a nice girl. Don’t understand why people are saying she has the perfect body type. Really, a woman strives to have a proportionate body; she doesn’t have that…and that’s what men like. If a woman’s curvy like Kim or more boyish like Jess Alba, they just like her to be proportionate.

bigvinamac
Guest

sorry but what’s up with some people saying she looks like a 12 year old boy? since when boys have breasts? if you look at rihanna who is thicker than candice, her body isn’t proportionate and neither is beyonce. yet people claim they have curves and frankly who gives a damn what men like? different strokes for different folks. the picture make it seem her body is not even because of photo shopped but without it her body looks good.

Ellen

Not all women “strive” to have a proportionate body. Why? Because they can’t.

Candice has a pear-shaped body. Some people have a wider hip structure, and there is absolutely nothing they can do about it. Candice is a prime example: look at how skinny she is, and yet she still has a wider bottom half.

And I doubt you, just like everyone else on here, can sit and pin-point EXACTLY what EVERY guy likes. In fact, I know a few guys that adore Candice’s body. So already, that should tell you something.

Casey

She’s kind of something in between an hourglass and a pear. She’s pearish because she has such long legs compared to the rest of her body, so of course most of her weight rests in her legs. But unlike a pear, she doesn’t have very thick thighs or a butt, and her shoulders are very broad whereas most pears have narrow shoulders. I would say in reality she’s an hourglass, but she has pear features because of long legs. She has the same features of Kim Kardashian or Marilyn Monroe’s bodies, except both of them have shorter legs while Candice… Read more »

Ellen

I’d say she is a skinny pear. Thick butt and thighs are common among pears, but I think it’s more about her weight that she doesn’t have that. She’s very, very skinny, so I kind of think her body slimmed all over. There are many variations of the pear shape too. I know I don’t have narrow shoulders, mine are broad like hers too.

Kimberly

Then you are probably a combination of both body types, like Candace. Her broad shoulders put her in the hourglass category but she gains weight on her lower half. She has characteristics of both body types. I think that’s why people are so fascinated with her proportions.

Mariah
Guest
Mariah

I have always thought of her as an hourglass as well but as I look at these pictures I am starting to see that she really is more of a pear. I am not at all an expert on this obviously but I have a small hourglass figure and when I compare my body to Candice’s it is different because of how above her waist it is almost straight while above my waist it goes out again the same amount that my hips go out. She has very broad shoulders but her ribcage and bust are not the same width… Read more »

considering how she generally looks in other photos, the fact that she does have some b❆❆bs and the fact that her shoulders are proportionate to her hips, i’m going to guess that there was a decent amount of photoshop done, for some reason, at the ribs especially. I dont believe ive ever seen anyone with shoulders of that width and such a small rib cage. Her waist size is plausible but such small ribs could not possibly be connected to those shoulders.

Perfect in the 8th picture, but her face looks a little off in the others. Usually I think she’s gorgeous, but her features don’t look as beautiful as usual in the other shots. I know her WHR is her defining feature, and I like that her waist is small, but at the same time her ribcage is freakishly narrow. I understand she can’t have the waist without the tiny ribcage, but it still looks weird to me sometimes.

i used to think she was perfection but now i just think she looks sickly. not gonna lie, i’m still a little jealous of her body….but she’s starting to look unwell. it’s not attractive when it looks like she could break in half just by touching her. i love the thin aesthetic but i think she’s starting to no longer look good. also, VS photoshops the sh*t out of those girls to make their breasts fuller, butt curvier, etc… seeing pics of her outside of the catalogue..not as attractive that’s for sure.

Just saying if anything VS are pretty much saying she should!

But despite all of that, I don’t see her skill as a model shining through in these pictures.

What separates the good models from the ordinary models is their ability to give versatility.

You can tell she is a beginner.
