Although Swanepoel did the Victoria’s Secret launch at the Mondrian Hotel in Los Angeles next to models Alessandra Ambrosia and Adriana Lima – Swanepoel was noticeably thinner than her in-shape counterparts.

Meanwhile, Swanepoel is taking the criticism in her stride, and insisting that she is “healthy and happy.”

“I’m heartened to know how much everyone cares about me, but in this case, everything is normal and good,” she told People magazine.

According to Swanepoel’s portfolio on modeling agency IMG’s website, she stands 5’ 9.5” with a 23” waist and wears a size 8 – but recent photos show her to be significantly leaner than listed.

Swanepoel has been modeling since she was 16-years-old and has credits that include spots for Nike, Guess? and Diesel and has had covers for Vogue, ELLE and Ocean Drive. She was also voted #61 in FHM’s annual 100 Sexiest Women in the World.
