Now at the same time, I have seen videos of Adriana, Alessandra and Candice discussing that they work out, and one or more of them stated that they work out more in the run up to the show. They readily admit to having trainers, they give shout outs to their trainers, they profess love for their trainers - they talk about their trainers more than their boyfriends.

As others have stated, they cover up Chanel, and yet boxy Gisele and Doutzen wore bikinis, as did thick-thighed Tyra and birthing hips Heidi, and non-waif Behati wore a cutout one piece this year, so there is ample proof supporting Erin's assertion that VS likes curves, especially when it comes to the angels and the contract models, with the exception of Chanel and a couple of others. So what's the problem here?
So why the f*ck have VS hired Chanel, Lindsay Ellingson & Erin?

Chanel is so irritating but she's very lean, twiggy and narrow. That's her build. I honestly don't think she could have the body of Tyra or Naomi or her idol, Adriana Lima, if she tried. I'm not even gonna start on Erin. She's so awkward looking to me. There definitely isn't something right about that stomach of hers.

Speaking of the VS girls, I really want Alessandra Ambrosio to put on some weight. Her body looked awful in the show. She looked nearly emaciated. She's a twig right now. She used to be stunning with a nice body but she's lost her looks. Eat a double cheese burger, Ale. Please. Along with some fries and extra ketchup.

BooBoo read the rest of my post, after the part you highlighted, I wrote "especially when it comes to the angels and the contract models, with the exception of Chanel and a couple of others."

But again, you have what is typical VS and what is the exception, and curvy is typical (non-PINK) VS and skinny is the exception. Really what it seems like they are doing is hiring girls for their personality and beauty (as defined by acceptance by the general public / the buyers of VS products) as they mature, if they are contributing to the bottom line, they are allowed to get a little bigger / curvier. Adriana Lima was similarly scrawny when she started working for VS, I think that Chanel may actually have bigger boobs in comparison to young Adriana.

Moderator's Note:

The moderators have been discussing the impact and future of this "trial" thread and have made the following decision:

We are no longer going to have a thread dedicated to weight discussions. We found that, despite having specific rules for discussion and ongoing moderation, the thread kept going off topic with prohibited discussion of medical advice and unpleasant disagreements between members.

We do not find that this topic contributes positively to discussion at the Fashion Spot.

The rule prohibiting weight discussion in all areas of the forums is still in effect.

** It's All in the Details! **
