Meet the Model with a 20 inch waist.

 

We’ve talked super-skinny models before, but Ioana Spangenberg definitely takes the conversation to a whole ‘nother level. Check out her story–and weigh in with your thoughts–after the jump.

At 20 inches, Ioana Spangenberg’s waist is just five inches bigger than a compact disc. She was profiled in The Sun UK recently, where they shared that the 30-year-old Romanian model eats three square meals a day (including indulgences like pizza and kebabs) and simply can’t gain weight around her midsection. “I just have a small stomach,” she told the paper. “It’s a bit like having a natural gastric band — if I eat too much, I feel sick.”

She had been self-conscious about her body her entire life, but when she met her now-husband, “Jan was the first person who saw me as beautiful and encouraged me to celebrate my body. He asked me to pose in some photos for him.” He put the photos up online, and the response was good enough that it eventually propelled her into professional modeling.

What do you think?
