Model’s Natural 20-inch Waist Makes Her the ‘Human Hourglass’

Romanian model Ioana Spangenberg says she has natural 20-inch waist. When you see her thin middle in contrast to her 32-inch hips, it’s no wonder tabloids like The Sun are referring to Spangenberg as “the human hourglass.”

The 30-year-old clocks in around 84 pounds, and says she was average size until her teen years. “When I was 13 my waist was around 15 inches. Someone could put their hands around it, their fingers would touch and they would still have extra room,” she told the Sun.

Spangenberg insists she’s tried everything and cannot gain weight around her midsection. “No one seems to believe it, but every day I eat three big meals and I snack on chocolate and crisps all the time. I just have a small stomach. It’s a bit like having a natural gastric band – if I eat too much, I feel sick,” she told the Sun.


“In Romania it is better to be overweight, because that means you are from a wealthy family…so while my friends were going out and dating, I was sitting at home with Mars bars wishing I could fatten up,” she told the paper.

If she really, truly, is not wearing corsets, we’re glad Spangenberg has come to terms with her natural appearance and we’re glad she’s gotten a good response from viewers. We can only hope women won’t latch on to her unattainable size.
