The Human Hourglass
February 7, 2012 by staff
The Human Hourglass, Romanian model Ioana Spangenberg has a freakish figure: She has a natural 20-inch waist in contrast to her 32-inch hips. At 84 pounds and with her wide hips and tiny waist, the 30-year- old model has been dubbed by the UK’s The Sun newspaper as “the human hourglass.”
Spangenberg said she eats three square meals daily but cannot gain weight in her mid area. She said when she was 13 years old her waist was around 15 inches wide.
“Someone could put their hands around it, their fingers would touch and they would still have extra room,” she told The Sun.
“No one seems to believe it, but every day I eat three big meals and I snack on chocolate and crisps all the time,” Spangenberg added. “I just have a small stomach. It’s a bit like having a natural gastric band – if I eat too much, I feel sick.”
Spangenberg told the paper that when she was in her 20s she struggled with her self-esteem.
“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 said.
