Candice Swanepoel Fires Back at Haters Criticizing Her Bikini Body 12 Days After Giving Birth

Supermodel Candice Swanepoel gave birth to a baby boy in mid-June and just 12 days later, she hit the beach in Vitoria, Brazil in her bikini.

Now, Candice, 29, has a message to the haters sending negative, body-shaming messages her way.

She posted on her Instagram Story, “This is me 12 days after having my son. If you have something bad to say about it…check yourself. Society can be so cruel to one another. Beauty standards are sometimes impossible for women these days. I’m not ashamed to show my post partum tummy. I am proud actually…I carried my son for 9 months in there. I think I’ve earned the right to have a little tummy.”

Candice continued, “Is it because I’m a model? Well we are normal people too, so let me enjoy the beach in peace please.”

She also added, “I don’t have to hide my stomach just because people have unrealistic standards of women. We create life..what can you do? Ladies we are all in this together be kind to each other.”

    Good for her, I think she looks great. People are so mean anymore!!! Congrats with your son.

  • Camille

    I agree. She looks better than some women after they’ve given birth.

  • cutitout

    She looks better than 95% of women I see in life everyday…

  • dee

    um is that a joke??? she looks FANTASTIC!! who could possibly have been hating on a woman for looking this good after giving birthto a baby! nobody looks this amazing. whatta fucking hater.

  • Honeybee

    If people on the beach don’t like your beach body, the nosy bastards don’t have to look! Whether you are a size 00 or 5x enjoy your summer ladies! Haters mind your damn business!πŸŒžπŸŒŠβ›±πŸ¦πŸ§πŸŒ­πŸ”πŸŒˆ

  • Effy

    Agreed. She looks like a normal woman who gave birth – fantastic!

  • Effy

    I don’t think that’s fair to say. Every woman look wonderful weeks after having a kid come out of her. It takes your body 9 months to form a child and it goes through a lot of weight gain/stretching, etc.

  • Wendy

    Had a baby 12 days ago and looks better than me 5 years post baby lmao. I guarantee 99 percent of those people criticizing her body look worse than her.

  • disqus_7TiI3lXPrA

    You look beautiful more now then ever. CONGRATS AND HAPPPINESS ALWAYS.

  • KS_in_TP

    I’m on her side, but she only comes across as insecure here. She shouldn’t respond to internet trolls at all. Making people upset, insecure, and defensive is what trolls do.

    why do some celebs bother reading what idiots write about them on social media? A-Listers NEVER do this.

    If she didn’t want to be criticized then she shouldn’r have worn a bikini before she became fit again.
