But the skimpy bikinis failed to generate as much press as the noticeably slimmer frame of one of the company's beloved Angels: South Africa native Candice Swanepoel.

Swanepoel, 22, does appear to have lost quite a bit of weight, a phenomena she chalks up to stress and constant travel.  One insider speculates Candice could lose her modeling contract if she fails to put on weight, as she's expected to maintain a "healthy and muscular" build.

But it doesn't sound like Candice is particularly worried about all the press her slender frame has garnered. She told the NY Daily News through a rep, "I am healthy and happy ... I'm heartened to know how much everyone cares about me, but in this case everything is normal and good."
