She was born in Horizontina, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, to Valdir, a sociologist and writer and Vânia (née Nonnenmacher) Bündchen, a bank clerk pensioner. She has five sisters, Raquel, Graziela, Gabriela, Rafaela and her fraternal twin, Patrícia.

At 14, Bündchen moved to São Paulo to launch her modeling career. She had her first break in 1996, at New York Fashion Week.
