    Actually got to meet a fashion model through my sister. Like an interview with a talking skeleton. Had a difficult time hiding my shock. It was horrible.

    It's very sad when you talk to an "average" fashion model and are grossed out by what is supposed to be "beautiful".

    Thank you ChanceSundance. This is my body type and I am so sick of hearing people criticize it. I hate people refering to it as "young boy" or anorexic, or whatever!!! Some people are just like this and are just as hurt by idiots saying nasty things like thin females are not sexy, no "meat on your bones" --. Sure, it's stupid for models to starve themselves..yeah, yeah... just as stupid as anything else for the sake of what is considered to be "in"---but to insult all thin women? When I was young I was very self-consious.due to nasty things people would say. ANd as for the people that claim men don't really like thin women? Bullshit. different people like different things..so stop speaking for everybody else. Sorry if I sound nasty--I'm in a bad mood tonight


    Be proud of your (imo sexy) bodytype


    btw.

    To all the people that are so-called grossed out by skinny people :

    Before we critizise others , we should first take a good look at our selfs ...

    Everybody is beautiful in his or her own way ...

    I"m NOT grossed out by a fat woman just becuz i favor skinny women .... *sigh*

    People need to LEARN that they should Treat Others How they Would Like to be Treated.


    It just so happens that i find skinny girls much more sexually attractive ...., but that does NOT mean i would insult larger/bigger women.

    here"s another "skinny" pic of lovely Keira and Giselle

    ops:

    I just hate how (most) women wish they were skinny like the models and celebrities they see. Its so hard to find a woman whos comfortable with her weight. I actually wish I were heavier.

    I have come to terms with my body type and size. It took me like 15 years to do so, but I finally just said, "Screw being upset about how I look. It ain't worth it."

    The trick is learning what kinds of clothes compliment/balance your body type. I wear tops that give me more bulk through the shoulders because my shoulders are narrower and smaller than my hips. It makes my hips not look so wide, which is what I always hated about myself. The thing that sucks is tank tops don't look good on me. They make my hips and ass look huge. XD

    Anyway...not to offend anyone or anything, but I really want to offer Keira Knightley a cheeseburger or some ice cream or something. She doesn't look well. At least Gisele has some muscle tone.

    That was even at a time where Keira was getting a lot of attention for how thin she was getting, people suspected an eating disorder. She definitely didn't look good at that time.

    it's sad that the fashion industry has resorted to this....but haven't they always been like this

    something, big needs to come about, that could threaten the designers who are making the decisions not the models

    Oh god. Ali Michaels is a complete loser. She did not gain 5 lbs, she gained at least 15. One knows that in order to be a model you have to be thinner than the average woman. So by gaining weight she wasn't able to fit into the clothes, and now she's complaining. Obviously being fat isn't getting her anywhere in her career except for bad Teen Vogue covers for girls in the mid-west who know nothing about models. It's really ticking me off that she's being so annoying about this!

    Your idea of 'fat' is a bit skewed.

    Compared to modeling standards, she is. If she wants to keep being at that weight then she should find another career.

    'modeling standards'. Hmph. What's the 'standard', 50 lbs? If I had my way, I'd turn away any girl who was too damn skinny and tell 'em to eat a sandwich. That's disgusting. Now we've got girls starving themselves to death to fit the standards of 'perfection'. Sickening really.

    But most grown women weigh more than 102 pounds. And really, models should promote clothes people actually can wear. So I still think she can be a model. It's the fashion industry, that has to change its values, so the models can be healthy.

    As for myself, I'm so incredibly obese, that I could seriously have offered ten of those skinny girls 10 pounds each from my body. Both I and the skinny girls would feel better then.

    The "normal" weight is what should be a modeling standard. Anorexia certainly isn't pretty.

    I never understood fashion very well. You watch alot of the fashion shows and they are promoting clothes that most people in their right mind will not buy or wear. It's weird.


    I also agree that we all have different tastes and just as it's not right to criticise someone for being overweight, it's just as wrong to call someone naturally skinny anorexic. I think sometimes someone like myself who is overweight may say something to a thinner person like"God your so skinny..I wish I was a twig like you. Dont you eat?" (I have actually never said that but I know people who have). And we don't realize it hurts a naturally thin person's feelings just as much as it does us when someone calls us a lard ass. I think we think it can't possibly hurt their feelings because we just assume that skinny is something everyone aspires to be and that it's a complliment, when really they may be self concious about it.

    So I agree it's all about accepting yourself and not juding other people. Yes there are very obese people out there and very anorexic people out there but not all thin people are anorexic and not all overweight people are extremely obese.

    As someone who has worked in fashion for years, I've learned that I am a rarity in that I'm a firm believer that there are beautiful, sexy women (and men) in all sizes in the world. It's not about your size as much as it is about being healthy, having self-confidence and knowing how to dress your own body! Its unfortunate that that doesn't seem to be emphasized by the media or the public more.
