Now I agree the size of models now is not acceptable, they are much to thin and if that is not due to a high metabolism then that is extremely unhealthy. However our average size has really increased which is sad. Either extreme is unattractive why can't healthy be pretty? Being a healthy size and looking good in the clothes.

I felt weak, I got sick a whole lot, and people said I look like bones. When comparing models, such as the ones in Victoria Secret mag. and other's on the runway that look like a boy's body with a bony woman's face, I think the Victoria Secret models with breasts and rounder rumps look a ton more beautiful. They are most definitely not fat to me, just utterly more sexy. They are just ...how shall I say, so much more voluptuous and womanly. Grown women should be womanly, not boyish in body. When society thinks a little boy's physique for a grown woman is the norm, then there is a problem. Women, of course, should not be obese but strive to be healthy.

First of all if you are too skinny you would have as much health problems as people overweight. If you are too skinny its not good and if you are too fat its not good. Meeting in the middle is what is healthy. Also being a size 6 doesn't look the same on anyone. If I was a size 6 I'd look like I weight 100 lbs or less. I have curves, a bum, breast and curvy tummy. My boyfriend likes my body and i'm plus sized. I would never want to be a size 6. I looked sickly. I HATE the way models are making too skinny is good looking to younger girls. When you feel your healthiest and think you look sexy, inside and out thats a good size. I dont know why models feel the need to highlight their hip pones and pelvic bones stand out or ribs.. There should be some flesh there. Not pure bone @ Denese, @ Mary. First of all if you are too skinny you would have as much health problems as people overweight.

On the plus side for those women who aren't built like models (the majority), there are a number of men who prefer these average women, women with fat, breasts, and hips. So, even if a women is not beautiuful, she can still be admired by men, and feel good about herself. Men are more concerned with what will feel good (cushion) in the bedroom, than with what will look beautiful. These women must have sex and have children, since they cannot earn a living modeling, but a lot of women end up appreciating their children and families and having happy lives, even though they don't look like supermodels. My point is, their are women for every purpose in life, and they can be happy.

I'm 5'1" and 120lbs and because of crap like that people call me fat and "abnormaly short". They really need to put "heavier" and "shorter" models on magazines and runways. This discusts me.

I don't obsess with what number is on the back of my clothes and I am the average height and size of the American woman. Just wear what looks good, and live happy and comfortably. Don't let life pass you by because food is one of the best parts of it. well, eventually we will all be plus size if the trend keeps going this way so then the term will lose its meaning, right?

However, there are some that are too thin. In regarding sizes of clothing - look at Marilyn Monroe - back in her day she wore a size 14 - in todays world based on the backwards sizing - she could be probably a 6 or 8.
