What’s Too Skinny?

13 Apr


This is considered PLUS SIZE.
Is it because we can’t see her rib cage?

I know, such a huge topic. It’s been debated all over the place. Some cities (not anywhere near North American sadly), but oversees have banned models that are “too skinny.”

Celebrities like Lindsay Lohan, who looked perfectly fine in Freaky Friday and Mean Girls decided that being a size 4 was too fat, so she dropped to probably below a 0… same with Nicole Ritchie, who perhaps was about 10 pounds over, decided to drop to a -10 size.

Remember when “0” wasn’t a size? Now if you’re a “0,” you’re considered “fat.” Pretty sad isn’t it? It really is sad because all these girls growing up think it’s okay.. and with all the eating disorders out there and millions of girls starving themselves, why isn’t this industry doing anything about it?

I don’t know about you, but this is quite scary.

    That’s SO scary! And it’s such a bad influence because girls with normal weight are now considered fat. Ugh, makes me so mad! Thanks for posting!!

    I m size 0 but i have never been happy about my body. I know that i am TOO skinny but i have been tring to gain weight but it never worked. People always come to me and say “hey, Do you know that you are too skinny, eat something!” Some people think that all (too) sikinny people like/want to be that skinny. Some of those people are wrong.
    The more i m worried about my weight or looking too skinny, the more it s worse since when i get too stressful, i lose weight so easily and it s hard to gain it back.
    What a sad story..

    When you see huge or over weight people you think that it ‘s normal but when you see skinny people, you think that we are sick or Anorexia.

    but i understand your post that you did not mean to hurt anyone, and i have to say that was too scary to me too. (I am not that skinny yet, hope not!)
