Would you rather have a model figure or athletic build?

This can apply to guys too! lol Honestly, because I associate strength with the athletic build (not like Arnold...just toned), I'd pick that choice! I want to have vitality not just be present...wbu? And what about your partner? =)

  • well I went from being verge-of-anorexia-skinny, to being very athletic and toned. without a doubt, I prefer my figure now. I have a well toned, glowing, healthy body. and yore totally right about the whole vitality thing aswell :)

    when I look back on all of my old photos from when I was so skinny, I just feel like crap. of course, at the time I thought I looked great, but now I see how unhealthy, lifeless, and sick I looked. unfortunately my sister has fallen victim to the whole model look now, along with friends. I don't see the appeal, there's just no shape or vitality to it.

    • Wow! Good for u! Bet that switch was hard! It's scary how obsessive it can become...I saw a documentary on these two ladies investigating eating disorders and one of the reporters underwent the routine herself and the production was stopped because she had developed an eating disorder herself! I think it's all about the power and feeling of having control...Glad you are taking care of yourself now! Hope your sister will do the same!

    • thank you:)i hope so too:] yeah,that just shows how easily someone can slip into that mentality. you don't actually realize how over-controlling and harmful it is to you until a good while after you overcome it, if you do. thanks for the ba too!:)

  • I'd much rather have the athletic build. I think that is a much healthier build than the model figure (assuming you aren't too big). And I like playing sports, so that would probably fit me better.

    I soooooooooo much rather prefer an athletic build than a model figure on girls too. Having an athletic tone like that is very attractive. There is such a thing as "too thin" and many models have that.

  • most guys would have an athletic build. some girls can pull off the athletic look very finely if I do say so. just the really muscular toned look on girls is a turn off for me. iam more into voluptuos, even sort of chubby girls. marilyn monroe look is the definition of the perfect body type for women in my mind.

    • Hmmm yeah it's weird how norms have changed (well in the media mainstream)...I mean she was "it" in her time...well, I'm glad you appreciate her... =)

  • for my partner I would say the athletic figure because they are more healthy and less likely to be in a wheelchair when we grow old together :) I think the most important thing is the heart... because you could starve yourself and be slim but that doesn't mean you have a good heart (you have to do some cardio work for that).

    for me id want the athletic build, not a model figure. though I guess for guys, model = athletic build so its a catch 22 lol

    • Less likely to be in a wheelchair? lol True...unless they accidentally fall down a flight of stairs! =) You think model = athletic for guys? Some of those Armani guys or cologne ads are more lean IMO than muscular...no?

    • hmm I wouldn't know.. I tend not to look at guy models in ads! haha. I mean generally in the muscular sense. those guys may not be very cut but they look like they can run around the block just fine! I guess its relative. I just meant that the models look like they are in shape

    • Oh gotcha...lol I guess it's good you don't check out those ads! Didn't think about that! =)

  • I would rather have an athletic build. As for girls I wouldn't be too picky between model or athletic.

    • That's awesome that you love it! Sucks when some people are pushed into it by their parents and hate it!

  • Athletic build easily. What use is a good body, if you are too weak to do anything?

  • I think by model you mean slim? But really, models can be athletic too. It just depends on what they're modeling for.

    • True...I guess I've seen one too many with exposed ribs and was thinking that...

  • Some models look unhealthy because they're so tall and skinny! I'm not a fan of that, plus I wouldn't have a chance of being a model considering I'm 5'4, 110 ibs, and a 32 D hahaha not the typical model build haha

    • Yeah I don't like the unhealthy look at all...some of the Victoria's Secret girls do look better than the Paris/Milan runway models though because they have more meat to their bodies...

    • True that! Some models just look gross! :(

  • Model figure like the victorias secret girls *.*
