judging the body only obviouly.
I'm asking partly for me and partly for my friend. She has BMI of 24,2 (5'6/ 150 lbs) so that's on the upper end on what's considered healthy, but she feels way too fat. She doesn't feel attractive at all but if you have an healthy BMI shouldn't that mean you're also at an attractive weight, even if you have average muscle mass?
She is very pretty by the way, I don't think she is unattractive at all.
Now I have an BMI of 17,7 (5'4/103 lbs) so a bit underweight, is that unattractive? Does that look unhealhty, because it would categorized as unhealthy

BMI doesn't tell you anything unless you also tell us how fit you are, your muscle mass and such things.
But if we're talking about people with no extra muscle tone beyond a lazy life, the BMI scale normal zone is just that - the normal healthy zone. Under it you're starting to look scrawny, over it you're starting to look pudgy. But there aren't any sharp limits. You'll have to take each individual into account.
That being said, my preference is for the top of the normal healthy BMI range, in general.0
