Im 5'1and I weight 80pounds. Im perfectly healthy you guys, got it checked and everything. I've been that skinny my whole life. Well its getting hot and I've been dying to wear this new pair of shorts that I haven't worn but I don't know. I wore a pair of shorts a few months ago and I got a couple of stares mainly from girls. Ever since , I've been really insecure. What do you guys think of really skinny girls wearing shorts?

wear what makes you comfortable.
but don't be afraid to eat more, either. if you gained 20 pounds, you would still be TINY.
I'm glad you are not so small because of anything like an eating disorder, but you have a LOT of room to add some weight while still remaining skinny and fit!0

Hah you must live here in LA -- it's been pretty nice this week.
Girl you should wear whatever you want to wear.
Yes, people will look at you, but...
... first, people just look at people in general. Srsly. This is the biggest thing. Most people looking at you probably aren't judging anything about you at all -- their eyes just happen to be looking in yr direction, for no reason at all. They are probably just looking right through you, without even thinking about you at all.
... second, you are smaller than most people, and that in and of itself will attract attention. Anything significantly different from the norm will attract attention. (I'm 6'2" and people stare at me everywhere I go, no matter what I am wearing.)
Also, stop listening to the people who tell you that you need to gain weight. You almost certainly don't. If you are 5'1" and only 18 years old, and you have a slight build, yr just fine.
Why did yr doctor give you a prescription that was "supposed to help you gain weight"? What did he/she prescribe?
That's weird and VERY unusual.1
