Is "skinny" a size 0? A size 4?
What's the difference between thin and skinny?
Please help me, I'm a bit confused.
What type of body makes a girl skinny?

It might help if you think of this as a "petite" thing rather than a skinny one. Because, as some other people have pointed out, your size in jeans depends a lot on your height. You can be tall and wear a bigger size and still look slender.
But, overall, I think that when people talk about "skinny" they are thinking about smaller people in general (probably no taller than 5'5"). Although, super models are almost exclusively referred to as "skinny," and most of them are pushing 6'0" so who really knows ...
Long story short: it's completely subjective.
