I prefer slim much more. The idealization of beauty goes in loops ever since the first depictions of that in civilised art. The bigger female in Mesopotamia, representing birth giving, the creation. Then we had the doric, ionic civilizations that made them thin, and so on until around after the big influence church had by imposing the ban on overeating as it was a sin called gluttony. 1700-1800 idealized beauty as more plump, then we find ourselves in 1900-1930 with slim and extra slim, 40s and 50s with more meat on bones, 60s-70s with skinny hippies, and from 80s onwards sizes changed due to various reasons, fast food explosion, clothing companies accommodating new demographics. A few years ago people kept saying 90-60-90, talking about the perfect size for women's bust, waist, and posterior. Now it would appear the consensus leans towards thicc booty, more specifically, a well formed waist and thighs. Little to no reference in the mainstream about bosoms. I like history. I also like my girlfriend who is slim.20
No. They have always been and always will be the most beautiful. Why do you think runway models are always slim hourglass? Fat girls wrongly use the word curvy. I am skinny but I am hourglass (curvy) I’m 34-23-34. Having more than a 9 inch gap between waist and hip means you’re curvy. Fat girls aren’t curvy they just have flabs hanging from everywhere. You are gorgeous and have a beautiful figure and are fortunate to have it. People worship Victoria’s Secret models for their very svelte figures. You still have to be very slim and trim to be a Bollywood/Hollywood actress and these are the biggest film fraternities that exist in the world. Skinny girls are literally worshiped even today. Some crazy people have this weird obsession with Kim Kardashian and her fat arse but tbh it’s mainly just Black people that are into that. Most Asians and White people prefer their girls small and dainty unless they are crazy and have some strange fetish.
From one beautiful skinny girl to another. Be proud of your gorgeous figure girl! You’re beautiful and your figure is one that people die to have around the world. Do you know how many people work their asses off to maintain a tiny physique? You have it with minimal effort. Be glad!53
Trust me, they are not. I am skinny myself (also have a fast metabolism and always been skinny since I was a kid) and honestly, the only people who have ever insulted me about my weight and made fun of me were always bigger women. Which to me sounds like insecurity and jealousy. But I've never had any problems with men though. I've had many men consider me beautiful, sexy or that I have a nice body. Just like I've heard women say the same thing too. Social media is literally a joke though. Perfect place for bigger women to act like babies when people insult their weight but then will go and bash skinnier girls for their weight. Bunch of hypocrites.
Just ignore them. If you are healthy and happy with your body, that's all that matters. You are beautiful and being skinny is not ugly. Here is a picture of me to show that I am also in the same boat :) also remember, everyone has different preferences as well!56
What Girls & Guys Said
I'm a big girl, and I've never skinny shamed a skinny woman. If she looked healthy (you look healthy in your pics) I'd probably lament her ability to make daring style choices and the clothes she could wear that I would look like a can of biscuits in. If she looked unhealthy, I'd assume there was more going on. Body dysmorphia or disordered eating, where a comment from me wouldn't help build that person up. If it were a loved one (I had a cousin with disordered eating) I encouraged them to GET healthy, eat more and exercise to achieve the look she wanted. It makes me sad that women size shame each other. We have enough problems beyond hating on each other's looks. I love you, skinny chick. Be good30
I don't think so but my idea of beauty comes from the great classics of paint and sculpture (the names of the teenage ninja turtles) Leonardo DaVinci, Miguel Angelo, "Donatello" real name Donato di Niccolo di Betto Bardi, "Raphael" Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino, all of them painted the most beautiful women they were definitely not skinny, not fat for sure but they were voluptuous women thick and full body women with hourglass figures... And that's what I learned to love not skinny not fat somewhere in between completely beautiful for sure.20
I don't think so at all. In fact, I find that people who prefer heavier girls over slimmer ones are more in the minority. There is a lot more positivity and praise towards heavier set women than in the past, but I do not think they're generally seen as more attractive than slim women or that slim women are now considered ugly.
I have noticed the trend of women putting down slim body types, however. Unfortunately, some people cannot bring themselves up or feel good about themselves without putting someone else down. It is entirely possible to be happy with your own body without speaking lowly of or unduly criticizing someone else's in a harsh and unnecessary manner.10
I was thin until I got on birth control at 27. I couldn't gain weight and weighed 95 pounds at 5' 1 1/2 ". Thigh gaps used to be the norm before the super thin look was popular in the 90s. We just ate differently and even if we had sweets we were more active. A lot more walking, etc. When I was growing up we had three recesses and played on playground equipment.
I weigh 120 pounds now and people are always saying I'm thin even doctors. I don't find 120 pounds thin just a healthy weigh for a woman my age. It is actually toward the top of the weight range for my height. In Japan the average weight for a woman my age is 116 pounds.
With time I got curves. Birth control, eating more, having a baby, having my hormones drop all contributed to more curves. Just enjoy your weight now because most likely slowly as you age you will gain weight.12
I think you’re pretty. I had the same body as you when I was in my late teens, early 20s. But I started carbo loading and I ended up getting a bigger chest and a butt. I did have to work out for my butt tho. (In case that was the direction you were going for). But anywho, even when I was skinny, I was never “skinny shamed”? I heard other friends tell me about it but I think some (not all) women sometimes try to knock others down to make themselves feel better. Since being skinny was so popularized for so long. But. Skinny shaming isn’t really a big thing, I think now it’s more that there’s more “body positive” movements.10
Not totally sure, but the "marketing" world changed to accept promotion of "thicker" body types as that is what is the majority in the US, so you see more of it. I don't see women "shaming" skinny women at all.
Some guys like skinny, some don't. I get high metab... I used to have that problem... I think what you eat makes a diff... like cut the sweet stuff out and sugar. But bread should put on pounds. Get older, you'll gain lbs.
We have a massive overweight problem in this country. Realize how the human mind works... we don't see what is there, we see what we project. So skinny or fat can see themselves different than they actually are. In my area... it's downright pathetic how overweight people are. I wouldn't sweat skinny unless it is a health issue for you. I know guys who married skinny women...10
Um... no. Girls who are actually attractive will always be attractive. Stop saying "curvier" to mean what it actually means-- fatter. The reason so many people are more and more okay with fat girls is because they feel like they have to be. So many people in America are incredibly fucking fat that it has actually become normal, for both guys AND girls, but sadly, especially for girls. We as guys have far fewer options now as it pertains to attractive girls because the majority of females are fat now. It's disgusting but until as a citizenry we decide to make ourselves slimmer and fitter and exercise more, it's going to be the norm.20
I agree with your take. No they aren't considered ugly. People can be really rude unless society forms a social protection rule for their group. Big people have this protection but skinny don't. And of course it's always true that some people like big and some people like small.20
Stop caring so much about what everyone else thinks; by doing that you will never get an answer since everyone's preference varies specifically to them.
Some dudes like skinny with no ass and titties.

Fishing for compliments like. 🤦🏻♀️2
Slim will never be ugly (OK, opinion) because it's healthy. I'm very lean, but probably b/c I play a lot of sports. I don't mind if people find my leanness unattractive. But I prefer lean bodies over larger ones or hyper-muscled ones. (Just personal preference.)10
Looks pretty to me, but then again I'm part of the generation you were talking about. I tend to like all sorts of aesthetics now. In my eyes, that sort of figure looks best in dark stockings and heels. The legs become a focal point, and careful focus on posture.10
Definitely not the case. Models on a catwalk of either gender are never representative of the general perception of beauty. As a slim guy I get that a lot too as I know I can never look like Jason Momoa but I still think I look good in a suit or a leather jacket so I don't mind too much! Beauty is in the eye of the beholder after all!
From seeing your profile picture, you have stunning eyes and a beautiful smile! You have no reason to feel self-conscious!10
You are gorg.
A year ago I lost about 50lbs. A coworker saw a picture of me from last year (he hadn't joined the company yet), and he told our other coworker that I looked better "fat". Point is I wasn't healthy, I mean I thought I was, but I wasn't.
I'm happy the way I look now. But I always get shamed.22
In my opinion, as long as the person is fit and healthy then it is all good.
Now I am not a specialist but you do look under weight. So if you actually got your self checked and you don't lack any vitamins nor feel fatigue... it is all good.
Also if you like your body like that it is all that matters.
I am a lean person too since I have always been into sports and the people that used to bully me were jealous.
So keep that in mind.12
I don't find skeleton like girls attractive. I prefer fit. She needs to look like she exercises even if she doesn't. Apparently I do exercise as well, but I don't think a 30 minute mile counts even if I do 4 miles a day. Every girl I meet can easily do the same.30
Many guys are still attracted to women who are slender, athletic, not chunky, etc. The media is trying to promote an idea to young people and influence how they think, but they are misrepresenting the extent to which guys prefer overweight women.30
Tbh, it's probably either jealousy or bitchyness from others. Honestly, I wouldn't worry about it, people do put others down unnecessarily sometimes but most of the time, they probably envy you or others. You're more than fine too.30
Gets 1000 likes on tinder, instagram, etc, per day.
Has 10 guys approaching per night on an evening out.
Gets stared at wherever she goes.
Still considers herself ugly.
Slim women are an ideal. Always will be.
Skinny men, however...14
It is same as racism against white people...
They are lucky they do not have to feel bad for being fat anymore, but think that have to shame skinny people back...
I will not like fatter women more, because it is fashionable these days...31
Thin is still "IN". The best part about a skinny even scraggly looking girl is they will plump better when they get older and still look good when their hormones roll off and they gain weight. I highly discourage starting with a plump girl, oh excuse me, thic, no curvy, but really fat, because she will grow into a whale. Been there, and ran from it.10

Slim girls will always be hotter than some fat chick. No one wants to see that flabby shit up in lights. They only reason it's there at all is Marxist foolishness. Marxism lives in denial of nature and they seek equality of outcome not equality of opportunity. This leads to asinine assumptions such as men can be women or women can be men etc. All this when you can simply look around in nature and see it is not so. Sadly people eat this garbage up because every lard ass with a taste for cookies would just love to think she can be a model. It gets darker the deeper you go though. The fairy tales are for the useful idiots not the bankers and heads of global corporations pushing the whole thing. Once they're done with the deluded fat chick or trany or who ever else, they get thrown in the garbage just like it happened back in the Soviet union. Returning Red Army soldiers often were put right into the gulag system just to keep their mouth shut about the prosperity they had seen while fighting in Europe compared to Soviet bread lines. If you want to understand this stuff better, go listen to The Gulag Archipelago on youtube. It's a long book but listen to it while you drive it's worth it. And lose those Marxist words like "slim shaming" their right out of George Orwell don't play along with their sick game.
dude I don't know if you're trolling or not but please stfu. we dont need any bodyshaming here
@haileyjellybean tell em queen! all bodies are beautiful no matter if ur fat or skinny!!
its the bodyshaming and transphobia for me. "tr*ny".. "lard ass".. are you fucking kidding me?
