I'm 5'4" and 125 pounds, size 34C. I wear a size 4 pants and a small/medium in shirts. I'm completely happy with my sizes, but I just wear what fits. I would like to be more toned and I am working on it, if that makes me gain a little weight, so be it.

Fit is not a number, it's a lifestyle.

I'm a curvy sz 12. For the fashion industry that's monstrously HUGE, but just looking around at other women I feel like I'm pretty average :shrugs:

At 5'7" I feel a little taller than average, especially if I wear heels. A lot of pants are way too short on me, but the "tall" is usually an inch too long! :Push:

ITA that most men prefer curves. I've NEVER had a man call me fat, only *****y women :blah:

Hmm i suck recalculating sizing...

im 1.70 tall and about 50 Kg's with a B cup which is considered thin i guess..
size 0-2 in America i think?!

Anyhow, it is surprising to see how the whole image of this changes, i am not against curved woman on magazines i am only mildly annoyed that it is becoming such a hype that these woman look down on me as being "abnormally thin or anorexic"

Even clothing stores are stocking less and less smaller sizes, do people realyhave to make sucha big deal about the ideal hight and weight?!

o yeah and im sorry to say,
If you are bigger there is a higher chance of diabetes and other complications, i dont think we want to promote that to all the thinner girls out there who want to fit in in about 20 years.

Just like thos skinny models who might have promoted curvier woman to become anorexic :smile:

I'm average height, but the rest I guess I am smaller than average? Just give me time, though. I haven't had kids yet.

(And yes, I realize this is an old thread, but what the hey.)

Well I am 5'5" size 12 and I feel huge. I am not happy with my size. So yeah I always hear that I am "average" but I don't want to be average. I have gotten too lazy about working out and I know I eat the wrong things. I should just accept this, but I can't. There are some moments when I am ok with my size but for the most part I'd love to be smaller. I am just a few pounds away from "plus" size - oh no no no! I don't like that at all!!!!! All this talk has made me hungry. :nuts:
