    yess.

    Meat on the bone is hot.
    What I would say is a lot of the girls that are targeted at men are much too boney for my taste. I love legs with muscle.

    OP, has your height also increased since you left school? The main reason for your clothing size increasing might literally just be that you've grown. I've never even heard of an adult woman having a 22 inch waist. <<

    Well, there are the 'waist trainers' of the past, who essentially bent their rib cages with corsets to get smaller...

    Relative to other girls how big are you?

    I'm a large, about 5 foot 10 and stocky
    I'm small but not extra small/extremely skinny. I'm small and petite but a bit curvy (not in the sense that basically means overweight though). I have an hourglass figure, I'm 5"3.5 and my measurements are: Bust: 36, Waist: 26, Hips: 35.

    I don't remember saying that. Glad you're here to refresh my memory along with everyone else who is telling me what I am saying and/or what I mean by that.
    It was implied in what you said. Lahmejacks said "if you're any kind of bloke who's not just seen porn and actually interacted with a woman, you'll know that we don't all have abs, thigh gaps" and you said "So attractive women are only in porn now?" implying that you have to have abs and thigh gaps in order to be attractive and that woman in real life who don't have abs and thigh gaps are unattractive.

    I'm the same height as you, albeit male, but 12.5 stone and about 16% body fat, so pretty fat as far as people that work-out are concerned. Yet people still say I look really fit in clothing.

    Granted you may not workout (dunno if you do or not and by that I mean lift weights, because if you are 10stone but mostly muscle you will look pretty small) and you're a girl (which naturally means more of your weight is fat than muscle relative to males), but at 8stone there is just no way you could be looked at and thought as of as unattractively fat. No way.

    If you want to start eating more though and not look bad for it then lift weights at the same time. It's such a life hack. Especially when your young since it makes your metabolism stupid high.
    No, I don't lift weights. I do usually do cardio though but maybe I should try weights in the future. Thank you, that's been helpful!

    Guys, just like girls have different preferences individually. You'll never be able to please everyone, so it's better to focus on just being happy with yourself.

    Well, I do take care with my appearance so hopefully that would be fine. Yes, you're probably right haha.

    A bit, yes. When I left school I was about 5"1.5 and now I'm 5"3.5. Can that affect that like that? Well, I did when I was 18; now I have a 26 inch waist (not 27 like I said in my original post, I measured it wrong originally). Hahaha well I haven't done that!

    I was very underweight when I had the 22 inch waist though.

    Thank you very much to everyone who's answered my questions so far. I have another slightly different but related question. For guys is it a turn off if a girl doesn't have a flat stomach?

    No that is a strawman. There's a difference between having abs, thigh gaps etc and simply being slim.

    It's definitely not chubby. When you were 18 you were underweight, but now you're a normal healthy weight.

    It depends on how you carry the weight tbh; I think clothing sizes are quite irrelevant sometimes.
    But generally 8/10 is not fat/chubby.
