    Then they're part of the minority that see it as a negative trait (notice I didn't say all women are into it, just not many see it as a bad thing). And yeah sure all guys who gym are roidheads. :rolleyes:

    From reading through all of that, it really seems that a lot of you have a really skewed view of what "plus size" actually is.

    As is what keeps being said, a size 12/14/16 girl will be reading through all the comments thinking "My size isn't attractive, I'm not attractive" - incredibly damaging. Your body is only one part of you.

    To put it in perspective;

    Size 12:

    Size 16:

    Also thought this was an interesting photo to illustrate how height and weight distribution makes a difference. Even though they're different sizes, they look equally slender;

    What you are posting is the best of those sizes - the majority of people in those sizes aren't necessarily just there because they have wide hips and a big bust, just like the last picture shows size 8, 10 and 12 all equally proportional, but with increasing height and maintaining the hourglass figure. In real life, people actually do have fat and the average size 14 person doesn't look like the girls in those pictures.

    No way would I date a plus size girl. But that's simply because I'm toned and fairly skinny and not attracted to larger girls...

    You get annoyed when someone stereotypes men who go to the gym but you mock larger women (and anyone over a size 10) and that's fine

    ^ This.

    How can you repeatedly make generalisations about women and what people find attractive and then comment when someone makes a generalisation about gym-goers? :curious:

    Well given a plus size model is someone who is considered fat by the fasion industry, which basically is everyone with the exception of the skeletons the British Museum puts on display.

    Yes I would date a plus size girl because the phrase is completely ****ing meaningless.

    And "in real life" women also have spots and cellulite and scars and thinning hair and wrinckles and on and on and on. The best of people is what is always presented to us to be the ideal or to be the most feminine.

    A 'normal' woman doesn't look like any girls in any size 4-10 media/modelling photos either but I bet the stick thin, perfect girl portrayed in those photos is what lots of people in this thread base what they find attractive on those types of girls.


    I take your point but why shouldn't I use models to illustrate my point? It is models that most of those in this thread, who seem disgusted by the concept of a plus sized girl, base what they find attractive on.

    Second one needs bigger boobs to carry herself better, flat chested girls should be really skinny or they look ridiculous.

    Mocking is not refusing to be attracted to someone.
    Plus it's interesting how you only jump on stereotypes that disagree with your POV.

    Lets hope you guys who are being indifferent to the size of us girls' bodies then have a read as this might change your way of thinking.

    Oh more of that "real woman" claptrap. Give it a rest, saying skinny women aren't real women is about as bitter as you can get.

    So what makes you so repulsed by a woman (god forbid your thin size 6 girl with abs, quads etc) comes home with a jumper which reads size 10 on the label?

    You know that probably accounts for a tiny percentage of fat people, do you often join in fat related threads and hold that one back just so you can throw it in people's faces?





    To each their own, I'd consider them undateable though.
    Wow! People must bow to your perfection as you walk by.

    The article actually speaks of a 'real woman' in the literal sense of the words - while it mentions skinny women it's more about how a female partner in general, regardless of how attractive models/movie stars may look, is tangible and that is what is attractive: it's hardly criticising skinny women :rolleyes:
