    Just thought I'd respond to this by saying, in the vast majority of eating disorder cases, the reason is much deeper than appearance - the starvation and desire to be thin is, in actual fact, a outlet for other problems - both conscious and subconscious.

    I understand what you're getting at - eating disorders are disturbing and seemingly illogical to those who have not suffered, though I just wanted to shed some light on the common misconception that they are simply a 'desire to become thin' - this is almost never the sole or underlying reason (it is just how the disorder manifests and is physically presented)...they are so unbelievably complexed.
    this is so true, well said

    Nope. I'm more concerned that she has a white upper body and black lower body.

    Oh my god.

    That made me cry a little bit.

    Surely people don't think that's attractive??????
    if you're sick enough to get like that, i don't think its about being attractive. although some of them are photoshopped.

    i would lovelovelove to have the girl in the OP figure.. but as somebody recovering from bulimia i'm possibly not the best person to ask... i really don't think she looks too thin at all though.

    I find it a bit worrying, as it suggests that:
    a) guys' opinions are out of step with girls' opinions (judging by the poll)
    b) guys' perception of 'hotness' no longer correlates with traditional/evolutionary beneficial ideas of attractiveness.
    c) as a girl with an hourglass figure, when compared to a girl who's so thin and boyish, will I be considered less 'hot'?

    Obviously she is considered hot, yes, but that is not without implications.

    [/over-analysis]
    a) only very slightly out of step though? pretty even if u ask me

    c) we didnt say "only this is hot", lots of different girls are hot >.< this point is silly..

    b) this one is an interesting point.. im not too sure how to answer, gonna check what the evolutionary thing says..
    * Youth

    * Waist-to-hip ratio

    * Breast size

    * Breast symmetry

    * Body mass proportion

    * Facial symmetry

    youth yep. breast size seems good too. facial symmetry as far as we can see, same for breast symmetry. BMI is good. waist to hip ratio is the only one i dont think is the "best" for want of a better term?

    This may be slightly OT, but I just voted and bumped the "hot body" vote up to 69. I thought it deserved a chuckle.

    Not what I'd personally want to look like, but whatever she wants I guess.

    Ugh, I saw some horrible thinspiration blog this morning with horribly skeletal girls in bikinis and quotes like "Wouldn't you rather look like this?"..no, I'd rather enjoy my life and eat what I like than spend it obsessing over every calorie and ending up in hospital attached to a feeding tube. Thanks, though.

    Can't deny she is extremely thin and would probably be underweight for most people. But perhaps it's just her particular build, she is a very small framed ectomorph by the looks of things.

    I suppose it would depend on how tall she is. If she was like 4 foot 11 then she wouldn't look too thin it'd look right for her height. :dontknow:
    Don't undstand your logic.

    Her height is irrelevant, if someone is underweight in relation to their height (whether that be 4ft11 or 5ft11) then they would be underweight.

    In comparison to some photos you see of girls who think they have a weight problem, she isn't too bad.
    Why do I get the feeling this is a photo of you.. and you're wanting us to say "omg she's sooo skinny, never seen anyone so skinny!"

    Maybe she does. BUT what's to say that THAT isn't at all attractive-and I'm not really talking about anything peadoy sinister.

    Think about Eva Longoria, school girl outfits, petite girls in general. It seems to be a bit of a fetish thing going on.
    I did nopt say that it's not at all attractive, but I don't like that kind of figure.. Sure, women do not want to be fat, but I wouldn't say that it is the ideal figure.

    Hmm, not very attractive to me anyway. She looks really fake, especially with the fake tan.

    And Eva Longoria has a differenet body compared to her anyway.

    Got a very pretty face, but her body would completely put me off. Her legs are like two matchsticks, she looks anorexic
