    I'd really like to be a size 8 to be honest, guys always say 'you're fine, I don't like skinny girls'...but it's pretty obvious that girls they think are hot and not skinny, are...skinny. E.g. Katy Perry, Megan Fox...
    What's the ideal size?

    Ideal size for me is 8. but I would happily date a girl that was a 6 or 10.(most recent ex was a 10, but then dropped to an 8)
    you shouldnt be overly skinny, I dont like skinny girls, (e.g Kate Moss :puke: )
    but as long as ur stomach is flat and u dont have fat hanging out, its all good

    See I think I look better as a small size 8, but then if you lose weight it goes from your boobs too so you can't win them all. :rolleyes:

    Luckily my boyfriend likes me how I am :dontknow:

    Each boy will know what he prefers, but so long as you're not anything extreme I'dve thought their feelings for you as a person will play quite a big part in it too. But at the end of the day if they're not attracted to you then c'est la vie.

    Megan Fox may be skinny... but she could be a bit bigger and she'd still be absolutely gorgeous! She's just a very attractive woman.

    I think it's subjective, some men like skinny girls yeah but there are also men I know who actually love fat women! I'm not even joking... and there are men who like an average sized girl.

    I am a size 10-12, certainly not 'skinny', but I do have a slim waist and big boobs. Men seem to like that. Maybe some men want a skinnier or maybe a bigger woman...who cares?

    Everyone is different and I think most people have something they'd change about themselves if they could, even people who you may think are incredibly confident. Most skinny or very slim girls who I know, whose long slim legs I envy, wish they had bigger chests.

    So yeah. Not sure what my point is xD I recommend going to the gym though, it boosts your confidence and tones up any bits you maybe aren't so happy with :-) But be confident- confidence is sexy.

    I would never ever slim down to a size ideal for man, absolutely no effin way! Im happy being a 10-12 - that suits my body. Any slimmer I would look anorexic due to my height (5ft 9).

    Girls should just love who they are and what body shape they have been blessed with. Sod what men prefer and want . . tsk.

    Depends on height. Generally below 12 if you are under 5"8. If you are around 5"6, size 8 and so on. Frankly most women who aren't tall could be less than a 12, so aim for that.
    And yeah, guys like women who aren't chunky. The one's who say different are lying & simply think they couldn't get a chick of their ideal size.

    I dont like fat girls they're not exactly enamoring - as long as your not fat your fine id say.

    I dont know a massive amount about dress sizes but i do know about flab! and if theyre a big flabby fat girl then its just not nice is it.

    Its exactly the same for girls, who wants a fat bloke? not many people really, its just not attractive in the slightest.

    I think if you are toned and healthy, and the right size for you, then you can be attractive whether you are an 8 or a 14.

    this is true, same with bra sizes xD

    But actually, with highstreet stores all sizing their clothes differently (this seems to be happening more and more often), it is difficult to pinpoint your exact size as it depends on the store. Top shop sizes are ridiculously large and I can fit my DD chest into a size 8 top... whereas Jane Norman and West One, two of my fave shops, actually run small.

    You know what, this is actually very true.

    Some of my friends who are guys believe girls' sizes go up in odd numbers too - one of my friends was deciding between a 12 and a 14, and they suggested a size 13. Bless them.

    As long as you're in proportion and look good, the size doesn't actually matter. When guys say they like size 6/8, they just mean they don't want a girl to be fat. A girl with no fat on her but decent boobs would probably not be a size 6/8, but I don't think any guy would say she was unattractive as she's a size 10 and not a 6. Numerical size doesn't really matter.

    So true. When I first got together with my boyfriend he honestly thought I was about a size 8 when I was actually a 12. Bless.

    Having said that, one of my male friends told me on several occasions that I must be a D cup rather than the B cup I thought I was. I got myself measured and lo and behold- a D. Maybe they just pay more attention to boobs!

    Enjoy being fat with your ugly bf.
    Size 14? Seriously you know you could do with loosing weight so don't try to deny it. You know you'd look more attractive, if just not more healthy, if you exercised and lost all those extra pounds.
    This is the kind of female BS denial some come out with when faced with the hard fact that men don't like chubby and fat women. Why on earth would they? Really?? Since when is OBESITY and GLUTTONEY attractive traits in a person?
    So don't say it's the biggest crock you've heard - you know it's true and just don't want to do something about your weight? Why? Because it's easier not to. :rolleyes:
