Is this really as normal as people say? Don't want to belittle the OP's confidence, but that looks like a body fresh out of Belsen or something. :/ Is she standing vertical though, or is this a photo of her laying supine rotated?

My ribs show when I lie down, stretch or take a deep breath and my ASIS sticks out all the time. I think it's normal in girls. The muscles at the front of the body aren't particularly large/thick and it's hardly the first place you store fat.
As for the person who said they stopped seeing theirs when they started developing curves, my friends with curves still have their ribs showing when lying down. :dontknow:

my ribs (and hipbones) stick out too. but I don't really care about that, to be honest. and I'm slim, but not extremely skinny... my doctor says that it's because the ribcage is at a slightly different angle (it's going more like that / , and most people have it like that | ... okay, not exactly, but you get the idea ). it might cause problems, though, with lungs, heart, and especially your back. but that's only in extreme cases. there's nothing to do about it, I guess... you could gain some weight so your ribs wouldn't stick out, if you wish.
(though my doctor reassured me that this 'problem' will disappear once I get pregnant, so if you're really desperate you could try that )

I'm like that, I'm not under weight anything but you can clearly see my ribs when lying down, they're quite prominant. I think it's fairly natural

when I lie down my ribcage is quite prominent but the actual ribs aren't particularly . and when I stand up my rib cage isn't very prominent at all (just a slight dip at the bottom of it)

When I lie down my ribs do stick out a little, but not that much. (Also the picture is freakishly thin, I hope you're not as thin as that!)

I think it's totaly normal, chillax it's cool.

Mine stick out a lot even though I'm nowhere near underweight, in fact when I stand up my stomach isn't even flat. It looks weird, you could almost count my ribs and my hipbones stick out as well. I think it looks ridiculously unattractive but it's obviously just the way my body is. I would have to put on several stone for them to not show.

I was just wondering if anyone else is like this?

They are pretty much like this (only when lying down though)

Mine stick out a little, not quite that much, but they always have. Hip bones too.

It's just natural for some girls! especially when you haven't eaten for a few hours and your stomach won't be distended. It has become less obvious for me since I started going to the gym more often so I think it might be a sign of underdeveloped abdominal muscles perhaps. If you don't like it maybe consider the gym! it's nothing to worry about though, no guy has ever been put off me when they see it, though generally they must have already been attracted to my figure anyway, I'm quite slim as it is, so perhaps they like that sort of thing.

I'm finding this hard to imagine.. I'm at the bottom end of healthy weight and my ribs don't stick out as much as shown in the photo but you're slightly overweight and it does?? :confused:
Maybe it's not as bad as you imagine? :dontknow:
