    Ok so i wanted to know (as i am insecure) what you would consider an 'attractive' WEIGHT for a small-medium build 5ft5 girl? Please could you say whether you are male or female when you reply.

    I am interested in what the general answer will be and how todays society has impacted upon body image.

    Say no more. :facepalm: Everyone posting stuff like this is insecure anyways. I'm about 5'5 and I have a small-medium build. I'm guessing that anything from a B.M.I of 18.5 to 21 is ok. I'm assuming that you're a normal person, and not a bodybuilder or anything. I'm not sure if a small-medium framed person can carry a weight lower than a BMI of 18.5...

    With regards to the 'attractive' section, it's pretty impossible to tell. Generally if you look healthy and take care of yourself, you will be viewed as 'attractive'. That can be at any weight from 100 lbs to 140 lbs.

    It is really a good thing that some people are not that conscious about weight.

    Depends entirely on the frame/"build" of the girl. Whatever looks good on you.

    My god this is a pointless thread.

    Enough fat to be soft-looking and not boney but not so much fat that you have a stomach that sticks out = :coma:

    I'd say between 8-11 stone but this is a wild guess and depends on how much muscle you have etc..

    Jeeeez this is a terrible thread. Some people look good really thin, some look hideous. Some suit being heavier and other would just look like a big load of lard. It depends on the person. In general though if you're healthy than that should make you attractive.

    Um, just aim to look like a VC model or pussycat doll. To aim for a weight that will " Look good" is very hard without seeing you.

    As usual, factors other than how you look aren't a good way of measuring how good you look.

    We know you're 5'5'' and a small/medium build, but there are so many more factors that come into play that giving you a target weight and expecting that to be where you'll look your best is absurd. How wide are your hips compared to your waist? Where does your body naturally store extra fat? How much muscle do you have and what is it's distribution? Do you have large or small breasts for your frame? Do you have long legs relative to your torso? All these and more mean that weight alone is not a good way to tell you what will look good.

    Just to check, you are joking right? I'm guessing you are since you're one of the cool weightlifting for girls crowd.

    Good good. What always gets me the most about really skinny girls is how their legs are barely any wide at the top than just above the knee, so their thighs are barely there.
