    Depends on her height.
    comp agree, you can't generalise. someone who's 5"2 will look fine as a size 8, whereas someone who's a lot taller would look awful. someone who's 6ft & size 18 would look a lot slimmer than someone who's short & size 18.

    i think its better to be in between. no bones sticking out, but not too much fat either. for an average height (5"5-5"7 ish) girl our age i guess size 10-14 is the normal.
    for me (but i guess it might be diff from a guys opinion), u have to have hips of some description.i might complain about my figure regularly, but it'd be worse to be bigger at the shoulders than the hips!

    ummm, am I getting old? but surely it shouldnt be how a girl looks, shouldnt it be about personality, there other qualities? Whats the saying about dont judge a book by its cover??

    The most beautiful amongst us can be ugly on the inside, Im not saying size and looks dont make a difference, just that they shouldnt be the be all and end all.

    Dont think any one of us truly likes all we see when we look in the mirror, although do have to agree, we tend to be overly critical. All depends on how you take a compliment when its paid to you. What dont you like about yourself?

    Great things come in small packages?, I bet your nose is just right, your hair will be fine, your weight will be equally fine, your lips, knees O_o, skin will all be in harmony with the rest of you.

    You like your eyes thats a good start, at least you like something about yourself.

    I think to much emphasis is put on how a person looks, the billboard campaigns and other such advertising can put a lot of pressure on women (especially, but men to) that they have to be a size 10/12, perfect skin, 5ft 6, shiny hair, etc etc.

    Just for info, Marilyn Monroe was a size 16 and she was a success, well depending on what you call success :P

    I know exactly what you mean. I came up with a quote that summarised how I felt some years ago:

    "If you compliment me, I'll know you're lying."

    Since then, I've grown a lot more happier and confident with myself, with self-worth rising to very high levels. I still feel like that at times though...

    Too insecure. Especially emotionally.
