    really? I'm pretty close to that (5'7 and 135ish) and I've never been smaller than a 5 (usually 7). the size zero's scare me a little, at least on girls older than 14.

    Where do you measure waist size? Pants are worn low enough that pant size is more like hip size...

    My chest, waist, and hips/butt are not around the same size though (33, 25, 37). I still got a ruler on that Gok thing based on my answers of having an average defined waist and average width hips (proportionately), flat tummy and small bust.

    I think it is a dig at thin women, because they always choose really skinny celebs as examples of the type.

    Well, she has smaller measurements than I do and I fit size 00-0 (and I am close to 20 lol) but you might be right.

    Probably. I've been hearing more and more crap spewed towards thin women lately. For some reason it's become ok to comment directly to thin women about their size the past couple years.

    I'm still an hour glass, just petite and short. People are always shocked when they see me nekkid.

    there's an obvious double standard there.. it's considered insensitive and rude to point out of someone is on the chubby side, but if they're on the thin side, it's somehow then fair game to joke about..?

    ooober scary thought:
    A US size zero equates to a UK size 4 (we're hard on ourselves over here)....

    By extrapolation:

    Chest = 28
    Waist = 22
    Hips = upto 31


    So REALLY unhealthy - most womens skeletons are bigger...

    Sorry a UK clothing store, but if you click on size link and scroll down to the thrid table you see the raw measurments (its a store that skewes towards very small fits).


    As for looking at women, I was once at a business thing and there was a few of us went into the bar pre dinner and the bar made had issues - she was clearly very anorexic, and looked awful... nothing glamerous about starving.

    How tall are you? You must pay a fortune on tailoring for a waist that small.

    Size zero and xxs was originally created for petite women (Under 5'4''). It became a trend for normal size women to fit into them as well. Thus, the companies saw a money making opportunity and took it.

    I have to wear 00, but I'm 4'10''.

    LOL - I love that

    I'd have had you pegged at 5 9 at least



    Ladies, just picking up some dots....

    Body shape is not directly proportioned to weight, you can be 18 stone and still be hour glass, or a ruler.... It's about shape....I know some of the descriptions say slim legs, but I think that's more relative to the rest of you.

    On self image, I was out in the pub a few weeks back with a lass who is heavy - not massively heavy but not a thing girl by any streach, and she was minorly obessed with her weight, allowed her last bf to treat her like crap because of it... etc. Reality is she is a lovely girl that just needs to meet a grown up guy who will do very well to have her (it really about her self esteem not her weight).

    An episode of House showed a guy who was trying to get taller and the life he had given himself... women wouldn't go out with him not because he was short but it was all he ever talked about... be at one with your shape - Dawn French is no skinny rake but she seems to have nailed her self image and chooses to enjoy her life and be very large....

    The answer is simple.

    If you don't have "off the rack" dimensions, buy clothes that a re a bit too big and take them to a tailor.

    Getting nice clothes that don't fit is stupid. If you know a good tailor it can make all the difference in the world. Simply taking in a men's business shirt and fitting the sleeves will make a man's waist look 10 pounds slimmer, his arms bigger, and his shoulders more broad.

    Even me, a 6'1" 235 pound bodybuilder looks like a fat slob in an off the rack business shirt. Once I take it to my tailor then I look like a lean mean corporate killing machine.
