What's A Perfect Size?

Monday, October 13, 2008

Where does the media get off saying that Cheryl Burton a perfect size 4 with a realistic (curvy) body that she's getting fat?! I love her body for her but if she's fat, then I must be obese?! I know I still carry many pounds around but the fact of the matter that we in America must become realistic with a size that will make us happy. I know I wouldn't mind being a size 6 but I'm cool with an 8. What's your perfect size?

  I think thin is as beautiful as curvy. I know there are a lot of "curvy empowerment" women out there, but lets not forget the little guys born tiny with big hearts and minds too. They call me small yet mighty and I love my bony little bottom! I have been a size 6 with boobs but felt like I was walking too heavily for my taste and I've also been a size zero and felt oddly insubstantial. I sit right now at a 3. Mind you these are all according to American department stores whereas in Taiwan I'm considered a Medium instead of an extra small. And don't even get me started on the EU sizes and weight measurements they say what they are equivalent to in the US, and it never adds up. Numbers are just that. Numbers. Who really cares as long as your not a bitch. ;-)

    The perfect size to me is a nine. I was a size nine and I liked my shape. I was curvaceous and fit. I won't want to get so skinny that I look under nourished or bony. I want to look healthy and stacked. (smile)

    Lol, leave it to the media! I think they want all of us women to look like twelve year old boys!! So many little girls are worried about their weight these days and I blame a lot of that on the media! I'm deeply saddened and troubled by it! That being said, my average size is 3 because I am VERY small boned. Right now I am about a 5, and even though I look small, I also look soft. My fiancée works in the film industry and he's telling me that producers are starting to require actresses to gain weight! I'm so happy about that. I hope this boy thin craze passes soon! It's not even attractive! Curves are BEAUTIFUL!! It's what separates us from the boys, after all!

    When I first starting losing weight (before sp) I wore a size 20. Now I am a 14 I am pleased but because of health reasons I have to keep losing. Not because I want to be a size 4 of 6. Shoot I was a size 10 when I first got married. But after kids etc I am near 50. I would be pleased with a size healthier. If it is a 10 or 12 I will be happy with that. America concentrates on the outwards appearance too much. We also should concentrate on the inside too. I have come across some beautiful people but when they opened their mouth they became UGLY! I would rather be a beauty within that seeps to the outward.

    You have to be freaking kidding me that they said that!!!!! She is a FIT, FIT, FIT woman! I know that you guys have seen her dancing her @ss off on Dancing With the Stars!!!!! The people probably saying that she is fat are probably not happy with their size! This is teaching our daughters to hate their bodies. My seven year old was crying the other day and I asked her why and she replied,"Because my stomach is too big." I almost FAINTED. We have to watch what our girls hear. The media is ridiculous!!!!

The way that I am built, I think that I look my best at a size 4. I am a 6 now, but my belly/waist/whole midsection area needs LOTS of work!

    I have no clue what my "perfect size" is, but currently a 8. I think a 4, for my height and frame, will be where I land. I'm the same height as Toni Braxton, 5'2" (but I think she's too skinny).

    Hey Dee,
I get really annoyed when the media starts going on about celebraties who have great figures, but the media say they are fat. No wonder there is so many adults and kids with eating disorders.

My ideal size would be ( UK) 8-10, thats what i was pre-babies.
