Well i think there should be a standard. If a BMI of over 25 is overweight then you should think the girls who have a BMI of 10 are TOO SKINNY...

This girl you can see her ribs its disgusting...

Im glad the EU is taking steps into correcting womans health

My husband tells me that he found me more attractive when I put on weight. Not just because I could sit over a meal and enjoy it with him but because he likes the curves and the softness of my body now. I think ultimately we will settle on a happy medium, lol.

That sad thing is, these images ARE everywhere and we start to see girls who are thinner and thinner averagely and the alternative appears to be obesity. I thing moderls should HAVE to fall with in the normal BMI as a industry standard. That way they are promoting clothes and being realistically aspirational.

They do! Less than 18 BMI is medically considered underweight i think.

BMI isn't too reliable tho, i'm just naturally have a tall and slender figure so my BMI 16 or 17, but i consider myself perfectly healthy (and like most of us here, have a love for food)

I don't think this is pretty at all. I had a devil of a time with my daughter, now 19 because of these "fashion plates". She is 6 feet tall,slender, glorious red hair which hangs in long ringlets naturally and photos like these made her feel fat and ugly. I don't know how it can be changed in the fashion world but I sure wish they would do something. I'm tired of not being able to find a tee shirt that covers my navel or jeans that cover my butt!
