Bonnie Says: Aren't You Sick Of Too Skinny Girls?

Posted Thu, February 17, 2011 4:07pm EDT

It’s been a double hit of diet-inducing beauties in our faces this week!

First, New York Fashion Week rolled out its runways and its models who look like they barely eat morsels. Then Sports Illustrated and its bevy of perfect skinnies in swimsuits hit the newsstands and the airwaves, with not a stomach roll or dimpled thigh in sight. All week we’ve had to look at tight, taut tummys, stick thin legs, arms barely bigger than insect tentacles and perky perfect cleavage. It’s enough to make any normal-weight woman feel fat!

Why can’t Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue have some models who have Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, or Beyonce curves? Why can’t designers showcase their catwalk clothes on models who have a J.Lo pear shape or fuller figure like Christina Hendricks?

We, the women who will ultimately buy those clothes, think these women are gorgeous. We aspire to look like them, not like the androgynous sticks on the Fashion Week runways!

So tell me Hollywoodlifers — how do you feel? Would you rather look like skinny Brooklyn Decker or curvy Kim Kardashian? Or like the pin thin Angelina Jolie or muscular Jen Aniston? Tell us now!

If you think Brooklyn Decker is “skinny”,you need to get back to reality. She happens to be curvy. Just as KImk is.

Well the catwalks need to pay attention to what’s happening in society. Curvy women should be represented on the catwalk I’m less likely to buy clothes that fit only stick thin girls. Too bad they don’t realize that curvy girls have wallets too. And by the way. Curvy doesn’t mean fat! I have a natural hourglass figure and I exercise not to stay thin but to keep fit. I’m lucky to have nice curves and a good metabolism but I’m not supermodel thin. I was when I was 16 but I’m a mature woman in my early 30’s now I want to see clothes to fit me that are fun. And I’m not seeing that on the runway.

Wow. Isn’t this a biased article. “Do you prefer women pin thin or healthy and curvy?” That’s not very fair. All of those women on the runways have natural boyish frames. That is HEALTHY if it is natural. Yes, some of them might need to eat a little, but I can tell you that there are also many people in this world who have minimal curves like these models, such as myself.
I swear, I cannot gain or lose pounds even if I wanted to. Not that I would do the latter because I enjoy eating. It’s just my Asian genes. I have incredible metabolism and that is all NATURAL, so it is HEALTHY.
I hope you realize that there are not just only curvy women in real life. There is a mixture of curvy and skinny and everything in between. The runways just only show ONE SIDE of society.

personally, when girls say healthier curves look better it seems like an excuse to be lazy. if curves are in, they don’t have to work hard

I’m tired of people assuming girls who are skinny starve themselves. If you are fat and need to tell yourself to make you feel better, than i feel sorry for you. yall keep saying there are many different body types and skinnny is one of them! I can pack down more than girls who are 30-40 pounds bigger than me. Stop bringing skinny girls down to make yourself feel better! there are alot of girls who are naturally skinny – ALOT.
