Ideal Body Type thread? Anonymous 1672
What's your ideal body type, anons?
Are you into being thin, or curvy, or maybe fit? Were you born a cone shape but long to be a pear? Or maybe you're a banana but would rather be an hourglass?
I'd like to hear your opinions and what you're doing to get there!
I'm a fucking rectangle/banana/column and I loathe it. No tits, no ass, no hips, no waist. Literally the worst.
I've accepted the fact that I can't change my anatomy and it really does suck, especially when I want to wear cute dresses and they just hang off weirdly etc.
I've started going to the gym like a year ago, gained some weight and now I've got nice defined legs, big plump ass and look really thin from the side. So take that anatomy!
I like my body. I can appreciate other bodies (except fatties, but I won't make fun of them or comment on their weight or anything), but my ideal body is an idealized version of mine, precisely because it could be me one day, if that makes any sense.
I'm a pear that looks like a banana, but isn't (narrow hips and small chest, thighs are the widest part of my body, shoulders wider than average so they balance out the thighs). Thankfully my waist is a bit pinched in but I'm a former skinnyfattie so it wasn't as visible before.
I have a similar body to pic related, and I've been told I would've made a good ballerina but I'm a sperg with the grace of a narwhal and don't like walking around with a cane in my 30s because my knees are busted like my aunt does.
I did figure skating for a while and now I do pilates and swim. It's going well, my stomach is getting flatter and flatter and my arms look nice.
I have an fit hourglass body shape, with the "perfect" hip to waist ratio, which seems to be "ideal" but it's a fucking pain in the ass to dress if you like being comfortable.
Baggy shirt? Congrats you look fatter than you are! Loose dress? You look pregnant!
I also happen to have corgi legs, so it's even worse. My body type is very similar to Keira knightley's, but i have a bit of a smaller waist and bigger hips and thighs since i work out a lot. I really wish i had longer legs, then i would be completly comfortable in my body but it's not like i can lenghten them so i gotta deal. I also hate wearing heels and prefer sneakers and stuff like that which is difficult to pull of with short legs.
I like any body type that is not fat, but i particularly find fit/lean (not overly muscle-y) women to be incredible attractive. I also really like long legs, maybe because i'm salty i don't have them.
Just a start _043a…
I know it doesn't mean much, but I've always loved banana shapes! My sister is a banana (surprise! she also hates her shape), but she looks so good in everything, and she looks very fit even when she isn't working out or doing anything. One of the issues is that we're black, so we're expected to be stupidly curvy and we just aren't, so we have a really bad complex about it lol. But I've always seen bananas as super classy and look good in most things.
I'm an inverse triangle, but I really wish I was a pear. I could start as a linebacker for the Falcons, my shoulders are so broad, and my tits are unnecessarily large, too. I was planning on a reduction, but I looked at a bunch of after photos and they always look even more broad once their breasts are reduced! At least a flat chest can get implants. I can't really shave off my shoulders.
I lift so I can at least have a semblance of ass, but at the end of the day, my hips are straight up and down and it doesn't look all that cute to me. I've gotten better with it in the last few years, but I still keep an "ass fund" in case I decide I want to get butt/hip implants.
I want to be shaped like the wakfu women :( I want to be Evangelyne.
Samefag, but I also need to come to terms with and get over the fact that a large portion of my ass/hip insecurity comes from my culture's obsession with it. I remember being in middle school and seeing my shape develop and looking at others and being unsatisfied because I knew that wasn't the shape that was "sexy" or valued. I guess that's a work in progress, but I don't see myself getting over it any time soon.
That's gorgeous. I'm glad your body goals are going well! I want to get to the point where, mentally, that's what I'm strive for, as well (instead of idolizing other body types I know I can't have). Seeing your waist reveal itself as you loss fat is the most motivating thing in the world. Is swimming good for building muscle, or is it mostly cardio?>>1675
I know your feel about the shirt and dresses thing. I cannot wear an empire waist dress without looking extremely pregnant. And the only good thing about my body type (having a relatively flat stomach with ease) is completely erased with big tshirts. I immediately gain 20 lbs.
Sneakers look really nice in short legs, I think. It makes you look more athletic (if you enjoy that?), so don't take it too hard, anon!
I'm attracted to smaller chested women, and I can't tell if it's because I don't have that, or if I'm genuinely attracted to them. Attraction is strange.
I'm a rectangle, skinny af with long limbs, and overall I like my body but I feel a lot of pressure from outside sources to change it. It's super in to be thicc rn and I'm probably the exact opposite of that. I like how that body type looks, but it's not for me and I don't have the hips to ever be that. I don't have much in way of an ass, either. My boobs are decent, I think, small but cute. I would like to get a slightly perkier butt, though.
The perks are that I find that most things tend to fit me, save for bodycon dresses, which I don't like anyway.
I'm shorter and skinnier than average (actually slightly underweight I think) and while I have relatively large hips, I'm flat-chested, I feel like it would have been better if I were completely flat (more convenient) or if I had bigger breasts (more options for clothes). I don't mind have my body, although I wish I were taller, but the reason why I'm short is because my pituitary gland is all fucked up and I had to get some treatment to grow up like a normal person. So I'm at least grateful I'm not a literal dwarf. As long as I'm healthy I don't care.
I don't like how people tend to assume I'm a teenager and talk to me they way they would to a high-schooler when I'm about to be 23 though.
I'm jelly of tiny girl bodies. I call it sorority girl bodies? It's the super petite, naturally small body types.
I'm fit/averagemode and while I can lose weight and be visibly thinner, my natural frame is pretty wide (reverse triangle and thick thighs from longtime sports) so I will never be a tiny girl that guys can easily pick up and envelop.
Same, anon. Are you tall too? I feel like short girls (sometimes average girls too) can still look cute/petite/tiny without actually being thin/even having wider frames, simply by standing next to other people. And they pull off the oversized look so well, when it makes me look heavier and sloppy. They also can get away with wearing heels more, which I'm jealous of as well.
It makes me feel very masculine when I have to look down at other girls to talk to them and being eye-level with guys. :/
>>1681>I'm fit/averagemode and while I can lose weight and be visibly thinner, my natural frame is pretty wide (reverse triangle and thick thighs from longtime sports) so I will never be a tiny girl that guys can easily pick up and envelop.
Holy shit, anon, are you me? I have a large frame as well, and it makes me so self conscious. I look skelemodo at a higher weight than I'd like, and I still look big compared to smaller framed women. It fucking sucks.
I'm a pear and have mixed feelings about it. Pic related is pretty much me.
I'm blessed with a perfectly flat stomach, thin arms and calves, small feet, and I'm short. Depending on how I dress, I can look skinny (in a skirt that flares out at the waist to hide my hips and thighs) or thicc (if I stuff my boobs hardcore to balance out my thighs).
Cons: I look super awkward in anything form-fitting, since all my fat is stored in my thighs. It looks bizarre. Like you built a skinny person in The Sims and then went crazy on the thigh dial. I haven't worn pants in years because they make me look like a tiny disproportional person. They make my torso look really, really long and my legs really short. I can wear an XS for my upper body, but everything that touches my thighs has to be at least M-L. But I also have weird legs so that means I wear tights, pantyhose or leggings every. single. day. Whenever a "practical" event is coming up, like hiking or urban exploration, at least one person pulls me aside to remind me to wear something "sensible" like they expect me to turn up in an ankle-length fishtail skirt and five inch heels. I've never not worn something sensible to these things unless I was roped along spontaneously and there was no time to change. I'm just not always prepared for adventure.
Plus, nothing makes up for having an ugly face :')
I like my body. I'm blessed with having almost no body image issues at all.
I'm petite but I have quite wide hips. My butt is nicely shaped, however it could be muuuuch better if I worked out so I want to try getting into it eventually to be extra sexy for my bf. I used to dislike my violin hips but when I wear clothes nobody cares and my boyfriend says he likes my body so I don't worry about it.
I'd like to be fitter but I'm a lazy fuck and since I'm naturally quite thin I don't have too much incentive to start.
This is my body type. I'm short, and always considered it kinda average looking, but thanks anon. I appreciate knowing that there are anons who like this look.
I like my height and my build. I'm a short hourglass with large breasts, small waist, and wide hips. The only thing I'd like to do is lose more weight so my body can become perfect tbh.
My general aesthetic is petite, strong, but also curvy and womanly too.
It helps that I'm more muscular than your average girl my height and weight, mainly because of my ethnicity, my genetics, and the fact I'm way more active.
The only thing that sucks is that I get left out from petite girl discussions. For some reason people always think (thin-to-average weight) petite women are flat chested and small assed. It's very annoying.
I mean, you pretty much have the perfect figure, I think you can stand to not be involved petite girl discussions.
I'm pretty rectangular and flat but I'm ok with it, just happy I'm not a fatty.
Pear here, I'm shaped pretty much like the wafka's girl you posted. I personally love my body type but I constantly get berated by other women about my smaller breasts. I'm a 32C and I always have friends or acquaintances talk about how 'perfect' my body is other than the lack of breasts. It is a pain. That said it's easy enough to stuff, but I totally hate the ridiculous notion that my body is 'incomplete'
Since when is 32C considered lack of breasts? lol And your friends and acquaintances sound like creeps.
>posted a full body shot of me on instagram yesterday, had never done that before ever
>look back at it today
>notice my legs look weirdly thin
I've never seen them this thin when looking in the mirror and it feels weird. I don't know if it's just the picture or if I have a warped vision of my own body. Not displeased but confused as hell.
I have had this happen too. There are some small factors that might be at play, like having different posture when you look in the mirror versus when you pose, but also cameras lenses (including the default ones on phones) can also make you look wider or thinner. I do think there is also a mental component for me though.
I don't even know mang. I have days where I want to be a lithe, vulnerable waif, an insatiably T H I C C succubus, or a glistening, muscular she-beef.
Anybody else ktf?
Absolutely. I've been struggling with this for years now and sadly I can't have all of it.
But I decided to go for "thick"-ish, after that I can slim down if I want to.
The worst/or funnies (imo) part is that I'm column shaped (so no small waist), I gain like a pear but I don't have wide hips lol
Most of them are female so…
In any case I feel like they're pretty small but I also know my friends are likely just used to the push-up hourglass style girls. Pears get a bad rap generally.
Yes! It's ridiculous because I will see someone with a thick body and think "I want to look like that", and the next week will see someone with a very thin body and think the same thing. It's like a never-ending pendulum.
Eugh yeah I totally feel you. Like I know
I'm on the smaller size of clothing and definitely fall into the thin category, but because of my broad frame I always look so much heavier/bigger than my female counterparts. I have a friend who is my height and weighs like 20lbs more than me but because she has a tiny frame and it goes to her ass/thighs she looks so much tinier and in photos she looks like a waif and I look like I've been bulking.
I've thought about corset training to bring down my measurements a bit, but it's so pricey and isn't guaranteed to work/you have to keep up with it for years.
Goal body is kinda like this.
Nice toned tummy and but big butt/boobs.
I have an hourglass shape with a defined waist/big boobs which I like, however I have some loose skin which sucks. My ideal body type would basically be a better version of my own, I also wish I was a little bit shorter too as being tall I feel I can't wear heels as much and don't feel "cute" at times.
My thighs (and butt, but to a lesser degree) is super thicc, and when I gain weight, all the fat tends to be stored in that area. It sucks though, because my waist is quite wide, and I look ridiculous. I have no idea what shape I am - definitely not a pear because my shoulders are quite wide too. It's weird.
Pic related is my goal for 2018. I'm a pear who's naturally both large-boned chubby and my goal is to lose some weight so as to make my big bones not make me look like a hambeast, but since i think bodies with a little more "meat" are ideal, i do not have any intentions of getting too thin.
That's a rly rly rly cute body type, Anon. Good luck, you can do it!
I'm super tall and built large, as an adult I'm finally starting to accept I'll never be ~smol~. I'm ridiculously top heavy (E cups are the worst, people see me as walking tits) with huge thighs and no butt.
I'm working on building muscle right now so I can take advantage of my size rather than despising it. I don't want bodybuilder frame; I'd have to do an insane amount of cutting for that to ever happen. But defined abs and biceps would be so nice!
>tfw you start losing weight only to find out that you have no hips and no waist
just fuck me up famalam.
in an ideal world, i really wish i had a cute, slender petite body like iiniku ushijima.
why must the world me so cruel.
There's always hope anon
You can gain muscle and slightly change your body shape
You can look like a powerful Amazon warrior, with the right training! Also it helps to learn how to dress your body.
I'm short, with narrow violin hips, skinny limbs and neck, and the stockiest thighs and torso known to man + a small chest. I call it the "athletic male hobbit body". I used to hate it because it's decidedly unsexy and unfeminine, but I've since learned how to dress myself better and it makes a world of difference. The key was embracing my features instead of trying to 'feminise' them. Sure I dress a bit masculine now, but it looks a lot better than ill-fitting dresses made for tall, well-endowed ladies.
I have a big butt but no hips. It's tragic. I just wish I had more of a balance. I look great in some clothes from the front but my ass just makes everything tent-y from the side. Then if I look ok from the side it looks weird in the front.
Are you black by any chance?
I think I've found that my ideal body is however I am. I'm not super insecure about my weight or height anymore, though I'm pretty pleased when I can gain a few pounds.
For other girls, I like dating shorter, chubby types.
Similar goals are to Lights, I used to be fit and in shape then gained close to 100 pounds during college. I love her body shape.
I wish I could be like this. Not fat lol but like enjoy whatever body I have, enjoy being fat enough to be like LOOK AT MY BELLY! and eat whatever food I want, maybe find a boyfriend with a feeder fetish kek. Unfortunately I'm unhappy with my body and yoyo diet. I couldn't even imagine showing my body to he opposite sex no no no no
Same t b h.I should be happy of the body I have but I just fucking hate it.
I have a weird body shape. My abdominal muscles are thick and my whole body (including my facial features) is just kind of fleshy. I don't like being more wider built than other girls but what can I do? My calves and thighs are pretty nice and muscular I guess.
I wish my torso was narrower and more of a delicate and angular look. You know?
Saaame. I always have a profound admiration with anyone who's just okay with themselves. Like, "how the fuck do you do it?" Lemme cop some of that confidence lol.
Something like this is my ideal.
I don't even know what my body type is tbh. I just want to be loooooong and lean. I'm attempting to lose the weight I've gained in the last two years so hopefully I can get closer to this. Yoga will probably help stretch me out too.
Seeing this makes me happy bc this is quite close to my body type, though my boobs are slightly smaller. My ideal is thin and petite though, I think.
how can I figure out my body type?
I am around 4'9'' but I have pretty broad shoulders. I have an A cup normally (I am breastfeeding rn and have a C cup because of it) and my hips are slightly smaller than my shoulders. My legs are very curvy and my butt has a bit of curve as well compared to my mosquito tits.
I kind of feel like a failed petite woman because the majority of women my height are all super slim up and down compared to me where I have the shoulders of a line backer and calves of an amazonian warrior.
You measure yourself to find out and look at some charts. From what you said it sounds like you could be an inverted triangle or banana?
I'm the same anon, I would be an hourglass if only my hips were bigger. I'm frustrated because I wish there was a workout that only targeted my hips (I'm scared of toning my butt fat, I want it to stay lol). >>1710
I don't know about the person you were replying to, but I'm white and have the same issue.
I wish there was surgery to reduce shoulder width. I will measure mine again, but I hate being an inverted triangle with average perky breasts, a small defined waist, okay hips, a nice, rounded butt, and then the goddamn shoulders ruin my body image. I'm sure if I didn't have them I'd still hate my body, but christ. I have so much envy when I see girls that are of average weight but they still look curvy because they at least have hips. If I gained weight, I'm scared it will go to my stomach.
I feel you on that one.
I even considered waist training to "fix" the problem but I don't trust it. It would probably have to be a steel bone corset to actually work.
My ideal body shape is whatever I see when I look in the mirror. I used to wish to be skinnier or more petite or taller but honestly, I don't think a different body would suit me any better or make me happier.
Obviously my body is not perfect. My shoulders are kind of broad, I'm short but don't have a petite frame, my boobs are tiny and my waist could be smaller but I've learned to be okay with myself.
I don't want to go on unnecessary diets just to change my body since I'm not overweight and don't have super unhealthy eating habits anyway. I work out regularly but it's not very appearance oriented, I just want to be stronger and better at the sports I love to do and if I become better looking in the process, that's just a nice plus.
Please teach us anon how you have gotten to that point…
I actually have no idea because when I was younger I fiercely hated my body and did everything I could to change it.
I guess a big part of it was moving 7 hours away from my hometown and starting a new chapter of my life. Living alone has given me time to come to terms with who I am and how I look like. I've also learned to genuinely love sports and got into a sport where everyone's bodies are appreciated amd theres no need to fit into a certain mold of being super fit or thin or anything like that.
I want a really small frame. Right now I'm basically there (31-22.5-33) but my ribcage is huge. I've been doing lots of leg/glute workouts to balance out how it looks.
I got this way through not eating over 1000 kcal a day. You really don't need any extra. I was able to keep up with my studies and extracurriculars at the same time.
>>1731>22.5">my ribcage is huge
Unless you're like 4'11"-5'3" that really doesn't compute. That's a tiny measurement Anon.
I'm 5'2", so it does look rather disgusting
>>1731>I got this way through not eating over 1000 kcal a day. You really don't need any extra. I was able to keep up with my studies and extracurriculars at the same time.
is this bait
I actually know what she means as I have a waist measurement of 23 and am 5'4'' but my ribcage is larger though my waist is small. although the fact they're restricting calories makes it seem like something is amiss with that anon.
Can you guys possibly post an example pic? I'm curious to know what this looks like.
Now I'm curious too.
Are you guys talking about something similar to a inverted triangle? Large ribcage, small waist and narrow hips?
At least that's the idea I get since >>1731
said they train their legs.
This is the original anon. here is a pic from a while back (so I am a bit smaller now). you can see how large my ribcage is
My waist-to-hip ratio is really good, but my chest is like a barrel. also please excuse the lower-belly pudge in >>1738
lol, I hadn't even thought of working out at that point. but yeah it is a very unfortunate body type. does anyone have experience using waist trainers to compress their ribcage a bit?
This looks normal to me, I don't see a large ribcage at all. I'm hesitant to compliment you since this almost seems like fishing, but you look genetically blessed.
Yeah, looks normal to me too, atleast from the side angle posted. And naturally if you have your arms raised like that it'll make you look wider but you can barely notice it here.
What is your body type? From the front?
Because I look the same from the side but rather wide from the front lol. And no, your chest isn't that big, it's average.
And that pudge is also normal. I think people keep forgetting that we humans store our organs there.>>727
idk if i were you i'd be more worried about the lack of ass
This model is sucking her waist in, but it looks like this (I think this is what the anon who posted a photo meant)
An example of where the ribs don't jut out:
I know it's in a corset, but still.
Thanks for the compliment I guess. Maybe it wasn't a good photo in terms of illustrating what I was talking about. >>1743
From the front I actually look more "normal". From the side is where I see how big my ribcage is >>1744
lol I know, I've since started working out beyond cardio a whole lot more. >>1745>>1746
yes, this is exactly what I mean!
You look normal though, anon? Your ribcage doesn't seem large at all
, the girl on the right >>1746
has a big ribcage.
Do you have BDD?
Her ass looks good to me, considering her proportions. I have literally no ass, so… t r i g g e r e d.
maybe i just posted a bad picture? I haven't been diagnosed with BDD. here is another one that I think shows it better.
Get therapy because you have an ideal body.
Just stop, anon. Nobody agrees that you have the massive ribcage you think you have.
You look gross but not because of your rib cage lol
you can see it near the top of the image, its almost like having a hunchback. regardless I will stop posting since people appear to be upset>>1754
what else looks gross?
I'm the anon who posted the example pics and you in no way have big ribs. It looks like you have practically none.
I actually do have jutting out ribs as you can see here. I don't work out at all, so yeah, I hate my waist and although it looks huge it's somehow 23 inches? I want to work it out so it can get nice and slim. I wish my ass was bigger, but I'm scared that if I work it out that it'll shrink when it gets toned. My boobs are around 33-34 inches and I hate them so much for being so small. Any other critiques are welcome. I have big ugly shoulders so any help on getting my hips to be bigger is appreciated, too.
(sorry, i had to get out all my problems with my body out at once)
>>1757>I'm scared that if I work it out that it'll shrink
It won't if you build up muscle.
>getting my hips to be bigger
That one's hard and can't really be done
Not going to say you need a therapist, but you should accept yourself as you are. You anatomy is the way it is, nothing can change that.
And raising your arms makes your ribs stick out, yeah. You look normal, chill.
Can you guys post frontal pics because all these side angles don't show anything. I'm just seeing thin girls angling for more noticeable ribcages and seems creepily heading towards anachat tbh.
Here is a girl with an actual wide rib cage that sticks out. You see how even though she loses weight above her waist there is a noticeable width change? That's a broad/wide ribcage.
Being anorexic wouldn't make my body any more attractive. It's very asymmetrical.
Here is a front view (better viewed in another tab):
I had to really be picky here but I think I know what you mean, like a barrel-type thing?
Tbh you look fine and it is super nitpicky. You have good posture it seems too. I've recently started corsetting for my ribs, you could do that too?
I have a rectangle shape, but I can't ever decide if I actually like my size or not. I know the "in" thing is wide hips and a big ass, but I have neither of those. Sometimes I remember that I'm fortunate enough not to be fat, but other times I'm envious of thicc girls. I'm underweight now, but my boyfriend tries to encourage me to go to the gym and eat a lot of protein so I can gain. But then again, he likes my size either way. I just can't win.
I really, really like being muscular and want to be more. I love the way it looks and feels to be genuinely fucking stronk as well as looking fit. My ideal would be to have more muscle fullness and lower body fat but still enough bodyfat to keep my boobs and look natty.
Sarah Russert is pretty much my ideal for myself, she's just a lot shorter than me. I also love the way Julia Vins and Stephanie Davis look, but I can't see myself being able to become as huge as Julia or have the proportions and low bf of Stephanie, so Sarah is more of what I like to think is a reasonable goal.
Saaame, I just wish it was easier for women to gain muscle mass. :(
i hate that women will sabotage their own strength out of fear of being 'bulky' when it's hard af to be bulky when you try.
making major strength gains isn't too hard though!
I eat relatively healthy, don't eat processed foods, small portions, but I can't seem to get past being a pudgy skinnyfat. Do you guys think a ketogenic diet might work for me? I just want a leaner and firmer body with minimal flab. I'm going to look into possibly integrating some sort of exercise but I find it much easier for me to focus on my diet.
I think exercising is a better thing to start with. If you barely have muscle under the fat then you can keep losing and still look skinnyfat if that makes sense. If you get a base going you can have the same amount of bodyfat and still look leaner
If you want to go from skinnyfat to lean/a built you're going to have to bring in exercise. It doesn't have to be like crazy but a couple of days of cardio and maybe one or two types of sports should tone you right up!
Basically the rule of thumb is eating healthy keeps the pounds away but exercise is what tones you up.
something like this is my ideal. she looks so healthy
I want to be stick-thin with long limbs. Unfortunately I'm short (5'2") so I have to just settle for being stick-thin.
I'm 5'4'', have broad shoulders, am currently in the mid 90s, my lowest weight was 90 lbs, and I hate to tell you, but getting thin only makes you look more broad shoulders. I lose weight in my boobs and legs first and my face last, I fucking hate it. If only I didn't have these damned, cursed shoulders, I'd be an hourglass. If I were taller, I might look elegant. But no, I'm average height, "thin", and I don't even look that thin, more like average weight. Fuck my life.
I am 5'05" and 110 pounds.
i am build like a skinny dwarf, short legs, straight body and small breasts.
As many i hate my body. I would love to have a hourglass figure. They are so beautiful and feminine.
I find very muscular or obese people unattractive, or people who do surgery to look different.
I am very against beauty surgery.
I think we need to learn that we are different and accept it.
Even when i am struggling like hell. But i hope one day i find my body okay.
I think all body types can be nice, I couldn't choose any over another because to me it's like comparing apples and oranges.
As for my own body - I would not like to have a different body type because it would not be me, it would not suit my personality. But of course there are a few details I would change about my body - I would like a smaller waist or bigger hips (so that there's like a nice indent to my waist lol idk how to describe it. It's a little too straight right now) and I would like my upper arms to be a bit thinner.>>4007
I agree with you about beauty surgery. I think it's really creepy that people would cut out parts of their body or insert strange objects under their skin in order to look different and (for many) to conform to society's ideas of how someone should look…
I'm a pear from the waist down (I have broad shoulders, so not a true pear) with short legs and hip dips. I used to hate my body in the early 2000s and it's still far from society's ideal now due to my flat chest and proportions.
In recent years I've come to terms with it though, and my ideal is just to become muscular. Not cut and shredded, but sturdy looking.
I already got my ideal body type, but my legs are too short and I have a lot of scars in my body.
I'm a pearshape and I used to hate it when I was a kid. I was overweight and people would call me fat (one time a man yelled insults at me from a truck) because you couldn't see my body shape. Then I lost weight and people would think I was older and see me as a sex object.
I always wanted to be skinny, I have never been skinny but I am getting there. I no longer care how men look at me, it's my body, it belongs to me, I shouldn't have to worry about people saying things to me. My dad told me when I was younger that I should not be ashamed of how I dress, he told me older men should be ashamed of looking at teenage girls.
I still don't like my body, not all of it, I still want to be skinny, but I am thankful I have a good hip-to-waist ratio, and I don't mind having A cups or being tall. It's the way I am. I also like having small shoulders. I am not perfect but I'm not aiming to be perfect, I want to like myself.
Don't worry. Being thin will always be in fashion and a beauty standard. This thicc trend is just fat girls capitalising on dumb rap trends.
Pretty much a leaner version of the golden era Hollywood/pinup girl body. I’m already blessed with an hourglass figure and big boobs, just need to work on getting a toned stomach/bigger butt
I'm honestly not sure what my body type is…I've obsessed over it for so long that I'm just completely dysphoric and unable to see how I really look, but to me I'm hideous. I have a hormonal disorder that the doctors can't seem to figure out, causing hair in certain unwanted places (under chin, on stomach) that I'm currently treating with medication but it's taking forever to go away. I have a wide ribcage, long torso, shorter legs. I'm 5'8-5'10 and I feel I have no hips or barely any shape to my body, like there's slight curve but nothing crazy. I think I have some sort of tuberous breast issue because my breats are a bit odd…small, more top heavy with no underboob and larger areolae (I'm VERY insecure about this). I have been overweight most of my life and I kinda lost it and became anorexic dropping 60 pounds in like 3 months. continued trying to lose weight with diet and exercise but just plateued and mainly lost my ass more than anything which was like my only good attribute. Now I'm desperately trying to eat a certain diet and do specific workouts to lose weight and build my butt back up. It' super frustrating to have such a strict diet and exercise regimine and be so blinded by your own hatred for yourself and immediately expecting to see the worst when you look in the mirror and never seeing what you actually look like. It feels like I can't and wont ever be truly beautiful because my body meets nowhere near the beauty standards of today. Basiclly just trying to get thin enough and save enough money for some surgery!

Much of history disagrees.
im inverted triangle. i hate it and wish i was almost any shape other than it, but i mostly just wish i had hips. i always waited growing up, sort of excitedly that i would finally look more 'feminine', and as i aged i realised that i was never going to get them. now i still have small hips and wide shoulders and it makes me embarrassed of how masculine and stumpy i look, because i'm quite short too
muscular women isn't what the general population finds attractive and i don't even know if this is acheivable for women without roids but to me this is the ideal body type.
I follow her, too. She's gorgeous. I can't believe she is pregnant now. I don't know if she's my ideal, but her body type is certainly interesting.
She looks like she’s on something, her muscles are too round looking.
Thank you! I’ve been searching for her name, but I only had one image that didn’t produce good results when reverse image searched. She’s so pretty. I wonder what it feels like to have that kind of muscle…. or to cuddle with her haha
there's certainly no way this is natural, but for people like her it's less about fitness and more about shaping their own body into a work of art.
These women weren't depicted as being thicc with wide hips/small waist/flat stomach/no rolls. Completely different imo
What do you mean "they weren't depicted as being thicc". We see significant curves.
Some might say that women who think like you just can't grow nice round sexy butt so they try to make themselves feel better.
Also as a person who majored in World History and IR, I'm telling you that being thin wasn't always a beauty standard. In Ancient and Medieval times across the world it pretty much always was considered sickly and a sign of poverty. Plus, we saw beauty standards change again and again so I don't know what you are talking about.
I don't quite understand why you guys try to make life harder for yourself by buying into beauty standards and revolving your life around achieving an "ideal body type" which doesn't exist. Do you WANT to suffer of body dysphoria because society tells you that you should or otherwise you wouldn't be accepted as human beings? Fuck em then, no?
What an absolute waste of a pretty face.
She's saying "flat stomach". She means like the weird photoshop instagram "thicc" look with ballooned thighs and ass and a teeny waist, not just curvy/natural women.
My ideal body type. I'm the complete opposite of it.
As a teenager, I was okay with my body but I've become aware since then that my shape is not grown-up and feminine enough for an adult woman.
I feel like a failure of a woman because femininity means to have soft, round curves with ample hips. The only feminine thing about me are my cushy thighs and even they are too small. But If I gained weight, I'd just look like a chubby blob due to my short height and fat distribution and not a nice curvy lady.
I think I'd be okay with my body if I was either obviously pear-shaped (because bigger hips and butt = feminine) by nature or significantly taller to counter the perception that people with my body type look like underdeveloped teenagers.
Anyone else have the same body type as tuna-chan? Like big, not fat, just male-shaped.
If so how do you cope? because i feel like shit every day when looking at the mirror… I hate how manly i look, i feel like a giantess next to normal girls
Are you talking about that cosplayer with pink ribbons wrapped around her body?
You’re not a failure of a woman because of your natural body type. A woman is a woman whether she’s stick thin, a curvy hourglass, or even an apple or whatever other shape she was born into.
I understand though. I used to want to be like the big, curvy girls that were in my classes in high school. This was before thicc was a thing, too. There is
something about that body type that just seems “womanly.” Maybe it comes from the image of a motherly woman? idk
If you're normal weight or thinner, are you sure you're not misperceiving yourself? For some reason when I look in the mirror I just look huge despite being size s/xs, I just can't comprehend how my massive ribcage and wide shoulders could look slender or feminine. But when I see photos taken from further away my body seems totally different. When we see ourselves in a mirror I think our mental interpretation of our proportions can be a bit inaccurate because the mirror is so close to us, and it's easy to focus on the largest parts and how huge they seem instead of the full picture.
tbh I don’t really have a definition. It’s such a broad concept.
I'm sure i'm not because in the mirror, i seem normal, but in pictures i do look like a man. I stick out like a sore thumb in group photos because every girl is less large/have narrower shoulders and upper body, even the ones much fatter than me. It sucks and i feel like hiding myself and never leaving the house.
I'm not the one with the history degree here, but surely the reason for thinness being associated with the poor, and bigger woman being glorified, was because of the inaccessibility of food for those with less money? Even if you are poor nowadays, you can afford to be obese. Thinness is now associated with an abstinence from the convenience of food, which can seem desirable as it is increasingly becoming a rarer sight to see.
Daily reminder that you can comfortably ignore what body type scrotes are into, since most of them will be into a wide variety and not be as picky as you think.
Pretty much this, imo as far as being seen attractive to women or men the best thing you can do is be the most put together version of yourself
What's the point of scrotes being into your body type if you yourself don't like your own body type? If every time you look into the mirror you wished you looked different for your own satisfaction?
That body type is gross and borderline obese. Stop obsessing over an unhealthy lifestyle.
This is what men mean by curvy. Hopelesssofrantic is there epitome of modern beauty standards. Don't cope by saying that noble women were preferred in the past the rich will always be seen as more desirable than the poor and thus the traits they display will be seen as desirable we don't live in the 15th century anymore.
Thank you anon. As I always say: men are stupid and will fuck anything. >>8587
Attention, validation, and preferential treatment are the only reasons I can see. All of these reasons are dumb because of my above statement but I can see how these little quality of life things would cause another women who believes she doesn’t have much else going for her to seek male approval.
Are the two women in >>8510
borderline obese, too? I genuinely find body types like those attractive and want to look like that.
Ignore here anon. Ana-chan is doing a cope. As long as your doctor says you’re healthy and that’s what you want, go for it.
Gym bunny but quarantined for 4 months
It's not just about having some excess fat but having a robust and healthy body in general. That was the beauty standard.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Letter_of_P%C3%AAro_Vaz_de_Caminha>Pêro Vaz de Caminha (c. 1450 – 15 December 1500; Portuguese pronunciation: [ˈpeɾu ˈva(ɪ)ʒ ðɨ kɐˈmiɲɐ], Brazilian Portuguese: [ˈpeɾu ˈva(j)z dʒi kɐˈmĩɲɐ]; also spelled Pedro Vaz de Caminha) was a Portuguese knight that accompanied Pedro Álvares Cabral to India in 1500 as a secretary to the royal factory. Caminha wrote the detailed official report of the April 1500 discovery of Brazil by Cabral's fleet (Carta de Pêro Vaz de Caminha, dated 1 May, 1500). He died in a riot in Calicut, India, at the end of that year. >In his letter to Manuel I of Portugal, Pêro Vaz de Caminha gives what is considered by many today as being one of the most accurate accounts of what Brazil used to look like in 1500.
>They are brown skinned, of a quite reddish complexion, with handsome faces and noses, nicely shaped. They go about naked, without any type of covering. They do not bother to cover their bodies, and show their private parts as readily as they show their faces. In this matter they are of great innocence. >they are well groomed and very clean. And in that aspect, I am convinced they are like birds, or mountain animals, to whom the air gives better feathers and hair than those of their domesticated counterparts, because their bodies are as clean and as plump and as beautiful as could be! >They only eat this yam (referring to manioc, then unknown to the Europeans), which is very plentiful here, and those seeds and fruits that the earth and the trees give of themselves. Nevertheless, they are sturdier, and sleeker than we are despite all the wheat and legumes we eat.
>Walking among them there were three or four women, young and gentle, with their hair very black and very long, loose to their backs; their private parts, so prominent and so neat, and so clean of their hairs that they did not get ashamed when we looked at them. >One of those young women had the whole body painted from bottom to top with that tincture, and she was so well-shaped and so rounded, and her private parts so graceful that many women of our land, if they had seen her features, would feel embarrassed for not having theirs look like hers.
>>8601>many women of our land, if they had seen her features, would feel embarrassed for not having theirs look like hers.
So even back then, men were like this. Comparing foreign women to their own country's women and deeming the latter not good enough.
It's funny because they made them that way, and then they don't want them anymore.
/Soc is a cesspool of the worst people you can find. Degenerate scum that'll fuck anything isn't very compelling of a argument. I'm pretty sure they have a thin girl thread as well.
T-Those butts count as firm?
Eh, this one looks similar to my body (as do a few in >>8643 ) and I wouldn't consider myself skinny or petite. Even if that body type isn't obese or overweight (neither am I), the ones especially under Roman/Greek definitely look more sturdy than what I picture as a thin girl.
idk man I just know Venus de Milo would be called a mannish fridge and torn apart on lolcow.
Beauty standards and fashion aren't really something people have control over. Actually historically I think men align their beauty standards much more closely to what women want than the other way around for the same reason men initiate to this day.
Also, I think you're reading too into it. He said it to emphasise their beauty by comparing to his peerage: aristocratic women who certainly would've been more feminine compared to brown huntergatherers working and out in the sun for their whole lives. He was being generous to emphasise the natural/strong beauty point. Doubtful that anyone actually considered them equal in unroughened feminine beauty.
I'm short with an hourglass figure (small waist, huge breasts and fleshy thighs) and i really don't like it.My upper body (other than breasts) is relatively thin but it's like all of the fat is stored in my legs and it gives me a very awkward shape.It's definitely more tolerable now that I'm no longer overweight but it still sucks.My "ideal" body type is waifish/androgynous with little curves, but i don't think that's anatomically possible for me.For now I'm just dieting to be thinner, and I might look into breast reduction in the future.
Ok retard keep making a fool of yourself on every thread it's kinda entertaining to watch>>8682
Our minds are in sync <3
>>8680>Actually historically I think men align their beauty standards much more closely to what women want than the other way around for the same reason men initiate to this day
The only reason I'm going to call this out is because I've never even seen records of what women wanted historically, maybe isolated examples from individual women, but not any big beauty ideal stuff written or sourced by women. If you have them please post them because I think that would be interesting! But I think a lot of them would have just been what the upper class men at the time were, kind of like how celebrities can set trends today.
I'm just thin petite body type my whole life and I like it. Average height, defined hips, small perky breasts. Pretty much never have to work out since I don't have any cravings for comfort food. I've never monitored my weight, it's like impossible to gain fat but I'm not unhealthily thin so that's fine.
I want to be a big elegant lady, like Vanessa Redgrave.
I’m a rectangle I have abs but I’m also extremely skinny and have no curves whatsoever T-T my body just goes flat down honestly! It’s fucking annoying too cause my rib cage is pretty wide and I’m very concious of it :(
Do you ever fill out when you gain weight?
Abs look great on women. Your post is blessed with quads of truth.
>>8899>tfw this could be my body with a good cut
Mmmm you're inspiring me to stick with it, anon. Bless.
It's not like you should induce muscular atrophy, so that doors feel like they're made out of steel when you push them. Just stick with the muscle and try to layer it with some fat.
>>8899>could be my body with a good cut
just remember to bulk afterwards strong women are sexy.
I’m 12 185 pounds and I have a wide rib cage now I don’t look fat but my wife rib cage makes me look fat how can I look better with a wide rib cage or make it smaller if possible?
work your shoulders, hips, and legs to create an hourglass silhouette. That's all I can think of.
I look similar to this, a bit broader shoulders, a little more of a curve at the waist and less fat on the stomach showing more abs, and with more fat at the very top of the thighs. I don't like having broad shoulders and wish my hips were wider. It is nearly impossible to find dresses that fit in my hips. I guess I'd be considered athletic and I have long legs but I don't feel very feminine sometimes. I got breast implants to feel more feminine but sometimes they just feel odd. I have body image issues but at this point in my life I'm just trying to dress to flatter myself (dresses that flare out at the waist are a must), and work on staying fit since it seems to come fairly easily to me.
I’m jealous. Are you a Stacy? Do men hit on you a lot?
I’m built like a Samsung smart fridge
images - 2020-08-3…
kek me too
pic related is sort of how i look like. no flare up dresses or workouts are going to fix this body because im just built like a large square.
I am told I am more attractive than I believe myself to be fairly often, but I am also a literal diagnosed autist lol so I can't even tell. I don't think it's even possible to be a Stacy with autism, is it? I just want a bf to love ;_; who isn't completely turned off by how awkward I am.
You can be a Stacy with Autism, everyone confuses diagnosed autism with being quirky anyway
Just find a shortwaisted man. Hoist him up, and his survival instincts will tell him to do exactly as you say. Life finds a way.
men don't know what curvy means, but i think bones jutting out would generally indicate otherwise>>9150>>9151
yeah if you're cute autism truly can be your superpower…men have somehow responded well to my bluntness and aspergian unashamedness and thus i've found a nice bf
Doesn't seem very fridge-like, to me. At least you have a visible waistline.
