None of them look fat. I think fat is different on everyone. I think i am fat, i am a size 16 at 5'2. I think its on how you feel and what you look like. I am 190lbs yet someone else at 190lbs could look bigger or smaller depending on how they carry weight.



Those women are beautiful and I would kill to look like the size 12 girl. I think women critique other women so harshly that some women believe that size 8 is fat. We shouldnt go by the number in pants or the number on a scale. You should go by how you feel and look in your own skin.

I am 5'9 so when I am in a size 10 or 12 I look pretty thin or like the woman above. It all varies on your height!

That's because society puts to much pressure on women to be stick skinny look how the go on and on about losing baby weight and this persons to fat and they created stupid crap like photo shop so girls and some guys use it to hid any imperfection or shed some of their weight cause they think they are too fat why does everyone have to be a zero

Could it be your perception of yourself?

I am the same way.



I actually love to do the guess your weight thing at the fair cause I always win a prize, lol

They all look great. The girl furthest to my right is not fat at all. She looks like the average size of a woman to me. I actually prefer a thicker, more curvy body type.

It really makes me wonder if my self perception is screwed up.
Prior to having kids I wore a 00, I'm 5"8
I was skinny but not like emaciated looking.
Looking at these women who are more than likely taller than I am, I can't figure out how for instance, the size 8 chick wears an 8. She doesn't have that much weight to lose if she even wanted too, kwim

This is way true.




But I was kinda wondering if they would have said a different size, like 4, 6, and 8 if the girls commenting would have said something different.



I am always amazed at how much importance girls put into the number on their tags

I can't figure how she wears an 8 either. I use to be her size before I had kids and was in a 00 or a 1.

Honestly...I don't think about it lol :oops:
But my boyfriend has seen me at a size 5, a size 8 and now a size HUGE! (haha preggo belly...). I've never been super in shape, I always have a little extra squish on me :) haha His favorite size I've been is right before I got pregnant...when I was an 8. He says how I was soft and squishy and all the things a girl should be. lol
