UHC2005: Sybarite: From an FHM Aus. article, these three women are sizes 8, 12 and 14 respectively.


/for comparison's sake


Have the 12 and 14 bathed and brought to my quarters...


Bathed? Naw, keep them dirty, it's better that way.

Lollipop165: drunkenmidnight

After trying to understand wtf was going on and the differences between the sizes, like odds and evens are different things? Some stores only sell sizes 3, 5 and 7?

Odd numbers are generally used in stores for teenagers.

Even numbers are generally for adult women.

But dresses can go any way (although I see them most in even numbers).


That doesn't make any sense, it makes as much sense as this picture:

FortKnox: MissDementia: I see someone is unfamiliar with the term "stalker".

/had me one of them
//pulled all my pics, permanently

Yeah, that would do it for me, too... but I'd be more likely to pull my name and location than pictures...


This was a local site full of metal heads. All he needed was a pic. Next thing I know I'm out for my morning jog and ta-da! My very own pet stalker! Took me a while to get rid of him. (Plus I moved off the grid and am technically not in Sac anymore, so...)

littletts wallytacker: Hhaha fat people are inferior, just like bald men.

A little pudge is nice on a guy. I need something to snuggle up to so I can stay warm.


Even when i was really thin, girls always told me I was very warm in bed. I've long been unable to sleep with pajamas on, I get too hot. My rapid metabolism causes me to throw off heat like crazy.

Lizsavage: Bridesmaids dresses are NOT the real sizing at all.

Unless women in a size 16 have a 34c chest, as thats the size BM dress I fit into at the shop, and even that was pushing it.

BTW I am 5'2 120lbs wear a size 3 jeans, 7 dress. 34c-25-28

I wish I had an ass.

So... Even when I weighed 148 I was only in a size 9, so to get to a 14 at my height, you would easily be pushing 200lbs. (unless you have huge hips and ghetto booty) NOT HEALTHY.

The models in that FHM comparison are all definatly over 5'10 so that puts the perspective askew, as women come in all different heights.

My friend who is 6'1 weighed 110lbs and wore a size 7/8 She is as thin as the 8 in that pic, if not thinner. Her BMI was incredibly low, even after 2 kids! Shes just that way.

But seriously with being in the entertainment field, I go through the pressure to stay thin, and people are always telling me to lose weight. I am happy the way I am.


Then why do you look so angry in your picture? Looks like you're gonna bite someones head off!

LMark: I've noticed that even men's sizes vary, which is weird because those sizes are supposed to be based on inches, a standard unit of measurement, at least in the US. But I've noticed that size 32 dress pants, for business casual outfits, fit me just fine, but I need a belt to hold up size 30 jeans.

It seems like stores have started changing casual sizes as well. Some places that used to just have shirts now have athletic and regular cuts. Athletic is what normal used to be, and regular means the shirt tapers out from shoulders to bottom. For a guy like me with broad shoulders and an athletic build, it's annoying.

It also has a lot to do with your body composition. If you are muscular you will look thinner than a girl with similar features, but has little muscle at the same weight.

I Don't Appreciate Your Ruse
I'm also 5'7" and at 145, people are constantly telling me I'm too skinny. I can't imagine being 30+ pounds lighter. Are you 13? Are you a vegetarian or do you run or swim a ton?


dude,
you're 5'7" and 145, and people are constantly telling you you're too skinny ?? WTF?! is it getting you down? :-(
don't listen to them / don't let them get you down.
if you're happy with your height and weight, all the power to you!

LOL --- Nope, I'm not 13. lol
I'm 24.
funny you should ask me if i'm a vegetarian...
see, My father is a vegetarian, has been since 1975.
I guess you could say i grew up as half-vegetarian. [if there is such a term]
Most of the time we had vegetarian type meals, but sometimes my dad would have his vegetarian stuff and my mom and brother and I would have something with meat in it. And sometimes i'd get lunch-meat sandwhiches and stuff for school.
And I guess you could say I'm still mostly half-vegetarian.
The only kinds of meat I eat are: chicken, the occasional burger, the occasional fish, the occasional pork, meat-based pizza, etc.

Nope, i don't run or swim a ton.
I haven't swam in years, and I don't like to run, unless i have to, or i'm being chased lol

p.s. awesome fark name btw :-)

Start getting more confident, be happy with what you look like. I'm 6'3, 27 y/o, just broke the 160 barrier a few weeks ago. You're not gonna get any fatter, maybe 20 pounds when you hit 30, maybe. Don't see it as a negative and you'll get more ass. There's always gonna be the girls who wanna put you down with the whole "you're too skinny" bullshiat. Most of those girls that I've dealt with have body issues or think they're so hot that they deserve the Ambercrombie model. Move on, there's more to be had out there. Didn't really figure this out until I hit 23, but I'm glad I did.

Also, ladies, you wanna bash on the skinny guy? Go ahead, but I'm more than happy to find, and tell you, everything that's wrong with you if you wanna go down that path.


thanks for the words of encouragement! :-)
yeah, in the back of my mind, i'm slightly afraid i'm gonna gain a bunch of weight [ie. 30-40 pounds] when i'm like 30 something or 40 something lol
i mean i eat healthily, but
i COULD stand to do more exercise and stuff... like running, situps/pushups, weights[?], etc.
i mean sure i may be skinny, but i'm not in absolute top physical health... i could be fitter...

you're 6'3" [tall] and 160lbs? is that average for your height? or a little bit less?

Are you white? or are you Black? cause one thing I have noticed is that lots of pluss sized white women go with skinny black dudes and lots of pluss sized black women go with skinny white dudes, Don't know why, but it's something I have observed.


I'm white.

damn man, i'm only a shade taller (5'-8") than you but almost 190, and i'm a 33/34 (when i was 165 i was 30/31)

ummm whut?
your jean size when you were 165 pounds was 30/31?
maybe we're in different countries with different sizes/measurements?

littlett: But I'm so skinny now I don't have my period!

That's not that uncommon, actually. We see that here at the clinic a lot. When the body recognizes that food may be scarce, and you are not getting all the nutrition you need, the first thing to go is your period.

I'm almost afraid to start losing weight but it'll happen this spring, whether I want it to or not (and to be honest, I sort of want to try being slim, at least once).
The thing is, I've got a huge exam coming up this summer and it's a group exam in sports. Being a group exam, I also have to participate in whatever else the other members of the group have to showcase, which will make it a long and grueling day.
So, training for that with the showcases of the entire group from february 1st untill mid-June, I can be quite certain at least some fat will melt off me.

The problem? I'm poorer than a church rat (I'm a college student...) so I can't just go buy new clothes. I'm currently working my way through my last two pairs of jeans and I honestly have no "nice" clothing.

Oh well, if that's the worst of my problems, I guess I'm doing fine.

2008-12-29 04:38:34 PM  
In this thread, I am in the minority, but as a former college athlete and high school sports coach, I want a woman who takes care of herself.

No exercise nazis, but if you run a few times a week and hit the gym, that's great.

Basically I need someone who can run around and play sports with me.

/And I absolutely will not date someone who cannot run correctly.

Before you know it, you'll be on the front-end of 30's with a bra size of 40FF. I don't think you would want an @ss that big.

Unfortunately, I am past the early thirties and still don't have a large backside. I'm genetically unable to get a big fat arse.

I also attended a 'clothing swap' where everyone just brought in their clothes that don't fit/ bought but never wore, but that's more of a girl thing.

Go to thrift stores, invest in belts. You can do it!
