No, not too thin IMO... She is beautiful with a curvy, fit, athletic body. Great weight/measurements.

Yes. Your upper arms shouldn't be the same size as your lower arms.

Well you are not a medical expert so you can't say if she is "too thin" or not. When you've (anyone here) has done a blood chemistry analysis, diet and nutritional analysis, taken her blood pressure/cholesterol etc... then decide. Some people are naturally thin and very healthy (as I am). Thin people who restrict calories to be thin are not healthy, but not everybody has to do that to be thin.

For my personal tastes, she's thinner than ideal for ME, but that is subjective.

The angle of the photo makes them appear the same size but her upper arms are larger. Anyway God knows what you'd say about me then, they are roughly the same proportions as hers too. I don't see how that is weird. It is the way I am built, and always has been like that, and is quite normal for lightly built people. I'm in extremely good health. And I tell you I'd be a billionaire by now if I have a quid for every time a doctor told me "gain weight, you're too thin, you'll drop dead blah blah etc...crap blah blah..." yet only to perform tests on me to find I am healthier than any of their other patients. LOL.

She is tall with long, lean limbs, small-bone structure, narrow wrists/face/ribcage - classic ectomorph. Many of the women in my family are naturally this build and we are extremely fit and healthy. I'm sure many men prefer a little more curve/bodyfat on a woman though. But this type of body tends to easily keep the weight off throughout adulthood. This is how I try to console my skinny ectomorph 12 y.o. who couldn't make football weight despite eating nonstop (he now does basketball and cross country instead).

First, they're not.

Second, I'd take a skinny, skinny arm over an arm like this any day. It's disturbing, like the arm is trying to eat the forearm and it's not even an uncommon sight these days.

I wouldn't say she's too thin, but she's borderline too thin.

Its really starting to become apparent that overweight is the new normal. We are so used to seeing overweight people, that now we got questioning is somebody to thin. I don't see naybody can look at that picture and say she is too thin. She is just another thin person.

She's pretty thin but not TOO thin. However, I think she'd look better with an additional 5-10 lbs on her

It depends on the context, and the definitions of 'thin' and 'too thin' in that particular context.

By normal standards, yeah, she's too thin. Six feet tall and 128 pounds? She's at least 10 pounds underweight. Her BMI is 17.4 (BMI <18.5 is considered 'underweight'; BMI <17.5 is considered an indicator of anorexia).

However, she's not too thin to be an SI or Victoria's Secret model.

As far as haute couture or runway modeling, though, she might be not thin enough.
