I don't care what anybody says about curves...I have 'em and I love 'em. That hour glass shape is what defines a woman (look at Marilyn Monroe, she had curves and she was the epitome of feminine). The only females that shouldn't have curves are young adolescent girls...simply because they haven't developed curves yet. Women that don't have at least a little curve, look like tall kids (such as Kate Moss...although she looks like a tall 10 year old that's been beaten, neglected and starved and thrown in some bushes a few times). Besides, men might look at those girls because they're thrown in everyone's faces but if you ask men, statistically, they do NOT like fake boobs and they DO like naturally shaped women....so let Kate Moss shove her 20 million where the sun don't shine for all I care!!!! LOL

I have to disagree with that though....I'd definitely give up some of the boob area if anyone needed some...I agree, I have a little waist, normal lower half and a big chest...certain clothes or dresses look really silly on me. I always say I'm afraid to work out too much or I'll end up looking like a body builder or something up there....Hey, maybe Kate Moss would pay me a small portion of her nose candy money if I sold her a couple pounds of boobs.

Good news! In people magazine, one country banned all models with <18 BMI! Out of 300 models, only 68 showed up! One was 5'7 and weighed 107, another 5'11 and weighed 117! Both have been banned and once other countries follow suit, all those banned models will have no choice but gain weight!

But what about adolescent girls who HAVE developed curves? I hope you're not putting them down, they have a hard enough time with older men mistaking them for being "legal", teenage boys teasing them, and other girls treating them like freaks.

But you bring up a good point --- it is very likely that the reason why top models like Kate Moss are selected for their strange proportions is because they look like little girls. It's an uncomfortable thought to contemplate, but there's no denying that a super-skinny gangly model has body proportions more like a 12 year old girl than a normal woman. That doesn't make the skinny model a bad person, nobody is to blame for anything here! We just have to look honestly at what it is that's making women pay over and over to see images of skinny women. Men are not the driving force behind the industry, though we often get blamed. What drives fashion is that women buy into it.

Instead of laws against skinny models, how about women just boycott magazines and TV shows that feature them? That would be the way of freedom and choice. If you get into saying they can't be too skinny, then you should also ban images of obesity because that's every bit as dangerous and also sends 'bad messages' to women. We don't need more laws --- we need to be informed, have compassion for each other, and take care of ourselves.

I had a friend that was a H cup, yes I said H, didnt even know they made that size, she had them reduced to a small C now she regrets it, mine are only DD and yes I have a tiny waist and i have problems with clothes sometimes fitting me, but they are a part of me, someone can have part of my rear though!!!!

Well, I can't say I'll trade with you because I'm almost as big up there as you are (D) and I'm not loving my rear-end lately either LOL!!! But I do believe that although we can always work on ourselves to stay fit and in shape, we should definitley be happy with and proud of what we were given...none of that plastic surgery crap. I'm made simpy the way I was supposed to be....gorgeous! LOL

Ps. I never heard of an H cup either!!! When I was pregnant the very first time I went into an E (which I had never heard of either) and I cried and cried so much that my mom didn't know what to even say to me. My next bunch of pregnancies were as big, but I had by then surrended to the boob factor...
