But, according to her BMI and her height and weight, she is not even overweight, her BMI is barely 23.4, falling into the "normal weight" category (overweight is above 25), and her weight is in the healthy range for her height. So, no doctor would say she is even overweight, but still people call her fat. Maybe her very large breasts makes her seem bigger than what she is?

Anyways, i would be interesting to know the percentage that here thinks she is fat, and the percentege that think she is not, and how women and men vote on this.

I of course think she is not fat, i think her body ideal, though i do think her breasts are too big, but if she had less breasts she would have a killer body. However, she is not fat by any means, large breasts or not. She is also very beautiful.

So vote "yes" or "no", and "no" doesnt mean you think she is thin, just means you think she is not fat.

Anyone who calls her fat has a very warped view of the body. She is not fat.

I don't know. She posted a few pix of women who had extremely healthy looking bellies and she still complained that their bellies were not "perfect". In my book there's a large, very large gap between perfect and ugly. There's lots of room for not being "perfect" and yet quite womanly and desireable and attractive.
Not sure what's the point of spending your life trying to look "perfect" when it might be extremely hard for genetic reasons and when being "quite good" is good enough.

L21 - A rambling tirade like that just proves my point. This thread isnt about you or your measurements or your bmi or your waist to hip ratio. Why are you trying to make it that way? I don't think shes fat. And most people who voted agree with me. Thats really it. But if you need more, then yes shes a very womanly, curvy, shapely and attractive woman too. Youll just have to deal with that.

I posted the picture because I thought you didn't realize her tummy isn't as flat as she portrays it to be. If you think that's womanly that's your opinion. ...
yeah but what's especially womanly about having a very, very flat stomach ?
It's more a characteristic of girls than of women.
Great artists of the past never emphasized very flat bellies on women or goddesses that they painted and sculpted.

You're hallucinating. I never posted my measurements.

Where did you see that?

I'm ignoring you now. You can't accept that I don't agree with you. I'm kind of done. And I never called far. In fact I said and think she's pretty.

No it's not the belly that makes a woman more womanly it's her hips. Sculptures of the past focused a lot on childbearing hips. That's what makes a woman have feminine build. And estrogen promotes weight gain below the belly. Scientifically is shown women with a lower whr are more attractive. One that is .7 or lower is ideal. That's what studies have shown.

And yeah they didn't emphasize muffin tops either.

Youve interjected comments about your body and size so yeah you have mentioned your measurments not implicitly but yes. You are trying hard to compare yourself to CH as to some how divert attention away from her to yourself. Why not start your own poll thread with a pic of you and ask if you're hot or womanly or whatever? It would be a better way to get the answer you need instead of jacking this thread.

You may not have posted your measurements, but you did post a lot of stuff and numbers that people don't give two spits about. What matters is what people look like, not a number on the scale, or a measuring tape. The majority of people don't think she's fat. They think she looks like a real woman, and has curves. You're trying to explain their OPINIONS away with numbers that no one cares about.

Sorry no I'd never compare myself to her.

I only used myself as an example because I don't know anyone else's weight.

You sound desperate to find how I'm comparing myself when I'm only using my experience to explain my interpretation of weight. You're not going to change my mind. I'm not trying to change yours so get over it.
