Is being very thin still in fashion? Or has the style gone to athletic? I've always been athletic and higher in weight than recommended, but I'm thinking of doing a total makeover for professional reasons (I'm a musician) and dropping the weight down to a much lower setpoint.

When you stand sideways at school and they mark you absent.

How thin is too thin?

When you can see out of a peephole with both eyes.
When you put a sesame seed on your head and people think you are a push pin.
When we can save you from drowning by tossing you a Cheerio.
When both of your nip*les touch.

In all seriousness, you should just concentrate on your fitness level and NOT your weight. Your health/fitness is more important anyway. Doesnt matter what the scale says as long as you are FIT.

I agree. People cant compare what their body looks like, to someone's else's who might be naturally thin - or able to eat more food and stay slim.

I think people "look too thin" when bones stick out where flesh should be. But hey, that's just me.

I think your body (for yourself) would be too thin when you had to go thru a day counting every calorie and every bite - and practically starving yourself to stay at that weight. That means it's not a normal weight for you to be at.

If you are athletic, you probably have more than average muscle structure. Muscle weighs more than just plain fat. So you can be more than the usual weight for you height and still look good.

Thin can look more like starvation very fast. Stick to what you are comfortable with.

Just do it and see if you like it. If not you can always go back. If you watch what you are doing you may re-gain your weight in more lean tissue too so you are more "cut" because of a lower body fat.

if you have large breasts, there is no such thing as too thin.

Unfortunately, like many women, when I reduce, that's the first thing to go.
