oh and i do think women look cuter/sexier/hotter with some curves.
same. the majority of my friends are smaller than me (but then again, i'm taller) and they all share/trade clothes but i'm the odd one out because i'm not their size. they seriously make me feel like a fat cow, too.

i have a friend who's extremely attentive to her weight. last time i checked, she was a size 5 (she's 1 inch shorter than me). i used to be that size and under during the school year when i was under constant stress and deflated as a result. i just saw her yesterday and she told me triumphantly she is was a size 1. and i gained weight over the summer so now i'm a 6/8. so she's all glamourous and pretty with a nice tan and double eyelid surgery, driving her new bmw; i am pale and weedy and chubby with bad skin in comparison. it's really depressing. it's like an unproclaimed competition. oh well, at least i'm smarter than her.

NO! NO! NO! A size 6/8 is perfect! How old are you? Freaking eyelid surgery? Good grief. . .I am all about plastic surgery; don't get me wrong, but DANG!

rarely, almost never. but when they do, they're very subtle and discreet about it and always keeping it positive and respectful.

however, most ppl don't make negative comments because encouraging comments like "you're hottttttt in those jeans!" are what the image poster wants to hear. if the poster claims "omgz i look so fat in these, don't look at me", as much has they want "honest" opinions, they won't ever get negative comments because the commenter will then by deemed as an insensitive cow, or the like. i can only think of one ex-forum member who ALWAYS told the bare truth to other forum members. and not everyone liked her. why? because she was "mean".

Are you serious? I've never heard of that and I thought I was pretty well versed in plastic surgery procedures.

I've got big ones too, but I can't comment 'cause I paid for them!

IMO, big boobs=good and big ass=not so good, at least on me!

I know all shapes and sizes can be beautiful - and I love that people do post pics of themselves proudly. I personally just can't. I wouldn't be fishing for compliments, because frankly, I wouldn't believe them if I got them. (I have issues, I know)... I'm not happy with my body, but I really wish I was - I'm trying, but I just gained weight due to a medication I'm on - it's tough. <rant>
my hope is one day to post a pic with pride.

Well, I understand the eyelid surgery, because one of my close friends got it done because ALL the women in her family got it done. I hear you can get the same effect with doublestick tape if you want to

I would like to remind you that a 6 is the required modelling size. You are not fat! Your scrawny friend needs to spend less time in the tanning booth and eat a cheeseburger. She probably feels just as awful about the way she looks. Rarely does a girl walk in and say "DAMN - I look great" even when they should.

Exactly, and that's probably the biggest flaw with a community like this. People certainly don't want to hear that a pair of jeans looks bad at them or that they need to size up... yet they still post threads asking "How does my fat ass look in these?" hoping to hear "oh darling, you're so tiny! they look amazing!". My favorite is when people make "insecure" topics when they know that they look fantastic.

If you're going to post your image on the internet you should be open to all types of comments. People shouldn’t be afraid to give their honest opinions, and all of these sugar coated replies really kill any chance. I’d love to share my two cents in a lot of these “image question” threads but I’m not looking forward to A) getting into a catfight for being an “inconsiderate bitch” and B) being labeled as an idiot since my opinion is different than the others expressed. This is one area where it would be great to be like Superfuture.

OO! Pics! Nina, they look great. and I can picture your pretty smile with them. Go on and post them

You can get to the point where you'll be proud of your body, but it really is hard work. It took me 20 years to say that I like my body, and believe me, I still have doubts! It's not abnormal to be unhappy with your body, but it is something that really can be changed (and without surgery or harmful measures).

Well, I was taught that if I did not have something nice to say then I am not to say it! But I guess silence says a lot. However, I can tell you that I trust people on this forum and I would think that the people that know me would tell me if something looks like crap on me. Honestly, though, I do not post the pictures of the jeans that look terrible on me. If I think they look bad, what anyone else things does not matter at all.

I will not tell you all how many years it took me to be "content" with my body, but it was more than 20!

WOAH - I think you might be reading it into it a little much. There are threads like WAYWT which are clearing where you flaught it and dig for compliments.

There are the check out my new coolness that you wish you had on my booty threads, which may be fishing for compliments, but is much more like have a few thousand women in the dressing room with you. "Oh, NICE!" "Where did you find it?" "DId they have my size" "I want legs like yours" etc

And then there's the valid "what do you think?" thread. Because even though it becomes clear some people are fishing for compliments, other people really wanna know. Nothing like shopping on ebay and not having someone there to tell you if you should keep it. My butt could look squished. My muffin top shows, it's gaping. It's loose in the thighs. I just paid retail (gasp) for a platinum vetter mini and I sure as hell am not taking the tags off until I know I look like a hot piece of candy.

There's also that absolute fear of putting a piece of yourself out there for scrutiny. I think I should post to the TR WAYWT thread every day but have I? No. There is only one butt shot of me on HF and I was sooooooo nervous about it. Thank god the thread was "are these too baggy?"

Right! There is a thing called "constructive criticism." We can all take it if a certain pair of jeans does not look right if someone says it nicely. It hurts a person's self esteem if someone bluntly says, "those jeans look like shit." Instead a person should say, "I really like the blah blah jeans in the blah blah wash much better on you." See how easy that is?

this surgery isn't really a serious thing, it's nothing big. it doesn't involve "plastic". i think i want to have this done, but the hippie side of me kind of disagrees. i'm really not sure, but i don't think i really have a choice lol

I just posted a new thread about this just minutes ago. I have heard that lots of people get it done in the Orange County area because it is so popular there. I wanted thoughts on it also. I have the nonexistent eye lid, it's "hooded". My mom wants me to have it done too.
