    @Christy42213:  I’m not talking about their six-packs, I’m talking about their legs and arms. actually I don’t see a well-defined six-pack? I just see a lump of abs which still has a small covering of fat, similar to myself. I do not work hard or restrict calories so I know for a fact it’s POSSIBLE to have this sort of body and not be unhealthy/obsessed.

    it may not be realistic for most people, and MAYBE some of them truly are unhealthy, but it’s not possible to judge from these photos alone. that would be unfair.

     

    @Barbiestylez:  of the two photos you posted, I think it’s unfair to call one “sexy healthy” and one “sending a bad message”. both body types are equally unattainable by the general populace, and neither is necessarily healthy or unhealthy. but it’s definitely -possible- to be healthy looking like either body, though the first one probably requires more upkeep because of bigger muscles.

    @princesslettuce14:  I know, I thought I was going crazy.  It’s not like these models are exclusive to VS, they work year round & need to be in runway form.  Sure, they work out more for muscles before the VS show, let’s not be duped by VS, their push-up bras & very skilled make-up artists.

     

    I love Joan.  I’m also really surprised that Jourdan Dunn didn’t walk this year. She’s got boobs & she’s stunning.

     

     

     

    The show was really lackluster last night. If you’re going to have a lingerie show, i want them to go back to that fierce Amazonian Goddess look they became famous for–Tyra, Gisele, Laetitia, etc.

    @BagsnBooks:  Ok yes! Laetitia Casta and Tyra were legit size 6’s. 

     

    and Jourdan did walk! She has fantastic boobs after having her baby. I also read too much Vogue fyi.

    @mrs_narwhal:  Amen! 

    @Barbiestylez:  I really want to start up a thread regarding over weight women and how they are unhealthy because they are overweight and probably have high cholesteral, heart disease, high blood pressure or diabetes etc because according to the OP we should know this from what people LOOK like from the outside. Because of course we have to assume skinny people are anorexic and unhealthy so we can feel better about ourselves and sleep better at night.

    @letigre:  amen girl. I am so tired of these “too skinny” threads and discussions. I cannot imagine how a thread about celebrities or models being “too fat” would go over. Body shaming goes both ways, and it needs to stop. These models are paid to walk down a runway in lingerie. I’d diet before too. Hell, how many brides diet and get onto crazy workout routines before their wedding?

    I’m 5’9 and wear a 0-2. Genetically, I’m lucky. But I’d hate to hear that I look “sickly” because of the genes I inherited and a workout routine I sick to.

    Sorry for the rant, but I am just so sick and tired of this discussion.

    I think the VS models look awesome. They work hard to do well at their jobs, and continue working in their chosen profession. I’d kill for boobs that would fill out a B cup, by the way!

    @cheesecakelove:  exactly. It’s ok to bash skinny women because if we look good chances are we don’t eat or puke but if someone comments about someone being fat everyone is up in arms! 

    Many, MANY of these girls are naturally slim. Of course they work to be in shape but guess what, it isn’t 90% that have eating disorders. it’s not fair to assume if you look hot that you are sick. Some people are just lucky and some what to look great and bust their butts to get that way.

    obesity leads to TONS of very real health issues and with an insane amount of our population being overweight to obese maybe people should focus on themselves instead of bashing other women.

    @Chrissy26:  The University of Toronto recently published an article in the Annals of Internal Medicine saying there is no such thing as healthy obesity or healthy overweight. I’ve been wanting to post it, but I am afraid that I would probably have my head bitten off. I just think it would be interesting to have an educational debate about it, but I’d be considered as “fat shaming” even if I’m just posting an article by a highly regarded university in a highly regarded journal. A bee’s anecdotal evidence is always better than a highly regarded researcher’s, right?

    I’m dismayed that people can hate on skinny people and make VAST generalizations without being put in their place that any shaming is a huge set back for women (no matter what size) and it does nothing to help love ourselves or one another.

    @mrs_narwhal:  thanks for the info. I’m actually a personal trainer, model, and performance nutritionist so I know that healthy and overweight or obese cannot be in the same sentence.

    sadly we probably won’t have a calm discussion about this. Too many people topic are easily offended 😉
