I think it depends on the body type. But generally I think that anyone who can wear a size 6 or below is skinny. Even at my lowest weight, I could only get down to a 5 because of my hips.
Depends on height. At 5’3″, I would look fat at a size 6, whereas someone 6 feet tall would probably be considered skinny. My regular clothing size is a 3 and I consider myself normal.
I agree with meliss; it totally depends on height, and probably on the perceiver’s size as well 🙂
at 5’7″, I am between a 8 and a 10, I think size 6 and below is skinny for my height.
I think most people think its about one size smaller than they currently are.
I depends on the body type but I’d say either a 4 or a 6 (I voted for 4).
That said – I don’t think that everyone should strive to be skinny. I don’t even think I’d look good as a size 6 – for my body, I feel that would look too skinny. So it really all depends.
It does depend on body type and height, I am 5ft 11 and look skinnier than my 5ft 5 friends who are smaller sizes than me, even thought I weigh more than them
I think six and below is flatteringly skinny at any height. At 6, I feel healthy and comfortable. At 8, I don’t feel totally confident, but OK. At 10, I feel flabby. I’m 5’2″, former army. 128 is my optimum healthy weight. That’s a size 6-8 at 5’2″. I do have an hourglass figure, and I am well endowed (I wish I was half this bloody well endowed), so I have to shop for bust and hip sizes, not waist.
I didn’t vote b/c it really depends on a person’s height and build. I know for me personally…anything below a size 12 would be skinny. I am talking collarbones and hip bones jutting out skinny. That’s b/c I am fairly tall 5’9″ and have a large frame. For someone shorter and/or with a smaller frame…a size 12 would look ginormous to them. It’s all relative.
I voted size 2 and below. But I think that’s just what I’m comfortable with at my size/body weight. I’m only 5’1″ and anything bigger than a 2 looks not skinny (not fat either — just not skinny).
Well, i’m 6’1″ and if I was anything under an 8-10, i’d be anorexic, so for my body type, that’s the size i’d pick!
I think anything below is size 4…but again it depends on height and frame! Im a size 4 and 5’9 and I barely ever get called skinny! I have a small frame though.
