Hot Models, Skinny Versus Curvy

You Want to See More Models Looking Like… Left VS Right!

you-want-to-see-more-models-looking-like-left-vs-right - You Want to See More Models Looking Like... Left VS Right!

The Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim just took place in Miami and I’m glad to see that models of (slightly) different shapes and sizes walked on the runway.

Here’s a quick example: one skinny (yet not nearly as skinny as certain high-fashion models) model on the left and one slim, but curvier model on the right, both toned and tanned.

Simple question:

without a doubt the girl on the right, the one on the left looks horrible and to skinny.

and I also love the fact that the girl on the right has smaller breasts, because normally it's girls with plumped clevages that models swimwear. It's nice to see, for a change, girls with smaller breasts.

The girl on the left has a skinny upper body and it looks unhealthy.I kinda like the legs, though…

The girl on the right looks like me on the beach (I`m brunette,but…) :))

holy freakin moley, the girl on the right!!! this seriously just made my day. she's so…NORMAL(ish) looking, i'd definitely consider buying that bikini! i normally never even give a second glance to runway outfits cause i never want to find out how they'd look on my non-skeletal figure

Girl on the left for sure! Models should look like models and have bodies that make the clothes they are trying to sell look fabulous. The model on the right does not look good in the bikini nor does the bikini look good on her (i.e. her body doesn't sell it!) Instead, her b❆❆bs look unsupported and she has love handles (not to mention touching upper thighs though this has nothing to do with the bikini.) The bikini's unflattering on her whereas if it was promoted on a thinner model it would no doubt catch your eye a lot more.… Read more »

Uh, the clothes are being sold to women, and not all women are tall thin models, so why should we only see tall thin models showing off the clothes? "The bikini’s unflattering on her whereas if it was promoted on a thinner model it would no doubt catch your eye a lot more." It would catch my eye only due to the complete and utter shock value of it being on a thinner woman. When I look at the woman on the left, I am NOT seeing the bathing suit, I am seeing a woman that is astonishing(and not in… Read more »

and also why being skeletal = sexy? or 'perfection'? sorry i dont buy the medias crap that you need to be tall and skinny to be perfect.

i don't like either. the one of the left is a bit too skinny and the one on the right has no waist.

I would like to see more of both. I think models should come in variety. Excluding thin women from runway is just as wrong as excluding curvy women from runway. Both girls are pretty to me. Variety is nice to see. Kudos to them.

What always amazes me is how far we have come, just compare models in 80thies and modern day models. It's like with that Sophia Loren photo the other day, now she would be fat, flubby (no, not to me but generally) or whatever. We have never been more obsessed with beeing thin, just for that, and at the same time had more problems obesity and eating disorders…well isn't that kinda depressing?

definetely the one on the left! she looks so healthy, this makes me happy:)

side note: i dont get the whole thing about how super skinny models make clothes look better.. wouldnt the clothes look better on someone that was slim and curvy, and the garments fit them perfectly?

Kae
Guest

You mean, you prefer the woman on the right. I think that's what you mean.

Kae
Guest

Neither…but if I had to choose, I guess the one on the right but she doesn't have much of a waist and her b❆❆bs are on the small side. The one on the left looks like she wouldn't be caught dead frolicking on a beach. And in person, she's probably a little too thin for my taste. I prefer a thin but curvy figure in a bikini. Bar Rafaeli is my ideal.

I prefer my own bikini body to both of these ladies.

Yea, I agree with you about Bar Rafaeli. She has a really nice slim and curvy body.

They both look great! It's great to see a variety for sure. The model on the left does not look too thin to me, in the picture anyway (in real life it may be a different story) I love to see "healthier" looking models, but in this case i can't say i prefer the one on the right, as my own body structure is closer to the model on the left (thinner & bonier upper body/bigger breasts/smaller defined waist) What i do like more about the model on the right, however, is that she actually does look like she's about… Read more »

Both look great and i would be happy too look like either… they are both models after all. It's important to note the style of swimming costume both are wearing… very different. The costume on the left looks as though it is intended for someone who enjoys lying on the sand at the beach, not swimming. The model on the right looks natural and more like a "surfer chick" not only because of her beach hair, natural make-up and tan, but also her body… she's beautiful!

The one on the left has the better body of the two.

I cant really decide, in fact i dont think someone should have to chooose. Everyone has a different body type and both look great. I like that girl on the right b/c isnt extermly busty and looks healthy and slim.(not that being busty is bad– just its refreshing to have a change once in while)

But the girl on the left is skinny but she doesnt look unhealthy.

I think that both girls look good and people should embrace different body shapes instead of constating critisizing and showing the same body types/

Monique

I think that if the girl on the right had some heels on, it would be another story, she wouldn't be so different from the left girl. As for the breasts on the right, I think the bra has too little fabric in comparison with the bikini, thus giving the feeling of smaller.

I like them both, but I relate to the one on the left, as my body type resembles to hers.

VM

definitely left.

Uma

I like both of them. However, i am probably so used to models being extremely thin, that it's almost weird to see the girl in the right on the catwalk. To see her on the beach, she has an amazing body. But so does the one on the left, she actually seems to have a smaller bone structure, but she is very toned and looks healthy and does not look like a flat board, like so many models look. And that's what matters. So both are great i guess, i wish more models looked like any of them, as long… Read more »

People who understand fashion recognise that there are different body types suitable for different types of clothing. I think most people on this forum seem to covet the sense of style of stars like those from"The Hills'- stuff that's a little glam, but comfortable and simple at the same time. When it comes to these types of clothes, a more curvaceous figure is fine. The clothes come from what are mostly ready to wear collections, and they are generally marketed to what is coined as 'real women', so as such, it would make sense to use figures similar to those… Read more »

laurena

I definitely agree with you.

However, it's the people that do not understand this, and compare themselves to the super-skinny models thinking that's what everybody deems "beautiful" – that's where the problem arises.

And that's why it's great too see more average looking models – to reinforce the fact that these super-skinny models with often unattainable figures (unless you've won the genetic lottery) do NOT represent all that true beauty is.

Kae
Guest

Yes, it is human nature to compare ourselves to others. To compare ourselves with models is the ultimate set up for failure. Maybe that's why so many people find the fashion industry to be irrelevant. I wear clothes based on my body type rather than what runways models might be wearing. To me, the fashion industry is for entertainment purposes only.

Appreciating women with healthy bodies makes a person obese? That's news to me! And while appreciating extremely skinny bodies doesn't necessarily mean a person is suffering from an eating disorder, it might imply that the person has a distorted body image. Same with thinking that *actually* overweight people (NOT the model on the right) are healthy.

Well…not everyone has big b~~~~. I don`t, and it`s hard for me to find a flattering bikini, because I`m tall, athletic, normal hips and smaller b~~~~, just like the girl on the right. So it`s nice to see an ad made for girls like me, not for the 180 cm 50 kg type.

Kae

I'm not saying that all women have to have big b~~~~, that's just what I prefer. I wasn't saying that small breasted women are less attractive or anything of that nature…:)

Everyone on here is saying that they would buy the bikini because they can relate to that girl on the right and think that her body looks great in it. Ok, fine … The suit looks pret-a-porter, so let's imagine walking into a store where it was available and trying it on: If you looked like she does in the suit would you buy it? Maybe, you would, but I for sure wouldn't be caught dead looking that horrid whether it be due to the suit's own shortcomings or my own. On the one hand, it may be the suit… Read more »

Looks like you could probably injure yourself on girl on the left's shoulders. Eek.

Girl on the right looks better, but I'd probably rather keep my own body. She doesn't have much of a waist or any b~~~~. She looks good for runway model standards though.

Skeletal doesn't equal sexy or perfection no, but the girl on the left is by no means skeletal. I'm not saying the girl on the right isn't sexy either. It's a matter of which girl is a more appropriate model, and the girl on the left most certainly is.

It's disturbing that Americans (and beginning to be parts of W. Europe, too) are so used to seeing overweight women (whom they label "average" or "athletic" or "curvy" etc.) that when a truly healthy looking girl who's lean and toned in all the right places comes along she's deemed "skeletal."

Kae
Guest
I understand what you're saying about people accepting overweight as average or athletic or curvy, but there are many of us who don't. What is wrong with being normal and healthy? Something in between extremely thin and overweight? When it comes to body weight, people seem to want to be underweight OR are comfortable with being overweight. Both are total extremes. If a woman is a size 6(US) like me, she may be called overweight. I don't understand this at all. So those of us that are normal and healthy feel bad about ourselves because we can't or don't wish… Read more »

how could you possibly think the girl on the left is "truly healthy"?? take her to any country in the world and she would be deemed underweight!! the fact that our standards of beauty have changed doesn't mind we don't have the brain to recognize who is underweight and who isn't.

I hope you aren't thinking the girl on the left is a "truly healthy looking girl who’s lean and toned in all the right places", because she's not. She's bony in the upper body: shoulders, collarbone, breast bone, elbows look wider then they should be(her face looks a bit gaunt too, but I'm not sure if that's because of her facial expression or not). Her lower body isn't much better; prominent knees, and she has more indentations in her thighs than a normally healthy, lean and toned woman usually has(can almost see hipbones too, but the suit distracts from that).… Read more »

I think both of them look amazing and have great legs, but the right one makes ME feel more confident. So the left one is just a nice girl to look at while the left one is slim, beautiful and not daunting.

If I had to wake up with one of those bodies, the thin girl on the left. The girl on the right has a gorgeous body too.

I'm just thinking that as a model wearing all sorts of clothing, the thinner one would look far better.

What? What flaws need to be fixed on her? She doesn't have love handles, no amount of time in the gym is going to get rid of broad shoulders. WTF is wrong with touching thighs, especially considering the fact she ISN'T overweight so it isn't an excess of weight that's causing it? "untoned upper arms"? Her upper arms look fantastic, and she just may be the type that doesn't get a lot of muscle tone. And I don't think a lot of time in the gym would fix her "non existent waist" either. She's not flabby, her tummy's not overhanging… Read more »

What's so great about skinny? It's not like the model on the right is overweight or anything, so why can't models have similar bodies to hers too?

Kae

Holy crap, some people on here really have body image issues. Before you hit the gym twice a day and stop eating to try and fix your genetically predisposed "flaws", stop by your shrink's office beforehand and get your heads straightened out. Some of you are way over the top.

What else did you think this site was going to be about. Doesn't the "skinny vs curvy" title give it away?

Leanna

I don't see these love handles you speak of? Or this untoned body.

If you want to know both girls look pretty much equally toned. The one on the left has slightly more defined stomach but as for her thighs having a gap that's not low body fat, that's low muscle mass.

And the broad shoulders how is that her fault exactlY? It's the way she is built.
