Ok ladies, let's check out those bodies! - Page 2

post #31 of 63
I am long waisted... but shorter legs, so jeans are a nightmare...

I have a long torso(sitting down in a chair, i look taller than my 6'1" husband.)

I have broad shoulders, and (used to have jumbo boobs)... now they are just large... t-shirts are almost the only thing that fits right....

by this description i probably sound like circus material... but i look quite normal i assure you

I have little short legs so finding pants that are the right length is hard!
post #34 of 63
My main problem is that I have no waist to speak of. My hips are only a couple of inches larger than my waist. That means that I have to buy a larger size than fits the rest of my body, and if I were to buy a dress, I invariably need to take it in on top. (I'm also not well endowed.)

Because being "thin" is not being underweight or skinny. I'm 5'8", 34B, have a small toned waist area and hips that you can actually notice, and a well-toned though bubbly butt! I might be on the smaller end as far as weight goes, but I know that I've still got curves that men like. I'm not annoyed or anything, I just get tired of "thin" girls being lumped in with a completely different group of girls who have no figure. Especially since I'm on the taller side. It's frustrating.And who knows, maybe men here in Florida like different things than men in Canada?
I'm another tall, thin woman & have the same issues! I've never had a problem attracting men. Especially the dirty old leering pervs who hold doors open for me & tell me what a pretty girl I am...gross!
I've had problems with jeans all of my life because of my long, skinny legs, but in the past years have found ALOT of luck at Western wear stores.
It's not true about the clothes industry being catered to tall, thin women-they only model the clothes. I envy the girls who can walk into Wal-Mart & pay 15 bucks for a brand new pair of jeans!

with or without clothes??
post #38 of 63
I'm another one in the busty and hippy category. If it fits around those areas, it doesn't fit in the shoulders or the waist. I have to have most of my dressy clothes altered. (Except, oddly, my wedding dress. Somehow that fit perfectly.) I've put on some weight, but even when I was really thin, I had the same problem. I can (Back in my dancing days everyone told me I was shaped more like a stripper than a ballerina!)

Sorry, Ryan...no pix.

post #43 of 63
When i buy jeans or shorts i always have to try them on because i have a problem with them being too baggy in the butt... i dont think i have NO butt i think i have a ghetto booty.. but this always seems to be a problem... i have to buy low rise (which i love anyway) for them to fit right.

Oh and yes Someone else needs to post some pics since ryan found my semi bad pic! lol

There's no "too tall for everything on the shelf" option!
All of you ladies who are 5'8" and complaining, hush. You're only 2 inches above average.
I am 6 feet tall.
I am 6 inches taller than the average US female. And 2 inches taller than the average US male, so I have to look down at most of them.
I have a 34-inch inseam.
Therefore the arms, legs and body of just about every peice of clothing I try on is too short. Plus, I have a JLo butt, a relatively small waist and broad shoulders, but a flat chest. All of my "long"-sleeve shirts and jackets are more like 3/4 length, and I can't find dress pants ANYWHERE. Luckily I can wear jeans to work, and Gap is the only brand that even remotely fits my legs. If I can get a dress or skirt over my big ole booty, it's WAY too loose in the waist.
And for-freakin-get about high heels. lol Though I have one pair that puts me at 6'3.5". hehe It's a good thing my boyfriend is tall.

Personally, I believe ALL women should be happy with their body structure, no matter what the media (or men) dictates as being acceptable. And we are ALL beautiful in our own unique ways.
Amen!!!
We are indeed.

Actually last I checked 5'4" was average, so you're even FURTHER from the female average! You can give me some of that height. I've always wanted to be 5'10," even though most people think I'm nuts.

Aw Fwan, I feel your pain!!
In high school, I was a size 5 pant and a size 12-14 top I was frequently called "Dolly Parton in scale" , and I would politely remind them that i was 2" TALLER than Dear Dolly. I had a reduction surgery in my last year of HS, and I went berserk w/the cute shirts cut to show off my then-perfectly proportioned bustline.

Now, I'm 40 lbs heavier, busty as ever, average height but above average inseam, so I have to buy avg/tall trousers and extra large tops

personal question... you dont have to answer if you dont want... do you regret having your reduction surgery??
I had it done the summer after high school.. i am 5'6" and i had DD boobs by the beginning of 9th grade and DDD by the end of high school and i wasnt overweight by any means, in fact, i was lovingly referred to by most of my guy friends as 'Nicole'(as in anna nicole)... and i actually quit playing softball because, well, i hated them and it hurt...
Now i regret having it done.. for so many reasons.. mainly when i have a kid, i want to breastfeed... but I cant now, and i just really miss them... sorry if that sounds dumb...but i do

I was just wondering if I am the only one that was regreting it...

I totally hear you, on ALL of this. I loathed PhysEd, I dressed in baggy clothes to hide my bust which made me look fat, and I was often mistaken for much older than I was.
The ONLY regret I have about my surgery is that I didn't wait another year or so. I had it done shortly before my 17th b-day, and at 19 I hit another growth spurt and went back to a (small) D-cup. I have accepted the fact that I am genetically designed to have a big bust, but still. . . Bra shopping is a really PITA

Check your PM's

I'm petite, 5'3", with a very small waist, but with the natural female curves, so even though children's clothes would suit my height, they don't fit right since the children haven't yet acquired those curves. I like low rise pants, but it's difficult to find them so they don't require rolling up or altering so they don't drag the ground. The best fit I've found are from the Gap low rise short. Express clothes tend to fit better than others. I haven't been clothes shopping in the longest time, now I want something new! This is an interesting thread, Cindy!

I got short stumpy legs with thick dancer's thighs! Everything has to be taken up or let out...I hate it!! Lol

Thanks Steph! I just thought that it would be neat to see the different problems that each of us has finding clothes that fit. It's been very interesting!
post #58 of 63
Let me just start by saying that most days I love clothse, but hate shopping. I'm in your narrow shoulders, bigger than I'm supposed to be boobed. Just yesterday I walked into the bathroom at work and found that I'd been walking around with one button poped open. Then to top it off I'm short waisted. Short waist + big boobs = a girl made of nothing but a head, arms, boobs, and legs. The worst for me is getting formal gowns altred and finding shirts that aren't all long in the back and short in the front. And while were on it, how come it's hard to find a reasonably priced bra that my grandmother doesn't own!?! I am 22! Not 82 thank you very much!
post #59 of 63
My biggest problem is being 5'2"
I have the proper curves, just too much padding on them

Seriously, in order to find clothes that are both short enough, and large enough, I have to buy 1X petites, which are NOT easy to find at all.
