What size do YOU consider "thin"?

I consider anything below an 8 thin. Doesn't mean that I don't envy the women in 10s, 12s, and 14s though ;D

  • I also consider 8 and under thin! I was a size 10 pre-preggo, post partum I was a size 18 (gained 60 lbs). I am currently 19 months post partum and down to a size 14! yaaaay! lol. I find it so funny how I used to think I was fat while I was a size 10. I would LOVE to be a size 10 again!

  • yeah I think below an 8 would be considered thin....below a 5 probably too thin.

  • I wouldnt say "too thin"....because some women have tiny physiques to begin with! I will never be a size 5 because I just dont have that physique. would be nice though lol

  • I think it TOTALLY has to do with the height of the person! If you're 4'11" to 5'2" or so then I wouldn't consider you thin if you were an 8. I'm almost 5'10" and I wear a 4/5.

  • This woman is in size 8 jeans, I wouldn't consider her thin, I'd say average. I don't know how tall she is though, maybe 5'5"?

    Not sure which code to use:

  • Personally I think it depends on height.... but let's go on average Height... 5'5"/5'6"... i think thin is a size 3/4. But if a girl is this height and has big hips, she could still look "thin" just have a big butt. Or a girl could have a tiny frame and wear a 00 and still look "thin" because she is built that way.

    SO to tie it all up.... I think THIN is when you don't have any rolls or chunk. That's thin to me. Too thin is when you can count ribs. Average is a little chunk. I'm Average... would love to be thin again

  • size 1 is thin. 3/5 is average and anything 9 and up is too big. imo.

  • I am 4'11" and I wear a size 6... I am far from thin... I have a lot of chub and rolls that hide underneath my sweater :o(

    I say a 0 to 4 is thin... guess it depends on their build too.
