Too Skinny Bride?



I found this post on 100 Layer Cakes blog and I saw what everyone was posting as the comments saying that she was too skinny and needed to eat some more. So I wanted to post it for you all to see and see what your opinion was.

In my opinion she is very pretty and she is too skinny though, she looks beautiful but with her collar bone showing that badly, it doesn't justify how pretty she actually is. It sort of takes away from the beauty.

I am not trying to bash her or anything, I like skinny, I'm a fan of either.. I just think she's gorgeous but I also believe she might be a tab bit too skinny. She would be gorgeous either way.

Beautiful wedding though!!

I saw this post on 100 layer cake after the comments were closed, and I just thought how rude to talk about someone's weight.

Seriously, when there's a "chubby" girl and we say, oh lord, she needs to lay off the chocolate, people will get mad.

Why talk about someone when they're thin??

Some people are naturally thin, some people are ill, some people can't control it, some people think they look good, who cares???

She's a pretty girl, yes she's thin, but that's not what the whole point of this was.

I'm in love with her wedding dress. it's SO gorgeous. But she does look exceptionally skinny. Does anyone know if it's just the way she is, though? She is a gorgeous girl but she looks like she could be 10x more beautiful with like... 10 extra pounds even.

oh my, i am all for losing that extra bit of weight for your wedding day etc. but...um, that is rather extreme.

Don't get me wrong, I love seeing skinny girls and I try to maintain my small frame, make it smaller if I can but chest bones showing? Eww.

I'm with Margarita...that's basically what I said on another post where some mentioned the girl needed to eat.

Ugh, double standards!

touche to margarita.. i agree w/ her 100%. weight, esp when it' someone you don't know personally, should never be a topic of discussion. you don't know their circumstances. personally, i think the girl looks great!

i think she's a tad too skinny...but i don't feel like i could judge her. it may be due to a diet (or something awful like an eating disorder) but it could be her natural metabolism.

Anna said...

some people are just that skinny. i am, & i eat like a 300 lb man with an oreo addiction. i think she IS wearing my dream dress!!

OceanDreams said...

I think she makes a lovely bride but it could be quite possible that she might have an eating disorder. Either that or there are girls that are naturally thin, who knows.

I defenietly think she is beautiful, but I agree with some of the other girls I think its time we stop seeing people weight wether big or small, its just rude and we just need to learn to love ourselves and everyone just the way they look. I know I would not like being judged on my wedding day as "too fat" so I wont call this beautiful bride "too thin". lovely dress :)

Helena - A Diary of Lovely said...

i think she looked gorgeous and her wedding is one of the best I'v seen lately, the dress suited her and the whole inspiration was beautiful. yes, she is thin, and skinny, but to me in this case it doesn't really mean anything, I tend to think it's part of her job, she is a fashion editor at Marie Claire I think... and I totally agree with Margarita.

Yes, I am a bit sad that people would comment about anything other than her wedding, seeing as it was posted on a very lovely wedding blog. If we all started commenting on how 'fat' a person was in their wedding dress, people would be outraged! Both she and her wedding are gorgeous.

Nina said...

who's anyone to judge someone they don't know to say they're "too" anything. how does anyone know she's not naturally that skinny? if she was 175 lbs would someone dare write to say she's too fat? i doubt it.

spanky* said...

i agree with the other girls about how it shouldn't have been a topic for discussion & that poor chick probably gets crap like that all the time.

Teresa said...

I'm really tiny-5/2 and 98lbs and I usually stick up for skinny girls and call out the haters-but I actually gasped when I saw the picture. She is painfully, unaturally thin. She is pretty and her dress is amazing but something looks very wrong to me.

Zee said...

I don't think its a matter of "she's too skinny/fat" as far as the idea she doesn't fall into the proper aesthetic specification. It's just that when it comes to someone as skinny as that, I look at the picture and genuinely worry for her health.

Maybe she is perfectly healthy, or maybe has just a minor thyroid problem, who knows. But I think people get upset at the idea that a bride might purposely make herself that skinny just to fit the modern ideals of beauty. If you are starving yourself to be a size 2 on your wedding day, that is not beautiful; being your natural self is.
