    - In this superficial world of anorexic women models setting ‘the standard’ for how women should look, is there room for healthy full-figured women to attract their husbands and let other women know that a natural body is beautiful? -

    There are women who are not obese and yet they do not qualify to be models as they are still
    not thin enough. Society, the media and many fashion companies put pressure on women to be as
    thin as possible and this is not right. Fuller women can still look very sexy and attractive in plus size
    lingerie and they should be proud of how they look when wearing online lingerie.

    The sad thing is that this type of pressure can cause women to do weird things to their bodies
    such develop anorexic and bulimic behavior. Some women have done irreparable damage to their
    bodies in attempt to look as thin as possible. Friends have encouraged these women and family
    members gain weight, as they look unhealthily thin.

    Some people are overweight for reasons other than overeating and the converse applies as
    well, some people are very thin but not due to the fact that they eat too little. Some women have
    incredibly quick metabolisms and they are able to eat what they like and they will still be very thin.
    Fuller women should not feel that they have to look like these thinner women just to be sexy in plus
    size lingerie.

    There are dangers associated with being too thin and women need to be aware of this. Being
    too thin can bring about a host of other problems with it. Women can experience menstrual
    irregularities when they are below normal weight. Another symptom of this is anemia or signs of
    vitamin deficiency. People who are vitamin deficient are usually malnourished and this is often as a
    result of being below normal weight.

    Women who are very thin will have bones protruding and palpable through their skin and
    apart from being unhealthy it does not look good at all. Body weight that is less than 15 percent of
    ideal weight is far too thin. These are some of the dangers that are associated with trying to be too

    Magazines are full of stories about people who are trying to lose weight and many of them
    are public figures. Many experts believe that the underweight problem is equally problematic as the
    obesity problem. Apparently close to 50 million Americans are underweight and 5 percent of all
    deaths in the country are related to being underweight. As many as 17% of the population is more
    than twenty five percent underweight. One wonders how these figures would be different if there
    was not so much pressure on young women to be thin just so that they can wear online lingerie.
