Skinny thighs unhealthy (article)
Here's yet another study that confirms what basic common sense should tell anyone - that being thin is unhealthy for women, and being full-figured is natural and advantageous.
A new study proves that having thin thighs is unhealthy - and not just a little unhealthy, but quite seriously so.
Here are the facts:
How sad that some women feel uncomfortable about having large thighs. Women are naturally predisposed to have fullness in this area - for good reason, as it turns out. Full, curvaceous thighs are beautiful figure features, and markers of health too - as are all features of plus-size beauty in women.
When will society finally realize that full-figured women are more beautiful and healthier than their underweight rivals? The fact that women have generous appetites is nature's way to give them the inclination to be plus-size, because that's their most attractive and healthiest condition.
Instead of fighting their natural instincts to be curvy, women should embrace them.

How interesting. This reminds me of another study that we discussed on this forum in 2007:
So not only are women with luscious hips and thighs healthier, their babies are healthier, too.
Re: Skinny thighs unhealthy (article)
Further on the health side, here's a new item that is a rare entity - an article that is mostly free of mixed messages, and is quite size-positive.
The title sets the tone right away:
Here are some highlights:
How refreshing to read an article which acknowledges something obvious, but what the media never acknowledges - that starving and exercising are harmful for women, and should be avoided.
It's also nice to see the article distinguishing between men and women, stating that women should be fuller, and men thinner. This accords with Classical ideals of beauty, which presented female goddesses as plus-size and men as muscular. Not only were those Greek ideals correct aesthetically, but health-wise as well.
The terminology in the article is excellent, especially when it refers to "the blessings [that] extra pounds bring with them" (in terms of health and beauty).
Also, notice that the article explains that any weight that is "beyond" the specifications is "good" (that's right - for women, it is literally good to be "over"weight), but a weight that is "lesser" than the specifications is "detrimental."
If only the media published more articles like this, women might finally realize that weight gain actually improves beauty and health, while diet-starvation and exercise-torture ruin both.
Re: Generous thighs healthy (article)
Like plump upper arms, generous thighs are particularly attractive aspects of full-figured femininity. As is evident from Classical sculpture and Old Master paintings, the great artists of the past loved to depict their goddesses with luscious thighs. They did so not primarily because they realized that these features were attributes of health (although they undoubtedly intuited this, since women with emaciated thighs were very obviously sickly looking, and still are). Rather, they did so because they considered these features sensual and beautiful. And so they are.
The studies cited in this thread offer ample grounds for plus-size models to be photographed with an emphasis on their full thighs; not to have these features hidden, or disguised, or minimized with Photoshop, but accentuated and celebrated. If women regularly viewed images of models with sumptuous thighs, they would feel comfortable, even proud, of possessing these figure features. They would feel beautiful--and healthy too.
