<img alt="" src="" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br><span style="text-decoration:underline;">Does Sophia Loren's tiny waist freak you out or do you find it attractive?</span><br><br>
She's a beautiful woman. But her tiny waist scares me. Yet I realize that historically, a smaller waist is generally considered attractive. No, I don't have sources to back up that claim, well except for <i>Gone With the Wind.</i><br><br>

That waist might look just plain wrong, but she is unearthily gorgeous <img alt="tongue11.gif" src="">
I don't have much differentiation between waist and hips. A little but not much. I don't care as long as I'm healthy. Besides, I can wear clothes that create the illusion of a smaller waist (according to Stacy and Clinton...)<br><br>
Sophia is beautiful, but I'm not seeing the picture. Wait. Now that I see that particular picture, it actually appears photoshopped. But that could just be the angle of the shot.<br><br>
What do you think Martin? Or have you already responded?
I've never had a waistline. Or a flat tummy.<br><br><img alt="sad.gif" src=""><br><br><br>
To me, any body shape is attractive if in balanced proportions.<br><br>
Truth be told, I'd <b>LOVE</b> to have Sophia's drop-dead spectacular mouth and eyes. ~girlie swoon~
HI GB!<br><br>
When I posted I was much more impressed with her legs and hips than her waist!<br><br>
And I posted the series (which was shown on Slate yesterday) because I find the ideal beauty of yesteryears much more beautiful than today's.<br><br>
As someone saif in the RT thread: they knew how to make wimmins!

I bet she has a hard time finding a pair of jeans.
<img alt="smile.gif" src=""> Hi!<br><br>
I was just asking because I saw your name at the bottom of the thread, I hadn't seen the RT thread pics at the time.<br><br>
The pics you posted in RT are quite lovely and I agree they were beautiful. Sometimes I think the black and white photos are far more beautiful because they paid more attention to light and shadow.<br><br>
I have to make my bread now!
I remember reading this info a while ago.<br><br><a href="" target="_blank"></a>
I don't know about a Janet Jackson but I do know removable of the ribs was done ( and often at great risk to the woman ) in the mid nineteenth century, when defining the waist was the be all and end all of fashion. The hoop skirts, corsets and angled armscyes of the mid 19th century were all about making the woman's waist appear smaller. It did work I suppose.<br>
That woman with the 15 in waist is freakish. Wearing a corset 24 -7 to support the torso is sad but otherwise she seems healthy. Usually that distortion would displace the the inner organs and I would think affect the diaphragm and the ability to breath.

I'm happy to be thick and delicious. <img alt="smile.gif" src="">
So according to that not only am I less attractive because of my high waist hip ratio, but I am also not as smart. <img alt="sad2.gif" src="">
It is all about the curves. Sophia Loren is smokin'
I didn't intend for this thread to make anyone feel bad or like less of a woman.<br><br>
I should've expected that posting a picture of a woman and asking for opinions would take a thread in that direction. Sorry, all.<br><br>
Martin, the pictures are lovely!
Yeah, I thought that was f'd up. I'm sure if we wait a bit, some other group of scientists will find evidence that "proves" the contrary.
You would of course expect this of superheroes.<br><br><br><img alt="" src="" style="border:0px solid;">
I believe Monica would put your theory to the test.<br><br><br><img alt="" src="" style="border:0px solid;">
Amen. I like naturally slender women every bit as much as I like curvy women, if not more. I think demeaning them by attaching put-down labels is cruel and ignorant. Incredibly hot women who come to mind...<br><br>

I have a small waist, but I think it mainly appears so because of the big hips <img alt="wink.gif" src="">
When my mom was 18 she had a 23 inch waist!(her wedding dress).
