I'm a 5'5 and 115lbs 26 year old woman. Why do some people say I look like a skeleton and like I'm half dead just because I'm skinny?

my mom and sister say this crap. My mom always says I have no butt or boobs.

    I was 5'7" and weighed 115 lbs. when I was in high school and college. My roommate (same height) weighed 110 lbs. There were plenty of other girls around who were thinner. The average women today is heavier than back then. If you're getting grief from your mother and sister about your weight, they are probably jealous. You're thin, not "half dead." Just ignore them.

    Because to most women you're literally a freak of nature. I'm 5'5". When I was modeling in college I weighed between 118 and 120 most of the time. the average dress size worn by women in the U.S. is a size 16. What do you wear, a size 6, that's what I wear. So we're both freaks of nature to them.

    You're the correct weight. You were born no butt/boobs.
