    Default Would you be a size zero?

    Would you be a size zero?



    We're constantly bombarded with images of shrinking A-list stars, but what's the reality of being a size zero, a UK size four? With a 22-inch waist the shape is striking - as are the health implications.
    But how would you look? We manipulated the pictures of four ordinary women and STEPHANIE CLARKSON asked them - and their friends and boyfriends - how they thought they looked:




    Name: MARIE-LOUISE DOE
    Job: Shop assistant
    Lives: Worcestershire
    Size: Size 8
    Height: 5ft 5in, Weight: 7st 7lb
    Bust: 32B, Waist: 24.5in
    Hips: 32in, Thighs: 19in



    Marie-Louise says:
    'Although I'm slim, these photos show a world of difference between my current size and the infamous size zero. I look healthy and slim in the first photo but I'm horrified by the second one.
    Why would anyone want to look like this? The way my ribs and collarbones jut out make me look ill - I hate it.'
    Boyfriend Russell Collins says:
    'In the past I've teased Marie-Louise about being skinny, but having seen what "too thin" really looks like, I'll lay off her. If she lost that amount of weight I'd have huge reservations about her sanity.'
    Best friend Laura Collings says:
    'I got such a shock when I saw the photo of Marie-Louise as a size zero. Those scrawny thighs made me feel sick.'




    Name: CHRISTIE LEWIS
    Job: Physiotherapist
    Lives: Cheshire
    Size: 10
    Height: 5ft 8in, Weight: 9st 4lbs
    Bust: 34B, Waist: 27in
    Hips: 35in, Thighs: 21in



    Christie says:
    'Looking at the size zero picture, I think my face looks prettier and more sculpted. But I'd never want to be this thin - my chest looks completely emaciated. But the more I flick between the two photos, the more I lose sight of what looks normal. It really makes me appreciate the power of the image.'
    Boyfriend Edd Arterton says:
    'I think Christie looks dreadful as a size zero - her body is totally unfeminine. I'd never be attracted to her if she dieted to get this thin - she looks like an ironing board!'
    Mum Sue Lewis says:
    'I couldn't find anything to like about the 'thin' Christie. She looks scrawny, disproportionate and anorexic - it's horrible.'





    Name: CASSANDRA HALL
    Job: Royal Navy steward
    Lives: Plymouth
    Size: 12
    Height: 5ft 6in, Weight: 9st 11lb
    Bust: 34C, Waist: 30in
    Hips: 34in, Thighs: 20in



    Cassandra says:
    'I'm an English pear shape and don't like my legs and bum. So, my first thought when I saw the size zero photo was: "If only I had those thighs."
    'They're slender and don't meet. But it would also mean trading in my cleavage, which I love. In the second photo, my chest looks awful, and I hate the twiggy arms.'


    Husband Paul Hall says:
    'We got married recently and Cass tried to lose weight before, but if she'd turned up looking like this waif, I'd have keeled over at the altar.'

    Friend Carly Robinson says:
    'It was upsetting to hear Cass preferred her size zero thighs. It look like there's something wrong with the thin girl.'




    Name: GEMMA RILEY
    Job: Promotions
    Lives: Berkshire
    Size: 14
    Height: 5ft 3in, Weight: 9st 4lb
    Bust: 34D, Waist: 31in
    Hips: 38in, Thighs: 20in



    Gemma says:
    'I'm not happy with my current shape - I need to lose weight. I don't like either version of me but I prefer the torso of my size zero body -the way the smaller boobs fit into the bra rather than spill out of the sides as they do in real life.
    'But I don't like the way my body is just straight up and down in the picture. 'This has shown me that I need to work harder at the gym. I may be fit but I'm not my ideal weight.'


    Mum Angie Riley says:
    'Gemma has put on weight over the last couple of years and I don't think it suits her. But I don't like her as a size zero - she needs to find a middle ground.'
    Best friend Alison Quarnby says:
    'I think Gemma looks OK as a size zero, except for the scrawny limbs. If I'm honest Gemma is slightly overweight, but the "real" photo shows she has curves in the right places.'


    Name: BETH WATKIN
    Job: Housewife
    Lives: Nottinghamshire
    Size: 16
    Height: 5ft 1in, Weight: 11st 7lb
    Bust: 36D, Waist: 34in
    Hips: 40in, Thighs: 25in




    Beth says:
    'I was always plump until I became bulimic aged 17 and lost four stone in eight months. Although I've recovered, my friends and family warned that doing this might cause me to relapse, but it's achieved the opposite.
    'As a size zero my arms look undernourished and my face looks sharp and mean - like my personality has been sucked out. 'It scares me that I was once killing myself to look like this - it's served as a warning to stay on track.'
    Fiance Kirk Bilby says:
    'The thin version doesn't even look like Beth - and I definitely couldn't fancy anyone that bony. 'I hope she's finally realised that, in her case, big is beautiful.'
    Best friend Helen Whitehead says:
    'In the first picture Beth looks beautiful and confident. The second looks like a total stranger - and one who's a complete bore.'

    No. I like the female body shape and I intend to keep it. Why anyone would prefer to resemble a small boy is beyond me.

    I have been a size zero when I was very, very ill. I had no boobs, no ass, no curves. I looked like stick. I looked horrible. My face was gaunt and everyone thought I was going to die. So hell no. I like being a size 8.

    You are lucky to have the right kind of body frame for a size zero. It doesn't look so hot for the rest of us.

    no I agree some people lose too much weight and it looks really bad. I would love to put on some weight but then again it might not look right on my frame so I guess we should all just be happy as we are and not try to look like someone else

    I got pretty sick and lost so much weight that I wound up a size 0. This was a few months ago. I am pretty much eating whatever I want in order to gain weight and get back into my regular clothes, but am not gaining any weight or getting any bigger.

    I don't look frail anymore, but I am wearing my 11 year olds clothes for the most part. So my husband and I play a game. I call it the "Incredible shrinking boobs". I never had a butt anyways (oriental - known for having no butts).

    The bad thing is that I'm 5'2", so I'm still in my BMI, I'm eating a lot of meat and veggies, and drinking protein shakes, but no weight gain. My blood work is normal. My Dr's just can't explain it. I have this little pooch where my belly is, but that's it.

    I could get down to a zero if I wanted, I don't want it though because the first thing to go is my boobs, and I worked really hard bearing two boys and nursing to get these boobs.

    Honestly, I'd like to. Maybe I have a morbid curiosity, but I wonder how I'd look. I'm pretty short, so I don't think I'd look too hideously thin. That said, I don't think it's the epitome of perfection or anything.

    Right now I fluctuate between a 6 and an 8. I have serious belly fat I need to lose. I have always been incredibly thin my whole life, but certain things are catching up to me. When I was 16, I weighed 100lbs and was a size 0, but totally miserable because I looked like a boy and boys want to date girls with chests.

    Now I have curves. I have a nice little round butt, and although my chest is not large, it's ok. I wouldn't trade the curves for a size 0 any day.

    The after pics of last two women look a tad less scary than the first, but probably due to being shorter. Still, what makes all of these pics disturbing is the proportion changes in the women. The straight-up-and-down flatness. A rare woman who is a true size zero is one who will still propotionately resemble a woman at that size as opposed to a not-fully-developed-yet female child. The after pics of all these look like they took a prepubescent girl's body and superimposed onto it the head/face of an adult woman. Adult female bodies that are true size zeros (without deliberate dieting and exercise or phtoshop) for comparison purposes would have completed this article better.

    Being short myself, and knowing that sizes now are bigger than they used to be 20+ years ago when I completed puberty, I know I would probably still look good and retain my feminine curviness at about as low as a 2-4 (which used to be...and still is in the UK...a 6-8). But even I would not want to be a zero. The last time I was anything less than a 4 (after puberty, of course) it just didn't look right at all. A current US 4 is actually my dream size. I haven't managed to see less than an 8 since giving birth 8 years ago, so I'm sometimes curious if I would look anywhere like I remember looking when I was a 2-4, or if sizes have even changed a bit even since then?

    One stone = 14 pounds, right?
