    For the super-skinny, skeletal looking ones? Yes, they should have medical proof that they are healthy and it is their natural body type. For those who are thin but obviously healthy, it should not be necessary.

    Most people who are classed as obease complain about feeling unattractive, about being bullied, about being discriminated against. It makes them feels uncomfortable in their own skin. Sometimes, I don't think people realise that the same thing is now happening to thin people.

    I was very thin (naturally) when I was younger and got bullied badly for it. What sort of message does it send to people if you say "you're too thin to be beautiful"?

    I understand that there are health risks involved with thin models, but a better way to develop a healthy attitude to weight is to INCLUDE more plus size models, rather than BAN thin people.

    "Thin" gets a lot of bad press these days, which has a terrible effect on the self-esteem of "thin people" and also their body image. A lot of people can't help being thin and, as it goes, thin can be more healthy than being overweight. Obeasity is a huge problem for society, more and more people each day are at risk of serious health problems because they carry too much weight - banning thin models will just contribute to this problem.

    Yes. Skeletal models lead girls into anorexia, purging and too much exercise. They are very bad role models.

    Who wants models that look like they belong in a science room?

    I think its a good thing. It's one thing to be stick skinny because it is your natural figure like it was for me until I was about 17. It's an entirely different thing to be stick skinny because you're starving yourself.

    (Neither of these are me.)
    This was my natural body type when I was about 15:
    stick skinny girls

    This my natural body type now (post-puberty.)
    inverted triangle body shape

    Good for Israel! It would be nice to see curvy women on the catwalks again.

    Most people are killing themselves for the wrong reasons, one of them being skinny just because it's someone else's idea of beuatiful. It is by far the one of the best things I've heard being banned.

    I love skinny models, but I know its not healthy. I like a lot of unhealthy things. My friend from Sweden thinks they all look like holocaust survivors.
