ExtraSmall: For Naturally Skinny Girls and Women


Hey there! Thanks for stopping by!
Extrasmall.me is the online community for naturally thin people. This website is not a whining place for skinny people to get together and cry our little hearts out, it's a place to celebrate our uniqueness! We believe all women are beautiful. Whether you're round, square, or toothpick-sized: you deserve to be respected. After all,  beauty comes in ALL sizes (yes, even if you have to shop in the junior section).
Here are the women behind the blog posts:


I created this website because I was looking for a site like this myself - and couldn't find it.
I've always found myself to be a rare type: I can eat whatever I want, and still stay skinny as a toothpick. Might sound like the ideal bodytype, but being different is not always easy (running around in the shower to get wet is t-i-r-i-n-g). All joking aside,  I often felt overlooked and misunderstood because of my small frame. I started this site for a school project, and it quickly grew into an amazing community. If you want to know more about me: check my story here, follow me on Twitter, or send me an email: contactextrasmall@gmail.com (I read & reply all emails).

I've been naturally thin all my life. I think its fate I’ve been allowed to express my personal opinions on a site such as the wonderful Extra.Small.me.I'm 20 years old and from the UK, about to start an Illustration degree. My passions include art and design, literature, music, activism, philosophy and psychology! I enjoy baking cakes and eating them, as well as singing and generally trying to be a great multi-tasker because I am a Virgo and Virgos are said to be perfectionists!

    It’s great to finally find a site where so many thin people congregate. I’ve always found the lean beautiful; even as a little boy. Bigger boobs and rounder butts have never been better to this guy. Sir Mix-A-Lot certainly was not speaking for me in his song “Baby Got Back” when he said, “To the bean pole dames in magazines, you ain’t it Miss Thing. Give me a sister can’t resist her. Red beans and rice didn’t miss her.”

    But unfortunately, there’s a real shortage of the small these days and I’m tired of defending my attraction to thin women, to the masses who aren’t so thin. The frumpy accuse me of being shallow and warn that the slim ladies in my fantasies do not exist. However, I’ve spent many an hour strolling South Street in Philadelphia, people-watching, and while the petite are few and far between, they do nonetheless exist and they’re healthy too. No one can inspire physical attraction and romance in my heart better than a svelte lady weighing less than 115 pounds and who carries a BMI of less than 15%.

    Well, there’s nothing wrong with those of you like this, and this site has restored my faith that you are out there in bigger numbers than I’ve imagined. I’d like to say thanks to the authors for creating this site and hope that it’s around for a long, long time. Good job!

    Hey Tom, I know where you’re coming from. My boyfriend has to deal with the same thing. Nowadays men who claim to prefer ‘curvy, real’ women are seen as the paragon of progressive thinking towards body image, and are congratulated for it. However, if a guy prefers the opposite, he’s secretly a pedophile or gay, or spends his time stomping on puppies in shallow, eating disorder-loving bliss. Either way, you are voicing a preference for physical appearance, so is one really better or worse than the other?

    Oh, and don’t worry. Despite people spreading the idea that svelte ladies only exist on the pages of magazines, it seems to me there are just as many of us as there are bigger people.

    wow FINALLY some people who understand!!!!! this might be the greatest website I’ve ever come across!

    I’m a very tiny person at 4’11″ tall and around 90-95lbs. I’m 19, but definately done growing. I’ve always had the damndest time shopping for clothes and whatnot, and people just don’t understand how difficult it is to find something that fits me! I’ve walked into stores and been told that the smallest pants size in there is size 4. You can often catch me ranting, calling these sized 4 people fat out of frusteration. I’m a size 0 naturally, which alot of people don’t believe. Infact they dont even know size 0 exists! I’m really tired of “normal” or “plus sized” women complaining about how all clothes are made for skinny people. I can go into any store, and pull out at LEAST 5 or more XLs from a rack!!! Yet I can hardly ever find size XS, and when I do, they’re often STILL too big!!!! Since more and more people are becoming bigger, the world compensates for them by making larger clothes, which leaves us small people out in the dust. If bigger people can complain and get what they want, why can’t we? This is truely unfair!!

    …sorry I ranted, but I had to!!

    Thank you for making this website!

    Evee. I understand. We skinnies just have to get through this and love ourselves for who we are. Thats easier said then done. I’m still trying to find clothes that fit but its really hard when people just make these dumb little comments about whats wrong with me. They think that its so easy to gain weight and they expect us to go home and sleep at night after being harrassed by their judgements. As if it wasnt hard enough having to except tht we cant fit into any clothes. But somehow i bet we’ll find a way.

    Hi All,

    Although many think naturally super skinny figure is associated with ladies, I’m those minority naturally ultra thin guy. For the general perception of man, they are expected to have some manly look.

    There is not many resources available for naturally underweight man. Thus, I’m looking for reputable and scentific proven safe material. If you know of any such useful resource, please share with me and the community.

    Personally, I see this blog as a useful peer learning and crowdsourcing for naturally thin people. Thanks.

    In fact, I have just writen an article title Born To Be Super Thin. Its URL link is http://omnigens.wordpress.com/2009/10/16/000015/ . This is writen by a Gen Y blogger who recounts his personal experience in growing up as a naturally dangerously thin person.

    Also, there is some useful insight for both genders who are naturally thin in this article.

    hello there! it’s so nice to hear that i’m not alone in being naturally thin. i’m a 26 year old woman 5 foot 4 and about 100 lbs. i’ve also been criticized my entire adulthood for my size. everything from eating disorders to drugs, none of which i have a problem with. i consider myself a pretty healthy person, i eat well and exercise. i’m just naturally thin!! i’m lucky though in that i have a twin sister who is a skinny minnie just like me, so i’ve always had her right there with me! i try very hard not to let peoples comments bother me and it has gotten easier with age. to all the other little ladies out there don’t let people bring you down! we were put on the earth this way and are beautiful! Beauty is in the eye of the beholder! i realize that while i may not be “attractive” to everyone my small size may be becoming to others and most importantly to me!

    This website is a Godsend. Finally a place where healthy skinny women can come together and share their stories. I’m 18, 5’5, 107 pounds and of course, SKINNY. I have an average body – from chicken legs to small breasts and I’ve always tried my best to be happy with my body. It hasn’t always been easy. All through high school I was unhappy with everything about my body. Everyone I knew always acknowledged the fact that I was skinny, and it turned me bitter at one point. I would always have a smart answer like “tell me something I don’t know” or something to that nature. The most hurtful thing that ever happened was when a guy told me I looked “anorexic.” I was in total shock because I really didn’t think that I looked that way and it hurt me that others did. I have grown a lot since then and I learned not to be bothered by what others think of me. Sometimes I get weak and get totally depressed about how I look and it really bums me out. Luckily I have a wonderful boyfriend who loves me for who I am and is always there to encourage me :) I am very happy to meet all of you and to the author of this site, THANK YOU!

    I am 93 pounds and 5’6″. And I’m still growing… but I can’t gain weight.

    Once, in English class, we were saying synonyms for the word “Thin” or “Skinny”. You know what the guy next to me said? Anorexic. And my teacher agreed.

    I’ve read some of the guy’s comments on this site and it makes me feel a lot more confident. And knowing I’m not alone is nice. =D

    I am SO glad I found this website. I am 15 (and a half, lol.) 5’6, and I am around 98 pounds. Being skinny has completely ruined my self confidence since I was around 11. People would say ‘Oh you’re so skinny!’ and ‘Do you eat??’ and at first I would laugh, but it’s really difficult now, because not only do girls bitch about me and accuse me of being anorexic/bulimic – I have been asked by teachers. Yep. And I have NEVER had a boyfriend because every boy I have gotten close to decides I’m way too thin? Like they can’t deal with it. It’s really difficult when you have nobody to relate too. Thankfully though, I found this website, and reading the comments has helped. <3 <3 Good luck to everyone trying to gain weight :)

    I am so glad I came across this website it has really shown me that I am not alone. I’m 18 (turning 19 the 11th) and I’m 4’11 1/2 and I’m 91lbs, even though I have so called “noticable” breasts I have no ass and it makes me feel so bad that my cousin who is turning 13 soon is bigger then I am in both areas. Most guys say that we complain about our weight and I’m like well when you tell us to shove cheeseburgers down our throats what do you want us to say? I also came across this guy who was so insecure about being fat that he said I didn’t have a RIGHT to be insecure because I’m skinny! It makes me feel so angry that people think because we are skinny we don’t have a right to be insecure or that we don’t eat and it really gets to me sometimes. Also I’ve met guys and girls who say I should have bigger boobs. I have spine problems because of a tumor on my spine when I was 2, I can’t handle pressure on my back so what do they expect? FF’s? If so I’d be in a wheelchair! I really hope that people can open their blind eyes and realize that we have feelings and problems with our weight just like everyone else, in fact when I look on that scale and even if I have lost 2lbs I FORCE myself to eat even if I’m not hungry it’s sad but when I see myself lose weight I’m scared that my boobs are going to be the next thing to go, I just wish that I could let go and just enjoy myself and my body, I always looked for a website for support and I think I may have finally found one.

I have struggled with being naturally slim yes but now I am one for being proud of it- accepting it as a gift- using it and loving it and showing it off! Us naturally slim babes need to stay strong and stick together and support each other- keep giving each other support and compliments and links to sites such as this- keep in touch- keep updated with info to do with this kinda stuff. Its time we naturally slim sexies stood up for ourselves! :)

I’m African American so you know I get it the worse since our women are known for being so voluptuous. I’m so tiny! And if i lose 5 lbs it’s looks like i’ve lost 10. Oh did i mention that I have A babies lol?! It’s so difficult to find tops that fit because of my boobies and jeans that fit because of my narrow hips! I am going to take some pointers from you all in hopes that i can find more clothing that can fit me I appreciate the help! LOVE YOURSELF THE WAY THAT YOU ARE GOD BLESS!

    I have google “how to gain weight for skinny people” and this website pop up. I have read comment on small boobs, small but, and be thin. Im just like you. I been skinny my whole life. People have made fun of me in middle school and high school for being short and skinny, or having small boobs. Im 20 now and going to be 21 next month and still have small boobs, small butt, im tiny. alot ppl called me “small Jessica, french frie, smidget, short, little bit” I laugh it off but it hurt inside. I have never like my body. Now still struggling too. The older I get the more I hate my body. I love to work out, but I dont do it to be skinnier, no, I doing it to gain muscle. and I even have the protien powder shake…I still look the same and often lose alot of weight. I have also brought these shake to help you maintain your weight or help “gain weight”. but nothing have change. I always joke with people about how “I eat like a big girl, but stay as a small girl.” and alot of my friend would joke calling me “lucky skinny bitch.” I laugh but when I go out or go shopping, I hate trying on mini dresses cuz of my body type. I dont have the curve, the ass, or the boobs. and I have since middle school stuff my bra to make them look bigger. and now I dont do that but I wear push up bra. and I wear double pants to make me look more filler. I know when they say “A guy will like you for you.” But the thing is I need to love myself before anyone else does.

    [[Moderator: If you approve, could you delete the previous post and use this one instead please? I put in some needed paragraph breaks...]]

    Hey ladies – Jessica Ceballos – Wendy – Kristi – beckii – Brittany – ALL – A Testimonial -

    Sorry this is so long, but I’m thinking maybe a few could learn from my experience as a former natural skinny. The pounds will come! (Whether you want them or not.) You are all very young yet. Read on.

    Firstly, I landed here b/c I decided to look online for cute AA bras for my itty bitties ;) (Proud!), since stores are impossible. Really found your article “What To Do with Extra Small Breasts” super helpful, and plan to buy some bras from Lula Lu, thank you so much!

    I’m 35 and tall, 5’10″ and had always been naturally skinny too. I was picked on in Jr. high – or envied, I couldn’t really tell – for being sooo skinny. I heard the same things – “don’t you eat??” I hated it. But as I grew up I grew more confident and into my 20s I loved my body and felt blessed to be thin and sexy! I was a constant healthy 135 lbs (145 is average for my height) until a couple years ago. I continued to believe into my 30s – as recent as a couple years ago – that I could eat whatever I wanted and never gain weight like other people did…Everyone around me was counting calories while I never bothered. Calories? What calories??

    At 29 I was more skinny than ever before, I believe from nursing my baby for three years (which was a joyful time) and not really replacing all those calories for my fast metabolism. I weighed just 120 lbs, really underweight for my height. I didn’t like it, so I decided I really wanted to gain weight because I was tired of being too skinny and bony. I wanted some meat on my bones! I wanted a rounder curvier body. I got my body fat (BMI) measurement taken when I joined a gym, and it was too low at 17%. I didn’t use the gym to work out. Instead, I just ate ice cream! The yummiest highest fat Breyers brand. Mostly I joked about it, that this was my way to get some curves…

    Well since then for the last six years I’ve worked long days at computers as a graphic designer, which makes me tired, and because of that I don’t feel like exercising. I don’t get good regular sleep (I’m a night owl) which of course makes me tired. Add all that together plus aging beyond 30 and finally…cRaZy hormones! All out of whack.

    So inevitably, BAM! Over this past fall and winter, the weight arrived! Since last summer I have gained 15 lbs! Crazy! I am now 160 lbs, the most I’ve ever weighed in my life! So now I have too much weight (my butt, tummy and thighs), and want to work it off! Oh no! I finally have the curves I wanted and it’s okay… it’s different. But my pants have been shrinking steadily and I totally have a belly roll when I sit and love handles to burn and I want to get my toned arms and butt back!

    In other words, if I don’t start working out and sleeping better NOW, I’ll only keep gaining weight, and with weight comes health issues, mainly heart disease and diabetes! Yikes! I’ve never had to be concerned about what I eat before, so this is all new to me. And cellulite – I never had it until I turned 30! THE CELLULITE WILL COME. Beware of turning 30. Believe me, girls.

    So…if by 27-30 years old you notice you’re getting a cute little extra roll of belly fat that you like to squeeze and giggle at, beware, and DO exercise regularly, because it will grow and grow and grow! My mom said to me at 31, “You’d better be careful – you won’t like that so much in a few more years!” I just laughed and shrugged my shoulders. I really thought I’d never gain weight – whilst enjoying big sweet scoops of my fave ice cream. I SHOULD HAVE LISTENED TO MY MOTHER!

    So as an alum of the School of Skinny Mini – If you want to stay slim and flab free, take good care of yourself. Get regular exercise! Eat healthy (healthy fats and other fats included, in moderation). Get a good night’s sleep regularly (as I type this after midnight…sigh…). No junk food after 25 y.o. (Ha! As if!) All the rules I let go of long ago because I thought I’d stay skinny (and 20) forever. Here’s to better habits and getting my abs back!

    Best wishes!

    Well i saw A wonderful woman on Friday, she was about 5’6″ thin and small breasted; but it seemed she had on clothes that were better suited for yard work, not Office work, when Thin women have on the clothes that fit them perfect they seem to catch more looks from both men and women, Thank you for allowing me a place to talk about thin and small breasted women they ROCK!!!!

    I have to disagree with Kristen. Everyone is different, and some of us really do stay effortlessly slim forever! Not all of us, but some of us. There are women in their 50′s who have posted their stories here. I suggest reading them before internalizing any doomsday scenario of what will happen to you once you reach (gasp!) 30.

    I am older than Kristen (turning 38 next month). My 30′s have brought me the best body of my life! And my late 30′s are turning out to be even better than my early 30′s. I am an effortless size 2. Well, I shouldn’t say “effortless” because I have to overeat in order to maintain my size. When I eat only the recommended 2000 calories a day, I drop to size 0 or 00. I have also had two children. I would still prefer to be a size 4 or 6, but I’m not complaining. I can live with size 2.

    True, I am not as skinny as I used to be. For me, that’s a good thing. I spent most of my life having a BMI of only 16. I was bullied mercilessly, and completely understand what many of you are going through. Having children really helped fill out my figure. I now have a BMI of 19 and, despite still being slim, I finally have the curves I always wanted. Most people guess me to be around 25. This is due in part to my figure, and in part to having worn sunscreen daily since my early 20′s. Sometimes people still give me crap about being skinny, but it’s not nearly as bad as before. I’m at the stage where other people are just mad that I’m not aging like they are.

    I started lifting weights about a year ago, hoping to gain a few more pounds. I haven’t gained any weight, but I’m more defined. I also feel better being physically strong. I recommend weightlifting to anyone of any size. If you’re like me, you won’t bulk up; you’ll just feel great and have amazing abs!

    I hope younger women can find my story inspiring. Again, everyone is different. Things might get better for you, like they did for me. Eating right and exercising is good advice for anyone (although I can’t say I eat right, lol). There will always be people wagging their finger, telling you to watch out because one day it will catch up to you. Well, it might. But it might not. For me, life is too short to deny myself of the food I love. Finally being happy with my body is just an added bonus!

    Thanks for your website, Extrasmall!
    I’m 49 and have been naturally thin all my life (right now 5’6″ and 112lbs), although I got a bit “rounder” after high school (I was 5’6 and 98 lbs in 9th grade!). Getting older and getting close to “change of life” has not changed my natural thinness.
    I am writing to encourage you in keeping this site going–it has the potential to be a great resource for all of us thin people.
    To all of the younger thin women out there–try to relax and enjoy, as much as possible, being thin! Give yourself a chance–you may very well fill out later even after you think you are done “growing”. It is important that you find clothes that fit (this site helps!) because that will make you feel good about yourself–don’t do what i did for so many years when I was young–hide behind baggy clothes (they were in fashion in the 80′s, that didn’t help!) You will find boys and men who like small women (I did!), and you will likely look much younger than women your age who are larger sized (when you get into your late 30′s and 40′s especially, you will love it–I do!) We are all humans and we all see our own “flaws”, the reality is that we are all beautiful in our own way, we need to learn to love ourselves as we are! (American media has done a “great” job of brainwashing so many women, especially, as to what is “beautiful”–remember, behind those “perfect” images are real people with their own imperfections!)
    One last thing, for those of you who want to stay healthy and have a hard time keeping on weight (Lord knows, I do!) I recommend http://www.westonaprice.org, a non-profit organization devoted to information on traditional, healthy eating–you’ll find lots of info on nutrient dense foods there.
    Thanks again, “Extrasmall”!

    I have a website and I would love to feature your blog. It is aimed at the naturally thin/underweight from a health perspective. Would it be ok if I posted a link to your site. Your blog was one of the first that I came across that inspired me. Thanks, Aime

    What a lovely website. You are lovely and such an inspiration to naturally small young women. I’m sick of being called ‘anorexic’ and ‘flat chested’ when I am my natural size and very healthy. Am on the path to self acceptance but it’s not always easy. A really well put together website, my congrats to you! :-)

    I am also called anorexic and walking skeleton. I am 48, 5′ 1 1/2″tall, 109 lb. I can tell you girls, I do not look anorexic. I am just tinny. I bothers me so much when people call me names.
    I can relate to all of you.

    Love to all

    very briefly, i’ve also always been super skinny until I reached puberty. then i had gotten almost chubby but, soon after, I lost it all again. so, your weight is also closely correlated with hormones (aside from the skinny gene). Anyway, I really enjoyed your site and was wondering if you could share some tips on skinny faces as well. along with my thin body, i have a very thin face that makes my features look oversized. any tips on make up? haircuts? even exercises?!?! these things are difficult to find and I would really appreciate any info you may have. Millions of thanks!

    Hi Pelpina, I really love your site. I’ve had problems with my weight all my life, but I’ve struggled and done unhealthy things to try and slim down as I’ve always been naturally big. I came across your site when I was looking for body positive sites. I have naturally skinny friends who suffer from the same problems, some of which because of various illnesses, and I’d just like to say that I understand. I know a lot of big girls who have been really mean to skinny girls and I always point out, they go through the exact same problems. We’re all women suffering from discrimination, we should be in this together! Us big girls should offer support instead of spreading more hate, and I agree it’s unfair that people think skinny women don’t have problems. Tall, short, skinny, fat, we’re all human and deserve respect and support. Your website is amazing and the more I read, the more I understand how much skinny women go through, and I just wanted to say to keep up the good work. I know this is a website for skinny women so I’m sorry for butting in, just wanted to offer my support :)

    Thank you SO much for sharing your thoughts. You absolutely nailed it. Us women should support each other — no matter what body type. We’re all human and deserve respect and support! Thank you for taking the time to show yours :)

    I came across this website and I was so excited to see the list of stores that carry XS sizes for women! I am naturally skinny, but I also lost a lot of weight from cancer treatment last year. Ever since then I’ve had a very hard time finding clothes, especially shirts, that fit. You’ve made it so very much easier for me and I greatly appreciate it. Keep up the awesome work.

    Hi Chloe,
    I really appreciate you leaving a note.
    Sorry to hear you lost a lot of weight from cancer treatment. Sounds like you’ve been through a lot. I’m so glad some of my blog posts could be of help!
