Advice for bizarre body shape

    It's perfectly normal.

    You might not think it looks normal because you've seen a lot of things like bone structure photoshopped out of models in magazine ads.

    *sigh* This is the world we live in...

    I can get that there are those times when you stretch and realize how creepy ribs are , but I assure you that having prominent ribs is completely normal as long as it's not accompanied with a super prominent spine. My ribs stick out at gawky angles that make yoga look weird but this also happens to many woman.

    You are a human with bones! Congratulations!

    Right? Perer Griffin wished to have no bones once. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but did not end well, as I recall.

    Mine are the same when I lay down and I'm still a bit overweight with a BMI of 25.5. It's perfectly normal.

    Some people have larger ribcages than others. Mine is large too so I can lose some weight and have ribs showing but still have a lower belly pooch. Not weird, just different body types.

    I'm obese, like 50 lbs over the high end of healthy BMI, and my ribs stick out and flare out weirdly when lying down. It's normal and you're fixating.

    My rib cage is HUGE!!! Most of the women in my family have the same thing. I actually asked the doctor about it and he smirked and said I could "remove a couple of ribs". LOLOL. Anyway - I live with it.... :/

    @emmaling142 If you want to talk about weird ribcages try having scoliosis. My hips are lopsided and my left ribs stick out weird...all the time, not just when I lay down. Get over it at move on with your life! Don't waste time worrying about things you can't control.3wequ2vd6x97.jpg

    Have you just recently lost weight? The only reason I ask is because I had been overweight for a very long time and when I finally hit a normal weight range I was surprised by the look and feel of my body...speaking of bones and all....

    I'm in a normal bmi range now but when lying down have the rib cage thing going on, and the most obnoxious bikini bridge (I think that's what the jutting hip bones are called). I was fixated on all that for a long time because it was so alien to me. Now I see that it's just my bone structure at a normal weight.

    Everyone has what you're showing though. For what it's worth you look just fine.
