Advice for bizarre body shape

Please ignore the mess in the background. I was very stressed that day!!!

mffbs7eah00vw.jpg The attached photograph is me lying down as I normally would and, as you can see, my rib cage is very very prominent which I hate. I feel such obvious ribs, even when standing, make me look like I am far too thin even though my bmi is 24 so if anything I am close to overweight. Is there anything I can do to look less.....weird?

    Mine's the same.
    It's just the ribcage structure vs waist size.

    Nothing looks bizarre about you in the picture.

    I don't see ribs. Just the outline of a ribcage while you have gravity pulling your stomach below it. Perfectly normal.

    THIS.

    My ribs always stick up just like that when lying down. It's normal. Stop worrying about it!

    With your stats, the only thing that would be bizarre would be if your ribcage didn't look like that. It's perfectly normal. Nice tummy too, you have great looking skin B)

    That's normal. I used to think it was weird, too, and always thought it was just fat lumps -- it was only when I realized my bra was hitting on pure bone that I started Googling. Apparently that's super common in some people, and it's just how the ribcage flares.

    I'll echo what others have said - perfectly normal. I can see mine like that even when I'm standing up straight. My fiancé likes them... he calls them my riblets. :D
