What would you change about your body? I'd like bandy legs!

I'd love bandy legs, like Kate Moss or Sarah Jessica Parker. I think they look fab and great in any style of clothing but especially skinny jeans. What would you like to be the proud owner of?

Thinner thighs, straighter whiter teeth. I have the bandy legs, I was very paranoid about them for year and would not wear a short skirt for years. Are they attractive then ?(now I'm too old for a short skirt!)

I'd like stronger teeth - mine are white and straight but gappy and cracked and full of fillings sad

And better shaped eyebrows, mine are just horrendous, beyond help.

Ten years ago I'd have said my massive bum, but I have had enough compliments from men since that I now know it to be my finest asset grin

Thick hair, I used to have it but it's gone now. And a better-defined waist. And a c-cup rather than a (small) b!!

Maybe we should have a thread about what we like? I LIKE my legs until the top of my thighs and my arms and my big smile!

A waist would be nice. I've been all sorts of weights and sizes, but have never had a waist. sad

Now I have a sort of "anti-waist", which is of course very unhealthy and needs to change - but however hard I slim down, I still won't get a waist.

Legs and face without hair where it shouldn't be.

I love swimming, I hate shaving my legs.

As for face well obviously the hairs there are unwanted and unnecessary.

Superene Fri 12-Apr-13 00:18:24

I'd like to look more "expensive" without having to pay for better skincare, haircuts, gym membership, manicures etc.
But I like my height, legs and boob size. Not the muffin top and wobbliness though obv.

A reasonably flat stomach

No chin hair

CarpeVinum Fri 12-Apr-13 00:24:34

I like my face to spring back where it used to be.

In fact can I just have my brain transplanted into a far younger, much better looking new body/head please.

Thank you for your kind attention in this matter.

MissFredi Fri 12-Apr-13 00:30:28

I'd like an extra couple of cup sizes and slightly less of a torpedo nose!confused

ellesabe Fri 12-Apr-13 09:05:38

Smaller boobs (I'm 32HH), thicker hair, flat stomach.

BinksToEnlightenment Fri 12-Apr-13 09:11:15

I'd love boobs that would not fold themselves into a strange shelf when I lie on my side. They're fine standing up. I'd also love to be able to see without glasses and to sort my crow eyes out.

But the one thing there is no hope for is my stupid invisible eyelashes. I'd have the biggest fan like thick fluttery dark eyelashes if I could.

BistoBear Fri 12-Apr-13 09:11:27

Stronger, whiter, straighter teeth and perfect eyes which didn't require lenses/glasses. Imagine waking up with perfect vision and flashing a perfect white smile smile

DonDrapersAltrEgoBigglesDraper Fri 12-Apr-13 09:21:00

Happy with my height, and my stomach is flat under clothes, at least. My hair is, if anything, too thick.

I would love parallel (not bandy) thighs, and I would love no muffin top. I'm working on both, wine aside.

Pandsbear Fri 12-Apr-13 11:12:57

Oooh am liking this thread. Well on a purely vanity side of things and not the medical issues I have...I would have perfect eyesight, and another 3 inches (on my legs please to balance out my looong body) and lovely thick hair. Same sort of hair only vastly more of it. Thanks.

LittleAbruzzenBear Fri 12-Apr-13 11:17:08

Long thin legs, lean arms, longer eyelashes, perfect white teeth, thicker hair, toned tummy, higher cheekbones, bigger eyes......or failing that just to look how I did when I was 26!

Willow36 Fri 12-Apr-13 11:22:22

My list:

Smaller boobs
Thinner face
Flat stomach
Less stretch marks
White teeth
Olive skin
Hair that was manageable
Longer legs

I think I'd just like to be someone else actually sad

Halfling Fri 12-Apr-13 11:40:05

My teefs... Crooked and with gap originally. Now ofcourse they look perfect after spending £££ on cosmetic dentistry - braces, caps, teeth extractions, root canals...

But it would have been nice if I had them naturally. I spent my teenage years using my hand to cover my mouth every time I smiled grin

BikeRunSki Fri 12-Apr-13 11:43:55

Eyes that didn't need glasses.
Quite like my rounded tummy!

Charliefox Fri 12-Apr-13 11:46:05

Well teeth are clearly a theme!

SayMama Fri 12-Apr-13 11:50:11

Oh so much!

Thinner face
Thicker hair
Smaller hips
Smaller feet (just a 6 would be nice rather than enormous 8!)
Non flabby belly

Fedupnagging Fri 12-Apr-13 11:53:11

Where do I start?!

Definitely a flat stomach first, then smaller thighs, maybe whiter teeth and naturally straight hair.

giftwrappedkittycat I was also scoffing mini eggs and quaffing wine at the same time as you last night grin

What are bandy legs?

trice Fri 12-Apr-13 12:03:54

I would love muscles in my arms. I like that super sporty look.

Charliefox Fri 12-Apr-13 12:04:01

These are bandy legs
