Worryingly, one quarter of women would take it as a compliment if someone told us we looked too thin, reports a major newspaper.

The exclusive survey also found that many women blame “women” for making them worry about weight.

45 percent said it was their own gender rather than men who made them feel like they have to be thin.

The survey of 1,831 women across the UK also revealed that a vast 74 percent believe society - general portrayal of the image of beauty is currently too thin.
