    A guy on other thread where we were criticizing physical characteristics of each other mentioned something about small waist as something he doesnt consider is "right" but of course on his own opinion.

    The thing is my waist is 28 inches since I was 125 pounds(6'0" height), now im almos 180 pounds and still my waist is 28 inches, i thought it was cool cause it makes your back look really big. Now i wonder, is it good or not to have an extra-small waist? If not.....how can you gain a couple of inches there? Ive been working out my obliques my abs and everything it gets more defined but never bigger than 28 icon_confused.gif

    thanks in advance

    The fact that you have a 28" waist at 180 lbs is spectacular

    Good abs are healthy and it's what nearly every guy wants

    I think anyone who would criticize someone's "small waist" may be jealous?? Don't listen to such dopey comments

    A 28 inch waist is extremely impressive at any age, providing the guy is also built and muscular (which Charlitos definitely is).

    I would love to have a 28 inch waist! I am almost 6'2" and have a 32 so people tell me I look very thin anyway. Heck, I would be happy with a 30 waist! That guy was obviously jealous that you have it and he doesn't!

    You look great!

    It's all about proportion.
    Is your 28" waist in proportion to the rest of your body? Or do you appear to wear tortuous Victorian-era girdles while sleeping?

    At 6'3" I wouldn't want a 28" waist. My 31-32" waist - actual measurement altered by daily water intake - seems to barely have room for what I eat!

    I've got a 28" waist as well, but for me, the problem is that i've got hips to match a 30" waist. So the 30x 30 jeans go on, hit the pelvic bone on both sides, and still leave a nice couple of inces in the waistband even when sitting low, just above my hips icon_sad.gif
    I'd love to get my waist to hips ratio to be a little closer, but the bubble butt doesn't help, either **sigh** icon_neutral.gif
    guys seem to like it, but I know what you mean from the self-image standpoint bud.

    I had a 29" waist until about a year ago. At 6'4", many people told me that I looked sickly and anorexic, but I weighed 180ish, which is considered normal (according to BMI). There was nothing I could do to change my waist size... I ate like crap, didn't exercise or workout, and drank like a fish. But then all of a sudden when I turned 25 I "ballooned" up to a 32-33 in a matter of weeks. I now workout 6-7 days a week and nothing I do reduces my waist size. Not that I want to be a 29 again because I like the porportion better now, but I have hundreds of dollars in jeans that no longer fit!

    My advice to you ... is

    don't listen to men who tell you stupid things
    why would you want to Increase your waist size for ANY reason

    You got it right when you said that a small waist makes your back look bigger
    The smaller your waist in proportion to your shoulders the better a man looks body-wise
    stop doing oblique exercises before you ruin something good for yourself

    Don't worry about it. You're providing an important public service by being able to wear those Express slim-fit jeans that the rest of us can't even get pulled up to our knees.

    Sure, why not?

    I'm 150 and I have a 28 inch waist (at 27). Only way to make it bigger is to get fatter. Don't do that.

    I think it's amazing. Though I have had people tell me my waist looks like a girls' waist. And especially because I have big hips for a guy. My measurements are 36-29-39. I'd like to achieve 28 waist and at least an inch less on the hips but who knows. I just know that it's amazing if you're not square shaped in the core area.

    as long as your core is strong and can support you, I think you've got an amazing problem.

    Well, OK, for me it's close to that and (after much cardio and ab work) I (finally) got a 28 waist
