In a preemptive bypass to the buffer StaightEdge Punk's presence would have been to the inevitable criticism, reporters made sure to emphasize Punk was "half the size" of the other wrestlers in WWE.

* Wrestling/LayCool referred to Maria Kanellis as "the underfed redhead" while they were also mocking Wrestling/MickieJames for being overweight. Giving this some uncomfortable RealitySubtext, Maria has confessed that she was told she was "too fat" by management.

For men the opposite holds true. Any male who isn't sporting [[MuscleAngst a six-pack, ripped pecs, or biceps as thick as oak trunks]] is often portrayed as, or is implied to be, scrawny and weak, [[DawsonCasting even if the character is supposed to be fourteen years old]]. Again, if you were to take these guys and compare them with a random selection of men in the real world, their bodies would not be seen as very average looking.

This is quite possibly a side effect of the entertainment industry's tendency to cast, and then depict, an entire slate of attractive and healthy people, except for when the plot demands otherwise.

* Tabloids. Pick one up at random and you'll see a Shocking Exposé of some star's Embarrassing Body Flab or Cellulite, accompanied by ancient stock swimsuit pics. Anyone with ten pounds of extra fat or more is considered "struggling with weight problems."

* {{Bratz}} are this. They've probably done less physical damage than Barbie though, because their bodies are more an anime style. What's more concerning is the stereotypes for fashion, makeup and hobbies that they set little girls.

* The ''[[Wrestling/WWESmackDown WWE SmackDown!]]'' writers deserve to be slapped for having Michelle [=McCool=] call Wrestling/MariaKanellis "underfed" when Maria has said she was told by management [[HollywoodPudgy that she was too fat]].
** The Wrestling/{{LayCool}} characters are probably a subtle TakeThat to this trope; one promo had Natalya insult them by saying their IQ was lower than their combined (non-existent) waist size. Of course you have the heels in the situation as two fashion-crazy {{Valley Girl}}s obsessed with their weight thinking that was a compliment.

* [[Wrestling/BellaTwins Brie Bella]] has gotten hateful comments hurled at her by fans claiming she looks like a stick insect and "needs to eat something". This is ignoring the possibility that she merely just looks much thinner because she is next to a lot of very curvy and muscular women on ''Series/TotalDivas''. Additionally the twins have said in interviews that Brie is naturally slimmer proportioned than Nikki. Additionally Brie is a vegan so she's bound to be a little less curvy than her sister. Showing how HateDumb really is in effect, her sister Nikki has gotten the reverse of this and been referred to as [[HollywoodPudgy "the fat twin"]].
** ''Series/TotalDivas'' does show the effects of this trope. Brie panics about an upcoming photoshoot and tries to get her sister to do a juice cleanse with her. As in drinking nothing but smoothies for 30 days. While a cleanse is often a good idea if one wants to detox after too much junk food, it's the sort of thing that should just be done for 2-3 days at most.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Wrestling/Layla}} said that her slim frame came about from an intense diet and working out twice a day. While recovering from surgery to repair a torn ACL, she naturally wasn't able to train quite that much, and gained a little bit of weight. She claims people asked if she had health problems.
* Wrestling/DawnMarie admits to being a stress eater and that her body type in WWE came about from excessive dieting (and she's admitted to not being a fan of exercise). When there were talks of her returning to WWE, she said if she were to she would need months of notice - in order to plan a diet to get to the ideal weight for TV.
* Subverted with Wrestling/AlexaBliss, who started training at WWE right after some time as a body builder. She was dangerously underweight as a result and was told she had to gain ten pounds before she could train.

* Nearly every woman in the show ''TrippingTheRift''. ''All'' of them, human and alien alike, have wasp waists and ''massive'' racks. [[{{Gonk}} T'nuck's]] race is the major exception.
