* [[CiemWebcomicSeries Ciem]] is the closest to this that {{Machinomics}} are capable of committing. Almost every female character uses the same custom [[BarbieDollAnatomy "Barbie" mesh]] (Zenman's Curvy Default Replacement at Mod The Sims, with size B breasts.) Candi herself is extremely prone to narrowly avoiding being the poster girl for HollywoodThin, especially as a teen. Her sisters, however, are [[InformedFlaw implied]] to be slightly curvier with their clothes off; though there is little evidence in the written canon. Then again, since her sisters aren't superheroes, their being thinner [[ThisLoserIsYou is tolerated]], if not actually justified: not having Candi's job gives them an excuse to be laz[[strike: y]](-ier).

* Fashion photography has reached the point, in its ever-stricter search for vanishing thinness, where the models are starting to look like death warmed over. So, [[http://jezebel.com/5543863/an-editors-mea-culpa-on-making-thin-models-look-bigger the visible ribs, the bags under the eyes, the other signs of starvation are photoshopped away]], though, of course, the model remains as twig-thin as she was at the start. Readers are led to assume that this kind of body shape can be attained without looking like a walking corpse, and the search for a model who [[http://cache.gawkerassets.com/assets/images/39/2010/05/ralph_lauren_ann_taylor_photoshop.jpg actually looks like Gumby]] goes onward.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/BridgetJones'' presented a ValuesDissonance example. To pass as British, Creator/ReneeZellweger had to put on nearly three stones (42 pounds) to carry the part. To British eyes this made her appealingly attractive (and by no means fat). To American eyes she had become disgustingly obese. Renee had to lose this weight before she could get Hollywood jobs again. British fans of the film were appalled and asked if bridget had become dangerously ill or anorexic.

* Creator/MargaretCho jokes about this in her standup special ''Assassin'', talking about how women at awards shows always want to show off their collar bones.
-->(Valley girl accent) "Like oh my god! Look at this bone! Do you see this bone? I'm like, totally emaciated! Look at this bone, I'm almost dead! Like, look at this bone!"

* A lot of people tend to go on about how the Characters/WWEDivas are too skinny but it was quite a shock when Maria Menunous got in the ring and she looked like a skeleton next to Wrestling/AliciaFox, Rosa Mendes, Wrestling/GailKim and Wrestling/KellyKelly. Though the difference is obviously down to the divas being actual athletes and having muscle on them even if it's not too visible.

* On ''The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency,'' Janice very honestly seemed to believe there was no such a thing as "too skinny." When she was told it would be good for business to at least have a few plus-sized models on her roster, she was openly hostile toward them, saying (''in tears'') they were bad role models and wondering how she would be able to explain health, fitness, and nutrition to her young children and not sound like a hypocrite for employing them. This was then undercut by one of her models named Crystal (who Janice seemed to be grooming as her protege,) who later said she had dieted down so far she was no longer having her period, talking as though it were some kind of necessary sacrifice instead of the giant red flag it was.

* Hiko Seijuro in ''Manga/RurouniKenshin''. He spends a lot of time pumping iron [[spoiler: to offset the side-effects of the Hiten-Mitsurugi Ryu]], to the point where he has weights put into his [[BadassLongcoat trenchcoat]]. As a result, he has biceps the size of tree trunks, washboard abs, and huge pecs. Contrast this to his student, Kenshin, who does not spend as much time weight-training (and, while not flabby, is nowhere near as muscular as his teacher.)
