BMI bugger up

Thanks to Susie @ Everyone Loves A Boston Girl, I will be glued to my computer all day. She posted a link to a brilliant Marie Clarie Hair Makeover virtual thingy, and I of course had to have a go - then found the virtual 'try on clothes' model - heck, who wouldn't?!

I entered my height, followed by my weight...

AND THEY WOULDN'T ACCEPT IT. It came up with a pop up window telling me I cannot weigh 115 pounds and be 5ft 10, as it's below the acceptable Body Mass Index.

Um. What the? First they tell me my BMI is too low if I wanted to model in Milan (ha!) as only a BMI over 18 is acceptable (apparently any one under that is anorexic), and now Marie Clair wont let me play dress ups unless I tell them I gained 5 kilo.

Well, pass the chocolate is all I can say.

{Update: I didn't like any of the outfits anyway, so I choose to walk on the pier in my default knickers. Isn't I sexy?}

I can't believe they said you were too skinny!! How rude.

I didn't realize you could do outfits...totally going to try this asap!!

Thanks for helping me waste more time...something I totally did not need help with!

I cant believe they wouldn't let you virtually try clothes on because of your weight. I'm tempted to go on and try it and put in a really heavy weight and see if they tell me I'm not allowed cos I'm too fat!!!!
