Fashion Questions About Extra Skinny People

Okay, I know this isn't the common complaint, but I am entirely too skinny. There's nothing I can do about it. I eat more than the average man, I just can't gain any weight. I couldn't even hold onto the weight that I gained during three pregnancies. At about 5'6", I weight 100 pounds. I know that I look almost sickly because of my weight, but I deal with it because I have always been this way. Believe it or not, being too skinny can be just as frustrating when it comes to looking good in your clothes as being overweight. Does anyone else have this problem? If so, what are your fashion problems? I never wear shorts, for example. My legs are just too skinny and it makes me look awkward. I have a question though... Can someone this skinny (with very long skinny legs) get away with wearing skinny jeans with tall boots over the top of them? I love that style and has always wanted to try it, but I picture it not working out for someone shaped like me. Any experience?

Urm..i have the same problem too, too skinny. I also dont know what to do to increase my weight. It's make me sick to think how skinny i am. I have low self esteem because of my body. And to make it worse, i hardly find a boyfriend because here in my country (Malaysia), men not interested into skinny gurl like me. I try to find help on how to dress based on my body type..what should i wear to make me look weightier, more curvy and stuff like that. can anyone out there really help us (extra skinny girls like me)..
