Hello!
I would like to know if there is a shorter way to say neither too thin nor overweight when describing somebody. Is it correct to say :
Her body complexion is normal?
Thank you

    One expression I have heard other people use is: "height-weight proportional". To me it just sounds clinical.

    Or, you could say, "She is fit", if she is a bit athletic as well.

    Student,


    Two very casual AE phrases:

    1. She's perfectly proportional/proportioned.
    Her body is perfectly proportional/proportioned.

    2. She's just right.
    Her body is just right.

    Since in America it is increasingly "normal" to be overweight, I might say: "She is thin." (But without seeing her, it's hard to know exactly what to recommend. ;) )

    I would be a little worried about using "proportional" in this context without a preposition. However, if it's standard AE, then so be it.
