    question about slimness

    Hello all users!

    Yesterday I asked you about how to express the fact that someone may be chubby because the tendency runs in the family.

    What I would like you to help me with now is how to say the same thing about slimness or a slim figure.

    Could I say:

    She gets her slimness / slim figure from her mother's/father's side of the family'?

    What do you think?

    Thank you

    Re: question about slimness

    Yes, I think all the comments about obesity or chubbiness extend to slimness or slenderness as well.
