I'm 5'7inches, size 8, 50kgs. I'm well proportioned and toned, I have curves in the right places and certainly don't look sick or underweight.
Think it depends alot on your height.

The average female being around 5 ft 7 to 5 ft 8 I would say around 50 - 55 kg. I have always sat around 48 - 52kg and I would say it's definitely a healthy weight that doesn't require you to go out of your way. Of course you would need to factor in whether or not you are heavy boned. I usually wear a size 6 but for some clothes I like a size 8 as it gives that extra bit of room and if I throw it into the dryer I don't have to worry that I won't be able to fit them if they shrink.
In my experience I have never had to work to keep at that weight, I've maintained a healthy diet while also pigging out on junk food on a daily basis. My only exercise being when I walk our dog and getting to and from work. I've still eaten take-away food at least twice a week so it's not like you go without. I'm not thin to a point where you can see ribs, there's still a lot of meat around the ol' bones haha. Sometimes I do a little bit of extra exercise for 2 weeks when my thighs or bum look like they're getting a bit pudgy.
I am now nearly 30 weeks pregnant and weigh 55 - 57kg. Doctor says it's a perfectly healthy weight gain for me and doesn't expect me to put much more on. I'm still fitting into my size 8 clothes although I think that comes down to luck as the baby bump is purely out front and not around my waist.

I'm 169cm, and for me i'm happy when i'm sitting around 60-63kgs. I was 56kgs at one point and I think that was too skinny.

I think it depends on your build. I am 165cm tall and have always been around 50kg... just naturally very petite but I eat heaps, promise!

This thread reminds me of the thread Sassy started a while back "this is what _kg looks like". It was a bit of an eye opener for a lot of people, I think.
Anyway, different people carry muscle and fat differently. It's so much different to simply saying this height and that weight. Some people weigh a lot more than they appear to because the fat is evenly distributed, where some look larger because of uneven fat distribution. (I'm talking people in general here, not hubbers). My neighbor is a big man, but he looks ridiculous because he has small undefined legs, but massive arm and chest muscles.
I can't say what is a healthy weight for a certain height, because it depends on a lot of things. Is their weight made up of fat, or muscle? Do they have a big frame, or small frame? Big boobs, or small? Big bum, or small?
Sorry, I seem to have ranted a bit.

I'm 5'7" and I think I would look awful at less than 60kg lol, my goal weight is 75kg which would be around size 12 for me.

I don't like to put a number on it, because SO much comes into play. I know which weight I look the absolute healthiest at, but that is different for everyone.
I'm 5"7 and weigh 50kg...and currently trying to gain a few (I would kill to look curvy...not gonna happen though!).
Before I had kids I was 60kg which was nice, so I'm aiming to get to 55kg at least, however I don't think I look unhealthy at the moment? My BMI is in the underweight range but there is still some fullness to my face, as far as I know I haven't got the gaunt/sunken look happening. Physically, I'm perfectly healthy, and my GP has confirmed this
I do find it ignorant when others suggest thin people are starving themselves. It really gets my goat, I eat like a trojan!!!

For me, it would be 80kg. My ideal weight for height is between 55-74kg from memory and I would look ridiculous at 55. I have big bones and quite a muscular build.

according to the calculator on the 1 million kilo challenge thingo, my healthy range is anywhere from 57-70kgs.
i have no idea what i would look like at either of those weights. so i guess we shall see when i get to 70 (which is my goal weight)
