I'm about that height and I would say 60 something would be healthy for me. I think my healthy BMI is between 55kg and 72kg or thereabouts which sounds about right.

It depends on your build. I'm 5'3 and look best around 55kg. My bestie is 5'5 and looks best around 52kg because she's just a slighter build and carries her excess weight around her belly (I'm hourglass so I put it on on my hips, and my build is naturally a bit stockier than hers). At our fighting weights each of us is about a size 9. Not that I can be bothered getting to my fighting weight lol.

This was linked on the sleever forum I'm on: http://www.mybodygallery.com/
Can pop in heights and weights or dress sizes and see what women look like at those sizes. Some vary greatly at diff weights.

Im around 5'2 and stuck btwn 58-60kgs. I'd love to be around 55kgs, but I don't think my body agrees. Even though I look OK, I've still got a pot belly and big jiggly thighs.
BMI is confusing and so are sizes. I've just bought xs pants, a size 8 skirt, and today wore size 10 jeans and a size 14 top. I think a healthy weight is probably one that let's you lead the life you want to, ie not too thin that you have no energy to move and not too big that you can't chase the kids around.

I'm 5'8" and sit between 53kg and 55kg. I am a slim build but I'm healthy...and anything over that at my age (nearly 29) would be unhealthy. I'm sure as I age and my metabolism slows down I'll gain some weight but I think anything over 65kg would be unhealthy for me and my build, even when I'm old. I am boney, you can see my whole rib cage, front and back, my hip bones stick out and so do my collar bons but I am a fit and healthy person. This is just my build.
The only problem I have with clothes is that my boobs are never big enough to fill anything out which bugs me because not too many size 6-8 women have big boobs I'm sure. I would like clothes designers to think about this fact when designing clothes.

I'm 170cm and I look and feel my best below 60kg. 4 years now since I felt that good . I know I need to be at least 70kg to feel zero joint pain, but I also have overly loose joints so maybe that's just me.
My physio said you should be at the lowest fat % vs muscle % in order to not do long term joint damage. So you would need a professional to work that out! Not a BMI calculator
