Assunto:  Slender vs Slim.
 
Mensagem: 

 Generally speaking, there is a word to describe people with little or no fat. This word is

"thin".

 To say that somebody is thin in a positive (even pleasant way) you say that he/she is slim, or less commom slender.

 

 

  From the entry THIN within Longman comtemporary English, with modifications of mine.
