Weight gain and loss importance in Lolita?

Before I start this, let me preface by saying that i have no intentions of starting a vicious weight war (which one is better, which one is more healthy, etc.)

Ive noticed, in myself, that even with all these ads, and articles in magazines, and pics on runways where people are incredible thin, it doesnt make me want to be skinnier. Mostly because when i wear lolita, i rather dislike it when i become too skinny, and i think it makes my outfit look less filled out, and less cute, even if the clothes are in my size. So, whenever i work more and dont have time to eat, or whatever it may be, and i notice myself start to loose weight (even if its not through dieting, just through natural ebb and flow) i focus on eating more filling meals. I know keeping a balanced weight is important, but maybe lolita is making people feel like they have to not be as thin? I came across a daily lolita post where the girl said she wore an over dress because she felt a little self conscious of her too-hourglass shape. It must be good that we are worrying about being too thin, and not dieting or doing dangerous things, but is it really? Does lolita affect how you want your weight, or not at all? Again, im just trying to get some insight, and maybe a bit of discussion. Thanks, all :)
