Strictly by numbers alone, it would seem to be a 'perfect' weight. But, yeah - without regards to the body mass makeup, hard to say.

I am 5'7''/150/8/F - I used to be anorexic and 120 was a size 0/as thin as i get. 135 was a healthier look for me while still being thin (size 4). Right now I would say I am very fit but not "thin" - lots of mucle and still a little fat I would like to lose.

I think that 5'6" and 130 is attractive on YOU, but 5 pounds too heavy on ME.

Please note that most guys do not want a "thin" girl, but a moderately curvatious, in shape and healthy one.

...not kidding.

There is no set weight that is too thin, just like there is no set at this weight you are too heavy.

In general for 5'6 I would say anything much smaller than 115-120 is way too thin. Not saying everyone at 5'6 will look good at 115 or 120 and not look too thin I just think below that is getting dangerously thin for that height.

this reminds me of the height/weight/size string - it amazing how the same height and weight can still be two different sizes. Sometimes when I am at the gym (the only time I am staring at a large, random, group of people in shorts and ts/tanks for a long time) I am astounded at how different everyone's body is.

to me, thin is skinny, which I don't find attractive, and much too much work for something I don't like.

The only ribs I want to see are on a plate in front of me.

Maybe go by your body fat percentage instead?
I have a friend who was very skinny outwardly but actually overfat in terms of her body fat number because she never worked out or ate particularly well. Turns out her body, although very skinny looking, was fat underneath!
I'd say if you're in the normal range for your height and build and have a lower range of body fat for your gender and age, you should look fantastic!
