EaubeauHorn: I think this often comes from teachers either teaching that there should only be a certain amount of lip and reed showing, OR the students using their teacher's embouchure as a model, and recreating the amount of lip seen.

The amount of reed seen on the outside of the mouth plays a big part in this too. People often thought that I had a lot of reed in my mouth, when I didn't, but because of the size of my lips, there was a significant amount of reed covered by my lips than the others in my studios.

From the Geneva Competition pic earlier in the thread, the all have average to thin lips. My pic attached for reference.
