I personally think someone else (God genetics etc.) determines ones ability to be either skinny or curvey. Skinny the way most people view it is the stick like waif type. Even when I was at my lowest weight of 103 I could not have that figure. My hips don't allow for that. And believe me I was not heavy. Nor was I fit. I will always be curvy because that is the figure I was meant to have. I try not to get to large so it isn't exagerated though. Those who are built to be straight gain weight and it all goes to their bellies. When I gain weight it all goes to my thighs and butt. I gained 20 pounds over the last couple of years and no one noticed but me. (Because I had to buy my pants 2 sizes larger to get over my butt!) I am taking the weight back off but even when I get to my goal I will be curvy.

How stupid. I'm overweight and still have a defined hour glass shape so I'm curvy. Eat it. ^_^

Curvy to me is this ) ( <------big bust, defined waist, big hips. You can have this at 120 pounds and you can have it at 250. It depends on how you are shaped.

This is skinny to me. | | <------No shape. Some people prefer it.


This is overweight and not curvy ( ) <------just bloated and bulging everywhere.

I am generally on the skinny curvy side--prior to gaining 10 pounds--and I am still not overweight but I have thighs and a toosh that won't quit.

My boobs used to be full Cs and then I lost too much weight (eating disorder)...this was at 4'11 and 104 pounds..yes 34C chest...and I had a flat stomach, booty, and boobs. I am less curvy up top but I never called myself an hour glass :)

So I don't agree with the view that..

A skinny girl will never naturally be curvy unless she is overweight, and a curvy girl will never be skinny unless she drops to an unhealthy weight.


you can be both and I have been both...oh and I'll be both again ;)

Thank you. That's exactly my point about skinny people having to be overweight to be curvy. Not so. I am the same with the thighs/butt.

REALLY?! My measurements are 36, 28, 36 ---- perfect hourglass figure which defines curvy?! Am I still losing weight-- of course! but what a close minded and stupid statement to make. Sounds like jealousy........tongue

So is the middle. She has a decent sized rack and a waist that is much narrower than her hips.

Your user name is ineedtobeSKINNY. You are looking for self affirmation. I suggest YOU look for it elsewhere.

This.


I don't agree; however, I do agree that overweight women do use the curvy label quite often (sometimes unjustifiably).


Maybe some women use the term more correctly than others, but most women don't, so now the term curvy is generally known for chubby or overweight. Just my opinion. But I personally hate when I hear overweight women say they would rather stay curvy than be skinny. When the person they are referring to as 'skinny' has curves too, she just doesn't have rolls everywhere, isn't unhealthy, and works out.

The middle is curvy, the last would probably be considered overweight by a BMI chart.

From a male point of view, I definitely prefer curvy, and I don't know many, if any, men that prefer skinny over nice curves. I think Marylin Monroe, dress size 12 to 16 (depending on timeline) had the ultimate body!

She was much smaller than that by today's clothing size standards.
True. Today's 12 to 16 is an 8 to 12 back then. But even an 8 is considered fat now. So Marilyn was not skinny by today's standard. Even if you want to compare clothing size. Marilyn had some dangerous curves.


Ummm, Marilyn was a size 2 by today's clothing standards, folks. Her waist was 21 inches and her hips were 35.

Kind of ironic that she's held up as the icon of large, curvy women when she was curvy because she had an ungodly small waist. Look it up instead of just guessing.


Thank you. Someone show me a damn size 8 with a 21" waist. I'm a 6 and I have a 25" waist. Seriously. Stop dragging my girl Marilyn into the Skinny vs Curvy hot garbage. She was TINY. You can have tatas and still be tiny, folks. News flash.


From what I can tell she wouldn't fit any of today's standard size clothing without serious tailoring. At 35-22-35 she would be between a 4 and a 6, and have to have the clothes tailored by like 5" in the waist.

I love curvy figures, probably because I know I will never be skinny!!
I like coco austin, nikki minaj, kim kardashian, christina hendricks, jessica simpson and kelly brooke, all their figures are great in my opinion and is the types of figures I know I could achieve with hard work smile
and to me all these women look healthy!
i think at the end of the day, once you are healthy, it doesn't matter what body type or shape you are

True! And this doesn't mean that the one on the right isn't perfectly beautiful and sexy...it just means that by modern standards & guidelines she would be at a higher risk of developing certain conditions and diseases.

LOVE YOURSELVES, girls...whatever way you're naturally built is the way you will ALWAYS be built, there is no escaping it.

I'd love to have big boobs and a big bum and a small waist.

But instead I have a small bum, small boobs and a big waist!

What can ya do? laugh

I don't get a choice. I was born curvy. Even in the Army when I was my smallest, I had the curves.
