I Am Curvy, Not Fat

    I Don't Think This Is The Way It's Supposed To Be.

    I never wanted to have womanly curves.  At 15 they looked weird on me, particularly with the glaring red stretch marks on my hips and sideboob.  Finally my hips stopped growing and the marks have faded to an iridecent white and I leveled off at a 38-26-40, not that...

    Curves Of A Hippo

    My body is a temple.... well my fiance worships it... I just dont. I do call myself curvy because I think I would rather be curvy than any other shape. If you know me from other groups you would know that I am buxomous with what my fiance says are 'child-bearing' hips. Although...

    You're Overweight, Not Curvy

    To me, curvy has more to do with fat placement than with actual fat. You can be thin and curvy, or overweight and curvy -- it's more to do with the hip to waist to chest ratio. I'm the ideal weight for my height, and my body type is hourglass, and I hate it when people who...

    A Curvy Girl's Story

    My name is Jaydee (but friends usually call me Jade or Jay for short). I can be a little goofy and loud sometimes but I also like to just chill out and spend some quiet time at home, reading, watching movies, playing video games (too many video games, probably), cruising the...

    This post is a bit of a vent.

    I am a bit ticked because the whole stupid weight and shape thing is rearing its ugly head and I'm sick of it. Comments along the lines of 'you shouldn't care what anyone thinks' will be automatically deleted, because everyone cares what people think. I care because my...

    I asked my boyfriend

    whether I'm chubby or curvy, knowing he would say both if he wanted to. He's very honest even with things like that. He's chubby and loveable, and my only concern with his chubbiness is his health. If I lose 5 lb people will start calling me skinny again - LOL. And when I...

    Too Fat?

    I am a size twelve and about five-seven, my weight is mostly in muscle so it tends to get read wrong. Does anyone think size twelve is fat?

    Size 12 Isn't Fat! (and Size 14 Isn't Fat Either)

    I weigh 60 kg for 160 cm. I am a curvy UK size 12, with wide hips, a tummy, and 32 E boobs. And I love being curvy, and I wouldn't have it any other way! The only thing I would like is to be a little bit more toned. (The title of my post is taken from two books that actually...

    and stop calling myself fat... I am my hardest critic... I should accept who I am and love myself the same way my darling loves me... for who I am and not for how I look. He always tells me that he loves me just the way that I am... Well if he can love me like that, then I...

    Sticks Or Real Women?

    In a previous time, women with actual bodies were considered beautiful. In other cultures today, they are still considered beautiful. Why do we in America and western countries think we need to be skinny to be beautiful? It's not healthy either. Just because you are thin doesn't...

    Thick Vs Curvy Vs Fat

    What on earth does all that mean?If you look at me, you'd never be able to tell offhand that I see myself as a thick and/or curvy woman. At least when it comes from the hips down. I have wide hips and a big, round butt. My thighs are strong, muscular and thick. I have a thick...

    I Hate The Misuse Of The Word Curvy!

    In magazines, they always make the words "curvy" and "plus-sized" synonymous. Don't get me wrong, plus sized women can be both beautiful and healthy. But didn't it used to be that curvy meant HAVING CURVES? I'm 38-23.5-35 and perfectly healthy (i'm young and short, 5'3"), I...
