It's really about a body fat %. Less than 17% is athletic but can retain curves, 17-21% is ideal & tends to be curvier, over 22-25% is approaching fat.

If the plump woman IS curvy, then she's curvy. And no amount of saying "Please stop calling plump women curvy" is going to change that.

If the plump woman is not curvy, then she's not curvy, and no amount of saying "beauty comes in all sizes" is going to change that.

I USED to be plump, and curvy. Now I'm just plump. My return to plump and curvy is a project currently in progress. I like being plump and curvy. I have been curvy, but not plump. I have been plump, but not curvy. I LIKE being a soft, feminine, luscious combination of both. Just a few months...I should be there by the time I have to put all my winter clothes back on <sigh>

Differences are what makes the world go 'round. Thankfully there are people to love every type of woman... every type of body, and dont give them labels. And thankfully there are men who love what's inside a woman too... even if it takes a while for them to find out what that is!

I just hope all the girls and women dont let the guys bring them down about their bodies - no matter what they look like. Becuz a guy that critisizes your body, doesnt really love you... and when you "fix" what he doesnt like, he'll find something else wrong. Remember this wisdom lol...

Curves come in many different types - those of thin girls, those of muscular girls, and those of meaty/fat girls. Curves are curves! Small or large!

Now - about men... do we call them fat, beefy, chubby, stocky, obese, flabby, droopy, saggy, soft, meaty, curvy (man-boobs!), or just "big?" (this is just meant to prove a point... i love fat guys! and fat is not always an insult)

You do? Wow! I've never heard anyone say that before.

I have a good female friend who loves fat guys. She doesn't really advertise it, but she does. She's trim and very attractive, but her boyfriends are all carrying an extra 30 to 50 lbs.

I'm not fond of big chunky globs of fat on a man, but a man with big bones and "substance" is attractive to me.

Please stop calling plump women curvy. It's an insult to women with hourglass figures.
How about Fluffy then?
