Like "plus size"
Men seem to be "sturdy".

The label "fat" is no more meaningful than the label "curvy" as BOTH mean different things to different people. What a waste of time arguing back and forth about this question of semantics.

or "stocky". "Portly" is another, slightly outdated one.

Fat in media terms means a body fat % over about 20-25%. KK I've read has an estimated at 18%, Khloes body fat % is higher around 23-26%. As to whether a higher % appeals to ppl is really an individual matter. Since the 90s at least anything over 20% is considered fat because it looks less lean & toned.

When it comes to the media no one cares about who has what percentage of anything. All they care about is who looks beautiful and Kim Kardashian looks friggin' beautiful no matter what her body fat % is. Saw her on Leno the other night and she is looking just as flat out beautiful and sexy as ever. Much better than a lot of those photoshopped pics you find in mags and on the net. She is one super curvy chick that just has a perfect REAL (i.e., NOT surgically enhanced) body.

Khloe complains constantly about being called fat and that is because technically she is.

Sorry to disappoint you but Kim Kardashian has had a lot of plastic surgery on her body, butt, breast, lipo, cheekbones, eyes etc, but I agree though, she's beautiful.

To me, curvy means generous boobs, slim - or at least existing! - waist and then a generous behind. That's while they're called curves, they're supposed to ....curve.

I can't see someone blob shaped as curvy either.

It's all about the slim waist and flat stomach. Doesn't really matter what the rest looks like.
