I call those "apples" as opposed to pears. I agree it's an unattractive shape. Women used to gain weight mainly in their hips and thighs,which was kind of sexy, but seems like it's shifting to the mid-section as it's always been with men. There are plenty of dudes sportin' that look and it's not any better on them.

I have noticed more belly fat among women....like a LOT more. Sometimes it's hard to tell if a woman is expecting or not, because the belly just done laps over those there pants!

if it wiggles and bounces along, it's fat.
if it's hard and pointy, it's a baby.

I cautiously avoid however congratulating anyone for expecting, unless they tell me. I made that mistake with a chubby....dog, but even so, the owner was very upset.

Whatever, I am plump and curvy. Men definitely do not hesitate to stare at my curves.

Depends on if your "curviness" is nice or not nice. Men will stare at both.

Not to be a massive B*T$H, but the poster that said men stare at her curves posted that she wanted to lose 100 lbs.

Not trying to start crap, but I do agree that there is a difference between curvy and bumpy.

My husband says I'm curvy, but I am WAY too critical of myself. I need to lose about 40 lbs...just had a baby, and not liking the belly.

I'm all for women feeling good, and having confidence, but I do think some go way to far with the "I'm a BIG BEAUTIFUL WOMAN!!!" in your face crap...I'm glad you're confident and happy, but please for the love of Pete quit telling us you're big and beautiful!

Just because I am chubby does not mean that I cannot have curves. Most of my weight is in my hip/thigh area. I am also heavy chested. If men like (and I suppose they do if one guy almost trips on the street staring at my boobs) full breasts, shapely hips, thighs, and butt then I have those features. I am more of a "pear" shape, not an "apple" shape. Even if I had lost 100lbs, I would still be a pear shape more than likely.

And it is different for us, especially since larger woman are contantly called ugly and unattractive. I know bigger girls and myself who are very pretty face-wise. Why does being larger automatically make a person ugly? If society wasn't this way no one would be screaming "I am a big beautiful woman",

There are plenty of beautiful, larger women. Beauty certainly is in the eye of the beholder, but "curvy" is now used to describe women so often, that the range of curvy now seems to extend to even obese women.

I suppose it's all relative.
