Maybe where you are, but my husband has never asked how much I weigh, the only men that have have been Dr.'s, or my trainer (who promptly pinches me with calipers to check bf%, lol!)

I would say overall white WOMEN are much harder on other women.

It's weird you say 10", cause I have always heard 12"+ (AKA 36-24-36), or 0.7 WHR (waist hip ratio), and that less than 8% have it.

If it's a guy, you call them a dickie-do, cause their tummy sticks out more than their dickie do.

Agreed. And I also think we are harder on ourselves as well.

I started becoming interested in this difference in the past year when I realized that to most people 'curvy' means plump, regardless of body shape.

Though I am quite thin, there's a 12" difference between my waist and hips. Should this not qualify me as 'curvy'? But to most people if you wear a size 2 you must be 'stick thin' (though I hate that description).

It really depends on how you are proportioned. I know a LOT of thin chicks who are "curvy" because they have such flat stomachs, small waists and really curvacious bubbly backsides. Like the Queen of tiny curvy women - Kim Kardashian, she has a world famous backside and small waist. She's definitely curvy.

Ah, well, I don't fit into that category. I am wide of hips and small behind but at 6 ft I guess I'm far more stretched out so a shorter lady with the same measurements would be considered curvy where as I am just plain skinny.

I dont consider her to look "skinny" though.

Her arms and legs dont look skinny to me, like a lot of other TV and Hollywood people's do.

She's just plain "built." IMO

Yes YES! A THOUSAND times YES!!!

Y'all. It's not the number of curves that defines if you are curvy, lumpy, plump, or fat (although a circle or oval is not curvy. Round is not curvy). It's the number of CREASES you have (naked). I know a LOT of women who are medium sized and wear form fitting clothes so going by most of y'all's definitions (waist to hip ratio, hourglass shape, PEAR* shape) you would call them curvy but I KNOW that naked they are as lumpy as my brother in law's mashed potatoes.

*REALLY? Pear shaped is curvy? One curve does not make a person curvy. You at LEAST need two curves to qualify as curvy, with no creases. One curve makes you ROUND! And I would hardly call round attractive. You call a winding road curvy. You don't call a race track curvy.
