You are right. I've always wanted to become an entrepreneur. Maybe I can open up a small boutique for women with curves.

If I were my shape, but 5'5, or way thinner and my height, things would certainly be easier.
Wow! I understand what you mean about not being able to find clothes that fit. It really sucks. I hate shopping. I am sure your partner is happy.

No partner anymore. He hated my body type.... he much preferred short (5'5 or below) and really rail thin girls, kind of like short runway models. I was always too 'big' for him.

Thanks

There is a difference between plump and thick and way to many people are confusing the two.

Esther Baxter is thick. Esther Rolle is plump

What I find incredibly amusing is you trying to use semantics to say that women with the B curve can't be called curvy because they, to you, aren't AS curvy. But then use language that proves that, even if they aren't AS curvy, they are still curvy, as they have curves (just not as MANY curves as you want to see). Not curvy means NO curves. Not merely LESS curves, or DIFFERENT curves.

If someone is twice as curvy as someone else, both are curvy, one is simply TWICE as curvy. Semantically, if you run 100 yards and someone else runs 200 yards, you both ran, one simply ran twice as far. Your semantical use of the word "more" or "twice as" is nonsense if you are tying to say twice as much as none, as you see that the math doesn't work. Twice nothing is still nothing.

And of course, the whole S curve vs B curve thing. Both are curves, even using your language. Different KINDS of curves, but both curves.

If you want to clear up the language to gain accuracy, you HAVE to start with your own.

That does not make any sense. He knew you weren't 5'5 when he met you. It is his loss.

Ms. Baxter is definitely curvy. It is nice to see women with some real shape.

LOL at the 2:40 - 2:55 mark of the video. Id be like "do me next, do me, DO ME!!!".
