beauty =/= to ideal body type

You can be beautiful without an ideal body, and having an ideal body doesn't make you beautiful.

Again, I'm a Candice fan. I think her breasts are a bit too small in relation to her hips, but a small price to pay for such a killer WHR.

You are a hundred percent right. Sometimes you have to meet somebody to see what else is there.

People have skewed ideas of what size these women are/were....

Marilyn Monroe's weight fluctuated, but for the most part, she was around 5'6 and was be a modern US size 2-6. She looks a size 2-4 in these photos:




Paris is thin, true, but I wouldn't call her bony (he weight has probably fluctuated also, yes as most people will). She is not as curvy as Monroe in her shape, but also appears to have more muscle (a more modern, toned look), and also appears roughly the same size (size 2-4), just taller.

This, again, illustrates to me that "curvy" to people just means big boobs (& sometimes a small waist). You can take two similarly sized women and because one is small busted she is pegged "bony", and because the other is rather busty, she is called "curvy"... yet, the arms, legs & hips are about the same.

With me I know it when I see it, and at a glance. And there must be millions like that.

Curvy = high waist hip ratio or bust to waist ratio.

Someone who is busty, but has has limited waist definition is really just busty. Paris is pretty straight from bust to hips. Marilyn Monroe has a tine waist in comparison to the rest, which is why she is "curvy."
