I have. I've seen pictures of here where I think she looks disgusting.

Real photos, or tabloid covers where they Photoshop a ribcage or cellulite on women and then scream how bony or fat they are?

I don't read tabloids. I've only seen her in television clips and the topic was never her weight.

Cross-front Bra Top Dress - Victoria's Secret

Maxi Tee Dress - Victoria's Secret

Yoga Foldover Legging - Victoria's Secret

There is something really wonky about her back.
Aw, those weren't even that bad, she normally juts her hip way farther out. But I can't fault her for it, she knows that she is known for her WHR so she does everything she can to exaggerate it, even when she's not on the set.

Hmm, I will have to keep my eyes open. The only thing I have noticed about her is that her hands look older. I'm almost 10 years older than she is, and the veins and tendons on my hands are barely visible. That's probably related to weight, though--I haven't been that thin since I was a teenager.

My hands are pretty veiny, and I have never been very thin, so it is possibly just genetics. Some people gain weight, and it shows up in their hands. This isn't the case for me. I am in my early 30s, but my hands have looked pretty similar since my 20s (at least, I didn't really notice it until then). It is almost scary to think what my hands would look like if I got to my "goal" weight.

JLo is curvy, Christina Aguilera (at her heaviest) may even be considered as curvy, but NOT Kirstie Alley or Oprah.

I'm sorry Kate Middleton looks pretty gross these days. She looks too thin. She looked perfect at the beginning of her engagement. But as of late? She looks like she has lost too much weight.

As for what makes a woman curvy--there ARE thin women that are curvy. Curvy women are in all sizes. However I think more people notice the curvy women that have the "flesh" on their bones (Selma Hayek, Beyonce, Kim K, J Lo) moreso than they notice the thin curvy women (VS models). I said this in another thread--sometimes when I see thin women I'm much more likely to notice their "thinness" more than I notice their body shape. Whereas when I see a woman that is a bit on the thicker side, I usually can notice and distinguish the curves a lot better. Why? I'm not sure?

Its hard to tell because some people's definition is curvy is others fat.


Case in point: Mulher Melancia aka Watermelon Woman



Andressa Soares - Mulher Melancia - Eliana - SBT - Rebolando - YouTube




YouTube - Mulher Melancia - Velocidade 6 (HD_16-9).flv - YouTube

Curvy is an body shape, not a size. You can be thin and curvy, and not thin and curvy. It is mostly related to how your weight is distributed (or bone structure, in terms of hip width).

Mulher Melancia is definitely curvy (obvious differentiation between her waist and hips). She happens to have very lucky fat distribution and doesn't store it in her waist. Some people will say she should lose weight, other people would say she is perfect. None of this takes away from the fact she has a near hourglass figure (she looks a little bigger at the bottom to me).
