I'm gonna have to re-assemble the axis of evil. Where are Lao and Lucario?

Curvy women do exist in real. But the term's been largely abused and sabotaged by fat women.

So yes, being "slim" or "fit" is a lot healthier then having excessive levels of bodyfat (aka overweight).

As someone who was overweight, nothing disgusts me more than seeing other people who eat gobs of junk food and don't care for their health. Being overweight is not attractive, it's not healthy, it's not natural. In fact, it's just disgusting.

*Over the past year, I've lost almost 60 pounds and am fit/slim and in the greatest shape I've ever been.
Please explain to me how being curvy is has serious health complications? It has to do with bone structure, not fat rolls.

Seriously. I like the curvy and toned look. You know that exists right? I almost didn't until I watched Spanish and Brazilian shows and music videos. I see so many of my friends struggling to be as slender as possible, and I can't help but think they are overdoing it.

Seriously. A size 2 can be curvy if she is petite and small boned. Curvy is often mistaken for a way to describe fat women. It really means hour glass shaped.

I totally agree. Well, I count the pears in the the curvy camp too. One of my friends is a curvy size 0/2. (Just don't tell her that! She is paranoid about her "huge thighs!")

I totally agree. I'd also add that curvy women don't tend to have visceral fat in their mid-section, which has been shown to increase risk for heart disease and diabetes.

I'm not sure how the other poster figures that being curvy is detrimental to one's health

Curvy is a pear or hourglass shape. In other words, it's all about the waist or in other other words, it's all about the silhouette. Boobs can enhance the curvy look but boobs alone aren't enough. Case in point:

Not curvy.

I sure do know it exists, & agree its hourglass or pear ...
I presumed the "standard model look" that info guy was referring to was not the curvy & toned look.

that's funny because in this thread I seen mostly: boney as* women, very overweight women, and women with cartoonish, unrealistic body proportions.

Pretty much... I already listed earlier in the thread what I considered curvy, but I am thinking its subjective. One thing that is true is that curvy is not necessarily related to weight. It's about proportions and body structure. That being said some of the example pics that people claimed were "curvy" didn't look curvy to me(I agree with what you said) but to each their own.
