to me it's someone who may be thin or not but has a substantial difference between waist and hipsor boobs and waist. I don't consider all overweight women curvy and I don't get the concept that women who are heavy tend to use this concept. I actually used to call myself curvy only I learned not to because it seems the meaning is hijacked. That it sounds crazy for me to claim the concept anyhow what's your definition?

Yes similar idea to me.

Curvy is a body type, not someone who is simply "fat".

A curvy body may have proportions like 38DD - 28 - 42. That is the ideal measure for me. The low waist to hip ratio.

It isn't though. Technically, everybody has "curves" somewhere on their body. The curvy body type needs to be more specifically defined than this.

Defined WHR. Boobs be damned, they can't make a straight hipped lady curvy.

I disagree on a biological basis. Curves are so touted because they are an exaggeration of femininity which is ultimately a display of fertility. Across the globe, that's what men are really attracted to, the physical signs of reproductive health. While WHR has a direct correlation to fertility, WBR has none. A cup or G cup, doesn't really matter, it's all about the relatively small waist to large hips.

I agree with this one. Curvy to me is all about the waist to hip ratio. You can be top heavy and not curvy at all.

not really if you got no boobs you can't feed your baby. How is that really fertile... Pears and hourglasses always want to tout hips make orbreak you... Butin all basics if you have a baby you can't feed well you aren't very productive...
