This is true.

You ever see the big fat women with large boobs and butt but NO waist,like its straight up and down?

Whr says it all. If you don't have a small waist and big hips,you aren't curvy.
That's just the way it is.

Btw,curvy doesn't mean hourglass.
Both hourglasses and pears are curvy.
As long as you look curvy from the front,you are curvy.

Beyonce is a pear,and so is Kim K,but I never hear people say they aren't curvy.
Even Marilyn Monroe was sort of pear shaped.

Besides,men don't know the difference anyway. If it looks curvy,it is curvy.

I agree to a certain extent. The waist line is very important. However, you can be curvy from the side if you have a slim back and a bum that protrudes. It is very sexy. Many women get fake boobs to compensate for not having a curvy figure and I do not think it works. However, you can still be hot if you are in shape.

Subjective.
Exactly. Taller chicks present a classical beauty which is different from that of the curvaceous shorter chicks. Check out the models. The good thing is that women do not exist as some kind of monoculture (one single type). Variety is what it's all about and nature loves variety.

It depends upon your definition of a curve. If a curve is a geometric construct in two dimensions, characterized by no two points being collinear, then we all have curves because nobody is THAT dead-straight.

And some of us have more curves than others. My wife is just shy of 400 pounds and as such, she has varying numbers of curves depending upon how she is sitting, standing, or laying.

Oh, and by the way, she has that ideal waist to hip ratio of ~0.7 that everyone talks about. But that didn't save her from all of the "fat" comments in her younger years. So is it really all about waist to hip ratio?

Because it sounds better if they describe themself as curvy as in FAT.

You can be both overweight and curvaceous.

When did "thick" become 250 pounds of ass? Or has it always been that way?

Yep I'm a big gal but other big girls don't have my built. Lol

Shouldn't this be moved to fashion or health?

I am tall AND curvy, as in curves NOT chunk. I am 1/2 Brasilian and I've inherited hips and a bum..I will never be the tall, willowy woman. My hips will never be less than 36", my legs are curvy, and I have far too much ass for a size 6 these days. I wouldn't want it any other way. Women need to love who they are, period.

The women I see described as "thick" generally are heavier/larger but firm and toned, versus jiggly. Along the lines of Serena Wiliams' thighs (not her build overall, though, necessarily). In fact, I've more often heard it being applied to particular body parts than an individual's whole body...and, it seems to be almost exclusively in the African American vernacular.
