No way. She looks fit with curves. That is not skinny at all.

Are you a big person by chance? I notice the majority of heavier set people have a way different grading curve of what chubby and average is.

"curvy" imo is a skinny body with some extra around the chest and sometimes hip area...it's a hot look, not a flabby one...

self-proclaimed "curvy" in media is usually what I call chunky/overweight...

As soon as the term "plus size" come in to play we've passed the curvy section and entered the chunky one, just my opinion

You can be "skinny" and curvy and not skinny and curvy. You can also be unskinny and un curvy. It is all about ratios and weight distribution. There are some "plus size" women who are curvy and some that aren't.




I am on my phone, please forgive the typos.

I look at my silhouette and I see curves, but they are lean and modest. I do not have the extreme gynomorphic hip/waist "sucked in" look that evidently is the bees knees to men, what I have is a toned body with little fat, but my fat happens to be where it creates "curvature". My muscle tone helps too. My breasts are proportioned yet small compared to a thick curvy lady like Kim K. I am a proportioned chick that is tall, yet petite. So, I think I am curvy personally...but many men and women who appreciate a more ample form would likely say "Bish please, you're up and down."

Do I really need to waste my time tearing down ridiculous claims? Re various female celebrities. For example, Britney Spears' popularity goes way down when her stomach takes away her curviness, and Mila Kunis is rated much higher by magazines than she is by men and benefits from a personality halo.

For me that has never been a secret.
