So hips are defines if someone is curvy? Or is it an hourglass figure?

You do get there's a difference?

Previous post you mentioned that you had to be a C cup to be considered curvy by your own definition... That was my point that certain factors may not be known.


I actually agree with you though that the waist to hip ratio is what decides who's curvy and who's not....

But anyone with a pear skittle vase hourglass cello or bell type body shape would be considered curvy because of that.

I personally consider myself curvy due to this logic. And quite frankly with a push up bra most girls could feign an hourglass figure of they have a pear shape or any shape with wide hips.

WELL, let me correct it. There is one curve,hanging out between the legs.
I had love handles when I was clinically underweight.

For some odd reason, fat accumulates there no matter what I weight and I've even had personal trainers say the only way I could get rid of it was by liposuction. Thus is life.

I would tear that up.

I didn't know she'd be considered curvy... Her waist is pretty proportional to her hips. I thought curvy would be example 2's waist with example 3's bottom half.
That's more if what I'd identify my own body shape to be like. My bust size though is like example one's maybe a tad bigger. Lol so I'm all three basically.

I used to not have lovehandles in high school. But I balanced out in my late teens.

Choice 3 has a womanly figure. I think she is the most appealing. I cannot tell if she has an hour glass figure.

Then you either didn't eat healthy, have a medical condition or belong to the very few % of people who are just like that. There is always some exceptions.

I thought people like Shakira Alicia Keys Beyonce Jennifer Lopez lady gaga or even Kim Kardashian would be more of an example of what a womanly or curvy figure is. I was always told I had a womanly figure and I'm 116 lbs and 5'0". I sometimes got called chubby because I don't have a body like the above example like I used to in high school. I have lovehandles but my hips are as wide as kim kardashian's (32B-27-39). I don't get is womanly a different term than curvy? Is womanly another way to say chubby? Opinions?
There are no real definitions for those terms. Everyone uses them in their own way and they're kind of useless.

Christina Hendricks definitely looks curvy, shapely and voluptuous to me.
Christina Hendricks does have hips If i recall well. She has a very flat butt though but she's basically a very classically beautiful White woman. European beauty standards never cared for butts very much but they did emphasize breasts and hips and Christina has those in abundance.

woman #3 is sizzling.
woman #2 is far behind woman #3 but she's still good looking.
I might find woman #1 hot is she has a nice personality

For some reason, in places like France and Italy they'd say that woman #3 is obese.
I'm glad my taste is more american.

Not always I think you're thinking about muffin tops.

This women have figures similar to mine. Only my waist is a tad thicker




Not extreme but definitely not a perfect stomach.

This is what a 27" waist looks like.
