Candice Swanpoel is only "curvy" because of the way she arches her back and juts her hip out while wearing a pushup bra. In other words, her curves are not real. Pictures of her not posing show a very straight figure.

I have seen Candace when she is standing straight and her hips are still wide and her waist is tiny. That is the definition of curvy.

Same here. Shape has nothing to do with thin vs. heavier.

Me three - I've always been tall and slender but I have wide hips/small waist. It's hard to find jeans that are long enough but not super tight in the hips/butt area!

True. Just last night I was at the studio watching some couples practice their ballroom dancing. The gal was wearing standard Lululemon tights and a tight top so you can see her actual shape. She was about 5' 5" and maybe (probably less) 115 pounds but a complete and total hourglass. Im talking tiny tiny waist that was probably smaller than 22" and booty/hips and boobs. She looked great. Total 115 pounds of hourglass.

Yup, it's all about proportions.

Doubtful an hourglass can be skinny, at least not without cosmetic procedures. I've never met a skinny (anorexic) woman with ample breasts, small waist, and full hips. Body fat is needed to fill those curves.

I actually have 13% body fat and D cups a skinny girl can have big boobs and proportionally large hips it's easy to do since if the waist is 23" and below all the hips have to be is like 33" full

Yes you definitely can.

That is my shape. At least that is what my measurements imply (34-24-35). I'm 5'7 and I weigh about 115 pounds. To some people having a shape means being thick (large breast, tiny waist, big hips). I have seen a lot of thin people with curvy bodies.
