I'll preface this by saying that I like BBWs among many other types of girls. I don't dislike skinny girls but I'd have to say that the more somewhat voluptuous are in fact generally my favorite.

The woman from the recently banned Lane Bryant ad was AWESOME.

It may have more to do with who approaches them to begin with. From a sociological standpoint, it's very possible that many white males find multi-racial BBWs attractive, but are less likely to make a serious and assertive approach effort because they feel that their views are outside of the mainstream and they feel beholden to their peers and family members to maintain a certain status quo and continue to validate false assumptions about female body image. Other ethnicities, however, are not bound by the same body image...but may be in some cases on the opposite side of the fence, where they're expected to prefer larger women.

In other words...many white males are afraid (and possibly rightly so) that if they were to actively date a BBW, their friends and family would criticize them as "fat" and would not readily accept them, or would at least insist that they can "do better". They may not be entirely comfortable explaining that they like a little more junk in the trunk, or whatever the case might be.

I thought "petite" meant both shorter height and a slim body? I say that because Nicole Kidman is hardly of shorter height. She's shorter than me, but not really short at all. I'm thin/athletic and, because I'm tall, I don't consider myself petite at all...

I find her beautiful too, anyway (at least I did, pre-botox), although I prefer other actresses such as Natalie Portman or Jennifer Connelly.

I would like one that wore a T-shirt that said "Caution: Extremely top heavy".
