Thank you. (Hmmm... I never liked the word fat anyway. Maybe we are becoming like the Eskimos who supposedly have many different words for snow.)

Default What is the difference between thick, plus sized, and full figured?

Fat, Fatter and Fattest.

LOL Well I never. I totally disagree. I guess it's true, there are some men who can't handle a curve.

Depends on the curves. If it's like a twisted roller coaster, NO.

Beyonce' curves, yes!


I don't like heavier women, I like slim women.

I can get behind this. I am 5'10", have wide hips and a big butt, and wear a 38D bra size, and therefore will be "full-figured" at any size, of which I have ranged from 12-22 and back throughout life. My figure is full and curvy at my most slim, and at my most heavy.

Full figured? Either she's not familiar with how the rest of our culture applies that label or she's being really hard on herself. I looked her up on IMDB. She's 5' 7.5" and her measurements are 36-24-36. Those are Playboy model stats. She may not be rail thin, but I would hardly describe her as full-figured.

Simply depends on the person...some frames wear different sizes.

By my weight, according to an old BMI chart, I'm considered "obese"....by my doctor, I just need to shed several pounds. I'm large framed (and not using that as a cover up for "fat", because, yes, I need to lose weight, but I also have a lot of muscle, and a heavy bone structure, on top of being fairly tall).

I dont really like women with a curve as in a single curve like the letter - O or in the shape of the McDonalds Grimace. I like curves (plural) where there is curve of hips, inward curve at waist, you know curves.

A woman in the shape of the McDonalds Grimace is not attractive.

Again:

Thick - Kim Kardashian, Vida Guerra, Beyonce, Serena Williams - (all hot and sexy women physically)

Plus sized - Jennifer Hudson, Janet Reno, Shirley from "Whats Happening", MoNique.

Full Figured - Andre The Giant sized women. The Grimace sized women.
