They do all sorts of stuff with photoshop these days, I bet there's an option to dilate the circumference too
I am amazed at how often women hold up obvious photoshop jobs as standards of beauty.

Left, a "thick" Kim Kardashian unretouched, right after photoshopping:



"Thick" is due to excess body fat as you can see in the photo on the left.

Nope, totally honest here, he was my trainer when I worked out at the gym, and now we are still friends.

I don't think you are either, considering the post you commented on was based on medical fact, not opinion.

My, my. Without know who "she" is, I saw that and well.....I'm not saying what the first thing that popped into my mind was.

The only difference is who is doing the labeling. Designers like using full-figured to describe a woman who has curves (since a lot of them prefer women with no curves) Retailers use plus sized to describe the consumer who don't fit a certain market. Thick is a term used by everyday folk when describing a woman who isn't skinny.

Hell at the end of the day all images would be considered fat to those who think anything with curves! While all images would be considered thick

All the BMI charts say even at 185lbs with not a tsp of fat on him, he's grossly obese. WRONG.

don't get hung up on the weight, it's pretty worthless in the long run anyway. Anyone worth their salt, will tell you not to worry about the pounds, and instead worry about the % and the inches.
I agree. Muscle weighs more and is more compact than fat. So someone who has a lot of muscle will look different than someone who weighs the same but has a high body fat percentage. That's why you often gain weight when you start lifting weights but at the same time your clothes get loose and you feel firmer.

There are so many variables. How you gain weight, muscle tissue, body frame and size. Saying a certain weight amount determines if someone is fat is wrong because visually people can defy what the numbers say.

Thick gals, will turn into plus sized and ff after child bearing. Curvy hips, thick thighs and round azz in high school. Yeah, give her time to have a child.

Most of the time.

Woooooowww. I have a rebuttal for evrything u just said. Im a slim woman and I EAT. Probably more than you.I dont look sick just naturally small. I dont understand where people get the notion that just because a girl is slender she doesnt eat. Sure models have strict diets but for many slim women it is just natural. We cant help that we have a high metabolism.
And who says slim girls dont like it rough? Maybe u were messin with the wrong ones.... we're very flexible
