The difference is plus sized and full figured sound bad so fat chicks prefer to use thick instead.

A VERY VERY small amount of women are actually thick. Most chicks who say they are 'thick' are just fat. Plus sized means you are fat, just another way too say it. Full figured in actuality means more hourglass but people think it means fat so thats just the way it is now.

The difference is perception.


All are fat IMO........not that being fat is bad but I wish people would call it what it is.

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
I'm also very slender, always have been naturally, and I eat like a lumberjack. Combination of good genes, high metabolism, and the fact that I work out on a regular basis. Tougher than some of my male counterparts, too. It seems now that since being overweight is the accepted norm, if one is slim and in-shape one is accused of as being weak, frail, and having an eating disorder.

I've been all three.

I never used the "thick" description on myself but I think thick=shapely, Marilyn Monroe curves in all the right places. --This is what my hubby would say.

Plus sized and Full figured are the same to me. I am currently in this category but I just call it fat. It is what it is. Just like the big-man = fat.

I know this thread is old but everyone has it wrong. How come its fair to classify someone apple shaped with say,a 36 D as curvy,even if they have no hips and no defined waist,but someone who is a 36C,defined waist,a nd size 16 pants is fat? That sounds just a curvy,albeit a little bottom heavy,which is in these days.
So an apple shaped woman who is 36 D,36 inch waist and size 10 is curvy;meanwhile a 36C,28 inch waist,and size 16 pants size is fat? Please explain

It depends on how you are proportioned some men like meat with their taters, while some men just like a plain ol salad.

First of all, size of pants is irrelevant. Designers are known to fudge a bit on sizes so lets not even bother going there.

Any woman with a 36 inch waist is fat NOT curvy. Doesnt matter what other numbers she has going on or what "shape" she has. 36 inch waist means fat.

Olive1982 said it best a few posts above:

Thick - you need to tone up, lose some weight, borderline getting fat.
Plus sized - fat
Full figured - fat

From what I understand:

Being thick in the middle (the torso) is an "apple" shape.

Being "bottom heavy" means having a "coke bottle" or "pear" shape.

Having a defined waist, as well as being "stacked" both on the top and bottom, is an "hourglass" shape.

Calling someone "fat" or "curvy" just seems like a matter of personal preference to me.
