IS CURVY A SHAPE OR A SIZE?

Posted by Miss Plus Teen on March 8, 2010 at 9:26 AM

The word "curvy", which has historically been used to represent the hourglass figure, is now commonly used to replace the term "plus size".  As flattering as the term is, do you think it adequately represents plus sizes, or does it exclude the majority of the larger population that do not have hourglass figures?

"curvy" is used to represent the hour glass shape, of thinner women these days. the term plus size use to offend me, and i cant be certain why, maybe it was because someone put a label on me, and i was not just plus size, i was smart, and pretty, and good heart-ed, i believe its just the way you look at the word, and if you accept your body type, as being plus size. If some stranger calls you plus sized, or its mentioned to you in a store that doesn't sell your size clothing, i can see how one would take offense to the word. As i have said before, be who you are because your beautiful, not because of what the world says you are.
