@soyjoy222: it depends…it can be euphemism for full figured, but you can be small with a cury body like Kim Kardashian. It depends on the context that is used.

To me, it means anyone with an hourglass or pear shaped figure. I don’t think you need to be plus sized to be considered curvy. I”m a size 2 and I have a major hourglass figure–I would say that I am curvy. With jeans, I tend to think it means that you have either a badonkadonk or are hippier, or both.

I consider myself to be curvy:  5’6″, 38D-33-40 (not sure on hips), size 14/16.  I have boobs and an ass with a very clearly defined waist. I’m an hourglass but I’m proportional with a flat stomach (not thin, obviously, just dont have bumps).  I’m currently 188lbs (but working on it).

I’m sorry that I keep blowing up WB with this picture, but this is me in my dress.

I’d say that ‘curvy’ fit jeans and clothing are meant to accomodate more robust butts and hips.  So many of the cuts are low-waisted and that just doesn’t work for people like me with hips and junk in my trunk.

@soyjoy222:I consider myself curvy with my recent weight gain to a size 8 because I have some hips, a cute butt and DD boobs. Those are curves but not plus size.

I consider myself curvy because I have obvious hip and butt action going on. Basically, with regular pants, anything that fits me in the waist will be too small over the hips and butt, and anything designed for my hips gapes at the waist. Which is why I cried HALLELUJAH!!! when they came out with stretchy jeans.

@soyjoy222: I consider myself curvy although more in a Christina Hendricks mode and Joan (Mad Men) fashion sense. I dress to play up my shape.

That said, I could probably be considered curvy in the more euphemistic sense.

You are not straight up and down “built like a boy” but you have a womanly curvatrues ie: Breasts, defined waist, hips, butt .

Does not necessarily mean “plus size”

@hilsy85:  Ditto.  I think these days ‘curvy’ had been a euphemism for plus sized.  In urban populations it is also referred to as ‘thick’

To me, curvy means you have a good sized butt/hips and/or decent sized boobs, but still have a defined waist.  When you have both the butt/hips and boobs (like me), you definitely have a curvy figure!

To me… curvy means ample backside and/ or hips and perhaps amble bosom as well. A pp stated it very nicely as an hourglass or pear shaped woman.  There are trousers out there that are “slim fit” and they don’t have much room in the thighs, hips or buttox.  IMO, those are the opposite of “curvy fit”.

I think to many people it means “plus sized” but IMO, plus sized and curvy are two totally different things.
