    I like curvy. It kinda irritates me when people only associate curves with breasts. I think of curves AND hips.

    I like something along the lines of Dove’s Real Women campaign, but wouldn’t want to insinuate women without curves aren’t real either so I dunno

    I’m not a plus sized woman so take my comments as you want. I see issues with either option. Women of all sizes are curvy and that’s sort of like when people say things like “finally a real woman” as if skinnier ladies are less womanly. Although I know this is in no way the intention it sets up a comparision or dichotomy that insinuates one is better than the other.

    I hate that I nayed both without giving a suggestion ‘cuz its so not fair.

    Not all plus-sized women are curvy, that’s true. A lot of people do take “plus size” as derogatory, so that might not be a good choice either.

    Perhaps “full-figured” ? Or does that sound too grandma?

    I’m not sure about this one. I don’t think there is anything wrong with the term plus size, and there is always an argument over the term curvy. There are other options, but I’m sure anyone will want to be described as zaftik/zaftig, Rubenesque, ample, bountiful or sonsy (the last of which risks going unnoticed due to lack of use, or being risky for potential usage nitpicking). None of them bother me, but they may bother others. I’m just not sure what to do, but writing this post “Bountiful Brides” has started sounding better…and then worse…

    i like the alliteration bluebutterfly! i can’t decide either….i feel like weddings highlight so many body-related things. but what’s the goal of the board? to provide support and resources for women who wear a size 12+ (which is the technical definition of plus-sized) or is it to be more general for women who don’t always fit the mold, regardless of whatever size they are? i mean there are a whole host of issues around both, so i could go either way. i myself am plus-sized and proud, but i am also quite curvy….
