@aubrav: Agreed! To me, size 14+. Although I don’t say “full figured”, I prefer “plus size”.

I guess it is a matter of opinion, some people feel that the term “full-figured” is better than “plus size”

I always say I have an hour glass figure- just a little too much sand in the glass

Its so interesting to see how different everyones opinion is. I really do think it means something a little bit different to everyone. I am a size 12 and I have always felt full figured.

I’ve wondered about this… So, if someone is under a size 14, let say a size 6, does it mean she’s half-figured? Or incomplete-figured?
I don’t like what it implies!

@egb: Duh! It means you are figured…. then fuller you are, then you hit full figured. I wonder what comes after that though….

I’ve always considered it to be anything that requires a plus size when going clothes shopping.

I agree that 14+ would be considered full figured. And being that I am currently 18/20 I am not one bit offended with that term! Just love being me no matter what the “title”is for my size ๐Ÿ™‚

I hate that it goes by size. I’m 5’11 and I wore a size 13/14 all through high school and college and it was never considered plus size. I read somewhere that they consider anything above a size 12 plus size now. Why can’t it just be a size 12 or a size 18?

Anyway, I am full figurered as definitions go. I’m a 42 DDD and wear a size 16 in pants. I consider myself hourglass and that’s what some boys love. ^_^

I think that if you want to make it about size, that’s fine, but I think that it’s really a self-determination. I’m a size 10-12, but I’d still consider myself full figured becuase of my height. Maybe I’m a “petite full-figured” lol?

I do think I need to lose some weight, but in general, I LIKE my figure a little fuller! I’m a big fan of the lushness that is Christina Hendricks ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m down to a size 12 now (from a 14/16) and found myself getting super annoyed at the manager of the boutique I bought my dress when she referred to a 12 as a “plus size”. I know I have more weight to lose, but is a 12 really “plus”?
