The actual definition is “having an amply proportioned or heavy body.” I’m not sure but I think full figured means amply porportioned all over not just in one place so a D cup probably does not qualify. I would think that would just be “big chested” rather than “full figured.” lol.

i consider myself to be full figured, i wear a 36Dirty Delete, and a 12-13 in pants, i have a tiney waist, but usually require larger clothes because my top and bottom are curvalicious!

I think it means if you wear a size 14+

my understanding of full figured is 14+ or plus sized. I like the sound of full figured better than plus sized 🙂

With the definitions provided, it would mean that you’re partially-figured; therefore do not qualify! Tongue out

According to clothing industry standards 12+ is considered plus-sized (full figured). Most plus-sized clothing stores (Lane Bryant, Ashley Stewart, Catherines, Torrid) start at size 12.
