BBW - What does it really mean?


This site has surely become an interesting place for defining certain acronyms. Can someone please define for me what BBW actually is? Does it mean Big, Beautiful Woman? Big Black Woman? And what actually is the size chart? Or perhaps I should phrase it this way, what does "A Little Extra Padding Mean?" "Large" "Ample" I need numbers! We have been taught to look at size based on numbers so does a little extra padding mean size 12, or 14? Does large mean size 16? Is BBW anything over a certain size 18? I need help with this and it seems so do other people. I am a proud size 12, however can't help but wonder if I am a BBW...by some definitions I am. I am just confused at the moment. I am on a quest to find the size or term that means Big Boobs with Big Booty. Ya see why pictures are a must. It certainly cuts down on the confusion when you have a picture to refer to..."Oh I see what THIS PERSON means by BBW.

Agreed! I have "ample" chosen on my profile, yet I get "you don't look ample to me.." Well, I'm no size 6. So...? I hope you get some clear definitions to your questions. I will be tuned in, as well!

BBW usually means Big Beautiful Women and over a size 16 for some and sometimes a 18 for others. I prefer to think a 18 plus. If you go into most clothing stores the plus sizes are 14 and up.

I agree with bbw4u06's comment. I am a 22. So I am a definite BBW..lol. However most of it is up top. But still a BBW none the less.

Well, wouldn't that depend on height? A woman who is 5' tall might be obese at a size 18 (depending on her built) but a woman who is 5'11" might barely be a bbw at the same size.
