What is the difference between BBW and Curvy?


Is there a difference between BBW and curvy?

In my humble opinion, yes and NO. Flip-flopping? Maybe so.

I think of BBW as a basic larger woman...perhaps over 5'10" or around a deuce in weight (200 lbs) and proportionately large...or disproportionately large.

I think of curvy more in terms of synonymous with voluptuous...not large, but by no means small, but sexy. Large breasts, likely big butt...beautiful face, nice shoulders, nice arms, maybe smaller waist...I'm getting distracted, sorry.

I don't have anything against either one...not exactly my cup of tea, but sexy is sexy and it sees not a body type. I would go out with a curvy woman who I found extremely sexy in a hot minute.

Maybe you could post your thoughts.

BBW=Queen Latifah, curvy=Salma Hayek.

BBW can be considered curvy but not all curvy women can be considered BBW.

I too wear a size 16 but consider myself curvy and if you can view my profile pics you'll see why. I shop in both regular stores and can barely fit most plus size clothing but some stuff works. I just don't know why they make the shirts so long, I'm only 5'4. According to doctors I need to lose weight and I want to as well but I guess if I said I was BBW I would be afraid of people thinking I was grossly obese which I'm not.

You bring up a great point. Perhaps most woman are not trying to intentionally mis-represent, but afraid that most will think they too are huge.

Well, while I understand what your saying...shouldn't photos solve that mystery???

Just a thought.

Tea sounds so mundane as the beverage of choice on a road packed with curves...LOL I'd be afraid it would splash in your lap!

And I just LOVE Tea!!!

Wish we had a "call me" icon here...
