Curvy doesn’t mean you’re plus size or an inbetweenie!

Why are all people, magazines or TV programs talking about curvy when they are talking about plus size. Let me tell you for once and for all: curvy is a body shape and it’s not the same as plus size or being an inbetweenie. There are a lot of curvy women who have a very small size, like Dita von Teese. The ideal women’s body shape is an hourglass. And being an hourglass means: having curves. It doesn’t matter what size you are: a size 36 or 46 (EU). If you are a 46 hourglass: I will call your shape a beautiful cello.

I want to show you some curvy women: Kim Kardashian, Marilyn Monroe, Beyonce, Christina Hendricks and Dita von Teese. They all have the hourglass shape. And you can see their measurements. This shows not all curvy women are plus size!

The funniest thing is that we should forget the idea that Marilyn Monroe was a size 42-44… please! Her measurements in her time was a size 42. But comparing these sizes in this time: she was a 34-36. And centimeters don’t lie!

  • This photo was to show women to be comfortable and think positive about their body figure. The fact that you made that rude comment about Kim, just shows that your as bad as some of the other people out there with their thinking. Not sticking up for her or anything, but don't trash on her according to her size, but to the stupid choices she makes or the things she says…

  • I agree with that. Curvy is a body shape, not a size. Some words just get new meanings for some reasons, and we just get used to these new meanings.
    I’m a curvy girl but I admit I often use ‘curvy’ meaning anything over EU 42 size. I’m sorry about that, but I guess it’s a matter of keywords/SEO and such, also. I’m pretty comfident people would probably google ‘curvy’ to find me, so I use it.

    🙂 We’ll figure out something else 😉
