Curvy women rarely recognized as such

This woman has been described as fat and not as curvy. Although I don´t think she is fat, she was a great choice to illustrate that curvy, once again, is not a size but a proportion. Small cinched waist with wide hips is curvy, no matter if you are 100, 130 or 400 pounds.

Might not be the epitome of curvy, but is far from being as straight up and down as people claim

Her body is rarely the center of attention, and although her waist is not as small, Alexis is on the curvy side

Hardly looks curvy with clothes on but in a bikini you clearly see she's not a ruler
Rate:


Nothing of her body stands out, but her waist is still there and rather on the small side

Skinny she is, but ruler shaped? no way, seems like a stretched hourglass

Kourtney is a smaller version of her beloved sister, and the only thing she must be jealous of is her talent... wait! Kim's got talent??? Nevermind!!!

Some might argue that in this pic Michelle is too skinny, but her pelvic bones sure are pretty wide!!!

She has a small bust... who cares, with a waist like this she shouldn't envy Kate Upton

So JLO is curvy while Demi is only fat? She is not as skinny as Selena Gomez and why she should be? Instead of feeling bad about her shape this girl should be embracing what her mummy gave her

This chick has a lot more definition than many curvy icons, but you rarely see people commenting on her shape

Mini hourglass!!!

Kate is usually used as an example of ruler/boyshaped. Eventhough she's thin, her proportions seem to be those of an hourglass

This girl is my favorite because she's from Eastern Europe too... no wait, it's because she's the best underrated hourglassy lady

Curvy has been used as the synonym of thick exluding from this description several pear and hourglass shaped thin women. In other cases, it seems that sometimes this term has not been convinient to be applied to some curvy women who are not regarded as such. This list is just a brief example of ladies whose small waist is rarely the topic of body shape talks.

love this! Especially that you added Paris and Taylor! I've tried explaining Taylor was curvy/hourglass or at LEAST a pear on her imdb board but her own fans wouldn't admit it. did you get any of the ideas from my own list?

But I dont see all these people calling Demi fat (skinny-fat maybe) or saying she needs to feel bad about her shape... there's nothing to feel and about and obviously she does not because she is obsessed with showing it off.

Hi, I saw your list. I think I even voted for it. It inspired me but the idea came from the fact that many would call a woman curvy only if she was not skinny and had big chest or big butt, a reason why people mistakenly call Serena Williams and hourglass and skinny girls such as Karolina rulers.

My comment about Demi was made because she admitted having an ED and also that she was bullied by some girls for being "fat".

I know you didn't agree with all of my lis choices but I agree with the ethos of this list. Curvy is all about shape and not size. I should have included some extra slim examples as well to illustrate this. I may do other lists on this. I would say Rachel Bilson is an hourglass/pear combo though. Cintia Dicker is another slim curvy example.

@Nke Thanks! I also checked Cintia, I didn't know who she was but I added her and agree with you. She just happens to be very thin with a very "long" body. When I saw her with clothes on I though she was a ruler but in this pic I noticed that she has hips and her breasts aren't small proportionally.

Nina has lovely waist :)

I've got one: http://www.listal.com/viewimage/4842128h REALLY tiny boobs and small all over but she's got a waist.

Thanks! She´s a nice lookng girl, but I´m not sure if I consider her curvy, she doesn´t seem to have muh waist definition, althoug I like her body type.

Paris Hilton is not curvy! She just has some waist definition. She has no "assets"!
Posted: 3 years, 7 months ago at Jan 7 17:21
I nodded in agreement when I read the first one... but gave up when I saw the second, about as curvy as one of those things my ancestors used to write with... I think they called it a pencil.

So pretty much all women are "curvy"? Riiight. The word practically means nothing anymore. Women called curvy now very from obese size to near skeletal, with no clear definition of what it actually means.Ps about half these women should "envy" Kate Upton.
Posted: 3 years, 3 months ago at May 4 21:47
^how about you actually read it? Unlike what people like you are confused about, betta actually knows what curvy means add SHE SAID IT 50 TIMES. Proportionally small waist. Which all these women have, clearly.

PS. jealous of what- her box shape? Lol you might be jealous, but that's doubtful since to seem to feel more threatened by curvaceous women than noncurvy ones like Kate (which is perfectly fine, just don't lie to yourself).
Posted: 3 years, 3 months ago at May 4 21:56
Hip- er, that's precisely what curvy means, waist definition. Lol.

Jack- ancestors used pencils? You must be from the future if they no longer use those. Lol. Or another dimension where pencils are curvy like these shapely women.
Wow, so many people acting hostile and defensive about curvy slim and thick women. I dislike pulling out the j-e-a-l-o-u-s-y card, but you know how fat Westerners get about beautiful women thinner than they are.

^^^^^^^^^This @HipHopHead Some people might say that but waist definition has be SCIENTIFICALLY proved to be more important in sexual attractions than "assets", whatever you mean by that.

@uniruler If you knew what curvy means, you'd also know this http://cdn.rsvlts.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/Kate-Upton-Esquire-Outtake-07.jpeg is NOT curvy. Kate has big breasts and nothing else.

While having a small waist is universally attractive on a female, having wide hips/pelvis or having a too low WHR is not always so (being too curvy can look matronly, pelvises widen naturally after childbirth, so narrower, or 'less wide' hips are actually more youthful and therefore more attractive), just like not all guys are into very large breasts (again, overly large breasts = matronly). But there are more boob-men, butt men and leg-men in the world than there are hip-men, so this is why the beautiful shapely women on your page do not feature as prominently on men mags and swimsuit mags as often as their bustier, narrow-hipped, short-waisted, leggier, apple-shaped counterparts. Also, the ideal WHR according to research is 0.7, not lower, this is the WHR that men find most attractive. You can insist that these women on your page are curvier, perhaps you right, and indeed they have really lovely classical figures! but that does not make them more physically attractive to men, or more feminine looking than the likes of Kate Upton, Monica Bellucci, Scarlett Johansson, etc.

^^^dude. Why are you people not reading the list? What part of "curvy is having a narrow waist" are you having such trouble understanding? Again, Kate is shaped like a box and Scarlett is very wide in the waist if you'd actually look at her beach photos.

ACTUALLY curvy women are ones like Eugenie, Candice, Rosie Huntington Whitely, etc.
