Curvy is a word thrown about loosely these days and has become somewhat of a stigma. Being called curvy is either seen as so flattering that women are quick to associate themselves with the term, or so negative that they end up in tears over it.

Curvy these days is either used to describe any woman that doesn't have a runway physique or a plus size lady, regardless of size. However, curvy is simply a woman with a low waist to hip ratio (0.8 the maximum). It basically applies the mathematical definition and in regards to the body this will include shapely thighs and legs, rounded booty and hips with a shapely upper half.

The hourglass is thus the epitome of curvy as it encompasses all the curves a woman can have. Pear shaped women are also a curvy variety, not because of their booties, but because they also have small waists with hips, though they are not as curvy as hourglasses. There are also women that may not fit the strict definitions of these two body shapes but they are combinations that are curvy as well.

It is nice to be curvy and it is nice to not be curvy also. I think it is impotant for women to understand body types and realise that they are all beautiful in their own way.

Here is a list of women that truly fit the curvy bill. As I stated, these women are in no way better than non-curvy women; everyone has different tastes!

What about Betty Brosmer best curves of all celebs

@jbsl

I purposely used examples of more well known/popular culture celebrities as they are the ones the media picks out of to show 'curvy' women and I want to display which ones of them are actually curvy.

Betty Brosmer was on over 300 covers in the late 50's
She sure was famous

Well that's funny NNk because you ARE using the ones they like to pretend are curvy or houglass shaped.

Pears:
Christina Hendricks
Marilyn Monroe
Halle Berry
Scarlett Johansson
Tyra Banks (kinda FAMOUS for being pear...)
Dorothy Dandridge
Kim K.
Megan Good
Melissa Joan Hart

Cones:
Raquel Welsh
Salma Hayek
Julie Newmar

Ruler shapes:
Megan Fox
Tracey Ellis
Mary J. Blige
Stacey Dash

I donno WHAT Serena but that ain't an hourglass! And of course I would have guessed that about Stacey... she was young back then so why wouldn't we exactly? although age has CERTAINLY caught up with her.

Silly boys, pretending you know what women's bodies are like... ;p if WE don't even get it right why would guys?

@Kawaii

Firstly, I'm a woman thank you very much (clearly you didn't recognise the name - that you spelt incorrectly despite having the spelling there - because it is a different language but that is why it is best not to presume). Second of all, the fact that you have listed contradictory body types for the above women does not conclude that you are right and that I am wrong. Christina Hendricks, Julie Newmar, Salma Hayek and Scarlett Johansson in particular are classic hourglasses. I'd be very interested in learning why you believe otherwise. Interesting you say Tyra Banks is famous for being a pear because I tend to hear most people describe her as an apple.

I find it amusing that you question my knowledge about body shapes when to me yours is very far off the mark. Then i'm not claiming to be a specialist but from my research I have gained a pretty good grounding in recognising shapes. Please tell me your own background as I'm assuming the confidence behind your potty mouth is due to some kind of solid expertise?

Btw, there are other lists on here that have also cited these women to be the body shapes that I have (especially the ones I've put as hourglass). Have you been challenging them as well?

most of these women are HORRIBLY overrated and pretty fake (corsets, implants, way too much makeup, etc). I'd take Nina Dobrev's or Candice Swanepoel's hourglass figure over these pears and cones any day TBH =P

@Zillah

Candice Swanepoel is a pear and it's funny because I believe she is one of the most overrated models I've ever seen. She's attractive but I don't get the hype. Cintia Dicker is also a very thin pear and has nice proportions and a more interesting look imho.

None of the above women are cones btw. Nina Dobrev has a nice figure.

Melyssa Ford, Serena Williams and Scarlett Johansson cannot be hourglass because they LACK waist definition:

Big butt and big breats make a curvy profile, but do not make a waist, wide pelvic bones do.

@Betta - Yes I hear this argument often but do not completely agree as I do not think every hourglass has to have the waist dip. If a woman has a full bust and butt with a small mid-section but no curve in the waist then what shape is she?

In any case they all have shapes that creat an hourglass looking silouette.
Posted: 5 years, 1 month ago at Oct 23 20:35
@Nke I guess some of them might look like hourglass, that's true but once clothes come down (without sounding as a pervert) it's not an hourglass what the silouette they create looks like. As I said breasts and butt make a curvy profile, while a curvy front is not possible only with big chest and much less with a big butt, unless when we say "butt" we mean big thigs that nip out noticeably in relation to wour waist, which isn't the case with Scarlett and Serena.

Melyssa on the other hand, has fuller thighs but her chest doesn't look natural.

Anyways, it's possible to have big chest and big thighs with a small stomach without being an hourglass. Although classically, body shapes have been divided in pear, ruler, hourglass and apple, only a small proportion of women are any of those, because most are a mix. I'm a slim woman with waist definition and shoulders as wide as my hips, yet, I've got fuller thighs, small butt and a small chest, so I can't be classified as any of the above, I'm a mix between hourglass, ruler and pear. This can be easily applied for those girls who seem to store fat like an hourglass but have the bone structure of a ruler.

@Betta

I definitely agree that few women fit the classic body types and I have made this point before on this site. Most are a combo and it is likely some of the women on my list are as well. However, I have judged the shapes based on their silouettes and I for waist definition is the main factor of being curvy but it is not the be-and-end of it all. On the one hand people dismiss women like Candice Swanepoel as curvy because she's too thin bu then dismiss women like Serena Williams because her waist isn't defined enough. Both are very limited definitions to me. Serena may lack a dipped waist but she is a curvy lady, maybe not a strict hourglass, but curvy nonetheless. Candice is overhyped imo but she is also clearly curvy.

Kim Kardashian is a pear shape. Her hips are wider than her waist, bust, and shoulders.
