    and yeah i'm from bishops stortford.
    Me too! :cool:

    I wouldn't get too worked up by the comments on here, its always the same on the fat vs curvy debates. Basically most of the boys think size 12 or above is fat, and most of the girls are aiming to be a size 6. Its quite sad, but I think its an attitude that changes as people get older and become a bit more mature.

    Being curvy's great anyway. I'm 5'8 and a size 12 - I've got big boobs, hips and thighs, and a tiny waist. I'd hate to be a size 6 or 8, I was a size 8 a few years ago and I just looked underweight and lost all my curves.

    Also I think people are ignoring the differences between heights. A size 18 at 5 foot would be very overweight, but at 6 foot its a lot slimmer in comparison.

    i haven't actually mentioned my weight this entire time
    i've talked about my body shape and figure and my bmi but not my weight
    how am i taking the piss?
    you don't know me
    you don't know what i look like
    and clearly someone's really pissed you off today and you've decided to vent somewhere else. all of your posts on tsr are moaning about things.
    read things thoroughly before you attempt to make a judgement on them.
    Well what is your weight then?
    I personally think obesity is not something to be proud of & that people who try to say it's okay are just weak and almost always obese themselves.

    you're a bloke
    why are you on a fashion and beauty forum?
    it's people like you that aren't needed here.
    and what the hell does =/= mean?
    i'm sure you have the physique of a greek god :yep:
    I saw this thread on the home page and it looked interesting.

    Why are you so sexist? Can't blokes look after themselves? No need to be mean

    =/= means not equal, same as !=

    My physique is 'healthy' but I'm in the process of bulking up and then cutting down. Want to look like CK models.

    that's exactly it! i thought because this is a student website that more people might make slightly more educated answers! i've noticed too that the ones throwing the insults have very nice avaters and that, not like they have something to hide though eh?
    whereabouts are you from? it's dead nice here isn't it :thumbsdown:

    to be honest you are not curvy, because size seems big, however if your happy why would you want to change or be unhappy that some clothes dont fit you i think there isnt much of a fashion out there for that size. anyhow i would say maybe diet more lose that hip excercise and then you maybe more happy. i know few of my friends who are that size and to be honest they were tight skinny clothes and it looks horrible i.e. wtf u doing

    You clearly have absolutely no idea about dress sizes. Sure a size 16 would be pretty huge if you were say, 5'3" but she's 6 foot for ***** sake. A size 16 for a girl that is 6ft is not that big. Potentially a little chubby, but not really fat to be honest. Idiot.

    I don't think the insults are at YOU. I think it's just that people are so tired of the word ''curvy'' being used all the time and people have different definitions of the word.

    And it's true most people view size 12+ as ''fat/big'' whatever so if someone uses the wordy ''curvy'' to describe themselves then it's like wtf?

    But seen as you don't consider yourself as fat then what have you got to worry about? You're happy like you said!

    I'm a bloke, and either way I'm not alone in what I'm saying.
    So yeah, weight or not happy with it? Which then just backs my point you aren't happy with being overweight/your size/figure or whatever you want to call it...
    What you aren't saying tells me more about you then what you are saying.

    You can still be chubby and curvy but not fat. I'm someone that personally disagrees with the whole, fat people calling themselves curvy. But dress size is hugely dependent on height and people just classing anyone over a size 10/12 as fat are just stupid. For me personally, even being over a size 8 would not be ideal, but for those that are a lot taller than me, a size 16 is not that bad.

    My mate who is almost 6ft and has a beer belly fits fine into a size 12 (fancy dress).
    Size 16 is big. Don't try to sugar coat it or OP will eat that to.

    Yes I have, and yes, it was a guy in a dress because of the theme for fancy dress. I wasn't there, but that doesn't mean it didn't happen.
    I'm guessing you are being juvenile because this is hitting close to home?
    Either way, size 16 = fat.

    Then you should know that men have different bodies to women, or at least I'm hoping you've managed to gather this.

    And obviously, it's hitting so close to home considering I've never gone over a size 8 in my life :dry:
