For a while, curvaceous women have been viewed in Western society as the ideal, particularly with icons like Marilyn Monroe having a bust-waist-hips ratio of 38-23-36 and weighing 117 pounds.

But for some reason, recently, the word "curvy" is just being used by/for any overweight girl as a euphemism for "fat".

So, when guys nowadays say that they like "curvy girls", are they referring to the traditional use of the word, where even a girl weighing less than 100 pounds could have an incredible b-w-h ratio, or are they usually meaning to say "overweight", but in a nice way?
imho, overweight people are usually deluding themselves when they describe themselves as "curvy"; I've rarely seen a curvaceous fat girl.

Also, what's your ideal body type for the opposite sex?

I'm straight, but I do have to admit she is quite droolworthy.

This!

Also, when guys say curvy, it's mostly in the older sense of slim with curves, not the nicer way of describing fat people we have today :P

I'm not really a big fan of Kim Kardashian, to be honest. Jennifer Lopez, however.....

I prefer both the hourglass figure and a woman who is not fat but not skinny. Plus size models generally look great to me.



Whitney Thompson is a perfect example of my ideal, and she is a plus size model. She's 5'10" and a US size 12-14 (so, a UK size 16-18?), which is great - tall and curvacious :drool: .

The first one. Being curvy has nothing to do with being fat.

Noitice so far it is nearly all females that have reply'd saying it is true men like curvy women.

Well, I don't think it is true. Personally I'd prefer a slim/skinny rather than curvy!

I don't know if anyone else has noticed this but the only people that say Men like curvy women.....are women! IT'S TRUE!

J.Lo and Kim Kardashian are both fat. And before anyone says Beyonce, yes, she's fat as well.

Hmm. As a straight girl, I'm probably not qualified to comment... But I've heard that Christina Hendricks is pretty popular. She's definitely curvy.
