    I have to say i thought hour glass was literally like an hour glass, though this could be defined as curvy. But then any curvy in the right places is curvy, so ........ man i dont know actualy, but hey, really great question

    I would really like to take back the ‘curvy’ moniker for the hourglass shape. Even now that I still have some inches to lose in the midsection I still consider myself a curvy figure, I think it has more to do with the hip shape when it comes to pants.

    It’s been a nightmare finding jeans to fit in the low and mid rise styles for the last 5-10 years. A curved cut would have a smaller waist in relation to the hips, and would avoid the dreaded gap of doom. We won’t even talk about those of us with a long torso and high natural waist.

    That is so me. These "high waisted" pants still come below my belly button and probably a good inch or two below my waist.

    You must’ve not discovered ‘super high’ high waisted jeans yet?

    Oh I have. That's really what I was referring to above. I have 2 pairs. They both come below my naval.

    Booty, thighs, and breasts. To me, hips have nothing to do with it. One can have wide hips and be otherwise skinny.

    Curvy and hour glass body types are not necessarily the same thing. Curvy is synonymous with curvaceous, rounded, zaftig, shapely, buxom, statuesque, voluptuousw, well-rounded, sonsie, bosomy, etc. Also, measurement proportions can be misleading depending on height.

    To me curvy is someone who has a fairly prominent butt/bust, smaller waist, flat belly. And yes... I do think it has become synonymous with chunky/fat for some.


    While, I dont particularly think that I am 'fat', I also think that I am too chubby to use the term curvy as I envision it. I have a large measurement difference between boobs/waist/hips... but I also have a lower stomach pouch. A high waist means that even though I have a belly, my actual waist isnt that big.

    Curvy has smaller waist and wider hips😊😊😊

    Not all slim are curvy.. Not all fat are curvy 😉

    I like curvy than slim or fat..

    Curvy to me is low waist to hip ratio. Around 0.7 & lower, I’m a 0.61. A person can have a low ratio and be “big” or “small”. When I was 45 pounds heavier my ratio just happened to remain the same, I was considered curvy although some called me overweight/chubby.

    I love this picture, this is how I look trying on "regular" clothes, I'm 5'4 but am smaller on the bottom so I need petites and have to try everything on, buying regular leggings I usually end up with saggy butt syndrome unless I yank them up like this! Petites are always "floods" where they're too short, I hate trying on clothes.

    When I personally think 'curvy', I think classic pin up coke bottle shape.
    36/24/36 😘💕
    But honestly, 'curvy' doesn't necessarily mean concave.... it can mean convex...
    but I personally think 'curvy' has an attractive connotation?
    Not saying fat women can't be beautiful... 😅😂😭
    I'm going to bed.

    Nope. Some skinny women have wide hips but skinny legs and a flat butt. Not the same things.

    That would be me. Small waist, wide hips but toothpick legs and a pancake behind. Wide shoulders but no bust to speak of. I would never fit any clothing labelled "curvy".

    My husband described me as curvy forever. When I weighed 105 lb to now after three kids at 145. I agree that it has a lot to do with the hip-wasit- bust ratio. I think you can weigh outside the normal BMI and still be called curvy if you still have that ratio.
