    Just throwing in a clothing suggestion. I just bought a pair of workout leggings at tjmaxx by a brand called Balance Collection. They are gorgeous and comfortable and quite a bit tighter in the waist than in the rest. They even have a seam at the top that grabs the waist at the narrow point.

    maybe "curvy" was just 90s for "thick"

    If I was dating and headed out on a blind date and her friend set me up and described her friend as curvy I would assume she means a bit overweight instead of an hourglass bombshell, not trying to be rude or disrespectful at all, I would take it as a some sort of warning or heads up, as in one of those big boned, or husky, or modern day body proportionate diluted terms that can mean anything to anybody

    I don't know what it means anymore. I've seen obese women call themselves curvy while obese men call themselves "beefy". Thin guys think their fit yet they have a high body fat to muscle ratio. It's just all over the place when what really matters is to be at a healthy body fat percentage.
