depends. you may actually think some girls look fat and other people may just describe them as curvy.
curvy to me is the shape of your body, part natural distribution of fat and part bone structure. a fat person has a natural body shape, even if theyre actually obese. you can be obese and curvy, however many people are just obese. you can't really make that call until they lose weight though and you actually see whether or not they have natural curves or not. I've seen some girls loose a lot of weight and they have no curves at all when they get to healthy weight - or very small curves.
curves means different things to different people. some people I think are curvy, others will see them as fat. fat isn't a legitimate term. everyone has fat on their bodies. fat is just a word that people use when someone is too big for their taste of whatever "normal" or attractive is, and that isn't always necessarily a medical issue. not all people who you think are fat are unhealthy or actually excessively overweight or obese. they usually arent. all the people who are, are obviously "fat."
generally its some degree of lower body curves of the butt and hip-waist ratio. some have smaller limits than others. some people think kim kardashian isn't just curvy but fat, even though she is no where near medically overweight or obese. some people consider very skinny women with narrow shapes to still have curves, while others won't see them as curvy.
its pointless to dwell on this. it is a relatively basic concept - wider hips, rounder butts, bigger boobs - but some people have limits to where they think curvy ends and fat begins. others don't think there is a line, like me - body shape and being obese or overweight are two different things.
who gives a f*** though, in reality? you like what you like and that's the end of it.
When I use the word curvy, I mean a girl who is small up top, with wide hips (a pear shape girl).
However, a lot of girls nowadays are very overweigt (with no shape), but they don't like to call themselves "fat". They use the word curvy in order to make themselves feel good because fat is more of an insult. While curvy means you have a nice shape or a full figure.
I don't think this is the case for everyone as we all have our own idea of skinny and fat. Someone fat to someone might not be fat to another person.
So when someone uses the word "curvy" its not the same for everyone in my opinion. A plus sized woman could call herself curvy while a woman who just has an hourglass shape could call herself curvy too.
No, its a thing fat/bigger girls say like "I'm not fat I'm big boned' but without being real they're fat. But curves are something humans just have, but when a girl is curvy(in a sexy way) it like beyonce, shakira, ect.
This is what my body shape looks like. I don't normally wear skinny jeans, but I wanted to see how they looked. Probs won't be wearing 'em much, haha. Other clothes are much more flattering for my figure, so it's fine.
No, and the same can be said of guys when they say a girl has curves. There is a difference between being thick and fat. Thick girls have almost exaggerated looking assets (breasts, hips, bum, thighs), where girls who are fat tend to be more rounded like an apple instead of an hourglass.
