First please let me notify you that my intention is not to seek attention. Am I very insecure? Yes definitely, but it's about my perception and my issue is solely based on shape, because regardless of opinion as to whether it's pretty or ugly, it's figure still remains the same. I asked about this in the past but awhile ago I had to abruptly delete my account due to too much stress and lack of time, so in result, the GAG administrators chose MHO for a lot of my questions. I apologize to the GAGers who I didn't get back to and I want to thank and apologize to the few GAGers who tried to help me with this issue too, your answers were very meaningful to me but the reason why I'm asking again is because the problem is now getting worse than ever and my therapy for my disorder isn't helping at all. More and more people are going out of their way without me asking, to tell me that I don't have any curves and I believe them, because in my mind it's reassurance for me that I'm not delusional. I noticed that many men say it especially, so now I get even more weary believing women who say that I am curvy. Is it really true, that men and women have completely different ideas when it comes curves? Would my question regarding my shape be more appropriate to ask in the "How Do I Look?" category instead of this one? Thank you in advance.
Is my body curvy, straight or in between?

Part of the problem here is word usage.
You are curvy (adjective) in the sense that you have an hourglass figure. That is the way some men and all women are thinking of you.
But you are not 'a Curvy' (noun; category label). Men doing image searches on the internet for pictures of women (clothed or naked) fitting into the Curvy body type would expect to find someone weighing 25 lbs to 50 lbs more than you appear to weigh in your picture. They (I) would regard you as not being a Curvy.
It is possible to both be curvy and not be a Curvy as your pictures show.
I hope that helps.2
I changed it to "how do I look", that's indeed where it belongs (when the category was created, guideline for moderators was that questions on looks really belonged there).
I's describe you look as closer to "skinny" than to straight.
Your looks are more than okay though, you could wear about everything and look pretty.1
You are very skinny around your waist. You got a curvy body because most of it is even but suddenly it gets very skinny around the waist.0
It's curvy skinny, if that makes sense.
I can see the curves (hips) but in one of the pics, but in the bottom left pic I can definitely see that you're skinny.
That being said, you're a little too skinny for ME, keyword ME
