Top definition
A women who considers herself to be obese in a society that ridicules and demonizes obesity, but is accepting and confident of her size; either because she is proud of her figure or because of naturally confident inclinations. Women confident in their larger body mass reject the societal stereotypes of self loathing due to their size, and often reject the societal pressure to conform and loose weight to fit in.

A new bread of 'fat confident women' actively rebel against pressure to loose weight and are offended by the prejudice, demonization of obesity and discrimination they may receive because of their size. They also do not tolerate 'fatism' and will celebrate their size in a 'thincentric' society, regardless of criticism and prejudice they may receive for doing so. They celebrate their sexuality with those who are attracted to a larger figure and make no apologies for their size.

Other types of confident fat woman may derive their confidence because they enjoy their size, or because they place little importance on their size, or they may have previously lacked confidence because of their size, but have grown to accept themselves the way they are, though they may or may not still have a desire to loose weight.
