Such as if a female weighs 120 and is 5'2, but she has a nice sized butt and breasts, and she has muscles, she'd be considered purvy.
Not considered volouptuous because it's still petite, but it's definately being filled out and having a body that's matured over the years.
2. People like Mo'Nique always considers petite women to be be bony, whether they're filled out and purvy or not; maybe because they're under a certain weight!
3. I've known alot of girls that were taller than me, but weighed less than me, maybe because I was built purvy and they were built like poles!
