Petite and curvy. A female that has small features, such as being small boned, short, and not weighing that much, but at the same time being filled out in all the right places.
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.
1. Just because Eva Longoria is slender and petite, doesn't mean she's scrawny and looks like a little kid; she's actually purvy!
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!
