Used most commonly in teen magazines as a euphemism for "fat" or "chubby." It works brilliantly as a marketing ploy for these companies, and it keeps from damaging the self-esteem of their overweight American adolescent consumers.
Curvy, in the traditional sense, means having an ample bosom, trim waist, and round butt.
Tyra Banks, Gisele Bundchen, and Scarlett Johansson are truly curvy. They have meat in all the right places!

it used to be used to define an attractive, healthy woman's figure, which was an hourglass shape and good shoulders, now it is used to describe fat women. magazines wrongly use the word 'curvy' to try and make fat gals feel better about not being called fat, but hey, isnt it just as rude to call someone skinny as it is to call someone fat? they want slim girls to say "omigod!" and head for the pies and lard so everyone will look big and that way,they think nobody will be jealous. big women dont see that slagging off slim women wont make themselves any prettier. take a hint
normal healthy size 10 girl walks down street when she is spied by a fat lady. "Maureen! get a load of that size 10 stick insect!" she sniggers. "Yeah im wicked proud of my- *umph* curvy figure! i'll display my luscious curvy muffin tops and heavenly cankles proudly for everyone to see what a 'healthy' figure is!"
a word people sometimes use to describe fat girls,
in turn causing those ones with truly good, curvy figures
to believe they ,too, are fat.
An idiot might say, "Of course, you don't need to diet, 10
tonne Tessy. You be proud of your "curves". It's healthy to be completely obese.Because it means you aren't skinny."
A way a woman should look, similar in curve to a guitar or violin, but not as pronouced.
"She was looking nice to me."
A euphamism for fat. Curvy used to describe women who had large breasts, a small waist, and a big, shapely butt.
Now, the media is pressuring young girls and women to look like Scarlett Johansson or Angelina Jolie. If you have naturally small breasts, don't have a tiny waist, or particularly shapely hips, you're labelled as anorexic or "not a real woman". This same media claims to support "loving yourself", but if "yourself" hasn't got a perfect hourglass figure, then you're done for. Hypocrisy knows no bounds, right?
Let's say a girl, named Eve, was a fairly attractive girl. However, as she grew older, she never developed past an A cup. In other words, she wasn't curvy. According to the celebrity-obsessed freaks out there, she wasn't a real woman, so after years of struggling with her self-esteem, she got breast implants.
Because she wasn't a "real woman" without double d's.
A woman with a shapely figure, generally well-defined waist, and fairly large butt and boobs compared to the rest of her body. Unlike what some people try to say, curvy is not synonymous with fat. A curvy woman has some meat on her bones, but is still physically fit and doesn't have a muffin top spilling out of her pants.
