A word properly used to describe women with a waist to hip ratio of about 70%. That is to say, their waist should be about 70% as wide as their hips. This word has been misappropriated as a euphemism for fat women. Their fat covers the difference between their waist and their hips so they have a ratio of 100%. Since women generally have wide hips it's the relative narrowness of the waist that produces the appearance of curves. Therefore, fat women are actually less curvy than skinny women.
Alice: "Don't you want a curvy woman?"
Bob: "Actually your prodigious girth renders your curves invisible. I'm into curvy women like Carol"
Alice: "Carol isn't curvy, she's skinny"
Bob: "Alice, you've created a false dichotomy, Carol is curvy AND skinny".

Despite popular belief, curvy does NOT mean fat. Curvy is an hour-glass figure; large breasts, hips, and butt with a comparatively small waist.
Thin women CAN be curvy, and fat women CAN be curveLESS. It is a body SHAPE, not a body SIZE.

A woman that is curvy has an hourglass figure, small waist, shapely booty, and big boobs. She is not fat. Fat/ Overweight women should not use the word "curvy" because they aren't. There is a difference.

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!"

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!

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."
