At first I saw slightly irritated how you called her "curvy" when she is a size 4, but I got over it after reading your comments. I think curvy at the top just seems more fitting.

Well I mean, there are also different ways to describe body shapes. There are girls who are totally straight up and down with boobs. Or there are girls who have more of a curve with boobs. Obviously both are slim. This notion that "curvy" must be associated with a certain size is, to me, slightly ridiculous.

that dress looks fabulous on her! she has a similar body shape to mine, small everywhere except for boobage. My friends always say how lucky i am to have big boobs, but i see it the opposite. clothes always seem to look so much better on them and they don't look like hookers in bandage dresses! but i guess the grass is always greener...

I also think its all about fit.

Oh I would say so. I mean, someone who didn't have boobs wouldn't look nearly as good in this pink dress, personally.

Some one called me "curvy" once and I nearly slapped them. Since then I've gotten over it. Yes, I have hips. No, I don't have boobs. I can own that there are just some things that I can't do (drop waist dresses). Thankfully there are so many beautiful things I can still wear! Cut off short-shorts are still iffy for me. I need a SUPER honest person to tell me if my thighs are acceptable. Lulu?

Le_Trix, its hard to tell because you pose so well that I have no idea what your thighs look like. But according to the size filter you have skinny legs. So I would say yes. But, its always recommended to play around with the length of shorts. We have a lot of different users who wear them. See what looks best on you.

it's true, curvy has somehow become the polite way of saying fat. it's usually used to describe bigger girls who don't necessarily have curves. we must reclaim it's usage.

to be honest i would not call her "curvy", but maybe that's because all the fashion mags/etc i read use "curvy" as a codeword for "fat". :\ that dress looks wonderful on her though!

Curvy is definitely NOT fat. I would say my friend is skinny. Shes just got boobs! Who doesn't love boobs. Haha.

I have a pretty similar body to Hot Boots and I just made a pair of denim cut-offs last night...
EverybodyIsUgly on May 20
Aah, but Hot Boots is particularly sensitive about her legs. I think its hard to tell bc this dress and shoes does a good job in accentuating all the right parts on her.

i've been to this store. i love it. personally i really hate having boobs. i pretty much dress to hide it. and i think i do so pretty well. is that bad???
EverybodyIsUgly on May 20
Not at all! My other friend is a big fan of boob minimizer bras. Haha.
