OH boy if that is it, I'm pretty plus. I do have on advantage. I am 5'8" tall. Thank goodness for all those inches. I sit right at 200 pounds so I'm a plus girl.

I currently wear a 12 and am about 5'7" and thought they consider me plus size. Gosh who knows. I don't know about you but I think you should be able to tell a woman from a man, .

Not everyone who wears a single digit size is mannish in figure. I get that you're trying to feel good about yourself but please find another way than by bashing someone else.

Whoaaaaaaaaaa, didn't mean it like that at all and no I was not typing that to make myself feel better. I do not have a problem with the way I look. I think I look great! I guess I was trying to just say, what your saying in reverse to make everyone feel good about how they look. Please do not make me out to be what it seems that you think I am. I am sorry if I offended you, it was not my intent!!! Guess I was saying there is nothing wrong with curves!

Like I said, I do not see anything wrong with the way I look..........

I'm also saying that single digit sizes don't mean a lack of curves. There's nothing wrong with curves. However you can't assume that certain sizes have girly figures and certain don't. It's not what you're saying but how you're saying it. First you implied that smaller sizes have a mannish body, then implied we have no curves. Be proud of how you look, but by saying things like the commoners about curves indirectly bashes everyone not your size.

I'm just saying don't generalize things like curves or lack thereof by pants size. :)

Imagine if someone said "if you're over x size then you're shaped like a potato". You'd know it wasn't true and you certainly wouldn't want to be lumped in a group that way either, right?

^^^ Um, I think I already apologized. Are we kicking the proverbial dead horse now???? Ok then, once again. I am sorry that it came out that way! Trying to make one person feel better obviously made you upset. I AM SORRY!!!!!!!!!!!

BUT, since we are at it, what you said was rude also, insinuating that I needed to make myself feel better by bashing others (when in fact I was not even trying to bash, it was a mistake in choosing what I wanted to say). So your words were chosen no better than mine. Just sayin!

AND to add, I guess you are saying that people that do not have curves are ugly buy saying just cause your single digit pant size and have curves??? See how this can get out of hand???? We need to move on!!!

Nvr2many....I seriously doubt that most of the guys on the forum would find much wrong with the way you look either...LOL
What beach is that? Makes me think of summer and warm...and sunshine and wonderful beach breezes...and warm...but mostly the warm part.

Back to the plus size thing...14 and over is plus? Of course there is a difference between someone 5' and someone else 5'8" both wearing a 14...I don't know.

Here's what bugs me. How do guys get off from being labeled plus? I know there is the photo somewhere here of the really disgusting fat guy on the slightly built grey horse (and it is disgusting. He should be sitting on a John Deere instead of a horse). But what about the guy who puts on a few pounds and still climbs on the same horse and the same heavy tack and goes out riding and spinning? Are their buds all sitting on the fence whispering? Ha! I bet not!

No a size 12 is not plus sized. It depends on your height , bone size. I wear a size 12 when I am at 150 lb . And Age makes a bif difference also.
I dislike the labels, plus size, so what does that mean, that my ass is as big as two peoples therefore the plus ..

That was agate beach here in Oregon last June. And thanks, I think, lol. Hubby likes the way I look. I am with you on warm, warm and more warm! And I agree with the men thing. And what is along that same line the big 250+ men thinking a woman of 200+ is huge and too big to date, um, wth???

Oh God I hope not!! Ha ha ha. I hate the labels too. In older times bigger was better, it meant, wealth and beauty. Just look at the old paintings from way back. Guess times change.
