OP - Every where you go there is someone leaner? Everywhere I go there is someone with more curves than me. I'm built like a 2 x 4! The only department in stores that has clothes that actually fit me, is the Boy's department, sizes 14-16. That's Boy's. Lol On the upside jeans are cheaper.

Hangers compliment dresses better than my figure does. Last summer a man walking behind me growled, "Why don't you get a haircut." I knew immediately he thought I was some kid in jeans and a t-shirt. I whipped around and said "Because I'm a grandma and I'll wear my hair however I want!" He about died.

I was at a dance club with friends and the dee jay calls out, "Someone please dance with the girl with the skinny legs." Every one grins at me.

So, yeah, I might be leaner than, oh, 80% of y'all, but it has it's downsides, too! Gotta keep a sense of humor about the variety of ways God made us.

Great thread Sky!

I think it is extremely important to learn to love yourself. If you don't love yourself, dropping or gaining weight isn't going to help you. In my opinion, it's better to learn to like yourself at any size, and then drop or gain weight if you think it will make you healthier and help you feel better!

For the person who wears over-size clothes to hide the stomach roll, I feel your pain! I'm guilty of the same thing, and let me tell you it's annoying. I'm trying to work on getting more clothes that are actually my size and feeling confident in them!

I'm working on getting a healthier life style. I can do things that would've been nearly impossible for me last year! And I'm happy with getting healthy even if I don't lose a bunch of weight.

I'm a TEN. But that's because of my long legs, wide hips, and thunder thighs that I get from riding so much.

Don't worry, you still get ridicule from having a quote-unquote "perfect" body.

I'm 5'6", 100lbs, 32DD, 23" waist, 32" hips. Everyone is as nasty to me for being a great shape as they would if I wasn't. :/

Don't let it bother you! You are you and you are fabulous. Those other people are probably saying stuff cause they wish they were as skinny as lovely as you. Jealousy comes in strange forms.

I'm seriously okay with how I am. I don't want to change a thing (except my hair colour now and then haha!) God made me how I am and that's that!

The most important step is to stop the comparing. Hangars are fake, those plastic models are fake.. you're real.

We're all different :) Be proud!

I think we're all just wonderful! We can always improve our health but we are lovely as is!

This literally made me laugh way too much..My best friend and I always discuss this, she's a curvy girl (I refuse to say big or fat, that is just personal opinion).. Anyway, I am TERRIFIED of being kidnapped, no joke..I had nightmares all the time when I was little and even into my teens, I'm still picked on about it and Katie and I both say that I'll be easier to kidnap because I'm tiny..She'll be the one to get help or beat the attacker up..


Coming from the view point of the tiny, under weight, small wristed person.. Seriously, as much as curvy women envy scrawny women, some of we tiny folk are just as envious as you. I can't gain weight, I'm a hard keeper, even though I eat and eat..I hate it, I then feel guilty because I eat so much around my curvy friends who are trying to diet and stuff..Weird right? AND y'all curvy women have BOOBS! Come on ,who doesn't love those? I'm quite proud of my Cs and I worked hard to grow them my whole life lol.. I didn't even get them until I was 18/19..Then I look at Katie and just sigh..Really? Do you have to look like that and make me look like a 12 year old boy? Lol

Honestly though, pretty isn't scrawy like everyone today thinks it has to be..Healthy is beautiful, not looking like a skeleton..Which I am a little guilty of, BUT it is not by choice..and my butt doesn't fit my body from riding..I have to buy a bigger size bottom in bathsuits because of it.. 5'3" 97lbs isn't all it's cracked up to be..Curvy women have boobs..

LMAO great idea hahaha!

I always feel so out of the loop on those "Securing the girls" or "Sports bras" threads.. I don't have that problem! But I do want a VS spot bra.. hmm... :P

Gotta say VS needs to appeal to the larger boobed women! Hard to find a quality bra in that size I'm sure!

As a lingerie lover, it is a nightmare trying to find any corsets that fit - I'm 34D and size 6 AU so it's either painfully tight across the chest or gaping around my waist. So unattractive! Don't they realise women aren't made in molds? To top it off, I've had so much weight loss over the last year all my clothes look ghastly on me (especially jodhpurs - all saggy and baggy) and I can't afford to buy a new wardrobe. *shakes fist at the malicious weight goddess laughing down at her*
