There has been a lot of talk about what it means to be curvy. Is curvy just a nice way to say someone is fat or out of shape? Do you use the word curvy when someone has a full figure or hourglass shape? What does curvy mean to you? Do you exclude skinny people from being considered curvy?
When I think of curvy, I think of a shapely body, whether a body is a size 2 or 24. A curvy body can be round and soft but it still has some type of structure and definition to it. I like to think of curvy as Voluptious.
Which curvy celebrity above do you identify with?
Are you like Sherri, all top and no bottom?
Are you like Beyonce, shaped like a pear?
Do you have Tyra’s hourglass figure?
Are you like Jennifer and Latifah, full figured?
Are you like Kim, petite and thick in all the right places or like Chandra petite and full figured?
Or are you like the Queen of Comedy Monique?

Clothing maker Jones Apparel Group Inc. said Wednesday second-quarter profit rose 20 percent as the company cut costs and closed stores in a turnaround plan to offset lower revenue.
Second-quarter profit rose 20 percent to $12.6 million, or 15 cents per share, from $10.5 million, or 12 cents per share, last year.
