Skinny Girls Aren't Curvy: A Fallacy

Not the best to show curves but you can still tell in here. I need a bra and underwear pic to show off my curves, but it won't go online so you'll just have to read my article.

I am skinny and I have curves

I am tired of hearing phrases like "Skinny girls aren't curvy" and "Skinny are ugly because they don't have any curves", they are untrue and are fallacies. I am sick of being put down because our society has grown to have more overweight women in recent years.

Skinny can be beautiful, and skinny girls can have curves. Actually I think it would be more favorable to be a skinny girl that has curves, because skinny girls with curves have a bone structure to support them, giving them their hourglass shape naturally and healthily.The reason why I comment on the bone structure is that studies have proven that men desire women who have hips and a curvy structure because subconsciously they see them as "child bearing" traits. Moving on with this fact, I'd like to point out that a lot of chunky girls that have curves, have them because they need to lose weight in those areas and not because of their bone structure. However, I find chunky girls who have an hourglass bone structure still desirable and beautiful, I am just stating it's the bone structure that is desirable not the illusion of it.

My problem lies within the people who put down skinny girls to make them feel better about their added weight. Bigger women may have more defined curves, but it still doesn't mean I don't have them. My bone structure naturally gives me the hourglass shape and my metabolism won't allow me to gain much weight either. I am 108 lbs, 5'2 with C breasts, a small waist, hips, and an ass to die for. I am almost positive any guy would qualify that as curvy. I know I seem less curvy when dressed than bigger girls, however this is because they don't make curvy clothing for skinny girls. I mean I'd like to see a bigger curvy girl get undressed next to me as a curvy skinny girl and still say they have the more attractive curves. I'd like to point out that size 1-5 jeans and shorts have no ass room in them. When I buy pants that fit they fit my waist but squeeze my ass in so it makes it smaller or I will but pants to fit my hips but then the waist will look bigger because it will be baggy at my waist. As a result, bigger women should probably also stop complaining that they can't find pants that fit. Skinny girls have the same problem, it's the average girls who have it easy. So I think we need to put these fallacies to rest.

i agree - too often slender women get put down by other women who are not so thin because i guess they think 'oh she can take it, she's thin and beautiful', which is ridiculous. everyone has feelings and everyone should be respected. yes, there are extremes (anorexia and obese), which don't look good but skinny women do have curves. good hub - rating UP.

Well said. A healthy weight is a healthy weight, no matter the bone size, or bone structure. A woman who takes care of herself and carries herself well will be attractive.

Plus, there are different types of curves and different men are attracted to different things.

I think skinny can be beautiful, curves or not. Each woman is beautiful in her own way--it's ultimately the personality that shines through. Thanks for sharing.

You may be confusing healthy skinny with anorexic skinny. I prefer skinny healthy girls, and have no real problems with the kind of girl that's comfortable with her own body.

Jealousy is a B!#ch, and seems to effect us all.

You are naturally attractive, so you're going to be slammed by those who aren't (see comment above).

People with money are going to be villainized by those without (see our current political climate).

Those who lack talent unfairly criticize those who possess it (see every movie review Roger Ebert's ever done).

We're all jealous of someone or something, at some point. Which is fine, it's a natural healthy human reaction.

The problem is people get so caught up in their jealousy that instead of using it to fuel their own desire to work for what they want... hit the gym, or maybe the books; get a better education/job, etc.; they would rather waste their time rediculing, insulting, and attacking those that have what they themselves want.

But also try to remember, there's a flipside to the coin, those that have, and willfully flaunt it at those who don't, are just as wrong.

Overall, it's just another symptom of the "human condition". Don't let it get to you, if I was single and ten years younger... hehe ;)

Good hub, keep it up.

Slim girls have long curves, but they still have curves.

I get the Vixen, but what about the Thunder?

You are mostly right but like most people confuse big boobs/butt with curves. I mean they are but 1) every mammal has curves (definition: the parts that go in and out) and 2) they don't make you CURVY (def: having a defined waist... which CAN be on a pear shaped or cone shaped woman, not only hourglass, which btw is an incredibly rare shape so you as well as many actually pear, cone or even ruler shaped stars may not have that but maybe you do. Candice Swanepoel is curvier than 95% of women so called curvy but she has small boobs, small hips, a cute small booty. Marilyn might be (an overused) curvy pear shape but did you know that her proportions are the same as Audrey Hepburn's? so really skiiny girls are actually FAR more likely to be curvy than fatter (Candice, Audrey, Grace Kelly, Tippi Hedren, Nina Dobrev, Miranda Kerr, etc).

also, I get your point but you really do not need to brag about your supposed physical assests just to make said point, because it is just that: bragging. so overall the article half charmed me,, half had me at "uhh..." because of a few misconceptions but I was glad to read someone sayingthe basic truth (ie skinny and curvy are apples and oranges, are NOT the opposite of each other).


Girl with the skinny girl curse 4 years ago

Hi im 95 pounds, 5'2".

How did you get to 108 pounds? I am 14 years old. Did you fill out when you were older?

I am underweight and I want to be at least 105 pounds. I don't know how to gain weight because its impossible. My mom says she stayed 95 pounds her whole life until she got pregant. Help!! I don't want that to happen to me :'(

I don't skinny is an attractive body type-slender yes but skinny suggests a lacking. I agree that bigger doesn't mean curvy as well.

...Im sick and tired of fat big girls and skinny girls calling themselves curvy! YOU ARE NOT CURVY! CURVY IS SPECIFIC! Small waist,big butt,wide hips,thighs,breasts is curvy!

stop trying to redefine the term to include yourself!

thi is is curvy

...Im sick and tired of fat big girls and skinny girls calling themselves curvy! YOU ARE NOT CURVY! CURVY IS SPECIFIC! Small waist,big butt,wide hips,thighs,breasts is curvy! not a? crackhead model or a skinny female flatter than a surfboard or a round ball with no waist! stop calling yourself curvy when ur body is nowhere near curvy ur no marilyn monroe,monica santhiago,coco austin,vida guerra,renatta frisson,andressa soares,mayra veronica,Rosee Divine,Sophie Dee! STOP IT

the reason that plus size patterns are not curvy is because as a body gains weight, the small depressions of the body fill in and commensurate padding isn’t added to the high points. A useful analogy is illustrated by observing your driveway after a rain. There are little puddles in the low points although the entire surface is wet. As more rain falls, larger sloping depressions fill in further. It isn’t until it floods (morbid obesity) that any low points are completely smoothed over.

Another reason plus size patterns are flatter as opposed to curvier is due to styling. In larger sizes, people’s bodies form rolls of flesh. So while it is possible to draft to emphasize the size and location of rolls, I don’t know anyone who would consider that a feature worth paying for. people don’t want that emphasized.
