Curvy Ladies Look Better In Lingerie

Updated on October 16, 2009

Being a lingerie model is hard. Most lingerie models check out of hospital where they are being forcibly drip fed in order to stay alive, traipse down the runway or loll about on set whilst people take pictures of them wearing lingerie and then collapse onto the floor, get swept up and taken back to whence they came.

That's not where the process ends however. You see, even the skinniest fashion model is quite often a little too chunky for the camera. So post production takes the images and air brushes half a dozen ways from Sunday and we look at them and feel fat and ugly. The fashion industry is awesome. Truly awesome.

But you know what makes lingerie look good? Curves. I don't just say this because I happen to have curves myself, though that probably influences the comment somewhat. Full disclosure and what not. I say that because women are supposed to have curves. We are supposed to have a curved bosom, rounded behind, shapely thighs and yes, most women, even models, have a little pooch on their lower belly. Like musculature on a man, these are assets given to us by mother nature which help us to attract mates and bear and rear live young.

Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with a naturally slim woman. But most women run to curves, curves which have fallen out of fashion and worse than that, been demonized by the obesity epidemic. Women are now afraid to actually be curvy, so they often either slave away at the gym trying to rid themselves of the curves that nature gave them, or feel depressed and fat when they look in the mirror and realize that their body is not slim and svelte like an 18 year old's anymore.

The mature female figure can be beautiful too. In fact, for many centuries, the mature female figure was considered the height of beauty. It is only in recent decades that teen body types have become increasingly popular in mainstream culture. And even then, apparently only amongst fashion magazine editors and women themselves. There are a myriad of studies which prove time and time again that men like a woman who is around a size 12, whereas fashion conscious women are constantly striving to be a size 8. It's a cruel joke that the marketing department are playing with the mental and emotional well being of women and girls in the Western World.

So ladies, please, lets embrace our curves. We are meant to have them, they serve a purpose and they are beautiful.

How can you tell if your curves are too bountiful? Like Trinny and Susannah said, the difference between curves and being fat is one thing : a waist. Do you have a waist? Can you run around the block without collapsing and dying? Are you healthy? If you answered yes to these three questions, then you're not fat, you're a woman.

And the brilliant thing about being a woman with curves is the fact that you also look amazing in lingerie. Lingerie is designed to emphasize those curves and to celebrate them. So don't hide away under a shapeless t-shirt at night. Slip into some comfortable lingerie and revel in the beauty of your body.

      Funny you should pick this topic.

      Just today, I ordered a bustier from Hips and Curves and as I was browsing through their website, I noticed how beautiful their models were and how sexy they looked in their lingerie.

      Truly, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
