Are plus-size women, dress sizes 16 thru 20, just as attractive as thin women? Why or why not?


The fashion world is becoming more accepting of women who are plus-sized. How do you view women who are not thin? Do you think curves are in or, not so much? If you are a man, would you date a plus-size woman? (The model below is probably a size 16-18.) If you are a curvy plus-size woman, how do you feel about it?

    Lovely answer, Paula. The pretty girl in the pic is indeed stylish and beautiful. I believe the key is in not hiding under a potato sack, but in wearing clothing that is somewhat fitted,& which screams "more to love!" Oh, Yeah!

    Why indeed? All societies rate women's beauty---whether it offends you or not. No point in pretending otherwise. Many plus-size models are activists against body-shaming, which is a good thing. Furthermore, some men actually prefer plus-size women.

    Bless you for saying so. The good news is, little by little, some change is occurring with regard to perceptions about weight. But it's an uphill battle. The woman in the picture is a beauty. I don't even see her as overweight. To me, she's curvy.

    Absolutely, John. I knew a young woman who was a business professional. She had the best personality! She was not a great beauty & she was a little chubby, but she always attracted handsome boyfriends. Why? They loved her "radiance" & her pos

    Hello Shweta. I think the important thing is to be healthy and to try to be active. That way, a woman can feel good about herself, regardless of carrying a few extra pounds. It's awesome that you "shine as bright as a diamond!"

    Love it. You're obviously a woman who knows how to "rock" her assets. Thank you!

    Right. Also, I do not believe we have to ignore the subject, as if it doesn't matter. It does matter! Too many girls are convinced they're not good enough because of their weight, even though they are healthy. That's where having a discussion helps.

    Jenny....Thank you for reminding us that well known names are actively fighting back against body shaming, AND, that even skinny women have the very same issues. Great observation!

    I don't believe that a small waist-line is needed to look attractive, although some men prefer tiny waists. (Ha! Good luck with that.) However, with good health, the waistline may have a decent ratio, even if the woman is a size 18 or so.

    Linda....I wish more plus-size women would stop hiding their bodies and begin showing them instead. Tasteful fashions for plus size women do exist.

    When worn properly, they look gorgeous and curvy!
