It seems there is a bit of a revival to a Marilyn Monroe look among celebrities. Like Christina Aguilera is sporting in her Aint No Other Man video for example. I wonder if this also means a turn back towards more curviness.
In any case, I must say the pale blonde look with bright, red lips has me drooling.

It also does seem that the girdle and other such underwear are coming back as well.

Okay, I'm probably going to get shot down in flames here, but how's this for an illustrated answer.

Evolution.

Which is more desireable? Yes, the Cobra is more powerful than the Ace, but it is also a damned sight better on the eyes. Those thighs... that rear... gorgeous!

Curves. Gimme curves!

Just thought you should have a look at this. A study looking at descriptions of beautiful women in world literature dating back hundreds of years.

I just read in the news that the clothes chain John Lewis will be using size 12 models to show off their new swimwear. They mentioned a woman called Lauren Moller that they will use, I couldn´t find any pictures of her.

Well even if you haven´t watched the tv-series Ugly Betty, you´ve probably heard of it or seen something. So what do you think of America Ferrera, the woman playing Betty? Is she too big or just the right size?

I saw this fascinating article about how in Mauritania they have these fat farms where young girls are sent to literally be fattened up like pigs before the slaughter. It seems to be because being very fat is seen as very sexy there, or at least used to be. I think Mauritania is a popular tourist place, anyone here can verify that obeset women are considered attractive down there?

I've dipped into this thread before but I can't say that I've read every post.

For what it's worth, shape is more important than size. Slim women can be curvey just as larger women can be... uncurvy? smiley - erm

Think I might have posted on this thread before and said almost exactly that. I'll get my coat...

Van smiley - run

I'm a bit of a plumpster (but supercute, even if I say so myself), and get guys from all over the world propositioning me via the magic of the internet- especially Germany. So it's not just Mauritania. But then judging by this thread, just as many guys from the UK like bigger women, only perhaps they aren't as bold about stating it.

Surely "curvy" refers to shape, not size? I would count myself as curvy - 32DD, 25, 35 ish, which means that my waist is small (UK 6-8) but my bust is big compared to my back and my hips are big compared to my waist. I'm also only 5'3'', and what little height I do have is in my legs, so it's all happening in a small space on a small frame, which exaggerates the curves.

I may be slim but I'm not a straight line, and my boyfriend always describes me as curvy.

Yet I have a friend who is tall and a size 14 with really no curves, much more what she calls an "athletic figure" - fairly flat-chested, hips not really much bigger than her waist.

So I really think it's about whether you have some "ins and outs" which classes you as curvy or not.

And as for what guys prefer, well for each guy who fancies me, there is one who fancies my willowy cousin, and another who prefers my plus-size friend... and so it goes on. I think everyone is different, and there is someone for everyone.

smiley - bigeyes Alex! Now THAT description of yourself is perfection if you do not mind me saying so!!

I think Woody Allen must have had you in mind when he said "Her figure described a set of parabolic curves that would cause cardiac arrest in a yak" smiley - drool

Blast from the past indeed - where on earth did you find it?

I'm going to refrain from further comment in this thread, as it got me into too much trouble in the past...
