Voluptuous, BBW, full figured, thick, plus size, phat, are several terms society uses to define the body type of a curvy woman. In, previous years, such terms were used to soften the blow, when referring to girl as “overweight”. Today, society has changed the old-school expectations of thin-slim beauty. Due to beautiful women throughout notable industries, remaining confident and gorgeous in their skin, people are starting to notice that the “curvy girl”, is demanding her recognition as, the “It Girl”.

From skin care ads, to music videos, it seems that “thick” is now in! The face of acceptable beauty is quickly transitioning from slim and trim, to big and boss. But society alone can’t take credit for such a drastic perception of what’s now considered sexy. The new epitome of sexy could be blamed on several bold and beautiful women who have branded their images by embracing they’re “curvy girl” physiques.

Get off of the diet rollercoaster! Here’s how.

The late and forever missed, Joanna (Jordan) Borgella, was one of today’s most recognized faces of the curvy girl movement, before recently losing her fight with cancer. The former American Idol contestant, was not only noticed for her soulful voice. But she was also loved for those vivacious bold curves, which she wore very well as a model, singer and later, television personality. After her American Idol exposure, she moved on to become a NuvoTV’s “Curvy Girl”, making the movement official…

In terms of fashion, there is much to be said regarding societies renewed, body expectations. Women can recall a time when any girl over a size ‘12, was forced to resort to Lane Bryant and other “plus size” stores. It was frustrating to rock a unique style or keep up with current fashion trends. Now, it isn’t lame to be seen in plus-size stores, but the selection was limited and typically didn’t fit the diverse styles of many full figured women. The curvy girl movement has inspired top name designers to incorporate size to wrap and hug those curves for those who ladies who want to showoff or dress up, their full-figures.

Obviously, society has done a 180 degree turn in interpreting sexiness and beauty. So much of a turn that the cosmetic surgery industry is as lucrative as ever in comparison to previous years. Our nation is one of the most body image addicted countries on the map. We spend billions a year for surgeons to tuck it in, suck it out, and lift them up. But nowadays we are doing a lot less, nipping and tucking, and great deal of thickening and puffing. There seems to be a craze for round full hips, and a thick lifted ass. Butt augmentations is apparently the thing these days, from female rap artist, to movie screen scarlets, everyone desires those curves which should only come from “yo mama”. But who needs mama’s hand-me-downs, when a Beverly Hillz surgeon can customize it for you? lol. Well, many have handed in mama’s hand-me-downs, in exchange of Dr.’s “hook-it-up”.
