Reader poll: Doing research for some different body shapes and sizes... so what is the best way to describe gals in size 12 and up?
I don't know, but I'm excited! I am 5'4 and have hips & boobs-major bummer with some of the fashions out right now.
size 12 and up is a pretty wide range of sizes..I wouldn't lump together. better to take on shapes than sizes, in my book
do they need to be described? what do you call sizes 0-4, and sizes 6-10 (or whatever random size groupings one makes)?
hey Jess, what is the link to the store that makes the braille necklaces that you and the other delightful dozen have?
you can check www.youlookfab.com that blog has a good aproach for body shapes and sizes
i used to say big girl, my niece corrected me, she prefers plus size.
just odered the "breathe" necklace. thanks for the tip!
pleasantly plump! Is that rude? I always enjoyed this term :)
love your blog, but please don't lump size 12 with "plus size" or "full figured" or whatever. 8 -12 are the most common sizes.
I'd like to describe myself as "average"... I have mothering hips, haha. :)
That's exactly what I'm trying NOT to do! I'm looking for a way to describe an all over curvy woman.
My husband and I were discussing this last night and determined it all comes down to curves vs angles... both equally sexy
curvy isn't too bad. I do agree with most girls tho, its hard to be "grouped". maybe shapes are best - hourglass, pear, etc
Hmmm... That's hard! Vuluptious? Marilyn Monroes? Brickhouses? LOL! Guess it depends on how you described the under size 12's...
Gals size 12 and up: Average. Not a fun word but accurate!
I'm a size 8-10 and am 5'9 and I describe myself as "statuesque" kind of like Joan Holloway :)

Personally I'd rather see description of their silhouette: one could be a size 12 hourglass, pear, Doric column...
As a retail manager, I call plus sizes "women's sizes". I'm a 16, however I don't get why people are so touchy about this.
Um, describe them how you'd describe people sz12 & below. Most people fit into basic shapes (hourglass, etc) regardless of sz.

I think you may be safer describing the body type (hourglass, apple, pear) etc. Most would say plus size, but some hate that term
