Interesting viewpoint. The problem with the word Voluptuous though is that it has too many, er, um....broad meanings.

Some lovely models in there and some are simply too zaftig in my opinion as it relates to the word.

Fashion. Black is always in vogue. Anything that is the 'New Black' is the new popular thing.

You've never heard the phrase, "Is ________ the new black?" ]


Anyway, I think we are seeing more of a cultural change to accepting reality for what it is, or at least I think we are heading that way. I think it also has a bit to do with the economy, and things that are going on around the world and nation. People are having to evaluate everything in their lives, and themselves. They are having to step out of the Bentley and buy a Toyota. So I think they are accepting the fact that most of us do not look like the models we see on TV and in magazines, and that people are getting put off by those types of images. I really do hope we are getting more "real."

I hope so. I have never found these size-zero models particularly attractive at all.

Anorexia just ain't my thing, I guess.

This is from the previous time period when voluptuous models were "in." Unfortunately, it did not last and we then got Kate Moss.

I did not like any of the models. They're straight up chubby. You can still have curves without having love handles or flabby arms and a big stomach pouch.

In all seriousness, I'm glad stupidly thin models might be slipping out of fashion, if only for a little while. It's not healthy and it's not attractive - I like something to be inbetween the flesh and skeleton of girls.

I find it's the same with the word curvy as well.

I'm glad that the anorexic look is on its way out. ShyFlyer likes to see a little softness in the women folk.

I hope it is because we have enough anorexia nervosa in the world. Georgio Armani (I believe) was the first designer to ban models with a BMI below 18 from his advertising.

Because you can make anyone look good in black, and it can be sexy, as well as business professional. Not to mention, it's extremely slimming, white obviously being the opposite.

Completely agree, some of those women are borderline obese, except Salma Hayek, she's just got massive tits which make the rest of her appear larger than she really is.

Quoting DesertJets (Reply 7):

It's quite sad when obviously fat people are seen as skinny, it must be something to do with men in the US having to look at massive women all day long, that anyone under 200 pounds is seen as skinny.

There goes Kiwirob again with his unprovoked and baseless attacks against the US.
Time & time again, I have to remind you that your native Australia/New Zealand has the fattest people. Your neighboring South Pacific island nations rank very high as well.
So take you anti-US rants elsewhere.

That would be true if I was interested in Pacific Island and Maori women but the majority are fat and not worth looking at, whereas Americans of all colours are fat. If you removed Maori and Pacific Islanders from the statistics then I would bet the rest of us in NZ are far slimmer than you lot in the US.

Fact is, you have a lot of piglets in your native Australia/New Zealand.

To me it does, I wouldn't consider dating a Maori or Pacific Islander for the very reason that they are either fat now or will be fat when they get older. It's a terrible generalisation but one that isn't too far from the truth.

If you can't get the country right how can you even be sure that your argument is correct.

It's not New Zealands fault that the majority of our native population pig out on KFC, lamb flaps and SPAM and that most of the imports from the Pacific Islands also like being big and chunky. Ethnicity makes a big difference in weight statistics.

Superfly you can't deny that vast numbers of Americans are huge, you do see large people in NZ and Australia, no doubt about it but our fatties are no way near as fat as your fatties. 400, 500, 600, and even 700 pounders can be seen on the streets in the US, I haven't seen anything close to that in NZ.

The only large peoople you see in Norway are usually American tourists.

I think you're taking this a bit too far. I have seen the occasional 400lber, but people of that size and larger are rare, and we are often surprised when we see it, as well.
