Spoiled Princess

Hi travelers.

It's with no small amount of sadness that I must announce that IB's, the former main meeting point for us BBWs out there, seems to have (temporarily) closed. This is a hard blow on our community as it is an iconic landmark that has gone down, even though it had gotten less attention as of lately. This obviously means that Gorditas is now the only spot I can consider full out BBW meeting spot, and although it is a lovely place, I shall miss IB's until its return.

I've also lately come to notice that more and more ladies on SL are adopting wider figures, mainly around the hip areas, not as much around the belly or arms, which fat ladies will know, fat accumulate in as well. This poses a question that I would like to raise right now: Are these women "fullfigured"? The simple answer is no. I believe the correct definition however, for these well shaped women, could be "curvy" more than anything, I believe that's what SL is focusing currently, the large chest to butt ratio with little inbetween (which makes sense since most women just follow their dreams of their and males ideal bodytype).
However, for example on flickr, these women now identify themselves as "chubby", "fullfigured", "large" and even "BBW". I want to make quite sure that the definition of BBW is not the same as curvy and this is actually taking away from the feeling the term "BBW" should give.
When I mention BBW I do not think that my conversation-partner should visualize a curvy woman, but yes a true BBW:

1. A leading term used by many as Big Beautiful Woman.
2. An empowering alternative and politically correct description for the plus size woman as opposed to the derogatory term of Fat.
3. A woman who is over the so called weight standards.

 Sorry for the rant :P
