“Curvy” generates controversy as to its meaning, while some say that it is a woman who is not thin but also is not fat and still maintains the existence of the term plus size for women who are overweight, others say that curvy size are the new plus size, because that name was cruel and discriminatory.
The truth of the matter is: Curvy ladies are killing it when it comes to styling. Curvy women wears very fashionable outfits and are making it great time on the catwalk despite the fact that in the old days only thin, tall, skinny women could actually showcase a fashion trend. Things have changed, and changed for the best.

So, the bigger the challenge the more options are available to create, design and conceive a unique fashion style for a woman with broader perspective. Some are incorporating features such as butt lifter to a specific model, others are creating garments like bodysuit which were the object of desire for many women in the past.
