    Whoa Hold on a second..... I'm a US size 14 and I don't have "rolls of fat" Honest! (My BMI is in the "obese range" and my Dr just tells me that its not an infallible system & trust me, due to my medical history, if it were a problem he'd pull no punches in telling me! ) People here have even seen my (real) photo! I come from a family where my mom has shoulders that would put a russian shotputter to shame! Yeah, I have pudgy bits but not rolls.... However... Beth Ditto is another matter entirely!

    It was depressing cause I always thought she was a bit bigger than me, but there is no way I'd fit into a 26 or 27.
    Don't get depressed! I can sum it up in 2 words... Vanity Sizing! Plus you'll like this bit....

    If she was that confident about her body she wouldn't even feel the need to tell everyone what size she is.
    She's so full of crap.


    Why is she even famous BTW?

    Size 8 - full figured, I think you've got your facts wrong, definitely. Size 8 - UK terms is tiny

    I think that Lola means a US size 8 which is a UK12? or so..... hardly "fuller figured" imo but there you go....
    Hips of 36 inches....

    This is useful.... it has the actual measurements Size

    It's inaccurate to try and define an exact size for curvy. Height and one's body structure play a big role. For example, my 6foot friend is a size 12 (UK) and she's very slender, bordering on skinny-if I were the same size at 5ft 6, I know I'd be slightly chubby (before anyone jumps on me, I mean with my particular shape/how I carry weight).

    Lola - I think that different countries have different standards as to what is/isn't a plus size, etc....
    In central LA / Hollywood/BH its anything over a US6; in Simi its a 12/14 plus..... and that is in the same "city"!

    Plus the sizes have changed over time - I used to be a US8/10 but now I'd be a 6 from the measurements.... and I'm not that old (really!) so it wasn't that long ago!

    No way is Kim a size 12 in pants. With the sizing being what it is now, a size 12 now is like an old 16- just as a size 10 from 15 years ago is a size 6 now (I have old size 10 pants and now I wear 6 and I weigh the same as I did 15 years ago).

    So I can believe Kim is a size 2. Not that size means anything with vanity sizing. I've tried on clothing in high end stores and I have been able to fit in a size 2 dress because the size 4-6 were cut so huge. Some boutiques only carry clothes sized 0-4 (w 4 being a huge size) so its clients can be flattered when they buy a smaller size. In fact, there was a study done that showed women were more likely to purchase an item if it was in a smaller size.

    So yes, I believe Kim is a size 2. As for her "real" size- maybe a true 6- but Kim may be a lot smaller in person.

    No way. Kourtney Kardashian is probably a size 2. Kim is NOT. not her top half and not her bottom half. she just is NOT. I will never believe it. she's crazy. she's got a nice body, she needs to just own it already!

    If she didn't have those huge boobs, her top might be.... but the cup size screws up your clothing size everytime!

    absolutely. Most of my life, my boobage was like a size 12 and my waist was around a 5 and hips were round as well. it's hard to shop. you wind up with clothes (especially dresses) that are just ill fitting in the waist or busting out up top. it's a pain in the ass, I tell ya!

    No way,sorry.She can buy a size 2 if she wants,but it's not fitting her.Kourtney is way smaller than her,so would that make Kourtney a negative 0? Kourtney would be a 2/4.

    I think obesity is like pornography in that you know it when you see it.

    I know several people who are technically "obese" using their Body Mass Index, but to look at them, they are far from what I'd think of as obese at all. The BMI is a decent indicator, but not infalliable by any means. If you have a tendency to be muscular or have larger bones combined with a little more weight, you'll be classified as obese.

    Truly obese to me is when you really can't make out the lines of someone's body beyond the rolls. That's not curvy to me, it's just fat.
