Sal is very average to me. I would call her curvy, but not curvy in the way people are using it nowadays.

Right.  That's what I meant, too.  A lot of people use "curvy" as a PC way of saying "fat."  I don't think that's how Sal meant it, and it's not how I meant it.

I hate "curvy" being used as a synonym for fat, too. A bunch of those bloggers on Curvy Girl Guide need to realize that they're not just curvy. Once you're more than 25 pounds overweight, you may be curvy, but you're also fat.

J. Lo, Beyonce, Niecy Nash, Salma Hayek, Scarlett Johannson, and Christina Hendricks are curvy.

Sal is neither fat, nor particularly curvy. To me, Sal is a classic mesomorph. She has an athlete's build: broad shoulders, muscular legs, not particularly busty or hippy.

Curvy? Pfft. Just one more way in which she's self-deluded.

Count me in as another person who hates how the word curvy is used for women who are clearly more of an "O" shape than an "8" shape. As someone who has a body type similar to Kim Kardashian, I used to describe my body type as curvy but then I realized that curvy means something entirely different nowadays so I stopped calling myself that but I'm not sure what other word to use to describe my body. Oh well. Anyway- Sal is not curvy, in either the traditional meaning or the new meaning. Like the poster above said, she has an athlete's build for sure.

I retract my curvy statement and agree with you slightly. Her shoulders and legs are kinda solid. She does have a waist though. That's what fooled me into believing her. That trickster Sal got me!

Well…if her measurements are 37-32-42, that sounds pretty curvy to me. That's a 10-inch difference between her hips and waist. Obviously she's not curvy in the big sense, but I'd call her curvy in the hourglassy sense.

Those were my bust-hip-waist measurements exactly until about a month ago, though I'm a bit shorter. At least on me, it's not curvy so much as hippy. I think both Sal and I would need more boobage to qualify as properly curvy.

 I have almost the same measurements as her (38 at my bust) and I have a boyish figure. Pictures can be deceiving because I am not curvy at all and it's hard to imagine she's curvy with the same measurements/height (I'm 5'6") as me.

 

Ugh that's some ugly hair!! Has anyone told her that she needs to style her hair like in the picture from Facebook? Please someone tell her!

I feel like that's the worst picture of her hair.  So, so horrible.

That hair still looks awful. It's a slight improvement from the normal mess, but it's not pretty. I'm guessing the stylist did what they could, GIGO.

I completely agree. She really needs to let this "pixie" cut go. Grow it out or go to a place other than Supercuts to get your hair cut.

The true tragedy of this situation is that Sal goes to a fancy, expensive salon to get her hair cut/highlighted!!  It looks WORSE than Great Clips, yet she pays elite salon pricing.
