What is your definition of a true “CURVY GIRL?”

A “Curvy Girl” is a women who is comfortable with her curves, living in her skin, and someone who understands that being Curvy will never hold you back from living a life of passion, purpose, and adventure! Curvy Girls are proud of who we are what we look like and don’t care what people say we can’t do. After all there’s a beauty in accomplishing what everyone thinks your not capable of…
