    Default examples of thick vs fat

    since so many threads seem to be oh im thick maybe i should dance, I just want to put this up as an example of what imo opinion is thick vs fat. Perhaps with actual visual examples some clarity can be had from managements viewpoint.

    These are pulled from two famous women in public eye of which doesnt always transfer to the club mindset

    Now Gia is thick where as Ashley no matter what sports illustrated says is fat. im sure this will bring other opinions, but these two ladies are the easiest ones I found to show the very slim line that exists between these two definitions.

    Ashley Graham looks overweight and unhealthy to me. She's gorgeous, don't get me wrong, but I would consider her fat. The other girl is "thick" and looks to be athletic and in shape, she has curves in all the right places.

    LMAO ya Ashley is so 'fat' that she made it into sports illustrated . Her body type is whats "in" right now, case you haven't noticed. Women are going above & beyond to get all kinds of surgery to have big hips & big asses fyi. You're obviously unrealistic to what fat & thick are.

    Well, I mean, she is fat. There's no denying that. According to Google she's 5'9, 201lbs which puts her at a BMI of 29.7. BMI 25+ is overweight and BMI 30+ is obese. I think she's gorgeous and everyone should be comfortable in their own skin regardless of size, but from a medical standpoint, yes she is fat.

    As for dancing, it really doesn't matter if you're thick or fat. I've seen all body types bank. Some clubs are more accepting than others, but in this industry I wouldn't let weight hold someone back if they want to give dancing a shot. There really is someone for everyone. You can show me any woman and I can show you a man who thinks she's a goddess. If someone is unsure, the best thing to do is audition and see how it goes.

    I would post some pics when I get time but here’s how I see thick vs fat

    Thick = big thighs, wide hips, small stomach, big butt, big perky breasts, muscle tone, hour glass shape

    Fat = obese/overweight but stomach hangs over pants, flat but wide butt, no hips, large saggy breasts, no muscle tone, no shape...

    Omega is right and in industries where physical appearance is highly relevant to the job, there is a fine line. In my opinion, Ashley Graham is on the border but If I had to rate thick vs fat only ...... I say she’s thick

    She has a beautiful face, thick thighs, nice large breasts, but If she tightened her stomach, toned up, she’d definitely be thick.

    She’s naturally beautiful and doesn’t appear to have any plastic surgery and it takes Uber confidence for women especially “plus” size women to pull that off in the fashion industry.

    She has a larger frame than most avg women do. I have a larger frame myself but not as large as hers. I don't see her as medically overweight due to having a larger frame. BMI is hilarious these days. Just bc someone isn't all "toned up" & looks like they aren't society's fit size doesn't equate to obesity. Hell if that's the case then I'm screwed lol coz I weigh the same as her & am as healthy as ever. She actually works out alot fyi

    This is def a troll post btw ~ I think mods might need to consider taking it down bc of how absurd it is, honestly.

    Technically the average size in society for women is size 12 so Ashley Graham is right on target (I assume she’s about a 10/12). I think she looks great and I love her confidence.

    The only thing is in industries where it’s based on looks/physical appearance (modeling, high fashion, anything where your face/body is in front of a camera) the standards are a bit more strict

    BMI is basically to help for those who are /overweight/obese to prevent weight related medical issues such as hypertension, diabetes, etc. It can also be helpful for example in high fashion where models become underweight and risk health consequences that come along

    BMI is a load of crock. It's just weight to height ratio. There are plenty of pics online if women at the same weight liking crazy fit vs. not toned. I actually experienced that recently because I lost a bunch of fat, gained a bunch of muscle and when I finally weighed myself shall I actually weighed more lol.

    Agree, BMI is not an accurate depiction. Body fat percentage however, is much better at assessing overall health. You just need to measure it using the right methods (more measurements the more accurate).

    If you're 6'5 and a professional quarterback, sure lol. But for the average person, BMI is pretty accurate. The woman is overweight. She's not in shape, she's definitely overweight. It is what it is. She's well-proportioned so she looks good but no way is she fit.

    Sorry, BMI is outright absurd in some cases:

    I'm 6'2" for instance - a "healthy" range BMI of 19 would put me at 147 pounds. Have you ever seen a 6'2" man that is 147 pounds? I saw a guy who was 150 and 6'0" he looked like a war prisoner. If I had a friend who was 6'2" and 147 I would seriously intervene today. I have a friend who is a USTA ranked tennis player, 6'2" and 178 and he looks very very skinny and wiry.

    A very fit, handsome 205 is considered "overweight" for 6'2". That is just stupid.

    Is this young man overweight?

    Well he is according to BMI
    Where am I? Back on the road, dammit

    Ashley has a nice shape but she is fat. Nothing wrong with that she still looks good and is beautiful and rich. The main difference is that her waist is not as small. People keep changing the definition of thick to be more inclusive but it’s just become more confusing. Now there’s slim thick, fit thick, sloppy thick and bbl startender thick too it’s not a one size fits all term like it used to be and its always varried culturally.

    A BMI of 19 is pretty much the starting range. It’s 18.5 -25.5 for someone that tall. People carry weight differently and muscle weighs more than fat so a tall muscular person may very well technically be over weight. It’s just a range and flawed. It also doesn’t account for African American women that carry their weight mostly in their lower body.

    What is slim thick? That doesn't make sense.

    Skinny but curvy?


    Gotta be either or, can't be both.

    Yes you can be both curvy is a shape not a size. There are big women who are nowhere near "curvy" and small women who are.

    This is what I consider slim thick

    Slim thick is when you’re generally slim/slender but have an ass and curves in all the right places. But to me, that’s about the same as being thick! When I think of a thick woman I picture someone with a small waist and stomach and bigger hips/ass and thighs. But not flabby or chubby, just toned and muscular. And shapely! Someone who’s fat is just flabby and out of shape. A good example of someone who is fat would be Tess Holliday, that plus sized model. Not knocking her at all, I’m just using her as a reference. A good example of someone who is thick would be Amber Rose or Jennifer Lopez
