Big Beautiful Women (BBW) – Are we the norm?

Big Beautiful Women (BBW) are everywhere. We are round, feminine and loving. We are the "plus" size. There are many websites only for "tall" or plus size women. Which stores offer clothes, which ones have plane seat extensions, which airlines have the biggest seats, what about dating sites (there are a lot!).

There are a number of blogs that offer BBW discussions and discussions. I am always amazed at the large number of these sites. If we are supposed to be a minority, why are there so many of us? I suspect that there are more of us than the average size at "plus", but the big advertising agencies, television and movies have brainwashed us all thinking that the thin stick, without curves, is normal. But no! It is not automatically unhealthy to be a plus size woman. Being slim is not inherently healthy. See your doctor and if your blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar are correct, relax. Otherwise and want to lose weight to avoid weight related health problems, eat more vegetables and fruits. Go for a walk. A little exercise can lead to a longer and healthier life.

Tall and beautiful women (and MHM, Big Handsome Men) have special needs when traveling, especially by plane. On most domestic flights, you will need a seat belt extender. Although most airlines offer them, you must request them and not all airlines are sensitive to the needs of larger people. You can also request an empty seat next to you on the plane to get a little extra room. However, these are only available if the flight is not complete.

There are so many options for plus size women that weren't available 10 years ago. I am encouraged that society truly accepts people of all sizes and stops categorizing us.
