Having curves in all the right places is amazing. But what would be even better is if there were no problems that came with those curves. Be it fitting into a decent pair of clothes or fitting through a narrow passageway, life is not easy for curvy women. Here are ten problems that only curvy women can identify with.

1. Finding the perfect bra is like looking for the Atlantis
Finding the right bra is a tricky game anyway. Add some curves to the mix and it gets almost impossible. You’ll never find a bra that fits from the cup, band, and shoulder perfectly. And if you dreamt of getting a sexy strapless bra, just forget that dream, babe. By some stroke of luck, if you find the right bra, it will probably cost a bomb, so you can’t even hoard them. And if you are lucky enough to find a good fit at a reasonable rate, well, the brand just found a customer for life.
2. Jiggling boobs are a reality
If you thought running only caused pain in the knees and legs, you’ve never run around with heavy boobs. Just like the perfect bra, the perfect sports bra is almost an urban legend. This means that the ladies get no support while running. The jiggle-and-wiggle is a significant part of a curvy girl’s running routine.
3. Pay more for the same dress in a larger size
Life is hardly fair. What’s even more unfair is capitalism. Why else would the same dress your BFF buys in size S be priced higher when you buy it in XXL? It’s almost like curvy women have to pay an additional tax for existing.
4. Online shopping is a hit-and-miss
Finding the right dress size in an online store is like a game of Russian roulette. You might be wearing a size 10 of one brand and a size 18 of another. So, figuring out your size while shopping online is a guessing game. An innocent-looking pair of pants could fit like a glove on the hips and be loose on the waist. The same goes for dresses that could constrict your breathing and be shapeless at the same time. The arms may fit well, but the same dress will make your breasts look plastered, or there might be some flesh jumping out somewhere. It’s easier to figure out the secrets of the Illuminati than it is to find the perfect fit and size while shopping online.
5. Fitting into narrow spaces requires acrobatics
Walking through a narrow space is an adventure sport for a curvy girl. It involves deep breaths, sucking in the stomach, some twists and turns, and finally, a sigh of relief. That is if you make it to the end without getting stuck. And if you are getting up from your seat in the metro or a movie hall, chances are high your bum will get an up-close-and-personal introduction to the person sitting next to you.
6. Pulling up jeans is your cardio
Finding a pair of jeans that fit you perfectly is a dream. And on the off chance that you do find one, trying to wear these jeans is nothing short of a workout. Trying to pull the narrow waist of the jeans up your voluptuous hips is no easy task. Well, at least, you are getting some cardio in by jumping around all over the room.
7. Everybody assumes you love to eat
“Oh, I love a girl who eats” – a staple in the list of highly stupid things men feel are okay to say to curvy girls. Because, according to men, every curvy girl thinks only about food, and eating is her part-time job.
8. There’s no concept of an innocent dress
There’s nothing like an innocent dress, especially if you are well-endowed. Whether it’s the slip dress you saw at the mall or your boyfriend’s shirt, everything turns into a sexy dress once it’s put on a curvy body. Hell, even the drab turtleneck that looks shapeless will turn heads when you wear it. Unless you wear a potato sack that will make you look a few hundred pounds heavier than you are, no garment stays innocent when a curvy body flaunts it.
9. Your size becomes a conversation starter
Being curvy is bad enough, but put on a little fat around the curves and it gets so much worse. Every Tom, Dick and Harry loves to give tips on how to lose the extra flab or what to eat and what not to eat. All of this is under the assumption that you are unhealthy and desperately need help.
10. Cute shorts, where are you?
If you’ve tried a pair of hot pants or some denim cut-offs thinking they are super cute, you know what we’re talking about. Those shorts are going to end up looking like a pair of boyshorts. “Normal-sized” shorts love to pull up on curvy girls. So, the pair of shorts you saw your slender BFF wearing is only gonna look like underwear on you.
