Not sure when it started… a little bit after J.Lo’s Selena ass, a little bit before Beyonce’s Hottentot hips. It ran straight through all 15 minutes of the Body named Buffy’s career and has now reached a point of pinnacal hysteria thanks to Nicki Minaj’s booty clap heard around the world. Yes friends, somehow, some way, for some time now, “thick” has become a celebrity in itself.
Lohan-physiques will always rank high on the beauty totem, but ever since hip-hop music videos have awarded Ass with the lifetime achievement award, more than often Thick eclipses Slim’s spotlight. Thickening features have become such a trend for women lately that a celeb can’t claim naturally plump lips and/or derrieres without speculation.
But this is more than just personal hypothesis, a recent national survey confirms that women’s ideal weight sizes have beefed up over the years:
“Compared with 1990, Americans on average are 20 pounds heavier now and even put their “ideal weight” about 10 pounds heavier than before, the Gallup survey of 1,012 adults found. Women reported an average weight of 160 pounds, compared with 142 in 1990, and an ideal weight of 138 pounds, when it used to be 129 pounds.” – NY Post
As a proud owner of a real ass, women embracing their baby fat is supreme coolness to me. However in the same breath/sigh, women injecting their baby fat is nightmare on Elm’s Street. (And BELIEVE me when I say they’re out there, boys beware!) How are you guys feeling about the growing trend of Thickitivity? Has it gotten it out of control or are you simply loving the view?
