Now That Thick Is In...

So I should be studying for my Chem final tomorrow, but instead I'm over here marveling how crazy it is that in a matter of a few years, being thick has become a compliment vs. being an insulted.

I've always been on the skinny side with this need to gain weight (for myself, cause I think I'm too skinny and because the weight might make me voluptuous) and now I feel the need to gain weight moreso than ever. I feel as if everyone has an ass now and I'm among the few shaking my back to the music and contorting my body in pictures, to have that hourglass figure.
Don't get me wrong, I have my curves, but not curves like I want. I'm not saying I want to be like Buffy the Body, cause that's just to much for someone as small as me...but I would like to whip out an outfit every once in a while and have people say, 'she's got a body on her'.

Now with the rise of video vixens, Nicki Minaj, and those models on pesky party fliers that every party promoter throws your way as he talks you into coming to his event, as if he'll remember you once you get to the door, I feel as if we have become flooded with the images of these gloriously thick women, who aren't afraid to be thick. And there is most definitely nothing wrong with being thick, especially if your naturally thick.

I'm just surprised at the extent of underground modeling, which features thicker females vs. the magazine spreads of couture that feature more slender females. With the exception of the extremely famous thick vixens, such as Beyonce, gracing the cover of Vogue and Cosmo every once in a while, I'm just trying to figure out why thick isn't being pictured as classy.

Why does the thick girl always have to be wearing some sort of revealing clothing or lingerie??? Is it because if you have the curves, you might as well bare it all vs. if you don't you should cover up???

It's just some food for thought, considering being thick is the new movement and the thicker you are the better. And with this increased level of explicit sex songs taking over the airwaves, and don't tell me it's not explicit when just a few years ago everyone was singing about getting the girl to the bedroom, vs. now what he's doing in the bedroom. I'm just saying, it's getting a little harder to play a relatively new slow jam without feeling all hot and bothered. So, I only want to know if as these more thicker models make themselves known, if they'll ever be fully clothed modeling or will they have to remain half-naked???

Regardless of what happens, I'm still gonna try and get thick. I mean, it's only a matter of time before I'm gaining weight in all the right places.
