I feel that this clipping from Us Magazine is a bit misleading, so I wanted to comment on it.

I am a huge fan of Forever 21 and I’m very happy they have expanded their line to include a plus-size range, but I
am not in that size category and this article makes it sound like I am! I am a curvy girl and I love my curves, but curvy and plus-sized are two very different things. I work really hard to maintain my curves while staying slim and healthy, so to be classed as a “fuller-figured woman” of extra large proportions is a little offensive.

For the record, I am a size 2, not 2XL.

    We all know how hard you work to look hot. Curves are beautiful and you are blessed with a killer body! I think US was just trying to put a celebrity up to make plus sized women feel better but they could have found someone who’s actually plus size!

    Kim don’t let this get you down. Your body is AMAZING!!! And we all can definitely tell you’re not plus-size. Your waist is so tiny! Your arms and legs are toned, and your stomach is so flat! You have the body most girls would die for! Keep your head up =)

    I agree Kim. You are def not plus size and your working out shows, you have a great body. I personally dont think you even need to work out because you body is bangin already.

    I saw that a couple days ago and thought the same thing! Since when did having curves equate to being plus size?

    I found this article offensive as well. I’m a size 7. Which is considered normal. If your a size 2 and the media thinks your a 2xl. It makes everyone that is my size feel like where over weight.
    Kudoos for speaking up!

    I just got the workout DVDs last week and I have been doing the butt blasting cardio. I have only mastered one combination, but I lost 3 pounds already. Yeah !!!!! Anyway, Kim, you definitely are not plus sized by any means. You have a great body and are definitely a size 2, My husband keeps asking me after I workout, am I going to look like you. :)

    Should you do the 3 combinations 3 times per week with the butt blasting cardio or would you suggest daily?

    dont worry, you have an amazing body! I am about a size 2-4 also (depending on the fabric) but for some reason when i shop @ forever 21 sometimes I have to get larger sizes especially their bottoms,they are made for girls w/out a booty!

    That’s weird because to me the article just seems to be stating you’re a fan of forever 21, which you have mentioned on your blog before…to me it doesn’t seem like they are saying you’re plus sized or that you buy their new “plus size” line…but i guess everyone has their own perception. Maybe it’s how they worded it or something. Now a days a size 12 is considered “plus size” which is ridiculous since most American women are a size 12-14…so shouldn’t that be average size? I know a lot of women who are a size 12 to 14 but hold the weight wonderfully…they are considered “full-figure”. Some women who are in the “full-figure” range do exercise and work on their body kim, just because someone isn’t a size 2 doesn’t mean they are lazy and eat cheetos all day. Anyone with eyes can see you have a great body, who cares about some lil blurb in a magazine.

      Jelly I agree with you 100%. Its hard for Kim because Hollywood puts so much pressure on weight. However for myself my thought is that weight is all in the way you carry it. Doesn’t matter if its a 2 or 16
