Does it have to do with height? I mean, I am 5'11" and such.
I don't think there are hard-and-fast rules for these designations. I'm 350 at 6' 0", and I don't consider myself a SSBBW; I'm fairly well-muscled, and while I experience stigma for my size it's nowhere near the kind of stigma many of my SSBBW friends receive. In other words, I can still 'perform' thinness, as silly as that might sound. Perhaps a better way to put it is that I still experience some thin privilege.

But I think this is loosely tied to weight and more closely tied to how you self-identify. If you self-identify as a BBW -- well, you know your body best, so you're a BBW.

Agreeing with BlackJack and Artemisia. Also to add, I think the distinction first came about when what stores carried what clothing sizes tended to be more clear cut. Regular sizes went to a 13/14, above that you went to the plus sizes section or plus sizes store, up to a size 26. After that you were pretty much on your own (sew it yourself, catalog order, etc). Regular sizes, plus sizes, and the uncatorized area that you could call super-sizes.

These days sizes vary more between stores, and the size ranges stores carry varies more. But in some very vague (or fuzzy and squiggly as BJ put it) way, if Lane Bryant carries your size, you are probably not going to get much argument about calling yourself a BBW.

Ever since learning the metric system for a class I found that more precise and easier to calculate:
Like a 'normal' not ideal BMI weight is height in centimeters (in your case 5'11" = 180 cm/1.80 m - 100 = 80 kg x 2.2 = 176 US pounds).
Supersize-dom in metric terms definitely is above a 1:1 height to weight ratio = in this case 180 kg (= 396 US pounds), sometimes I've also seen double/2 x the 'normal' weight = 2 x 80 kg = 160 kg = 352 pounds.

IMO both are more realistic than the calculation you mention, also looking at your picture, you're definitely a B(seriously)B - W!

You put 250 at 2012....you meant 2011 right? After all, it'll more likely be 260-270 by 2012 lol

Lovely pic at 250. I like the full roundness of your lovely belly. Very sexy. And I am still dreaming of the 350 one...

Do you want to send a lovely pic of your belly for my bellyblog at the dutch site mooidik.blogspot.com? I'll write a lovely blog about your round belly

Default Discovered the community and automatically became bigger

Since I found out I'm a real FA and discovered the community 4 years ago I stopped dieting and automatically became bigger. Also I went from prefering BBW's to prefering SSBBW's. A sort of self-acceptance, and I feel good about it. Despite of family and relations telling me I'm getting to big. So this is me 4 years ago at 264 lbs and this is me now at 355 lbs.
