^This. From what i understand, thick is referring to ample breasts, derriere, sometimes thighs but never any fat in the midsection, in fact a lot of the models people refer to as thick are almost cartoonish (IMO) in comparison to the average person. This culture seems to me right now to be obsessed with everything "larger than life" or "more than" -- lots of plastic surgery among the young people (over inflated lips for the face size, thin nose-the KK syndrome) body shape over exaggerated, kind of like a barbie doll syndrome except even more so. Right now the huge butt is in. Things that are unattainable. I should shut up now....
