What does BBW mean?

The meaning of BBW is “big beautiful woman”.

It is a euphemism for women with a voluptuous body.

Origin of the term

Both the phrase and the abbreviation was coined in 1979 by Carole Shaw when she started the BBW Magazine, that served as fashion and lifestyle journal for big boned women.

With the appearance of the internet and with it, online dating, “BBW” became more and more prominent, on advertisements, chatrooms, not to mention adult entertainment sites.

Spread of the term

“BBW” had appeared on Urban Dictionary in 2003 and a plethora of varying definitions were written on the matter.

Some people consider “BBW” to be an example of euphemisms which promote unhealthy lifestyle choices, by easing on the weight of the expression, while others find that it is the right choice of expression since it reduces bullying, which is already directed toward obese people quite often.
