Are you or have you ever been "dainty"?

I'm a big girl, I always have been. I used to envy the girls with the tiny waists who wore dainty little jewelry and had dainty little fingers and toes. Now I could really care less, I guess I've embraced my non-daintyness, hehe =)

  • Nope, I've never been dainty. When I imagine dainty . . I imagine fragile and very small boned. I am very petite and a few years back I was 100lbs soaking wet, but even still . . I was never dainty. I've always had a medium bone structure. My mother in law is what I consider dainty (or she used to be) . . . I can't even fit my fingers in her leather gloves.

  • I've always been fairly small, and have a little bone structure. I'm curvy, I don't usually describe myself as dainty.

  • Ive always been bigger too, but my hands and feet have always been small. I gain weight everywhere but my hands and feet haha. at my highest I weighed 278 and I couldnt even fit my fingers into my 12 year old sisters rings cause her rings were too big for my tiny fingers... She isnt big either... Now I weigh 230 and am 9 months pregnant. I was 206 before pregnancy... once this baby stops being stubborn and comes out I will lose the rest of the weight and see if the rest of me becomes equal to my hands and feet

  • i've never been dainty. Just not my physique! I have been thin, but thin for me was a size 10 jeans. And to think I was self conscious back then! I'm a size 14 now and would LOVE to be a size 10 lol
