    4. So, you have a history of amazing role models!

    5. It helps that curvy girls are super smart.

    Women with a greater difference between their waist and hips score significantly higher on cognitive tests than their non-curvy counterparts.

    6. In fact, you're amazing at a lot of things because of your body. You make pretty impressive babies.

    Curvier girls have more omega-3 fatty acid DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) in their bodies. This is essential to proper brain development in children, which means that their children may be smarter and have more developed brains.

    7. And may live longer than your not-so-curvy friends.

    Curvy girls are less likely to have heart-related problems. Scientists say it is because hip fat appears to contain a beneficial natural anti-inflammatory. The anti-inflammatory, called adiponectin, they say, prevents arteries swelling up and becoming blocked.

    8. That's more years to rock your signature look.

    10. Kill it in black!

    11. And you have a kick-ass belt collection.

    12. You have the best butt.

    13. And boobs!

    14. Which make men go crazy for you.

    When men look at curvy women, the same reward center in their brain that activates while doing drugs will turn on. This means that men are basically getting high off your curves.

    15. So rock out to your theme song.

    16. And be proud of your bootyliciousness.

    Because you're fabulous!
