BBWSinglesFinder Releases Top 40 BBW's Of All-Time

Originally released November 27, 2006:

As Hollywood continues to pressure beautiful women to lose more and more weight to be considered beautiful, thinks it is time to celebrate 'real women.' Real women are confident, sexy and beautiful no matter their shape or size. There is a phenomenon that started on the internet a few years back called BBW. BBW stands for Big Beautiful Woman.

This does not necessarily mean a fat woman. A BBW is a woman who is proud of who she is and isn't ashamed of her body. Contrary to what Hollywood would have the world to believe, not every man wants a pencil thin woman. Many men want their women to be real. They want their women to have curves. A true BBW is confident, sexy and real. She is a Big Beautiful Woman. The following list is presented by, the internet's premier online dating site for BBW's and their admirers, online since 2002.

Here are our Top 40 BBW's of All-Time:

1. Marilyn Monroe - Considered one of the sexiest women of all-time, and by today's standards, she would be considered a BBW.

BBW Personals Plus - Another Quality BBW Dating Site is a quality BBW Dating Site. It hasn't been around as long as some other BBW Singles sites, but it's definitely holding it's own. The site was part of the MingleMatch family of dating sites until MingleMatch was bought by the Spark Network, plc.

Spark is famous in the online dating world because of their online dating behemoth sites, and (Jewish Dating).

Because of the acquisition, has really picked up steam over the last year or so. It's definitely a site that I would recommend you join as a free member to check out all the features. My philosophy is simple. Join three or four of the top BBW Personals sites for free and then decide which one or two you should upgrade to a premium membership. Here is what you can do with their free membership:

  • Post your own profile
  • Browse other profiles
  • View photo gallery
  • Read message boards
  • Send and receive smiles
  • Send and receive e-cards
The last two are really cool options that some sites do not offer for free. For this reason, I think you should definitely join for free and see what happens.

Good luck and Happy BBW Dating!

What is a BBW?

In this day and age of skinny super models and low-carb this and low fat that, an online dating niche has been quietly but rapidly expanding it’s bountiful wings. It is the online phenomenon called BBW. What does BBW stand for? It stands for Big Beautiful Woman. And, a recent search on Google revealed over 29,000,000 websites reference her.

Why is this niche so popular? Because being overweight does not mean ugly. There are a growing number of men around the world who like voluptuous and real women. Plastic surgery may be blossoming, but many men find it a turnoff, and are looking for the real thing.

There are a growing number of online dating sites that cater specifically to BBW women and the men who are attracted to them. What is shocking is the number of men who are members of these sites. Obviously, Hollywood may prefer their women skinny as twigs, but in the real world, men prefer curves.

Because this online dating niche has become so popular, it's hard to know which sites are the best to join. That's where this site comes into play. I've been involved with the online dating industry for over five years now. I own a BBW Dating Site myself and I am the webmaster for a number of other online dating sites.

While I feel that my BBW site is the best in the world (If I didn't, then why would I own it), I also feel there are some other sites that are worth joining, and I'll share them with you as well. I hope my experience will help you figure out which site is the best for you. On that note, I welcome you to my blog and hope you enjoy reading about the Best BBW Dating Sites on the Web.

Good luck and happy BBW Dating to you all!
