Jessica Simpson Embracing Her Curves

Even through all her weight ups and downs, Jessica Simpson continues to be one gorgeous and talented lady. What I love about Jessica is her attitude that if she gains a few pounds, it doesn't concern her. Recently, Jessica's figure has become a little fuller and she tells Us Weekly, "Curves are better. I don't get the whole rail thing. It's not good for your heart, it's not good for your mind; it's emotionally destructive, it really is."

Isn't that attitude refreshing? It's great when a celeb speaks out about weight and lets everyone know that she's not going to starve herself in an unhealthy way, just so she can fit the mold that the media says she should.

Jessica showed off her new curves while performing songs from her country album Do You Know at a concert over the weekend. Then on Sunday, she hopped on stage at the KISS Country Chili Cookout in Pembroke Pines, FL. While those high-waisted jeans aren't exactly accentuating her womanly figure, I am deeply impressed with her healthy body image.

I couldn't care less what size she is. Does it matter? Those jeans are ugly and I can't imagine they would be flattering on any figure, but if I made the kind of money she makes, I'd spend it on whatever the heck I wanted and not give a rip what others think about it. Why does anyone care that she looks like a normal woman and not some twig? If she is happy and healthy and comfortable with her body, then leave her alone. And if she's not, let her get herself together without the rest of the world picking on her.

High waisted pants aren't flattering to anyone. What don't people get? Her arms look gelatinous, that belt is hideous, the outfit is an abomination.

The Web is just blowing up(pun intended) over these photos. What was she thinking wearing this get up?? It's not so much the weight gain, that's not a big deal with more flattering clothes. It's the fact that she decided nothing would be better than to emphasize it with horrible mom jeans and those ridiculous double belts. Whoever said that high waisted jeans are back in style is seriously on drugs.

LOL, I just looked at those pics again and it totally looks like her entire outfit was from QVC...the mom jeans, the gaudy earrings, the stretchy belt. Then I found out that she actually has a handbag line that she sells on QVC...too funny!

She's a big yo-yo dieter, which can't be any healthier than being rail-thin all the time either. I think she probably works out all the time, but that doesn't cancel out a bad diet. I do think she would look a lot better if she had a better stylist though. She looks pretty terrible in that outfit. If she really is sincere about "curvy is okay", I hope she follows through and doesn't lose 30 lbs overnight by doing some stupid fad diet to get super skinny, which would be unhealthy, according to her.

I've saw her at a free concert at Chase Field... what can I say, I want to see the train wreck and trust me it was no let down. I can honestly say she is a complete idiot. I really just have no respect for her... I used to think it was an act, but I'm pretty sure it is just her. She should really learn to just shut up, especially when people are booing her because she is two minutes into talking about "Her boyfriend Tony Romo." It was seriously ridic.! And seriously, how the hell did she even manage to get those jeans on? She is cute girl, but those jean... good god no!

I don't see any curves. Perhaps I have a different definition of curves.

Kudos on the attitude but pants are a crime!

Ditto with FrancoiseHardy, GaelGirl and SoapBox. It's great she's comfortable with her body - yet still a bit hypocritical how super skinny she got only a couple of years ago..

She looked better as Daisy Duke, she was at a slim healthy weight then. Now she has gone up a few sizes and is bordering overweight. I see pics of her often going out to eat, like for steak & things like that and probably also eats things like pizza & beer (as she's dating a football player). Her weight yoyo's a lot. Her attitude seems to be more like, "I've gained weight due to lack of exercise and junk food, whatever" instead of "I'm naturally curvy and healthy and work at keeping my body in shape, instead of being stick skinny due to a diet of coffee and cigarettes". Just my opinion, but she doesn't seem to have that healthy of an attitude. or any good fashion sense whatsoever...

OMG She is NOT overweight. This is a horrible angle. Saw more photos of her in this outfit on another site and was thinking she actually looked extremely cute.

That is lovely, however ever extra pound of belly fat put her at greater risk for heart disease. I'd like to say pleese take care of your self, it's ok not to be stick thin, but be careful.

Being rail thin is not good, however, gaining to much weight quickly is not good for the heart either. Jessica looks like she has put on more than 10 pounds. She has put on at least 15 to 20 pounds. For a person who is 5'2", the weight gain can make a person look alot heavier. You can definitely see it in her face, arms, and chest. She also doesn't dress appropiately, that outfit makes her look heavy.

I totally agree with gaelgirl and AMP, but really, I just think that's a bad shot of her. She's wearing an extremely tight shirt and mom jeans, so naturally she's going to look bigger than she really is. Judging by her arms and thighs, she's only a bit overweight, nothing to worry about However, I just want to add that curvy and "plus" size is technically not the same. Curvy is all about your hip to waist and hip to bust ratio. Just because someone gains a tad bit a weight, doesn't necessarily mean that they are curvy. A thin woman can be curvy as long as there's a significant difference in inches between her waist and hip/bust. (I'm pretty sure 10 inch difference defines someone as curvy, but my friend swears its 7.)

i'm kinda sick of people labeling fat as healthy curves. overweight is not healthy. i'm about her height & i know if my waist looked like that, it wouldn't be healthy. when a woman yoyos & lets her waist go above 30 inches, she is putting her body at risk for tons of things including heart disease. you don't need to be a rail or obese. MODERATION PEOPLE! i'm glad she's comfortable w/ herself though.

She seems to have put on that weight pretty quickly. I know she has a very healthy appetite, but I don't think putting on that weight that fast is very healthy. Also, curves are one thing and fat rolls are another. And with how short she is, I think she better start paying attention. I can honestly say that I think this is the biggest Ive ever seen her.

I think those style of pants look bad on -everyone-. And I agree 100% with Jessica on the emotionally destructive part (from personal experience) and I'm really glad she spoke up about it! I hope she really is embracing the curves and doesn't do the 20 lb weight loss thing.

She would look better if she didn't wear MOM jeans.

I think it's great that she has such a healthy attitude towards her body. She has a great figure and as long as she's still working out and eating healthily, I say good for her! I do agree with the rest of the comments though, bad outfit decision, but I can't help but think the camera angle is also to blaim!
