Site Update: A Goodbye Message

After a decade of covering celebrity body shapes and sizes, fashion choices and body image, Skinny Versus Curvy is closing down.

During the last 10 years, we have noticed a major shift in society’s perception regarding body types and body image and we witnessed the body acceptance movement debut and reach huge popularity. We feel that what used to be a somewhat heated debate 10 years ago (hence the name of our site: Skinny Versus Curvy) is no longer a relevant topic in today’s climate. We did our best to contribute to this shift by featuring a wide range of body shapes and sizes on our site when few outlets did, in the hopes of extending people’s perception of beauty.

We are eternally grateful for all of our visitors, especially those who stuck with us throughout the years and wish everyone the very best.

Thank you for being a part of the SVC family!

I’ve been here all this years and this is the first time I get to comment first… how bittersweet. I loved the site, visited daily and helped me recover from eating disorders (I know it sounds weird but it did). Thanks for the entertainment, the free content and the community, will miss it a lot.

No, I meant fat (as in high body fat percentage).

a last TREAT to all of you: go watch the last D&G runway show, I believe it is spring/summer 2019. It includes a lot of body diversity, plus age diversity (another topic that I LOVE), plus gorgeous dresses.
It went too far in my opinion with hiring an obese model (other than Ashley Graham, who is quite chubby but I wouldn’t say obese..), but it is an amazing show nonetheless! lots of thin women as well. you’re welcome 🙂

I always admired how you didnt post pictures of younger girls (under 18) which other sites do and allow comments. I thought it was really classy. Cant believe its been 10 years, good luck in your future endeavors, we’ll always have the archives – 10 years worth!

Going to miss this site- it has been my guilty pleasure for ten years. Amazing to see the shift in the conversation and the emphasis on health and fitness. Have always LOVED the special type of troll this site seems to get, the good debates and the awesome and not so awesome fashion trends. Big love from Australia.

“Wokeness” kills another good website. Thanks for 10 awesome years. You helped me to recover from my own body issues. Best of luck.

I’m pretty sure Versus started the website in her early twenties from what I understood… yeah, people change, passions and priorities change in 10 years. Hell I’m not into anything I used to like at age 23… can’t blame them.

This is a blatant lie. You weren’t able to easily monetize the site without alienating your fanbase so you decided to ragequit rather than learn and study about proper spamless virusless online advertising.

Let me break this to you, cause you seem confused and keep repeating yourself in each post: a site like this, with a history of 10 years and massive amount of info people actually search for most likely makes 1% from their loyal following. IF THAT. The rest of 99% of their income comes from search engine results. Those first time visitors don’t care about the ads, they come to get their info. They have tens of thousands of articles with highly searchable topics like ‘Kim Kardashian weight’. Just a quick search and you can see they are number 1… Read more »

In the meantime full page pop up has suddenly reappeared . Coincidence, aye.

I think the person is referring to the fraud ads that continue to come up on this site. Sometimes it makes the site completely unusable as you just can’t visit the site without being redirected to a fraud site selling fake Walmart card, Amazon cards, etc. I don’t think Versus does it intentionally but there are a few shady advertising suppliers used on this site which have the intention of scamming users. I see this happen on other sites too.

I loved this site, its really too bad to see it go.

Good luck Verse, I really hope you change your mind and continue to allow the site to live on!

i also read your page since the beginning and never left a comment. and it also helped me a lot, mostly cos reading through others girls thoughts was really inspiring. in the beginning there were so many awesome ladies who left interesting notes… thanks versus for the time i could spend here <3

Versus, thank you. I have followed this site from the beginning, although I was never a commenter. While it is mainly just a silly guilty pleasure, there has been some interesting social commentary on this site, and it has been interesting reading the regular commenters who often had such differing opinions (ie lc, Erica) thoughts on your posts, it was refreshing that people could differing opinions but generally stay civil in their discourse. At 31, I’d been starting to think that I was too old to be spending time on this site, and I think you are closing the site… Read more »

Oh! That’s a shame! But you’re right, and I’m happy the discussion is changing now. This site has been a guilty pleasure of mine for so long. I used to be a frequent commenter. Even though I had mixed feelings about it, it was the only site where I could talk about my issues with body image and eating disorders. I think it even helped me improve my English.

Thanks for all these years of this platform and good luck with the rest of your projects!
