When searching for romance books online or in bookstores, you may have come across the term “BBW” and wondered what it meant. The term can refer to a couple of different things depending on context, but generally when it comes to romance books the term means:
Big, Beautiful Woman
It refers to romance stories involving a woman who is plus-sized and proud of it, and her relationship with a man – or women, or men – who appreciate her size. The stories don’t necessarily centre on the woman’s weight/size, but there are usually a fair amount of references to it throughout. These books are perfect for real life BWW women who are looking to find stories that paint plus-sized ladies – who are often marginalized or even fetishized – in a positive, powerful light for a change.
