The abbreviation BBW can often be found used in personal ads (and online dating services) denoting an identification with (or preference for) such women, and is also used to denote events specifically targeted to such women, and persons interested in them, such as specific gathering nights in dance clubs, restaurants, and fashion stores and shows.

The term is also commonly used as a positive euphemism by those involved with the fat acceptance movement.

Women who are attracted to BHMs are called Female Fat Admirers (FFA).

In the gay community, BHMs are called Chubs, and men who are attracted to BHMs are known as Chubby chasers.

The acronym BBBW refers to Big Beautiful Black Woman.

The term is a subjective, visually determined concept that does not have an explicit lower or upper weight limitation, and may denote women who may be considered barely overweight to those who are morbidly obese.

A 2009 study found that male fat admirers preferred females that were clinically overweight and rated both overweight and obese women more positively than slighter individuals.

The study also found that participants reacted more positively to a much wider range of figures than a control group, even rating emaciated figures higher.

It concludes "these findings suggest that an explanation for fat admiration may be that FAs are rejecting sociocultural norms of attractiveness".

A common misconception is that those who identify as feedees must be significantly larger than their non-feedee BBW counterparts, however one study found the average weight of self-identified female feedees was actually 20 kilograms lower than self-identified BBWs.
