I like the black one better.

I questioned whether of not she was really a size 12 too.

But when you are wearing designer clothes the numbers really are much smaller than what Jane average wears. In other words…she’s may be a size 12 in the designer/upscale quality clothes she wears now, but at the same size, wearing “bargain” or average name clothes she may be closer to a size 14/16.

I was shaped A LOT like her (before having kids) and I was a 12/14. I could have been her body double from the neck down.

You go girl … Jennifer is a beautiful young women and she has a beautiful body … full figure and all … don’t let stardom change who you are. Keep it real, and you’ll be loved by many for your honesty. I loved you in Dreamgirls and I’m looking forward in seeing you on the big screen again.

Correction…I am an actress who had to try on some designer duds for a show and they were cut small. I actually had to go up a size.
And the camera adds “10lbs” they say. I say it’s more like 20. I believe that she is a normal size 12. On film and compared to size 0 sticks she may look larger, but I think she’s fabulous. Get it girl!

Again with the American Idol reject. Come on these dresses she is wearing lately are just too tight. She will never ever be like Beyonce. She will always be a fat ugly Jennifer. He voice is not all that either. The only reason she got an Oscar is because they felt sorry for the poor ugly fat girl!!!!!Beyonce will always be the R&B Queen. Jennifer Hudson who????? HAHAHAHA:)

Shot she’s rockin the 2 dresses without the sleeves. Her figure is a sexy full “thick” figure. To me that is healthier than them “skinty” girls. Plus she knows how to work it everywhere she goes.

She has tremendous talent and she is a size 12. So all you haters need to stop hating and let her do her. You loosers are just jealous and they wish they had as much talent as she has. Keep it up j-hud
