I bought Simplicity pattern 1800. It fits sizes slim, average and curvy. How do I know if I need a curvy or average size? The pattern does not help with this problem.

I'm guessing it's by cup size. The website says, "Slim, average, and curvy with B, C, and D cup sizes for miss and C, D, and DD for plus."

In my experience with this line of Simplicity patterns, the "curvy" is simply additional width in the back for full buttocks. I have an hourglass figure with high hips, and somewhat flat buttocks. The "curvy" pattern buttocks area had a lot of extra fabric on me. I ended up making an average, which fit me much better than the curvy.

My daughter wears an F cup and uses the slim pattern shape with a major FBA on the D pattern. I would suggest checking the waist/hip ratio of the pattern to yourself to decide which way to go.
