    Instagram brings back #curvy to search results
    Hashtag was originally removed from search results because some content didn't follow terms of use

    Instagram users can once again search #curvy after the term was banned from the social media site's internal search engine for some time, causing an outrage among plus-sized women who use the hashtag to celebrate their bodies.

    The hashtag disappeared from Instagram's search engine earlier this month, Mashable reported.

    Instagram user Vintageortacky questioned how the term curvy could be considered harmful after learning that the hashtag was banned.

    Other variations of the search term, like #curvygirl and #curvywoman, remained active. Some users tweaked the spelling of curvy and started posting their photos under #curvee. Some Instagram users protested the site's new policy by populating their photos with those hashtags.

    "Keep calm Instagram and bring back #Curvy," wrote Curvybostongal79 overtop of one of her pictures.

    Instagram did not return CBC News' request for comment. But, a company spokesperson told multiple news outlets that the term was banned because some content donning the hashtag violated Instagram's rules about nudity. The company does not allow users to post nude, partially nude, pornographic or sexually suggestive photos on Instagram, according to its terms of use.

    However, Instagram recognized that many of its users use #curvy positively, rather than to spread problematic content, a spokesperson told Mashable. The company decided to reinstate the ability of users to search for photos with the hashtag, but with some controls to ensure its not used to spread content that violates its terms of use.

    Loey Lane, a beauty and plus-size fashion video blogger, celebrated the return of #curvy with a bikini picture.

    "It's back y'all," she wrote.

    Fashionpeepshow also posted a bikini picture with "#Curvy taking it back!!!" superimposed over it.

    Vintageortacky joined in the celebration. She posted a picture in one of her favourite dresses, which she said "celebrates my #curvy figure!"

    However, despite Instagram search indicating #curvy had more than 2.1 million posts as of Saturday afternoon, hitting search only brings back nine results. There was no option to load more pictures.

    On mobile search, all the photos appeared to be loading.

    One Instagram user pointed out that while #curvy is back, #thick and #BBW, which stands for big beautiful woman, haven't been given the same reprieve.

    Searching both hashtags leads to an error message.

    "Sorry, this page isn't available," the page reads. "The link you followed may be broken, or the page may have been removed." It then offers a link back to Instagram's main page.

    The company has previously come under fire for censoring certain types of photos, including ones of models with pubic hair, breastfeeding mothers, women's nipples and a plus-sized blogger's butt selfie.

    That's not curvy. That is morbidly obese. Go try eating a salad.

    Ok, there's "curvy" and there's obese. As a woman, it pains me to even say that, but I'm sorry, those women are not "curvy." :oops:

    JFTR, I speak as a "curvy" woman myself, so I'm not just being a bitch. (Well, ok, maybe I little :dontknow: )

    I'm all for self-esteem, but those women are just plain unhealthy.

    I like to think THIS is curvy....

    Yes, that picture is of a curvy woman. Actually a good looking body in my opinion. The women up top are disgusting

    Oh look. Another thread to evaluate womens' appearance.

    Loving themselves is better than hating themselves.
    Who cares really? Why?
    If these women feel good why tear them down?
    To enlighten them of their poor health? Does anyone say anything to model waifs about their health?

    Let it go.
    Don't like it?
    Good news nobody is making you fuck it.

    As far as sending the wrong message, I'm pretty sure wrong messages are being sent every day and it's up to parents or the individual to sort out what's right.

    Half of those women aren't even curvy. Curvy does not simply mean fat.

    Not trying to make anyone feel bad here. It just gets old.
    And the more these women love themselves, the more hate it brings.

    There are much better demographics of people much more deserving of this ridicule and shaming.

    WHo cares. Some people like great big fat women. I don't. But i'm not all offended and shit by fat people. As for their health, i couldn't care less about their health. At least their slow suicide doesnt stink like smokers. :dontknow:

    Well, let me just add another two cents, if I may. And, naturally, I can only speak from my own experiences, etc.

    Those women may be putting on a big smile, oozing self-esteem, and giving the illusion that they are completely happy with themselves. But, I would say for the great majority of them, that's all just a facade.

    I've been there. You might remember me posting a few months ago about how I had lost 85lbs. I've been right where most of these women are, and I'll tell ya, I was miserable. Oh, sure, I ALWAYS had a smile on my face, and never showed it, but on the inside, I was miserable. I KNEW how unhealthy I was, and how I was shortening my life, and so on. I finally made the decision to do something about it, and I'm so much happier for it. I still have a ways to go before I will be at my goal, but my goal has nothing to do with a number on the scale. It has to do with my health, and just physically feeling better. No more aching knees and back, etc. I want to be around to watch my (better not be here for at least 10 more years!) grandchildren grow up, you know?

    It wasn't my intention to shame and ridicule these woman for flaunting their bodies. Like I said, I'm all for self-esteem. I just think that beneath the smiles, there's pain there. It just makes me sad for them.

    Ok, I'll climb down off my soapbox now.... :oops:
