Mensagem:  Yes, there is definitely a difference. Depending on the subject. A woman is curvy (curvaceous) but not bendy, for example. A curving or curvy road is a winding road - a general description - whereas a 'bend' is specifically one feature. In that case bend is the more common usage. When used as a verb, bend is more common.
