I’m another soul who’s had a hard time finding body shapes that remind me of my own and, honestly, it’s a bit hard still. I’ve only recently found out that I have BDD and it’s a struggle, so seeing women in all shapes and sizes that are gorgeous and bubbly encourages me to focus a bit less on all my faults. It’s a long way still but having my tumblr-feed being full of you gorgeous women makes my days better. Thank you.

I’d love to hear from others in my size-range, and any others of course!
I have spent years and years letting a poor body image stop me from living life to the fullest. This submission is a big step for me in claiming my life back. Who knows what’s next? I might even muster up the courage to wear this to the beach! I want to be happy and healthy and embrace all that is beautiful in this world. I’m still working on embracing myself, but I’ll get there!

I have been feeling really self-conscious about my weight, in particular my thighs and arms, recently. I would normally NEVER be brave enough to submit this, but after scrolling through page after page of this blog I’m already feeling more confident. There are so many confident, beautiful girls out there who happen to embrace their curves. I hope to be able to love myself as well soon. :)

Hi, my name is Jess, age 28. I’ve been recovering, on my own, from an eating disorder for over a year now (loosely following Minnie Maud). It wrecked my life for at least 5 or 6 years. It’s been the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do, but it’s been so worth it. Within the past year I’ve gained roughly 60ish lbs and over the past few months have tapered down a little. I don’t know my exact stats, but I’d guess to weigh around 185 lbs (5’8”) — wearing size 12-14. I’m finally in the awesome head space of liking the shape my body has taken on. I’m no longer preoccupied with my body, but living the life I wasted away for so long instead. I still have down days, but I stop and think of all the awesome shit my body can do for me. Through all of this, I’ve come to appreciate all shapes and sizes of the human body. They’re beautiful, and I’ll never abuse mine again the way I did for so long. ♡

Its taken a lot of hard work and positive thoughts to get me on the path to self love but I’m much closer now than I was even 4 months ago.
Ive never owned short shorts. The closest I would let myself go is just below the knee. I decided this was going to be the year I have more fun with myself and just let go of so much negative thinking.
