I was in my 4th and 5th weddings this past year and one of my biggest insecurities has always been the fear of being labeled as the “fat bridesmaid”
After a lot of thought (and more untagging of Facebook photos than I care to admit) I finally realized that it doesn’t matter. I am incredibly blessed to have someone who cares enough about me to include me in one of the most important days of their life. On such a beautiful day, they want to be with the people who make their lives beautiful and how can I take away from that? The day should be no less special because the dress isn’t perfect for my body type. I shouldn’t be insecure about how I look in the dress because bridesmaid sizing is literally the cruelest thing on the face of the Earth and I had to order 6 sizes bigger than my normal size.
I am loved. I am happy. And that is beautiful.
Size: US 18/20
I’m LOVING what my body has become, and I’ll never stop wearing leggings ;)

All of you ladies are so incredibly beautiful. I see a few on here that have a similar body type as myself and it gives me hope that maybe I’m beautiful too! My whole life I’ve been around people obsessed with losing weight and being thin, including my mother. So when I grew up to find my extremely curvaceous body, I was picked on.. bullied.. and I felt horrible about myself. I could tell my mother looked down on me, and didn’t think I looked beautiful in certain things because of my body. And that hurt, because she is so petite and beautiful. It started at a young age, so I’ve been taught to look at myself and see fat. No beauty, just fat. And I’ve torn myself down for years. When I found this blog, my confidence started building. I have weeks where it’s really bad, and other times when I’m happy with myself. I want to make that time, all the time! So thanks to you guys, I’m on my way.

Hello, my name is Liana and I’m 24. I’ve been following this blog for a while, just never been a member of Tumblr until recently, and decided to share a photo!
Like many of you, I have gone through long periods of time with not being okay with my body and wishing it would be smaller. I’ve gone through bouts of both bulimia and anorexia. However, I have recovered and am loving my body just the way it is!
