Hi, I’m Dulce. I’m 5’4” and weigh around 150lbs.
This was my first time wearing a two-piece bathing suit and I loved it!

Hey! My name is Eilis, I live in Philadelphia, PA and I’m an 18 year old college student. I’m about 5’3, I’m roughly 180-190 and I’m a size 14-16/38H. 
I’ve always been a bit bigger than average; but I’ve also always had an athletic build which made it easier for me to stay in shape. When I was about 13, I started to develop breasts and that made it really hard for me to run and play the sports that I used to (gynmastics, dancing, soccer etc). 
By the time I was 16, i had gained about 70+ pounds, and I was a 38G. I was really upset, I didn’t know what to do and it really took a toll on me. I would obsess over everything I ate and limit myself to an unsustainable amount of calories a day. I would try my hardest to work out but it was just so difficult- a lot of my weight was muscle and it was really hard to lose/sports bras only do so much lol. 
As I got older, I realized that I needed to focus on being healthy, and not the number on the scale or the number on my jeans. I realized that this is my body type, and that’s something I will have to live with. Why try to change something about yourself when there’s nothing really wrong to begin with? So what if was “plus sized” or whatever you want to call it- I was still the same person. 
My boyfriend of 3 years has been by my side the entire time, and he loves every single one of my curves unconditionally- so why shouldn’t I? 
I’ve lost a little bit of weight since my initial gain- but I’ve stopped weighing myself altogether. Instead of struggling to be thin, or obsessing over my flaws I am learning to embrace, love and honor every curve on my body- and it’s safe to say I am SO much happier now.

hey girls! how goes it?
I first found this blog on the interwebs when I was probably about 14/15 years old, but this is my first time submitting. You have no idea how much you all have helped me in my journey to body confidence! 
Like many of you, I’ve struggled with my size for a long time. Every summer of my middle and high school years, I would come up with a plan to lose weight so that I wouldn’t be the “ugly duckling” anymore. And so that I could wear cuter clothes and boys would notice me. I feel like I wasted so much time worrying about my weight and wanting to get thinner. Its only in the past year or so that I have began to accept my body and see its beauty. I’ve finally realized I don’t have to fit societies standard of beauty to be beautiful. And neither do you. Yes, YOU! :)

I’ve finally decided that as it’s summer and it’s getting warmer, it’s just all about rocking what you’ve got and feeling comfortable while doing it.
Shorts from Asos if anyone is in love with pony print as much as me! :)

I am Charlotte, and I am from West Sussex, UK. I am 24 years old, and I am a size 18UK and 5,9”. I went to a letter ‘B’ themed party, and decided to go as Bowser, being the geek I am. I have always been conscious of my large thighs and calves but decided to get them out and wear some glossy leggings for one night only!

I know this isn’t your typical before and after pic, as we are conventionally taught we should aspire to make ourselves smaller.  But I wouldn’t have my before and after any other way.  the photo on the left is me around the time I was diagnosed with EDNOS with anorexic tendencies— at around 100 lbs I was losing my hair, I stopped menstruating, I couldn’t stay awake for more than a few hours, I would lose feeling in my hands and feet doing simple tasks like typing or writing because my nerves were being damaged. I was sick and wreaking havoc on my body because I had this idea put in my head that cheerleaders and dancers needed to be thin and fragile.  Today I stand at 5’2” and weigh in at 150.  36DD—28.”—42”.  at 20 years old (as of yesterday :D) I have been  in recovery for almost four years, but I’m still paying for the damage done to my body.  I was destroying myself based on complete falsehoods put in my head by society and my environment. I love my body today. I have never had this much energy and I’m in the  best shape of my life. this is the way my body was built to be.  I am so strong and I would take my muscular thighs and strong biceps and big calves over my former state of being any day (while there’s nothing wrong with being thin, there was nothing healthy or natural about my lifestyle: I am just not built to be a skinny girl).  Never let anyone tell you that curvy isn’t healthy. I now dance on my college poms team and I’m extremely active. healthy and thin aren’t interchangeable.  Be proud of your body and everything that it’s capable of.  Be nice to it, we only get one.
