Hi, I’m Emily.
I’m 19 and have suffered serious problems with my body for as long as I can remember. I was bullied at school for my size, bullied at secondary and bullied by my partners. I’m 5’9” and a UK size 14. I have good days and bad days but deep down I know my body is perfectly normal & that I actually love my curves. It helps that my girlfriend supports me, regardless of my weight fluctuations. Curves are beautiful. Bums, tums, thighs, boobs, arms, calves. They are all beautiful and human.
We are all beautiful.
5’7” 38-27-44. 170lbs. This is a great site! I am 30 and always struggling with my weight. Especially since I’m a special fx artist & body painter and work with teeny tiny models all the time. It took a lot of zombie makeup to get me in a bikini and shorts, lol. I am learning to love my booty, because its not going anywhere! But I am proud of my curves and my artistic abilities!
omg where did she get this dress?
i like her vibe. and that skin tone got me jonesin!
Finally learning to love myself after 29 years of struggle. Love this H&M dress I bought for NYE 2013. 36 x 31 x 41, size 12.

We’re all curvy and lovely :) Prom2013.
All my life I always felt fat. At a young age other kids would exclude me, they would make fun of me, I always felt uncomfortable eating around people, and I had trouble making friends because I had a low self esteem.
As I got older, people became slightly more accepting of me, I also was not as chubby as I was as a little kid. But in the back of my mind there was always something telling me that I would never be good enough and that I’m ugly and should stop eating. I still get it from time to time.
Sooner or later I sort of adopted a “whatever” attitude towards my weight and everything. It was in this mindset that I realized I’m not as bad as I think I am. I may not be a cute little wisp that could be blown away by a gust of wind, but I am happy with who I am, even with my little chest and full hips. It’s ok to look like this, it’s not abnormal. I’m going to embrace the body I was born with.

I’m also an aspiring write and recently posted an article on the dangers caused by the misrepresentation of women in the fashion industry. It can be found here: http://maraschinomelly.wordpress.com/2013/04/17/the-dangers-caused-by-the-misrepresentation-of-women-in-the-fashion-industry/

My name’s Kate, and I’m 5’5”, 160 pounds, 37-31-39.
I’ve always been obsessed with fashion, which is an incredibly difficult arena to love sometimes when you’re not a size 2. Thankfully, I ADORE retro, 1950s fashion, which has instilled a ton of confidence in me!
I’ve always lusted after a career at a fashion magazine, with my goal being to change the way the magazine industry views women’s bodies. I want to feature women of all sizes and shapes and prove that fashion, truly, is for everyone.
I had a pretty big body freakout recently, as I got a summer internship at Marie Claire magazine. For a little while, I doubted everything I love about my body, curves and all, afraid that I wouldn’t fit in in the magazine industry if I didn’t diet like a maniac. But now, I’m seeing clearly. I’m staying exactly as I am, and continuing on my path to helping women adore themselves from head to toe.
