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.

Recovering from a binge eating disorder. Learning to work with what I’ve got.
18 years old, 5’7” when I’m not slouching, and between 160-170lbs I don’t check anymore though, 34D-29-40 !
5’10, 160 lbs. Lovin’ every inch of curve (:
I don’t always love my body but I’m not afraid to say I look good in a tight dress!
This is my first submission here on Curve Appeal, and I have to say how much I loved this blog and how much it has helped me accept my body. Last year I gained almost 20 pounds ; I freaked out. I lost some of the weight (not exactly through the healthiest means) but I still didn’t lose those last 10 pounds. But at 160, I looked in the mirror and thought I looked great! And that’s when I realised that I‘m more than just a number on the scale. Screw the BMI, I‘m cute as hell!
Hey girls! My name is Isabella I’m 5’2, 17 years young, and 160 lbs. I use to hate my body, I use to cry myself to sleep every night because I thought I was disgusting. I never felt good about myself and I always put myself down. Then one day I came across this site, I spent hours on here, looking at all of you beautiful women and your gorgeous figures. You women are the definition of beautiful. You girls gave me the inspiration and self-confidence to get on here and prove that everyone is beautiful no matter if you’re 120 pounds or 220. So thank you all for the inspiration. Stay beautiful ladies! I don’t know my measurements but I am a 36D, and I wear a size 13 (US).
This was taken on my 27th bday and I fucking love this pic. It has been too long of never being happy with the way i look and feeling annoyed by my crazy weight that refuses to leave my body. I am always striving to be positive, but some days I am not. This year I decided to try my best to accept this body I was given… all the 5’3” (36-31-41) and 160-155 pounds of it. So what if I don’t have a flat tummy, the inside of my thighs jiggles and i am plumper than I would wish to be. What is important to me is that I AM HEALTHY AND FIT because I put the effort to eat well and exercise even when sometimes I don’t want to. I may not look as “skinny” as I would wish, but I am HEALTHY. The point is to love yourself more so that you want and strive to be your best self inside and out.

My name is Hannah, and this is my first submission - I am 5”7 1/2 and weigh around 160. I’ve never been all that happy with my body, but a good night at the bar with my friend in our 80’s garb made me feel amazing (I am the red head)
I tossed the scale and have never felt more confident about myself!

I’ve been an athlete my whole life. I’ve been an equestrian for 15 years, and was also a Muay Thai kickboxer for 2 years. I also grew up surfing on the CA coast. I’m currently a Physical Education major and I’m a vegetarian. Everyone who knows me always complains how “I’m always on a diet!” and I’ve finally learned to let go and quit weighing myself. I beleive in a healthy lifestyle and tend to follow an 80/20 or 90/10 rule meaning I eat about 90% healthy and treat myself about 10% of the time. My kitchen has no junk food or baked sweets in it and my fridge is stocked with fruits and veggies, I don’t eat meat, and I love to cook healthy vegetarian and vegan recipes! But I don’t deprive myself of a slice of birthday cake or I’ll order that dessert occasionally when I’m out to dinner.
I’ve always wanted to be a good role model for younger women and realized that I needed to be happy with myself. My boyfriend always compliments me on my figure and I always used to kinda of say “I’m working on it” and now I smile and say “Thanks honey!”.
My name is Cassandra. I am 5’5” and weigh 160 pounds now.
This picture is after I lost 10 pounds.
I never felt more comfortable to be in a swimsuit, but I actually posted this on Facebook for the first time xoxo
17, almost 18yrs old. last weigh in: 159.5. 5’4in. 36DD.
it’s getting to that point where I’m beginning to become a little more comfortable in my own skin. Had so much ups & downs with my body for the pressure to be skinny, to be beautiful in my own eyes. I was never accepted really in my extended family’s eyes because every other girl in the family was super skinny & I was just a walking watermelon to them. It damaged my childhood but it will certainly not destroy my future now. I’ve punished my body way too long but now I’m accepting my body more than ever & I’m proud to have my curves & stretchmarks.
Hi, I’m Ariana!! I’m 15 yrs old and I’m Colombian
I weigh 160 & my measurements are 38-30-41, and I’m 5’4.5
I really love my body and I wouldn’t change it for the world, all the ladies on here inspire me to love my body no matter what, I don’t really have that much of an accepting family, but I hope one day they’ll love my body like i do.
I’m so glad to know I’m not the only curvy girl in the world, and I thank everyone for that:)
5ft 2in, 38DD bust, 160 pounds
it’s always been really hard for me to keep weight off, no matter what i eat or how much i exercise. I’ve always had big boobs (C cup by 6th grade), i hit puberty way faster than any of my friends, and i’ve always felt pretty self conscious- especially around my skinny friends. After going to college I gained about 10 pounds, but right now, i’m at the happiest i’ve ever been. I’m learning to stay healthy and worry less about measurement numbers…they’re nothing but numbers to me!
