It's taken a lot for me to finally be semi-comfortable in the body I'm in. Last time I measured, I was 36-31-47, at 173-175lbs (it's always fluctuating). I'm a curvy woman, and for the longest time I found that I needed to hide it. I pretty much dressed in baggy clothes and jeans most of my life because I felt out of place and didn't want anyone to see my belly or wide hips. I've started to appreciate my curves, but it's not easy all the time. It's always a tug of war with wanting to show them off to hiding them because I feel it looks so disproportionate. I still feel disproportionate at times, but IT'S OKAY. I'm still learning about the ways in which I can flatter my body, and dressing up to make MYSELF feel better. I never wear crop tops, but I think I rocked this outfit pretty well :) Believe in your body and yourself, but don't get discouraged if you're not feeling yourself all the time. Whether you want to dress comfortable or sexy, do what makes YOU happy. :)
It’s summertime and you know what that means??? THAT’S RIGHT, LADIES BATHING SUIT SEASON! So shed off those winter coats, get your curvy butt in a bathing suit, and make ‘em SWOOOON! End body shaming once and for all!

My first submission, heeh.
I’m not entirely sure of my exact measurements, but I am 19, my height is 5’5, and I weigh 173 lbs.
I have never been thin and I have always been up and down with my weight.
I was picked on a lot throughout my junior high years because of it. In the end, I’ve grown into the beautiful woman I am today and regardless of all the hate and judgement, I’m still flaunting my curves and learned to love myself. Killin’ it with confidence !
18 years of age. 173 pounds. USA pant sizes 11-15 depending on the stores kindness.
I honestly hate my body. I feel like my overall prettyness hides the fact that I’m wide-set and I have rolls. Eh, feeling confident is not a familiar thing for me. This blog does help though, thanks to all you lovely ladies!

This page has done wonders for me. To this day, I don’t know what I’d do without. My self-esteem has skyrocketed. All of you ladies are absolutely gorgeous!
Last night was the most confident I’ve ever felt in my own skin. And I want the world to see.

18/US 36-29-44 173Lbs 5’10” Finally starting to lose some of the weight that my uncontrolled thyroid disorder caused me to gain. Yay for being actively in control of my weight again!
I weigh 173, and I’m 5’ 10”. I just feel really crappy about myself. I don’t know…I never feel as if anyone reassures me about how I look. I suppose I’m just looking to feel as beautiful as everyone on here is.
I’m 20 years old, 5’5” and 173 pounds. My measurements are 40-30-43 and i’m a US size 12.
I’m currently trying to get in better shape and have already lost around 20 lbs. While I still have a ways to go, i’ve finally come to accept my body type and overall shape. I know that there’s a more defined hourglass hidden under there somewhere and I can’t wait to enhance it even more through a combination of cardio, strength training, and eating right!
I’m the girl that submitted a photo of myself in a corset…it got such a lovely response, I was pretty overwhelmed, couldn’t believe it got over 1200 notes!
I just wanted to add that burlesque is a great ego boost for curvy girls - I started professionally dancing a couple of years ago and it’s great fun, really helps you to learn to love your body!
I’m now 173 pounds :-) Girls of ALL shapes and sizes are beautiful - I think there was some misunderstanding with my last post. Women that are HAPPY IN THEIR SKINS are beautiful - the reason men didn’t like me smaller is because I was unhappy! Be happy ladies, you’re all hot stuff!! :-D
