Curve Appeal
Hey, lovely ladies! You all inspire me so much. It’s been a long journey, but I’ve come to love myself as I am with a lot of thanks to the body positivity on tumblr. So I hope I can also help inspire those women still doubting their beauty.
Currently I’m not sure of my weight or measurements (a part of my getting mentally and emotionally healthy), but I know I’m 5’4”, my hips are 50+ inches, and I’m almost certain I’m between 200-220 lbs. I’m a dress size 16/18 (USA).

I used to take literally 50+ pictures of myself a day, trying to see if I “looked” like I gained weight. It controlled and was ruining my life. Then I became pregnant with my son. I had no choice but to gain the 40 lbs that I did, and so with that my obsession and fear of gaining weight was overcome. Looking at my son, I’ve realized beauty is more than what a person looks like. It’s who you are. What you do. My son sees me as the most awesome-est woman and person on the face of the planet..not because I can fit a size 10/12…but because I help him, love him, live for him. This photo was last week when I went on vacation. I look at it and think I don’t look horrible, but I do want to lose weight still. But not because I want to LOOK a certain way, but because I want to be healthier. It’s an amazing feeling to see yourself in photos and not want to kill yourself, hide in a closet, have anxiety attacks…but you think, yeah I’m making a weird face, but I’m freaking gorgeous and awesome.Literally every person on this blog is so beautiful to me. This blog has changed my life, and when I’m feeling down I look at the gorgeous ladies on here and I feel so happy. Life is beautiful. Enjoy it now, not when you’re a certain size or weight.5’9//200 lbs//32-30-44size 10-14healthy as hell.

Hey, my name’s Camila. I’m a 15 year old canadian with a little extra weight. All my life, I’ve been trying to cope with the fact that I’m not perfect and that my body is far from looking like those in the magazines. It’s a hard thing to accept, let alone embrace and I look up to all those young girls and women who can be who they are without caring about others’ opinion. I hope someday I and all those girls who fell the same way as me will be able to feel fully confident about our bodies, no matter how much we weigh or how our bodies look.

I wanted to try and show the many facets of being curvy and living a happy and full life;ultimately, just being at PEACE with yourself. I struggled for years, but I’m finally at a good place mentally and physically. I work out, and am focusing on toning up some areas, but am no longer miserable with myself. I found the key was to not focus on the clothing in a smaller size, but on the clothing in the size that flatters my body. It sounds silly, I’m sure, but it changed everything. Don’t buy  size to “motivate” or bribe yourself to fit into it, get the real deal!
I was also told that “California is no place for you, you’re not stick thin, you’re gonna be miserable!” and well, let’s just say they were wrong. I fit in just fine. :)

My name is Kathryn and I’ve been a big girl my entire life. I stand at 6 feet tall and weigh about 200 pounds. I’ve always struggled with loving myself because of my size. In recent months I have gained much confidence and feel a lot more at peace with my body. I even tell friends that I am an Amazon and that I am a curvy babe. (:
I want everyone to love themselves. There are people out there who love you and there will always be someone that thinks you are sexy.

My name is Brittany and I’m 23 years old. I’ve always had issues with weight, ever since I was 8. I’ve heard it all, I’ve been bullied. And for the longest time, I hated myself. I had low self-esteem and often believed the things that were told to me. I even dated a guy for almost 2 years, even though he constantly harped on me about my weight, he even once told me that I could only get a guy by my personality, because I had nothing else going for me. 
The thing is, it’s not about how much gravitational pull I have. It’s all about attitude. When I was 17, I decided I had had enough. I was going to change, and I was the only one who could do anything about it. So, I did. Slowly, but surly, I’ve changed the way I think about myself. I go for fashion, I try the latest make-up. I’m sassy and short and adorable. And you know what? It’s okay for me to like myself! It’s okay for me to have self confidence! It’s okay for me to be picky with guys and to be picky with myself! 
Yes, I have off days. No, I will never be the willowy, thin girls that society tells me I should be. I’m tough and a little rough around the edges. I embroider hankies and drink hard cider. I’m a size 16-18 US, weigh 200lbs and am 5’3. Got a problem? Then you can take a flying leap. I’m me, and that’s just fine. And, yes, I’m beautiful, sexy, smart, funny, and just a plain goof. And, one day, I’ll find someone who likes, and maybe loves, me just for that. Because girls like me, we aren’t a dime a dozen, and I’m one in a million. 
Love yourself, girls (and boys!), because if you can’t find love for yourself within, you will never find love for yourself without.

I’ve never put my measurements, weight, or whatever else pertaining to my size out in public. For the past few years (my adult life thus far), my weight has fluctuated between 190-215 pounds. At times I get embarrassed when I’m at the higher end of that weight range, and don’t even feel like going out in public. I’ve always been one to encourage and point out OTHER people’s beauty rather than my own. But lately, I’ve been realizing how beautiful I actually am and slowly learning to embrace that. When you feel beautiful on the inside, it shows on the outside. Be concerned with what YOU think of YOU. not what others think of you. That’s where the pursuit of true happiness and inner beauty begins.

I love my shape. I try to not let others get me down when it comes to my size, I am who I am and no one can help that. I have been through alot lately and I just wanted to show that you can make it through anything no matter who you are.

SourceRoughly 200lbs give or take a few, and about 5’ 10”, which makes me a 14/16 in most stores. This is the heaviest I’ve ever been, but easily the highest my self confidence and body image has ever been. :)
The shorts are from Walmart, the top is from a thrift store, and the shoes are from JC Penneys.

I’ve been having a rough time lately finding my confidence again, but this dress helped significantly. I may not be a size 2, but I look HOT in this dress. I hope that women of all ages are able to join me on this journey to start to accept and love their bodies for what they are and have been blessed with. You have the power to define society’s standard of “beauty”. DO IT because you are so beautiful, I promise. I’m Margaret, 18 years old, 5 ft 3 inches, size 14, 38DDD, 200 pounds, and adoring my body. You can, too.
