35-31-43 & 5’7”
41-31-43. 5’5”. 190lbs. 29 years old.
Those numbers don’t matter as much to me as being able to bench press 110lbs or squat 200lbs. I’m so glad my body is naturally powerful.
I wanted to congratulate everyone here and tell you all that being a young woman is hard, but the older you get, the easier it becomes to accept how you are made and see the beauty in your own composition. Appreciate your own beauty, but don’t forget to use your body. Youth is fleeting, but strength, flexibility, speed, grace - whatever your body does best - only gets better with practice.
I’ve gained ten pounds since I started modeling in May. Half the time I want to lose weight, half the time I just want to be happy as I am, and all of the time I hate myself…
After a long struggle with eating disorders and weight loss/gain I am now very comfortable with my body. I’m happy!

Once upon a time, there was a young woman who ate almost nothing. As a result, she weighed almost nothing. Then one day this wisp of a girl realized that to continue to live her life with such utter lack of strength and stamina was to waste it. So she threw out her itty-bitty clothes, donned a pair of stretchy pants, and made herself a batch of sticky sweet cinnamon buns.
In time, and with a lot of love and patience, she grew into a hopeful and happy, size twelve version of herself.
MEASUREMENTS: waist 31”, bust 39” (32G), hips 42”, height 6’
I wanted to submit these silly photographs to thank my darling boyfriend, supportive mother, the YourEatopia forum community, Gwyneth Olwyn, Matt Stone, and this tumblr, for helping me realize that calories and curves are awesome, and for guiding me on my journey towards better self-compassion. I’m relieved not to have to obsess over what I eat anymore, and excited about what the future might hold. *big hugs*

Ally, 22, 5’5 size 10. 38-31-40
I recently started trying new things, one of those things was crop tops, I’ve always feared crop tops because on my size and shape, last week I just thought screw everyone else. I tried a few on and actually brought this lovely item because I said to myself that I looked good in it, I shouldn’t let myself take note of what other people think I should and shouldn’t wear.
Measurements - 43-31-43
Height - 5ft2
Cares given to what people think about what I look like in this crop top - 0!!!
I’ve finally found body peace! :) And it’s at a size 12; the size I’ve been for years. It takes a lot of thinking, a lot of cute clothes, and lot of me time and it’s totally worth it! But the cute clothes are optional! promise. I’ve been at this point before without cute clothes.
You just need to hit that realization that you are absolutely beautiful.
