Never have I been comfortable in a bikini bottom and that includes the one shown. I’m 18, 5’4” and learning, slowly, to love my body and all it’s flaws.
I weigh somewhere around 150lbs and my measurements are 39-32-42
Dani- 22- 5’4”
Size: Anywhere from 8-12
Years of body image problems and struggling to love myself have been melting away. I still have my off-days, but I am more in love with myself and my curves than I have ever been. Two years ago, I was just breaking out of my shell, formed by years of self-loathing, eating disorders, and depression. Now nothing can bring me down :)
I am chronicling my adventures in style and fashion as well as embracing my identity as a curvy lady on my blog, This is What A Dani Wears- http://thisiswhatadaniwears.blogspot.com/
If anyone has any questions for me, they can leave them at my personal, cupdanicakes.tumblr.com.
Love this tumblr, love the message, love all of you. <3
I hesitated to submit this picture, not because I think I don’t look beautiful enough, but because this is my unfinished “Gwen Stefani ala Harajuku Girls” and I take my Halloween costumes very seriously. I decided to submit it anyways because I think this picture really embodies how I feel in my skin at this present moment.
I was a competitive Figure Skater for 13 years. From the ages of 12 to 19, 7 years of my career, I battled with bulimia and anorexia. But after going to college and being in recovery for 2.5 years, I feel better than I ever have. I am 5”6, I don’t know my weight [and I like it that way], I am a 36 D, and a size 8 with measurements of 38-32-41. I have learned that my size doesn’t impact how people perceive me, and if that is all they are focused on, they are not the people I want to be around anyways. It really comes down to the content of my character. It’s amazing how simple that sounds, but it really was a hard concept to digest for a long time. Letting go of my control over my weight has allowed me to grow into a person with valuable accomplishments that do not include my weight. And I feel more beautiful than ever. I feel fierce. I feel amazing. And nothing can take that away from me. Not a dress size or a waist measurement or a number on the scale. I’m sad I spent so much time feeling terrible about myself when I was smaller and actually more of the “ideal”. Every woman DESERVES to feel beautiful in their own skin, and it’s thanks to this blog and other forces out there that are focused on empowering women that I was able to see and find confidence in my own beauty. You are ALL beautiful, and I’m really not just saying that. You deserve it, you owe it to yourself to BELIEVE it. Because you’re the only one holding yourself back. Confidence is sexy ;)

I’m 19 years old and I’ve struggled with body image and self-esteem my whole life. Now that I’ve grown up a little, I realize that my body isn’t who I am, but it is a special part of me that I need to take care of by eating right and exercising. As long as I’m healthy and I love my body, that’s all that matters. Around 180lbs, 5’2”, 39-32-44!

As a Korean, I never really fit into the Korean beauty standards. (Pale skin, skinny, tall, etc.) Ever since I was little, I was kind of on the chubby side. But don’t get me wrong, because I loved playing sports. I used to dance, play on a soccer team, martial arts, water polo and swim. Anyways, I used to get poked fun at and teased a lot about my weight. I was bullied a lot and I never really learned to love my body. It’s hard to love yourself when you’re constantly being put down by the people closest around you, which includes family and friends. So I ran across this blog a while ago and I instantly fell in love. I loved the idea of having a support group of women just like me. I was too embarrassed and shy to submit anything at first. But now, I feel a bit more confident. I’m learning to love myself little by little. ^_^
I’m 16 years old, 5’4 & My measurements are 40 - 32 - 41. I weigh 158, and I’m so proud of myself.
I love myself for who I am and I hope everyone on this website feels the same way.
I’ve looked through this website 4392047231 times, and all the girls are just so stunning, it makes me sad to think some of you don’t consider yourselves DROP DEAD gorgeous.
Also, I’d like to thank whoever runs this AWESOME tumblr page!
Seriously, you have inspired hundreds - maybe THOUSANDS of girls to show off their flawless bodies :)

I just really want all girls to realize that it’s 100% possible to be happy with your body no matter what size it is. For God’s sake, it’s 2013 PEOPLE. People have gone to the moon. Holograms have been invented. Gay marriage has been legalized. But people still can’t get it through their minds that skinny isn’t the only thing that’s pretty. Do you realize that we’re the ones that need to stand up and say “No. I’m not a size zero but I am still beautiful.” I don’t need to change my body to be happy.
