I’m finally getting comfortable wearing mini skirts and they’re pretty much part of my daily uniform now. :)

When I was 10 years old I was pretending to be a ballerina in my backyard during a family gathering. My father chuckles and says “You’re too fat to be a ballerina” in front of our 15+ guests… I think I have been struggling with my self-image ever since. It’s a battle I constantly lose. No matter how much weight I lose I can never get rid of my wide hips and fat thighs, swollen upper arms and calves. I just gain weight more quickly than I can lose… and don’t get me started on the cellulite! But I am teaching myself to love myself and my body a little more each day. I surround myself with people who embrace all different sizes so I’m not feeling constantly judged. Overall, my self-image has improved, but I still have a long journey ahead.
5’3 - 165lbs
Holiday party outfit maybe? Trying out sheer & peplum at the same time because I’m losing my mind and ability to care
Hello :D my name is Crystal, I have had a hard time through my adolescence because family and people would always have something to say about my weight and I have a lot of self esteem problems from it but one day slowly but surely I’ll love myself as much as I wish other girls would love themselves. I’m 5’2 and my measurements are 38, 33, and 43 (holla for the big butt crew)
I’m wearing a corset here, but I usually don’t ;)
My measurements are 45-33-45 and I’m 5.7”
It took me a while, but I love my hourglass figure!
Couldn’t look in the mirror for a few years, but it’s getting better.
38 B/C, 33 waist, 47-53 hips that fluctuate between summer and winter. 5’10” tall. I love this blog because I just took my measurements and plugged them in Google to see what would pop up and this page was at the top. Then I clicked on my waist size and saw nothing but pure beauty. I am beautiful too. In this picture I was self conscious, but I can walk a bit taller now & embrace what God created because he does all things well.
I’ve been “big” my whole life and this blog has really made me start to accept my body. So thanks! My mesaurments are 39-33-39 I’m 5’7 and MUCH taller than my friends. Thanks for everything!
36-33-43, size 14, 5’5”, 180 lbs. I’ve grown up with this awful hatred of my body, learning from example in the footsteps of my mother. Diet, diet, diet; hate, hate. hate. I’m self-conscious, especially of my butt and thighs, and ashamed. I’m going on a school trip to France this summer and I’d been terrified of all the pretty, thin European girls by whom I’ll be surrounded. And then I found this bikini. By Esther Williams, this swimsuit makes me feel beautiful and curvy as opposed to frumpy and hideous. I don’t feel ashamed anymore. This blog has given me so much comfort over the years; the submissions I’ve seen remind me that in order to be beautiful, you don’t have to be thin, and you don’t have to hate yourself.
This was taken of me dancing on the beach a few weeks ago. I’ve never felt more confident about my body as I have the past couple of weeks. The number on the scale is starting to mean less to me, and the way I feel about myself and my body is becoming more important.
