My name’s Kate, and I’m 5’5”, 160 pounds, 37-31-39.
I’ve always been obsessed with fashion, which is an incredibly difficult arena to love sometimes when you’re not a size 2. Thankfully, I ADORE retro, 1950s fashion, which has instilled a ton of confidence in me!
I’ve always lusted after a career at a fashion magazine, with my goal being to change the way the magazine industry views women’s bodies. I want to feature women of all sizes and shapes and prove that fashion, truly, is for everyone.
I had a pretty big body freakout recently, as I got a summer internship at Marie Claire magazine. For a little while, I doubted everything I love about my body, curves and all, afraid that I wouldn’t fit in in the magazine industry if I didn’t diet like a maniac. But now, I’m seeing clearly. I’m staying exactly as I am, and continuing on my path to helping women adore themselves from head to toe.

Turns out, vintage slips LOVE curves! I’m 5’2”, 130 lbs, and my measurements are 36-29-39. Most of the time I’m pretty good at loving my body, but not always - all these submissions really help!
My measurements are 40-29.5-39. I am a U.S size 12. Used to model then I got too “fat”. Been struggling with my size since I hit puberty. I am 21 years old, and finally feeling confident. Love that I found this. Recently my boyfriend told me “I love your curves. I’ve never been with a curvy girl before, and I have always wanted too” More girls are trying to become what they think is right instead of accepting the beautiful way in which their bodies are.
“You look good, did you loose weight?” I always get asked this question after times where I was sick, stressed, miserabel etc. It’s true that I loose weight when I’m unhappy. And some people might find me more attractive then. And it took me some time to realize, that it’s not a good thing. My body reflects my troubles. And now I’ve come to a point where I’d rather be big and happy then skinny and sad.

I’ve had body image issues for my whole life. Through therapy, I am learning like and accept my body for what it is and always will be….curvy. I am 40 years old, 5”5, 138 pounds. 36D-29-39
5’6” 170ish lbs, size 10 jeans. 34-31-39 I used to be a size 4-5 and after birth control and a sudden onset thyroid problem, I’ve been struggling to accept my new body, but here it is!
I’ve always felt very self conscious about my body and have just recently started to come to terms with myself.

I’m really happy about my body. This year I got brave enough to get a bikini, thanks to my boyfriend and I think it has boosted my self confidence. I’ve been meaning to do it, but in the past people around me would say things about other plush* people that ended up discouraging me whether they knew it or not. Now the things that used to dislike about myself are the things I like and find cute about myself (like my rolls). I am about a size 10 or 12 depending on the cut, but I’m a lot happier than when I was a size 6 and suffering from a low self image. I’ve come to appreciate my body for all it does for me, and I am glad I found someone that likes my curves just as much as I do. ;)
*I dislike the term Plus-Sized because I’m always like “plus what?”
I tossed the scale and have never felt more confident about myself!

I’ve been an athlete my whole life. I’ve been an equestrian for 15 years, and was also a Muay Thai kickboxer for 2 years. I also grew up surfing on the CA coast. I’m currently a Physical Education major and I’m a vegetarian. Everyone who knows me always complains how “I’m always on a diet!” and I’ve finally learned to let go and quit weighing myself. I beleive in a healthy lifestyle and tend to follow an 80/20 or 90/10 rule meaning I eat about 90% healthy and treat myself about 10% of the time. My kitchen has no junk food or baked sweets in it and my fridge is stocked with fruits and veggies, I don’t eat meat, and I love to cook healthy vegetarian and vegan recipes! But I don’t deprive myself of a slice of birthday cake or I’ll order that dessert occasionally when I’m out to dinner.
I’ve always wanted to be a good role model for younger women and realized that I needed to be happy with myself. My boyfriend always compliments me on my figure and I always used to kinda of say “I’m working on it” and now I smile and say “Thanks honey!”.

Celest. 19. 5’2”. 135-ish lbs. 37-30.5-39. Iv’e always had issues with the way my body looks. When I was little I was one of the skinniest girls in school. Then I hit puberty and ballooned outward. I have stretchmarks that I don’t like. I can’t remember the last time I had a thigh gap. My breasts aren’t perky like I want them to be. I hate looking at other girls and thinking “I wish I could look like that”. But with the help of this site and my boyfriend of 3 1/2 years I’m starting to accept myself for who I am. I will always be a curvy girl, and you know what? I’m ok with that.
5’2” and 133 lbs.
I’ve hated my stomach for as long as I can remember. I let barely anyone see it and I never let anyone touch it. That’s changing slowly, but it’s a process
