This is my first submission here. I’m Amanda. I have dealt with anorexia, BDD, OCD, body dysmorphia, self harm and more in the last 5 years. I’ve come a long, long way and I’m learning to accept my body. I was hoping posting here, where I get so much support would help me! Feel free to message me for support, ever.
I use to hate my curves, but now I am becoming more and more comfortable with my body. I am starting to love myself. Seeing this blog helps me feel confident! All the women on this blog are beautiful and seeing women with similar body types as mine look so gorgeous really empowers me. I am on a body confidence journey :)
(sorry about the bad quality)
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.
Height: about 5’10
Weight: about 200 lbs
This is my second submission to Curve Appeal - the last being around two years ago. It’s in the same mirror, I’m the same big-legged gal, but I’m around 20 pounds heavier. I haven’t been feeling myself due to the weight gain (thanks to emotional/bored/oh well, why not eating), so I’m working at getting to 140 again!
Age: 21 Height: 5’3” (and a half) Weight: around 158 Measurements: 38-31-40
I’m happy and blue and proud of who I am. 40-32-40 148 lbs 5’7
It’s summer season AGAIN, and it’s nothing to dread ladies! Summer is about FUN! It’s never a competition between you or anybody!! Go out there and show the world your amazing body: curves, bumps, and all! Confidence is key, so make ‘em swoooooon! :)

I’m still trying to make peace with myself, but I’m getting there :)
My name is Kaitlyn, and I’ve struggled with my body image for my entire life. I’ve gained about 20 lbs in the past year, and it’s been a huge hit to my self esteem. This blog is so inspirational! I have not seen a single submitter who wasn’t absolutely gorgeous. I still have a long way to go when it comes to loving myself, but this blog has always and will continue to help me through the process of self acceptance.

My name is Danielle, my measurements are 38-32-40
I usually wear a size twelve to fourteen.
The dress was a “one size fits all” from pacsun. :]
Actually trying to get used to this body. Having some Self-Image problems with myself currently. I am 25 and have always been tiny. About 100 pds. The whole hour glass figure, 34-24-34. Then I met my current boyfriend and he helped me quit smoking and that was back in October. I now have these curves, my pants don’t fit me and I am a little depressed about it. Trying to learn to love myself and find clothes that help me.
I’m Louise and I can wear crop tops too. The gorgeous ladies on this blog have inspired me to be a bit more confident. I try and stay healthy and hope that weight loss will go along with it; but it’s really helped me to know that weight loss is not the be all and end all, and it certainly won’t change how good I look. I look good now!
I suffer from severe scoliosis. I’ve been called a lot of messed up names and I’ve always had a body different from those around me but I don’t really care what people think of my belly, my cellulite, or my spine!
