Hi im Aliyah. I love this blog! I love to crochet and learned to a couple years ago. I found I loved making crop tops, but never made any for myself. Well this year I said heck with it and made myself a crochet crop top and love it!
I am 5’6 currently weighing 160lbs and wear between a US size 10 & 12
I’m Jasmine, I’m 5’9”, weighing 160 lbs and at size 12 and I’m trying to accept that.
My first year wearing a bikini EVER! Dont be afraid to show your curves ladies!

This is the face I make when people say curves aren’t beautiful.
34/30/41 and I weigh about 160…Ive always struggled and felt different because of the way I’m built. Im half cuban and have been muscular and curvy most of my life. As I got older, i learned to love my body more. It is a process though. My amazing boyfriend loves me for me and wouldn’t change anything about me. I work out 5 days a week and stay active and that helps a lot…
I am 140lbs, and measurements 36, 28, 41. I have never been small, and at one point in my early teens I had such a warped idea of beauty that I never for one second would have thought to put on a bikini. Now at nearly 19, I am finally happy in my body. I love ME!
I’m the momma to 3 little ones. I’ve never been petite and I have struggled with eating disorders of all kinds for the last 12 years or so. I’ve come to realize my body doesn’t like to be under 150 lb mark. It takes severe calorie restrictions and excessive amounts of exercise to get it there. I don’t want to live that way anymore, I will break this vicious cycle of self hate not just for me but for my daughter as well. I am learning to love my curves. I am learning that beauty isn’t defined by the size of your jeans but maybe beauty is having soft curves for my babies to rest on. I’m done hating this glorious body that I call mine.
I fluctuate between 150-165

This site is so fantastic! It helps me keep perspective of what matters. I’ve struggled with EDs and my body image since age 10. Now at age 24, I’m ready to love my natural body shape.

HI!!! I love this blog, I look at it daily! It makes me feel good about my curves. I have always been so uncomfortable in my own skin and I recently started crossfit…and well I am obsessed. I LOVE how strong I have gotten and I am more focused on being healthy and strong. I LOVE MY CURVES now and my muscular thunder thighs!
I’ve struggled with my new “womanly” body for almost 10 years now. After always being the petite thinnest girl (98lbs at age 18) in the room, turning 19 and gaining lots of curves was a huge emotional challenge. Everyone made comments about my new body and though none were cruel they weren’t always positive. Now at 28 I’m finally learning to love the new me and own my curves!

In high school I was an avid athlete, but after my first varsity cross country season ended around age 16, disordered eating habits in combination with changes in my hormones caused me to gain ~30 pounds. I felt so uncomfortable with my body for so many years, my weight fluctuating up and down as I continued to struggle with disordered eating, and it wasn’t until I saw a therapist that I realized that my all-or-nothing mentality when it came to my body was unhealthy and unsustainable. I realized I didn’t need to exercise so intensively it led me to injury, or lay in bed at night with a rumbling stomach because my meager dinner left me hungry. I threw out my scale, I stopped being so hard on myself, and I’ve NEVER been happier.
I’ll never be the 120 pound girl I was when I was 15, but I’ve learned to love my “new” curvy body. I’m excited to wear a bikini on the beach for the first time in almost ten years! I’ve never felt stronger (emotionally or physically!). If anyone is struggling with disordered eating, I encourage you to see a therapist or counselor. It will change your life.

Sometimes I feel like a manatee squeezing into a clothes meant for a baby doll. And sometimes I feel like a beautiful feminine goddess. It’s ok to have these feelings.
I love the amount of uniquely beautiful human bodies on my dash because of this blog. It’s truly wonderful :)
