The years I spent feeling like I was unattractive and unworthy are over. I look at other people’s bodies with such appreciation and enjoyment. I look at their fashion and adore it. I’ve finally been able to turn that appreciative gaze onto myself. To the ladies of this site, you are beautiful and you don’t need to change a single thing.

I despise my thighs but I’ll be damned if I spend another hot summer hiding them in board shorts.

Melly Maraschino from Puerto Rico. I was going for a vintage glam look!
I’m also an aspiring write and recently posted an article on the dangers caused by the misrepresentation of women in the fashion industry. It can be found here: http://maraschinomelly.wordpress.com/2013/04/17/the-dangers-caused-by-the-misrepresentation-of-women-in-the-fashion-industry/

My whole life I’ve been incredibly self conscious, when I was 10 and younger I remember refusing to wear shorts to school because all the other girls would make fun of me and call me “thunder thighs.” my parents were no help either, they would tell me how gorgeous I would be if I lost a few pounds or if I stopped eating so much. I guess I started loving my body when I got a tumblr, and saw this blog. It’s helped me so much and made me love my body. all 188 pounds of it!

I’ve struggled with my body all my life. It’s still not exactly where I want it but I no longer strive to look like a stick figure. I’m embracing my voluptuousness and working with what I’ve got and just toning it up a bit. Y’all are beautiful though and I’m so glad I found this site, whenever I get down on myself I just have to flip over here and it gives me an instant boost ^^
Howdy :) I’ve wanted to submit a picture for quite some time now, but I only recently found this bathing suit that actually covers the critical parts, as I’m a u.s. size 32H. I probably could have managed to take a more flattering picture, but alas I’m pretty lazy.I’ve never been thin and don’t plan to ever be (mostly because I’m not a fan of physical effort). I’ve had a curvy, busty body practically since fifth grade. I’ve had plenty of teachers at school who went out of their way to police what I wore in attempts to hide my chest, but I’ve never felt ashamed of it. My weight, height, and major hip-dips are another story though. I’ve sure bullied myself for that quite a lot and only recently decided to try out changing my mind rather than my body. So yeah, I think I’m somewhere on that path to acceptance, maybe even self-love, now :)
40-29-42, 5’7 and growing, unsure of weight because I stopped checking when I realized that it’s just a number that genuinely doesn’t matter; it is not and indicator of health and DEFINITELY doesn’t dictate how attractive you are.
