Never have I been comfortable in a bikini bottom and that includes the one shown. I’m 18, 5’4” and learning, slowly, to love my body and all it’s flaws.
I weigh somewhere around 150lbs and my measurements are 39-32-42
After a long struggle with eating disorders and weight loss/gain I am now very comfortable with my body. I’m happy!

Years of body image problems and struggling to love myself have been melting away. I still have my off-days, but I am more in love with myself and my curves than I have ever been. Two years ago, I was just breaking out of my shell, formed by years of self-loathing, eating disorders, and depression. Now nothing can bring me down :)
I am chronicling my adventures in style and fashion as well as embracing my identity as a curvy lady on my blog, This is What A Dani Wears- http://thisiswhatadaniwears.blogspot.com/
If anyone has any questions for me, they can leave them at my personal, cupdanicakes.tumblr.com.
Love this tumblr, love the message, love all of you. <3
I have checked out this blog for so long and so admired the girls who were confident enough to post with pride… I can finally say I am one of those girls! I’ve come a long way with my own body image, but am now starting to recognize that beauty is not just cover-of-Cosmo deep… Curvy, sexy, happy, healthy. <3

It was a long time coming, but now that I look back I feel absolutely ridiculous that I ever felt ashamed of my body. EVER.
All of the time and effort I was trying to put in to making myself look more “appealing” to others accomplished nothing but making me miserable. Once I realized that and started focusing on how I viewed my own body and achieving my own happiness, I realized how silly I had been. All of the “flaws” I had seen before started to disappear until I literally saw none of the ugly portrait, that I myself, had painted.
Ladies, I cannot stress this enough: being happy makes you beautiful.

I know I submittied fairly recently, but I love this blog so much and am so excited to share my curves with all the other beautiful curvy women here!
I feel like everyday is a new opportunity to embrace your body and love yourself a little bit more- even if it is sometimes difficult!
I want to thank all the fabulous people who submit their photos because they’re all so wonderful and beautiful!

Once upon a time, there was a young woman who ate almost nothing. As a result, she weighed almost nothing. Then one day this wisp of a girl realized that to continue to live her life with such utter lack of strength and stamina was to waste it. So she threw out her itty-bitty clothes, donned a pair of stretchy pants, and made herself a batch of sticky sweet cinnamon buns.
In time, and with a lot of love and patience, she grew into a hopeful and happy, size twelve version of herself.
MEASUREMENTS: waist 31”, bust 39” (32G), hips 42”, height 6’
I wanted to submit these silly photographs to thank my darling boyfriend, supportive mother, the YourEatopia forum community, Gwyneth Olwyn, Matt Stone, and this tumblr, for helping me realize that calories and curves are awesome, and for guiding me on my journey towards better self-compassion. I’m relieved not to have to obsess over what I eat anymore, and excited about what the future might hold. *big hugs*
24 years old, 5’ 3 &3/4ths, 150 lbs (give or take a few) measurements 36, 29, 42. For as long as I have remembered I thought I was fat if I didn’t weigh 125 lbs, wear a size 2 and have a 25 inch waist (this was reinforced my jerk of an ex boyfriend who called me fat for 4 years) needless to say I always starved myself and worked out like a maniac. About a year ago God taught me how to love my self. My real self/my inner self (heart) and that started to blossom into loving my outer self (body) flaws and all. I came to the realization that my curves should be embraced. Im not a small framed girl, never have been and never will be . Beauty comes in all sizes , shapes, and colors and it really does start with loving yourself from within and being healthy… not trying to fit into someone else’s stupid standard of beauty. Bless you all, you all have been such an inspiration to me. Love and value yourself first and others will start to do the same. Curvy girls rock!
