Here’s my body. Included is the lower half of my body that I am usually too ashamed to post because it’s where the majority of my weight falls.
I have been in recovery from anorexia for 22 months now.
Some people seem to think that my healthy body is not acceptable. But you know what? I am not going to starve myself again to get down to a lower weight just so that those people will approve. I’m not going to starve myself to fit into some kind of “petite woman” mould. I’m not naturally petite. I wish I was, so no one would judge me and I would feel more secure in my body, but I’m not, and I am never going to be. I am trying to learn to accept and embrace my curves, and those who can’t accept them can f@!$ off. This is what my natural, healthy body looks like and I’m not going to hide it or change it because I don’t fit some people’s idea of what an “ideal woman” should look like. Trying to live up to someone’s unrealistic expectations of how my body should be is not worth sacrificing my health and happiness for. I am curvy, and I am trying to learn to be proud of that.
Hello lovelies! I recently found this blog and bless everyone that has submitted and whatnot. You ladies are truly an inspiration and have made me feel so much better about my body.
Seventeen, size 9-12 depending, 5’3”, 170pounds.
Thank you again for helping me find peace and looking absolutely stunning doing it! (P.s. sorry for the bathroom selfie hah)
The last few months haven’t been easy. I’m sorry I’ve neglected this space so much. I hope you can all forgive me. We can group hug, high five, whatever it takes!
For size reference, I’m wearing an extra-small. The dress runs absolutely too big. So size down, way down.
Dress: Free People - Necklace: Target - Boots: Minnetonka
I’ve been following this blog for years and this is my first time submitting!
I’ve always struggled with my curves because I was very thin until middle school and since then I’ve always been told I am too big or need to lose weight. I love being curvy though :)
Size: 8/10 US
Bust: 40 (30FF)
The swimsuit is Freya!
Today I decided I’m going to start being as kind to myself as I am to others…. and guess what… its working.
Screw everybody who ever told me I wasn’t good enough, smart enough, driven enough, or beautiful enough to make it in this world. I’m a kind soul, but I will no longer use that as an excuse to let others walk over me, nor will I continue to let myself use it as an excuse to hide under the covers for days on end, beating myself up for this shortcoming or that failure.
I am beautiful and kind and not taking anyone’s negativity anymore, not even my own.
Fuck eating disorders and body shaming and non-existent self worth and anxiety and depression and everything else I’ve let ruin my mornings, noons, and nights.
Hope you are all having a splendid evening and loving yourselves wholeheartedly. We’ve only got this one life… make it count. )
-I posted this on my blog today and got enough anonymous hate to irritate me, so I want to spread this even further!! Don’t let anybody ever, EVER, tell you you are worthless and that those around you are only around you because they can’t find someone better….
THE HATE NEEDS TO STOP.
So of course, you all are my first stop as I’ve posted here before.
5’3, all curves, all love. If anybody needs support please don’t hesitate to message me. pistoleighta.tumblr.com

I’m so happy there are websites like this to remind women to love their own beauty. There is beauty all around us. We’re constantly reminded of its presence — mainly, its presence in other women, other outfits, other bodies and rarely are we reminded to look at ourselves. Today, I feel like loving myself. I hope you all feel the same way.
As a plus size curvy girl, wearing print can often get frustrating because I always worry about if my boobs will stretch the print and make it look weird which really blows considering I love print! Here’s me wearing my favorite flowery shirt :3
I’m another soul who’s had a hard time finding body shapes that remind me of my own and, honestly, it’s a bit hard still. I’ve only recently found out that I have BDD and it’s a struggle, so seeing women in all shapes and sizes that are gorgeous and bubbly encourages me to focus a bit less on all my faults. It’s a long way still but having my tumblr-feed being full of you gorgeous women makes my days better. Thank you.
Bust: 43 in.
Waist: 34 in.

I’d love to hear from others in my size-range, and any others of course!

I have been feeling really self-conscious about my weight, in particular my thighs and arms, recently. I would normally NEVER be brave enough to submit this, but after scrolling through page after page of this blog I’m already feeling more confident. There are so many confident, beautiful girls out there who happen to embrace their curves. I hope to be able to love myself as well soon. :)
