18, 5’5”, 10-12 (US)
19 Years, Size 12, 34GG and happy :)
It took 18 long years of hating every inch of myself to get to the point I’m at now. I wish people could understand that no one can help you love yourself and your body besides YOU. Wake up every morning, look in the mirror and tell yourself you’re beautiful. Choose to stop believing what society thinks is perfect and know that you are. Love yourself, because it’s the best thing you can do to make yourself beautiful.
Oh, also, I’m 19 and an average of 150 pounds, which isn’t too much, but I’m a very measly 5’2”.
I love the way I look and so does my boyfriend. I’m happy!
For the longest time I felt absolutely terrible about my body, and couldn’t see anything about it worth loving or desiring or being proud of but thanks to a fortunate series of events, I have come to feel like the perfect venus and really, the thing is, regardless of your measurements or your weight or the way your bum looks or the swoop of your waist - you are a valuable human being with so many wonderful and beautiful things about you.
But yeah, here’s to being positively gorgeous and proud, which is something every single person should feel.

I would like to send my love and support for all the curvy girls out there! Everyone deserves to feel happy in their own skin. X
I’m so glad I tumbled onto this amazing blog full of amazing, beautiful, inspiring women!
I’m an actress and (recently) a petite plus size model, standing just under 5’5” tall. After years of resistance and struggling to “get my body back” — a 34-25-38, 123 lb frame that was nearly impossible to maintain (because I’m much more fond of fine dining than I am of stinky gyms) — I’m finally coming to respect and embrace my “new” 36-28-43, 148 lb body. I’ve stopped counting calories, and focusing more on what’s inside me than outside — I rediscovered a quick and creative mind and a full and beating heart that were almost buried beneath my body-obsession. I’m writing again! I’m painting again! And I feel sexier than ever in my own skin. Now I remember that my net weight is not my net worth, and I’m more than just a body — and the more I love my inside, the more I love my outside. I have a working body, and I know how to work it! This is my body today, and I’m happy and proud.
41-31-43. 5’5”. 190lbs. 29 years old.
Those numbers don’t matter as much to me as being able to bench press 110lbs or squat 200lbs. I’m so glad my body is naturally powerful.
I wanted to congratulate everyone here and tell you all that being a young woman is hard, but the older you get, the easier it becomes to accept how you are made and see the beauty in your own composition. Appreciate your own beauty, but don’t forget to use your body. Youth is fleeting, but strength, flexibility, speed, grace - whatever your body does best - only gets better with practice.

I’ve submitted once before already, but I just wanted to continue supporting this message as well as encouraging people to love themselves. We are all beautiful.
I hate how I look so freaking much, and I wish I was thinner, I wish my thighs weren’t so sensitive that i get bumps no matter what, they have never been smooth, i wish i didnt have stretch marks, and i wish i would let my boyfriend pick me up without the fear of him not being able to. i hate how i look so much.
My name’s Ashlee and my stats are 40-35-47 at 173cm and 93kg. Most of my photos showing my curves are in lingerie/underwear, haha! I’m an aspiring pinup model.
I’ve gained 10kg this year and 2 inches on my bust, 3 on my waist and 2 on my hips. I’ve been struggling to come to terms with this but am working on loving myself at any weight. I am super proud of my curves and always will be!
After a long struggle with eating disorders and weight loss/gain I am now very comfortable with my body. I’m happy!

My parents love for me has truly resonated in my love for myself. Sometimes if you don’t have that love surrounding you, it is hard to remain positive about who you are..especially in today’s society. However, if you ever are not sure if anyone else thinks you are pretty, just know that I believe you are! I know I’m not famous, but for what it’s worth you are all very beautiful and inspiring and no number on any scale can ever change that!! Believe it, because it is the truth :)
