My name’s Meg and I’m a happy UK size 14/16! I wore this out for my 19th and I felt sooo good! I always thought I was too big for bodycon skirts but, not anymore! Find me at http://megziworld.tumblr.com
I use to hate my curves, but now I am becoming more and more comfortable with my body. I am starting to love myself. Seeing this blog helps me feel confident! All the women on this blog are beautiful and seeing women with similar body types as mine look so gorgeous really empowers me. I am on a body confidence journey :)

I was always overweight growing up, but at the same time always active. I was in every sport from soccer to gymnastics to ice skating to softball. I was teased yes, but it wasn’t til high school when it really got to me. Sadly, from a comment of a boy, I became bulimic. In 3 months I lost 60 lbs. It wasn’t long until my parents found out. It was hard but I got through it, now, 7 years later, I do still have urges and thoughts and feelings when nothing looks good and I wish I was smaller. But I always have to keep positive, I try to eat healthy and got into yoga. It something where you don’t have to be compared or judged, but rather be your personal best. We are all perfect the way and size we are. There is no one definition of what is beautiful, we are all it.
I felt cute today :)

This pic is from my wedding day in May. I have always struggled with knowing how beautiful, valued, and wanted I am because I don’t fit the perceived “mold.” But through the support of this tumblr and the people closest to me, I realized that healing starts with how I look at myself. In the months leading up to my wedding, every morning before I took a shower I would stare at myself in the mirror and say, “I am so hot,” instead of all the negative things I used to say. I said it until I started to mean it… and it has changed everything for me.
Thank you to all the beautiful, amazing women who submit here. I am continuously inspired by you.

Love my body and I appreciate all my curves and working on being healthier and fitter. Big girls can be fit and healthy too.
Lately I’ve been feeling absolutely horrible about my body. So, I have decided to challenge myself by wearing crop tops, tank tops, short skirts, and to submit an image here.
I’ve gained 25 pounds in the last year and don’t feel confident in my body which makes it challenging as I eat when I am unhappy. I have started swimming lengths and eating better but it is still hard to feel confident and sexy in my body. I constantly want outside opinions, asking people if I look okay.
I am hoping that my little challenges will help me feel confident and to stop relying so much on outside opinions. It isn’t how other people perceive me but how i perceive myself.

My name is Devon :)
I’m 16, and weigh a little under 170 pounds. I’m 5”10, and my measurements are 40 32 42, so I’m considered a little overweight, but that’s okay, because I’ve always found people with a little more squish to be some of the best huggers.
This would be my second submission to this awesome blog.
Sometimes it’s hard to practice self-love. Even with all the support of people around you, from one day to the next it can be a struggle.
Don’t let petty things get you down.
All good things are worth fighting for. Body positivity is no exception.
