5 foot 1 size 12 and loving every second of it
so i weigh about 183, with measurements 38-36-43 packed into a 5’6 body lol
i just wanted to put out there that theres still days i cry about being fat and needing to run and theres days where i tell myself i dont need to lose weight, that i need to love myself.. i applaud the girls&boys who have found that happiness and confidence within themselves.
My whole life I’ve been uncomfortable wearing shorts/skirts without tights underneath. This summer, I am READY for the heat!
I always find myself smiling when I see natural body types, not models just regular girls. I love seeing regular girls bellies because I feel so inadequate about mine. I complain there’s not enough images like it about, whilst I sit with my belly. So I am being very brave and making one of those posts. I have a normal belly, not toned, just the body that keeps me alive. I am a size 14. I think its important for girls to see more regular bodies. Most people are not toned, or lucky enough to be super skinny, but the majority of us girls spend our life being upset for having a natural body. My belly is bigger at the bottom, and isn’t flat, but you know what that’s ok. Being regular isn’t ugly, at the end of it all I remind myself, its just a belly, and it does its job very well.
Being 5’5” and a size 12 I never thought I would be asked to model for anything. But my friend conceptualized a celebration of women through the lens of Lady Gaga’s Artpop album and asked me to help her with it. The support I’ve received through doing this has been amazing and I never thought I could feel so glamourous.
It felt so great to walk into my first day of work loving how I looked. As a curvy girl who dreams of being on TV, I’ve learned to let my poise and confidence guide me, not a silly standard of how a woman should look on screen. I have what it takes to make it, and I know I’ll look great doing it, curves and all.
Be confident in yourself in whatever you do, and the rest will follow.

Hello pretty ladies! I am 24, 5’3, 155lbs, and a cup size 34G. I have been having a hard time loving my body lately since I had some weight gain and this tumblr always cheers me up!
Sometimes we all need to feel like princess. In the world full of ‘size 0’ and diets all around, it’s hard to feel pretty, but once in a while we should stay in front the mirror and say to that beautiful girl up there - ‘hey, u’r lookin’ awesome!’. ‘Cuz pure beauty isn’t about size, dresses or hair, it’s about who we are ;)

Hello, my name is Daniela and I have struggled with image issues for a long time. I’ve had my own mother compare me to my younger, taller, leaner sister. But now that I am older I can’t help but think that maybe, just maybe I am as beautiful as my sister.

Hello all, just here to show off my glorious fat. I’m a plus model, and a full time college student.
Thank you <3
Hi, hopefully this is a clear enough picture of myself but, this is the first body picture I’ve ever taken of myself. I was having a really high volume of body confidence when I took it.
I’m Katya and I struggled with body image in a major way prior to this year. I never thought I would be pretty enough to take a full body picture of myself and smile in it. I’m a size 14/16/18 and I have always been. I’ve spent the past 20 years of my life hearing that I would never be skinny enough, but now I believe as long as I like the way I look in the mirror, I should be happy. I’m beautiful just the way I am :)
Hi! My name is Eleni, I’m turning 20 in June. I’ve been a curvy girl all my life, and I hated it for a long time cause my friends were “skinny” and my dad used to make comments about my size. However, i am a very sporty person! I was a soccer goalie for 10 years, i also dabbled in baseball & volleyball. I was bullied a lot because of my weight but when i hit high school, all of the commentary just kind of stopped. As i got older, i just got used to my body changing and started to love the extra lusciousness! My curve-inspiration is Christina Hendricks, when she’s in a lovely dress on Mad Men (which is always) i’m just like “damn! you GO girl!” I’m big advocate of loving the body you have now, not the body you wish you had. Flaunt what you’ve got girls!
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.
