I’m two years into recovery from anorexia and am struggling with body image issues at the moment. Instead of giving in to those negative thoughts and hiding myself away I decided to face it head on: I got into my bathing suit, took a photo and am now submitting it here (and then I got into the hot tub which is at our holiday house that we have rented for a week and relaxed in there for an hour). Even in the face of strong negative thoughts about my body, I’m trying to own my curves rather than reject them, and so here I am.
42-32-42 - This dress makes me feel incredible.. and so does my daily dose of curveappeal. Thanks crew x

This is my first time submitting to curveappeal and before this I had my reserves but thought, “dude, just go for it!”. I’ve struggled with my weight my entire life (21 now) and for the last couple of months I’ve made some pretty crucial steps towards the journey of self-love. I’ve realized that my body cares about me so much. It does everything in its power to keep me alive and it loves me, so why shouldn’t I love it back??
I love this text post and thought I’d share it, since it’s helped me a lot:
i think freckles, stretch marks, tattoos, bruises, birthmarks and scars are probably the coolest thing, you started with almost a blank canvas and look at u now, all this evidence that you’ve lived and the sun has shone on you and you’ve grown and maybe tripped up a few times and liked an image so much u made it a permanent part of u!! beautiful!!!

bought a new dress and felt like taking some photos, these are the 1st full length pictures ive taken in forever, last time i checked a was about 12-13st and im pushing 6ft height wise :3 size 14-16.
second submission. the last time i submitted, i had lost a bunch of weight, and now i’ve gained a lot of the back and am learning how to love my body at any size.
wearing what i want and showing skin because i decided that anyone who changes their opinion about me because of my weight doesn’t deserve to be in my life anyway.
