I’ve submitted on here once before, but it’s been about 2 years. I’m still at the weight I was then, give or take a few pounds, but I am so much more confident about my body. It’s taken a shitty relationship, a much needed breakup, and a few stupid guys to make me realize that I have a thick, sexy body, and no one should make me feel less beautiful because I’m not thin (by any means). :) I love who I am, I still want to lose a little weigh, because I’m diabetic and it’d be healthier for me, but I don’t feel the need to be skinny anymore. I just wanna be me! And if that’s chunky, cool beans! That just means that some guy will be so lucky to cuddle alllll this one day. ;)
Love yourself, ladies! I promise it’s such a stress reliever when you’re focused on life, rather than what size you are.
34g I think 👌
I’ve never been happy with my body. I remember being in the 1st or 2nd grade and looking in the mirror and thinking wow I’m fat. I developed long before my other friends. In the third grade I was the same as they were in the 6th grade. I was barely squeezing into a 34g by the 6th grade. My mom always put pressure on me to be thinner and I was teased quite a bit. I’m now 14 and a freshmen and slowly learning to love my body.

Hey dolls, I’m Sarah and this is my second submission :) it’s been a few years, but I didn’t forget about you! Guess what happened when I finally found the courage to start wearing crop tops out for drinks? Nothing! I had been so self-conscious to wear what I wanted that I would let just the possibility of others’ having negative opinions make me not wear it. After that, there’s just no going back to the way I used to be: waiting to be happy and letting others control the way I view myself, until I realized that I’d been wasting so much time being unhappy when I could have made myself better every single day. That’s when I started my YouTube channel, dedicated to plus size fashion, body confidence, curly hair, beauty, and lifestyle :) You can find my videos at: www.youtube.com/user/thewhirlsandcurls
but I also post them on my blog and on my tumblr! This is honestly the most incredible time I’ve had making videos, because they help me understand myself just as much as I hope it will help you :) I'm a firm believer that confidence always fits, no matter what size you are. I'm about to post my personal body confidence story, which this post is a big part of :) You guys were so lovely a few years ago, I’d love to catch up with a few of you!! xx
Being at my heaviest, I can easily say I am more comfortable with my body now than when I was 115 in my early teens.
Being happy with your body has way less to do with how your body looks than you think!
It’s about having a healthy mind.

My name is Katie B. I am 21 years old, I run a feminist fashion blog and I have a lot of hair. I’ve been following this blog for years now and I stand firmly in my belief that representation of all different kinds of bodies is beyond important. How are we meant to feel like our body is legitimate, or real, or good if we aren’t given access to different kinds of bodies?
Where does that leave us?
As far as I go, I can tell you this. I used to be bulimic, I used to struggle with my weight, I used to struggle with my body, I used to struggle with myself. And I still do. Loving your self is a process, and it’s not easy, and that’s what makes it a beautiful, beautiful process. We’re not going to wake up one day with a crispy clear idea of ourselves. And we don’t have to. Self-acceptance is less about telling yourself that you are a special wonderful flower, and more about being okay, and breathing, regardless of what’s in front of you. You will always have your breath,and as long as you breathe, you’re doing well.
I write a bit about body acceptance, curvy butts and’ throwing like a girl’ here in this blog post of mine! Feel free to come say hallo. You are all good, you are all really really good.
My measurements are 37-28-42. I am 5’4. But theres a limit to what this measures and what this means. I can’t measure my accomplishments, breaths and cups of tea with a piece of tape. And neither can you.
Love, Katie. xxx

I’ve been full figured and curvy for all of my adult life. I’ve learned to embrace my body, it is flawed, but that’s ok. Don’t let society’s view morph your self perception - we are all BEAUTIFUL!
