43-35-43 first submission.. learning to love myself.. loving everybodys submissions You are all so beautiful.
I’ve suffered with self harm and hating myself for so long now! Hey curves, hey tummy rolls- I love you and you’re perfect! I recently made this youtube video, it may help some of you ladies- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vl-FNGXMEUk
5’6 & 10Stone.
When I was younger I used to feel way too insecure about my weight, I had thick thighs compared to the other kids and believed I was fat. As I started to get older I realized that being thick wasn’t a bad thing.
Everyone is beautiful in their own way.
I’m 5’4” and 140 lbs. According to the BMI, I am borderline overweight. For a long time, I’ve struggled with low self-confidence and eating disorders; there have been days and months where I’ve been unable to look into a mirror out of self-loathing. I also grew up in a religion that expects women to be modest, beautiful, submissive, and silent. As a chubby, outspoken teenager, I thought I’d never be wanted, by my church or anyone else.
When I got to college, I was recovering from a long struggle with anorexia. There, I fell in love with a man who accepted me for who I was and who helped me to break free of the clutches of religion. I also discovered tumblr, which sounds funny, but which really was a turning point in my life. I found a world outside of religion, where women came in all shapes and sizes, where everyone could speak their mind, and where I could finally fit in.
Thanks for helping me to accept myself, Ladies of Tumblr. You helped me to see a spectrum of humanity that media and religion could never have shown me. You taught me that women are strong, and smart, and crazy, and that no one fits into a single mold. I love you all.
Thanks for giving me the courage to show you who I really am, inside and out. :)
Sometimes when I’m down and I don’t have anyone to talk to I enjoy dressing up.
I’m 26 5’2 & 164
Thanks to Frilly Fusion for all this great info!!
I just thought some of this information might be helpful.
Bra Fit Resources
Bra Calculators are meant to give you a good starting point, you should still try on different band and cups to see what works best. These are the two most accurate I could find.
What do sizes really look like?
Blogs with good information:
VenusianGlow.com All kinds of fitting information. Links to befores and afters.
BrasIhate I’ve linked to her helpful alteration tips.
Butterfly Collection also has an online story for D-K cup sizes.
Invest in Your Chest Bra reviews, will show upcoming styles
Bratabase A database of bras, reviews, and bra measurements so you can determine what size you might want to buy online. Record how your own bra fits and get suggestions from other users.
Small Bust Big Heart (blog)
When adding inches helps:
Small Band Project:
Brands for Full Bust / Plus Size
Cup size is determined by the band. A 36C will have a bigger cup than a 34C. 34C and 36 B will have the same cup volume.
Unfortunately I can’t find a link to an easy guide to how sizing differs between US/UK/Europe/Aus because the systems are such a mess. If anyone has any accurate recommendations, please link and I’ll add.
Where to buy (in progress)
And yes, uncommon bra sizes will cost more, but if you’re savvy you can find them on sale. They’ll earn their value in comfort, looks and longevity.
Once you’re pretty sure of your bra size in a certain brand check ebay for some really good deals.

Sometimes I throw on my vintage old lady, shabby-chic pajamas and I sincerely feel like a 1980’s wet dream.
