I was in my 4th and 5th weddings this past year and one of my biggest insecurities has always been the fear of being labeled as the “fat bridesmaid” 
After a lot of thought (and more untagging of Facebook photos than I care to admit) I finally realized that it doesn’t matter. I am incredibly blessed  to have someone who cares enough about me to include me in one of the most important days of their life. On such a beautiful day, they want to be with the people who make their lives beautiful and how can I take away from that? The day should be no less special because the dress isn’t perfect for my body type. I shouldn’t be insecure about how I look in the dress because bridesmaid sizing is literally the cruelest thing on the face of the Earth and I had to order 6 sizes bigger than my normal size. 
I am loved. I am happy. And that is beautiful.

Hello, my name is Liana and I’m 24. I’ve been following this blog for a while, just never been a member of Tumblr until recently, and decided to share a photo! 
Like many of you, I have gone through long periods of time with not being okay with my body and wishing it would be smaller. I’ve gone through bouts of both bulimia and anorexia. However, I have recovered and am loving my body just the way it is!

First time submitting! i’ve had these curves for a long time (even after becoming a vegetarian). I’ve never aspired to loose them, just tone them up! Love to see my fellow curvy-girls strutting their stuff on this site.

such lovely people on this page, as always <3
appx. size 12 (US) pants, although some 14’s and some 10’s fit. 36 DD bust- not sure of my exact measurements. I have to add that this dress “hugs me in all the right places”, and therefore I love it! find clothes that you feel confident in, and love yourself no matter what!!

My whole life I hated my curvy body and muscular legs. For years I ran, starved, purged and socially isolated myself. I was suffering from a mental illness, but society’s thin-ideal didn’t encourage me to recover.
Today I actually loved my body. I have worked so incredibly hard to get where I am today. I’ve gained 50 lbs since 2008 and I’ve never felt better.
And this outfit rocks. Seven months ago I thought this dress made me look &#8216;fa&#8217;t and I would not wear it. I’ve gained a lot of weight since then, but it still fits, and I LOVE it.
My whole life I have never worn ankle boots as I’ve been afraid of my muscular calves. Well forget that. I want to show off my muscular legs.
Thanks to blogs like Curve Appeal which have been instrumental in keeping me going strong when I have been feeling down on my body.

Hey guys im Chelsee and this was taken a couple of weeks ago when I went to the ballet.  I didnt even want to wear this cause I felt so self conscious. Then, I was like what the hell. We only have one life and I&#8217;d rather spend it loving myself and my curves, instead of being unhappy.
