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!
Hey ladies! My name is Bethani Rose and I am so eager to submit this. This is probably my 2nd submission, and every single time you guys put my spirit through the roof so thank you so much! People don’t realize how much compliments truly mean to some people :) Any-who, I just finished editing and publishing my blog - www.bethanirose.com and would LOVE if you guys would follow it on blog loving - https://www.bloglovin.com/blog/12845501 - I also have a YouTube channel - www.youtube.com/b3fm1xo - that I started back in May all about beauty, fashion and just a bunch of fun stuff!
My entire life I’ve wanted to be a role model to everyone because I hate how society makes little girls think they need to be small and makes boys think they need to be meat heads. Between stupid disney channel shows talking about girls not eating, the sudden need for a thigh gap and the guys being huge muscle gym rats. Well I don’t think I’ve had a thigh gap since I was 4 or 5 and I’m pretty ok with that. My boyfriend is not a gym rat and I couldn’t be happier, I am so not into huge muscles! I think that everyone is beautiful in their own way and that is why I started my YouTube & blog! I want to teach and show people that society is wrong and beauty & success comes in all shapes and sizes.

This is my first submission here. I’m Amanda. I have dealt with anorexia, BDD, OCD, body dysmorphia, self harm and more in the last 5 years. I’ve come a long, long way and I’m learning to accept my body. I was hoping posting here, where I get so much support would help me! Feel free to message me for support, ever.

I have been a curvy girl all my life. I go through stages with confidence and acceptance and I have good and bad days. I am finding the good days happening more often with the communities out there showing that I’m not alone. That there are beautiful, talented and amazing girls everywhere. This photo catches me on a good day.
Hey, lovely ladies! You all inspire me so much. It’s been a long journey, but I’ve come to love myself as I am with a lot of thanks to the body positivity on tumblr. So I hope I can also help inspire those women still doubting their beauty.
Currently I’m not sure of my weight or measurements (a part of my getting mentally and emotionally healthy), but I know I’m 5’4”, my hips are 50+ inches, and I’m almost certain I’m between 200-220 lbs. I’m a dress size 16/18 (USA).

Hey, I’m Brenda, 22, from Argentina. Sometimes I like myself, so…well, here I am, pink stuff :)
Because even though looking in the mirror is difficult sometimes, you have to take the good days as they come and before you know it, it becomes your extraordinary normal.

My name is Jenna. I’m 21 years old.
I’ve been following this page for a very long time and the inspiration I get from all of the beautiful ladies on here is unbelievable. I posted on here a while back now, when I was a UK size 12 and aged 18/19. Since then, my body has been through so many things and it has altered so much. For the past few years, my body has been a war zone, but I am finally embracing my curves and my larger frame. I went from a UK 12, to a UK 22 and I’ve finally found comfort being a UK 16.
A body doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful. I have stretch marks, I have scars, I have imperfections, but I’ve finally accepted that they’re not negative things. They’re normal, and natural.
Every woman is beautiful. Every body is beautiful. It’s taken me a very long time but I now know that.
