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
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.
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).
Hello curveappeal community! The last time I posted here I received so much love and support that it’s boosted my self esteem! So thank you all oh, so much!
This last weekend I went to the state fair and became a “Moon Princess”. I felt so cute and confident I thought I’d share this photo. Curvy and cute. Just rememeber no matter how curvy or thin you are you can still dress how you want.
Don’t put things off because of how you physically look; maybe you’re not the size you want to be. But if you sit around for to long good times will pass you by.
Like Ferris Bueller always reminds us, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around for a while, you could miss it.”
It’s taken me a long time to love myself in every way, especially my physical self. I have been overweight since puberty and for years, I resented my body for that. I hated it for not being able to lose weight. I grew angry that it wasn’t the same as my petite friends or the supermodels in magazines. However, as I get older I realize that my body is my body, and mine alone. I cannot compare my experiences to others, and I shouldn’t even have to. Quite frankly, I have learned that if I do not like my body as it is now, how will I like it at a smaller size? Of course, health is important and as I make different efforts to lose weight, I try to remember that as the sole reason rather than “looking a certain way”. Loving yourself is the most important lesson you can learn, and while I’m still learning it, I’ve made strides in my studies. Here’s to being happy in my own skin, no matter what size!
It’s taken me 24 years, but I’m finally learning to feel beautiful as a full-figured woman. I’ve been struggling with weight since adolescence; in the 8th grade I topped out at 200lbs. Now, at 24 I am at 165lbs and learning that my reflection is NOT repulsive. That I AM beautiful, desirable,fashionable—whatever adjectives I have denied myself over the years.
Some days are harder than others. There are some days I don’t even want to look at myself in the mirror. But then there are some days where I wake up and say “yeah, I’d do me”. And I’m reminded that self-love is a process. One that we are all worthy of learning. Stay beautiful, y’all. <3

Hey, I’m Brenda, 22, from Argentina. Sometimes I like myself, so…well, here I am, pink stuff :)
I’m Kaya, 5’1, 145lbs. 42-30-42. I can never find clothes that fit me in conventional sizes.
It can be discouraging not to see your body type represented in clothing stores or the media, but don’t let that dampen your spirits. Your measurements (or ability to confirm to societal “norms”) do not define your worth. Every body is different and no two bodies were meant to look the same.
You are beautiful and sexy at every size.
Dress Size: CAN 10
Weight: 151 lbs
Bust: 40 inches
Waist: 30 inches
Hips: 39.5 inches

Love yourself, ladies! You’re beautiful :)
Coming from the figure skating world, where being my size makes you the ‘fat kid’, I’ve always had trouble with my body image. At some point during my skating career I learned to accept and love my body type. It has never held me back from doing what I love, and I look fabulous.
Never let the media ‘norm’ hold you down, and love yourself. Because, as RuPaul says, “If you don’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?”
