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.

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?”
killin’ it in my new swim suit this summer!
Stay foxy, ladies.
