I’m Kitty, a plus size model from the UK - I’m a UK size 12, but unlike most plus size models I’m a total pear shape as opposed to an hourglass.
I’m trying to help represent the plus size women who are also members of the itty bitty titty committee, there aren’t enough of us in the modelling industry!
You can find more stuff from my shoots on my plus size style blog, www.kittyunderhill.blogspot.com. :)
Before a friends party, uk size 14
This is how I do the 4th of July.
23. 5’2”. 160 lbs. US size 12.
bought a new dress and felt like taking some photos, these are the 1st full length pictures ive taken in forever, last time i checked a was about 12-13st and im pushing 6ft height wise :3 size 14-16.
i have felt overweight all my life; i have been on my first diets in primary school with my mom ‘supporting me.’ everyone has always referred to me as ‘chubby’ or ‘curvy’ or ‘a bit more than normal.’ when my man proposed, that weekend my mother said: “oh, perhaps this will finally be some inspiration to lose a little weight!” she smiled — i know she meant in lovingly. since then, several bridal dress sellers have winked at me, commenting: “and we want to hide those little love-handles, don’t we?” or: “well you know, when the day approaches most brides tend to lose some weight — purely out of stress.” i couldn’t believe the shock in their eyes when i replied that i’m a 25-year-old woman, not a girl - i have those curves, and i think it’s time to embrace them, not hide them.
to be honest, i thought that, when the wedding day comes, i’d be either okay with my figure or as skinny as my head wants me to be. but the day is coming closer and this is STILL who i am (5,2 ft / 147 lbs / UK size 14).
i guess i will never lose those curves that people seem to think are a tad too much — this is how i’ve always been. i am now trying to come to loving terms with what i will look like on that important day of my life, because it is just so terribly sad to think that a bride must hate herself so much. by now i have taken hundreds of pictures of me in my dress, alone, just because i have absolutely no feeling for what i truly look like from the outside. today, i literally cannot tell - but i hope that one day i will see myself clearly enough to defend myself and women like me wholeheartedly. part of me deep down knows: we should not have to feel like we need to fit the dress - the dress needs to fit US!!
Wearing a bathing suit on the internet!! Oh no! After eating clean and working out for the past 2 months, i finally built up enough confidence to post this! Hopefully it will inspire others to love their body just like others have done for me :) (pls excuse my messy room)
Weight: 203 lbs

People just love to belittle people like us. Who does not feel hurt after such awful remarks about how we look like? But they miss one teensy bitsy thing about us. We are equally beautiful, regardless all shapes and sizes.Yes im thick skinned. I dont care who ever says im FAT. Cos im pretty! And no one can ever bring me down. As an Asian girl like me, I am known to be obese. But who cares? Im just here to tell you guys, chins up! We are all here for you! Never ever feel that you are alone. We are in this together. Lets show them how beautiful we are and how ugly our society is! ;)

Hello! My name is K and I’m in a very successful recovery from Anorexia. After a long year of therapy and support from the wonderful people at youreatopia.com, I have come to accept my body for what it is. I have bad days but I also have wonderful days when I wear my favourite dress!
When we truly let our bodies become what they are supposed to be, we can be free. I have found that my relationships with everyone have improved and I even enjoy shopping now! I am 5ft 5 and a UK size 14,and I’m proud of it!
It’s so inspiring to see such a wide range of bodies here!
Though even now I have my moments where I’m low about my size the good days are really starting to outweigh the bad. I used to cry almost every night, about being me.. Who knew, growing up, that one of the hardest things would be loving yourself? Shouldn’t that be a given? That’s why I really appreciate this site. It’s really uplifting to see so many beautiful women who know they’re worthy. Something I just started feeling. I just wanted to give a tip to the females who are getting there, it takes time but something that really helped me was getting naked in front of a mirror. It was hard at first but I kept doing it every night. Say only positive things and smile in the mirror every single time. Take it in because that is your body and there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. You are so much more than a number.

I’m 17 and I’ve always been battling with my weight. I’ve always been the ‘bigger friend’ and only recently I’ve learnt that my body is beautiful no matter what and that I should embrace my curves and my bigger bust :) <3
I am a size 14-16 (AUS sizing) and 14DD
Seattle in spring is pretty much like everywhere else in fall - rain and dead stuff. :) At least I can keep wearing my jacket & leggings & sweater dresses! Hashtag silver lining.
