Hello! I have submitted here before about a year ago. I have always been heavier and have been extremely self conscious. Recently, due to medication I have been put on, it has caused me to gain a lot of weight. I have been extremely upset and self conscious. As someone with severe depression and anxiety, I obsess over what people think about me among many other things, and considering the medication that caused the weight gain is a medication for my mental illnesses, it was kind of heartbreaking for me and made my self esteem even worse. But you know what? Gaining weight is not the end of the world. Me choosing to go on medication, even with the side effects, to help my depression be under control was the best thing to do for me. So in conclusion…
Hi, my name is Hailey, I weigh 195 lbs., 5’8” tall, 38D, 12/14 pants, and I still look damn fabulous.
25yo, 5’8”, 235 lbs. I was 220 lbs in high school, so fortunately i’m still in the same size. haha! Size L top, 14-16 bottom depending on who made it. Plotting out my outfits for a cruise and loving every minute of it. If you love yourself, that’s really all that matters. Life should never be about seeking the approval of everyone else. ;)
16. 5’9, size 12-14. finally learning to love my body :)
This is my second submission. It’s been a few years but I figured I’d give it a go again. My lovely (and incredibly comfortable) retro swimsuit is from Uniquevintage.com. I’m a 36DDD, size 12-14 depending on the day, and I weigh about 170. During my high school years I was a size 8 and after a few years of my body changing and morphing into what it is now, I feel like I’m finally at peace with it. Embrace the jiggle!
Was having a “feeling great about my body” day! I’ve posted before, love this page so much!
Height: 5’6 (and a half lol), Weight: 180-ish, Pant size: 10-14, Shirts: M or L
Well, I don’t know what to put in here. Well, i love my curves. I like myself so much now. I hated myself before. But I am finally happy with myself and my body.
I am 12/14 size. I am Norwegian, so I use in the Norwegian system 40/42. I am 169 cm, which is quite ok.
So, I’ve followed this blog for a long time. I finally decided to just go for it and submit because I’m tired of being self-conscious and afraid of what others might say. I see girls on here talking about flaws they have and the insecurities they’ve struggled with and I just think they’re CRAZY. Seriously, you all are so gorgeous and freaking smokin’ hot. So, I started wondering if maybe I’m being crazy too and am actually nowhere near as bad as I think!
I’m currently the heaviest I’ve ever been and it’s been really difficult for me to see myself as beautiful with the extra weight. But then I looked back at some old pictures of myself and remembered how even when I was much smaller than I am now, I STILL was unhappy with my body. Then it hit me that accepting your body as beautiful isn’t about a number on the scale (scales have never really been my thing anyway, but you know). Believing that your body is worthy of love and respect is a mindset. It’s a way of life. And it is now that I’m at my heaviest weight that I’m finally understanding that my body is beautiful right now, just the way it is, because it’s mine.
I’m also engaged to my best friend in the universe and he has been so patient and wonderful through all the ups and downs of my battles with insecurity. He has never stopped telling me how gorgeous and sexy I am and how I’m his goddess. Seriously. His constant tenderness and support has gotten me through my worst days and I can’t wait to marry him at year’s end.
Thank you so much for running this blog. It’s helped me realize that I’m not alone.
Size 38 DD. Measurements 43-34-45. 14/16.
Love your body no matter what size and flaunt it!
Everyone on this blog is an inspiration and a gorgeous individual.
I used to get bullied for being podgy when I was young and was called ‘Mr blobby’
All I have to say now to those people is poor you.
In the past, I’ve always been insecure about my body… but now I’m loving who I am more & more each day :D (excuse the ratchet mirror lol)
5’8 size 12/14
Roughly 200lbs give or take a few, and about 5’ 10”, which makes me a 14/16 in most stores. This is the heaviest I’ve ever been, but easily the highest my self confidence and body image has ever been. :)
The shorts are from Walmart, the top is from a thrift store, and the shoes are from JC Penneys.
I’ve been having a rough time lately finding my confidence again, but this dress helped significantly. I may not be a size 2, but I look HOT in this dress. I hope that women of all ages are able to join me on this journey to start to accept and love their bodies for what they are and have been blessed with. You have the power to define society’s standard of “beauty”. DO IT because you are so beautiful, I promise. I’m Margaret, 18 years old, 5 ft 3 inches, size 14, 38DDD, 200 pounds, and adoring my body. You can, too.
