Before a friends party, uk size 14
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.
Jackie, 20, UK size.. 14 by now, I think.
This used to be a white dress with the skirt down over my knees. And then I dyed it and cut off a good portion, just to show I can show my legs, too.
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!!

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!
My first Selfie! Taken on Xmas Day 2013 using the mirror in my bathroom as I wanted to see how this new dress looked.
So, 38-32-44, 5ft2’ size 12-14 UK 27 Years old.
Never done anything like this before so I thought I would give it a go.
Learning to love my body little by little everyday.

Hiya, I’m Emily. I’m 20, 5’9” and a UK size 14. I’ve always been paranoid about my size, worried that I don’t fit into the “conventional” size 8 but on this night, the night before my cousins wedding, I felt really beautiful & sexy. Although my girlfriend tells me frequently just how beautiful I am to her, it never really sinks in.. But this night it did! I’m slowly learning to love myself and I hope all of you beautiful women can in turn, learn the same too.
Stay beautiful and stay strong.
