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).
Hey! My name is Eilis, I live in Philadelphia, PA and I’m an 18 year old college student. I’m about 5’3, I’m roughly 180-190 and I’m a size 14-16/38H.
I’ve always been a bit bigger than average; but I’ve also always had an athletic build which made it easier for me to stay in shape. When I was about 13, I started to develop breasts and that made it really hard for me to run and play the sports that I used to (gynmastics, dancing, soccer etc).
By the time I was 16, i had gained about 70+ pounds, and I was a 38G. I was really upset, I didn’t know what to do and it really took a toll on me. I would obsess over everything I ate and limit myself to an unsustainable amount of calories a day. I would try my hardest to work out but it was just so difficult- a lot of my weight was muscle and it was really hard to lose/sports bras only do so much lol.
As I got older, I realized that I needed to focus on being healthy, and not the number on the scale or the number on my jeans. I realized that this is my body type, and that’s something I will have to live with. Why try to change something about yourself when there’s nothing really wrong to begin with? So what if was “plus sized” or whatever you want to call it- I was still the same person.
My boyfriend of 3 years has been by my side the entire time, and he loves every single one of my curves unconditionally- so why shouldn’t I?
I’ve lost a little bit of weight since my initial gain- but I’ve stopped weighing myself altogether. Instead of struggling to be thin, or obsessing over my flaws I am learning to embrace, love and honor every curve on my body- and it’s safe to say I am SO much happier now.
I am Charlotte, and I am from West Sussex, UK. I am 24 years old, and I am a size 18UK and 5,9”. I went to a letter ‘B’ themed party, and decided to go as Bowser, being the geek I am. I have always been conscious of my large thighs and calves but decided to get them out and wear some glossy leggings for one night only!
This is the first time I ever wore a bikini on the beach and I felt amazing! I may not be stick thin, but I can still be the mermaid queen I’ve always wanted to be. I am 5’8”, 220 pounds, size 16 and FIERCE

Hello, my name is Daniela, I have submitted a picture on here before and I felt like I should try again. Only because now that I am growing older I am feeling more confident in how I look. I was always a bit bigger than the rest of my friends and family so I had 0 confidence when it came to how I look.

The only standard of beauty is the standard we create for ourselves. Don’t buy the bullshit that is fed to us in our society. Learn to live above that because you are strong, powerful, smart, gorgeous, and capable. The world needs more of these women.
I’m not sure about my measurements, but I currently weigh 195 pounds..
in jeans I wear a size 14 and sometimes 16.
