Curve Appeal
I wanted to try and show the many facets of being curvy and living a happy and full life;ultimately, just being at PEACE with yourself. I struggled for years, but I’m finally at a good place mentally and physically. I work out, and am focusing on toning up some areas, but am no longer miserable with myself. I found the key was to not focus on the clothing in a smaller size, but on the clothing in the size that flatters my body. It sounds silly, I’m sure, but it changed everything. Don’t buy  size to “motivate” or bribe yourself to fit into it, get the real deal!
I was also told that “California is no place for you, you’re not stick thin, you’re gonna be miserable!” and well, let’s just say they were wrong. I fit in just fine. :)

I was going to wear jeans and t-shirt to my NYE party but instead I wore this top and skater dress with red bow high heels and I’m so glad I did. I felt really confident and had an amazing night :)

My name is Brittany and I’m 23 years old. I’ve always had issues with weight, ever since I was 8. I’ve heard it all, I’ve been bullied. And for the longest time, I hated myself. I had low self-esteem and often believed the things that were told to me. I even dated a guy for almost 2 years, even though he constantly harped on me about my weight, he even once told me that I could only get a guy by my personality, because I had nothing else going for me. 
The thing is, it’s not about how much gravitational pull I have. It’s all about attitude. When I was 17, I decided I had had enough. I was going to change, and I was the only one who could do anything about it. So, I did. Slowly, but surly, I’ve changed the way I think about myself. I go for fashion, I try the latest make-up. I’m sassy and short and adorable. And you know what? It’s okay for me to like myself! It’s okay for me to have self confidence! It’s okay for me to be picky with guys and to be picky with myself! 
Yes, I have off days. No, I will never be the willowy, thin girls that society tells me I should be. I’m tough and a little rough around the edges. I embroider hankies and drink hard cider. I’m a size 16-18 US, weigh 200lbs and am 5’3. Got a problem? Then you can take a flying leap. I’m me, and that’s just fine. And, yes, I’m beautiful, sexy, smart, funny, and just a plain goof. And, one day, I’ll find someone who likes, and maybe loves, me just for that. Because girls like me, we aren’t a dime a dozen, and I’m one in a million. 
Love yourself, girls (and boys!), because if you can’t find love for yourself within, you will never find love for yourself without.

Hello all! :) My name is Halie! I’m almost 19 and I’m about 190 pounds and a size US 16/18. I have always struggled with my self image. Some days are better than others, but it’s always kinda in the back of my mind..”You don’t look like her, Halie..” or “Okay, you’re going to the gym everyday this month.” I have also always struggled with talking to myself in ways that aren’t helping me or building me up. People  I know think that I am one of the most confident people they know, but the self judgement comes in my mind or when I’m alone. I’m 5’9, medium framed, I don’t really have a “thigh gap” or the Barbie figure.. But I’ve never wanted that. I was always the tallest girl in my classes growing up and made fun of because I developed the “Woman Figure” around the age of 11 or 12, when all of my friends were still developing. I have discovered that the “Woman Figure” is to be cherished, respected, and loved. I’m loving my body more and more, day by day. It’s a process to talk better about and to myself, and to see my flaws as beauties, but I’m on my way! Love yourselves, ladies! We’re all in this together! :)

Jessica, age 19, 5 feet tall, size 16 US. I’ve come a long way in terms of accepting my curves and how to dress in such a way that accentuates my best features, but here I am; I have my good days and I have my bad days, but I do the best I can with what I have. :)
