This was taken of me dancing on the beach a few weeks ago. I’ve never felt more confident about my body as I have the past couple of weeks. The number on the scale is starting to mean less to me, and the way I feel about myself and my body is becoming more important.

Hi, my name is Helen.
I am 18 years old, I am 5’10”, and I weigh roughly 200lbs.
I’m not entirely sure of my measurements, but I’m a 38DD and my clothing size varies from 14-18.
I’ve struggled with my weight and body image my entire life, and my main issue with my looks was the thought that no guys would like me or that I would never fit anybodies ideals of pretty or sexy.
Now I know that isn’t entirely true, and I’ve come to the realization that I shouldn’t base my body image on what men may think of me.
I’m still not 100% happy with myself, and I don’t know that I’ll ever be, but I’m slowly starting to become more comfortable with myself.
Chin up, ladies. You’re all beautiful, sexy women just how you are.
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! :)
hi yall :) i’ve finally worked up the courage to submit here! it’s tough being surrounded by people who are smaller and more fit than me, but i’ve come to love myself and learned that confidence and acceptance is what makes me beautiful, not my dress size :)

My name is Cheralyn.
I am 22, am 5’9 and weigh 249. I take anywhere from a size 14-18. I have always struggled with accepting my larger figure and muscular arms and legs, but am in the process of making peace with myself and loving the skin I’m in.
I’ve always hated my body. But in this dress, I feel really good <3

Hello! Long time-follower, first time submitter.
I’m 5’7” and used to be a size 14-15US, but now am around an 18.
It’s sometimes difficult to accept that there are no straight lines on this body, but with the help of this website I am coming to not only accept, but embrace that fact :)
5’ 11” 240lbs. Size 18US. 38C.
Never felt comfortable in a bathing suit until I found this one.
It’s okay to not be comfortable with who you are, but with all that you are comes all the greatness that you are and that you should love. Every pound, every inch, every thing you are is beautiful, everything you do it beautiful and accepting your greatness is all that you need to do in order to love yourself and open yourself up to love.
You ARE all beautiful inside and out.
if you want/need to talk I am always here,
Hey, I’m Mary, 21, size 16/18, 1,69 cm and most of the time I’m really insecure about myself. I usually don’t get good feedback from guys..never heard that I’m beautiful how I am or something like this. But yeah…I think shit on it! I like my curves! It’s sexy! And I really wanna thank you for this page! It’s so good to see that there are so much girls like me out there!
Don’t change for someone else, girls, you’re beautiful as you are! Love from germany.

Hello again! I’m Grace, and this is my second submission. This is my dress for tumblr prom. I’m 6’2”, weigh 240 lbs, and I’m a US size 18. My measurements are 40-32-50. The dress came from Marshall’s, the leggings from a shop in Dublin, Ireland (where I currently am getting a Master’s degree) called Penney’s.
