My first year wearing a bikini EVER! Dont be afraid to show your curves ladies!
This is my second submission to Curve Appeal - the last being around two years ago. It’s in the same mirror, I’m the same big-legged gal, but I’m around 20 pounds heavier. I haven’t been feeling myself due to the weight gain (thanks to emotional/bored/oh well, why not eating), so I’m working at getting to 140 again!
Age: 21 Height: 5’3” (and a half) Weight: around 158 Measurements: 38-31-40
20 years old. 5’8, 190 pounds, and a US size 14.
The fact that I’m even willing to admit how much I weigh or what size I wear to the entire internet is baffling to me. But here’s to loving my body no matter what society’s standards of beauty are.
This will be my second submission to this wonderful blog. I love everything it represents and seeing it on my dash always makes me smile.
18 years 5’3.5 155lbs 37-31-42. Today was the first day I decided to appreciate my beautiful body. I struggled with anorexia all throughout high school and dropped to 110lbs last year due to over exercising and eating less than 300cals a day. I looked horrible and sickly and I HATED MY BODY EVEN MORE!! I realized that my weight would never define my happiness and I made the decision to become healthy again. Most people would think gaining an extra 45lbs means failure, but to me 45lbs means living a healthy life. I gave myself the best gift I could ever receive- a second chance at loving myself.
After many years of hating myself and trying to shrink down to nothing, which led to years of eating disorders and struggling, I can finally consider myself recovered. And the crazy thing is, I actually LOVE the way I look now!! I’m still getting used to it, since I have gained a LOT of weight, and while my thighs may rub and have lumps and stretch marks, I actually can look in the mirror and not hate myself. I’m just so proud of who I’ve become, and all I’ve overcome, that I could never hate my body again. I mean, it’s my one and only body! Who cares if its not perfect by societal standards? It’s perfect for me.
5’6, 160 pounds, 38-33-43.
Hey, I’m Jackie.
My measurements are 42-32-45 and I’m perfectly fine with them :)
I think I look good as hell in this dress!
My name is Tessa, and I’ve had body image issues for as long as I can remember. I’ve never really felt comfortable in my own skin, and I finally decided to change that. More and more I’m realizing happiness and beauty isn’t achieved by being skinny or being this or that. Its about accepting yourself, there is only one you and why not flaunt it? If I have enough confidence to chop all my hair off and dye it blue, (currently pink) so why can’t I wear a bikini? Hating yourself doesn’t help anything, and confidence looks good on everyone. And honestly, if the worst thing someone can say about me is I’m big, then I’m doing pretty damn good.
5’11, size 10, 38-34-46 (roughly)
5”11, my measurements are 38-33-44. My body is not perfect but I love it ! I weigh 210lbs and I carry it pretty well !
This is my first ever submission and I am still very surprised at myself for even attempting to. I have always struggled to accept myself, always thinking i’m not good enough. And honestly, it’s an ongoing struggle but there are days that I feel i’m content with who I am and how I look. And that gives me hope that those days will lead me to love myself more.
5’3 and 150lbs
my name is courteney, I am currently 16 and am at a size 16 US. I am in the mid 180’s and am 5’5..
I have some problems with my body image, i use to wear only boys clothes to hide my figure and my chub. Now i have realized how much i love my body with its flaws of beauty. I hope one day i will love my body everyday~ im just sad it took this long. I hope everyone loves their bodies no matter what they look like.
Hey my name is Lea, and all my life i’ve been a curvy girl. Shopping for clothes has always been a struggle, since the normal sizes are usually to small and the plus sizes are usually to big. Somedays I love being curvy and other days I have to learn to love myself.
All my friends are smaller than me, so I though no one could relate.., that is until I discovered this blog. When ever I feel down about myself, this blog brings me right back up.
