Iman McDonnaugh for Malia Mills
5’6 & 10Stone.
When I was younger I used to feel way too insecure about my weight, I had thick thighs compared to the other kids and believed I was fat. As I started to get older I realized that being thick wasn’t a bad thing.
Everyone is beautiful in their own way.
Hi ladies! (and gents) This is me on the best holiday ever. I’m 5’9, 180 pounds, unsure of measurements. You’re all beautiful and very sexy :-) x
Hey y’all! I’m 16, 5 foot, 2 inches and 144 pounds. I have a butt, some big thighs, and little boobs. Though I’m not the “ideal” weight, or I’m not “proportional” I love my body, I love my curves, and for the first time in 16 years, I feel beautiful. And you know what, you are beautiful too.
This blog will inspire you. Thank you Curve Appeal.
I’m 5’4” and 140 lbs. According to the BMI, I am borderline overweight. For a long time, I’ve struggled with low self-confidence and eating disorders; there have been days and months where I’ve been unable to look into a mirror out of self-loathing. I also grew up in a religion that expects women to be modest, beautiful, submissive, and silent. As a chubby, outspoken teenager, I thought I’d never be wanted, by my church or anyone else.
When I got to college, I was recovering from a long struggle with anorexia. There, I fell in love with a man who accepted me for who I was and who helped me to break free of the clutches of religion. I also discovered tumblr, which sounds funny, but which really was a turning point in my life. I found a world outside of religion, where women came in all shapes and sizes, where everyone could speak their mind, and where I could finally fit in.
Thanks for helping me to accept myself, Ladies of Tumblr. You helped me to see a spectrum of humanity that media and religion could never have shown me. You taught me that women are strong, and smart, and crazy, and that no one fits into a single mold. I love you all.
Thanks for giving me the courage to show you who I really am, inside and out. :)
This is my first submission here on Curve Appeal, and I have to say how much I loved this blog and how much it has helped me accept my body. Last year I gained almost 20 pounds ; I freaked out. I lost some of the weight (not exactly through the healthiest means) but I still didn’t lose those last 10 pounds. But at 160, I looked in the mirror and thought I looked great! And that’s when I realised that I‘m more than just a number on the scale. Screw the BMI, I‘m cute as hell!
I bought a swimsuit for the first time in 5-6 years this week. I feel gorgeous. GOD BODY POSITIVITY IS AWESOME. I can’t wait to go swimming and drink a million pitchers of sangria and swing on my hammock reading books this summer, oh my gosh I really can’t wait. Thank you all of you who work toward loving yourself and helping others love themselves too. It’s made all the difference to me.

“You look good, did you loose weight?” I always get asked this question after times where I was sick, stressed, miserabel etc. It’s true that I loose weight when I’m unhappy. And some people might find me more attractive then. And it took me some time to realize, that it’s not a good thing. My body reflects my troubles. And now I’ve come to a point where I’d rather be big and happy then skinny and sad.
