My name is Jenna. I’m 21 years old.
I’ve been following this page for a very long time and the inspiration I get from all of the beautiful ladies on here is unbelievable. I posted on here a while back now, when I was a UK size 12 and aged 18/19. Since then, my body has been through so many things and it has altered so much. For the past few years, my body has been a war zone, but I am finally embracing my curves and my larger frame. I went from a UK 12, to a UK 22 and I’ve finally found comfort being a UK 16.
A body doesn’t have to be perfect to be beautiful. I have stretch marks, I have scars, I have imperfections, but I’ve finally accepted that they’re not negative things. They’re normal, and natural.
Every woman is beautiful. Every body is beautiful. It’s taken me a very long time but I now know that.

Went dress shopping with my skinny friends and came home feeling really self conscious so I thought I could use a pick me up :P

This pic is from my wedding day in May. I have always struggled with knowing how beautiful, valued, and wanted I am because I don’t fit the perceived “mold.” But through the support of this tumblr and the people closest to me, I realized that healing starts with how I look at myself. In the months leading up to my wedding, every morning before I took a shower I would stare at myself in the mirror and say, “I am so hot,” instead of all the negative things I used to say. I said it until I started to mean it… and it has changed everything for me.
Thank you to all the beautiful, amazing women who submit here. I am continuously inspired by you.

My name is Devon :)
I’m 16, and weigh a little under 170 pounds. I’m 5”10, and my measurements are 40 32 42, so I’m considered a little overweight, but that’s okay, because I’ve always found people with a little more squish to be some of the best huggers.
Nine years and counting of struggling with eating disorders, has made it very difficult for me to love and appreciate myself and body. I’ve recently learnt to though, now I know I’m beautiful and am looking into modelling very soon.
My measurements are: 41-31-42 and I’m 5’8.5” and no idea of my weight.
(Although this photo is a few months old and I’ve grown since then)
I used to take literally 50+ pictures of myself a day, trying to see if I “looked” like I gained weight. It controlled and was ruining my life. Then I became pregnant with my son. I had no choice but to gain the 40 lbs that I did, and so with that my obsession and fear of gaining weight was overcome. Looking at my son, I’ve realized beauty is more than what a person looks like. It’s who you are. What you do. My son sees me as the most awesome-est woman and person on the face of the planet..not because I can fit a size 10/12…but because I help him, love him, live for him. This photo was last week when I went on vacation. I look at it and think I don’t look horrible, but I do want to lose weight still. But not because I want to LOOK a certain way, but because I want to be healthier. It’s an amazing feeling to see yourself in photos and not want to kill yourself, hide in a closet, have anxiety attacks…but you think, yeah I’m making a weird face, but I’m freaking gorgeous and awesome.
Literally every person on this blog is so beautiful to me. This blog has changed my life, and when I’m feeling down I look at the gorgeous ladies on here and I feel so happy. Life is beautiful. Enjoy it now, not when you’re a certain size or weight.
healthy as hell.
(sorry about the bad quality)
Hey, my name’s Camila. I’m a 15 year old canadian with a little extra weight. All my life, I’ve been trying to cope with the fact that I’m not perfect and that my body is far from looking like those in the magazines. It’s a hard thing to accept, let alone embrace and I look up to all those young girls and women who can be who they are without caring about others’ opinion. I hope someday I and all those girls who fell the same way as me will be able to feel fully confident about our bodies, no matter how much we weigh or how our bodies look.
Height: about 5’10
Weight: about 200 lbs
Hey everyone! My name’s Janelba. I’m 24 years old, I’m 5’6 and weigh about 187 pounds. My measurements are approx 40-34-41, I believe.
I’ve always struggled with my weight but thankfully I’ve never really had body issues. I do have problem areas that I obsess over but as I’ve grown older I’ve learned to love my body and dress it well. I’ve learned to have confidence in myself no matter what.
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
you know the secret to having a bikini body? Putting a bikini on and rocking it, because anyone can be beautiful if they want to be :)
