42-32-42 - This dress makes me feel incredible.. and so does my daily dose of curveappeal. Thanks crew x
I’ve always been “too” something. Too tall, too pale, too big in some areas, too little in others—well you know what, fuck all of that. I’m 5’11” and I’m proud to be 40-38-45! It’s taken me a while to get there, but I love my figure :)
170 lbs. // 5’9” // 38-31-42
I struggled nearly my entire life with feelings of my body not being good enough, and that there must be something wrong with me. I finally realized that the source of those feelings was my mind being constantly saturated in media, television and magazines mostly, and their idea of perfection. After keeping that kind of stuff out of my life for a while I began to see that I actually like how I look. I may not be perfect, but I’m strong; I might be a little pear-shaped, but I’m tall; My breasts may be a little small, but I really love my shapely bottom. That’s what you have to do ladies—focus on what you like and stop poisoning your mind with constant negative self-talk!! After all, life is too short to be constantly waging a war against your body. You are ALL beautiful, special, and important! xoxo
In this picture, I was wearing everything from forever21…If I could live there I could :P
As for size the top and cardigan are in a 2x, and my shorts are in a 3x. If you have a booty and thighs like me, stick to 3x in forever21 sizing.
If you want to make my day, then follow my tumblr!
I love connecting with people.
Hi Im Jaine! I love my curves and i love this blog!! Hopefully my picture can inspire others just like others have done for me. Life’s too short not to love what you have!

Hi my name Joyce I know I am typing, but for some reason I still feel nervous. I am 5’7 and weigh 93kg. I have always been mocked for my weight and overall appearance and that really used to put me down. Just about a year after seeing my lovely therapist and working on myself I am able to feel comfortable and proud of who I am and what I look like. I’ve recently decided to begin a YouTube channel that promotes body confidence, I’d like to share my stories and perhaps help others along the way.

My lovely sister bought me this dress after I explained that I couldn’t peel myself away from the Banana Republic display. I wore this to a decade themed formal at my university.
When I first saw these photos, I was disgusted—how could I look so fat? But only a few months later and I’m seeing how beautiful I really looked! I was rockin’ that dress and my hair looks AMAZING.
It’s because of this blog and several bloggers on Tumblr that I’ve been able to have such a successful, body positive adventure these past couple of years. I’m no longer afraid to wear things that fit tight to my body, that show off the stretch marks on my breasts, or that displays my chubby thighs (though I have KILLER calves).
Thanks to all the ladies who have submitted to this blog, you are all so beautiful!
Wearing a bathing suit on the internet!! Oh no! After eating clean and working out for the past 2 months, i finally built up enough confidence to post this! Hopefully it will inspire others to love their body just like others have done for me :) (pls excuse my messy room)

Savannah: 19, 5’7½ and about 230lb. Bust- 38 Waist- 36 Hips- 50. I’ve been between dress sizes all of my life, struggling with my weight and appearance for as long as I can remember. Often I’d avoid social outings all together because my distorted body image was holding me back . These days I’m feeling liberated and comfortable in my own skin. For the first time in my life I could care less about what the numbers say because they do not define us. I am happy and seeing beauty everywhere, even in myself. This blog has left a huge mark on me personally, and I would like to thank everyone who has ever contributed to such a body positive zone. Every submission is stunning and continues to be a steady inspiration for ladies of all shapes and sizes. Thank you for sharing your stories and being the light for so many wonderful people who are learning to accept and appreciate themselves. Continue to blossom and be free!
My name is Danielle, my measurements are 38-32-40
I usually wear a size twelve to fourteen.
The dress was a “one size fits all” from pacsun. :]
A few days ago I posted a photo on my blog of my new swimsuit top with the #bodypositive hashtag, and got an awesome response. But then I started thinking about it…I cropped that photo, to put the emphasis on the top itself, but ALSO to hide my midsection, the most insecure part of my body.
I realized then that posting that photo was slightly a sham. If I want to be truly “body positive” then I have to be positive about all aspects of my body, not proud of some parts but ashamed of others. So here is the full photo, me in all my chubby glory.
I still don’t entirely love my body, but I’m getting to a place where I no longer feel I have to hide it, and for me that is a huge change.
