my new dress makes me feel like a Bond girl - happy birthday to me :)
I’ve submitted on here once before, but it’s been about 2 years. I’m still at the weight I was then, give or take a few pounds, but I am so much more confident about my body. It’s taken a shitty relationship, a much needed breakup, and a few stupid guys to make me realize that I have a thick, sexy body, and no one should make me feel less beautiful because I’m not thin (by any means). :) I love who I am, I still want to lose a little weigh, because I’m diabetic and it’d be healthier for me, but I don’t feel the need to be skinny anymore. I just wanna be me! And if that’s chunky, cool beans! That just means that some guy will be so lucky to cuddle alllll this one day. ;)
Love yourself, ladies! I promise it’s such a stress reliever when you’re focused on life, rather than what size you are.
Hello my name is Bethani Rose :) I am 22 year old self taught make-up artist & curvy fashionista. My dream is to be a role model and teach people that just because you are a little bigger, doesn’t mean you need to hide behind layers of clothing & makeup! Curvy is beautiful and I am beyond ready to help teach people to embrace their curves!
I would love if you would please subscribe to my channel & like my videos at www.youtube.com/b3fm1xo
Annnnd I would love if you would check out my curvy fashion blog at www.bethanirose.com (I’m also on bloglovin if you want to follow me on there!)
Hey dolls, I’m Sarah and this is my second submission :) it’s been a few years, but I didn’t forget about you! Guess what happened when I finally found the courage to start wearing crop tops out for drinks? Nothing! I had been so self-conscious to wear what I wanted that I would let just the possibility of others’ having negative opinions make me not wear it. After that, there’s just no going back to the way I used to be: waiting to be happy and letting others control the way I view myself, until I realized that I’d been wasting so much time being unhappy when I could have made myself better every single day. That’s when I started my YouTube channel, dedicated to plus size fashion, body confidence, curly hair, beauty, and lifestyle :) You can find my videos at: www.youtube.com/user/thewhirlsandcurls
but I also post them on my blog and on my tumblr! This is honestly the most incredible time I’ve had making videos, because they help me understand myself just as much as I hope it will help you :) I'm a firm believer that confidence always fits, no matter what size you are. I'm about to post my personal body confidence story, which this post is a big part of :) You guys were so lovely a few years ago, I’d love to catch up with a few of you!! xx
So this is my first submission.
I’ve been in recovery from Bulimia for almost a year now. I can’t say that I am recovered, but things have gotten so much better. For a start I am a part of my own body now.
I was never okay with who I was because my body never looked how I thought it should.
Because of this blog, among other things online but really this has been the absolute best source, I now know that the truth of beauty being more that just one size or shape. All the women on here inspire me to lovingly accept who I am today. Not who I will be later, not who I think I could be, but me, myself, right like it is.
I am 5’4” I weigh about 155 I think
Being at my heaviest, I can easily say I am more comfortable with my body now than when I was 115 in my early teens.
Being happy with your body has way less to do with how your body looks than you think!
It’s about having a healthy mind.
My name is Katie B. I am 21 years old, I run a feminist fashion blog and I have a lot of hair. I’ve been following this blog for years now and I stand firmly in my belief that representation of all different kinds of bodies is beyond important. How are we meant to feel like our body is legitimate, or real, or good if we aren’t given access to different kinds of bodies?
Where does that leave us?
As far as I go, I can tell you this. I used to be bulimic, I used to struggle with my weight, I used to struggle with my body, I used to struggle with myself. And I still do. Loving your self is a process, and it’s not easy, and that’s what makes it a beautiful, beautiful process. We’re not going to wake up one day with a crispy clear idea of ourselves. And we don’t have to. Self-acceptance is less about telling yourself that you are a special wonderful flower, and more about being okay, and breathing, regardless of what’s in front of you. You will always have your breath,and as long as you breathe, you’re doing well.
I write a bit about body acceptance, curvy butts and’ throwing like a girl’ here in this blog post of mine! Feel free to come say hallo. You are all good, you are all really really good.
My measurements are 37-28-42. I am 5’4. But theres a limit to what this measures and what this means. I can’t measure my accomplishments, breaths and cups of tea with a piece of tape. And neither can you.
Love, Katie. xxx
Hello beautifuls. Thanks to all of you for being you. Seeing how beautiful all of you are makes it easier for me to see my own beauty. You all bring some extra sunshine into my life.
Here’s me romping around on a sunny day.

Hey ladies! My name is Bethani Rose and I am so eager to submit this. This is probably my 2nd submission, and every single time you guys put my spirit through the roof so thank you so much! People don’t realize how much compliments truly mean to some people :) Any-who, I just finished editing and publishing my blog - www.bethanirose.com and would LOVE if you guys would follow it on blog loving - https://www.bloglovin.com/blog/12845501 - I also have a YouTube channel - www.youtube.com/b3fm1xo - that I started back in May all about beauty, fashion and just a bunch of fun stuff!
My entire life I’ve wanted to be a role model to everyone because I hate how society makes little girls think they need to be small and makes boys think they need to be meat heads. Between stupid disney channel shows talking about girls not eating, the sudden need for a thigh gap and the guys being huge muscle gym rats. Well I don’t think I’ve had a thigh gap since I was 4 or 5 and I’m pretty ok with that. My boyfriend is not a gym rat and I couldn’t be happier, I am so not into huge muscles! I think that everyone is beautiful in their own way and that is why I started my YouTube & blog! I want to teach and show people that society is wrong and beauty & success comes in all shapes and sizes.
5’1 1/2 & 175lbs - outfit details on my blog
I am going to try to get to 160lbs and tone a little bit! But even doing that.. I am SO happy that at 22, I’m loving & accepting my body as is! Xoxox
This is my first submission here. I’m Amanda. I have dealt with anorexia, BDD, OCD, body dysmorphia, self harm and more in the last 5 years. I’ve come a long, long way and I’m learning to accept my body. I was hoping posting here, where I get so much support would help me! Feel free to message me for support, ever.
Hi, everyone! My name is Brianna :) this is my second submission here! It’s been about a year now since my last photo was posted. Since then, I’m still going to school to be an anesthesiologist! And I’ve gained a little more weight from all of the stress school puts me through (whoops;) ).
All I wanna say is that this blog inspires me everyday to love and work with the curves I have! I just wanna thank all the curvy, sexy women out there for giving me the confidence I have now! All ya’ll are beautiful, inside and out! xoxo.

Hey, lovely ladies! You all inspire me so much. It’s been a long journey, but I’ve come to love myself as I am with a lot of thanks to the body positivity on tumblr. So I hope I can also help inspire those women still doubting their beauty.
Currently I’m not sure of my weight or measurements (a part of my getting mentally and emotionally healthy), but I know I’m 5’4”, my hips are 50+ inches, and I’m almost certain I’m between 200-220 lbs. I’m a dress size 16/18 (USA).
