20 years old. I was told not to wear form fitting dresses like this often but I gave it a try in the fitting room and I actually liked the progress I’m seeing. I’ve been trying to gain weigh for a while and my Mom’s genes are finally kicking in. Slowly I am being more confident with my body shape. (:
There will always be moments in your life when you feel vulnerable, awkward, and insecure. You will find yourself questioning even the littlest things you do. Just remember that your feelings are valid, and you deserve wonderful people and experiences in your life. You deserve to be happy. But try to feed that happiness to others as well. Try to be kind to others.Kindness resonates beyond its receiver. The ripple effect of love is a beautiful thing. I want to inspire others and bring love and acceptance to the world through body positivity. I hope people can grow past the sexualized state of bodies that society has implemented, because I choose when I am being sexual, and now is not the time. So get comfy in your weird, fleshy blanket, and let yourself be warmed by your own body. You are capable of such incredible self love.
(ps: if you reblog this on porn blogs, I’m going to have to summon the goddesses Hera and Athena to come down and break all of your internet devices)
I know pear shaped women should not wear short pants. During vacations though I love to wear short pants, so for me being body positive is running around like that even with my cellulite.

It’s taken many, many years to love my body. I used to cut, and so I didn’t take a picture any lower because of the scars. Learning to love myself and not compare my body to other girl’s bodies took a long time. I don’t think I’m at a place where I love my body all the time, because that’s not even possible, but I love my body so much more than I used to. I think that’s what matters.
