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. (:
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.
• Name: Verena
• Age: 30something
• Height: 165cm / 5,4 ft
• Weight: 60,5 kilos / 132 pounds (I am doing a diet right now so I will hopefully weigh a little less soon). If you want to read more about the diet, there is more on my pear shaped 365 style challenge here.
• Dress size: 4/6
Mod note: We say pear shaped women can wear whatever they want! Go shorts! High, low, whatever! It’s all good.
I started hating my unproportionate body (massive thighs/bum and small chest and all) when I was 13 but what I did not realize at the time is that I was growing up and my body began changing; a totally normal process! After stopping sports due to depression, I decided to join a rugby team 2 years ago and it’s one of the things that helped me regain my self-esteem along the way. I haven’t been in love with my body in the 18 years that I’ve been living on this planet more than I do now. I came a freaking long way and I am proud of my body image, proud of being a pear-shaped girl and you should all be too because you’re all so gorgeous! :)
