not everything is about bodies but if you know you got nice eyes or pretty lips or fine hair or a great butt or cute feet or hot genitals or whatever then don’t be afraid to own that shit bc being confident in yourself is perfectly good and okay. owning how magnificent your body is doesn’t make you conceited or full of it. it makes you a fucking good self-observer. all the features are amazing, don’t be shy in the realisation that your own features fall into that category too.
It’s no coincidence that the blossoming of delight in my own fat body has bloomed since my discovery of the fat positive blogs on tumblr.
I needed to see other humans taking delight in their fat bodies! I needed to see that it’s okay to be proud of your temple! It’s okay to show off your fat!
I wish that I had seen fat bodies represented positively in media a long long time ago. I wouldn’t have had to grow up thinking mine was abnormal and wrong. I wouldn’t have spent 3 decades trying to make my body something it’s not.
To every fat body I see, I thank you for showing up. I thank you for representing.
I adore all of your shapes and sizes! You are beautiful!
today i posed for a drawing I class and some girls stayed late to tell me i had an interesting body to draw. this calls for a one of these.
Another great video making the internet rounds to remind us big girls that we can do whatever the hell we want, we shouldn’t let society dictate what we can and cannot do, and… we is hot as hell ;P
She’s super talented, and athletic— I can’t even imagine how much strength and flexibility one needs to do this. Not to mention, she just exudes sexiness.
I’m starting to think… My next project? Pole dancing?
This is spectacular.

Thanks to the mega babe @mangedebauch for using the #projectbreakingbeauty hashtag to share her image! So inspiring! Going to do a bit of a feature friday today and share a few more of the images from the hashtag instead of just one ♥ ”INSPIRED BY MY GIRL @randomlancila and I think every body posi warrior should post a body posi picture. I’ve been on a long ass journey to self love in terms of my bod- the last parts of my bod to embrace and love where my arms, my stomach and thigh and now I DO LOVE THEM! My body is killer. But we are always growing and learning… I’m currently learning to love and accept my new stretch marks. I’m not even the biggest fierce fat identified babe out there even though I am ranked “obese” in the BMI chart (lol which is a load of assshit and was created by some insurance dude hahaha) and I am constantly asked to lose weight for my health or being given compliments like “your face is so pretty, you just need to lose some weight” or “for a bigger girl, you got the most amazing sass and confidence” lol >my size< >my health< >your business< are three different concepts that do not have ANYTHING to with each other. I love my body and I am my best friend and primary partner. Nothing you ever say will get between our love for each other. So DEAL WITH IT. Take a long, deep breath and stare at my ass for a while. It will be cute. Promise.” #projectbreakingbeauty #bodypositivity #effyourbeautystandards #selfworth #selflove #allinclusivebeauty #beauty #bodypositive #positive #comingsoon #followers #bodypositiveart
Hello Chubby Bunnies!
Size 12 USA
Have been feeling very body positive the past few weeks… Your body is strong and beautiful, love it a little and let yourself be surprised at what it can do. I always am….
“Enjoy your body, use it every way you can…don’t be afraid of it, or what other people think of it, it’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever own.”- From Baz Luhrman’s Everbodys Free ( To wear Sunscreen)
I find it interesting that the photos of me that gather the most attention are those that are taken from “unflattering” angles. I wonder if people are trying to find love for themselves when I flaunt my belly, my hips, my thighs. I wonder when I gave myself permission to do so. Years ago I would have been horrified to post a picture that had not been liquefied or narrowed. Now I am broader, and so are my horizons- my ability to see that a line is not broken because it is thicker.
One of these days I will learn to stop dressing my body like it is an apology, but right now all I know is this: I only feel beautiful when I dance. So I will dance. Unapologetically, unabashedly, until the rest of me catches up with the flight I have started.
This is beautiful.
