I’m a Brazilian, 22-year old girl who’s trying really hard to be body-positive!
I think I’m a USA size 12/14, but I’m not really sure, since my country does not use the same body measure system. My biggest issues with my figure always have been the small boobs + the fat belly. I kept thinking “I wouldn’t mind my belly if I had a nice cleavage”. Living in a country where everybody seems to like the beach and wearing the smallest bikinis ever made in the universe, the diet culture has always haunted me. I’m really glad I didn’t surrender to all the people (including my family) saying I should go on a diet.
Well, I think I’m finally accepting myself, because some months ago I would NEVER submit a picture like this. But you, Bec, and all of your beautiful army of chubby bunnies, have helped me a lot!
Stay beautiful, bunnies ♥
P.S.: Please forgive me for any grammar mistakes!

First submission, what?! I have been creepin’ on here for a month or so now ;) Anyways, This is the dress I picked out for my prom. I feel so lovely in it :) I am a US 14/16 and this dress is US 12. Good luck to all you plus size girlies looking for your perfect prom dress! #plussizeprom #bodylove
I bought this dress last week or summat but only got round to sewing up the boob/belly area last night (gape fest duh). All primark, eep.
& now I’m here by myself, drinking off my ankle injury & feeling sorry for myself so here’s a selfie in my undergarments.
I have a pear shaped body (small breasts, small waist and wide hips/bum,) and puberty wreaked havoc on my body. My hips got very wide, resulting in lots and lots of fine white or purple lines, dents and bumps all along my lower back, and on the inside of my thighs/bum and on my hips. Today I actually noticed that there are lines on the back of my calves, too.
From a young age I put myself through so much hate. It’s so refreshing to be able to look at myself and feel that my weight, shape, marks, skin colors, and body hair are all what make up something really beautiful. Things I used to hate so much. It kills me to think of 9 year old me hating herself so much to the point of harming her beautiful body, when I was never alone at all. All of these gorgeous bodies and people are a testament to that. Our bodies work for us, not the other way around. To this day I have scars mixed in with my marks as a terrible reminder that I hated myself so much. I’m never going back there. I am so so beautiful.
“Your body is not a temple.
Your body is the house you grew up in.
How dare you try to burn it to the ground.
You are bigger than this.
You are bigger
i’m a chubby princess and i love myself! it’s taken a long time but i’m finally getting there! all you beautiful bunnies have inspired me and helped me to feel confident and proud of my body exactly the way it is, you’re all so lovely! (✿◠‿◠)
