    I love my curves because society tells me not to.

    During my formative years, the media taught me that I don’t deserve to look or feel great in my own skin, that I will never be as beautiful as my thinner friends, that I will only be treated as a bit of comic relief at best, or a highly pathetic character at the worst. I was convinced that I wouldn’t be successful, that I would never find love, all because of my size. I spent seven years at an all girls’ school envying my friends’ slim frames, wishing that I could wear my gym shorts without feeling self-conscious about my thighs, and wishing that I could wear the same lovely outfits they wore when we started Sixth Form. I had difficulty finding clothes that would suit my body and make me feel great at the same time, so I spent the majority of my teenage years wearing huge, shapeless T-shirts and unflattering jeans in an attempt to hide my body.

    However, in the past year that I spent doing an Art Foundation course, I’ve started to appreciate the skin I was born in more – maybe because I met a whole load of new people who seemed to come in all shapes and sizes, and we were all successful at doing what we loved despite our weight etc. I was finally happy. I started taking care of myself. I could spend the whole day walking around the house in my underwear without feeling self-conscious. I finally braved putting on short dresses and shorts in public, and it was incredibly freeing. It was a lovely, huge “fuck you” to society. I finally felt like I didn’t need to change, to conform to society’s frankly bullshit beauty ideals. I can feel great in my own skin, love my curves, show off my fat thighs and not feel bad about my fat arms; all despite what the media tells me. It’s the greatest feeling in the world.

    I love my curves because they make me feel feminine and sexy! Also, the man I love regularly tells me that he loves my curves, so this has helped me come to love them a lot more than I used to! πŸ™‚ xxx

    I love my curves because they’re FABULOUS.
    I can’t say I always have. I used to hate them, because they were just too much. Too excessive. Even the other curvy girls at school had more modest curves, nothing too extreme, but my curves have always had a mind of their own, and have never had any interest in moderation!
    I got my first bra aged nine, the second girl in Year 5 to get them; but I wasn’t just an early developer – I never STOPPED developing! My boobs just kept growing… and growing… and growing… until now I’m a size 38JJ, occasionally a 38K!
    And like you, George, I’ve got quite an arse on me as well!
    When I was in sixth form, our school uniform was as follows: a floor-length black skirt that made you look like a nun (hideously awful); a ‘button-down shirt’; and a black jacket. We could choose our own shirts.
    But here’s the thing: I hadn’t discovered you yet! I didn’t know about BiuBiu or other boob-friendly retailers! No, like everyone else, I went to M&S and similar high street stores. But the rest of the girls didn’t seem to have problems like I did. They just bought shirts in their normal t-shirt size, no problem.
    To find shirts that did up over MY boobs, by contrast, I had two options. Either buy something that fits my waist and doesn’t do up over the boobs, and wear with a camisole to cover excess cleavage; or buy tops that look like you’re wearing a tent.
    Well, I wanted to look vaguely nice, so I bought the tighter ones, and wore camisoles under them every day. I very clearly recollect being told to ‘do my top up’ in a maths lesson, and going bright red as another girl laughingly exclaimed ‘she can’t!’ And she was right, I couldn’t, of course.
    So for a while my curves were embarrassing, not a source of pride. They were just so… much. Other people would wear a dress and look nice, normal, businesslike even. I would put it on and look like I’d been poured into it, cleavage-a-go-go. The exact same dress would look like they were going to the office and I was going to a club.
    But now things are different, for two reasons, both of which have to do with you!
    Firstly, thanks to your help, and to other fatshion blogs, I have learned how to dress myself. I don’t try and dress like girls without curves, I don’t try and replicate outfits that work on people who are flat as a board front and back. I go for what works, and it has been a revelation! So yes, maybe my style isn’t the most up to date, ‘this season’ look, admittedly, but I think it might be something even better – it’s timeless. Because really, how could having fabulous curves and dressing them fabulously well ever actually go out of fashion?
    The other reason is that I learned to love them, no matter what other people think. And that was a bit to do with you too! Curvy ladies being proud of themselves, showing themselves as desirable and beautiful and worthy of admiration no matter what society says, has been so empowering for me.
    So really, ‘why do you love your curves’ is a terrible question. Why WOULDN’T I love my curves??? They’re FANTASTIC.

    I love my curves because hating them left me feeling that I was worthless and didn’t deserve to live. Hating my appearance and wishing I was thin left me suicidal and unable to leave my house for fear of being verbally assaulted about my size. Since I made the decision to love myself more I’ve been happier, I’ve been going out more, and I’m starting to feel like I deserve to be happy.

    I *have* to love my curves because hating them nearly killed me.
