Being Brave, the First OOTD-This is me

I'va always thought of myself as someone that gets seen as "pretty face, shame about the body". I have a beautiful, slender best friend, a love for reading fashion blogs and magazines full of gorgeous, size 6-10 women, and a fiance who can eat whatever he likes and still keep his six pack. Over time, the huge focus size that is everywhere has really made me feel very conscious about being, what I don't actually think is huge, at a size 16.
So I think the time has come to take control of the insecurities and say to myself, yes, this is me, and whilst I may not look like a swimwear model, I am happy and thats what matters. Part of that process for me is to stop hiding away and start writing OOTD posts here on the blog because I need to stop worrying that strangers will judge me for being me. Haters gonna hate so go ahead :)

  9. You look lovely! Size 16 isn't big at all [I think it's the UK average size actually?] and real women have curves so be proud of them, and of who you are!
    My boyfriend is exactly the same as yours - eats whatever he likes, never gains a pound! I've always been jealous of his flat tum!
    Well done for posting this chick, by the sounds of it it was quite difficult for you - but you don't need to worry at all, you look great the way you are. xxx

  12. The most important thing is that you're satisfied and feel good in your skin, and I can tell you it is obvious. So, who cares what other people think? ;) I think you look lovely!
