I continually hear people talking down about themselves because of their weight, and I have to admit I am one of those people at times. Im a big girl, I know it. But that doesnt mean Im any less that someone within their preferred weight range. And it doesnt mean that I cant be a stunner just like those skinny girls. As inspiration for those of you out there that have some extra meat on your bones, Ive gathered up some of my favorite pictures from around the web of plus sized pin up girls.
This gal looks like shes having so much fun, I instantly fell in love with these pictures. Both of these poses are traditional pin up poses, made absolutely fabulous with her bright red hair and curvy figure.

This photo actually comes from a clothing store and was the reason I bought (okay, my husband bought for me) my vintage re-pop swimsuit. So often when I shop for plus size clothing the model is rail-thin and clearly isnt representing what a plus sized girl would look like in the suit. This isnt the case here and we can all see the suit looks fantastic. Plus, her make-up is simply stunning, dont you think?

These next ladies are modeling clothes from another shop that I love for their use of real plus sized models. These dresses are very different styles but really show how the curvier feminine figure would look in them, and they look perfect.

The versatility of this plus size model is fantastic, but its her Rockabilly style pictures that really grab my attention. Check out her website to see her non-Rockabilly photos.

I found this classic looking pin up on Pinterest, but unfortunately I couldnt find anything more than this single picture. Nevertheless, shes a gorgeous woman who certainly inspires!

Kerosene Deluxe may be my favorite plus sized model. Her photos have that sensual aspect of classic pin up photography with a hint of edge. I love her!

While I want women of all sizes to be celebrated, I want to make it clear that I am not celebrating the poor eating and exercising habits that often contribute to obesity. I have discussed my weight issues with my husband and together we are going to focus on eating better and getting more exercise. However, I do not think that anyone, including myself, should ever feel uncomfortable with their body. We can all have goals that we strive for, but that doesnt mean we cant be happy until we reach that goal. That would be a pretty depressing way to live, in my opinion.
Love yourself and have a wonderful Monday.
