plus size shapes

"Marilyn Monroe was fat/plus size/size whatever"

At 5 foot 5 and a half inches Marilyn’s weight was between 115 and 121 pounds which is approximately 8.2 - 8.7 stone for the majority of her adult life. During her pregnancies her weight changed with her top weight being up to 140 pounds or 10 stone.

What were Marilyn’s measurements? 

Studio Measurements:37-23-36 (inches), 93.9 – 58.4 – 91.4 (centimeters)

Dressmaker Measurements:35-22-35 (inches), 88.9 – 55.8 – 88.9 (centimeters)

This post is literally just to point out that Marilyn was not over weight and was not classed as being plus sized even by today’s standards… I’ve said it once and I will say it again. Be happy and healthy in your own skin.

I would like a ship with a male character from The Vampire Diaries. Sfw or nsfw either is fine. I am female, 6ft tall with a hourglass shape plus sized body with a ton of freckles. I have shoulder length curly blonde hair. I love dogs ( espically my dachshund). Im a coffee addict, i am always reading and i love telling jokes. Im very shy and i dont talk much on meeting someone but i remeber everything they tell me. Im a introvert, unless I've had a few drinks then im extremely flirty.

I ship you with: Alaric Satlzman

Every other man you’d dated was put off about your height; you were 6 feet tall with no shoes on. Normally, that might not be a problem, but you loved your legs, especially how they looked when you wore heels. And that was exactly what Alaric noticed about you first. You were all legs, and a killer hourglass shape that he wanted to explore every inch of.

When you didn’t shy away from the refill he paid for, he strolled over, and sat next to you. The drinks and conversation flowed easily; each of you flirting harder, sidling closer to the other as the night went on.

Alaric was staring shamelessly at your wine-stained lips, going so far as to say how much he’d, “Really like to kiss you.”

With your knee and thigh between his legs, you asked him, “What’s stoppin’ ya?”

“Not a damn thing.”

Body positivity week- today I challenged myself and wore high waisted pants and a loose fitted crop top with a Bralet over my regular bra. It actually made my boobs probably pop out more( oops!) but I felt like a pear-shaped goddess, y'all. Never in my life did I ever see myself being confident enough in my body shape and size to go out in a crop top without a tank under it.
Size 18/20 and starting to *really* love my body for the shape it is. It’s been a 22 yr journey. And everyday is different.


So here’s the thing about Rose Quartz. She is fat. She has fat arms and fat legs, a huge bust, a chubby face, and wide hips. But look at not pregnant Rose.

It’s not that she’s “thin” but she isn’t the “traditional” kind of fat, which is to say, her waistline is smaller than her bust and her hips. She almost certainly has a chubby pudgy tummy under her dress, but she is still an hourglass shape.

honestly draw Rose however you want, but quit harassing people that draw her as the plus sized hourglass she is. Having a prominent stomach isn’t the defining trait of being fat.

On a budget, but want to look on point?
