this is me being brave... by oomizuao this is me being brave... by oomizuao
...because that right there is my body type.

Or, at least what I think my body looks like (minus the tail and anthro features) if I'm being a little more honest towards myself and not exaggerating it to look even more horrid than it is.
Because I'm not very content with my body. I've always been terribly ashamed of my belly, for instance. And I totally lack the self discipline to do anything about it; I've tried, but so far not much has worked because I give up too fast. :B

But I find it a little sad how I feel the need to be skinny to be able to feel good about myself...
I blame the media :XD: lol
but anyways, in a stupid way I guess I posted this to hear what you guys think? Of this, and of curvy ladies? ^^;

I would not have guessed from the picture you were so uncomfortable with your body!  I'm a believer that everyone has their own beauty, and for that matter, I was busy admiring the pose and slight sass and the awesome shape of the figure you drew XD I don't care if someone is chunky or slim, long as their healthy!  My mom is naturally a larger woman, so are many of the people in my family.  I'm naturally on the skinner side, but with a slighty stocky build because of muscle.

Don't be afraid of who you are; you were very brave to post this, and I applaude you for it :'D

I think this looks great! I know how it feels to be self-conscious about my body. I'm really skinny and I often wish I was... thicker? especially with people putting down skinny girls all the time

But don't worry, some curves never hurt anyone. They look nice :D
I know this sounds cliche, but any body type can be beautiful. The important thing is to be healthy and be happy about your body!

As a woman I've always been envious of other women with that body type.

I'm skinny(i have a petite frame to begin with) and almost always at least 10 pounds underweight. Always have been, and nothing I do helps me to put on weight, which I really need to do. Doesn't help that I have a godspeed metabolism and move nonstop when I'm at work.

Lemme lay it out fo yaz, as a bro and from the perspectivications of a bro: The body presented hence would be the envy of many other fine ladies, and coveted by many a male, mineself included. I cannot stress how much any guy worth the attention would value personality, anyway. Besides; body fat in the clinical sense is natural and necessary, and a few extra pounds of it is actually healthy. Never know when you may fall on hard times or whatever.

But, yeah, I'd totally be checking this girl out as she walked by on the street. Physically, she'd be considered perfect by anyone, including, hopefully, herself.

This isnt a bad body type. It's normal, and beautiful.

Sorry to be so blunt but if you have a healthy bmi there is no reason to be bitching and moaning about weight. I am sick and tired of pretty girls with low self esteems complaining about being 15 pounds above their desired weight. Quit your complaining, if this is what you truly look like than I say you are pretty sexy.

I really think that you'd look gorgeous if this is your bodytype, and I'm not kidding. But maybe that's just me and something about curvy ladies. Anyways, let me go right to the stuff (and I hope that you won't become disgusted or anything):
I just really like the feeling that you something to grab, like literal roughly said: A fuck grip. I really like that about girls. :eager:

I also like that there's just "alittle to some fat", so you don't just look like skin and bones. That can creep me off sometimes.
Also, perfect girls that has a bodytype like a model can just seem "too perfect", and that would make me feel uncomfortable like "wow, look at her. I'm not perfect, I could be better, and I could be socializing better, etc, ...!&#/")(%". :cries:

There, I feel much more on level with girls with bodytypes like this. :)

Now I know that the body doesn't say anything about their personality at all, but I bet it can lead you alittle. :nod:

First off, dear, everyone has a 'tummy.' EVERYONE. Some people are just much better at hiding it. The only people who 'don't' are women so thin they either no longer have their periods due to their BMI dropping too low, or they are 'ectomorph-type' bodies.

You are perfectly normal and beautiful just the way you are. If this is really close to your actual body type, it looks like me when I was in highschool. Rock your hips, dear, they come in handy later!

I think that it is just fiiiine :) Everyone should be as he/she is. No need to work out, loose weight or pretend not to be yourself. Girls are usually actually for boys attractive by their behavior mainly. Maybe yes, well some really extreme super fat girls arent that cute or nice but if you look like this I personally think that this is the best way you can look :) dont feel ashamed of yourself. I for example like girls for what they are, how do I fell when I am with them, if they are themselves and not just person hiding behind some makeup and different crap :) Just be yourself if someone (probbabely your BF mainly and also friends) really likes you, they will stay with you and dont care about how you look :) personally I would be happy to meet person like you, because from everything i think about you, you must be really good person and frieńd :) just doooont worry & beee happy :D

That thar is some terrible (and familiar) posture.... Shaped very much like me... i think..

Personally, i find that i don't like my shape... The shape of my tummy especially, and the thickness of my thighs, especially when i sit down... But what i've never quite gotten is why everyone thinks i'm 'skinny'... Which is more annoying than flattering to me, you know??

Thighs are good. Short of, like, medical obesity, most guys worth the bother couldn't less about thigh thickness or whatever. Pretty is pretty, and niceness plus intelligence are awesome.

Seriously, we menfolk pay about zero attention to that kind of thing.

True beauty lies within the integrity and confidence one ascribes to their appearance, not in appearance itself. By posting this, I see a deficiency in neither of these two aspects, and I congratulate you for following yourself.

I really love this, because you have a great shape, and I'm proud of you for doing this 'cause I know how hard it must have been (since I know you, and I read your description :D). And I know you don't do these things for attention, you're just being true to yourself, but let me tell you as someone who knows quite a bit about women's different body shapes and natural curves (um ... lots of reading and TV lol) you have a great body! Your curves are real, not like when overweight girls claim they have curves (and that's not me being unkind, I mean there are some girls who have curves while being overweight, but there's that and then there are girls who call their excess body fat curves ... yeah, you get me :XD:). Anyway, you have an amazing shape; you're in proportion, nothing's out of place, and at least on this drawing you look happy, so I hope you can find that happiness in real life too :)

Wonderful work, Sis :heart: :hug:

I'm surprised this hasn't become a meme of "Draw your true self" :P

This is very ugly!!!!

..... nah I'm joking xD After reading through so many positive and motivating comments I just had the sudden feeling to give a comment that trolls them a bit. xD
The truth is, I find it beautiful myself. As many others here, I got very similar body type, worse even, I'm gaining weight for 6 years now, without a stop, and 5 kilos a year - and by god I did try my best to avoid it. I'm barely eating compared to others, although I like cooking and enjoing a meal, but I got no appetite anymore. I've never been as healthy and never had so much strength and stamina as I do now, yet I still gain weight and ... volume. I've never quite been able to embrace this fact and it makes me angry more often than not.
But I guess maybe I just got too many skinny friends around me - skinny and eating nothing but junk food all day. When I look at others, I'm never quite as critical. Actually, the most beautiful guy I know has got a big belly and a broad shape - but I'm fascinated by his beautiful face, his high self-respect and his overall harmonious look. And often I see strangers on the street that I find very beautiful - some of them can be called "obese" when looking at the form but they've got just.... the certain something.
So I suppose, what counts for others.... there is no reason why it shouldn't count for anybody. There is more to beauty than just the form of the body.
