Earlier this month we premiered our July 2013 Curvy Confidence cover image. For the first time in DailyVenusDiva.com history we featured a group (10 to be exact) of plus size women. Each woman represents a different size, hue and personality but the one thing they have in common is confidence!
When asked what Curvy Confidence meant to them, they had different, but equally insightful responses.
Curvy Confidence is an all out celebration of the feminine form, no matter the shape, size, or ethnicity! Our curves should be celebrated daily, and at random. We are WOMEN – unique & magnificent. Our bodies, adhere to any life change we ask it to – expanding, reducing, evolving into its own story. Curvy Confidence IS the telling of said story!
A lot of times I get discriminated against when I audition for certain jobs. “Plus” say too thin “Straight” say to thick but I love my curves. To me having “Curvy Confidence” is being able to own who you are. Whether you’re a 5’5 size 18 or in my case a 6′ size 12. It’s all about being comfortable and absolutely loving the skin that you’re in. For me being Curvy is not a curse it’s a blessing. Long gone are the days that “thin is in”! Oh no honey! a curvy Confident full figured diva is the new black! So no matter if you’re the quirky jeans, tee and blazer chic; the step ford wife in vintage cocktail dress gal; the drop dead gorgeous evening gown wearing queen or the party until you drop freak ’em dress diva, be you! We are all unique fearfully and wonderfully made. So hold your head high in confidence. Own your curves and Strut!
Curvy confidence to me comes from within. Its ok to want to make a few changes about yourself but walk with you head up until then. Remember you are beautiful the way you are and no one is going to love you the way you love yourself. Never compromise always be yourself and be the best you that you can be!
Curvy Confidence (to me) means being comfortable and aware of your individual, imperfect beauty. Its accepting and truly loving yourself according to your own truth…non determined by anyone else. Having the ability to let the light within you shine and radiate warmth on those around you as well. It is love!
Curvy Confidence is a way of life! It’s all about feeling beautiful in the skin you’re in, embracing your flaws and knowing that everyone is different and that is what makes our beauty so unique. No one is prettier or has a better body than you! We are simply different but we would be boring without these differences. God gave me this body and He never makes mistakes! I am Curvy and Confident and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
I am a firm believer that you must work on your inner beauty. Instead of looking in the mirror tearing yourself apart, you must appreciate what you have and that nothing is more sexy than a confident curvy woman. We all come in different shapes and sizes and we are most beautiful when we let our inner light shine and we smile because we are Confident. We should love ourselves more and be more accepting of others. You will pull the spotlight onto yourself and show the world how great you really are, inside and out.
Curvy confidence means loving the skin you are in! Once you accept how amazing you are inside, it radiates through you. You will be amazed at things you can accomplish when you believe in the power you possess. Like I always say, Be Your Own Biggest Fan!
To me, curvy confidence means being comfortable with the body you have. It means rockin’ the same outfit just as good as (or better than) the slimmer girls. It means breaking the idea that “skinny equals happy”. It means loving yourself, having fun and at the right time, not being afraid to show your sassy side.
Curvy confidence To me means being confident in the skin you’re in. I truly believe in taking care of yourself and being healthy but loving my curves. Beauty is not a size, it’s within each of us. It’s how you feel …curves are sexy and no ones curves are the same. Wear them proud and rock your curves!

Curvy Confidence is something that I just learned about myself. It is realizing that I am more than my looks but instead I radiate from within the true beauty that is me housed in a temple that in uniquely made and must be kept healthy…realizing that I am not my size nor my hair nor my skin but I am everything that makes me me. I am curvy confidence!
