[This post contains a gifted dress]

Although I'm always saying how much I love my curves, it's very much an ongoing process that doesn't end as soon as I say it. I have days where I'll look in the mirror and think "ugh". I'll look at my belly rolls, my cellulite, my chunky thighs, my saggy boobs, or my chubby arms and just think "girl, you're so ugly" – but then I try to snap out of it. I was having a great body image day the other week though.. and I reckon it's all because of this dress..

It's not often I'll throw on a slim fitting calf-length dress and think "you look fit" – but this dress made me feel amazing. 

I'm not a girl that loves having the tops of her arms out, nor am I a girl that feels comfortable with having a visible belly line, but do you know what? There's other things to worry about than whether or not my belly looks chubby or if my arms look flabby.

Sometimes you just have to step even just a millimetre outside of your comfort zone. Sometimes you've just got to be bold, brave and not worry about what other people might think.

This dress and these photos made me feel amazing... they made me feel confident and beautiful... they made me realise that I'm not as hideous as my mind sometimes tells me I am.

My mind can tell me that I look awful, hideous, disgusting, obese, and huge. My mind can tell me I look ugly. And my mind can tell me a lot of other things that are not true too. But after looking at these photos, I realised just how much my mind can lie to me... I don't look obese because although I'm chubby and maybe even a little bit fat, I'm not obese. I don't look huge or disgusting or hideous. I don't look ugly – I look BEAUTIFUL.

I love how my figure looks in this dress... and thanks to this dress and these photos – I have now realised just how amazing I look. Sometimes it can take something as small as a dress to make you shift your perceptions.

Steal Mollie's sunflower Style

I'm wearing the most amazing midi-length dress from SHEIN's Plus collection. As soon as I saw the Plus Wrap Front Sunflower Print Dress I fell in love instantly. I adore sunflowers so much – I even got one tattooed on my arm last year. Sunflowers are the flower of happiness, which is in-keeping with how much this dress makes me feel happy and positive about life itself and of course my curvy figure too.
