Like many others i somehow can't manage to lose weight, so i figured it would be the best to simply come to terms with my new body.

But how to style yourself when overweight?

I'm not talking about simply squeezing yourself in whatever you want à la tumblr, but how to dress the most flattering to conceal some of your weight, same with other things like hair styles or beauty tips in general.

No. 78115

I guess that for styling, it really depends of what kind of shape you are. Not all fatties are created equal. If you are a pearshaped fatty-chan, you're the luckiest one.

Right now i pretty much look like Gemma Ward's "after"-body.
I'm not extremely overweight, but definitely very much out of shape.
I can no longer dress like normal girls, but most tips i found online are only for a lot heavier girls and i'm somewhat in between, so what could i do? I don't want to only dress in wie stuff like maxi desses to try and hide everything, but i'm also not confident enough to say fuck it and wear crop tops, like often suggested.

My face also looks likes it belongs to a very obese person, it clearly shows that i wasn't born fat, i often see people who weigh a lot more with perfectly slim faces.
No matter what i try to do with my hair it always makes me feel insecure, since i always feel better when hiding my face…

I have a similar body to Iskra Lawrence (although with an a-cup chest and I'm shorter, so no long legs), I guess I'm lucky to be one of the pear shaped ladies. Not even a humblebrag, I'm just grateful.

When I was younger I really wanted to wear oversized sweaters/loose dresses/draping clothes but it made me look enormous because my waist disappeared and my thunder thighs were highlighted. Plus, I had short hair during this time. (I think long hair benefits all chubbier girls, regardless of body shape)

Clothes that highlight the waist are what works for me (like wrap dresses, pencil skirts, shirt dresses with belts, etc.), and I never wear jeans. I find jeans, no matter what, make my legs look monstrous.

And if you can't lose fat because diet, putting on some muscle underneath the fat may improve the look of your body a bit. Plus you'll be powerful AND heavy. Good luck fighting you.

No. 78139

Finding jeans if you're a pear is such a pain in the ass though.
I know a women that has probably the same type as you and she always wears a bit looser blouses and short skirts all year long, so showing off your legs might work be best.

Now that you mention it, it may just be the tops I wore since the last time I wore a lot of jeans I used to pair them with the aforementioned chunky sweaters. And admittedly I had some dysmorphia back then.

No. 78148

I have violin hips too and love handles. But i'm always scared of doing exercises that work on my obliques, since that might gets a more square waist which i obviously don't want, so no idea what to do against that.

I only called it Chubby Thread because it sounds nicer lol
But i get what you mean, my BMI is a bit above 26 which means i can't wear the same stuff as normal/slim girls, but i obviously also still look very different from people who are obese with BMI of over 30 and so i'm not as limited as them.

Chubby farmer here. I’ve spent a lot of my life dealing with EDs (binge eating/bulimia/compulsive fasting), and I’m at a point where I’m working on putting my mental health first. I personally find flattering clothes to be helpful for my mental state. I feel less anxious about my size when I know I look my best for my current size. </blogpost>

I’ve found skater dresses to be the most flattering item for my body type (hourglass/pear). They define my waist but are loose enough to hide my tummy. I usually pair them with black tights. It’s really easy to dress them up or down. In general, I wear a lot of dark colors since they’re slimming as well. I don’t often wear heels since I usually dress pretty casually, but when I do, I find that they elongate my legs and slim them even more when they match my pantyhose or pants. Also, I abuse the shit out of Spanx when need be lmao. Structured items help to make me look less round, so something like a nice cropped blazer with just a bit of shoulder padding helps a lot.

As for hair and makeup, I’m lucky in that I don’t carry really weight on my face. I still contour my face (cheekbones and chin) to appear slimmer, and don’t get haircuts that make my face look any rounder like blunt bangs.

For me it was exactly the same. It's been nearly 10 years since i first starved myself and i spend the last 7 of them with gaining weight, half assed attempts at losing again in the most unhealthiest manners and most importantly simply hating myself. I've neglected myself for so long and always thought losing weight would solve all my probelms (even worse, my mother encouraged that too), but it never worked out and afterall i cant spend my whole life thinking "if i lose weight, then i'll be happy".

I think that the girl you posted looks super cute, but i can't help but feel that wearing such dresses makes you simply look like what you are, an overweight person trying to hide their fat and makes you stand out even more, especially in comparison to your average college girl that just wears some tight jean shorts in summer…

If you're fat you should go on a week-long fast. It may or may not be the best way to lose weight in the long term but it's effective as fuck as a wake up call. You'll lose around 1kg a day depending on your initial weight.

I'm not sure why so many chubby women are upset when men have a thing for us, it's good when your partner finds you attractive! Especially if it's something you don't plan on changing.

But I also have a thing for very thin (and usually short) men, so perhaps it's just fine for me because I can relate. Also, lucky for me it seems sticc boys do seem to end up with girls my size from what I've seen irl.

Back on topic— Tbh, you gotta look for somone that has vaguely the same shape as you and take notes. Generally though, high waist pants/dressy leggings are nice cool because they do double the work as fashion and control top to give you a little more form/shape/keep all the jiggly bits in place, bangs seem to be good because you get more power to control the frame of your face and highlight the good,my personal opinion is that long hair on bigger girls looks gross (Myself included, I can never go past shoulder length) rather than like some renaissance full figure moon goddess a lot of girls seem to kid themselves into thinking they look like, if you're extreme enough you can also contour any extra chins with makeup to minimize them, flared skirt dresses are kind to most chubby girls, the faux thigh high stockings have been a LIFE SAVER because I love thigh highs but dotn always want to wear garters or have them roll down on account of chub rub, and finally, I think that excessive belting of outfits can be a hit or miss. Sometimes it genuinely improves an outfit, sometimes it just makes you look even chunkier and messy.

No. 88676

>I struggled with anorexia for years, so it's not like I lack discipline

Anorexia has nothing to do with discipline. Starving yourself because you think you're fat when you aren't or because you don't want curves is because of a mental issue, not a discipline issue. Discipline is doing something difficult, tedious or time consuming (or in the case of major life changes, take a long time and lots of effort to stick to) despite not wanting to, or feeling like theres no point or payoff.

I'll say it again: if you want to lose weight, put less food in your mouth hole, get on your feet and move/sweat more often. There is no magic, no trick to losing weight. You get chubby/fat by developing bad eating habits and a sedentary lifestyle that you dont want to change because it might burst your familiar comfort bubble. Stop eating junk, and stop lying to yourself and others that you're too busy with work or school to eat better or move more. If you have time to browse lolcow, you have time to go for a brisk walk or do some basic in-place exercises in your room. As for food, it's more expensive in the long run to buy nutritionally bland convenience junk than it is to buy fruits, veggies and staples like rice, eggs, milk, and chicken. Lear some basic broke-ass college student recipes and make your own food, and if you truly don't have time for that, rhen just buy healthier snacks. Fruit cups, those cheese/nut/meat protein packs, a yogurt smoothie. And above all stop esting to get full- you don't need to feel full every time you eat, just eat until you aren't hungry anymore and can easily focus on something else. This can help you avoid comfort eating.

it definitely depends a bit on how your weight is distributed. if you're built like a fridge, you're always going to look fatter than a girl of the same weight with better proportions.

and i have no idea what it's like in other places so i'm not speaking for the entirety of the world but where i live the cutoff for being considered fat is around 120-130 lbs, unless you're tall.

She (and you as well) just come across as incredibly condescending.

But no, instead she had to jump in and tell her once again that anon is just lazy and lacks discipline. "Just eat less, healthy and move more" isn't any groundbreaking advice, I'm sure that somebody who had an ED already knows everything about calories and nutrition anyways.

it's subjective really. there's always going to be someone who's going to say "what?! you're not chubby/fat!" and there's always going to be someone who thinks you are. and you're right, your body distribution is a big part of it. you can look skinnyfat while someone else with your same bf% and bmi looks chubby. i've known some people who are technically overweight but largely read as skinnyfat because it's all in one area they can hide, and other people who have normal bmis but it goes to their face and arms immediately so they read as chubby.

I am not overweight but on the border of a healthy BMI (24). I have really big hip dips and I hate it. I always wear skater dresses or flared skirt with a tee. I don't wear a lot of pant anymore but when I do it are always skinny jeans so my hips will be contained.

When I do wear dresses or skirts I always pair them with leggings or thighs. But now that it's summer I recommend safety shorts! My thighs never hurt when I wear these. The biggest issue is finding one that don't ride up and that are also not too long they stick out under the skirt or dress. The ones I buy are usually from aliexpress or wish so it's a hit or miss.

The only time sweats are fashionable is when the girl's body is making it look so tbh. They're athletic wear, if you're not athletic they do look frumpy.

No. 89639

I think the biggest tip I can give is being realistic about your size. Squeezing into something too small because you don't like the idea of being a large will always look terribly unflattering. I'm lucky to have good fat distribution (pear shaped) so I can wear most things skinny girls wear and still look alright, though I hate my legs and always cover them with something. I prefer clothing with nipped in waists, since that's my best feature, and high heels because I have long legs and making them look even longer with heels helps my size look a bit more proportionate. For reference I'm 5'7" and about 160-165 ish, wear a US 8-10.
Otherwise good skincare and a flattering, longer haircut that visually lengthens your face are good. And flowing clothing always seem to make me look enormous because it just drops off my tits.

The lightest I've ever been was 135 and my face looked gaunt and ugly. I'd quite like to be /fit/ and around 145, since I enjoy looking a little soft and fluffy. I'm taking regular 40 min walks up and down hills to my college classes atm to help start toning up and slimming a little. I miss not being insecure about the size of my arms as well as my legs.

No. 89671

Great advice anon, but I'd also like to add that overestimating your size isn't a good idea either. I think a lot of chubby girls fall into that trap of wanting to wear oversized clothing in the hopes of making themselves appear smaller. All it does is give you an unflattering shape though. It's best to find something that's in your actual size.

well, a few things to consider are the kind of work and what will you be wearing on top? if it can conceal your hip dips that'll help a little. a nice pair of tailored, tapered work trousers will accommodate the shape of your legs and with a pair of heels, the extra height will help to balance out your size. If heels aren't an option then higher waist, structured pants with a straight leg will give them some length too.

Don't fucking fast. I've done it twice and it had no permanent weight loss. The only way to lose weight is to slightly cut your daily calories, and then eat that same calorie amount every day forever. You can eat whatever you want within that calorie limit. It should be ideally around 1200 a day unless you're very short where you may be able to do 1000. Less than 800 will send your body into starvation mode

No. 89857

I'm not that anon but I often do fasting that goes from between 3 - 7 dats.
The reason I commit to fasting is not due to weightloss but because I feel better.

I wouldn't recommend anyone to do week fastings, perhaps a consultation with a doctor beforehand, however a week of fasting isn't necessarily going to harm the person.

In fact, I think that people should learn that they don't have to eat a lot, they don't even need to eat 3 meals per day unless they're going to work a physically intensive labor.

I'd also add I never had drastic weight gain or problems with weight. It could be just me…

Ok, sorry. I just saw the discussion and wanted to add my 2 cents.

No. 89895

Saw this thread and wanted to contribute! Before I start, I do have a bias toward business casual fashion so I'm sorry if that's not your thing. Maybe this will be unhelpful or something you've heard a million times but the best tip to looking good while being chubby or plus size is being aware of your body shape, being aware of your size, and buying clothes that FIT.

The one thing I see among chubby girls (I even did this at one point) that is the least flattering is clothes so tight they look like they're gonna burst at the seams, all because they can't accept the fact they're not a size M or L. There is nothing wrong with being an XL, or even XXL for that matter. Accept it and dress your size. You will look 10x thinner if you're a XL wearing an XL than being an XL wearing a M.

You shouldn't have to spend 20 minutes putting on jeans. You shouldn't have a problem with your shirt getting over your belly. Your clothes should fit comfortable.

Another thing that is my holy grail as a chubby girls is spanx and things like it. A common mistake when buying spanx is getting a smaller size so it holds in more. DO NOT DO THIS.You WILL have a bad time.

Fabrics you should avoid at ALL costs is thin tight fabrics especially on the legs. It can be alright on your top half sometimes. They expose all your cellulite and rolls and it's just not a look.

Dressing to flatter yourself as a chubby girls still depends on body type though. Ofc the most flattering is dresses that cinch the waist and flare out, which looks good on pretty much any chubby girl. But as for everything else:

Chubby body types:

Pear (large bottom half, small upper half): For pear shapes, you should go for something to slim your bottom half, so compression leggings (because thin ones show cellulite and it's not cute) are really good. Fitted slacks are a more dressy option. Things like pencil skirts can also look cute. I reccomend most of the stuff you wear on your lower half to be dark colors because they're slimming. On your top, stuff like cardigans, blazers, sweaters, etc can be cute and make your top half look more proportionate. Also, loose tops are cute.

Ideal outfit for this body type: A blazer with a not fitted (but not baggy) button down underneath, paired with fitted slacks.

Apple (small bottom half, large top half): The most flattering things are skirts that flare out. Long flared skirts that are made of a stiff fabric (so they hold their shape)are defintely a look. Straight leg pants and slacks are flattering. For your top half, simple stuff like stretchy (mock) turtlenecks, fitted button downs, t shirts, long sleeve shirts, etc. You don't wanna draw attention so avoid jackets if you can.

Ideal outfit for this body type: A fitted button down tucked into a flared knee length skirt

Hourglass (large bottom half, small waist, proportionate bottom half): really, a lot of things will look good on this body type. If you wear something that draws attention to your top half, wear something that equally draws attention to your bottom half (don't wear a blazer with a pair of skinny jeans for example).

Ideal outfit for this body type: Open Cardigan with fitted V-neck shirt, paired with high rise slacks

Column (straight figure with little shape): Making the waist appear smaller is key. Waist cincing skirts, dresses, and pants are flattering. Something like tying your shirt at your waist is cute. High waisted anything is flattering. Belts also bring attention to the waist and make it appear smaller.

Ideal outfit for this body type: Open jacket with button down tuck into a pair of high waisted pants, paired with a snazzy belt.

If this is recieved well, I could write another whole essay on hair and beauty stuff. Sorry again if I wrote too much

hope this doesnt sound too rude or like i hate fatties because as long as they arent those bitter ones who act superior i really dont care or judge them for their weight. i just want to understand better this mentality of caring about fashion while 'chubby'
i understand a lot of overweight people believe they cant lose weight/its too hard and maybe in some cases slightly overweight is just natural for you just like slightly underweight is natural for many. but more than slightly overweight is laziness, mental illness, gluttony, health problems, etc.
why not work towards a genuinely attractive body? even if you cant stop eating at least maybe stop long enough to go to the gym often and make yourself an attractive form of thick. if you could be thin enough you wouldnt need fashion/makeup just to not look ugly, thin girls can look cute without effort if their face isnt deformed

Some may just like fashion, not for presentation's sake but for the fun of it. Or if it is for presentation, it may make them feel less insecure about their laziness in one aspect if they look less lazy in another.

For me it's a mix of both. I'm trying to lose a bit of weight now (I'm a little smaller than Ashley) by lifting 3x a week and have cut 500calories from my usual diet, but still want to wear nice clothes while doing it. And when I'm thinner I'll still want to e regularly fashionable. It's just enjoyable.

No. 90100

that actually makes more sense to me now, thanks
i just thought especially about shopping for clothes and spending lots of money while really big, if you got thinner it would look better but you wouldnt fit your old clothes, etc
nothing compared to actual chubby girls but i gained a bit of weight one year and bought lots of new skirts to comfort myself, i have to safety pin them all the time now.

>hope this doesnt sound too rude or like i hate fatties because as long as they arent those bitter ones who act superior i really dont care or judge them for their weight.
The fact that you had to write "fatties" and add a "as long as they…" makes me doubt that…

As for your question, I had an ED for so long that whenever I try to eat just a little less/healthier I immediately revert back to my old sick habits and overdo it. And I never want to have to relive that period of my life again.

No. 90104

people generally call fat people that and dislike the Kelly Jean Drinkwater types. i dont see any reason to sugarcoat stuff on an anon site

i have also struggled with an ED in the past and ED behaviors since then so i do understand at least a bit. i especially know what its like to binge eat because i went through a period of that, but after the first 5 pounds were gained i was so determined to not get average/chubby that i stayed out of the house almost all day exercising as much as i could and made sure my parents stopped buying any of my junk food, so i didnt gain much in the end despite eating every second i could. i guess because of that is why i feel like its possible for anyone to not just eat and eat even though its so fucking hard its not even close to impossible for anyone. there's surgical options, therapy to help with ED habits, and you can even just stop buying unhealthy foods and try to get yourself to prefer healthier foods so thats what youre constantly eating without thinking about it much. smoothies are the shit and you can put in some unhealthy ingredients to make them taste better and its still infinitely better than fast food or whatever

It’s also about feeling good about yourself. I lost 40lbs recently and even though I’m still fat and losing weight none of my clothes fit anymore and I can’t stand to look at myself in the mirror and if I have to buy clothes that won’t fall off I might as well buy nice looking ones?

No. 90110

Because I’m chubby unless I get spoopy skinny. And I don’t have the genetics to get a sexy thick even with rigorous exercise. But I still deserve to feel like a human being, and clothing makes me happy. I only have one life and I’m trying my hardest to live it, and not waste it hating myself. I want to feel cute, even just a little bit. I know my clothes would look better if I was thinner, I’d be hotter and more liked by men if I was thinner. I just accept it and move it.

No. 92033

You should really take this to one of the weight loss threads. You can try to tighten up the muscles in that area but spot reduction really is a myth. Sound like you're probably an apple shape, the worst shape to be as a chub. I know because I'm also an apple.

If you really want to get rid of stomach fat get /fit/ and any leftover fat can be lipoed out.

No. 92052

it is true. you can only do things to reduce your overall bodyfat. but the good news is, if your tummy is the place you have the most fat, it might be the first place you lose fat. you can do ab exercises to strengthen your abs, but again, this won't actually cause you to lose fat there more than anything else.

i really like lifting weights for muscle growth to increase my metabolism for fat loss, but if that's not your thing, really anything that gets your heart rate in your target range for 20+ minutes will increase your metabolism if you do it regularly, and thus reduce bodyfat. i bought a fitbit knockoff and i'm lazy so sometimes i walk/run where i'll run for as long as i can stand and then walk until my heart rate starts to go down again, then run again, and my heart rate stays in optimal range.

No. 92059

There is no way except for having it removed surgically. I am around 14% bodyfat, 19.5 BMI, and I still have a noticeable stomach despite bones sticking out in certain places… Ab exercises don't get rid of it, but at least for me it made my stomach look better. It makes the muscles underneath more visible and can make your stomach look more firm instead of flabby.

No. 92063

actually new science is coming out about possibly being able to, it's just a slow slow process that involves almost constant working out in that area. i will look up the article but apparently new science shows that muscle uses fat for energy and the body uses the fat near that particular muscle/muscle group first. so you may lose more fat in areas you work out constantly than others.

You missed my point. The point of a week-long fasting isn't for weight loss in and of itself, rather to you rid yourself of the idea that something about your body is preventing you from losing weight which so many overweight people tend to have. It's specifically intended for people have trouble losing weight "normally" – who think they're eating correctly and the problem lies with their metabolism or something. It's NOT intended for people who are already sucessful losing weight on a normal diet.(derailing)

no. you've got it backwards. eating at a reasonable frequency and not agonizing over your weight is the default. obsessing over being a very specific weight beyond what's healthy for you is unnecessary work and energy. society does have unreasonable expectations for womens looks but you've conflated soecietal expectations with your own neurosis. you've externalized your self control and convinced yourself that you're "weaker" than normal people so you'll never be healthy like them. completely false.

samefag but you're also conflating having a normal attitude towards weight with being extremely confident and accepting of yourself. this is a false dichotomy and another way that you're trying to convince yourself that you have no other choice.

Retro style is pretty forgiving for fatties. 40's and 50's stuff is usually quite feminine, and even if you're fat it still looks good to be put-together. Take care of yourself with other stuff, healthy hair and skin, clean and neat clothing, and maybe even being a nice person. I'm always surprised when a person who isn't conventionally beautiful is glamorous due to their styling and how they carry themselves. All that said, working on living a healthier lifestyle is cool too because you're setting a goal to do better for yourself.

I'm 5'0" and 150 lbs, but I'm working on it. In the meantime, I feel a lot better when I wear flattering clothes like wrap shirts and flared skirts or a nice blouse with a pencil skirt. If I wear sweats, I'll feel like garbage because I look like garbage. Putting something neat on and styling myself makes me a sack of fat that's trying. I'm not saying you should be complacent.

If you say someone is just fat, usually it means they just look fat, nothing went to the right places.

I'm not even fat and this is just a driveby comment but you're making obvious false equivalences. Being a bit overweight (or underweight) isn't ideal or healthy, but it's not as inherently, overtly harmful as self harm or full blown eating disorders.

And it's just plain nasty and wrong to say 'you're not cute so don't even try'. Should ugly people not bother trying to dress nicely either? Or people with deformities? Old people? None of those things are biologically designed to be attractive. Fashion is not that unforgiving, people can dress in ways that do make a less than perfect body look more flattered and it's absurd to just give up because being overweight isn't attractive. A fat person is fat whether they dress in conventionally cute outfits or live in sweatpants, there's no reason to dress frumpy and make themselves look even worse if they don't want to.

Same. I'm not drastically underweight or anything, but it seriously feels like I carry all of my weight in my face. The only time in my life this wasn't the case was when I went paleo for about five months and had virtually no body fat, but I looked super unhealthy at that point and wouldn't go back to it.

I've accepted my cheeks at this point. What bothers me is that I've got a slight double chin despite being fairly thin otherwise.

I'm 5'9" and I believe I'm somewhere between inverted triangle and hourglass (though it's hard to tell what my bones actually look like because I've basically been kinda chubby ever since hitting puberty rip) with really defined hip dips. I find that jumpsuits with tie waists look really flattering on me, since I can nip things in a little. I also like anything with a bardot neckline, I think they look really feminine and pretty on plus size ladies. Maybe they create the illusion of a smaller neck or waist?

Pic is of Stefania Ferrario, a plus size model. And also my body goals, to be honest.

You might have an underdeveloped jaw. I am 5'8 and 126lbs and still have a little double chin. The reason? Small lower jaw. I have a big overbite and was offered surgery to fix it. I used to be really self conscious of it but I don't see the point in having my lower face smashed to bits, pulled forward and my mouth wired shut for weeks just to get rid of a tiny bump of fat/skin.

I had braces as a teen/young adult and being a ukfag, dentistry in that time wasn't great so I wasn't told to keep my retainer on. My ortho said 6 months, and surprise surprise, my teeth all moved. I went to a private dental clinic a few years back and the doc said I'd need invasive jaw surgery and 24 months of braces. I kinda wanna look into it again but she put me off. She treated me like a sideshow freak, which is surprising as my jaw is very sharp looking and defined, other than the slight softness towards my neck. Maybe one day.

A little bit. Black looks slimmer/smaller than white, it's an optical illusion. Plus it's harder to see the roundness of a belly from the front because depth is difficult to see on black. But a fat body is still going to look fat is a black dress.

They're still going to look obviously wide and therefore fat. Like if you put an equally oversized black dress on a fat woman and a skinny woman, it's going to be obvious one of them is skinny and one is not, even if the dress hides most bodycontours.

Ayrt, in my post I meant overweight and obese by BMI. That BMI chart in your pic is delusional.

No. 172418

BMI are a suggest count. The best way to understand if you are fat vs chubby is to honestly see how your family is in terms of health history and also body types not to mention always talk to a doctor. Sometimes if you struggle to lose weight you might have a serious health issue that has yet to surface. It is also highly important too to consider you also might not be eating the right diet for you. This means that sometimes the diets that are deemed healthy are not one fit all, it's why you go to people who are trained in dietary area of health for advice than some youtuber.

In terms of styling you want to avoid things that show emphasis on the stomach and upper thigh area. So knee skirts and jackets that are long are going to make you look great. Avoid tucking in your shirt and wearing pencil skirts. You want a skirt to fare out not show off that muffin top(if you have one, people gain weight in different areas).

Higher end of healthy BMI is chubby

I've calculated some people's BMI in the dedicated weight loss thread, the results are conflicting, some look better, others look worse even if the numbers are close to each other

No. 172430

body shape is a big part of this. women who gain weight in their stomach will look fatter than those who gain in their butt/hips/thighs. there was just a study published where people were presented silhouettes of women at roughly the same BMI but with different weight distributions, and the thick middle women were always rated more harshly than the thick bottoms women. it makes sense evolutionarily because the tendency to gain around the stomach = low estrogen/progesterone = low fertility

Nta, but for me personally the face trade-off when losing weight isn't worth it for me. I've yo-yo'd all over the place and I gotta say my face after losing weight easily ages me by like 10 years.

No. 179489

Google "body neutrality". Basically the idea is that instead of body positivity (everyone is beautiful and desirable just the way they are!!!!) you should focus on feeling neutral about your body. Your body walks around and does shit and enables you to live in the physical world, it doesn't need to be conventionally sexy it just needs to function. Some people are gonna think you're fugly for being chubby but it doesn't matter, unless you're a model or actress it's not your job to be hot.
