I think you answered the question for yourself.
You are young. Insecurity doesn't magically vanish when you turn 20. Being confident comes with age and experience.
The very first thing you need to do is stop comparing yourself to other women. This is not a contest. They are not your competition. (In fact, if you start seeing them as your teammates instead of your competition, you will get a lot farther in life...wonderful things will happen, I guarantee it.)
My second piece of advice, and this one took me a long time to figure out, boys like girls who are confident. You aren't a perfect size zero? It does not matter. The attitude is everything. Stand up straight and look people in the eye. If they don't like you, that's their loss.
Think of Christina Hendricks on Mad Men. Is she thin? Heck no! But she walks by and traffic stops. Why? Because she's beautiful, curvy, and confident.
So, practice being confident. Throw the baggy clothes into the nearest trash can. Enjoy your young life. Learn the lessons we all learn with time, but learn them sooner than we did. If you do, you will have a spectacular life.
