My boyfriend has always dated small girls. I mean tiny girls. He's 6'1" 185 and his last girlfriend was like 5'2" and size zero. The girl before her was small too. I am 5'10" and 140 lbs, size 8 or sometimes a 10. I know I am not fat at all, but it still makes me insecure. Why the change? Don't guys usually have sort of a "type" and stick with it?

Not all guys.
I dated two women that looked really different. Even with different temperments and ways of handling things.
I suppose that yes, there can be guys who stick with girls that have a similar appearance, but there are guys who don't. I dated a woman of thin to average build, small. I dated a heavy set girl. Neither of which I would have thought as my type physically. But you know what? That didn't really matter, because I enjoyed the aspects of their personalities that they were showing.
There were many aspects that were very different between the two.
So far, he seems to have picked you. And I would assume that you two are fairly happy with each other.
You're different in looks, maybe even a bit in personality. But perhaps if you look closely (and that will probably only happen if you get into a really deep comfortable trusting relationship with him), you will see some similarities.
The point is, you've got to try and forget about these ex's. They're in his past. You're in his present. There had to be (and still has to be) something that is endearing him to you, and that is what matters.
Different can be good. So you're a size 10. Some guys don't like that, some don't mind, and some will love it. The last girl I dated was heavy set. That didn't matter one bit. I never brought it up to her, because it wasn't an issue for me. The personality (both the positives and negatives) were what really mattered in the relationship.0
