Have you ever heard brilliant pieces of advice about how plus-size women shouldn’t wear stripes or experiment with colours? We all have to wonder if we should blindly follow this advice or how we can dress to feel most confident.
It is time for all women to be proud of who they are and focus on being healthy and happy. In order to achieve that, you have to remember that self-love is very important. You don’t need to stare at yourself in the mirror every day but having inner confidence will help you face every day with a positive attitude.
Here is a short guide to what not to do to help you achieve that goal:
Pay too much attention to fashion magazines.
Do you remember Baz Luhrmann’s song called “Everybody’s Free to Wear Sunscreen”? In his list of important things in life he mentions how reading fashion magazines will only make you feel ugly.
If you want to flip through fashion magazines to check the new trends, you definitely can. The problem is when you look at photoshopped models and think they are real people. Suddenly you feel like you’re not pretty enough; it can make you wonder if surgery is the only solution.
It might sound cliché but beauty really does come from within. Push away all self-doubts and let your inner goddess shine!
Hate Your Body
Many of us have this strange attitude towards our bodies. Instead of being grateful for different shapes, we feel ashamed. Society shows us a body model that is considered beautiful and perfect, but do you really want to look like everyone else?
The problem is that you can’t simply say you have an amazing body; you have to really believe it! It doesn’t matter if you don’t have six-pack abs or a gap between your thighs, by choosing the right outfit you can hide any body parts you are not particularly comfortable with.
Wear Clothes that Look Like Potatoes Sacks
If you think that you look better when half of your body is covered, you’re wrong. A feminine outfit that shows a little skin and accentuates your curves can be both sexy and comfortable.
People will always judge and haters will hate. The moment you learn how to ignore their opinion you will feel free to wear anything you want.
You can either be a trendsetter or a follower; the choice is yours. If you’re lacking inspiration, try visiting a plus-size blog and apply the inspiration and ideas to your own wardrobe.
Start a Diet Again
Dieting is exhausting for your body and mind. You always feel like you’re depriving yourself of something delicious. Why would you do it?
The best way to keep your body in shape is to eat well and exercise regularly. Watch your portions and allow yourself to have small treats every now and then. Try this method to get rid of cravings and stabilise the levels of sugar in your body.
If you’re tired of doing what everybody else is telling you to do you maybe it’s time to listen to yourself for a moment. Remember that your friends, family and even the entire society can have different opinions but what really matters is your inner voice.
