There are some women, like Kim Kardashian-West that are the epitome of body confidence - they embrace themselves for who they are and love the shape and size of their bodies. Then there are those of us that let our body hang-ups get the better of us, battering our confidence.
What most of us ladies need to get our heads around is the fact that we are beautiful, regardless of our size and shape. We need to learn to love ourselves for who we are and be proud of ourselves and our bodies. Of course, that’s much easier said than done. However, it is possible; it’s just a case of determining the best methods of giving your self-esteem the boost it needs.
Find your own sense of style
Just because your sister looks good in a certain style of dress, that is not to say that it will suit you. The truth is, we’re all different when it comes to our body shapes and sizes, and we need to cater to our own needs, instead of trying to dress in the same way as others. If you want to feel good about yourself, you need to find your own sense of style and wear what looks good on you. If you don’t have an eye for fashion don’t let that deter you, hire a personal shopper to help you find that perfect look. (Once you’ve found your own sense of style, you will feel much better for it.)
Treat yourself to pretty pieces
Don’t just fill your wardrobe with practical pieces of clothing, add a couple of pretty pieces too. You would be amazed at how much of a boost pretty pieces of clothing or underwear can give your confidence. Your underwear may not be on display but wearing pretty pieces will make you feel good. If you don’t already have pretty underwear, now is the perfect time to invest in some. Go online, have a browse, and find a store that sells underwear and other pretty pieces of clothing that suit your body shape and size. If you have a fuller figure, you may find the range from Tutti Rouge at Knicker Locker worth taking a look at, for instance. You need to find a range of pretty pieces that suit your body size and shape and make you feel good about yourself.
Know what makes you feel good
Every time Kim K steps out of her home, she dresses in a way that makes her feel good, and you should do the same. It’s not just about the clothes that you wear; it’s also about the accessories that you pick out, and also, how you choose to do your hair and makeup. If you want to love your figure, you need to learn to love yourself from tip to toe, so making sure that you are proud of your appearance when you step out of the front door is important. If you step outside knowing that you look good, you will feel good because of it - this is the key to good self-esteem.
If you want to be as confident as Kim K, you need to learn to love yourself for who you are and be proud of your body size and shape.
