There are so many great things about summer. Long days, warm evenings, vacations, beach days, ice cream, and the list goes on. However, one thing that many women may not get so excited about is summer clothing. Bikinis, strappy tops, and shorts may look cute and attractive on models and store mannequins, but the reality is that not all women feel so gorgeous in these flesh-revealing summer outfits. This clothing of the season can leave us feeling insecure and self-conscious, making body confidence this summer a challenge.
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Body confidence: Celebrating every size
All our bodies are beautiful and we should celebrate that beauty, not shy away. Fashion is such a great way to increase your body confidence no matter your shape or size. Here’s how to embrace your body and feel more comfortable in this summer’s threads.
Choose clothes with a great fit
Don’t try to squeeze into clothes, a size too small or hide behind oversized outfits. Finding clothes that fit well, and are made for your specific body shape is going to give a much more flattering look and boost summer body confidence.
Don’t feel the need to wear tight-fitting clothes either. Many tops and dresses offer a looser but still shaping fit. Check out plus-size clothing collections for some stunning options. These styles have been specifically designed to show off women’s figures in the most flattering way possible.
Consider buying a new bra too as the right undergarments can help your clothes look even better on you. Check out this guide for buying a lace bra.
Invest in a killer pair of shoes
We all know a beautiful pair of shoes can make you feel on top of the world. If your body confidence this summer is wavering, treating yourself to some gorgeous summer sandals, wedges or heels might help improve how you feel.
Apart from this, some shoes can even make your legs look slimmer too. Nude pumps and heels such as the selection from JustFab shoes are the go-to styles for creating the illusion of slimmer legs. Ensure you choose the shade that is closest to your skin color to fully enhance that lengthening effect.
Use the right size bag
The bag you carry has more significance than most people think. Your bag needs to be proportioned to your body size. For plus-size women, avoid bags that are too small. In general, your bag should not be smaller than your hand. The safest bet is to opt for a medium-size tote.
It’s all in the detail
Certain detailing and patterns can also affect the look your outfit gives. For instance, T-shirts or tops that have detailing on the bust will draw the eye up, removing attention away from your midsection. This is a good hack if your tummy is not your favorite asset.
A few last words on summer body confidence
Summer is about having fun and feeling free. With these style secrets, low confidence will hold you back no more. Start to feel sexy!
Fashion has evolved so much over the years. Women of all sizes can find a perfect-fitting outfit that embraces their body size because every woman deserves to feel beautiful.
