Do you ever feel like because you are plus size or thick you are not beautiful? And cannot be confident about who you are the moment you step in a place full of skinny girls? If you are, come along and take some few tips that can help boost your confidence.
We come in different shapes and sizes, and that’s what makes us unique individuals. Unfortunately, the most common trait of plus size women is lack of confidence. Guess what! Plus size is the new Curvy. Tune your mind that you are beautiful, feel it, act on it, and we will believe it. Here are a few tips on how to rock that body;
1. Believe in yourself
Believe it or not, some people were born confident or have become confident because of their appearance or the environment they were nurtured in. Fortunately, for those of us who find ourselves on the other side of the coin, self-confidence is a quality that can be developed. What you feed your mind determines your appetite and becomes your reality. If you feed it with words of encouragement, it places you in a position to act confidently, and then that becomes your reality. You can start by telling yourself every morning that you are beautiful. Repeating these affirmations everyday will have a fantastic way of making you feel as beautiful just the way you are.
2. Find something you like about your body
I am yet to come across someone who does not like a single thing about themselves. No matter how much our appearance disgusts us, there is always that one thing we like about the way we look. It could be your face, your booty, skin tone, height, or even the shape of your nose. And when you settle on that one thing, make noise about it.
Dress in a way to draw attention to that part you like. It brings out the confidence in you. If you have a big booty, wear that bodycon dress you wanted to wear and forget about your size, if it is your skin tone, some clothes can bring to bear a little skin to boost your confidence, and if it is your tiny cute lips, do well to wear bold lipstick to turn heads intentionally.
3. Wear clothes that make you comfortable and not what’s trending
Dear plus size women, you do not have to follow trends to feel beautiful. If it’s trendy but does not make you feel beautiful or confident, do not fall for it. Most often, we tend to go in for trendy stuff, forgetting our body types and how they make us feel. Always consider your body type and settle on what makes you comfortable. If a flowy dress makes you feel too big and makes you uncomfortable, wear pants if that’s what will make you comfortable and beautiful. Because being comfortable is a profound connection with confidence.
4. Learn to wear heels often
I do not know who invented heels, but all women owe them a lot. They have a way of empowering women a whole lot more than a pep talk. They literally make you speak differently, talk differently and even sit differently. It doesn’t have to be so high or uncomfortable. Do not forget, you must feel comfortable in them, but a little inch wouldn’t hurt a fly.
Remember, beauty comes in different shapes and sizes. All you need to do is to put on a little confidence and brush off the negativity.
