Many people make the decision to lose weight when the new year rolls around, but what if you made it a goal to learn to love your body, just the way it is? Sure you have curves, but that’s part of what makes you beautiful. Instead of looking at the negative, focus on the positive, and here are a few tips to show you exactly how you can do just that.
No, we don’t mean to break out your Sunday best, unless of course, you want to! Dressing properly means wearing clothes that fit. Seriously, toss those baggy clothes out the door, donate them if you need to, but get rid of them. They’re a hindrance to your wardrobe and do nothing but hide away your beauty.
Find clothes that fit your shape, no matter what it is and highlight the parts you love. Maybe you have great cleavage that you like to show off, or you have rockin’ shoulders, find clothes aimed at showcasing these assets. Speciality stores such as Perfectly Priscilla boutique have some gorgeous finds that are both trendy and stylish, so you can show off your body, curves and all!
Perfectly Priscilla isn’t about “plus-size” clothing, it’s about embracing who you are, loving your body, and rocking trendy looks that fit like a glove. In 2019, you don’t have to be a size 2 to fit the fashion mould, and this brand has opened the door for women everywhere to find styles that work with their taste in fashion and make them feel their best.
Get Tailored Clothes
Sometimes you just have no luck finding an outfit that fits. When this happens, it may be time to call in a tailor. Sure, it can be a little more expensive, but the end result is high-quality clothing that fits you the way you want it to.
Stock up on the Basics
You know the basics: neutral slacks, blue jeans and white tees that survive the transition between trends. This way you won’t be at a loss for what to wear when the trends inevitably change like they do every season. Find some that hug you in all the right places so you know that you have some great outfits to turn to when nothing else seems to fit. This is, of course, barring that you care about what’s trendy. If you’re comfortable rocking your clothes any time, then don’t let us stop you.
Change Your Mindset
After you’ve changed your wardrobe, it’s time to change your mindset. Yes, it can be difficult, but it’s not impossible. Thinking positive requires a bit of diligence, because all too easily, those negative thoughts slip back in and start taking up real estate in our brains. Start your day off with a compliment to yourself. Maybe your skin is looking fantastic and you’re glowing, or perhaps you rocked a meeting the day before, whatever makes you feel good. Starting the day on a positive note is a mood-lifter that will carry throughout the day.
Curvy has often been associated with being fat, but this is simply not true. Just because you have curves doesn’t mean you’re heavy, and you should do your best to eliminate that mindset. Focus on the positives, such as finding a killer outfit that hugs all the perfect spots, and put those negatives out of your head. Once you’re done, get yourself a makeover and complete your new look!
