Even though a lot of people claim that it’s the inner beauty that matters the most, it seems that outer beauty is much more important and talked about these days. Millions of women try really hard to keep up with the current beauty standards at all costs, no matter how much it affects their self esteem. If you want to feel happy with what you’ve got just keep on reading and learn how to embrace your body and be comfortable in your own skin no matter what. Check out our tips and make it happen!

Embrace your body - Be comfortable in your own skin 1

Build your own self-worth

The first and one of the most important steps towards embracing your body and feeling comfortable in your skin is being aware of your self-worth. Even though it sounds quite simple, the fact is that building self-worth takes a lot of time, effort, and goodwill, which means that it’s much more than a trick or a hack. Abraham Lincoln once said that ‘it is difficult to make a man miserable while he feels worthy of himself’, and this is the biggest truth no one could ever deny. Self-worth can be defined as a state that’s a direct measure of how you value and regard yourself in spite of what others may say or do. It can’t change quickly or easily when circumstances and other external factors change, which is why it’s so important to build your self-worth, have unshakable faith in yourself, and feel that you’re worthy of good things. Once you manage to accomplish that, you’ll learn to love your body and be comfortable in your own skin.

Wear top quality underwear – nothing less than that

Even though it may sound a bit silly, you must know that the underwear you choose to wear on a daily basis has a lot to do with your own self-image and the way you perceive yourself. Of course, you should also pick it according to your body shape, as your underwear can also hide some minor flaws and contribute to a flawless silhouette ladies are striving for. You have to be proud of what you have and accept your gorgeous curvy figure. So if you’re a size G, then wear a beautifully designed G cup bra that will not compromise your style or comfort. Every woman in the world is beautiful in her own way – no matter if you’re slim or curvy, short or tall – you must know that you’re gorgeous just as you are.

Needless to say, your underwear should be chosen with extra care, and the first thing you should pay attention to is the fabric your underwear is made of. Organic cotton is undoubtedly among the best fabrics you can opt for, as well as linen and organically grown bamboo. Apart from being high quality, durable, and sustainable, your favourite underwear should also be designed to suit your everyday lifestyle and help you feel as comfortable as possible. Pieces that allow your skin to breathe are exactly what you should look for, so choose quality over quantity and find the best underwear that will suit your body and make you feel comfortable in your own skin!

Loosen up a little bit

You’ve probably already figured out that your body image can be affected by a number of external factors. The sad truth is that this can be a huge problem nowadays, especially for girls and young women who are still insecure about their looks due to unrealistic beauty standards set by the social media and the beauty industry itself. Spending too much time on the Internet means that you’re being told that you should look in a way accepted by the society and the industry, and you know what? You should never let anyone tell you how you should look and what you should wear, so do your best to loosen up a little bit and feel comfortable in your own skin. Do we even have to mention that there are a lot of ladies who tend to wear clothes in the smaller size just because that’s more socially acceptable? If you’re one of them, too, be sure to understand that this can do more harm than good, first of all, because the feeling of constriction will constantly remind you that you aren’t thin enough. Besides that, too small clothes look everything but flattering, so be true to yourself and you’ll see an instant improvement!

As you can tell, there is a plethora of fantastic ways to improve your self-image, embrace your body, and feel happy in your own skin. No one said that it will be a piece of cake, as it can take a lot of time, effort, and goodwill, so all you have to do is to be persistent enough and good things will start coming your way – that’s a promise!
