I really love so much writing about the plus size women! One of the biggest reason is because I have many beautiful friends who are not slim, but they live an amazing life, are happy and feel just good in their skin. Plus, they are so confident and gorgeous, that nobody even notices they are overweight. But even if summer is an amazing season, my friends have some issues when the weather gets hotter. First of all they get hotter faster and have issues like thigh chafe. And unfortunately they don’t have as many clothing options from chic brands. But you have of course to help yourself as you can, so here are some advice to better face the heat.
It’s no secret that the cheap polyester, rayon, and viscose that plus-size shoppers are usually offered do not breathe well. These sweat-trapping materials make us hotter, hold terrible smells and stain faster. Instead, reach for natural fabric like cotton or linen.
Find the right shape
When you are overweight you usually try to hide your body. This is the main mistake women do, because they think that wearing a super big dress, with no waist, will make them look thinner. This is false. You have always to show the waist, even if the waist is huge; the secret is to separate the upper and lower part of the body. Use belts, even over long shirts. Sadly, jeans are not your friend during the summer months. And when it comes to most workplaces, neither are jean shorts. If you love dresses and skirts, lean into that, but make sure they are long enough. A smart decision is to wear culottes.
Work on your confidence
Visualize yourself as you want to be, affirm yourself, do one thing that scares you every day, question your inner critic, remember that no one can make you feel inferior without your consent. To establish true self-confidence, we must concentrate on our successes and forget about the failures and the negatives in our lives. Take care of yourself; self-care is never a selfish act. Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life, but define yourself. Try to be happy in your skin as much as you can. Wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are!
