Fashion plays a huge role in our daily lives, even if we aren’t thinking consciously about it. Whether we’re working, relaxing, or spending time with our loved ones. For many of us, clothing becomes a looming decision. An endless cycle of “what am I going to wear?”. For most of us, the choice is dominated by one crucial question. “Am I going to feel confident in this?”
There are many ways that fashion can affect our confidence. It’s a mode of self-expression, after all, and it’s often the first thing people notice about us. But its impact reaches beyond how it looks, and what’s more important is how it makes us feel.
Dressing comfortably is the best way to nurture your confidence.
That’s right. Comfort really is key. In fact, it can go as far as to affect our productivity. According to one study, uncomfortable clothing leads to distraction and increased cognitive load. In short, being uncomfortable makes you lose focus. This impacts your confidence.
So what does comfort mean? One way to ensure maximum confidence is wearing clothes that suit your shape. Getting familiar with your body silhouette is a great way to maximise your confidence, helping you pick the right styles which will enhance and accentuate your natural beauty.
Whether you’re a pear, round, hourglass, triangle, inverted triangle, or rectangle shape, there’s a style out there which will flatter the natural outer you, leading to a confident queen within. If you’re looking for a style that’s versatile and good for all shapes, A-Line silhouettes are the perfect all-rounders. These dresses look classy in a variety of patterns and materials. The fit is comfortable and breathable while their silhouette covers all the essential areas. This makes them a perfect choice for all manner of occasions.
Whether you’re out for a picnic with friends, or classy cocktail parties, you can look and feel a million dollars.
Beyond the shape of your clothes, a key element of comfort is the material you’re wearing. Fibres such as cotton, linen, cashmere, and lycra are all breathable, lightweight fabrics that will provide maximum comfort wherever you are. If you can, opt away from synthetic fibres, or anything too rigid.
Finding clothing that fits is another important factor. We like to think of this simple mantra:
Clothes should fit you. Not the other way around.
Tight, constrictive clothing can impact you physically. Skin irritation, circulation problems, and chafing have all been associated with tighter clothing, which can become a distraction and detract from your overall confidence.
Embrace the breeze, and feel the freedom by wearing looser styles.
One-size-fits-all dresses, sold at Designer Friday, are a great option. Fitting sizes up to 16, you won’t have to worry about looking at the label anymore.
Every day, you can remind yourself that size does not define your worth, and that you deserve to feel beautiful. Dressing will be a happy, exciting experience, and shopping becomes more enjoyable too.
