Be honest when it comes to your body image

So many women today want to look hot, and sexy or whatever the case may be. It’s not a bad thing to be honest, and it’s really just a part of human nature when you really think about it and applies to both genders fairly equally. If you are like the thousands of women out there who want to look their absolute best, there are many ways to actually go about making it happen.

And one of the first ways that women turn to is their clothing selections. People know that black makes you look slimmer and other fashion tidbits like that, and women definitely look to use that to their advantage. However, as tempting as that may be, the reality is that making these sorts of fashion choices lead to marginal improvements on the way you look, at best.

In fact, I would argue that relying on fashion to “disguise” the way you look is a recipe for disaster. Sure, wearing black on its own isn’t anything more than a psychological tactic that tricks the eyes of people who look upon you. But it quickly spirals out of control, with women everywhere trying to wear tight fitting jeans or tight tops that are intended to make a woman appear sexier.

Let me tell you ladies – that just doesn’t work. If you try this tactic, you are more than likely just going to look like you are trying way to hard just to fit into your tight clothing, and you’ll look ridiculous. Wearing clothing that actually fits you will make you look so much better than if you are trying to fit into something tighter as a way to compensate for your body, and that’s a fact.

So what does this have to do with body image? Well it’s a matter of accepting who you are and ensuring that your fashion choices should accurately reflect that, rather than trying to be something that you’re not. If you are a bit overweight, then wear clothes that allow your body room to breathe and allow you to be comfor4table. Not only will you look better, but you’ll feel a lot better too.

And as one last point – just because you are honest with how your body is, that doesn’t mean you can’t change it through hard work. In fact, being honest is the first step towards making meaningful change, since otherwise you would just try to disguise your body through other less effective means. Once you know that your body needs work, you will be that much more willing to do something about it. Dieting and exercising are two great ways to improve your body drastically over the course of just a few months, and they will make you look a whole lot better than just trying to look better with deliberate fashion choices (that again, do not always work)

Body image is an important aspect of any woman, period. But what is even more important is being honest about what your body is or isn’t. As long as you are honest with yourself, you can actually make meaningful changes for your body for the better and for the long-haul, rather than utilizing ill-advised fashion shortcuts that could potentially do more harm than good.
