It’s the only body you’ll ever have. Treat it with respect. Dress it so it’s comfortable and you are flattering it.
Our bodies change with age. They don’t remain youthful all our lives and many women struggle with this fact as they age. They had learned how to dress the body they once had, but when it changes it can be really hard to have to learn a whole new set of rules (and also to love that body).
Embrace the body you have today. If you’re feeling like you’re short, fat, middle-aged and unattractive, try and change your perspective about your body, it’s keeping you alive and letting you do all the things you do each day! Appreciate it.
Every body can be dressed in a way the expresses the personality of its owner, and enhances it. There is no “one” best shape or size of body that everyone should aspire to.
Write a letter to your body. It’s a great exercise to help you discover all the good things about your body, rather than focusing on what you don’t like (which sadly is what most women do, most of the time).
Go shopping (without planning on buying) and try on clothes that you might not have tried on in the past. See how different shapes and styles look on you.
