“Worry about loving yourself instead of worrying about the idea of other people loving you!”
When you think of a Bodycon dress, what does it bring to mind? It can certainly have a lot of different connotations depending on your figure, how you see yourself and how confident you are. The thing about a Bodycon dress is that it is designed to be fitted to your body in all the right places, but it can also mean that it can cling to those places you might not want it to.
I do believe that no matter your size, a lot of wearing a dress like this comes from having the confidence to do it. There are always ways to minimize those areas you don’t want to draw attention to, you can also choose colors that are more flattering and you can wear a kimono or longer jacket over it to make the whole outfit “flow” more.
The dress I am wearing in this post is definitely a traditional styled Bodycon dress, it clings to every curve of my body, the color is definitely going to draw attention, and I’m not wearing a jacket over it. All of these factors pretty much guarantee that whether you like it or not, when you wear something like this you are going have people looking and very often complimenting you. The only thing you need to make sure you have before you go out looking like this is confidence…will you be OK having a lot of attention and can you strut your stuff?
I have been in sales for 20 years now and been the top of my industry for over half of that time, so a lot of my confidence and self-esteem can come from knowing that I am good at something. Over the past few years I have experienced a dramatic change in my career that started with how I was treated. As a Woman in sales, it is quite often been intimidating to Men to know that I have been better than them (not that I have tried to make them feel that way). I realized that I have no control over what people think about me, but I do have control over what I feel about myself and nobody can take that away from me.
I think sometimes confidence can be mistaken for being vain or a little too attention seeking. To me confidence is the ability to be who you are regardless of who is around and what they may think. How I feel about myself is not dependent on how someone thinks of me…I am good!! I love to dress up, I love to feel good about myself and I when I know I look good, I always feel great about myself.
What makes you feel great about yourself? Not all of who we are is dependent on how we look, we are all complex creatures but there is usually something that makes us feel like we are the top of our game…
What’s your secret confidence building weapon? You know, the thing that no matter what, you feel amazing about yourself no matter what anyone does or whatever situation comes your way, you can handle it?
I wonder if it could be an experiment to give a Bodycon dress a try? How would that make you feel? Do you want to find out if you have the confidence to walk down the street and know you look good? I am wondering if it would be worth it to find out if it could help you have more confidence in yourself…?
What do you think? Are you up for it?
