Dresses are a fantastic feature of any wardrobe. Whether you’re a girly girl, or a tomboy at heart, wearing a classy number now and again can feel amazing. The right dress is a power symbol, like a decent car, or a flashy watch. The perfect dress ensures you’ll turn every head in a room. No matter your tastes, that power is sure to feel great.
But, sometimes, we all go through a bit of a wobbly when it comes to dresses. They’re a clothing choice which needs a fair bit of confidence. There’s no getting around the fact that you’ll have to show more of your body in a dress than you may at other times. And, that takes guts! But, it usually does pay off. If you’re having a crisis about the prom dresses you can’t get yourself to try on, or just a dress for a business meeting, you’ve come to the right place. We’re going to look at a few ways you can address your lack of dress confidence, and get back into the swing of things.
Do the prep
As mentioned above, wearing a dress means showing more of yourself than you may be accustomed to. That can be tough. But, if you know you that those parts are primed, you’ll find the exposure much easier to deal with. Obviously, your first step should be to shave and moisturize your legs. If you have the confidence to reveal the fuzz, then good for you. But, most of us can’t go that far, and even one day’s worth of growth can stop us reaching for that dress. So, make sure to shave before you even attempt getting your legs out. Think, too, about applying some fake tan. You don’t want to over the top here, but a sun-kissed glow is always a great way to bolster your confidence.
Small practice sessions
Like anything, dress confidence is all about practice. If you jump straight in with a big event, you may struggle to find the necessary courage to go all out. But, if you get into the habit of wearing a dress for small trips, you’ll soon get used to the exposure. So, instead of waiting for your next night out, wear that dress to the shop, or on a walk around the block. In no time, you’ll feel much more comfortable. You may even start to crave the freedom dress wearing offers.
Believe you look good
There’s no denying that this is easier said than done, but believing you look good in dresses is a sure way to find your awesome. Half of the battle with a dress is the way you wear it. If you don’t believe you’re owning that outfit, your posture will become hunched and defensive. That kind of thing really shows with a revealing dress. Instead, believe you look terrific. Hold your head high, and your back straight, and strut your stuff. Before you know it, your belief is sure to come true.
