Summer fashion typically includes lots of short skirts, low-cut dresses, shorts, and swimwear. Summer styles can look fantastic and keep us cool, but if you are short on confidence or would rather hide parts of your body away, you might dread the season and hate going to the beach. Here are some tips to help you feel more confident in swimwear, shorts, and summer dresses. 

Prioritise Comfort

We always feel more confident if we are comfortable. If you are uncomfortable, you are always conscious of your clothes and how they fit. If you are wearing comfortable clothing, you can almost forget it entirely. 

Focus on the Bits You Love

We all have bits of our body that we like more than others. Whatever your favourite parts are, try to choose clothes that highlight and show them off. 

If you feel able, try to step out of your comfort zone and uncover parts you’d usually keep covered up. Over time, you’ll stop worrying and start enjoying yourself, but remember, there’s nothing wrong with emphasising what you consider to be your best attributes. 

Make Smart Additions

Summer can be uncomfortable. Many of us find our thighs rubbing together when we wear summer dresses in hot, sticky weather. This can cause soreness and irritation. Adding cooling shorts under our dresses can provide protection and comfort. 

If you are self-conscious in lower-cut dresses or bikinis because of asymmetrical breasts, adding bra fillers can help you to feel more confident and comfortable. Most silicone bra fillers are comfortable and invisible, and bra fillers can even be worn when swimming. Adding Bra inserts to summer dresses can be a great way to make you feel more confident about your body shape without making any more extreme changes. 

Wear Scary Things with People Who Make You Feel Confident

We’ve all brought an item of clothing we love and want to wear, but that makes us a little uncomfortable and self-conscious. Try to wear these things at home and when you are out with people you love until you feel more comfortable. 

Don’t Force Yourself into Anything

If you don’t want to wear something, don’t. If it’s upsetting you or making you uncomfortable, don’t buy it or put it back into your wardrobe. 

Take Your Time Choosing Swimwear

Swimwear is essential for a summer on the beach or in the swimming pool, but it’s something that often worries us the most. 

Fortunately, not all swimwear is the same. Take your time shopping for something that is supportive, and that suits your body shape. 

Buy Clothes You Love

Instead of sticking to fashions and trends, buy items you love, even if they aren’t hot this season. Get to know yourself and your tastes, and wear things you love looking at and wearing. 

Do Things You Love

Doing things you love will also help you feel comfortable and make it easier to forget to worry about what you look like. 

Remember, fashion is a personal choice. If you aren’t comfortable wearing the most popular style, don’t. Find things you love and spend time with people who make you feel confident and happy.
