Picking The Right Fashion For Your Figure
With different elements of the media and the internet drawing attention to beauty standards, it has become somewhat of a challenge to accept and love your body despite differences that could be perceived as flaws. This affects both men and women as it becomes a societal pressure to be in good shape and to be ideally slim and toned. This has been noted to cause self esteem issues, drops in self confidence and a negative effect on one’s image of oneself and their own sense of self worth.
Many people now take strong efforts to speak out against body shaming and to redefine set beauty standards. This helps people to be more confident about their looks and also helps them boost their confidenc
e in all other avenues, helping them to pursue and achieve more. With social media and society as a whole coming forward with more
positive messages regarding body image, it is helping to redefine predetermined ideals of beauty and good looks. The ever expanding fashion industry has also been instrumental in helping to create fashion and clothing lines that cater to larger sizes, which in turn make people feel better about themselves, and acts as a boost in self esteem.
The fashion industry has helped this cause by encouraging larger models to get into the fashion and modeling industry, while magazines such as Vogue highlight these models and shine a brighter light on plus size fashion. For larger made people, finding attractive clothes would have been hard in the past considering that fashion brands did not cater to them, thus resulting in them having to get their clothes specially stitched. Fortunately, given the switch in modern thinking, fashion brands manufacture their stylish clothes in larger sizes. Specialist retail stores may open which cater specifically to big made people. From a business angle, this will be beneficial as they are catering to a niche market with not much competition, resulting in higher profits and a wider customer base.
Many new clothing outlets have plus size sections, offering clothes in large sizes both for men and women, which can range from jeans for plus size women, shirts, innerwear etc, and the same for women’s clothes, such as larger sized blouses, bottoms and dressed. Many blogs and fashion websites have articles on fashion tips and how to dress exceptionally well. These articles also give tips on the ideal clothes for your figure.
It is however important to remember, that while self love is important despite the circumstances, a healthy lifestyle has to be observed in order to avoid health complications from occurring.
