If you find yourself tempted to make drastic changes in order to achieve your ‘ideal’ body shape, don’t!
When it comes to choosing an outfit, it is important to dress for your body as it is. Remind yourself that your body will never be quite the same again, so it should be celebrated today!
Perhaps easier said than done, but make sure you get enough rest. It is impossible to feel confident if you are sleep deprived and run down.
It also does not hurt to dress in bright colors! Unsurprisingly, dressing in unapologetic, bold colors has been shown to lift our mood.
Again, this one may be easier said than done, but try to push through any insecurities related to exercise.
If you do want to change your body for some reason, make sure those changes are small and easy.
Another good tip when it comes to dressing for body confidence is to dress for your character, rather than your physical shape.
This is a shameless contradiction to the point above about sustainable fashion, but if something is going to make you work out, buy it!
Unfollow any accounts you find particularly triggering, and follow accounts that are actively focused on building positive body image instead.
