Someone recently asked me what clothing I feel most comfortable in, and I responded that I’m happiest in somewhat shapeless, loose dresses. I realized later that it might come across as having a lack of confidence in my body, but it really isn’t that. I look good in a wiggle dress, my friends. They were made for girls with some curves.
Sure, I would rather take an ice cold shower than go try on bathing suits, and I stress about my weight now and then like anyone else, but I think that’s just part of being human. Even at my very skinniest, I felt most like myself in those same dresses I mentioned. They’re not flattering in the conventional sense of the term, but those are silly boundaries and I’m clearly very rebellious (I’m not).
Wear whatever makes you feel good, whether it’s a bikini or a shirt with kitties all over it. I feel like I’m always saying this hackneyed expression – about wearing what makes you feel good, not the kitty shirt part – but it’s just like my defense of chronic b****face. I have to explain the situation now and again, so well-meaning strangers don’t worry about the state of my mental health. And p.s., I have a magical dog named Miku, so I’m pretty much happy all the time:)
What outfit makes you feel like you? I’m curious!
