how to practice self love

There’s a myth surrounding lingerie and it’s time to bust it. You see, some people seem to be under the wholly misguided impression that wearing gorgeous underwear is about impressing someone else. Um, wrong. This act is about one person and one person alone — you. With that in mind, here are 8 empowering reasons to wear lingerie.

1.  Wearing beautiful lingerie is an act of self love

Lingerie has absolutely zero to do with your relationship status. Finding something special that makes you feel sexy, confident, and fierce is a true act of self-love. It’s about showing yourself the kind of care and affection that you would any person that you adore. Because you adore you. No shame in that. Every woman out there should take the time to explore the world of lingerie and all it has to offer.

2.  Oh, and it’s a celebration of your body

Whatever your shape or size, you deserve to celebrate all that is wonderful about your body. Trying to cover yourself up with baggy, ill-fitting clothing is a mistake. It will do nothing for your self-esteem or your body and you know it. Instead, you need to slip on something that truly suits your figure and makes you feel a million dollars… and then some. Trying out various styles and types of lingerie isn’t just about figuring out what works for you, it’s about enjoying your body and acknowledging how great it is.  Your body is fantastic and don’t you dare forget it.

3.  Treating yourself to something special is a must

Honestly, when was the last time that you treated yourself to something special? When was the last time that you bought something just for you? If you can’t remember, there’s a serious problem here. Sure, much of the time, you may have to spend your hard earned cash on bills, rent, and things for others, but don’t neglect yourself. Getting yourself a little gift now and then isn’t just a sweet thing to do; it’s essential to your well-being.

4.  It can seriously boost your confidence

From time to time, we all feel our confidence slipping away from us. Whether you’ve had a bad hair day or are feeling a tad down, you have to take control. You should feel better about yourself. No, scratch that, you need to feel better about yourself. Wearing something that makes you look incredible, such as a gorgeously crafted lingerie set, is certain to bring back your self-esteem. Remember, you’re a beautiful woman and you deserve the best.

5.  And make you feel like an absolute boss

As if that weren’t enough to get you heading for your lingerie drawer, try this on for size. When you wear something that flatters you and makes you feel awesome, it can change your entire outlook. You are how you feel. If you feel like a boss, the chances are that you’re going to end up acting like one too. You just never know what productive things will happen when you start acting like you already have them in your life.

6.  It can be your little secret… or not

Walking around, knowing how deliciously good you look beneath your clothes, is a remarkable feeling. You know something that everyone who you talk to does not. Maybe they never will. It’s like your little secret — no one has to know what you’re wearing or how incredible you look. You’re the one with all the power right here. Should you wish to share your secret with someone special, you can. But no one says you have to because this whole thing is all about you. Simple.

7.  Lingerie can express your personality

Playful and fun? Smart and serious? Maybe a little bit of both? No matter what your personality happens to be, there’s certain to be a lingerie style that suits you. Should you have to wear business attire or even a uniform on a day to day basis, no one else can dictate what you wear under it. That means that even if your outerwear is plain and simple, your underwear can be something truly exciting. Take the time to figure out what pieces truly express who you are inside and go for it.

8.  You deserve to feel your best

If there’s one thing that you should remember at all times, it’s this: You deserve to always feel your best. Whatever the weather and whatever you have to deal with each day, you should never overlook this simple fact. Looking your best and feeling your best go hand in hand so make sure that you take care of the former. When you really put effort into the things you wear, it makes a difference to your mood and outlook. What’s more, there’s no better place to start than with your underwear — so choose something special for yourself.

Putting on lingerie that makes you feel confident and empowered is an excellent way to start each day, so why not do it? Trust me, you seriously won’t regret it.
