We are constantly bombarded with images of the perfect body in magazines, TV and movies.. Many plus size women feel insecure and uncomfortable with their bodies.A negative body image is characterized by a distorted perception of how we really look.Loving yourself, no matter what size you are, is the key to developing a positive body image and learning to dress yourself in clothes that accentuate the positive and hide the negative.
Let’s be honest, most of us are not built like a supermodel.We all have flaws, whether they be internal and external!I have know women who on the outside look as if they stood in God’s line and received all the blessings in terms of looks and figure, yet were the most insecure women in the world.I have also know women, who although not built like a supermodel, always carried themselves like they were God’s gift to the world.It’s all in your Attitude.
