Often, underwear is seen as a practical choice and as an afterthought. No one sees it in your day-to-day life as it is hidden beneath layers of other clothing. But underwear can be the key to boosting your confidence and help empower you to tackle the day.

Let’s dive into the world of empowering lingerie and how to use it to enhance your self-image.

Feeling confident whilst comfortable

The wrong underwear can be a distraction throughout the day, so finding pieces that are comfortable as well as beautiful is important.

Feeling confident in your own skin can feel hard. Bodies change frequently with life changes, age and illness. Feeling comfortable is a quick way to feel confident as you are not being distracted by a misplaced seam or tightness in the wrong places.

There are so many types of underwear out there, both in the knickers world and the bra sphere. If something isn’t comfortable, maybe it is time to try a new style.

Embrace your body

Your clothes, underwear included, should fit your body and not the other way around. Try not to focus on the size on the labels but rather on how the clothing fits your body.

Finding styles that complement your body can require some trial and error, although there are general guidelines. For example, if your stomach makes you feel insecure, you could try high-waisted underwear that smooths slightly whilst still being comfortable.

When it comes to bras, getting measured is an important step. There are ways to do it yourself at home, too so choose whichever makes you feel most comfortable. Once you have an accurate size you can begin to experiment with styles such as balconette, plunge and racerback.

Colours and designs

Although underwear is fundamentally a practical garment, that does not mean it has to be boring. In fact, when workplaces often have a dress code, being able to choose fun, colourful and beautiful underwear can help to add a spring to your step.

Keeping beautiful underwear as a personal secret helps to increase your confidence by knowing you are wearing something that is quintessentially you.

High-end brands tend to be where the playful nature of underwear is combined with class and confidence. Why not treat yourself to a luxury bra on your next payday? You can have something to look forward to as well as feel great when you wear it.

The mental impact of great underwear

Your outfit as a whole can impact how you tackle the day. For example, dressing in comfy casual clothes can lead to feeling relaxed and calm. Whilst this is ideal for a day at home, it is less helpful if you are at work!

The same can be said for underwear. You will have certain sets that are saved for special occasions but your everyday pieces should fill you with as much confidence as the special ones.

Finding clothing, whether it is underwear or outerwear, that increases your self-worth is a great help to boost your overall confidence.
