Boobs In or Boobs Out, That is the Question

Over the last month it’s been strangely hot in Michigan. We didn’t get our usual snow storms or winter weather. Spring is finally here and hopefully the cold weather is behind us. As we prepare for continuous warm days, I felt the need to remind us ladies to watch what we wear. As women of God we want to please the Lord in our wardrobe. Now this doesn’t mean we have to wear turtle necks and head wraps BUT we should make sure our body parts aren’t hanging out for all to see. God has called us to holiness and modesty. I believe there’s a way to be modest but fashionable. Checkout this list below and let me know what you think.

Top 4 Reasons To Put Your Boobs Away and Be Stylish But Modest

1.  Everyone doesn’t need to see your goodies, leave something to the imagination. Your body is sacred and private. You want the man your interested in to work to get to know you, date you and marry you. When you wear your breast out, you don’t appear to be the woman wanting to have a lasting relationship, you look like the woman looking to get laid. Make sure your attire is representing you correctly.

2. You’ll attract guys who are only attracted to your body and you’ll give them the wrong impression about you. You’re a intelligent, hard-working woman but when you show up wearing a top that everyone can see through and is so low-cut even the women have to look away, no one will think of you as anything but the  girl who doesn’t cover up.

3. Your more than a sex object, your God’s child. Your self-esteem shouldn’t be based on how many guys are drooling over you. The bible says that you are fearfully and wonderfully made. You are so important to the Lord, He created you and knows everything about you. He knows the past hurts that you’ve experienced and He wants to heal you, love on you and comfort you. By dressing revealing to get attention, you’ll only find lust, not love. Love desires you with your clothes on, lust desires you only when your clothes are off.

4. Young girls around you are watching so ask yourself what are you showing them? I’m always amazed when I see a woman walking in the mall half-naked with 3 kids trailing behind her and one in the stroller. That woman is looking for attention the only way she knows how but sadly her children are watching and she’s sending them the wrong message. As women and mothers, we must show our children and other young girls around us how to carry themselves. We must watch our dress, conversations and relationships because their watching and what we do affects them. Ask yourself what your wardrobe is teaching your girls.

Full Figured Fashionista Part 2: My Personal Tips

Full Figured Fashionista part 1 was an article of professional fashion tips, part 2 includes a few tips that I use on a daily basis to make myself fashionable.

1. I always make sure I have on the right size undergarments. If your panties or bra are too big or small, it will mess up your look. You always want to have a smooth and even look and that starts with what’s underneath your clothes. You can have a sales clerk measure you so you know exactly what size you are.

Body magic!! Body magic is a wonderful undergarment smoother. I would encourage all plus size women who have a few curves or rolls that they want to hide to Invest in a good undergarment smoother. When you want to wear a tight blouse or dress and don’t want your belly or love handles to show, a body magic will come in handy!

2. I always try on my clothes in the store to make sure they fit me right (meaning the clothes show off the curves I want to show and hide the ones I don’t) There’s nothing worse than seeing a full-figured woman wearing too tight and too small clothes!! Whether you wear a size 2, 12 or 22, wear your size with confidence! If you’re a 22, don’t try to were a 16. You may feel better about yourself on the inside because you’re wearing a smaller size, but on the outside you look silly. Love the skin you’re in!

There are different cuts of pants available to accommodate ladies with the long legs, short skins, skinny or thick legs, ladies with lots of hips or no hips can all look fabulous! Ask a sales lady to help you find what looks great on you!

3. When I shop I try not to buy clothes that look the same. I want to spice up my wardrobe and have a variety of colors and styles. Try not to always buy the same colors and styles, be adventurous sometimes. Make sure your clothes match though, don’t dress up like Punky Brewster lol!

4. I fell in love with accessories a few years ago. Accessorizing is so much fun and can be very inexpensive. I love big earrings and I never pay more than $8 per pair. I often find great deals between $3-$6. Look for sales on purses, earrings, necklaces and bracelets. I often find great sales at little clothing stores at the mail, Claires, Forever 21 etc. Ashley Stewart has great accessories too! The right accessories can spice up any outfit. Its fun to mix and match the accessories with different outfits too in your wardrobe too.

5. I am a bargain shopper so my last tip would be to shop smart for your budget. Always be wise with your money. Looking good doesn’t have to break the bank. JCPenny has a good plus size section and Rainbow and Dots do too. Ashley Stewart and Lan Bryant are good stores also. There are plenty of places you can shop at. For shoes I shop at Payless, Village Shoe Inn, Burlington and DSW.

Well I hope these tips were helpful! Happy shopping!!
