Everyone struggles with feelings of insecurity, especially in the summer when the heat has everyone reaching for swimsuits and shorts. Add to it all a few first dates or other romantic situations, and it’s easy to see how people can feel off their game.

While it’s normal to have these feelings, the last thing you should do is to let them stand in between you and life! So how can you overcome insecurity and enjoy yourself, no matter how you’re really feeling? Here are a few tips to get you started.

Not happy with your waist? Many people have trouble with their tummy, but that’s okay, it’s easy to conceal it a bit with sexy darker colors like emerald green, wine red, and royal blue. These colors are slimming and perfect for all skin tones. You can also select flattering cuts, like baby doll lingerie, A-line tops, and other styles that hang loosely around the midsection.

Feeling insecure about your bust? This one is simple to fix with a padded, push-up bra set. You can also select lingerie with these features built-in, like a cleavage-enhancing bustier. If you’re looking for a more daring solution, try a plunging neckline. This bold and sexy cut looks great no matter your cup size.

Unhappy with your thighs? You shouldn’t worry about thick thighs, just treat yourself to lingerie that stops mid-thigh, or a sexy robe to provide a bit of extra coverage. If you’re interested in two-piece sets, boy shorts can do the trick. These sexy bottoms are flattering and they don’t pinch, pull, or crawl like other types of bottoms.

Don’t like your arms? This is a very common problem, but you can conceal it by choosing sleeve styles that extend mid-way between your shoulder and elbow. When it comes to lingerie, simply pick ribbon-style straps for a more flattering look. Of course, you can use a lacy cover-up or a slinky satin robe to create the same effect.

There you have it, a few easy tricks to help you fake confidence until you’re feeling it. Remember, though – you’re beautiful just like you are. Don’t let a little insecurity ruin the fun!
