At this time of year women are bombarded with articles about how to prepare for their upcoming holidays, and how to get ‘beach body ready’. But we know something they don’t know! The secret? If you take your body to the beach then it is already beach ready, no matter what your shape, or size, or what you choose to wear.
The key to looking great on the beach is feeling confident in what you’re wearing, and for many of us, it’s hard to feel great in a bikini that looks and feels like dental floss. The comfort and coverage of a beach kaftan is much more flattering and accessible. But how should you wear yours? The good news is, it’s easier than you might think.
Here are three ways to help you look and feel great in a kaftan:
Many women shy away from bright colours, instead blending into the background in plain black beachwear, kaftans, and accessories. They do this because black is considered to be both chic and slimming. But actually, wearing a pop of colour can be just as flattering as black, and strategically placed colours and patterns can help to highlight your best features and have a slimming effect of their own.
Wearing colour also brightens your face and makes your skin look fresh and vibrant. Bright colours make you feel as bold and exciting as they are: they attract attention and stand out from the crowd.
Fake it until you make it: people who wear colour and pattern exude confidence, whether they really have it or not!
Shopping for new beachwear, including a new beach kaftan, can often feel daunting. You don’t know what you’re looking for, the store assistants can be intimidating, and the strip lighting in the average fitting room isn’t flattering for anyone. It’s easy to come home empty handed and deflated.
Give the store a swerve and try your hand at online shopping instead! Order your kaftan online and try it on in the comfort of your own home. There are many benefits this offers:
1) You can try on your kaftan in an environment that makes you feel comfortable.
2) You can take your time, trying on your kaftan at your own pace and even at different times of the day.
3) You can try on your new kaftan with all of your swimsuits, enabling you to ensure that you’ve found a fit and style that will really make you feel happy and confident on the beach.
The key to looking and feeling great in your kaftan is to ensure that it fits you correctly.
Our final tip to ensure you look and feel great in your new kaftan is to choose one that fits you perfectly. Finding the correct fit is essential to looking great: a kaftan that is too loose will add extra bulk to your frame whilst one that is too tight will highlight any lumps and bumps you might prefer to hide.
