Petite Women And Plus Size Clothes Share A Fashion Trend

March 23, 2018

Women who have to wear plus size clothes or, even petite women, often think that they cannot follow a particular fashion trend let alone many of the latest fashion trends.

In the world of fashion and fashion trends, there are many people who believe that you have to have the perfect ‘model’ figure. But, how many of us are truly happy with our figures anyway? If we are totally honest with ourselves, we would probably admit that there is more than one thing we would like to change about our bodies, given the chance.

For the petite women, it could be as simple as putting on more weight because they can sometimes think that they are too small and thin. Then there is the total opposite of that, the women who wear the plus size clothes, trying hard to eat less to lose weight. Also, there are women who are not happy with their cleavage, are they too flat chested or are they too big up front? The upper arms on ladies of a certain age can be a problem for many too. The looseness and wrinkling of the skin! The tummy, the hips, the thighs, the list could go on.

Plastic surgery is often thought of as one way to get the figure that they want. But, for one thing, how many can afford it and also, how many actually want to put themselves through the pain and uncertainty of such a drastic procedure?

Changing the way that we look is a much better alternative to changing the shape of our bodies. This is where the beauty of fashion comes in.

What does it matter if we do not have the ‘perfect’ model figure when there are so many garments designed to take this into account. You will always find at least one particular fashion trend which can be suit your shape or size.

Perhaps you are classified a ‘petite women’, which generally means that you are small boned and shorter than average but nevertheless neatly proportioned. The length of a garments are normally considered when manufactured specifically for this size. You no longer have to have trousers turned up to the correct length. No longer do you have to take up every skirt or dress either. Retailers even have a specific allocated area within their store for the petite women range as the majority of clothing companies cater for this size when following the fashion trends,

Fashion for women who wear plus size clothes has changed dramatically over the last twenty or so years. No longer do you have to wear the shapeless outfits, which emphasized your size, and which were designed for comfort only. Now you can find beautiful, sexy clothing and accessories which can make you feel proud to wear.

These are just two women sizes, but no matter what your size, wearing the latest fashion trends which you like, can take the eye away from the shape of your body and onto the whole look. You too can look and feel like a model. So whether you are a petite woman or a woman who wears plus size clothes, the fashion trend, which you want to wear, are for everyone, regardless of their shape or size.

Not forgetting, if you are a lady who wears plus size clothes or are one of the millions of petite women who enjoy the idea of wearing the fashion trend of the moment, you can always start your own clothing business line and even from the comfort of your own home.

Empowering Women With Food: Our Physical Health

March 15, 2018

When people ask what I do, I tell them I help women with anxiety, diabetes and energy slumps flip their moods, transform their health, and skyrocket their energy… so they can focus on work and family instead of health problems.

Yet lately we’ve been hearing about empowering women, a wonderful trend. And it has me wondering whether I can – whether I do – empower women through food.

This brief post touches on physical health issues in women and how food can help prevent or reverse them.

Are Women’s Key Health Concerns Food-Related?

Some of the primary health issues of concern to women are heart disease, cancers (lung and breast cancers are the top 2), diabetes, hypertension, obstructive lung diseases, flu and pneumonia, and kidney disease. Of course, there are others.

Of the diseases above, the ones that may be considered food-related are the metabolic conditions: heart disease, breast cancer, diabetes, and hypertension. All of these have been shown to have their roots in insulin resistance. Helping women reverse these conditions with food and exercise is a specialty of mine, and I have a solid track record of doing so.

(Even colds and flu may be considered food-related to the degree that foods will either support the immune system or derail it.)

Another health concern for pregnant women is – or should be – autism in their babies. The risk of autism is greatly increased if the mom-to-be has one or more of the metabolic conditions listed above, and/or high cholesterol, high triglycerides or polycystic ovary syndrome.

Does Changing Diet Help Reverse Metabolic Conditions?

Most health information states that weight loss will lead to reversal of metabolic conditions. And yes, weight loss can and will absolutely help.

But how wonderful is it that just eating differently can set the changes in motion – even before the weight loss happens?

My approach focuses on setting metabolic changes in motion AND making them stick. To the degree that I show women how to eat in a way that can reverse insulin resistance and its associated diseases, I love being able to say that my work can and does empower women.

Fashion Tips for REAL Women

February 20, 2018

Fashion tips are easy to come by if you’re 5’8″, have a model figure, and can regularly drop five figures on clothes. But if you aren’t, don’t, and can’t, following fashion can be a bit of a challenge.

So what’s a fashion lover to do?

Learn how to dress yourself!

Here’s how:

1. Determine Your Body Shape

There are four primary body shapes: top heavy, bottom heavy, no waist, and hour glass. Each shape has clothes that look terrific on it, each has styles that don’t look so great. Match the clothes shape to the body shape, and you’re sure to have success.

2. Know Your Best Colors

Have you ever noticed that some brides look great in white while others look better in ivory? It’s because of the blue or yellow undertones in the skin, and it can vary from person, even within families. Find the colors that look best on you, and you’ll always look great.

3. Understand Your Clothing Personality

Some women love classics. Others prefer dramatic. Some like sporty. Others go for romantic. If you have clothes in your closet that you haven’t worn because they’re not “you,” chances are, you bought styles that didn’t fit your clothing personality. Match your clothes to your clothing personality and you’ll wear everything you buy.

4. Know Your Lifestyle

Have you ever had to turn down an invitation because you literally had “nothing to wear?” If so, that means you have gaping holes in your wardrobe. You’ve funneled all your clothing allowance to one or two of your primary activities, so when something unexpected comes up, you have nothing to wear. If you build a well-rounded wardrobe, you’ll always be in style.

Understanding fashion isn’t just knowing about the latest fashion trends – it’s understanding what works for YOUR body shape, YOUR clothing personality, and YOUR lifestyle. Once you master these basics, dressing fashionably is a snap!

Women’s Health Issues

February 15, 2018

The International Woman’s Day theme for 2016 is “Planet 50-50 by 2030: Step It Up for Gender Equality”. Women have come a long way. Their role in the society is not limited to reproduction and an aid to men. Today she stands on equal footing as men. She does everything that only men did, up until a few decades ago. She serves in the military; she runs businesses, leads nations, runs space missions, makes families and fights the fair fights of the society. Among all this she hasn’t given up on the institution of marriage and family. She is still a mother first and a woman.
It’s not easy for a woman to make it in this male dominated world. Not all nations of the world consider their women citizens to be equal to their male citizens. In some war trodden countries, the situation of women is abominable. She is traded as a physical quantity and treated worse than animals. In the more developed and free thinking world, she has to face gender inequality, unequal pay issues, and biased medical issues.

Many countries do not give importance to many health issues faced by women. No gender specific health care criterion is available to them. Mental health and reproductive health of women are some such issues which have long awaited significant development. Today we divert our attention towards a handful of such issues.

Cancer – Cancer affects women more than any other form of diseases, with two of the most common ones being breast and cervical cancers. It is said that each year around half a million women die from cervical cancer and half a million from breast cancer. Most women still do not know about the mammograms and pap tests, when and how to take them. Breast and cervical cancer awareness is important in today’s time and day.

Mental Health – Women are more likely to face depression and anxiety at some point of their life than men, due to biological differences. While depression is the most common mental health problem for women, suicide is a leading cause of death. Abuse and neglect are often factors in women’s mental health problems. Treatments need to be sensitive to and reflect gender differences.

Heart Disease – Heart diseases are a leading cause of death. Important differences in the approaches to treatment and prevention of heart disease between women and men have lead to the increase in death numbers. We should be made more aware of the heart healthy choices they can make and the kind of lifestyle they should lead so as to lead a happy, healthy life.

Reproductive and Maternal Health – Sexual and reproductive health problems are responsible for one third of health issues for females between the ages of 15 and 44 years. It said that unsafe sex is a major risk factor, particularly among females in developing countries. While progress has been made, almost 300, 000 women died from complications in pregnancy and childbirth, and most of these deaths could have been prevented if the women had access to family planning and basic services.
HIV/AIDS – HIV/AIDS is the leading cause of death for ladies aged between 15 to 44-years-old. It said that too many young girls still struggle to protect themselves against sexual transmission of HIV and to get the treatment they require. The stigma attached to STDs is also a major factor for these deaths. It stops them from seeking the required medical help and advice.

These entire problem have one thing in common, they all seek a very different gender specific approach towards handling them. It’s about time gender specific studies and research to start, and we should enjoy equal rights as men.
Political and social awareness of the struggles of women worldwide are brought out and examined in a hopeful manner. With all the efforts dedicated towards us for one day, it is essentially to have resources diverted towards our health.
