The average model is about 5’10”, 115 pounds and around a size 4. However, did you know the average American woman is about 5’4”, 164 pounds and a size 14? It can be challenging to know exactly what to wear when the media shows a distorted view of the “normal” woman. In part two of four in this style makeover series, I’ll reveal my 3 sexy style must haves.

As women, we can never underestimate the value of looking and feeling sexy. It takes just a quick glance for someone to evaluate you when you meet for the first time. In this short time, the other person forms an opinion based on your body language, your demeanor, and your appearance. First impressions are nearly impossible to reverse, so those first encounters are important because they set the tone for every subsequent relationship with that person going forward! Here are 3 sexy style must-haves that help you make a great first impression and set the tone for positive relationships in the future.

3 Sexy Style Must-Haves

Whether your style is a bit more demure and coy, or sexy and risque, there are 3 must-haves every woman should own.

  1. Push-up Bra: Push-up bras work to lift the breasts. They help them to look larger and fuller creating a slimming effect to your waistline. Avoid overly-padded push-up bras that make you look 2-3 cups larger. Not only is it deceptive, but too much padding can make you appear top-heavy. A good push-up bra will lift what you have–there may be a little padding as a means of lifting, but it shouldn’t be deceptive in making your breasts look larger than they are. The perfect push-up bra will enhance your cleavage, making you look and feel a lot sexier.
  2. Stilettos: Heels not only make your look taller, they also make your calves look more toned, because they engage those muscles. Wearing heels also naturally changes your posture by rotating your hips, tucking in your bottom, and helping to keep your back and shoulders straight. Clothes also look better on you, especially jeans and full length dresses or skirts that would have otherwise touched the ground. I’m not saying you need to wear a pair of 5-6 inch heels everyday, but there are definitely times when they will come in handy.
  3. Stretch Jeans: Sometimes you’ll hear them referred to as denim leggings or jeggings. They are miracle workers! They tighten and lift your butt and tuck away unnecessary hip and thigh flesh we don’t want showing. Stretch jeans slim your waist and work for practically every body type since they stretch to fit you and not the other way around. They act as Spanx around a woman’s body and look great paired with a cute top.

Being sexy isn’t about showing as much skin as possible, but about owning and feeling confident in whatever you wear. Remember, you can never underestimate the value of feeling sexy, confident, and radiant! Until next time…
