Beach Wear

Some people go dressed up to beach as they may go to visit a function. It is very important to remember that when you go to beach, it is purely for having a breath of fresh air and relaxing. Hence your clothes should be comfortable and casual. Avoid wearing heavy jewelry that you may have to regret when you lose it. Your footwear has to be comfortable as you will be walking over sand. If you intend to get your feet wet in the beach water, then it is preferable to wear plastic footwear that can be easily washed clean once you are back home. Wear clothes like capris with tees or a synthetic salwar set that might dry soon if you have got yourself wet in the water. Avoid wearing jeans as the denim fabric takes a long time to dry when wet.

Nithya's Querie Answered

Nobdy is perfect. We all know that even the models who walk the ramp have imperfect bodies or the problem of acne. But they all are trained to look good. In a similar manner, if we become aware of our shortcomings and our good features, we can try to highlight the best in us. Do not think you are fat instead call yourself as plus size. It is more sophisticated and elegant and also does not give the idea of a rolly polly person. When you respect and love yourself, others will naturally respect you. Like an echo, the thoughts reflect back and the Universe always says 'yes' to our thoughts.
When you wear clothes, opt for dark colors. Black is a slimming color. Since you are also tall, you can wear outfits with a break in color. Avoid wearing short kurtas and fabrics that will add bulk to your shape. Wear medium fitted clothes. If you have bulky arms, avoid wearing sleeveless tops and cap sleeves.
