Naked x Nude

I’ve always wondered about the difference between being naked and being nude. I’ve always thought they were simply two words, meaning the same thing. Having your bare butt out in the open. However, as usual, I was wrong.

To be Nude refers to the absence of clothing. To be Naked on the other hand is a much broader term. Although yes it can refer to again being absent of clothing, naked, goes deeper with an idea of vulnerability, and the notion of being unprotected in some way.

We have all been there at some point, where we just did not like what we found ourselves seeing when looking in the mirror. There is no joy left in our reflections and we live in a constant fear of having someone else seeing us unclothed and utterly bare.

Lucky for us, there are so many ways to accept our bodies and here are some great ways to start:


1) Accessorize

Lingerie has always been there as an accessory to the female body to allow her to feel beautiful. We accessorize in all ways as a way to hide what we don’t want seen, and emphasis what we do.

We all carry that one beautiful set that no matter how naked we are inside, we feel just a little more secure and beautiful in.

With the perfect pair of panties, and the right size bra, we can make our curves and even our unwanted rolls seem beautiful and in place.

"Lingerie is not about seducing men, 
it's about embracing womanhood" 
- Dita Von Teese

The point of lingerie is to help us overcome those insecurities, and to embrace everything we are. Not everyone is capable of changing their bodies, so we just have to learn to be proud and highlight everything it is we want seen.

2) A little at a time gets you there

It is hard to believe that a person can become comfortable with themselves in seconds. A great way to start is to just look at yourself in the mirror a little a day. Get down to your favourite panties and look at yourself in the mirror for a few seconds a day until you are comfortable staring at yourself with pride and not ridicule.

Make it a habit to each morning look at yourself, and compliment one thing you like about yourself. Start with complimenting how great your boobs look in that new bra, or how your underwear accentuate your beautiful curves.

With time it won’t seem so difficult to do so and you’ll never want to stop. After a few weeks, you’ll forgot about how uncomfortable you once were and might possibly never want to get dressed again.

3) Remember what’s genuinely sexy

Being down to your panties is not always about sex and having someone else see you in that way. Sometimes, it really is just about you looking at yourself and being happy with what you see. The sexiest thing about a woman is her confidence. When you can be relaxed with who you are and what you look like nobody will be able to keep their hands off you- not even yourself!

4) Spend more time nakedScreenshot_2016-01-21-22-21-00.png

The best way to overcome the uncomfortable feeling you get when you take off your clothing and you are stuck there alone with your bare skin, tummy rolls, and unpleasant bumps is to be stuck there bare skinned alone with all of it.

The more time you spend without all those layers on, the faster you will come to be comfortable with who you are and what you look like.

Spend an hour a day doing your normal routine, just without a few extra pieces of material between you and your stuff. Read a book, write a blog, do the dishes, have a little fun.

You are your biggest critic, and trust me, nobody will ever be complaining if you start walking around without your clothes on.


It doesn’t matter how much time you spend working out or dieting, if you aren’t able to love yourself for who you are, you will never find yourself happy. Put on your favourite bra, and your cutest panties and enjoy what you have because if you can’t nobody will.

    I love this! I think every woman should know what it feels like to be sexy and just be comfortable in their skin. I used to think wearing lingerie was for men but now I see how it’s really for the woman who wears it. Every woman needs to embrace their body and know the power of their femininity.
