Everyone no matter their color or size deserves clothes that fit, whether they’re practical pieces like tees, jeans and everyday bras or just fun like lingerie. For too many years, nude meant one shade of beige and options for bras and underwear above a certain size were dismal and boring. Fortunately, brands are making huge strides towards inclusive lingerie and there are more options now than ever.
Nude now also means a number of rich shades of brown with different undertones to blend effortlessly with your skin tone and under your clothes. Pieces too pretty to just be worn under clothes and too sexy to be worn out are now available in a variety of sizes. Whether you’re wearing lingerie for yourself, someone else or just because it’s a Tuesday, a matching set (or just a mix and match of pretty pieces) that fits great and looks even better, will leave you feeling like your most confident self.

Don’t sell yourself short by thinking you are only your body or your personality, no matter how intriguing and dramatic they may be. For behind them, there lies a more profound part of your true self. Call it ‘spiritual’ or call it ‘higher consciousness’… call it what you will, but… Call it! One of the doorways to that higher self is through the cultivation of your intuitive wisdom. As you learn to listen to and trust your intuition, you will find a quiet place in the heart of your being that is wise and can guide your actions. One of the things it will remind you of is your interconnectedness to all things. And out of that appreciation will spontaneously arise compassion for those who suffer; for the earth, and for all living things. When that happens, don’t be overwhelmed by the suffering you see, by the darkness that exists in the human condition. True, there is much of it. But so, too, is there much caring and compassion in the world. Mahatma Gandhi said, “What you do may seem insignificant, but it is very important that you do it.” It is important for yourself, as well as for the balances in the world. As you let your compassion guide you into action to help heal the earth and those who suffer, your very acts will feed your own compassionate heart and in so doing, open the inner gates to knowing your own highest self. I promise you that plumbing the depths of your being is an unparalleled adventure. I wish you well on the journey. In Love, Ram Dass words via @itslemonwater photo @naomyvv by @emmaboonne
