Look good...always! Feeling good is what has lead us to people wearing yoga pants, sweats, and baggy jeans. That's an expression of not caring amd being selfish.

If you look good to yourself, you will feel better. Looking good is a step towards feeling better.

If I dont feel good, I won't feel good. It may be the right Tuxedo for an occasion or shorts to garden or my.clothes to do my art.

You can have both...every single day...Buy clothes that fit and fabrics that stretch are a plus... I don't need to see every roll or wrinkle under your clothes.......

I have multiple chronic pain problems, therefore I'm uncomfortable no matter what, so I dress to me the most comfortable possible.

I'm not working and with COVID-19, only do errands. Went out to dinner last night & I dressed nicely, (no dunagrees). For myself and for my outward appearance for others.

Don’t they go hand in hand? I’m going to feel comfortable but look fabulous too.

Definitely in a better mood when my clothes feel comfortable. However, my clothes that feel good also look good (at least to me) or I would never have purchased them.

I'm an etailer, and I work from home full-time. My colleagues have no way of knowing what I'm wearing.

Much more important to feel good. If you feel good you will exude confidence, which will make you look good

Clothing doesn't truly fit me. I have to try everything on before buying it (or go for acceptable return policy). Even so, I am sensitive to the touch or anthing touching me. So clothing - particularly seams and straps - bother me. I do dress for style, but I prefer to dress for comfort.

If you are comfortable beginning the day, the end can't be otherwise.

We're retired so there's nobody to impress. When I was teaching I dressed for comfort and utility, but dressed up a bit to put on a professional look on parents' nights.

You must feel good to make others feel that way.
