Read Surveys (By Question)
31. Many people say they want to feel “comfortable,” or that they admire people who seem “confident.” What do these words really mean to you?
Comfortable is a matter of fit and flattery--most often, we're uncomfortable when clothes are too snug in some places or we feel they're exposing our real or imagined flaws. I think comfort is also about dressing appropriately. A comfortable outfit can be bold, but it's not overtly inappropriate in a way that draws more attention than you want to receive.
Confidence is such a personal concept. I think women put unreasonable rules in place about what's flattering. I read in Betty Halbreich's book that almost no woman loves her upper arms. I wish we could all forget these silly rules so we felt confident more often. I think confidence can be found in clothes that make us feel beautiful and powerful.
I think they mean the same thing in a way. It's the absence of self consciousness. Feeling at home in their own skin.
being oneself and owning it.
comfortable means nobtugging, pulling, fussing or the desire tobrun home and undress
confident is when you nailed the right look for where you are.
I think when im confident im a better person, as a mother and wife but also at work.
Comfortable; means you like what your mind is saying when no one is there.
Confident; can stand alone without the help or praise of others.
Comfortable, or more like comfy, is my favorite word. I strive to be comfy in every area of my life. I think that these two go hand in hand. Confidence is the ability to feel comfy in the hardest of situations. And that’s totally a conscious choice. You’re never going to please the haters, but you can always ignore them.
"Comfortable" usually means ugly. Confidence usually comes with being well groomed and in good quality, clean clothes that are not necessarily comfortable.
they want to look nice
It mean a lot to me to have some kind of assurance about the way they live.
Every person who visits my home or gets to know me says they "are soooo comfortable & relaxed in my presence" as I am very tolerant of others' styles. I am confident and have high self-respect. When one is OK with who they are, it spills over. Comfort is my #! priority in all facets of my life. I'm confident because I've succeeded in most everything I've tried, and have learned from my mistakes.
To me my clothing can help me to be more confident and I also like to feel comfortable in my clothes because that also helps my state of mind.
To me these words mean that I am happy in my own skin and I don't want to change anything about myself.
confidence is comfort with yourself
comfort with yourself is confidence
for clothes to help with both, you need to feel good in them, and that means no pulling or pinching or finicky bits. the clothes work with pragmatic perfection. you can almost forget about them but maybe you are aware of how lovely they are to wear.
Comfortable for me is wearing something I don't have to be worried about all the time (for example: not wearing a skirt that I'm constantly worried is being blown up by the wind or a t-shirt that's a little too fitted and have to worry about how my stomach looks when I sit down etc etc) and that comfort kind of allows for confidence...
