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?

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.

Debra Mandeville

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...

Heidi Prescott

People who don't take any crap from anyone and wear sensible shoes they can kick ass in.

i guess that would be sexy and alluring.

SJ Kurtz

as i said near the top of this survey i admire confident people. i think comfort leads to confidence.


Comfortable: Not having to worry about feeling exposed/that things aren't looking or working right. When I'm comfortable, I can then be confident.

Confident: Walk with pride. Don't recede in on themselves, instead they project outwards. Always looking up, being present in the world, not taking anyone's BS.



I'm not a native speaker of English... Well, I those words make me think of people that look good no matter what they are wearing. They feel good about themselves and it shows.

Comfort is being within your zone while confidence is reserved for people willing to push the boundaries and be outside their zone.

comfortable means lazy. confident means feeling good in your skin because you know what you do and you know it is right.

Theresa Schlichtherle

Pour que no los dos? I like when women aren't afraid to dress for the occasion. If you're hiking, dress for it! No worries and women being ready to go oddly inspire me.

Kay Mollica

Comfort for me means not having to adjust, check or fix anything throughout the day. It means everything fits right and feels good against my body. Confidence for me looks like someone who isn't concerned with their appearance, or contrasting that--someone who is making a bold statement with their makeup or clothes.

Comfortable means someone who is happy with whom they are. And someone who does not feel that there is a considerable amount of effort involved in something.

A person who is confident is a person who does not worry about what others think of them, yet still wants to be a person whom others think highly of.

I think if you wear the right clothes you can have the effects you want

Danielle O

If I wear sneakers to office but then I am worried about it being too casual in office then those sneakers are not comfortable to me, regardless of how good it feels to my feet.

Confidence is if I don't care whether I look too casual in office or not.


yanqin lin

As I've already said I dress for myself so I'm always proud of my choices. Just stop caring too much about masses and their opinions.

Valentina Rosso

Heidi Madsen

I am an admirer Of those people as well. Even if a person isn't up to most people's standards and they still love themselves, that's beauty

Amber Doty

To me, it means that someone is wearing their own skin like the best, most favorite outfit they've ever had -- flaws and all.

Sophia Ruthkowski

Comfortable = pragmatic clothes. I can walk in the city in the elements in it; it doesn't chafe or rub or pull or need re-adjustment. It doesn't reveal things I'd like to keep private.

Confident= clothes that don't need a lot of attention, so I don't feel self-conscious; feeling like I have the right attire for the occasion, like I understood the expectation.
