Intimidated By White Clothing

There was a time when I used to wear white clothing all of the time. That was many moons ago when I was much younger. However, as my hips spread wider and my derriere expanded, I grew uncomfortable about sporting my favorite white apparel.

Matters became worse after I turned forty. I began experiencing body changes like heavier menstruation and perspiration, random vaginal discharge, and bladder leakage. All of these issues made me frightened to wear white even more. In fact, my closet slowly became a sea of all black and dark-colored clothing.

All black everything: my reality.

It took my youngest daughter to scold me about having so much black in my wardrobe before I realized how much I owned, and  she was right. I decided to do a long and hard evaluation of my entire closet. During the process, I could not help but to think that diversifying my wardrobe would be a cinch if I only felt more confident in white clothing and other light colors.

🙁

Having comfortable, yet discreet absorbency and protection from bladder leaks and other ‘female problems’ would enable me to feel free to be me in my apparel, no matter what the color.

Then I started thinking, ‘Hey: celebrity women that I admire who are over the age of 40 aren’t afraid to wear white, regardless of their body shape and size. And I am sure that at least some of them deal with the same feminine issues that I have. If they can wear white clothing with confidence, so can I!

Beyonce’s Mom, Michelle Obama, Simone Smith — clearly they’re not exempt from the female aging process. Behind the celebrity, these women are just like me. Getting this through my head is what empowered me to speak free about my love for white clothing, and reclaim my wardrobe once and for all.

Another thing that inspired me tremendously was learning about the awesome products from Carefree®. Carefree® liners are specifically designed to help women feel fresh, dry, and confident in every piece of clothing.

With Carefree®, now I have no worries when it comes to feminine issues. Even on my busiest days, I feel comfortable no matter what my body may be going through. Carefree® liners have stay put adhesive that keeps the liners in place. I like the fact that the liners are so soft and flexible, that most days I forget that I’m even wearing one! Plus, they provide eight hours of odor protection and absorbency that enables me to feel totally clean throughout the day.
