Regardless of whether you’re newly paired up with a partner, living the single life, married for what feels like millennia or back on the market after being divorced, why not make February the month that you show some love for yourself?

Research shows that people with low self-esteem tend to have ‘lower quality’ relationships and friendships than those with a healthy sense of self-worth.

Their relationships have less love and trust and more conflict and ambivalence.

This is because people tend to assume that others see them in a similar way to how they see themselves.

Why not out the best in yourself this month by giving yourself that extra dose of self love.There are many ways that a woman can give themselves the love they need, and looking good is one of them.

What you wear can have a huge impact on the way you look and as a result, the way you feel. So opt for high quality outfits in styles and shades that best suit your figure and personality.

So in the words of TV show presenter and drag artiste RuPaul, ‘If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love someone else!”’

Check out some of these great plus-size items that will have you looking and feeling good.
