A boost in confidence is great. We feel surer of ourselves, and people feel surer about us. One of the key ways in which we can feel more confident is by being more feminine. We come across more ladylike and charming, and we’ll generally find it easier to get our way in lots of things. Win-win, right?

1 In 10 Women Have This Health Issue… Do You?
1. Use perfume or scented lotion
It never hurts to smell nice, especially when there’s a strong connection between scent and sexual attraction. One or two spritzes of perfume are usually enough and will help with your feminine image, but if you’re not the perfume sort, try giving scented lotion a go.
2. Groom yourself
The small details count and will make you look put together, so it’s not just about threading your brows but also keeping your hair soft with regular conditioning. You don’t have to wear makeup if you don’t want to, but it’s important to still be presentable with well-moisturised skin. Also, always remember to check your breath.

3. Maintain good manners
We know that we shouldn’t be too loud and say “please” and “thank you”, but you can always go above and beyond basic manners. For example, refrain from rolling your eyes (no matter how tempting) as you’ll just come across rude and dismissive, and always wave at your dining partner the moment you spot them as you’re giving instant acknowledgment.
4. Wear nice shoes
Shoes can make or break an outfit, and they’re especially important if you’re not the sort who’s big on accessories. Even if you like your footwear simple, be sure to choose one that’s well-made—there’s nothing pretty about threads or beads hanging off the side.
Smiling shows that you’re happy and approachable, which makes you appear more confident and feminine. Confidence is also all about being at ease with yourself, so smile a lot and flirt sometimes to show off your playful nature.
