Four Fixes For Your Tennis Wardrobe

Eleven by Venus Williams

Problem: Skirt undershorts always dig into my legs and emphasize unsightly cellulite that make me feel self-conscious.

Sofibella SkirtSolution: Cellulite is inevitable in 90% of women. However, some spandex is cut to small for the skirt size. You have two options: find a longer skirt that provides more coverage or shop skirts that provide more “give” in the spandex. A skirt that is forgiving and available in 3 different lengths (Including Plus Sizes): Sofibella Women’s Perseverance Skirt.

SpanxAnother trending option is the skirted legging-it provides excellent coverage and has a built in pocket for your tennis ball: Lija Skapri. Or try one designed by the nation’s leader in looking fabulous: Spanx. Tip- For skirts you already own: you can simply roll/tuck the spandex up one or two times. This will provide you with some slack so that you don’t get the “Skapri Lijaorange peel” effect.

Problem: My local country club only has clay courts- I’m not much of a slider and I really dislike having to constantly kick the clay out of the grooves in the bottom of my shoe.

Solution: Asics makes clay court shoes that feel exactly like their hard court ones. From experience, whenever we would travel to the East Coast and play in the clay court tournaments we would slip these on and transition effortlessly. Guaranteed slide-proof. Asics Gel Resolution 6 Clay White/Silver

Problem: My country club only allows me to wear white. I’m tired of the preppy collared look. I want to stand out!Inphorm

Solution: You have to choose unique fabrics and layers to play with. Depending on your body type, you can utilize draping or ruching. Or, if your club permits add a pop of color or a dramatic line. A fantastic line to check out: InphormInphorm

Problem: I am more mature in age, but I still want to wear styles that are fashion forward and fit my body. I want apparel that doesn’t age me, but also is age appropriate.Chrissie By Tail

You Are The New Sexy

IMG_6742 (1) copy

In today’s society, men  and women alike have been brought up looking at ads, social media, television, and magazines that give us the impression we have to act, dress, look, and be a certain way. As a young woman, I have felt the need to look a specific way and criticized myself for not being able to achieve that perfection.

I have always been a tall, strong girl and in sports that body type was a blessing. But… as a girl, I never felt as dainty and small as I thought I should be.IMG_6702

But why do we care? Why is that we find it so hard to be nice to ourselves and just appreciate who we are?

I believe it’s stemmed from a society that can’t help but pick favorites. For years, being skinny was sexy, now strong is the new sexy. Tomorrow purple hair will be the new sexy! It is really just so exhausting!

There is no way that sexy is defined by one type, one size, one eye color,  how much muscle you have, or what your sexual preference is. It’s time to stop the stigmas, and move on to a new generation that loves all and accepts all.

I have days where I feel fantastic, and days when I feel terrible. But, maybe if I start to accept myself, love myself, and be kind to myself, the terrible days will become less and less. And eventually, dissipate completely. Try to be kinder to yourself, because you are sexy, you are beautiful, and life is too short to not believe it.

I’m a beautiful girl with a big butt and strong legs. Yeah, I may have a few dimples here and there, but if I don’t love every single one, then who else can?

Stay Fabulous!
