Some people may not agree with me on this topic and that’s just fine, they don’t need to read this post nor forward it to others. I understand this is somewhat of a taboo topic among Christian women, but I tend to not have a problem with taboo topics. Just because you believe in Jesus doesn’t mean you can’t be a sexy wife. Even the Song of Solomon, in the Bible, is quite steamy!
But you don’t have to look sleazy to be sexy for your husband. You see, being sexy starts with confidence. It’s knowing deep down inside that you are beautifully created by God. How could you not be confident in how the Creator of the Universe made you? When you’re confident in yourself, your husband will be too. It’s not about being arrogant or talking dirty, it’s about holding your head high with the knowledge that you are a fabulous woman. Two women who I admire for their confidence, who dress classy and yet are quite sexy are Oprah and Queen Latifah. I’m not idolizing them, nor am I suggesting that you mimic everything about their lives or be in support of them. I’m simply expressing my own views on how a woman can dress decent, be confident, and that is sexy.
Be Fashionable! Find the clothing style that best compliment your figure. There’s absolutely no need to look frumpy in your desire to be modest. A confident, sexy woman can dress modestly and classy at the same time. Sometimes clothing doesn’t quite fit right, but don’t let that discourage you. Many celebrities have the same problem. Just tailor your new clothes with a few stitches here and there or pay someone to do it for you.
Accessorize with simple bling. There’s no need to wear gaudy jewelry. Bling doesn’t have to be monster costume jewelry nor does it need to be grossly overpriced gold and diamonds. Some of my favorite pieces of bling were found at the Farmer’s Market from a local merchant for under $20. You’ll want your jewelry to accent your beauty, not steal the attention from you.
Enhance your skin. I know not all women like makeup, nor do all husbands. However, even a natural hint of color can brighten up your face and give you a confidence boost. If you have a Bare Escentuals store near you, I highly recommend you go in for a consultation. I was a Community Leader for the Makeup Tips 101 beauty board at iVillage.com for a couple of years, had my own Mary Kay and BeautiControl businesses and have done makeup for weddings and proms. In my opinion, Bare Escentuals mineral make up is the best I have ever tried. It gives a natural glow without looking like you’re wearing makeup. Just a hint of blush on the apple of your cheeks and some light lip gloss can do wonders!
Get Dressed first thing in the morning. I know it’s tempting to homeschool in your jammies, but there’s more potential in your day when you get dressed in confident clothes before you start the day. Staying in pj’s keeps us too relaxed and we want to make the most of our day.
Be ready when he gets home. I don’t mean just dressed and with makeup on. I mean really ‘be ready’ for him when he gets home. Get your mind wrapped around him before he enters the door. Look forward to him coming home and he’ll know he’s truly welcome when he gets there…welcomed by a confident, sexy woman.
Kiss your man! I’m not talking about a peck on the cheek, I’m talking about a smooth, hot, sexy kiss just for him. This means you’ll need to brush and floss before he gets home. No morning coffee smell or fish sticks from lunch. Yuck! You can sweeten your breath by having sweet fruit after a mild lunch. If you have pizza at noon, you’ll still have garlic breath even after brushing.
“Umm, Lisa..a hot, sexy kiss? But that means he’ll want ‘you know what’ that night.”
We don’t have to be frumpy, we can be sexy Christian women! There’s nothing wrong with being a hottie. And home wreckers are less likely to go after your man when she sees a hot sexy confident wife who is steamy hot for her husband.
