Unlike most people in the world, you prefer to be inconspicuous. The problem with being physically attractive is that people of the opposite sex may be attracted to you and may want to talk with you. If you are not much of a people person and do not want so much attention, then you may want to keep a low profile of yourself, without damaging your reputation or health, because you believe that inner qualities, like health and humility, are more noble qualities than vanity. And by making yourself appear unattractive physically, you can focus more attention on other people than on your own ego.
This guide is written for people, focusing on overweight or obese women, who are trying to lose weight, because they have a family history of metabolic disorders and/or cardiovascular disease or are likely at risk of getting those diseases (though, those diseases are not necessarily tied to obesity, as even normal-weight people can get Type II diabetes), but nevertheless like the plainness or unattractiveness of being plump. This guide is written, so these people can have the best of both worlds.
1. Wear comfortable, loose-fitting garments.
As you are losing weight, your body will get slimmer. Many people find slim bodies attractive and sexy. The problem is, you don't want eyes ogling at your body, especially at your curves and breasts. You don't want to be overweight again, because that creates health problems. So, what do you do? You wear light-colored, comfortable, loose-fitting garments! They give you the appearance of being fat without actually being fat! They also cover your body from your neckline to your ankles.
2. Make your hair as plain and unadorned as possible.
Plain and unadorned hair is very simple to do. Just wash your hair once every few days, so your hair does not get too stringy and oily. Comb your hair too to avoid tangles. You do not have to cut the hair at all. Just let it grow out, and put the big mass of hair in a huge bun or pompadour on top of your head when you are in public. Not many people find that look attractive or trendy, which is what you want.
3. Wear a headscarf.
If you do not want to expose your hair because some men may find long hair sexy, then you may wear a headscarf that wraps around your hair. The headscarf does two things. First, it removes hair out of your face and holds all your hair together in one place. Second, men with hair fetish will not be able to use your hair as a source of sexual excitement.
If you are a woman of faith, then you are in luck. The three major world religions, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, either require or recommend that women cover their heads. Wearing a headscarf is just an expression of your faith. However, this behavior of requiring or recommending women to wear headscarves occurs more often in ancient, traditional denominations than in more progressive, modern ones.
If you are not affiliated with organized religion, or if your religion does not require a headscarf, but like the plainness that the headscarf offers, then you may just choose a black, gray, or white headscarf and cover your head with it.
4. Never wear make-up.
The whole purpose of make-up is to make oneself look better. As one uses make-up, one spends too much time in front of the mirror. To remove yourself from being too self-absorbed or self-conscious, you may choose to avoid make-up altogether. Instead of applying make-up, you wash your face regularly with just water and a hand towel. This is to keep your face clean and refreshed every morning and while you are sleeping.
5. Wear glasses, not contacts.
If you have less-than-correct vision, then you may want to wear glasses, not contacts. Buy glasses with economics, comfort, and durability in mind. If you are very near-sighted, then you'd expect that the lens will be very thick and heavy. With health insurance, you may be able to afford glasses that compensate your near-sightedness and are made from light-weight materials. Wearing glasses is very useful, if you operate in a chemical laboratory.
6. Never wear jewelry.
Jewelry attracts too much attention. Remember, you want to dress yourself as plainly as possible. So, you have to avoid all jewelry. No rings of any kind, necklaces, bracelets or anklets.
7. Never wear perfume.
While jewelry can attract attention by sight, perfume can attract attention by smell. If you do not want to attract so much attention from people, especially men, then you have to avoid wearing perfume. Just keep good body hygiene. Wash your hands before and after you eat. Wash your body in the morning. Definitely wash your body at night, so you don't contaminate the bed sheets.
