Buying plus size lingerie can be a daunting task as sites and stores often don’t have trained staff to answer your questions. Here we will attempt to make buying sexy plus size lingerie a fun and enjoyable experience. The first thing to remember is nothing takes the place of trying plus size lingerie on and while web sites are a great place to shop you have to know what to ask to make sure you get what are looking for. In most respects buying plus size lingerie is no different than buying lingerie in misses sizes. The key is knowing what questions to ask and why?
Lingerie is made for plus size women and you need to be certain that you have some idea what you are looking for before starting your shopping experience. Is this lingerie for a special occasion or just because you are in the mood for some new lingerie. What kind of lingerie do you wear now and what styles of lingerie do you prefer. While you certainly don’t have to have all the answers before you enter a lingerie boutique, this article will attempt to get you thinking about the many reasons you should buy sexy lingerie. Plus size lingerie can be divided into two categories and in my opinion one is preferable to the other. The first category I will call the modest line of plus size lingerie, modest because it is not as revealing, tends to have more fabric and in more matronly in appearance. While there is a place for this lingerie I don’t think it serves plus size women very well. The other category of plus size lingerie is more revealing, sheer and form fitting and suggestive. Which ever style you prefer keep in mind a couple of things. Sizing in plus size lingerie can be 1X through 6X and if you know your size you can begin trying on items in your size range. If not take a couple of sizes into the dressing room and experiment. Beware the one size fits most sizing which many of the less expensive lines utilize as it is imperative that you try on as one size fits most in queen sizes can be anybody’s guess. While you will save money, you want to be sure the lingerie fits and is in line with how you want to look.
The color of your lingerie both says something about you and your preferences but just like outerwear you want to stick to colors that are compatible with your skin tone as well as something you consider pretty. Black lingerie is always a favorite while white is more problematic particularly if you have pale skin tones or simply need a bit of time in the sun or at the tanning booth. Hot colors like hot pink, red, purple and neon colors like orange and neon green may work depending on your tastes. Try and avoid large floral prints, wild once in a life time prints that the manufacturer decided was going to be in this season and the like. Although you may not be wearing this lingerie every day, you still want to like it six months from now.
Finally we come to styles and again preference is up to you although I suggest you try stretch fabrics that are compelling to look at as well as comfortable. Women look great in fishnet, sheer and stretch lace regardless of size, color or any other characteristic. Try a bodystocking or perhaps a stretch fishnet chemise in black. Many of the manufacturers have pictures of the garment on the hang tags and spend a little time seeing what other plus size women look like in these garments to see if you might like in that style. Ask your husband, boyfriend or girlfriend what they think and take your time looking about the store or online. Make it fun because it is all about fun and looking fabulous.
