Plus Size Lingerie

Many stores that sell lingerie are behind the times. They are still catering to that stereotype of the skinny fashion model. In fact, 40% of American women wear lingerie in a size 14 or larger. For the purpose of this article, we will define plus size lingerie as being a size 14 or greater. When a size and number isn't given, as in the case of something being labeled by letter, then plus size lingerie will refer to a size of 1X or higher.

When it comes to retail brick-and-mortar lingerie stores, you probably aren't going to find as many options. With the Internet, you are able to shop through specialized lingerie stores that cater to all different special kinds of women. Here, you are most likely to find the plus sized lingerie that you are looking for.

In addition, you are not limited to your choice. In the past, plus size lingerie generally was made to look plain and practical, and not a lot of emphasis on delicate design, comfort or fashion was put into the process. However, that is simply not true any more. The fact is that the demand for lingerie in the plus size has increased over the years, and many designers and manufacturers have had to respond to this increase in demand.

These days, there are a variety of different fabrics, styles, colors and other choices available to the woman who is looking for plus size lingerie. Some of the more popular items in this category include sheer lace tops and stockings, patent leather plus bustiers, satin plus bras, seamless plus bodystockings and much more.

It is important to note that you should be careful before purchasing any lingerie in a plus size. Make sure that it has the proper fit for your body. Your best option in this case is to try it on before you buy. If this is not available, because you are purchasing online, then make sure to consult with the store that you're looking at, so you can familiarize yourself with the refund policy.

Also, if a website has a size chart to consult with, all the better. In this instance, you can match up your bust, waste, hips and equivalent dress size to give you your best chance of purchasing the right size of lingerie. For example, a woman that would purchase a 2x size lingerie would generally have a bust between 42 and 45, a waist between 34 and 37, hips between 44 and 47, and a dress size between 20 and 22.
