Where to Buy Sexy Plus Size Lingerie

April 19, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 168

Over the last 50 years, the size of the average woman has been fluctuating. In the 50's a size 4 was considered the smallest dress size for a woman and as such, most women were within the range of medium to large which was acceptable to society. In the ninety's, the slim woman's figure was the ideal shape most people in society were attracted to. Models such as Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell were the toast of society because of their figure. Mothers aspired to be like them, while their teenage daughters starved themselves thin.

This trend continued until recently, when fashion houses realized the untapped potential for the plus sized market. Meanwhile, men who had long appreciated curvy and luscious women started voicing out their preferences. A few celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian and Beyoncé even became famous for their derriere. Suddenly, society has embraced the curvy woman.

Though curvy women and their apparel are here to stay, one aspect a lot of plus sized women worry about is the ability to find well-fitting lingerie. Fortunately, fashion houses such as Tatiana Fashions, Playtex and Wonderbra have designed a whole line of plus sized lingerie which are readily available. They range from minimizer bras to push-up bras designed especially for the plus sized woman. Sizes range from A cup all the way to HH cup on special delivery.

Large retail stores like Macy's and Wal-Mart are making efforts to expand their line of plus sized lingerie. However, it is still quite difficult to get all plus sizes. Though there are special bra stores where women can be measured and fitted, their prices are usually high. There are also a few shops online that cater to the needs of plus size ladies at affordable prices.

The most important thing every woman should know before buying online is her actual bra size. Women shopping online should also note that bra and corset sizes vary. It is often the rule of thumb to buy one size up when purchasing a corset since they tend to be a little smaller in shape. There are a lot of websites online which display actual tables of bra and lingerie sizes so it is much easier to know one's size. With the click of a button, every woman can buy exactly what she desires from the comfort of her home.

Now, the curvy plus sized woman can also step out knowing that she looks not only beautiful, but sexy in her lingerie.
