Going shopping at a department store and have trouble finding the right fit, or standard sizing? Believe me, plus women have a hard time finding perfect fitting lingerie.

I have a friend who has always been a plus size and has always been cribbing about not getting her lingerie size. She always questioned me, “Does this means that because I am a curvaceous, voluptuous woman I don’t get the right to look sexy?”

Well, that isn’t the case anymore! I told her the same. With time lingerie brands have learned to acknowledge plus sizes. In fact, there are whole fashion ranges that make plus size outfits, dresses and even Women’s Plus Size Lingeries. 

Plus size lingerie is basically designed to accommodate a more generous figure. And that exactly is what my friend needed and that’s precisely what you need if you are a plus size.

Plus Size Women and Lingerie

Typically, plus size bras have a wider band, comparative bra cups that have ample coverage, wider straps and other intuitive design inclusions that are meant to keep full-figured women comfortable.

The designing of a plus size bra is done keeping a really curvaceous body in mind. This, in turn, means that plus size lingerie is meant to fit better than a standard bra or panty by simply designing it to a larger size.

Compared to when my friend and I were growing, things have become way easier now with so many options for even plus size people. And it is not just the size of these plus size bras and pantiesit is also the design, fabric and whole attempt to sexy up things. Yes, brands have taken up the responsibility to oomph things up for full-sized women and give them some sexy time wearing lingerie because even plus size is sexy.

Plus size bras are designed for:

  • Women having full figures or plus size
  • Women who wear bra bands anywhere between 38 to 42 and even larger.
  • Anyone can wear a plus size bra. However, these kinds of bras and panties are typically designed for full-sized women. Therefore women who usually wear smaller sizes won’t find these bras ideal because of their size and special designs.
  • Plus size women tend to have different body type and sometimes may find that the proportions of a plus size bra aren’t ideal. A woman could have a standard body type but might be plus size from hips, bootie or thighs. In such a case the plus size bras and panties have a lot of options.
