Plus Sized Lingerie Buying Tips

Mar 1, 2008
When it comes to buying plus sized lingerie, there are more options available now than ever before, thanks to online shopping, and an increased awareness among manufacturers of the demand for sophisticated, sexy plus sized clothing. Fifty percent of all American women wear a size 14 or greater, and if you count yourself among this majority, do not be discouraged by those photos of skinny, airbrushed women modeling garters and camisoles.

Regardless of your body type, it is possible to look sleek and sexy in your favorite lingerie. While you shop, keep in mind that the proper fit will enhance your mood and boost your confidence, but that squeezing into an outfit that is too tight and constrictive will have the opposite effect.

The first tip for creating a slender silhouette is to consider a monochromatic ensemble. It is true that black, as well as darker colors in general can have a slimming effect, but it is also true that wearing any color head to toe creates a uniform, slender effect, particularly when mixed textures like leather and lace are thrown in. For an extra one color punch, be sure to match your pantyhose, stockings, or body stockings, as well as your slippers or high heels to your outfit as well.

Whether or you not you opt for just one color, the next important consideration is determining your body type. Are you a triangle, an inverted triangle, an oval, a rectangle, or an hourglass? If you are a rectangle, than you have a short waistline, which can be easily improved by wearing tapered styles that emphasize the waistline you do have.

If you are an oval, than most of your weight is likely carried around your middle section, and if so, you should draw the eye up towards the neck area by wearing a stunning top and equally stunning jewelry. Do not cinch your waist, as this will only draw attention to the area.

Triangles are heavy on the bottom and small on top, while inverted triangles are just the opposite. The best strategy for these body types is to emphasize the smaller area. For example, a triangle who is small on top should wear a slimming bottom and a gorgeous top, while an inverted triangle should wear a simple top and a stunning bottom piece.

If you are an hourglass, you are lucky because your body is evenly proportioned, so anything goes. Of course, if you happen to have a larger chest or a little extra around the middle, than you should follow some of the above tips.

Regardless of your body type, wearing plus sized lingerie is all about looking and feeling sexy and confident.
