The key to buying plus size lingerie is to make sure it feels sexy but also to consider comfort. If you’re a comfortable, you will be much more likely to feel sexy. At the end of a long day it's important that you could be feeling comfortable.  Of course you should, and that is why you must take your time when selecting a size, and the right style and cut.


If you do not like wearing thongs or thong sets, don’t buy them! There are plenty of other lingerie outfits that are just as sexy.  If you want full coverage from a bra, then don’t buy a skimpy bra that won’t offer you any support.


Be A Confident Woman

There is something to be said about wearing your plus size lingerie with a smile. If you don’t’ fit in the plus size lingerie, you won’t be smiling, so make sure the plus size lingerie fits before you purchase it.


Buying sexy underwear is a MUST for the fuller figured womanIf price is an issue, try shopping for larger sizes of lingerie online. Not only does this help to avoid a dressing room horror story, but the internet can also offer cheaper prices as well. The online market for underwear is robust, and full of choices. You're probably better off for taking a look at the lingerie offerings online before going to your local store - if nothing else, you'll be aware of the best prices you can get by shopping around.


Another tip is to buy quality fabrics, such as satin or silk. Often lingerie is made out of cheap fabric which can be irritating to wear, and fall apart after only a few washes. Even if the plus size lingerie is just for a special occasion, it’s still worth while to invest in a quality fabric.  Silk is a great fabric to buy, and most of the expensive lingerie ranges now offer silk, so don’t be afraid to grab yourself a nice silk lingerie set for that special night with the husband.


Buying, and wearing any clothing will always comes down to individual tastes, which will obviously differ.


Once you get the hang of what fabrics feel good, and what cuts are comfortable, then you can invest in the sexy lingerie of your dreams.

Go for it!
