Tips for Wearing Lingerie for the Full-Figured Gal
How do you get over the hurdle of buying the right lingerie for your body type? When you’re plus size, you either find something that is 2 sizes too big or 2 sizes too small, right? Well-endowed women now have a reason to rejoice, they have become a fashionably, interesting size. Designers and fashion gurus have realized there is a growing market for plus size garments and added the extra inches. Sexiness and has finally acknowledged the femininity and seductiveness of the full curves. You want something that is super sexy, pretty… and flattering to your body style.
I hear women describe their insecurities on a daily basis. Most often it’s due to insecurities because of their thighs, their butt, or their visible belly outlines. But I often wonder if these ideas result directly from our fears of appearing vulnerable. Because being fat is still so stigmatized. Being seen in items of clothing that are more revealing becomes a terrifying concept. Swimsuits, lingerie and any other level of nudity is avoided. The thought of wearing a bikini, a sexy bra and panty set or even a tank top can make their skin crawl.
There is beauty in being vulnerable and usually when you see the beauty within yourself, it brings an essence of confidence that your lover is even more attracted to. Embracing the more delicate side of femininity can be empowering. In an age when we know that feminism is all about equality and the freedom to be ourselves — to be any type of woman — showing off the more vulnerable aspects of our personalities can result in newfound strength.
Some women find that wearing lingerie an exercise in empowerment. Yes, it can make you feel vulnerable or like you are putting your imperfections on display. But realize that in being kind to, or in loving your body and accepting your size, you need to put yourself on display (even if it’s just in front of the mirror). And luckily, there are a lot of amazing brands and designers catering to that need.
When trying to determine the right size lingerie to buy, keep these tips in mind.
Pay Attention. What color or style is in your closet? Do you wear jewel tones? Do you wear pastels? Do you look sexy in red? Does purple make you look like a goddess? Pay attention to the clothes you wear when you go out to dinner with your mate or with girlfriends.
Your Panty Drawer. Do you wear cheeky shorts or thongs? Are you a bikini panty, boy shorts, or a g-string person. (Granny panties should be taken out of the equation. Those are strictly for comfort and for emergencies.) What style of bras do you wear for comfort or when you have a special night.
Overall Style. Some women love a feminine, vintage or romantic look. Some women prefer a more sophisticated or darker look. If you really want to wear it, feel super confident and be excited, buy something that you will wear. Ask yourself, “Does this look comfortable?” “Does this feel itchy or scratchy?” “Does this look like it fits in with your overall style?” Itchy and scratchy lace can really ruin a moment.
Tights and Hosiery: Knowing your height is important. You don’t want hosiery that is way too long or way too short! Depending on the look you are trying to achieve, fishnets, thigh highs, or vintage style with lines down the back are an easy way to dress up a pretty bra and panty set you love. Wearing a garter, hose and heals dress up any outfit or lingerie choice, and make your legs look sexy – no matter how tall or short you are.
Extras: A corset or bustier have to be physically tried on for the right sizing, many run small. They require so much more precision. So, if you can, opt for a baby doll, chemise, slip or robe. Those will work great on a curvy body and the success rate will be so much better!
