Lingerie can sometimes be an afterthought when it comes to making the decision on what to wear today but it shouldn’t be – it acts as a base for your outwear, gives shape and comfort and makes you feel fabulous when needed. So to move women away from the underwear afterthought here I have compiled a list of what I consider to be the top five plus size lingerie retailers.
In no specific order of preference, these are my top recommended lingerie retailers. What they provide is the most comprehensive service for plus size women, I have outlined their specialism and where you can find them. All the sites were chosen on their collections, accessibility when buying and customer service.
Bravissimo – specialists in providing beautiful lingerie for the well endowed woman online and in-store. Bravissimo came about after the frustrations of one woman trying to find a bra that looked less like a parachute and more like a beautifully decorated cup cake! Bravissimo covers all you need, with bright colours, comfort wear and sexy lingerie in sizes D to KK cup and 40 back. You can also request a catalogue so you can browse at your own leisure in the comfort of your own home.
Plus Size Lingerie UK – is an online retailer specialising in sexy lingerie for the plus size individual. This website was created by a curvy lady for curvy ladies; her passion is to provide beautiful and sexy lingerie so you feel wonderful. The collection has corsets, baby dolls, chemises and stuff for fun too! I’ll let your imagination do the work on that one! They promise discretion and the highest quality and if you do not feel comfortable ordering online, they have a friendly service to take your order by phone!
Simply Yours – renowned online retailer of gorgeous underwear for curvy ladies. They have a great collection of lingerie, including shape wear created by Gok Wan, sizes up to 50K, swimwear, night wear and sports bras. They specialise in providing comfort and properly fitting underwear for women up to a size 38 and they do it well.
Figleaves are experts in lingerie. They cater for all sizes but have a wonderful collection specifically for women size DD and above. They not only make their own bras but also act as a platform for branded wear, so if it’s labels that you love, they have it covered. The designer collection is extensive and caters to plus size women. I adore their unique designs, like Midnight Grace and Fantasie range
Marks and Spencer – A retailer now worthy of this list due to their new commitment to their customers after women activists informed the nation of the surcharge M&S were putting on their larger bras! Now all their bras cost the same and not only this but they do have a fantastic range for all ages of all sizes. You can shop by category to specify exactly what you are looking for, whether it be shape wear, DD plus, sports bras or nightwear. Their lingerie collection is extensive, especially online where everything is subcategorised, even to ‘minimiser bras’ and ‘support bras’.
